Publisher's Summary

The jock law student who has it all

Judge Daughtler was born into privilege, anything he wants he gets. During a night out at a club, Judge meets a mysterious stranger named Flynn, and there is an immediate flash of interest from both men. Judge loses Flynn in the crowd when a fight breaks out and vows to find him again. Unfortunately, Flynn is only too easy to track down because, as it turns out, he is a teacher at Judge’s law school. Undeterred, Judge pursues him.

The teacher searching for a second chance

Flynn Goddard has had a terrible few months—first his partner of 25 years left him for a much younger man, which put his life into a tailspin and destroyed his finances. Now Flynn is horrified that the first new man he is interested in is a law student. Worst of all, Judge doesn’t seem to understand why they could both get into trouble if they indulge in a relationship. Flynn must be a sensible adult and put his foot down; however, Judge is charming and determined.

Up in flames

Flynn loses the battle and begins to date Judge. The relationship looks bad from the outside, but they want to be together. Flynn knows Judge better now—there is a big heart to go along with his cocky attitude. If Flynn and Judge keep their relationship under wraps, everything should be fine, but life has a funny way of throwing wrenches into even the best plans. Will they be able to stay together through the challenges that come their way? Or will Judge crumble and run, the same way Flynn’s ex did? 

Flynn and Judge have a hard time figuring out their lives, but by the end of this second-chance romance full of flirty fun, they get their happily ever after!

Excellent Story..even better narration!

You guys have done it again! I loved this age gap romance..the chemistry between the two MC’s was palpable and the narrator really brought them to life. I loved that BDSM aspect and also how the D/s relationship was different from what you normally expect. Definitely a favorite of mine and will be re-listening to it often.

“It was his issue”

In Last chapter, ‘sir’ blamed his actions that upset ‘rookie’ as “his issue”. Ignoring your lover while talking with another guy for two hours is not someone else’s issue.

Higher Education

This book is a stand-alone but is set in the New Gothenburg world Ki Brightly and M.D. Gregory have created. Judge and Flynn are a very unlikely pair. Judge is Flynn’s Law student. They met in a club before the semester started. Flynn tried to stay away from Judge but just couldn’t deny him. I really enjoyed this book. It was a very unique D/S relationship. R. C. Willis did an amazing job narrating this book.

Higher Education

When Flynn’s best friend takes him out to a club to get over his cheating ex, he is not looking for anything but what he finds is a gorgeous younger man who turns his world upside down. Judge is not a man who takes no for an answer. When he sees his chance with Flynn, he grabs for it.

I enjoyed Flynn and Judge. The two are good together and it was fun being along for the ride as the two figure things out. Both men are strong have a lot to give. There is a lot more to Judge than what he shows the world, and it was nice to see him help Flynn find his inner strength. Their story moves along nicely, it is not only hot and sexy but full of emotions as well. Narrator R. C. Willis brings this world and its characters to life and had me lost in their story right from the start.

You're mine!

While initially being told "you're mine" in the beginning of a relationship may be cute or maybe even endearing, but by the 56th time, all I hear and see is "stalker", "controlling". Other than that, the book was decent.

loved it

I loved this book. R. C. Willis really brings this story to life and makes you love the characters even more. Flynn Goddard life is in shambles. His partner of 25 years left him for a younger man destroying his finances in the process. He is a law school teacher. His friend Brant convinces Flynn to go to the club with him to have fun. Flynn meets a man and when a fight breaks out Flynn bolts. Judge Daughtler meets a amazing man named Flynn but during a fight the man disappeared. Judge finds out its easy to find Flynn because he is a teacher at the law school he attends. Will the obstacles they face bring them together or force them apart?

Fanfreakintastic

I read the ebook version of this and loved it but the audio just brought so much to life. R.C.’s performance was perfect and I fell even more in love with Judge and Flynn. This is an amazing example of one of my favorite tropes by some of my favorite authors!

Not my cup of tea

It has my favorite tropes (teacher/student, age gap, forbidden romance), but in my opinion, this book is for those who are looking for a smutty erotica story rather than interested in a good plot or relationship development. The sexy times take up a lot of space and, even though it's very well written and hot, the "BDSM" aspect is cringy. These guys don't know the first thing about a D/S dynamic and just jump into it doing all sorts of wrong things. Rather than being a Dom, Judge is an arrogant, spoiled, entitled, bossy jerk who is rude to everyone else, and treats Flynn like a child, taking away all of his choices. Instead of trying to conquer his dominance over Flynn, as a good Dom would do, Judge is abusive and possessive.

Flynn, on the other hand, throws away all ethics and moral standards about a teacher/student personal relationship and caves to Judge from the get-go.

So, like I said, suitable for a smutty erotica story. It that's your jam, go for it.

Sweet, sexy and emotionally compelling

I loved the role reversal of Judge being younger and dominant with Flynn being an older sub.
Flying has been really hurt by his last partner, Chris who is absolutely vile.
As a result he doesn't believe he's worthy of what he craves, to be absolutely owned and then adored.
Judge is perfect for him because he sees Flynn for who he is, the sweetest sub who just needs to believe he deserves everything he wants.
Judge's cocky pursuit of Flynn was everything and the muscle worship was hawt!!!
These two were scorching together but more than that, their emotional connection and intimacy was beautiful to see.
Judge is perfect for Flynn because he accepts him as he truly is and Flynn is a stabilizing force for Judge who has simply been handed everything without having to work for it but that changes because he wants to be worthy of Flynn who helps him stand on his own with his support.
I'm definitely interested in a story about Jury and the cute librarian.
R. C. Willis did an amazing job bringing these characters to life.

Chemistry!

I loved Judge and Flynn's story! The author's are so clever with their interconnected series, books and characters and these "new" characters are just as awesome!

The chemistry between Flynn and Judge is off the charts and while they're enjoying their passion the authors didn't sugar coat the story, there's a hefty dose of real life consequences for some parts of that passion 😉. I really liked that the story was down to earth and real. Actions have consequences and sometimes you do have to make sacrifices or compromises in life and love!

I really really hope we get to see these characters again and that Jury gets his own story too!!!

Flynn and Judge

25 yr breakup with Chris sends Flynn into a club where he hooks up with Judge, unbeknown to Flynnis a student at the Law school where teaches. Judge won't take it as a 1 night stand and chases Flynn. Beautifully written and narrated superbly. Younger Dom makes this a wonderful story.

Somehow I laughed more than when I read it

Somehow Willis managed to narrate this in such a way that I was genuinely howling with laughter at moments. This is a story I love, for me it’s student/teacher done right! It didn’t seem awkward, it didn’t have that perfect ‘nobody gets in trouble’ part and honestly I loved that because it was somewhat more realistic. Judge and Flynn are both very enjoyable characters and their story is very easy, it isn’t a dark story. I will 100% be re-listening to this, I don’t know for sure what it is but for it’s an easy listen.

An entertaining audio book

I like it when there is a younger dom and an older sub in stories. So I was very curious to see how Judge and Flynn's relationship would develop.
When the two met in a club, the chemistry was just right. And it wouldn't be long before the two met again, but in a completely unexpected place. For Flynn is a teacher at the school Judge is studying at.
I enjoyed the story very much. I liked the family dynamic that Judge finds himself in. He has a twin brother named Jury who he is very close with. And he also gets along very well with his fathers. He also doesn't know money worries as a child of rich parents.
However, Judge and Flynn are very different. Not only is there the age gap, Flynn has been in a relationship for many years and now has a lot of problems. Judge is still very young, but he knows he wants Flynn and he acts accordingly possessive.
I liked the development of Judge and Flynn's relationship. The two are hot together and unexpectedly tender in between.
If you like special dom-sub stories, I can absolutely recommend this audiobook. A very refreshing story.

I didn't know the narrator R.C. Willis before, but I liked his narration immensely. He reads pleasantly and I could distinguish all the characters well. He understood how to bring the story to life. He did a good job of intonation and his narration was entertaining.

Entertaining

The narration by R.C. Willis gave this story the right sound for these characters. They really came to life and the tone of the conversations really gave each of the characters a more distinct personalities. This is a definite age gap story. Right from the start I had to laugh when Judge is so determined to be with Flynn. Judge is a twin and his brother Jury has a pretty unique personality also. After the initial meeting with Flynn, Judge is sure Flynn is someone he needs to be in a relationship with.
Flynn on the other hand is still trying to get over his ex. He is just out to have a little fun but not ready to even think about another person in his life. As things progress the relationship gets steamier. I also was entertained by the dads and how they deal with their sons. This story has so much to it that held my attention and entertained me. The only character I didn’t like is Flynn’s ex otherwise they are all pretty likable people. I didn’t see where this is a series but I hope that Jury’s story gets told.
