I'd always been a good girl.
Sure, I sped, I'd played hooky from previous jobs, I'd had a drink before I was twenty-one, and there was the one time I'd skipped class my junior year.
But I'd never been pulled over, fired, arrested, or gotten detention.
I was a good girl.
Until I wasn't.
I became a bad, bad girl.
I'd wanted to be a teacher for as long as I could remember, and I thought I'd never do anything to give that up.
Until I met Mace Wagner.
The first time I saw him, I thought he was the assistant football coach. He was tall, broad-shouldered, and the most beautiful man I'd ever seen.
I didn't know he was my student.
I didn't know he would screw my brains out.
I didn't know I would fall in love with him.
I didn't know I would risk everything to be with him.
Passing Grade deals with a student-teacher relationship. All individuals are over eighteen and consenting adults.

Eden Margaret Fijalkowski has always been the good girl. Not one to (generally) break the rules, when she moves to Texas to take a full-time job teaching high school sciences, she suddenly finds herself willing to break all the rules.
Mason (Mace) Wagner is 18 and a high school senior on the fast-track to get a full ride to college and not for his athletic achievements, but for his academic ones. When he catches Eden checking him out on the football sidelines, he is more than interested in returning the favor. While he might be her student by day, when night comes, he becomes the teacher.
Likes: I really liked the characters--both Eden and Mason, and Becca and Connor. They worked well together and there was definitely some wicked chemistry going on. The story progresses at a good pace and the timeline works really well. Eden's internal dialogue as well as her misgivings help to balance her new bad girl status against the desire to maintain some sort of teacher-student decorum. Mace is a strong character and downright sexy in his cocky Adonis-ness. And their interactions--teacher/student, everyday life, romantic bits--all work well.
Dislikes: This isn't a dislike, exactly, but Mason seemed far too mature (worldly) for his age and life experiences and I had a hard time accepting his age. Given what we know of Eden, I can understand/picture her level of experience, but Mason's seemed to far exceed his biological age (I'd expect it more from someone 5-10 years older).
If you like your romances with a touch of the taboo, then give WICKED CHEMISTRY a read. And as the authors point out, all characters are 18 or older, making them consenting adults.
