Great sexual tension that stretched longer than I expected, given that both were hot for each other from the instant they met. I liked that their sexual forays were consistent with heroine’s issues with sexual intimacy & their attempts to stay within their student-teacher roles. It became evident that their attraction was not just physical. They had one of those unexplainable connection that comes from fate & not the logic of having known each other or liking each other’s good looks. Some of the seriousness of the book was balanced well with the humor from heroine’s quirkiness & sometimes funny insecurities. The college culture was the main locale of the book. It provided a contrast between heroine’s college mentality & Hero’s post-college one. I admired Hero’s patience with heroine doing her alcohol get-togethers with her classmates & club-hopping while he stayed home alone with his books. He was also patient with her uncertainty about him & her male friend. Heroine’s uncertainties were quite average for college seniors like her…except for her secret affair with her professor.
