Finding his way out of the darkness could be the biggest fight of his life.

Living In…, Book 1

Law professor Eleanor May is fine with taking over a class for a colleague on sabbatical. She’s not so fine with the hot student who’s always seated front and center. Once upon a time she was that student…and the scars remain eight years after it ended.

Yet this guy seems different from the others. Despite the alarm bells in her head warning her about history repeating itself, she is drawn toward the forbidden once again—even though this time it could consume her.

Lucien North’s past is darker than the ink on his skin, a reminder of a time when survival was a fight to the death. Seducing his beautiful professor wasn’t supposed to be part of his plan to put it behind him, but there’s something about Eleanor that’s gotten hold of him and won’t let go.

Together they light up the night, but will their powerful desire lead them to love—or drag them both to the brink of disaster?

Warning: Contains a younger man so hot he might scorch your fingertips, and forbidden lust so tempting, there’s no point in trying to resist. Check your inhibitions at the door—it’s WTFery 101 and class is in session.

My Opinion  0 STARS
**Copy Provided by Netgalley and Samhain Publishing for an honest review**

This book focuses on two damaged people who help each other through their pain in order to live fuller lives.

Lucien is a 25 year old law student who sits in the front row of his class. Professor Eleanor May is his 38 year old teacher. Both have an attraction to each other but it is Lucien that goes for what he wants.

Eleanor has been very hurt in the past and has been on the teacher-student role before but in the other way. Her sexual preference as a sub was betrayed by her husband.

Lucien is cold inside. He had to be to cope in Africa after his parents were killed in front of him. It is Eleanor that warms him up and who gives him the greatest gift. Her trust.

It focuses on some gritty issues but they are portrayed well, i just wish there was an epilogue so we could see how they were getting on a little way down the road.

A brilliant start to the series.
