Cute professor/student love story!

I enjoyed this Insta-Love romance about a professor that had been burned by a scorned student in the past and a new student returning to college years after quitting to raise a child when her boyfriend tragically died. The dialogue seemed a bit stilted at first, or possibly it just took me a while to get into the story. But after a bit I really liked the characters of Professor Shane Warden and Amber Davis and the story flowed much better.

The story begins with

I have a ton of Carly Phillips' books on my TBR shelf but this is the first one I have read....whats taken me so long?!?!? I have no idea, but I have said this time and time again THANK YOU to 1,001 Dark Nights for bringing us these novellas. Books like this one gives the authors a chance to bring readers characters they normally wouldn't have written a story for and it gives readers a chance to enter the series without having to start from the beginning.

Nadine's Obsessed with Books Where
Pretty romance with good feelings, a good man, and family warmth all over.

I enjoyed the maturity of themes throughout this novella. It actually ties to a trilogy of stories around a club that I also liked a lot, the Sexy Series. In this case, the female character is a single mum with a sad past but full of plans for the future. I admire her ambition to study in order to provide a better life for her young son. Thats how she meets a handsome man with whom she has great chemistry. However, he

I loved reading about Levis girlfriend and her son ten years after Levi died in college. I was glad to see that Amber let Levis twin brother and other two friends help her move, get a house, and start back in college. I know it was hard for Amber to see her son leave for a few weeks to be with Levis parents. It was nice that she will have time to ease back into school without her son there. I loved how she met Shane, but was sad to see that he ended up being her professor. Especially since Shane ...more

I really enjoy these 1001 Dark Nights books because they give us another story in the world that the author has created but they aren't always necessary to the storyline. Amber's story wasn't totally necessary to the Sexy series but I'm really glad we got it. It was a cute professor/student story but the fact that Amber as a character accepted that she was different than the other students in her class was really great. The story also moved along quickly with not every day or even week being ...more

I enjoyed the perfectly sweet ball of fluffy goodness that was this novella. A sweet way to cap off a sexy series!

Amber Davis has had some unexpected things happen, that altered her life from what she thought it might be. When she was 20, her college boyfriend Levi died after a terrible hazing incident, and she found that she was pregnant shortly after. She dropped out of college and went home to her parents, and they've helped her for the last 10 years. Her son LJ is a great kid, and she wants

Sexy Love is a novella in the Sexy Series by Carly Phillips. It can be read as a complete standalone and I can say that since thats exactly how I read it.

Amber is a single mom looking for a fresh start. Moving to Connecticut and going back to college was not going to be easy but she was determined to make her and her sons life better. What she didnt expect was to run into, literally a man who made her weak in the knees with one look. Finding love or even lust was way off her radar until him.

Here we are at book four of the Sexy series, but if you thought Carly Phillips miscounted because there were only three owners of the club that made up Club TEN29, well....there were originally four best friends and that included Levi Bennett, whom their club is dedicated after. So, if you wondered what happened to Levi's baby mama, Amber, Sexy Love is a sweet and steamy novella that will help fill in the answers to those questions.

Sexy Love is a novella in the Sexy series and while it is part of a series, it can definitely be read as a standlone.

Amber Davis is looking for a fresh start. She's a single mom who has been living in Florida close to her own family, but she decides to move north to be closer to her son LJ's paternal grandparents, uncle and two pseudo uncles. LJ's Dad, Levi, died in a hazing accident in college leaving Amber to

As I havent read the three previous books to this series, I came in not knowing anything about Amber and Lj, her ten-year-old son. I immediately felt a connection to Ambers character, having been a single mother before and trying to better my education to better our life. She comes across as a strong, resilient woman willing to make sacrifices for her son to have more family close to him.
Shane appeals to me as a smart, sexy, sensitive hero whos been burned by life but hasnt let it get him down.

I've loved every story surrounding Club TEN29 and this one is absolutely perfect.

Ten years ago while she was grieving for Levi, Amber Davis found out she was pregnant. She made the decision to leave college and raise her son. Levi's twin Landon, his parents and her own have been very supportive of them. The men who were there when Levi died in a hazing incident opened Club Ten29 in his honor and have decided Amber should have her dreams as well.

Landon, Tanner and Jason have finally convinced

What another great story by Carly Phillips. This novella was perfect for this series. I loved Amber and Shanes story.

This story had a little bit of everything I like in a book. Its a forbidden romance between a teacher and his student but it was also a single parent story which I always gravitate towards.

Even though this is a novella it lacked for nothing. Carly was able to invoke all the same feelings I get when reading one of her

Even though this is a novella, i was moved by the emotions contained within. Being the 4th story in the series, the characters jave been somewhat established, at least the heroine and her family. Amber isnt a wodow but she fits the description. Her son, LJ's father had a college hazing gone so wrong it affected all their lives forever. She didnt even know she was pregnant until after Levi had passed away. Her life as a single mom wasnt easy but her parents and now Levi's parents are helping to ...more

I love 1001 Dark Nights books. They are quick little reads that give me the escape I need after a long day at work. I was happy to read this one. First because I am a huge Carly Phillips fan.

After Ambers college boyfriend tragically dies in a college hazing incident, she finds herself pregnant with his baby. She was fortunate enough to have a strong support system. Not only from her parents but from her boyfriends best friends, twin and parents. She loves being a mom but she always wanted to go

I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

Professor Shane loves his job. He enjoys watching his students learn the material and really understand it. While he knows that sometimes people will take advantage - as he has first hand experience, he wants to believe that most people are good.

Amber loves her life, but she wants something more. After leaving college when she found out she was pregnant and that the love of her life

For fans of the Sexy Series this is a must read.

Fast forward 10 years and her dream of college is coming true with the help of her son's grandparents and uncles. 

She's moved to a new state and is about to start her studies.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
SEXY LOVE by Carly Phillips is book 4 in the Sexy Series. This is the story of Amber Davis and Shane Warden. I have read the previous books but feel this can easily be a standalone book.
Amber is starting a portion of her life again. After having to leave collage due to the death of her boyfriend and finding out that she was pregnant. Now about 10 years later she is moving on with her life which is leaving her parents house, moving into a college town along with going back to college.

I loved that we got this story! Amber is the mother of Levi's son (which is the connection to the Ten29 guys) and she's been a single mom for a long time. When she moves to New York to attend college, she meets a guy and sparks fly - but of course things can't be easy - he's her professor. Despite the fact that Shane has been burned by accusations of improper relations with a student before, the chemistry between these two won't go away.

Sexy Love is a novella in the Sexy series by Carly Phillips. It's stand-alone and if you have read any of the other books in the series you will know Amber from there. She is the mother of Levi's child and we have seen her around. I was happy to see that she would get a story and ever happier to read it.

I really liked this story. When I think of Shane and Amber's relationship the first word that pops into my mind is natural. These two were simply great together and everything felt like it
Loved this fun and flirty insta-love romance between Amber and Shane as it was fun and flirty and "oh", so cute.I loved the characters they were amazing and a whole lot of fun.I loved how Amber and LJ had such a large support system and although they suffered a horrible loss they made a incredible family forged through amazing friendships and a whole lot of love.

Shane's and Amber connection was immediate and their chemistry amazing but, obstacle's are in their way but, I loved how they worked

This is a short novella, but don't let that fool you! This book is packed full of emotion. Beautiful characters, written just perfectly to make you fall in love with them all. Loved that Amber gets a book of her very own, she certainly deserved it, even if it wasn't all plain sailing.

As a writer Carly Phillips engages her audience and makes you feel as though you are part of the story. She has a way of pulling emotions from the reader and has you routing for the couple.
