Academy of Love - Review & Giveaway

Academy of Love
By Kate Deveaux

Cassianna Baxter steps into The Lewiston Academy For Girls for the first time in twelve years.  This time, instead of walking the halls as a student, she is now the Deputy Head Mistress at the academy.  As she looks out at the stables, a place that she has spent countless hours, memories flood her thoughts.  The memories aren’t only of her days riding, but of Lawrence Taylor … her riding coach, first love and the man who broke her heart.  Those days were well in the past though.  Cassianna hasn’t seen Lawrence since she fled the academy and was positive that he had left the school years ago.  To her surprise, she bumps into him while giving a tour of the school.  He not only still works at the academy, he is the Chairman of the Board of Trustees there.  Seeing Lawrence again brings back all of the memories they shared.  Memories of their passion and her strong attraction to him.   But Cassianna is hesitant to walk down that road again with him.  He walked away from her before without even an explanation.  Her fear was that he would do it again.  But her feelings and the strong sexual attraction that they share is too much for Cassianna to deny.  Reluctantly, she decides to go with her heart.  She just hopes that he doesn’t break it again.  

I really enjoyed reading Academy of Love.  The chemistry that the characters had was undeniable, their passion was hot and the scenes were steamy.  I thought that the story was well written and couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next.  If you’re looking for a hot story with even hotter characters, then this book is for you.  I would definitely recommend this book to others and look forward to seeing what the author has in store for us next.

  7. I have to be honest. My all time favorite genre is mystery -- but romantic mystery/suspense is top within that, and then cozies. But I do like romance, usually more of the 'sweet', perhaps comedic, kind with an occasional HOT, STEAMY one thrown in for good measure.

  8. Thanks so much for stopping by! Loved hearing from you and hope you'll enjoy back to school like never before in ACADEMY OF LOVE!
