Published: January 7, 2016
When they met online they were equals...Then she walks into his classroom.
For four months Eva March shared almost every secret with a handsome stranger. It was easy when she didn't have to meet his gaze in real life. The online flirtation was fun. She could be a strong, put-together woman without a sordid past. Most importantly, he'd never know the truth.
Grady Addison takes his job as a professor seriously. He doesn't sleep with co-eds, much less his students. Eva doesn't even fit his leggy, peppy blonde requirements, but he can't walk away now. He's spent too much time fantasizing about her, her smile and the way her eyes darken when she thinks of her past.
And her past is a problem. The secrets she hasn't yet told him could end his career and for Eva, her life could just come crashing down...again.
“ If you are not into Geeks, after reading 'To One Hundred' you will be a Geek lover for sure. You will discover Geeks make great lovers. Waiting for the next one in this series!!!”-Goodreads Reviewer
“This was an interesting story! I am not a “geek” and I don’t know anything about the “geek”world, so this was sort of an inside look into the “geek world”-The Smutbrarians
“This book was fun and super hot!! I can’t wait to see what else comes from this series, since it seems to focus on the 4 main men in the book! I’ll definitely be buying the next in the series!!” -Alpha Book Club
Okay, any book whose characters are Firefly fans already starts off with a thumbs up from me. The fact that the characters, writing and story are all well thought out, interesting and have depth means that thumbs up continues to be easily earned. That this is a teacher-student romance is a bonus, letting this fall into the taboo category.
If I was Eva, I'd be perving on Grady too. I absolutely fell for him-which was pretty much guaranteed to happen with his loyalty to his true family, all-in attitude, protective nature (especially with his brother), and of course his hot and sexy self (icing on the cake). Eva was a little harder for me to warm up to, but I did like how she kept standing up to her sister...with one exception (sorry, can't tell you since it'll spoil things).
The two of them fit well together, but the teacher/student aspect of their relationship guarantees that there's angst-especially when Eva's sister is involved. This provides the major part of the drama along with Grady's brother's issues, and continues to provide tension and act as the catalyst for a significant scene with Eva's sister that's a turning point in the story.
I really enjoyed all of the supporting characters and can't wait for the rest of their stories. Eva's sister though--there were several points at which I wanted to tell her off. No matter how things finally turned out, I found her attitude toward Eva stifling and condescending.
Filled with drama, tension, heat and plenty of Firefly references (again, LOVE that!), To One Hundred was a 4-star read for me and has me hooked for the next books in the series. Recommended for 18+ due to adult language and sexual content.
