Book Review: 'Professor with Benefits' by Mickey Miller
Author Mickey Miller is the handsome young author of sixteen romance with erotic books. His books are very popular with the Chick Lit audience and he seems to have written enough variety of themes to keep his devotees in line for more.
Mickey’s themes are all ‘heat and heart’ – and a bit of forbidden territory as he displays in this book about professor/student affairs. His plot outline is fairly complete – ‘Rose - I'm studying to be a sex therapist, and I haven't even had sex yet. Which is why I decide that Professor Hanks is going to be the one to take my virginity. I want Professor Hanks to be my dom. Hung Hanks. That's what they call him. All the students know Professor Hanks' reputation since he grew up in Blackwell. Small town high school football star turned Harvard Ph.D. Only in town to care for his dying mother. Too good for 'local' girls. I've done my research, and he's the perfect candidate for what I want. Hot, smart, dominant. Cole Hanks - Sixty Days. That's all she wants from me. Not even a full semester. Rose Allison wants me to be her dom for two months, and then she's done with me. She wants me to show her how to be the perfect little submissive and then move on. But the thing is, sixty days isn't nearly enough for me. Once I get started, I have to finish her. There's just one big problem. She's a student. I'm her professor. Our romance isn't exactly in line with school policy. Sure, you've heard of student teacher romances before. Except this one has an ending no one saw coming. Not even me.’
As a friendly gesture Mickey introduces his stage and characters - ‘Welcome to the kinkiest small town in America: Blackwell. The story is set in a town called Blackwell hidden somewhere in the USA. This book is dedicated to anyone who has ever lived in a small town, however long or short that time. I’ve lived in a couple of them myself, and there is something special about a small town. Especially the romances that happen in a small town… Enjoy reading Romance’s first “Dom-Com,” a romantic comedy about a dominant man and his submissive. A professor and a student. Because sometimes that forbidden fruit tastes oh so delicious.’
Mickey’s writing style is steamy, naughty, and satisfying. It is clear why he is growing so popular with his followers. Grady Harp, May 18
