A little of this and a little of that.

Forbidden Love Stories


Top Ten Tuesday (TTT) is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, Jana, and the topic this week is:

August 28: Back to School/Learning Freebie (in honor of school starting back up soon, come up with your own topic that fits the theme of school or learning! Books that take place at school/boarding school/during study abroad, books you read in school, textbooks you liked/didn’t like, non-fiction books you loved or want to read, etc.)

This is Taboo. This is so wrong, it's right. And oh, my goodness I do enjoy a forbidden love story. I love the illicit-ness, the sneaking around, the inability to stay away from each other even when being together could cost them everything.

My pick for top ten (eleven) Teacher/Student Romances are:



Slammed (Slammed #1) by Colleen Hoover




Absinthe by Winter Renshaw
Loving Mr. Daniels by Brittainy C. Cherry
On the Island (On the Island #1) by Tracey Garvis-Graves




A Different Blue by Amy Harmon
Losing It (Losing It #1) by Cora Carmack




Always You (Love Hurts #1) by Missy Johnson
Eighteen: 18 by J.A. Huss


What are your thoughts on student/teacher romance novels? Have you read any of these books?

  1. I don't read romance novels at all but I read teen romances in my younger days. I read one about a girl with a crush on her teacher who was oblivious but the story was dumb and nothing ever happened between them. There were a few hot teachers at my school though!

    1. I have read some horrible student/teacher romances in the past, it made me wonder why I continued with the story. Most of my teachers of the past were old and priests!

  2. I read and enjoyed On An Island and Losing It. I am not much of a fan of student /teacher relationships. I think once I had a child that age it became a real turn off.

    1. I tend to agree with you. My child is just starting preschool age and it's not a genre I would enjoy reading. I am sure that, without children, it seems like an intriguing genre.

    2. On the Island is one of the first student/teacher romances I read. I can understand how you feel, it would be uncomfortable when you think of your children at that age as in the book.

  3. I adore the cover for Point of Retreat. It's lovely.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  5. This dynamic isn't really my thing, but sounds like you've had a lot of fun with these.

    1. Definitely not for everyone. I did enjoy all the one's I listed. It seems a few years ago this dynamic was popular in romance. I haven't seen one lately that I think is worth the read. Have a great day.

  6. I read The Blackbird season which, among other plot points, had a student/ teacher relationship that got messy. :)

    The cover of On The Island makes me want to be in the Caribbean!

    1. I may have to read The Blackbird Season by Kate Moretti, not for the student/teacher romance, because it's a thriller/mystery. Why did those birds fall from the sky...hmm. Thanks Greg.

  7. I have only read a few books with teacher student romances and none really stand out. I have read a few with characters that were about the same age with this kind of relationship that work better for me.

    1. Yes, I also like the romances where the characters are closer to the same age, college student/professors are fun to read about. Thanks for visiting Carole.

  8. I have read a few of these and I always loved student/teacher romances even though I'm a bit older now and I see the issues that can crop up with them! I still enjoy a well written one though, just as something for fantasy rather than something I can see happening in reality.

    1. Yes, yes, exactly, something to read for fantasy rather than something I actually want to see in reality. Thank you for visiting.

  9. Forbidden love indeed! These types of books are very popular, I know. I haven't read any of these, I'm afraid. Like Carole, if I read a student/teacher romance, it is more when they are both adults and the same age.

    1. I'm going to re-read Losing It it again soon. Hopefully I'll still enjoy it the second time around. Enjoy your day.

  11. I've not read any of these and am not sure how I would feel about that sort of storyline. I guess it would depend on the age and naivete of the student. I have read lots of non-genre books where the male characters feel they must perpetually teach any female characters, just without the job title!

    1. Oh yes, I wouldn't want to read about a student/teacher romance with young children and a teacher. That would be very wrong and creepy. Thanks for visiting Stephanie Jane.
