Well, I liked it as it is, I was pleasantly surprised by the substance of this story but i would have been great if this was written longer. I mean there's some really meat (figuratively only, ironically enough) in this story and the writing's really good albeit somewhat incomplete. There's a good novel lurking behind this story and I think this would have better off if this has been longer. The elements are already there: great, strong characters, plausible plot, good setting and atmosphere, ...more

This was a great story. Maya is a college sophomore with aspirations of being a romance novelist.

Her writing professor, James Reardon, has given her some criticism about her writing that has discouraged her. Until one day he asks her to enter a writing contest. From there she realizes that the Professor is more than interested in her and a relationship develops.

Although I wish there was more story, what I read, I loved. The characters were well written and very real. What a great story.

I really like this one, though I find the view taken toward romance novels a bit off-putting, both as a romance reader and author--and a bit funny/ironic from an author who writes mostly romance and/or erotica. Anyway, I enjoyed both characters and didn't find the age difference too disturbing. The sex scenes probably weren't as explicit as some of Ms. Kitt's work, but I actually prefer that. I've owned this for about three years and have re-read it a couple of times.

Cute story. Sexy but not as sexy as many stories from Ms. Kitt, but they don't all have to be. And after reading it, I have to wonder if Ms. Kitt is in fact female, lmao! I love that reality was just as good as fantasy, if not better.

This was my second story by Ms Kitt and although not as naughty as Under Mr Nolans Bed it still deserves 3.5 to 4 stars for a well written short story.
