One tall, dark, and broody professor + One overachieving college student = Chemistry they can’t erase.

When I was asked to babysit for a single father, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Two months with Mr. tall, dark, and broody didn’t seem like a bad trade-off for the money he would pay me.

As the weeks go by, our attraction grows and I realize what a concerne

depravity jacob chance

Depravity is book one in the King University series by Jacob Chance. I FINALLY read my very first Jacob Chance book and I ended up loving it! I chose this series to start with because I love the genres involved. This one is professor/student, age gap and forbidden romance. This can be read as a complete stand alone.

sexy male professor

Professor Miles Decker spent ten years with his wife. Until she left him for his best friend, and signed over complete custody to him of their nearly three year old son, Joey. She wa

That single, and not at all sufficient, word was on repeat in my mind as I read this book. Truthfully, forbidden romance isn't typically my thing. But this book is most definitely MY THING!! I LOVED it!! It’s impossible for Jacob Chance not to give his all while writing a book. Jacob’s writing just keeps getting better with each book he puts out and Depravity takes the cake. So much different and unique to what we have come to expect from him but in the best possible way. It b

It was an ok read. Single dad and the babysitter. Then it turns to professor/student. It wasn’t bad, but there wasn’t enough tension for me. As long as it was it needed the tension and I just didn’t feel it.

Jacob Chance’s stories always wow me, always amaze me, always put a smile on my face at the end but in Depravity... he took all those thing to a whole new level and it was writing perfection. As soon as I started reading I was captivated and needed more. It’s pure sexual tension and taboo at its finest.

You meet Sophie and Miles. Miles is a single dad raising his nearly three yr old son, Joey.

Forbidden romance GOLD! It was the trifecta of taboo! A must read for all forbidden romance lovers! But also for anyone who just loves a great romance. I LOVED IT!!! My absolute favorite book by this author. It was EVERYTHING you want from a taboo romance and more. He created characters that you can’t help but fall in love with and wish for their HEA!

Miles was a single dad to his adorable son Joey, left bitter by an ugly split from his ex. He’s a wonderful father to h

Depravity by Jacob Chance is a slow burn romance that had my heart swooning every step of the way! I wholeheartedly adored the back and forth banter between Miles, a single dad and college professor, and Sophie, a part-time babysitter and soon-to-be college freshmen. What starts off as a hot summer fling soon blossoms into so much more. There is just one little problem...neither one of them expected him to be her professor.

Their story gave me all

Wowsers, where do I even begin? Jacob Chance has brought the heat and all feels with this one. Depravity is filled with banter, sexual tension and humor. Miles and Sophie sizzle together and I kinda miss them a little bit already.
My jaw dropped in the prologue with Miles' ex Sandy, it's been a while since I've wanted to hurt a fictional character, and she had me raging.
All in all, I loved this story and I look forward to the next installment.

Wow! Jacob has really done it with another great book. I enjoy reading forbidden romances especially when they're like this one. Miles and Sophie's story was really beautiful. Lots of steamy stuff along with the well meaning things too.

First off I want to say I loved Depravity and Jacob Chance still reigns as the King of Sexual Tension. He is bringing the taboo side out to play, babysitter and student/teacher! This book feels more mature and evenly paced. I think it's his best yet, each new book I see so much more growth from this author.

Miles and Sophie's story is one of not being able to help who you fall in love with. Age is just a number and shouldn't matter when it comes to love, even if it's frowned upon. The heart wants

What a story! Miles, Sophie and Joey are characters that instantly come to life within the first few chapters. We’re witness to the building romance of age gap and a single father romance that is a non stop page turner. Sophie knows what she wants and has her goals in view, Miles has his focus on one particular person only, Joey. Seeing the kind of father this man is will have you falling for him instantly. Events that take place have you gasping and have you nipping at the bit to see what happe ...more

noun: depravity; plural noun: depravities
1. moral corruption; wickedness.

This book’s title couldn’t be more perfect! It is jam packed with so much heat you’ll need a cold shower and extra panties! Depravity is a bit different than what Jacob typically releases. I love that he went more risqué but not over the top and kept true to the Jacob Chance writing we are used to! Humor, awesome banter, a touch of angst, and did I mention steamy scenes between a hot dad/professor and the babysitter/student

This author is new to me! My first read but definitely not the last!

This is a forbidden romance between an older man and younger student! One of my favorite tropes! It was amazingly written and the plot had me wanting more.

Slow built romance between the two.

Sophie is a young college student and Miles is an older single father and college professor.

I absolutely love this story! The chemistry between the two was hot and filled with sexual tension.

OMFG. This book!!!!!
You know, I read a lot of books. Dark books. Twisted books. Pitch black even. Torture and emotional turmoils that leave the empathetic reader that I am, completely drained at the end. Yet, Im an addict because feeling intensely is exactly what I chase when I read a book, since it’s the only way I really have a chance to feel anything now. Which is probably why rom-com or sweet romances are not my to go to anymore, because I’ve read so many books that brought me to the edge,

I have read every book Jacob has written and each new read gets better and better, he definitely knows how to write the sexy, but this one is forbidden in every sense of the word. I know we always want what we can't have, but can we handle it once we get it. Sophie and Miles are a great look at what forbidden can be, they are sexy, cautious and wild. Joey is too cute for his own good and Miles is a great father, trying to juggle his career as a college professor, while being a single dad. Sophie ...more

Jacob took 2 tropes and wrote a beautiful story. This book is different from his other books, but the heat, and camaraderie between the characters that works so well in all of his books were still there. You will swoon, LOL, feel the heat, and shed some tears throughout this book. It is absolutely his best writing to date. I definitely have to applaud Jacob for the way he wrote Joey's character (Miles' son). It was ON POINT. His dialogue fit his age throughout the book, and that doesn't always h ...more

Holy hotness! This book is one of my favorite student/teacher romances I’ve ever read! I had to force myself to put it down so I could get some kind of sleep last night!! Jacob Chance shows a different side to his writing ability and I am just in awe. I absolutely loved Depravity.

Depravity is not your typical student/teacher romance.. at least, I don’t think it is. Sophie and Miles relationship starts out as just a summer fling. Sophie is hired to be Miles son, Joey, babysitter. But when their a

Forbidden romances are my favorite trope and this teacher/student story has definitely been added to my list of favorites! Miles and Sophie's story was extremely delicious and yet touching and heart warming at times as well. Sophie is extremely mature for her age and it was so refreshing to see her handle a relationship with an older man, at times better than said older man! One thing that I haven't read much of in this particular trope is the single father twist which made for some of the sweet ...more

This was a bit of a “Meh” read for me. I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate it either!

I really enjoyed this slowburn, single dad read. Miles is a jaded single dad focused on his son. Sophie is the college student needing extra cash. Her part time job turns into a seriously hot summer fling & then so much more.

I loved their banter and the slowburn feel of the book. I really enjoyed the supporting characters in the story & was guessing which ones we were introduced to would be making an appearance in the other books. Great read!

I received an ARC of this book.

Forbidden Romance? Yes, PLEASE!!

What a way to start off a series!!! Professor and the Nanny, the R rated version. I love a good taboo romance, and what's more taboo than an age-gap, student/teacher, Single father/nanny book. However this wasn't a good book, it was FANFREAKINGTASTIC!! I mean this book was giving me L.I.F.E. I loved Miles and Sophie, and little Joey. It was a little angsty in parts, and I was screaming "just go with the flow" at certain characters. But what's an epic love story wi

The only thing I can think to compare this book to is going on the tower of terror amusement ride without actually knowing you’re on it. The book will start off slowly progressing upward getting better and better until it reaches the highest point of happiness. Then before you can even blink it’s going to drop you so hard it will feel like your heart is falling out of your chest. And right before you reach what seems like the bottom you will be prop

This sizzling forbidden romance is a pure delight.

Professor Pupil? Age gap? Single Father? Epic dirty talk... all wrapped in a sizzling slow burn? Depravity is a gift from the romance gods. Starting with that smexy cover.

Chance’s best yet! Sooooooo good! Sophie is a phenomenal little minx, and Miles. Jesus H Christo! The man is FlockHot, sure. But the way his mind works—his lewd delicious thoughts, paired with his devotion and rejection of his own feelings—his journey felt very real to me. Giv

Before we start, let’s talk about the cover. A suited guy is always appreciated especially when the shirt is open. I confess it was hard not to stare.


But I digress. Let’s get onto the story. The reader is thrown into the fray and dropped into Miles’ life. And it’s not the most pleasant of moments. It does however explain how he can be a bit of a jerk when we see him interact with Sophie later on. You can’t blame him for his guarded attitude. He is slightly jaded after being wronged by a woman an

Miles and Sophie ... Jacob Chance brilliance

Depravity (noun)
... the state of being morally bad
... corruption, perversion, shamelessness, lasciviousness

Jacob Chance has finally allowed his brilliant talent to shine. Don't get me wrong, I have enjoyed everything that Jacob has written so far, but with DEPRAVITY he just seems to climb further up the ladder. This story is full of so many emotions and two wonderful characters, that I simply couldn't put it down.

I'll be honest and say I was a little apprehensive about reading a romance novel written by a man. I've never read one but this book was one of the best romances I've read this year! I loved it so much and I actually liked Miles and Sophie through the entire book.
