Description from the publisher:
The rule was simple—don't fall in love with a student. Drake had never had that problem—not until he met the buxom brunette in the bar. Grace was one of a kind, virginal but far from chaste. When she wanted him to teach more than history, he was left with a choice that could ruin them both.

Grace was always the good girl, until she met her wild best friend, Christina, who pushed her out of her shell. She fell head over heels for the sexy, young college professor, but when everything shattered around her, she was left with figuring out who she really was. Her journey led her somewhere she never imagined, but along the way she learned that even the wildest roses have to put down roots in a place called home.
This is the first book in the Wild Rose series.  They will need to be read in order.
Grace is not a typical preacher’s daughter.  She is not a wild-child trying to prove herself… or she wasn’t, as long as she was in high school.  Now in college, she is ready to find herself.  With the help of her roommate, Christina, Grace begins to test her wings.  She learns to accept her BBW curves, accentuate them, and feel more confident.  She first meets Drake in a bar, and a couple of days later finds out that he is her history professor.  They try to deny their attraction to prevent the scandal that would be sure to follow, but some flames burn too brightly to be ignored.

OK, I’m going to tip-toe here, because I absolutely do not want to spoil this for anyone.  I loved this story.  So much that I forgot to pay attention to the time passing on the treadmill and kept on walking.  So much that I didn’t want to sleep.  So much that when sleep claimed me, I picked it back up immediately upon waking.  Grace is every girl… or maybe I just recognize me as a girl.  She is beautiful and bright.  She is unsure, but curious. Add in the impetuousness of youth and she is a volatile little firecracker ready to burst into her own womanhood.

There is not a cliff-hanger, but you will be screaming for the next book when you finish.  I’ve already given her my two-cents worth, privately because I refuse to spoil the surprise for you, dear reader.  Bottom line:  YES, you want to read this book!  My suggestion is buy it first thing in the morning, hang the Do Not Disturb sign, and order pizza for dinner.
