Let me start by saying that this Author is one of my favourites and I love her books.

However, I don't have many good things to say about this story. It was quite boring and Magnus was one of the least likeable MC's I have ever read, I wish he was out of the picture for good, I love Dane and I really wish he had a different love interest.

This is only my humble, personal opinion, and I'm sure many other readers disagree with me, which is entirely fine.
Even when this was a very disappointed story f

A student with a crush on his professor may not be anything new, but Dane, whom I met in the previous book, finally has the means to do something about his devotion to Magnus - and once he is handed the opportunity he proceeds without hesitation. The sexy professor, on the other hand, has so many issues stemming from his abusive past that any kind of involvement beyond casual sex, and then only when he is in absolute control, is entirely impossible for him. With Dane wanting forever, and Magnus ...more

It's important to remember that if you want to have a fulfilling life you can't dwell on the past. Good or bad, the past is gone; there's nothing any of us can do to change it. All we can do is look ahead. Professor Magnus Sofokleous of Carol Lynne's 'A Lesson Learned' needs to accept this concept. When he and his teaching assistant, Dane Jefferson, go away on a project, Magnus is faced with an important decision: either cling stubbornly to the pain of the past, or open up and accept the present ...more
I didn't hate it, but I didn't like it.

Magnus isn't particularly likable, and his 'issues' don't change that. This isn't hurt/comfort - it's an 'I've had a bad childhood that I won't really explain and we won't explore, but it sucked and I'm perpetually comparing my upbringing to yours and I resent you for your happy childhood, but we'll never discuss that, I use people and throw them away because I'm damaged, let's screw' story.
Dane's infatuation seems to be just that - an infatuation. The auth

This is not good. It's that Hallmark movie special kind of awkward. I'm also not sure how I feel about Magnus being into BDSM bc of childhood abuse. Umm... these things don't link like that. Also, this older, highly educated man doesn't believe in love until 2 weeks with his TA in which he lets go of his personal ethics and all love hang ups? I just can't. Just no.
I give it a 3.5

I really enjoyed Dane. He's a sweet, likable guy and I loved all the details of Barrett House, the plantation and the history of Dane's ancestor and what happened there. The hunt that he and Magnus are on is interesting and scouring the house and island for clues during the Christmas holiday was an unusual setting, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

Uncle Fallon is a unique secondary character and I hope to see him again in the future. We do get to see a few old favorite characters at

mwahahaha... I didn't see that ... coming..

So why am I rating at 3 stars..

Ok, so the characters are good.. but they did need a little fleshing out... we do know them from previous books so it links into the series, but I honestly feel this one veered away from the main thread of the 'campus'.. BUT yes it was a campus cravings story..

The story was a little underdeveloped to my mind also.. With the new setting there was a need to flesh this a bit more so i as a reader could connect to the story a

Nerdy boy Dane is in love with his professor Magnus Sofokleus. Prof S submits a request for a grant that ends up in Dane's lap and Dane insists that he gets to go with Prof S for the dig. It's on Dane's family's plantation and they are working together to uncover some Native American history.

The book was really good and the mystery aspect of it was great too! The whole book was full of emotion and a must read!
