This is my third Dev Bentham and there is a consistent thing in her stories that leaves me flat. I will say there are less loose strings in this one even though I am still not satisfied. Nathan an older college professor falls for one of his students. I like the age difference and I really liked and...

Ordinarily, I love student/professor stories, add in that the student is a hooker, and this should be golden! Unfortunately, I was kind of bored through a lot of this, and just when I was really getting into it, Nathan did something that pissed me off. I also don't get rimming but not blowing withou...

If I hadn't lived a student-professor-waiting-for-the-student-to-graduate situation, I probably would have enjoyed this book more. Or maybe not.

“The first rule of ecology is that small shifts beget big change. Everything is connected.” So teaches Nathan Kohn.And so unfolds the story of a college teacher of aquatic/environmental studies and his student.

3.5 stars for me on this one. It was well written and very sweet. I am also a sucker for rent boys which was what drew me in to this story in the first place. There is a big age gap between the characters, but that didn't bother me much. There were a few things that didn't quite jive along the w...

I'm a sucker for rent boy stories, what can I say? :)This one is a bit different since Nate is Isaac's teacher at the University.They find each other attractive but know that at least as long as they are student/teacher nothing can come of it.Well.....they meet again at Isaac's place of work and Nat...

The book is pretty monotone and steady. However, there were 2 things that disturbed me. :1: The use of the cucumber was yuck. :2: The fact that Isaac was concerned about getting tested, but Nate never did. I understand that Isaac was doing some stuff as his "job", but Isaac was with a partner that...

Joint review with Lou originally posted here: http://thebookpushers.com/2012/05/02/joint-review-learning-from-isaac-by-dev-bentham/Lou: MinnChica and I didn’t have enough good things to say about Moving in Rhythm. So it’s with sadness that I’m writing this negative review about Learning from Isaac. ...

3.5 stars. Good m/m romance about a college professor who's mutually attracted to one of his students (a senior), but they agree not to act on that attraction until after graduation. And then the professor runs into the student in a most unexpected place...
