While I prefer OMYW, this is a nice flip of that. In her early 40s, Hollis is rediscovering life after her doomed marriage. A young and accomplished poet, Rowan quickly sets his sights on her when she shows up for his class. Things get a little hot but mostly it's a sweet story about a shy woman coming into her own with a man that likes / loves her just as she is. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. ...more

Hollis Watson had always longed for family and a love she could depend on. But instead, she got something else, a letter from the attorney of an aunt she didn’t know she had saying that she’d died and left her estate to Hollis, her nearest relative. After verifying this was true, she immediately got rid of her disgusting, cheating ex-husband who had always told her she was too old, too ugly, too fat, and was lucky to have him. Getting her freedom felt so good, and she enrolled in a nighttime col ...more

This was a beautiful written story, I loved how Hollis's character was able to grow and develop into a women her kids could be proud of. Rowan's character was a able to find someone and the love

Hollis is ready to grow into the idea of taking on the world. After divorcing her habitual cheating husband she is in the brink of something extraordinary. Only if she gets the nerve to sign up for the class. Hollis is a character that is in her earl forties and needs to grow in order to make it happen instead of having her crappy ex-husband’s words swirl in her head. This poetry class is the beginning. She meets a fellow student only to have him as the teacher. Yow-za. Rowan is a renowned poet ...more

I loved this book! The way that Poppy drew me in with Hollis’ back story and how she was able to change her life for the better kept me turning the pages. Her friend was awesome and supportive and gave Hollis the nudge she needed to finally follow her dream. Rowan was kind and understanding and not deterred by the age gap between himself and Hollis. He was determined to get what he wanted by proving to Hollis ‘she was the one’. Enjoyed the epilogue and loved the fact that Hollis finally got her ...more

I volunteered to read this ARC for an honest review. I enjoyed this quick story about Rowan and Hollis. She's a divorcee heading back to take a poetry class now that she's taken care of. Rowan is a poet and wishes he could find true love, not having woman throw themselves at him because is good work. When she runs into him in the first day, they both feel sparks. But since she's older she's afraid he won't feel the same. Great HEA.

Hollis has recently gotten a divorce, got an inheritance, and started taking a poetry class at the local college. Rowan has written a poetry book about love and teaches poetry at the local college. Hollis runs into Rowan leaving the college class because the women were wearing very little clothes. As the semester goes on, Rowan's feelings for Hollis get deeper. This is a sweet older woman, younger man story. The romance builds over time.

Hollis and Rowan will literally burn up your kindle with their hotness! He's a professor of poetry, she's his student. They didn't anticipate falling for each other, she's recently divorced and much older, but Rowan finds something in Hollis that he longs for. In the end, you get a happily ever after that will make you smile and trust that you should never stop dreaming for your happily ever after.

This was my first read by this author, but it won't be my last! Great addition to the Adult Educati

What do you do when you get a gift from fate? Do you take it and run or do you continue as you've always been?
Hollis is starting her life over and set about learning new things. Rowan is getting ready for another semester teaching students who don't really want to learn.
These characters are written beautifully. After being in a rut, the question becomes will Hollis take a chance on herself?

This is a fast pace and well written steamy older woman younger man taboo romance. The story-line is engaging, consistent, and moves at a brisk pace with drama, amazing friends, humour, and steam. The characters are likeable, the attraction is instant, and the chemistry is intense and off the charts. A very enjoyable read!

The Adult Education Series certainly packs the heat and this novella brings it up a notch. Rowan runs into Hollis and immediately is enamored and wants her. In turn, Hollis never expects to become teacher’s pet. Of course their attraction is unacceptable and it becomes a will they or won’t they. Something was missing for me from this story and it didn’t feel all together. It was still enjoyable and I’m sure others will love it.

Short, Instalove Romance at its Finest. Rowan fell hard and fast for Hollis. Rowan was a professor and Hollis was his student. Their relationship was forbidden and then there was the issue of their ages. Hollis is 14 years older than Rowan. To find out what happened you will need to read Teacher’s Pet for yourself. The sex scene was steamy AF. Highly recommend. Hope you enjoy it as much as a I have.

4.5 stars this is a great story, it’s romantic, heartwarming and enjoyable. Rowan is a poetry teacher Hollis his student. What nice is this is the story of a slightly older heroine to hero book. Poppy has a way with words that keep you captivated till the end, I couldn’t put it down.

Holly is starting over after receiving an inheritance and divorcing her cheating ex-husband. Rowan is a poetry professor that's tired of students who don't care about the subject and only want him as a price.
It's a short read and maybe it's my mood but it wasn't that good.

I like when someone is going through something difficult and they come out on the other side and much better than before. Hollis decides to go for her dreams, and not only chases them, but finds a younger man in the process. I love that Rowan falls for Hollis, warts - to her - and all. This was short, sexy, sweet and has a great HEA.

Hollis decided now that she's divorced and finally got her freedom back to enroll in a poetry class. Rowan is the twenty eight year old instructor and Hollis is a forty year old woman who he falls for. This is a fantastic story and I loved that Hollis is older than Rowan and that age didn't matter to him. The writing is great and the ending is perfect.

Amazing! Loved Hollis and Rowan’s story. I’m a big fan of the woman being a bit older. The writing was heartfelt. The emotions conveyed were spot on. This is likely a story I will read multiple times. Highly recommend!!
