A LOT has been going on with me lately (some not so good, but I’m optimistic about it) so I didn’t really update the blog. Hopefully that will change soon!
Today I’m going to review Leisa Rayven’s newest release, Professor Feelgood. I received an ARC of the book to read before the release day, in exchange of an honest opinion. I hope you guys enjoy my review and the post!
Ambitious book editor Asha Tate is a hopeless romantic. Despite her mediocre track record with men, she believes in swooning, sighing, and the everlasting love of true soul mates. Sure, sex is okay, but she’s not someone who’s ever been driven by her animal urges.
When Asha stumbles upon the scorching hot Instagram feed of someone calling himself Professor Feelgood, she falls in lust for the first time. Not only is she left panting over the professor’s insane body, but his angst-filled poetry about losing his one true love speaks straight to her soul.
Desperately in need of a bestseller for her struggling publishing company, Asha knows the professor’s potential to sell to his millions of loyal followers could be the lifeline her bosses need. However, the ink is barely dry on a book deal before she realizes she’s made a terrible mistake. Sure, the professor is incredibly talented and sexier than any man has a right to be, but the man behind the persona isn’t at all who she pictured. In real life, he’s intense, arrogant and infuriating, and his uncanny ability to rub her the wrong way turns her dream project into a total nightmare.
Knowing that the professor is everything she doesn’t want in a man should help Asha ignore her occasional urges to mount him, but she quickly learns that explosive, unwanted chemistry can make even smart people do stupid things.
Don’t miss this sexy new standalone from the international bestselling author of Bad Romeo and Broken Juliet.
Professor Feelgood is Leisa’s Rayven first release in about a year and a half and I have to say the wait was so worth it!!!
I love what she created and the way Jacob and Asha’s story was told. Even though I have been waiting a long time for this book , I haven’t read the synopsis before starting it, so the whole story was such a great surprise!
Jacob’s words, which are essentially Leisa’s words, are so incredibly meaningful. I could definitely feel the essence of this character. This complex, beautiful, angry and hurt character Leisa created and with whom I fell in love with.
We’ve seen Asha before in Mr. Romance, but having her own story, in which she could have her own voice, made me connect so much more with her. She’s so real and relatable and her tale of love and redemption is very believable. Which definitely makes up for a great book, because for me to love a story I have to believe in it!
As I mentioned before, this book was a surprise after another. Every page I turned made me want to read more and also to slow down my reading speed (which is VERY fast). All because I didn’t want it to end too soon. And reading a book that just makes us smile and swoon like I did reading this one, is not only very satisfying, but incredibly fullfiling.
Professor Feelgood deals with atemporal, and yet very actual, subjects, such as unrequited love, social media, dating in this new era and just the good ole love story. And I LOVE all of that. It’s so much easier to connect with a story and characters we can relate to.
As usual I love Leisa’s sense of humor and I have to say she was in rare form with this one! I caught myself laughing out loud for reals while reading this book.
Professor Feelgood is not only a romance with a convincing love story, but it’s also great fun! A true feel-good book! This book proves there’s no need for too much drama and overly complicated plotlines. Specially when you have great writing, sizzling and palpable chemistry between the main characters and a plotline that feels very real.
There were some things I wish there were more in the book, but even so, I call Professor Feelgood a success!
I love a good slow-burn romance book and I really like that the characters had the time to work on their issues, to truly get to know each other and to fall in love. Enough that we have an actual story. The fact that it wasn’t filled with sex from the beginning made it even more refreshing to me.
Also, I love all the Max cameos in the story. They just added to the fun (Leisa, I can never get enough of Max and his hate for pineapple pizza lol).
I didn’t want the book to end so soon (and it’s not a short story) and I wouldn’t complain about more of Jacob and Asha. Which, again, are signs of a good book in my opinion, because Leisa made it hard to let go of these characters and their story.
It’s an absolute joy to see Leisa’s maturing her writing and mastering her craft. Every new release of hers she shows she keeps growing and improving. Again, signs of a great writer and author! We can see she cares not only with her readers, but also with her characters as well. And for that we have to thank her!
Now I can’t wait for Doctor Love and to see what more Leisa have in storage for us. I will wait as long as she gets to write her books, but I really hope it doesn’t take long because I’ve missed her writing!
