Seduce the teacher.

Steal the painting.

Andrea Anderson has no clue of the thoughts churning around in the dark and dangerous ex-con’s head as he enters her classroom. In fact, she’s momentarily lost for words. Not in her entire teaching career has she had a student who looked quite like Stu Cross.

A widow at just twenty-eight, love is something Andie hasn’t considered a part of her life for a very long time. However, when lingering touches turn to whispered words and hot, searching stares, she begins to wonder if maybe she should take a leap of faith.

But Stu is in her class for a reason, and it has nothing to do with love. He’s there to burrow his way into her life and repay a debt, otherwise his family will suffer. Andie is the first person to show him true kindness since he left prison, and though he doesn’t want to mislead her, he doesn’t have another choice.

Before long, Stu can’t tell whether or not he’s acting anymore, and his feelings for Andie could throw all of his carefully crafted plans into complete and utter disarray.

**Can be read as a stand alone.


This series. This series! This series is one of my favorites and has been since that day I decided to open up and start reading Six Of Hearts! Jay and Matilde stole my heart that day and every other character in this series since has as well!

We first met Stu in King Of Hearts, then got a little bit more of him in Hearts Of Blue, and I was so anxious to get his book in my hands! The story is written in Andie's point of view and I took to her right away. She is such a sweet caring soul. She's a teacher and teaches an adult education class and this is where she meets Stuart Cross. She instantly decides that she wants to help Stu better himself, and show him that there is more available to him, but he only has one thing in mind and it's not doing homework. There is so much tension, so much teasing, with just enough heart wrenching moments to keep my eyes glued to the pages.  Stu is so very sexy and I love how slowly but surely more about him comes to light. He's used to being put in that hot but dumb category, but Andie doesn't treat him that way. She has so much faith in him and sees his full potential, inspiring him.  I loved the push and pull with these characters, knowing right and wrong, but not always being to able to make the easy choice.

Cosway again delivers a masterpiece! This kind of story that has me hook, line, and sinker from the very first chapter. I honestly can't form into words how much I love this series, and how excited I am for the next book, which can't come soon enough. If you haven't read this series yet drop what you're doing and read it now!

5/5 Fangs
