Take it off. Take it all off.

To say Harlan Sheppard is hot for teacher would be the understatement of the year. Working closely with Professor Sawyer Addison has taught Harlan one thing. Persistence doesn t always pay off. With graduation only a day away, Harlan is willing to do anything to get the object of his affection to see him as more than just another student.

In the past, I have really enjoyed reading books written by Lena Matthews. She writes wonderful interracial m/f romances and just great romances in general. I was happily surprised when I noticed that she wrote, You can leave your hat on, which is a m/m erotic romance. I was very curious if she could cross over into this genre easily. Why did I ever doubt her? You can leave your hat on, is not only a fun and well-written story, but a very sexy one too. I hope this is a first of many that she wri
Very likable characters, steamy sex scenes and a bit of tension to keep the story interesting. I wish this book was longer.

I really like this story. It isn't very long and I wouldn't mind revisiting them in a sequel or two. I liked the dialog and the writing, it was fast and witty. I liked both characters and I liked the setting. It was a good read and I should have expected as much from Lena Matthews.

The TA is crushing on his Prof , but his Prof keeps things professional until the day before graduation Harlan ups the stakes and sends his sexy professor a very sexy video! ( side note, stupid, stupid thing to do...)
It was a sexy short, but I thought Sawyer ( the Prof) was an ass and I'm not sure if Harlan knew how D Sawyer is, since at one point Sawyer says Harlan probably doesn't know how dominant he is.
All I can say, is he resisted for all those years, he could have resisted a few more days

File under "The blurb sounded hot as hell, but the execution left me cold." The writing wasn't beyond hope, just pretty much forgettable. "It was okay" seems like a fair description, thus the two stars.

Smokin' hot story about a professor and his graduating TA who also happens to be a stripper on the side. Short but steamy with Sawyer and Harlan literally dancing around each other!
Elisa Rolle
You Can Leave Your Hat On is what the title promised, a naughty little novella on a stripper and his lover. The starting point of the story is one I already see in the past, a young and handsome College TA, Harlan, who has the hots for his even more handsome, a slightly older, College professor, Sawyer. The book respects the rules of a May / December romance plus the College setting with an Office Affairs theme... the shorten the thing, this is the classical romance by the rule, with the twist o ...more

This is a short but scorching hot fantasy story about a sexy TA that finally snags the seemingly prim and proper professor. The characters were fun, incredibly hot, and likable even as they all veered into fantasy. The writing was tight and concise with no glaring mistakes but clearly shares my affinity and love for commas and as much as it may pain me to say this, it would be ok to include a few less. Overall this was an entertaining and easy to read story that comes in ~60 pages but includes s ...more

The story was interesting enough, but it lacked a sound conclusion. I'm not sure if it is a book#2 or not, but the book needed a little more of a backup story. Other than that, the book was good, short and easy to read.

3.5 out of 5

Whoa. Hot and very sexy. I enjoyed every minute of this novella. The cover picture really sets the feel of this story. Just wish I could have been a fly on the wall ;)
