After a drunken hookup, I never thought I would see Tucker again...
Until he strolls into my classroom like he owns the school.
He handed out orgasms like it was his job.
Now, it’s my turn to grade him.
I’m a teaching assistant until the end of the semester.
A position I scored because I’m a goody-two-shoes.
Not the girl who sleeps with smoking hot hockey players.
But he’s failing the class, and I can help him pass.
So, we come to an agreement.
One that ends with us breaking all the rules…
And if I’m not careful, my heart.

Get you a Tucker! You know I think Tucker gets a bad rap, but this book gave us more of our favorite bad boy. I enjoyed this book, but felt it could have been just a but more for me to rate it a full 5 stars. I liked the forbidden aspect of this book.
The plot of this book was interesting. I felt for Tucker. I mean in the last book, if you read it, he kind of gets a raw deal. I mean it was a messed up situation in all, but my heart ached for poor Tucker. I liked seeing him get his own story, even if it meant he had to go through more stuff.
The characters in this book were dynamic. Obviously I lived Tucker. I root for the underdog and I feel he really was one under his tough exterior. Sam was a cool chick. I liked her alright. I did find her annoying at times, but she was chill.
I liked the chemistry between the two characters. They had this whole scorned past thing going on. Add in the forbidden teachers assistant aspect and the heat was thrilling.
The writing style of the book was good. I liked the steady pace. The story is told from dual point of views. I liked seeing the other characters. My only complaint is there is a gossip girl feel to this book that wasn't present in the others. It confused me as to where it came from.
Overall, I liked this book. It was a solid book for this series. I really like that we are getting another book after and that it is about a different character I've come to love
Writing Style: 4/5
“Can the playboy change his ways? 3 stars”
Hockey, women, and partying is what Tuckers life consists of. Some switch in Tucker flips and he realizes he needs to grow up. That’s when he meets Sam or meets her again. Will he be able to show her he’s changed? And what happens when he develops feelings for the woman who’s supposed to be teaching him?
Sam is the serious type and has no room in her life for someone like Tucker. But those old feelings from back when she first met Tucker start to come back to the surface. Will he be able to convince her he’s changed? Will she be able to step outside of her comfort zone and be with him?
Teaching Tucker wasn’t exactly what I was thinking it was going to be. Where Sam is his TA I figured it would have more of a taboo theme but it wasn’t really expanded on. It was like the characters did a complete 180 in personalities and just hooked up. Honestly the only thing that held my attention was the subplot on who was behind the blog posts.
It could just be me and not loving Teaching Tucker. If you take a chance on it I hope you enjoy it.
