Blurb:Gritty. Sexy. Taboo. Melanie Cannon is troubled, desperate, and only eighteen. Taking the fall for a friend, she’s forced into a drug education class, which she expects to be boring as hell. Until Detective Jake Beck walks in as her instructor. Jake knows it’s a mistake to get involved with a high school senior. But their passion is undeniable. Their bond is the kind that lasts forever. Their connection is more than just lust. Jake's willing to risk it all—even when harsh betrayal and ugly secrets threaten everything.
My first read by this author. I do love a forbidden taboo romance read although I have to say this was light on the taboo side for me and not as a big a factor as you would expect in a taboo read, at least for me personally. That been said I really enjoyed it it just wasn't what I expected.
Jake is a cop, and when he meets Melanie as her instructor sparks start flying. The chemistry is strong and I enjoyed watching their relationship develop. Like I've said yes there is a slight taboo side to it but not massivly so that if you are the type of reader who stays away from taboo reads then this would be fine for you aswell.
A quick read I would have really like it to be longer so I could get more depth to the characters, but I still really enjoyed it an will read more from this author.
