Crazy From the Heat by Mercy Celeste

 
 
Life is like high school.
For Grey Talbot teaching high school history was a choice. When a gorgeous blond punk of a kid walks into his class with attitude to spare, Grey fears his choice might just be his undoing.

High school kids kept getting younger and Paul Gaines stayed the same. Moving from one city narcotics unit to the next, his youthful looks and slender body made him a perfect undercover cop for the job.

Meeting the professor wasn't part of the deal. The man was smart sexy and off limits even if he was younger than Paul.

For Grey getting involved with one of his students, even if that student wore a badge meant playing with fire. Fire that could burn them both.
 


Hot for teacher in Alabama! 
M-  This was a fun read.  Some funny moments, some very serious moments.  Our two main characters have a past, that definitely haunts their current relationships.  This author did a great job of keeping you guessing.  Just enough hints to make it fun, then turning the tables in a smooth twist.  The love scenes were nicely handled with just enough lead up to keep it from being too angsty.
         I don't want to give too many spoilers away but I would like to say a couple things about the story.  There is a pretty fast connection between the main characters in the story because they are each others personal fantasy.  There is a lot of great play on the naughty school boy, and hot teacher fantasy.  Mind you these are both adults.  One just looks really young for his age.   One of the major conflicts of the story include the fact that even though Grey knows Paul isn't underage, it could still destroy his career if and when they get discovered.
        I would have gave it 4.5 stars out of 5.  Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars has to do with the conflict in the story.  The bad guys in the story were just not as villainous as I feel they could have been.  Some of the actions involving law enforcement were a little unrealistic but still fun to read.  All in all a good story!  Hope you check it out.
