Emma lives a very self-destructive life, barely making her way through college. Her world is turned upside down after meeting Mr. Honor, her new history teacher whose idea of discipline may be a little too much for Emma to handle. While trying to figure out their new relationship, they also have to deal with the very real possibility that someone has discovered their secre ...more

This book was so bad I couldn't get past 40 pages, which was a struggle in itself. While I can't say if the spelling and grammar errors were due to the ebook copy I'd gotten, the sentences on their own were bad enough to make me unable to get through most of it. If you enjoy someone who can't write a decent compound sentence, this book is for you! The fact that a writer would make constant use of 3-5 word sentences and sentence fragments left me feeling like I was in a car with a student driver ...more

Bad. Really bad. I couldn’t get past first 30 pages.


The first thing that rubbed me wrong was writing. See for yourself:

I grabbed my old yearbook and walked into the kitchen for a drink. I slid the milk out of the way and grabbed a can of soda, along with a cheap bottle of vodka. I carried everything into the living and clicked on the television. I watched on old romance movie as I drank a small swig from the bottle.

★★★★★! I highly recommend this series. I couldn’t put it down.

Wonderful! I looked at this series for weeks not realizing that it would be one of the most enjoyable and sexiest books/series I have ever read. Hero, William Honor (29 years/dark brown hair/blue eyes) is better than Christian Grey (!) in class with Gideon Cross, albeit darker. He will stay with you for awhile, especially book 2 written from his POV. I wish Ms. Mummert would let us know how many books total… will a Book 5/6 end series
Huh's is the theme...

Huh #1 : The FMC is supposed to be a twenty-one-year-old college senior and a social outcast.

She tells us she's a social pariah," sitting alone and friendless for the last five years since she moved from Michigan.

It isn't that people are mean, but rather she didn't want to invest in relationships that would soon end. Uhm, she's lived there five years and hasn't a single friend; she hasn't even unpacked her clothes out of the boxes she moved FIVE years ago.


I don't mean to rant and bitch about this but this book was just.... Ugh


And I haven't even finished it...The characters are less than one dimesional and to boot the sex is not even that great ... If you are gonna make plotless personality drained characters at least make the sex scenes worth it... Bah

See above... Not even bothering to rate it... Screw that...

2.5 stars Honor Student really had potential but the fact that it was rushed, riddled with grammatical errors, completely unbelievable, and sometimes completely confusing left me no choice but to rate it poorly. Emma was a college student and not a high school student wasn't believable from how she was portrayed. First off Emma is 21, not 17.... I know you're shocked too right?!? From having to "check in" with her aunt and the way the college atmosphere is described (what college professor cares ...more

Now let's be honest here....

I read a lot of books. And every so often you find a book that just stuns you. And not in a good way.

This book feels like it is written by a kid in high school. The author clearly has no idea about how things are in college vs high school. The main character Emma talks about getting high and drunk far too much and generally behaves like a stroppy teenager. Mr Honor seems to be a direct parody of Christian Grey - if I was E L James I would be seriously pissed off with

I read some reviews before reading this book and SO many people compared to to 50 Shades that I figured I had to read it. Because if it was anything like that book I would like it. In my opinion there were similarities between the two books, the main one being that William and Christian are alike. They both are Doms and have a need for control. They both have a bit of a tortured past and they both fall for a girl that they don't want to corrupt, but can't seem to stay away from. But that is wher ...more

As I am a sucker for a rich, bossy Dom... I absolutely loved the story!

Why a 4 then? Well in some things I felt the story a bit too rushed and there is almost an expectation for the reader to fill in the blanks by themselves. Other then that I developed a sub crush on William the Conquerer and Dom crush on Emma.

Can't wait to read their developing love story through William's POV

this was one of the worst books i've ever read. nothing really made sense.
the book had a decent start but then it was just a downhill mess afterwards.
Emma is supposed to be in college but there were bells announcing classes were over. what college did she attend?
Mr. Honor spanks her for being late for class and honestly that was kinda hot but then later when they meet up again he's like what's your safe word? wait what???
the story felt really choppy and before i knew it they were saying i love
After reading this book I found myself thinking that if I had a sexy college professor like William Honor I might have finished college and gotten my degree but my punctuality would have plummeted. :-)

HONOR STUDENT is the first book in the Honor Series and let me just say...On my honor, it's an awesome book. From the moment I started reading I couldn't put it down. On top of the sexual tension between Emma and William and the hot love scenes you have the added drama that someones after them try

3.5 stars actually !!!

I thought about how my life had drastically changed after the last few days. I had been on a downward spiral, but after meeting Mr. Honor I felt like I had a reason to get up in the morning, a reason to show up to class. Here he was feeling as if he had ruined my life, but I felt like he had saved it. He had saved me. I was finally living.

4 1/2 stars! While desperately searching amazon for a new book I stumbled upon this little gem! Some reviews say this book is somewhat Shades of Grey'ish. Which sure there are a few similarities such as the biting of the lip but in all fairness these two books are not one in the same and should be cherished as the unique individuals they are. That being said Honor Student was fantastic! I loved the dynamics between the characters. Innocent but feisty Emma and dominating alpha William who deep do ...more
I didn't know what to expect from this book at first because I didn't read the description of the book....I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. It has a 50 shades feel to it. Similar in the respect of troubled man meets troubled and shy girl. This book was a little rougher for me to read because the male character was a little more mean in the beginning. I still enjoyed this book, there is the love story with a bit of suspense to it. I won't say more there because it would give to much away. ...more

On a boring Friday night I randomly picked a book to read out of my ever-growing to-read list on my eReader. Honor Student just happened to be it. About two hours - and plenty of eye-rolling - later I got to two of the sweetest words in the English language "The End."

My first reaction: the fuck...did I just read? Seriously, what in the fuck did I just read?

This book was very poorly constructed. The characters are not fleshed out enough to get to know who they are and why you should sym

If I could give this book zero stars I would. It was a horrible mix between Sylvain Reynard's Gabriel's Inferno and E.L. James 50 Shades of Grey, hell it is actually not even that close to 50 Shades, it a horribly bastardised version of Gabriel's Inferno. There are no redeeming features. The characters are horrible, you get no back story, the main female character suddenly gets friends after the third chapter for no reason other than later on the book she might need a ride. The male character is ...more

Wow! Great book that I enjoyed reading! It was too short for my liking, but I was intrigued by the characters from the beginning. Emma was disconnected and sad without true sense in her life- her relationship with her aunt was disappointing and lacking. She was instantly drawn to Mr. Honor; however, things got complicated to soon with their attraction. She sensed his darkness, but the attraction was too strong and love followed soon! I liked how she still stood her ground even though she alway

Cover & Title - 5 out of 5

I was unsure whether of not i would like this book from reading the reviews, I was hoping that I would like it & be against the curve of the other reviewer but sadly this is not the case.

Where did the book go wrong for me you ask?
1. The writing style was i think lacking, i wonder if this is one of her first books and she will get better in time. Hopefully this is the case because i have already bought another book by her *grin*
2. I didn't really believe the characters

I should have listened to the negative reviewers. They were all dead on. The story felt way too rushed. The writing felt like something you would find in a diary, as opposed to a novel from one person's perspective. It felt choppy, unclear, and just didn't flow.

I won't touch on the grammatical errors, b/c that ALONE was almost enough for me not to finish the book.

I kept through it, hoping that it will get better toward the end...but I just felt like I wasted my time.

I enjoyed this book, but did struggle at times with some thing that confused honor just seemed mean and hurtful. Towards the end he totally changed for the good and I will enjoy the next book from his pov so I can fill in some of the pieces. As far as Emma...she was pretty freaking trusting of him. His temper would have scared me to death.

I am definitely looking forward to the third book. Anyone know when it's coming out?

While reading this book, I can't help myself to think that it has a lot of resemblance with Gabriel's Inferno (teacher-student relationship) and Fifty shades of Grey . Some parts really made me smile because of the similarity with the scenes in Fifty shades and it made me remember those moments! Though the story was okay, but it didn't work for me and can't say that its good because I think it lacks character development and it didn't stir my emotions. :)

This review doesn't really have spoilers but it does have a few details of things that happen in the story that lead me to give the review below. Nothing is written that will give away the point of the story or any significant details to ruin the story.

This book is a mess. I'm used to reading books with lots of editing and grammatical errors - especially in this genre but there is usually at least a decent building up of the story. This "book" jumped all over the place. One minute Emma is a tota

BLOWN AWAY! I hate seeing this series get compared to 50 Shades because it is so much better. William is a professor who has a wealthy father but they don't get along. He has a very crazy past (as we learn in book two) and he has not changed. At least not yet. He falls for Emma, but is willing to do anything to keep her and to keep his secrets. He is twisted and crazy but somehow this series makes it so incredibly hot. I highly recommend this series. Can't wait for the rest. ...more

I really enjoyed the book, It was Nice, A quick 2 hour read. Was like a fast mixed version Gabriel's Inferno and Fifty Shades Of Grey!
William as described was HOT and Emma well she was a girl.. Totally smittened by his hotness so she doesn't mind getting her behind sore hehe
I really liked the junkie friends she made! haha :P
