I normally don't enjoy Student/Teacher books but this one was different and it definitely hit all the things I enjoy in a book. Of course, I may be prejudiced since I have loved every book I have read by this author. Lana is your typical overachiever who toes the line to always be the perfect student and daughter. Her life is all set or at least what her life is expected to be as dictated by her parents and sister. Enter Jackson Portland who is a writer who has been asked to guest lecture a ...more

Now that's a student teacher romance!

This was my first Linnea May book, and won't be my last. I've bought other books with plans to read them since they had such high ratings, and now I understand why. This was was excellent! One of my favorite taboo story types is student teacher, and stories like this one are why they are.

This story focuses on Lana and Jackson. They meet in class, coming from different backgrounds, but all it takes is a few impudent comments from Lana to start the collision

I have reviewed many of Linnea May's books and this one is another truly well written gem. Her writing is always excellent both with the ways she handles the dark, steamy material and the fully three dimensional characters contained within each story. Lana and Jackson are friends that I truly care about at the conclusion of the story. I want to know so much more and hope that we get further information on them later on. With each book that Ms. May delivers into the hands of her waiting fans, the ...more

Absolutely loved this one...I first thought maybe a bit of a taboo subject and I was a little concerned but author Linnea may told the story in such a way that I/ loved the characters and the plot and did not feel uncomfortable at all.

Jackson Portland self made millionaire shows up as a guest Lecturer at the Ivy League College Lana Harlington attends. They start off on the wrong foot but as the story progresses they find each other and so much more. Both characters are fun, and sexy on

MASTER CLASS is a billionaire romance about a Masters student and her famous billionaire class advisor. The hot instructor Jackson Portland unleashed her passions and encouraged Lana to carve her own future, and not that which was expected of her by her family. This book utterly romantic with some kinky sexy times. But more than that, Master Class was amazing, exciting, and intelligently written. It had some really quotable insights on the essence of success. Overall, a refreshingly delightful ...more

I am still iffy on if I really liked this book or not there were parts that I thought were good and there were parts that I thought were too much. Jackson and Lana start off in an odd dynamic with him being an instructor for a class she needs to graduate Jackson see's her and decides he need to break her, I had a hard time with this the domination and breaking of a person is not really something I enjoy reading about the first half of the book was about him wanting to punish her I skimmed a lot ...more

Thanks to Linnea for the opportunity to read and review for you.

The blurb of this book has me more than a little excited to read it, so when I got the time I jumped in. Sadly I have finished and am feeling a little ripped off. I’m not sure what the problem is/was but it seemed to move slowly but in a good way, then I feel like I missed a portion of the story, then it ran ahead to the ending... so that is my ho hum moment. Taken from both Lana and Jackson

This was just okay.
I mean the writing was fine. Good dialogue. Moderately steamy.
I wasn't a huge fan of the heroine (I just finished the book and I've already forgotten her name) mostly because snotty people make me want to rip my own ears off rather than listen to them speak. Within the first couple pages of chapter one I was already annoyed by her. I did feel a smidge more affable towards her by the end, but just a smidge.
Jackson confused me a bit. I often felt that his internal dialogue made

When I first saw the cover of this book, I liked it so much that I downloaded it without reading the blurb. Even though I liked the promise of the title I wasn't sure what I was going to read. But I was pleasantly surprised with the story and the writing. I really loved it.

Lana is in her final year of graduate school at an Ivy League university, working towards her Master’s in Sociology. In order to graduate, she has to take a class related to her Minor in Economics. The class is being taught by a guest lecturer slash successful billionaire Jackson Portland. Considering he’s not actually a professor, Lana finds him to be sorely lacking in his skills as a teacher and isn’t afraid to let him know it. Too bad her defiance only turns him on.

Linnea has penned such a wonderful storyline in Master Class that I had to read it right through and I was lucky enough not to be stopped!

Lecturing His Submissive

Lana is a dedicated college student, but she is studying to be what her parents want her to be. She is a good student but her spirit is somewhat broken. She gets lost in the details, because she can't overcome the big thing, which is her parents.
Along comes wealthy entrepreneur Jackson Portland to guest teach Applied Economics, the last class Lana needs to graduate. The campus is a buzz with the news because Jackson is not only a self made Billionaire, he's extremely buff

So funny story. I'm constantly on forums and everytime I see a 'what are you reading' there's usually like 30 people who are reading ARCs. So here I am..an avid reader wondering how in the world I get my hands on one of these? And as if fate heard me, I got an email advertising ARCs for this book.

I didn't know what the book was about. I just signed myself up for it because no matter what I would give an honest review.

So what should you know about this book? Student/Mentor. Dominance themed.

This book contained some situations that were very triggering to me. It pushed me to places I don't willingly go but it was done with such skill that I went there almost without realizing I had. And I can't fault the book for my own baggage. It was very easy for me to connect with the geeky social misfit that Lana is most of the time. It took a lot more effort for me to warm up to Jackson, especially after discovering why Lana is exactly the type of woman he likes best. I also wasn't a fan of ...more

I voluntarily read an arc of this book for a fair and honest review.

Jackson has been asked to teach a course at the local university. He doesn't seem himself as a scholar so some of the rules that are expected of an instructor bother him and he doesn't feel he needs to follow. Lana is a student in his class and she is one of those goody two shoes who at the beginning starts off looking down at Jackson because he isn't a scholar.

There was many things I liked about this book but there were also

“Master Class” was a thoroughly engaging read that captured my attention from the prologue to the very last page. Linnea May has a talent for writing good books with plenty of chemistry between protagonist. I’ve read most (if not all) of her work at this point and always find myself totally entertained while waiting to see which direction the novel will take me. Why not five stars then? I had difficulty warming up to the male lead… I found him more arrogant than confident and for much of the ...more

His Good Girl

I loved this book from the first page!!! Jackson Portland is a self made billionaire that rose up from a broken home, poverty and bullying. Teaching is not his thing, but when asked to teach a semester at an ivy league school he accepts thinking if he can help one person it'll be a win. What he didn't expect is Lana Harrington, a good girl to question him on his way of teaching. Lana needs this credit to graduate so she can follow in her parents footsteps and become a professor. She

Jackson Portland is a self made billionaire. His father abandoned his family and his mother was an alcoholic. To top it off, Jackson was overweight, poor, and a terrible student. The only thing he was good at, is math. That passion for mathematics, a mentor, and his struggles made him the man he is.
Lana Harlingtion comes from a family of scholars, her parents and her sister. It is expected of her to go to graduate from an Ivy League school with a doctorate. Anything else would be below

Lana Harlington is a good girl. She is following her parents and sister into academia. But with Jackson Portland as a guest lecturer for a term, the definition of “good girl” will change. Lana challenges Jackson as much as he challenges her, academically, sexually, and in terms of her passion. There is a slight teacher-student taboo aspect and some mild BDSM. Jackson's dominance is clearly established and he has singled out Lana for punishment on day one. There is some tension knowing that ...more

Lana is the college student who thinks she knows it all. She has life all figured out, even if it's not the life she wants for herself. Jackson is the self made billionaire, who had a horrible childhood, but refused to let the cruelty of others dictate his life. Instead, he used those feelings to become the man he is today.

Lana’s life plans weren’t hers, but she had one class left and her plans would be on track. Some rich billionaire was teaching her class and as a stuffy academic, she couldn’t believe that a man without a college degree would be teaching her masters class. On her first day of class, she let her disdain be known, but he didn’t let it go and embarrassed her.
This was how their relationship started, but soon things were getting hot and steamy. However, Jackson was
