Alpha Possessive Heroes
I saw this on amazon.. the storyline is a little predictable but I'm a sucker for sexy covers and the hero Liam sounds yummy.. so what the heck I bought the damn book! lol.

Liam and Sarah had an instant attraction..the sexual tension was all over the book I had a hard time putting it down! The story flows good and I like Liam's character- sexy, protective, possessive and a total swoonworthy! I enjoy reading his pov specially when he's talking to himself and trying to hold off his attraction to Sa

For me it was just too predictable, you kind of knew where the story was going from the very first meeting between the two characters, was really no build up..
If I was rating the cover though now that would get my 5 star hotness of approval..

4.5 stars!
Teach Me was a short, enjoyable read! I thought the relationship between Liam & Sarah moved extremely fast and they could have been more discreet. But he was hot and had me at "Hi puppy." as well! ; )
I would like more of them and would love a second book!

This had the potential. Liam was yummy. Yes it was predictable, and that wasn't my issue. It didn't flow very well, it sounded cheesy. It just didnt do it for me :(

A really cute and short story about a student and her teacher!
What's not to like? : )

Actual Rating: 4.5

This was an amazing read. First, I got to say that the cover is amazing because it is a cover of sexy hero. This is a student-teacher relationship story about Liam Downs and Sarah Thomas. The story flowed perfectly and contained some steamy scenes.

Sarah Thomas is a girl who is about to graduate with a creative writing major. In the beginning of the book, I found her character to be quite annoying as she was not able to make up her mind whenever she was around Liam. However, a

Not even sure how I came to have this book to read but picked it up for a quick read over the weekend (waiting for a table in a restaurant, in fact). Boy, did it need an editor...typos all over the place, grammar issues my 5th grader could edit, words misused and while the story between Liam and Sarah was sweet enough (except jobs seem to grow on trees for Liam which was weird)....the story line with Matt was all over the place...he was jealous, controlling, apparently a sex machine who needed ...more

This has so, so much potential. It would've been better if it wasn't so rushed and if so much drama wasn't packed into such a short space; it felt like I was jumping from one dramatic event to the next one in a matter of two lines and I just couldn't get the suspensfulness that I wanted from it - I didn't really feel scared at all for the couple (they have so much potential, too!). I'm overall disappointed in this book because there really is so, so much potential and it just wasn't executed ...more

Let's just say when I found out Liam had a tattoo I was a goner, "his outstretched arm acquired long, lean muscles, and tattoos covering from his wrist to the top of his shoulder." Also he's just so damn polite you can't help but love him right off, "looks like ya got yourself a little scratch, darling. I'm sorry. We didn't see ya coming. Let me take care of that." Ugh Matt I didn't really like him can't he see that Liam and Sarah have something going on and need to go do something elsewhere, ...more

Overall, I enjoyed this book as a cute, fast, read while procrastinating. Read it if you wanna fill up a little bit of time. I fell in love with Liam, but I wasn't so happy with Sarah. I didn't agree with a lot of the stuff she did...why didn't she just break up with Matt as soon as she met Liam?? It just made the love story seem dirty if you know what I mean. Also, she got mad at Matt for cheating on her but she did the same thing...pot calling the kettle black, much? And she kept calling Jamie ...more

I paid 77p for his on amazon and didn't expect much...... But, I really enjoyed it! A lively story with fantastic characters. One sinister bad boyfriend, a funny gay housemate and a best friend who is a real skank, add the hottie teacher who's moved in next door and you'll enjoy the book. It's a sweet east storyline, easy to follow, only downfall for me was the ending, There is no indication as to where this story line is heading, or how it will end, but it would help if the write would indicate ...more

A classic meet-cute scenario with a twist. Girl stumbles over dog, finds guy attractive, guy finds girl attractive, and she turns out to be his student. CLASSIC!

Sarah always thought life was simple until she meets her neighbor Liam.

Liam is smoking hot and tattooed. Need I explain more!

I know most people can relate to having a crush on at least one of their teachers growing up. It never fails, but man I wish I could of had one that was Liam hot.

Great story but impatiently waiting for the next sto

This was a cute little story. It's written in interchanging POV's of Sarah & Liam.

The real issue here is the editing. It's nonexistent. I don't care about misplaced commas, or lack there of, but there were spelling and verb tense errors. Example: "that was impressed" instead of "impressive."

While the editing errors were torturous to read, I still liked the story and would read others by this author. Hey, I'll even volunteer to edit her other books! Seriously!!

Four-star for the story itself, not for the need for editing, which should bring the rating down at least one star if not more. Fun novella with yummy, young professor next door. Love the gay roommate, the dogs, the sensible collegiate trying to balance a conscience and lust-drive and loved to hate the bone-head jock and the ditsy once-best-friend. Read in a few hours with many interruptions 'cuz the story was direct enough to withstand frequent interruptions.

I began reading the sample on On the very first page there were grammatical mistakes and they did not stop there. I couldn't handle reading past the first three pages. The writing style is just not for me. It's very play-by-play, and just doesn't have that realistic 'flow' of words that I like. I really do like the synopsis, though.
Maddevi *-*solemnly swears that she is up to no good*-*
god this is so bad

Full of spelling mistakes (what the hell are shaky shoulders when you are denying something??), predictable plot lines, and a really unlikable heroine. She cheats on her boyfriend multiple times and is shocked when he does it to her.

And the gay best friend was so stereotype. It annoyed the hell out of me.

This was not handled well.

For a New Adult book this was a sweet story. Two people who are close in age find love. Their attraction to each other have them going against the rules to be together. A little, angst, a little drama, a some sexy times keeps the reader interested even though the book needs to be edited for errors.

I loved the book. I wish it would have been longer though. it surprised me when I found out it was based in Monticello though. I am actually from Crossett so I am familiar with all the town's listed in the book.

Good book, good story. Again, this author needs to get a better copy editor to check the grammar/spelling. The cover lured me in - story kept me reading, but I almost gave up reading due to the errors.

This author has GREAT potential and I wish them luck!

For some reason I didn't enjoy this as much as Alla Kar's other novel, "Make Me Yours". It was an okay novel, but there were things that made me dislike the novel overall. I am still a huge fan of Kar, though, so I will be looking out for more of her novels in the future!

This book was filled with spelling errors, bad grammar and a poor storyline. It just wasn't believable (and really needed a good editor!).
