Synopsis

Synopsis

Getting pleasure from pain makes me a sadist. I’ve been that way for as long as I can remember. Plagued by painful memories and a dark past, I use women to help me forget. I’ve done everything in my power to take control of my life, but there are some things I have no control over.

People think they know who I am, but in reality, they know nothing.

My name is Mason Cline.

But after today, you will call me Professor Cline.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

Review

“If I were in your shoes I’d be freaked out, too.  But doing things in life that are the most forbidden are the most exciting and adventurous.”

I love, love, love a well-written student-teacher romance story. Thank you, J. M. La Rocca for knocking my socks off with this one. As a reader, you may be thinking, “We’ve read this before.”  But, believe me,  you haven’t. I am a connoisseur of this genre, and this is a new breed.  “You can’t judge a book by its cover.”  This is the old saying and generally holds true. I have been looking at the cover of Professor Cline Revealed for weeks now and had in mind, based on the cover, what he would be like. Alpha male, possessive, dominant, hot lover. But the words in the book tell the true tale, and he is not as one-dimensional as I had imagined. 

Mason

He is a well-educated, brilliant man of fierce control and authority. He plans his moves with precision and doesn’t like when surprises interfere with these plans. His routines keep him grounded, especially when it comes to women.  He has a particular way he goes about finding and having a woman…that’s it. They are prey for his taking. 

Emma

She is a bright and goal-driven young lady. She knows what she wants from life, and is doing everything she can to thrive in the life that she has currently.  She is comfortable in her current circumstances, not realizing that just around the corner could be a world she has never experienced. 

The initial interaction of these characters sets the stage for the story.  Theirs is an unlikely meeting, but is definitely one that we would look at and know is going to make the earth shake.  Each having their own life and moving at their own pace,  not expecting to find the other.  He immediately takes something from her, and he gives her one thing that has been missing in her life. It is a great foreshadowing for what is to come. 

From there, things are not as easy and plain as they may seem.  I am choosing not to give many elements of the story because it is definitely one that must be read to understand all of the secrets and details that are revealed. But, I will say that J.M. La Rocca has given us characters with great depth and dimension, from the main characters to the supporting characters that added their own special flavor.    I was moved during each interaction of Mason and Emma.  At times I wanted to cry, then I found myself lost in their passion.  There were also times when my predominant emotion was anger, especially when I began to have a greater understanding of what made Professor Cline tick.  This book, in my opinion, would not have been as good had we not been offered the dual character point-of-view, as we were able to read the male and female view of life and relationships.  My interest level was solidified within the first few pages and remained, intensifying with every flip of the page.  Interwoven in this theme of teacher-student romance was possible danger and darkness, making for a more fast-paced and exciting journey.  I am thrilled to have been introduced to the Professor and can’t wait to read the continuation of the story.

The words of Professor Cline that summarize my feelings for this book,

“You’re a fine wine I want to savor.”
