Review – Hot For Teacher – Liza James









Back of the Book

High school teacher Tessa Marshall is at a club with her sister celebrating her 40th birthday when the hunk of her dreams walks through the door. He's tall, dark, and oh-so handsome. He's also ten years her junior, which makes him the perfect candidate for a night of smokin' hot birthday sex. Only it quickly becomes apparent the man is special, which scares the hell out of her since nothing can ever come of it. With regret, she slips from the room while he's sleeping, intending never to see him again.

Scott Chapman is captivated by the beautiful Tessa, and though he swore off relationships several years ago, he finds himself instantly drawn to the blonde stunner. He takes her back to his hotel room for the birthday night of her life, and soon realizes their connection is deeper than he'd imagined. When he wakes up the following morning and discovers her gone, he's disappointed. They both find out, however, that fate has a mind of its own.


Tessa was about to go get herself a refill when a familiar hot body stepped into her line of vision.  He smiled, setting her pulse to racing yet again.  “Hi.  I was wondering if I could buy you a drink, maybe sit and chat for few minutes?”
“Um, sure.  Okay.”  Pffft.  Smooth, Tessa.  Real smooth.
“So what are you drinking?”  He reached out for her glass.
She creamed in her panties as that deep masculine voice washed over.  “Chardonnay.”
“Back in a flash.”
Good Lord, his mere voice was enough to send her pink parts into overdrive.  Just imagine what would happen if his lips and tongue joined the party.  Did she say if?  Make that ‘when’, because Tessa knew exactly what she wanted for her birthday.  To be sucked and fucked until she didn’t have enough energy left to lift her arms.
He returned and set her glass on the table before taking the seat Marla had vacated.
“Thank you.”  Tessa met his gaze and smiled, growing wetter by the second.  The urge to slip her hand beneath the table and plunge two fingers into her aching cunt was nearly overpowering.  Squirming in her seat, she gave herself a mental shake, unable to remember the last time she’d been this turned on.
He propped his forearms on the table and leaned in to confess, “No thanks necessary, my motive is purely selfish.  I want you, and I intend to have you, by any means necessary.”
Tessa stared at him for several beats before bursting into laughter.
He grinned.  “Not exactly the response I was hoping for.  Guess I’m not as smooth as I thought I was.”
Once she’d brought it down to a chuckle, Tessa admitted, “Sorry.  It’s just...for a moment I felt like I’d stepped into the pages of a romance novel.”
He leaned back in his chair and picked up his beer.  “That bad, huh?”
    “Not bad, just...unexpected.”  She took a sip of her wine and studied him through lusty eyes.  “Be nice if you tossed me your name.  You know, just in case I need to scream it out later tonight.”

Who says there is no positive about turning 40 – nobody apparently told  High school teacher Tessa Marshall this, as on the night of her birthday – she finds herself out clubbing with her sister and she throws caution to the wind when a hot, studly, drop dead gorgeous younger man gives her the eyes and keeps on giving her the eyes.

Tessa is not the most forthright when it comes to risky behaviour but as her sister said – you are only forty once – what could it hurt – go and enjoy the fruits of the god.

And she most certainly does – again and again for the one night.

Basking in the glow of her one night of pleasurable decadence she is stunned to find her one night stand being introduced to her as the new math teacher. She is not happy. Deciding to take the route most travelled – she does not acknowledge the acquaintance and Scott Chapman is royally pissed.

Scott has not been able to put Tessa out of his mind since his one night of unbelievable bliss, knowing that she is now a colleague, but giving him the cold shoulder – he take matters into his own hands and turns on the charm.

Because - Tessa is one woman he has no desire to ever forget.

What can  I say but totally hot  and totally smoking. Liza James is the alter ego of Donna Marie Rogers and Ms. James voice is one that can rock my world any old time. Her style is a world apart from the small town voice of Rogers and I loved it.

In HOT FOR TEACHER from the first paragraph there was an excitement to the book that I can’t really describe – there was  no pretence to the language or the actions if truth be told – it was down and dirty and it was right up my street. All the characters presented in  this book was well structured, I understood them, I laughed with them and I was on their side in the follies that they get up.

Ms James does not pussy foot around with the plot – it was boy meet girl and totally carnal pleasure from there on in. 

Pick this one up – it certainly hit my spot.

Hot for teacher sounds good! At first I wasn't too sure...I thought Tessa Marshall was going to be with a student, but I was happy to see she's just a modern woman...who knows age only matters if he's under age...a few years this side or that of her own age is fine!
Sounds like it could be a cute book!

Yes, I was hoping it was not teacher/student...:) This one sounds cute!

I really didn't think of it that way - but do get what you mean..

Definitely not underage - and totally hot with himself..

Tessa had to be dragged into the modern world - but she made up for it... in spades

Nope non of that - it was tastefully done and too cute as you said..

"You read one of these books" - how could I resist...

It was brilliant..

E.H, I don't even know what to say...thank you so much for another amazing review! I'm thrilled that you enjoyed HOT FOR TEACHER, I know you wondered if I could write both heartwarming and erotic successfully, and I'm glad I didn't disappoint you.

Everyone, thanks for your comments. I got a little chuckle...I would never think to write a story between a teacher and a student! LOL My hero is actually 29, so no worries. ;-)

If anyone wants to try my erotic alter ego, Liza James, I have a FREE read titled MISCHIEF IN THE GARAGE, which is actually a continuation/bonus scene of MISCHIEF IN THE DARK (my Halloween erotic where they get locked inside a haunted house).

Hey Donna...
I am the first to admit - you do both side of the street damn well....

I love the small town voice - but James just about ring all my bell...

Congrats on a fabulous release..
