The beautiful man from the club is my new professor... But he wasn’t when he kissed me.

Olivia Barclay has never set foot in a strip club. She’s definitely not a girl who would dare seize the stage. But when she learns her ‘perfect’ boyfriend has been cheating, she lets loose for the first time.

From the moment Sawyer rescues her in the parking lot at Velvet’s, Olivia realizes he’s what she’s been missing. The way he touches her sets her on fire. But one mistake becomes two when she learns Sawyer isn’t only the passionate, mysterious man she stayed up all night with...

He’s her new professor.

Crave is a forbidden student/professor romance and book #1 in the Off The Limits series. Forbidden romances is one of my favorite tropes! And I was so happy when I heard that Piper Lawson's latest release was going to be a forbidden romance! I love Piper Lawson's work! Personally, from the work I read so far, I find her novels 'feel good reads'. And I easily got pulled into the story; her storylines flows effortlessly. Just like her other novels, I got hooked from the first few pages!! Mainly navigated from the heroine, Olivia's perspective. When they first gazed at each other, an instant attraction occurred between Olivia and Sawyer. But there's this one *major* problem; Olivia is a college/uni student and Sawyer is her professor. Of course, when they first met Olivia and Sawyer wasn't aware of this. Hence, Sawyer did a 180 degree change in his behavior towards Olivia, namely becoming a j*rk. Now, they are in a sticky and complicated situation. Because, there's this ever so present heavy, intense and thick energy between them. Olivia is feeling lost; nothing is going according to plan in her life. To the outside world, it can be seen that she has an easy life, but that's far from the truth. After so many years of blood, sweat and tears Olivia has given up ballet, realizing that it's not her dream any more; she's lacking passion. She had enough with people, namely her parents telling her what to do with her life. Olivia wants to pave her way. To find her own direction in life not the one her parents set out for her, molding her into a certain way to their liking. Ahh, Sawyer! After seeing Sawyer and Olivia's interactions in the first couple of chapters, I swooned, Sawyer immediately had my heart. Definitely adding him to my "swoon worthy characters' list"! Sawyer is a smooth talker; he said the right things and some of his interactions with Olivia would make your heart flutter. Mine did! (No wonder Olivia couldn't survive his charms.) Sawyer is a man with many secrets, there's more to him than meets they eye. And I'm so curious to read more about him in the next installments! To learn more about his back story. And let's not forget the "private lessons" he taught Olivia, it was definitely spicy! (You might need a tall glass of water while reading these chapters) He wants her to reach her full potential, and his approach did get on Olivia's nerves, hence sometimes they were in a heated argument. My goodness!! The aquarium scene was so steamy! The ending though!!!! Need to read book #2 soon! **This is a voluntary review

Book in the new Off Limits series by Piper Lawson. This forbidden romance between Olivia and Sawyer was so much fun to start. Olivia is dared to dance at a strip club and she meets a man that sets her skin on fire. She didn’t think that she would see him again until she went into class and he was there and her professor. The chemistry between Olivia and Sawyer was so intense. Loved watching the start of their relationship and the consequences that could arise from them being in this relationship. Be prepared for the cliffhanger but the next book will be out soon and I am ready for it.

A steamy professor/student read. Olivia is the brittle college junior who acts out when she sees her boyfriend of three years cheating on her twice in less than 24 hours. She’s a poor little rich girl who shatters and so it’s up on the stage for a bendy performance at the strip club with Sawyer watching. It ends in a wet T-shirt, naturally. I worry about Sawyer’s deductive abilities as Olivia puts on the Russell University hoodie in front of him and he can’t figure out she’s a student there. Wonder about this teaching abilities. Well, his teaching abilities between the sheets are just fine as he’s had a lot of practice. A steamy read with s brittle girl and her much older professor. Purchased.
