Naia and the Professor – Scorching Hot but not Sleezy


Review by Katherine Deane

One of the best first chapters I have ever read! And it didn’t stop there.

I finished this awesome story in two nights, and man it was worth staying up late for!  This story is described as light BDSM, and a good amount of spanking.  It was scorching hot, but not sleazy.

Ten years ago, Naia White accused her teacher, Professor Liam Templar, of spanking her.  This untrue accusation cost him his career, his reputation, and his life.  When Naia finds him, and attempts to apologize, ten years later, he agrees, with one caveat. She must accept the spanking that she accused him of ten years ago.

This scene took my breath away. It was so well done, I could feel the tension, the arousal, the desire, all of it.  This first chapter will always be remembered as one of the best first chapters I have ever read.  I had a tough time putting the book down after that.

The tempo didn’t falter from there.  After some very emotional communication, they were able to explain their own vulnerable positions, and be honest about their desire for each other.  Liam had been hurt before, and was afraid Naia won’t be able to handle the BDSM world he lived in.

I really appreciated how caring Liam was for Naia’s emotional well-being.  Instead of dominating her, and trying to force her to bow to his will, he gave her the power in safe words –  violin for “stop”, and roses for “it’s getting to be too much”.

I appreciate a man who cares about safety. Speaking of safety, he used condoms. Very nice.  And nothing was lost in the intensity of these scenes. In fact, I think it made the scenes hotter, and more realistic.


Liam invited Naia to go on a weekend trip with him, to get to know each other, and to see if she could handle his extreme lifestyle.  This was absolutely delicious! He played and punished and titillated; she accepted, submitted and reciprocated. I lived vicariously through their weekend …. Mmm, nipple clamps, anal beads, a little bit of bondage, and of course, some great spankings! I loved it!

It was so much fun to read, I enjoyed their freedom and new found love.  They even introduced a new character, Liam’s brother, Luke.  I am sure we will see him in one of the next books.

The only thing I was a little disappointed in was the overall length of the story.   While I loved both characters, I would have really appreciated getting to know them more intimately, and not just in a BDSM kind of way. I mean emotionally.

I would have loved to have seen a few more scenes that showed their need for each other, their pain from their past, their growth. I think these two have so much more to offer, and I didn’t get to know them as well as I would have liked.  Granted, this is a series. We will probably see more of them in the other books.

Overall, it was a very enjoyable, sensual, fast paced read. It was steamy, hot, erotic, and quite well written.

I give this 5 stars for the writing, character chemistry, highly sensual scenes, HEA ending, and of course, awesome spankings. (There was a caning!)

Very nicely done.

I can’t wait to read her second book in the Templar brothers’ series.
