ok - reader beware this is STRAIGHT UP PORN Y'ALL. If you are looking for a little story and a LOT of LEMON here it is. Before Bella, if Edward Masen from UOEM was into BDSM and he had 4 buddies he liked to play with - this story would be him teaching Jessica Stanley a lesson for teasing him.

I give this story 5 stars for finally giving me the graphic lemons that I can find in some fan fic - but if you are looking for a lot of plot and character development **giggle** this is not the book to down

I really love Cheyenne McGray's books. Her erotic books always have a great story. At first I wasn't sure how I'd like the story because Jessica was so young. Not too young, just younger then I like for my heroines. I soon forgot about her age and got right into the story.

I loved Craig and his brother. So sexy.

This is a wonderful story that is both erotic and romance. A plus in my book. You really see how much these characters like love each other.

This was free in the kindle store and reviewers said it was like 50 shades of grey, so I gave it a try.

I'm going to be completely frank with y'all - this book is porn. And that's cool if reading porn is your thing - it honestly is a good book for you. If you like just reading raw sex scenes, where there is no plot or character development, this book is for you. But for me - this book was WAY too far past my comfort level, and I didn't even finish it. I made it about 80% before I was like, yeah -

Jessica has a thing for her professor. And he knows it. She's been hands-off to him because she was his student, but when she is naked in his office on the last day of school, he decides to take a chance. Turns out, the good professor is a bit of a Dom. Jessica had no idea and when he basically asks her to play, she agrees without any clue of what she's getting into. And the professor pushes her... HARD. He reminds her that she can use her safeword, but that means everything stops and she has to ...more

Holy lady porn batman! Taking Instruction (Taboo 1) by Cheyenne McCray was all kinky sex, all the time. There was a bit of a story, but not much. But if your in need of a hard-core get-in-the-mood book with BDSM and menage, this may be for you.

Craig is a professor, and Jessica is his student. She has been flirting with him all semester, and he has been hiding behind the podium in order to cover his non-stop erection. But he knows, be

This book within the Taboo series was an ok read for me but still good for me as well. The professor and the student concept was interesting and a good taboo fantasy to read. Also throw in a bit of BDSM and it became juicy. Jessica was definitely very persistent and surely did her job well by tempting and teasing Graig to get what she wanted. These brothers in the series are so sexy and likable. For most this book might just be ok, but would advise reading the whole series to better und

I read taking instruction just before school started.Not a good idea.A teacher who is hot and into BDSM was what it took to make me cry in frustration when I saw my teachers.Craig is a teacher at the university Jessice attends.The sexual attarction is in the air.So Jessica when the semester ends takes the matter in her on hands.So when Craig walks into the office see's her as her mom birthed her.He takes her to his house and they have fun.

Another fast and dirty one. I liked the menage/BDSM elements and that ultimately the Professor wasn't willing to share Jessica more than that one time. It gave the book an edge of sweetness that would have otherwise been lacking.

This book was a free Kindle download I picked up 06/25/12 for the Why Buy the Cow? reading challenge.

As typical with Elora's Cave books this one was full of cheesy lines, unbelieveable love at first sight and of course, sex. Still, for something to pass the time at work, it's just what it should be. Quick, easy and no thought necessary.

It had a solid beginning, but the end was anti climatic.
Very sexy :-) and a fun read, if the price is right I may be tempted to read about the other 3 brothers.

This was a real quick read.

Tons of sex! No story plot.

Hell I will admit I just read it for the smut alone.

Nice quick little bedtime story. Just what I needed. lol

Great book

This book was about a professor and student that are into bdsm. They fall into love after spending a summer together. Great book.

Good read

Excellent quick read. I would like to know what happens after summer break. This book definitely leaves me wanting more.

The title Taking Instruction is a great pun on what a professor does for a student and the relationship for the two main characters is professor/student. Jessica is a go after what she wants kind of girl and she wants Craig Bennett, her English professor. She is aware he wants her too; he watches her in class when he thinks she is not watching him. The situation is written in a way that is sweet and then she goes to his office and waits for him after class.

This free short story got it right. I have read many BDSM stories that just didn’t do it for me. This short story on the other hand was wonderful. Straight up porn and straight to the sex.

It begins with a young student named Jessica who has the hots for her teacher. Of course the teacher can’t take his eyes off Jessica the entire semester. She surprises him at the end of the semester by showing up in his office naked as the day she was born. To her surprise her teacher accepts her open invitati

Schools out, Jessica decides to make a move but isn't aware she is ending into a world of BDSM and Craig wants her as a sub. Things progress over the summer from lust to love with a lot of hot sex in between.

I've always loved erotica and the sexuality that lay between the pages. I've always been a sucker for Harlequin books and contemporary romance. I do admit that there have always been certain types of erotica that I usually stayed away from. BDSM was always one of those. After reading Fifty Shades of Grey, however, I've found myself searching out any book like it.

Taking Instruction was a short read and served it's purpose. I enjoyed the book and only had a couple of problems with it.

This was a free book on amazon that I downloaded. It was a very short read. Jessica is a twenty year old college student who has the hots for her teacher, Professor Craig Bennett. She tried to seduce him all year and finally took an extreme approach the day before summer break by waiting on him in his office naked. Professor Bennett and Jessica then embark on a erotically filled summer where he introduces her to his wicked ways and lifestyle of BDSM.

I would have liked this story to be a bit longer. Everything felt extremely rushed, and it was over before I really even connected with the characters. When BDSM-type stories are rushed, it's even harder for me. I like to get inside the minds of the people who are participating in these things, because staying superficial makes the experience very very different. I didn't think this was a bad book, though. It was sexy and interesting, and the end was kind of cute. Plus, I love teacher/student tr ...more

Taking Instruction took me completely by surprise; I love a man that is a geek with a sexy wicked side to him. I laughed so hard when the professor asked his brother (the officer) to read the girl her Miranda rights. “You have the right to remain silent anything in this room can and will be used against you” LMAO…..

A female student is obsessed with her teacher and during her class break, she decides to do something about it. Little does she know her teacher who is about 10 years older than her is a freak in bed and a Dom.

Female student gets more than she bargains for, even gets a twofer as the teacher's brother stops by.

This is a short read, so everything happens pretty quickly. My only complaint and the only reason I didn't rate it higher was that the teacher had a lot of "toys" lying around his house.

Not entirely sure what to think about this little book. I suppose if you take everything kinky and BDSM and cram it into a 60-70 pages and try to make it sound hot and sexy with a taboo theme of student seduces her professor then I guess it is pretty good. Remotely realistic? Hell no. It is pretty much sex, sex and more sex with little regard to BDSM rules. However, if you want a easy, mindless, hot read then this is for you.

Taking Instructions was awesome. Because it is a novella it only took a few hours to read. If this was a full length book it would give 50 shades of gray a run for its money (I liked this WAYYY more than that book). So many people have the teacher/student fantasy and this book brings that to life. I cannot wait to read the other books in this series. I’m so happy that Cheyenne Mc Cray decided to re-release this series under the Jaymie Holland name.

I really liked how this one started off. Naughty student seduces hot professor. Sexy BDSM escalates very quickly. The domineering professor dishes it out and the student takes it. The dialogue is a little cheesy and it culminates into a quick forced ending. Overall it is a naughty nugget for when you need just that.
