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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

In Sandra Brown's early classic romance, A Kiss Remembered, she told us a gripping and timeless love story. Shelley Browning left her disastrous marriage behind and goes back to college to get her degree. There, she meets her former high school teacher, Grant Chapman, who finished his stint as a congressional aide and returned to teaching himself. The kiss they shared haunted her in her dreams and Grant didn't see any harm to seek her out. Now she's confused more than ever on what was the best f ...more

Quick read and very good writing that are so characteristic of Sandra Brown. One should not forget that the book is written in a different to Sandra's genre that the modern day readers are used to. It was interesting for me to see what her writing was like in her early days as an author.

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

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? :)

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

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.
