Title: French Lessons
Publisher: Silver Publishing
Characters: Jesse, Corwin
Sub-Genre: Contemporary, Erotic Romance, BDSM
Jesse goes to French classes with a friend, but soon spends more time having erotic daydreams about the teacher than he does on learning the language.
He is caught not paying attention once too often. Corwin, the class tutor, gives Jesse an ultimatum–a one-on-one lesson to prove he’s worthy to continue or be thrown out of the class.
Jesse accepts the challenge, but is his French up to the mark?
Moreover, is that the only lesson Corwin wants to give him?
We get the story from Jesse’s point of view. He’s not really interested in French, but he’s got the hots for his teacher, Corwin. Whenever Corwin uses that seductive French accent, Jesse turns to putty. Jesse spends his classes listening to the voice instead of the words, getting aroused, and doodling on his notebook. Then one day Corwin confronts Jesse for not paying attention, and tells him he’s out of the class. But Jesse begs for another chance, and Corwin agrees to some one-on-one lessons.
What we have here is major attraction, and Jesse hopes the feeling is mutual. When they have their private lesson, French is spoken—even amid spanking and super hot sex. Jesse is adorable and shy in his crush, and Corwin is wicked and playful in a very toppy manner. Since this is such a short story, we don’t get a lot of insight into these men and their lives. That took out the half star for me, as it felt like the men lacked depth, Corwin especially since we don’t get his side of the story.
I liked the story as quickie erotic romance, with more sex and sexual innuendo than getting to know each other or deep conversations. If you’re looking for something fast and hot, this one’s definitely for you.
