Need Me (Broke and Beautiful #2) by Tessa Bailey

Well now. That was an interesting romance. Older hero, younger heroine (by a nice sized clip)...a teacher and his student...big city guy and a girl from Kentucky. Need Me was a little edgy but oh it worked. It so worked.

The quick of it is that Honey...she's crushing hard on her English professor. And she's ready to start her seduction of this tweed and glasses rocking man. An accidental encounter locked in a cabinet, finding out they're friends know each other and, well, attraction through the roof despite the taboo-ness of it all and sparks...they are a flying.
I seriously loved Honey. She's young--only 19. But her spirit and everything about her was so easy to connect with. She's sweet, comforting, knows what she wants. Has an incredible mind and loves to take care of people and cook. I adored her. Wanted to be friends with her. Wanted to smack a difficult man for her.

Which brings us to Ben. There was a spell there that I was kind of okay with him being killed off. Well, not really killed. The man has a fine cock, wears glasses and loves books something fierce. So it would have been a shame for all of that to die. But a maiming? Oh yes. A maiming was in order. Holy but Ben is very good as screwing things up. He does so gloriously. But thankfully he can fix that as well. And somehow I managed to love him and his sexy self too.
"Exactly how much beer do you need to consume before you tell us how you, Mr. Rule Follower, ended up with your hands up a student's skirt?"

He abandoned his quest to get a decent grip on the pitcher and slapped both hands over his face instead. "Please, for the love of God, don't say things like 'hands' and 'skirt' and 'student'. Not out loud."

Louis looked amused. "You want us to come up with some sort of code?"

"Yes." Ben pushed up his glasses, but they slipped down again almost immediately. "That should have been obvious."

Russell threw an arm over the back of his seat, shit-eating grin firmly in place. "All right, Professor. How did you end up with your jackhammer so close to an off-limits coconut?"

Now Ben knew he needed to stop drinking, because in his drunken state, that nonsense actually sounded vastly better. 
Okay so the age difference and the teacher-student set up. I was real nervous about that but whew Bailey made it work. Just taboo enough to be exciting but not land in the creeper category. Brought in just enough drama and turmoil. Was sexy and total fantasy material. And lordy be. The heat was there as always. They're scorchers and will make a girl squirm just a bit.
He planted his hard cock between those gorgeous limbs and ground against her in a rough twist of his hips, just managing to get a hand over her mouth, capturing a moan that would have easily reached the house.

He pressed their foreheads together and looked her in the eye. "Listen to me." He waited for her nod. "You're going to take me somewhere now where I can see you without your panties on. I'm going to get you off good and hard, maybe a few times. And then, Honey, we're going to talk." He bucked his hips into her twice. "But first, I'm going to fuck you so dirty, you won't be able to look anyone but me in the eye afterward. Have you heard everything I've said?"

He removed his hand so she could answer.

"Yes. Okay, Ben."

"Good. I'll be in the truck." He stepped back, letting her slide down the wall. "Tell them whatever gets us out of here."
You really can't go wrong with a Tessa Bailey book. Fun, sexy, a little bit down and dirty. They're a hit every single time. She knocks out fantastic reads again and again and hot damn! it's a good time. 

Have you read Bailey? Have a favorite?
Any slightly taboo reads you just love?

When Honey Perribow traded in her cowboy boots for stilettos and left her small Kentucky town to attend Columbia University, she never expected to find a dirt-cheap apartment or two new best friends. No stranger to hard work, Honey is completely focused on her medical degree … until she sees newly minted professor Ben Dawson, and her concentration is hijacked. Honey is fascinated by her gorgeous young English professor and vows to find a crack in his tweed-wearing, glasses-clad exterior.

At an off-campus party, an accident lands Ben in a dark, locked closet with a sexy-sounding Southern belle … and their chemistry is explosive. But when he discovers that the girl in his arms is the same beautiful student he can't stop thinking about, he is stunned. Student-teacher relationships are strictly forbidden … yet no matter how hard he tries, Ben can't stay away from Honey.

And when his attempt to fight their attraction nearly ruins the best thing that ever happened to him, Ben will do anything to prove how much he needs her.
