A Change of Pace by Tielle St. Clare
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Published May 10th 2011
Available at Amazon.com
I found this book through a recommendation (thanks Elizabetta) after reading a couple very heady stories and needing something lighter. It delivered on the lighter bit but was maybe just a bit too light.
This read a little like porn. There was something going on but it just never really "got" there. Well the sex "got" there but the plot didn't. I'm sitting here still expecting a sequel.
...sexy little professor...
Aiden, the Professor, is likeable and has a few layers. Unfortunately, we don't really get to see what is hinted at in his demeanor. We get glimpses of his intelligence, his warmth and his prickly-ness but none of it really goes anywhere
The man was irritating, annoying and sexy as hell, not to mention completely off limits.
Knox is sexy but his constant verbiage of, "your little ass" or "your little body" started to bug me. It felt a "little" demeaning. I did like his go for it attitude though.
Knox and Aiden (The Professor)have been lusting after each other for some time. When the opportunity arises to explore their physical attraction, they don't hold back, even though Aiden is only interested in something long term. This could have bothered me more, but I really felt that it was just two men, throwing caution to the wind and giving into their needs. There wasn't much analyzing or introspection going on.
A quick paced story that got right to the heart of the action, i.e. sex. There were several POV shifts in mid-stream and lazy sentence structure but the descriptive action kept the story together.
In the end I would recommend this to someone looking for a quick romp. The end left much to be desired, like a firmer conclusion, but it did end happily which is what I asked for.
