The lengths I will go to in an attempt to find a story about adults falling in love where one happens to be in the other's class. Bad, bad lengths. An age-appropriate student/teacher romance, I'm promised, but where was the intellectual connection, or even any appreciation for the educational aspect? Because between all the heavy making out and sexing, somebody forgot to actually illustrate why they're in love. This is probably my fault for thinking a romance novel could transcend its genre, but ...more
Horrible! Horrible! Horrible!
This book was so cheesy it's almost embarrassing. I had a real problem with how the couple first meets-he's a high school teacher, she's one of his students-and even though they don't get together until years later, their relationship is still just creepy. He's forever following her around, totally ignoring anything she says, and she's always whining about how they can't be together and fighting(but not too hard)any time he tries to touch her. Ugh, so tacky. And the

Recommends it for: Only the desperate Sandra Brown fans
Recommended to Tanya by: I don't even know who made me buy a bunch of her books. I think I'm going to sell/give them all away.

Rating 3.5
I enjoyed the book, it was short & enjoyable and kind of had a forbidden aspect to it because they were student/teacher but older. The heroine was finally getting a degree after her divorce & was kind of bitter about men, after all she put her husband through school, was practically a servant for him, then he left.
She's quite happy to see her old high-school teacher since she had a major crush on him and somewhere deep within her he is the man she's always compared everyone too
Sandra Brown is a favorite author of mine, though her latest novels feature too little romance for my taste. This is one of her earlier works when romance was all she wrote.
My review:
Deborah Vespo
Shelley Browning is going to school and trying to remake a life for herself after a bad divorce. She takes a class with professor, Grant Chapman, a man who she knew from years earlier who was actually one of her high school teachers. A man that she had kissed as a young girl. (((shudder))). Now it is years later, and the spark between them is hotter than it was before. He goes after her determined to have her back in his life... blah blah blah. I had a hard time seeing romance in this story, I s ...more

There was no way to redeem this book unless you changed the hero to a completely different man. First of all he kisses his high school student. Yes, you quit afterwards but pervy pervertson I would kick the holy crap out of you (or at least pay someone to do it). Secondly, when they meet again 10 years later this is a time when professors are not supposed to date/have sex with students, which he doesn't think is pertinent to him or his libido. And this is all after he had a scandal that made him ...more

Ann Keller
Any red blooded American girl worth her salt will admit to being infatuated with one or more of her male high school teachers, but what might have happened if that innocent fascination were taken to the next level? On impulse, high school teacher, Grant Chapman, kisses young Shelley Browning and gets more than he bargains for. Her heartfelt response surprises him and Grant swiftly does the right thing, leaving Shelley behind for a new life as a Congressional aide in Washington, DC.

Recommends it for: Romance lovers, 80s lovers, hairy chested guys
Laughable and petty. Anyone can tell how dated it is when the female lead character (whenever she's not getting it on with the dude) fantasizes over the male lead character's forest-y chest and --I'm not done yet-- he likes to show off his hairy torso in the classroom (he's the professor) wearing an almost-all-the-way unbuttoned shirt tucked into tight jeans and cowboy boots (however, the story does take place in Oklahoma). I get the whole "I lust after teacher" vibe, but if a teacher was mine-a ...more

Recommends it for: no one
I fervently wish I could give a negative star rating to this horrible book. Taken off the shelves at the library at random, I abandoned this book part way though. Formulaic, poorly written, (even for a romance), a reinforcement of the steroetype that all women are weak and waiting to be rescued; a total waste of time. I will now open the book at random and type a line demonstrating how awful it is. Page 154: "Never be ashamed of what you are, and show your gratitude by never doubting that you pl ...more

This book deserves zero stars. But because this isn't a thing, I have to give it one star >_>

THIS BOOK MADE ME SO MAD YOU GUYS. Like I alternated between laughing and shaking my head to ugly frowning and going WHY, just WHY. I understand that this book reflects the type of romance that was considered "sexy" at the time but no, just no.

Let's start with why I was curious about this novel. Years ago, I came across it and when I read that this was a "forbidden student-teacher attraction," it p

The Thrill of Victory, this book, A Kiss Remembered and Fanta C are 3 early Brown love stories. Deeply hurt by a disastrous marriage, Shelley Browning is back at a university, a little older and a little wiser. Despite her growing self-awareness, she takes a class taught by Grant Chapman, who--10 years ago-was the best-looking teacher in her high school. He had left to take a job as a congressional aide, but not before a single, unplanned kiss that haunted Shelley as a symbol of "what might have ...more
This is another beautiful romance from Sandra Brown, a classic at best, when this deals with a second chance in romance and higher education. A touching story!
I liked it. The heroine's naivety sometimes made me want to rip my hair out. She could choose and when she did, she was whiny about it, but it was very well written and I fell in love with the hero in the first chapter. Dominant and unyielding(my favorite kind).
I loved how he never gave up on her, even though she didn't know what to choose, but he saw the potential in their reunion. I love the tittle, the book cover. Though, I have to admit, I was kind of hesitant when I read in the description

Very good Book. One I could not put down.
Shelly milovala Granta od strednej školy. Bol to jej učiteľ, asistovala mu pri opravách písomiek (čo ma trochu zarazilo; neviem si predstaviť, že by som spolužiakom opravovala práce namiesto učiteľa; nuž Amerika...). Potom ju jedného dňa pobozkal a odišiel zo školy. Po desiatich rokoch sa s ním opäť stretáva a - čuduj sa svete - zase ako študentka. Hoci má za sebou nevydarené manželstvo, na svojho milovaného učiteľa nikdy nezabudla. Zvyšok recenzie nájdete tu: ...more

Sandra Brown kembali memukauku dengan kepintarannya merangkai cerita. Cerita - cerita yang menakjubkan lahir dari ide-ide dan tangannya yang cekatan. Sempat menyesal baru sekarang mulai baca bukunya. Tapi ya better late than never,right? :)

A Kiss Remembered , buku ke3 Sandra Brown yang kubaca bulan Februari 2011 ini, setelah sebelumnya aku membaca Long Time Coming dan Demon Rumm. Well, yang kutangkap dari ketiga buku ini adalah semuanya cerita yang sangat jarang dibahas dikalangan penulis novel

An Exquisite breath of Spring time fresh air, that radiates & simmers from the Romantic pages... truly a Godsend!!!
THANK God through her Classical Love stories... the life force (beauty),the sweetness &sincerity of First Love is immortalized!!

A Kiss Remembered carried & swept me away & back to days of old or OLD SCHOOL... gone by.

This is an oldie (sounds quite oldfashioned) but also kind of gross (the wet spots on her shirt a bunch of times = ew, then his hairy chest mentioned 20 times= ugh... etc...). I don't mind the "forbidden" idea of teacher/student relationship, I think it's hot, but not the way it was described here. What i didn't like was how mousey and unconfident the heroine was, so I kept thinking she was pressured into a relationship she didn't want to have, even though she secretly did. I also hated how she ...more

A Kiss Remembered by Sandra Brown
Shelley had kissed her teacher, Grant when she was younger. They both knew it was off limits and ended it then.
10 years later: she was back at the university and he was her professor. She had given up pursueing her education and him by marrying Darrell because she couldn't be with the one she loved. She ended up leaving college to go to work so he could get his medical education and career going. After he got his degree he left her. that's when things changed for
I have such mixed feelings about this book. I wasn't sure I was going to like the idea that Shelley and Grant had shared a kiss when she was just 16. He was her teacher at the time. Once I got over that, it wasn't a bad story. In reality, the kiss was once and spontaneous. Grant left the school immediately after because he knew he had overstepped. I had to give him credit for that. Once he sees a much older Shelley, he realizes her has feelings for her and decides to win her over.

I actually lik
I borrowed this book from a coworker of mine. She told me it was a good, quick read. I will agree with her on both counts. Recently I've been having a hard time finding books that make you think. This book may not have had an intricate story line, but she did use words that you kind of had to sit there a think about what they meant. They were far more descriptive than the usual context in books. May just have to find more books by her :)
