From the moment the man walked into the bar, I knew he was still in the closet. But that didn’t stop us from sharing an incredible night together.

Our easy, one-night hookup went from no-strings-attached to a tangled mess on the first day of the semester, when I locked eyes with the mystery man from the bar... who also happens to be my new Art History professor.

Change of Course is book three in the Change of Hearts series by Sierra Hill. This was my very first book by Sierra and I loved it. This can definitely be read as a stand alone as I have not read any of the books in this series and had no trouble at all. This is a M/M forbidden love/student-professor romance.

Kyler Scott is a twenty two year old college art student. Kyler is not only a full time student, he is working two jobs to pay his rent and tuition. He works as a bartender i

Another fantastic book in this series by Sierra Hill! I loved Lucas and Kyler! The tension between them was FIRE! I love a good student/teacher story because I love the aspect of them having to hide their feelings. Trying to keep away from each other. Not wanting others to discover the feelings they have either. It keeps me on pins and needles the whole time! Lucas was not "out", so when he decided that he needed to come out to his bestfriend (since college) I was feeling the nerves right along ...more

Though it wasn’t as good as I expected, I didn’t feel cheated. It was an interesting read with some great elements.

The spectrum of gay characters was one of them. There wasn’t a unique depiction of homosexuality, each character was different. As often, the acceptance level was high, but not overly so–there were characters who struggled a bit with the relationship, though not for long. I’d have liked to see Lucas’s closeted experience used more.

There was heat here, but a lot of it was written pos

Change Of Course is an M/M book as well as a professor/student romance. As someone who likes both, I jumped at the chance to read this standalone story. The storyline is sweet and somewhat unique, with limited angst. I read it in one sitting!

Kyler is outgoing, confident, and talented. He is very comfortable in his own skin and with being openly gay. For me, he was very easy to like. Lucas is quiet, intelligent, and refined. He’s also closeted, which makes any long term relationship challenging.

Change of Course • Change of Hearts series - Book 3
*ARC Review*

Change of Course is a MM romance about a college professor, Lucas, and his student, Kyler. They met each other at a bar, had a hot night together, & never saw each other again...until their first day of class. They are faced with the challenge of ignoring their connection because of their student/teacher relationship and because Lucas has not revealed his sexual preferences to any of his friends or family.

Change of Course is the third book in the Change of Hearts series from Sierra Hill.......and she saved the absolute best for last! This M/M / age-gap / student-teacher romance was fantastic!! I absolutely loved Kyler and Lucas!

They were complete opposites - Kyler, a student, free-spirited, out and proud; Lucas, a professor who is still hiding his sexuality from everyone, except for during his random hookups. And when these two hooked up, they didn't realize Lucas would end up being Kyler's art p

This is an MM, forbidden age gap romance... it doesn’t get better than that for me! All the genres/tropes I adore!
Lucas is a closeted professor who’s a bit gruff, but he has a lot of heart and intelligence.
Kyler is a 22 year old art student, he’s sassy, fun, talented and quite sweet.
Together they are really hot and sexy!
They fight their attraction and there is a bit of angst and push/pull.
The story is fun, sexy and beautiful. In between the laughs and steam there are

Change of Course is the third book in Sierra Hill’s Change of Hearts series, and I’ve been excited about this one since the start of the series. I think the fact I was so excited about this one is the reason I wasn’t as in love with it as I had hoped to be. That is not to say I did not enjoy it – as I did – I simply expected a wee bit more from it.

Change of Course is a story that easily sucks you in, one that has you happy to devour it in a single sitting. Once I started, I could not wait to see

Change of Course by Sierra Hill a five-star read that will change your course. This was amazing, its number three in the Change of Hearts series, but they each run along side each other so you can read them as stand-alone, but I have honestly adored the series, it felt like catching up with friends I haven’t seen for ages. This is M/M so it won’t be everyone’s taste (even though who cares its hot and I’m not going to judge anyone’s choices but surely more love is a better thing). Lucas has alway ...more

Ahh!! Lucas and Kylers story is finally on its way and damn it’s great! Your pulled in from page one and the back and forth between these two will have to giggling. The relationship blossoms and of course has some hiccups from things not being told out loud but in the end love comes out on top! I have absolutely loved this series and I absolutely love kylers qwerky outfits and the fact he pushes Lucas out of his comfort zone.

"A Sexy, Exciting, Addicting Love Story"      

A scintillating, sexy, emotional story about a closeted, slightly stringent professor and a highly-talented, outgoing sweet student artist, both of which have similar yet very different kinds of emotional baggage.  With the dips and dabs of a daddy/boy kink, meddling family member(s) and moments when I could not cheer loud enough, I loved this story.  The stunning interconnectedness between multiple forms of Art to that of Love and Life, within th

Kyler and Lucas may be mentally in two different thoughts but this forbidden thing they going on is too hot. I love how it has that sweetness of the forbidden fruit, the se*iness of two men who may have wore down my readers' battery with the heat and then the loud bang of them realizing that age is a number and forever don't care about that. I received an ARC for an honest and voluntarily review. ...more

This was a M/M age gap romance and I was intrigued from the beginning.  It was pleasantly good with intense chemistry and sexy intimacy. These two were complete opposites but had this special connection that could be undenied. These two deserved every bit of their HEA.

A very emotional and beautiful read! Sierra is definitely a one click for me for M/M romance!

Kyler and Lucas’s story is a push and pull between doing what’s expected and lust! From their first interaction you could sense the longing and it’s that desire that changed the course of both their lives!

I loved Kylers quick wit and no nonsense attitude! He was amazing and I couldn’t picture a better partner for him than Lucas!

This read was hot! Lots of sexual tension and sizzle, and lots of NSFW shenanigans.

It’s an M/M, professor-student, slight age-gap (it’s actually only a 7 year gap, but it appears bigger due to the guys’ different circumstances) romance with just a tiny bit of daddy-kink thrown in. And it was simply delicious . I usually cringe from reading the word daddy in a sexual context, but somehow it really worked here.

I fell for Kyler right away. He’s a bit disillusioned, but so very likable. A little

This is the last book in this series and I have to say that I think Sierra Hill did a great job, I thought that her writing had improved as the series developed. I do think she’s grown as a writer and I love how this book was inspiring as I know that people in real life do struggle with who they are and how they portray themselves to society but Sierra really did nail this one. I’m hoping that it’ll help people and it will show them that it’s okay to be themselves no matter what anyone else thin ...more

So I admit this isn't my usual type of books I read but I did enjoy it being set in my hometown.
Lucas is a college professor who lives by the rules, is uptight, loves art, has a domineering Grandmother and hides the fact he is gay. Kyler is his student, a free soul, funny and owns who he is.
Kyler turns Lucas' world upside down and makes him take a hard look at himself. There's so much chemistry between them but can Lucas let go? Kyler certainly doesn't want to be his dirty little secret and be

I thought that this was a wonderful book. I loved Kyler and Lucas. These two do not have an easy road but they can't deny their feelings, let alone the pull that they have for each other. These two are opposites but they are perfect for each other. This book pulled me in and wouldn't let me go. I actually tried to read to book really slow because I didn't want it to end but it had a grip on me that wouldn't let me; I just had to see what happened next these two!

This was a beautifully written, heartfelt story by Sierra Hill. So raw and emotional, Sierra writes with such believability, it actually made me feel like I was in the story, and Lucas and Kyler were friends of mine. Very realistic, I just couldn't put it down. I was so happy when they got their happily ever after. Definitely recommended!

Gah! I absolutely loved Lucas and Kyler's story. This book is MM and age gap. Between those 2 genres coming together, there is that forbidden edge that makes it even more enticing. Lucas is in the closet and Kyler is definitely not. These two together, help the other one, through areas of their life they struggle with. I fell in love with their love story and the way they overcome obstacles together. I am bummed this series is coming to an end but loved every minute of it. A must read! Thank you ...more
