Back Blurb 

Serafina Luca, straitlaced Manhattan professor of erotic literature, isn't one to blush at a few raunchy words, but her experience in the bedroom is hardly bestseller material. She's not sure the passion in the books she teaches is possible in real life, let alone for her. But then she meets Nick Stellato.

The construction foreman may look like a guy's guy, but he knows how to treat a woman. One look at Serafina's luscious figure, and he wants to prove it to her. One dinner date and their sizzling chemistry is undeniable. Soon, it's the professor getting a lesson or two...and Nick is a willing teacher. What surprises him is how much he enjoys the time he spends with Serafina outside the bedroom--and how easily he can imagine a future together.

Before long, Serafina is falling hard for Nick, too. But how can a timid academic with virtually no past fulfill his dreams of an adventurous future?

What I LIKED about this book.

The closeness of family. Nick was patient in his pursuit of Serafina but also assertive in what he wanted from her. A thoughtful alpha male.

What I DISLIKED about this book.

Lack of communication. Serafina makes a big relationship decision on behalf of both parties without consulting Nick. Makes for good tension but irritates me. Wanted to shake her. 

Full Review

Serafina Luca is a professor teaching the most popular class at the college. It is all about literature and the erotic word. Students call her Luscious Luca, because she is hot. Teaching such a class, you might expect Serafina to know more about passion than what is written in books. You would be wrong. For the past few months she has to pass a large area of construction on her way to work. Every morning the men whistle and shout at her. She hates it. Things get worse when one man decides to grab her. Nick, the construction foreman, comes to her rescue.

Nick cannot get the beautiful Serafina out of his mind. One date with her and Nick is sure she is the woman he wants to know better. Serafina's passionless existence becomes a distant memory. Everything is roses until someone starts vandalizing Nick's truck and following Serafina. Minor nuisances escalate into life threatening attacks.

I enjoyed getting to know Nick and Serafina. Nick's family is fantastic. I adore his sister, Gia. His father does not have as many scenes, but the moment he came to Serafina's "rescue" from his younger son's embarrassing questions he cemented a place in my heart. My favorite is Nick's mom. I love this woman. She is my favorite character in the book.
