5 Stars – Naughty, sexy, fun.

“Your body was made for me. Every inch of it is perfect.”

Taught is the brand new naughty novella from Jenna Tyler.

Marissa Mitchell is a first grade teacher who’s very much single and still looking for her Mr. Right, or even just a Mr. Right Now, she’s not discriminating. Brady James may be both but Marissa is hoping for door number one after only one encounter and it was a brief one at that. Problem being, he’s the father of one of her students…

Marissa is a first grade teacher who meets Brady, the father of one of her students, during a classroom event at the start of the school year. She is physically attracted to Brady from the start, and finds an invitation to meet him for a drink shortly after their first meeting. Marissa accepts the invitation and they confirm that they are indeed quite sexually compatible.

I feel like there was some potential here, but even for a novella, this was quite short. I feel like what we did get here was

Quick, Fun, & Sexy
This was a very quick beginning to a new series and I enjoyed every minute of it. In this book we get a setup of things sure to come and will leave you dying for the next book in the series. What happens when school teacher Marissa meets very wealthy Brady, the father of one of her students and sparks begin to fly? And what happens when Marissa finds out Brady's secret? Can she handle it? Will she want to? I definitely recommend this extremely hot read. I was given a compliment

*****5 stars*****

Wow, that was short, Wham, Bam and Hot.

If you want a quick read then this one is for you. Marissa is a new teacher,
first day of class she meets Brady, father to one of her students.

After inviting her out for drinks, she can't say no when he asks her back to
his place.

Marissa came across as fun loving and says what's on her mind. Brady is the
handsome Billionaire that is into a bit of kink.

Great quick read

Sometimes, you just need a breather. You need something fun. You need something sexy. You need…just something. Taught was my “something”. While I love angst and tension just as much as I love a good ole’ fashioned romance novel, there’s absolutely something to be said for a quick little romp, and that’s what Taught gave me.

First, let me say that I don’t read serials. Like ever. As in, this is my first one. I’ve never trusted myself to enjoy serials, because even novellas sort of drive me crazy

3.5-4 Stars.
Despite this being so short, it was really good! I like the direction this book is heading towards and if you want something fun and kinky to read, then grab this one! The fact that Marissa is a teacher and she is willing to go out into Brady’s lifestyle makes the book much more interesting. I'm looking forward to reading more of this series!

I was really excited to read Taught because I love forbidden romances and I really enjoyed it! It's a very fast, easy read with plenty of heat, a little sass, and a touch of warm gooeyness. There is still more that needs to be told and discovered about this hero and heroine, but I was satisfied with the ending and I'm eager to read whatever is coming next!

This was quick sexy read that left wanting more. I need to know more about Brady & Marissa. It felt lacking of a backstory so hopefully the next installment gives more.

I always enjoy a breather from all the series, full-length, angst-filled books I read and when I read Taught's blurb, I was intrigued and thought this book would be it for me. It was and then it wasn't. The first page or two was enough to get my attention, by the next page I'm feeling a sense of deja vu from where the story is heading and what's going to happen.

Quick reads, novellas especially, with a good am

TITLE: Taught
AUTHOR: Jenna Tyler

A super short book with insta attraction/love that was reminiscent of FSOG when she was introduced to his lifestyle.

The synopsis, cover and title had me from the start and I couldn't waited start the journey of a young teacher that meets and is attracted to one of her students father.
Sad to say, that's about where it left me. This book literally took me 20 mins to read.

I'm sure if there would've been more to the story than just this small bit I may h

This is the first book i've read from this author and I'm really excited to read more.

Taught is book one in this series it's a very short quick read with tons of steam and hot sex.

Marisa Mitchell is a first grade teacher and on the first day of classes she meets one of her students dad Brady James and suddenly the rules of not lusting or dating students parents goes flying out the window.

Brady Janes is Hot and just enough of his tattoos peek out from his suit that leaves Melissa no choice when

For me, this story was nothing like I imagined it to be. I thought it was going to be a sweet and cute story. It was the opposite. Not as much as a cute teacher and parent love story, as a lesson in sex ed with a Dom...

Smexy hot but way too short. It is only 40 pages so not really enough to really get the story going. I hope the next one is long enough to really hook my attention!

I was born and raised in South/Central Florida. Currently residing in Texas, I love spending time with my fur-baby, Roxy… and sometimes my kids (when they behave). I enjoyed writing poems as a teenager, but it was short-lived. I didn’t become an avid reader until… Twilight and became obsessed. My passion for reading led to stories and characters nagging at me. Then a friend suggested I write it ou ...more
