Dark Notes by Pam Godwin
Forbidden Romance: Student Teacher
Release Date: April 6, 2016
Rating: 5 stars
This is hands down, the best student/teacher – forbidden romance I have ever read. THE FEELS I experienced when reading this brought chills down my spine. Gah, everything about it is emotional, sweet, tender, dark, dirty, and gritty. How is it that I never read anything by this author before??? This is beyond me but I will certainly be buying more of her books in the future. This is a MUST READ for 2016.
The book follows the relationship between Emeric (teacher) and Ivory (student) as they navigate how to get by in their forbidden relationship without getting caught, and controlling the horrible past that Ivory had endured. Ivory is poor. But when her dad passed away he left her with a gift that changed her life forever- the gift of going to a prestigious high school that offers music classes for exceptional musicians in the making. It is there that she meets Emeric (when she is only 17 years old). Emeric is a total alpha male with a very dominant side. But he had been burned in the past so he doesn’t expect to fall for someone s quickly and easily- especially his student. But there is something about Ivory that draws him in. Is it the fact that she needs protection from the horrible abuse she endures? Maybe. Either way, he can’t stay away from her even though their relationship is illegal and can end both of their careers…
Once again, this is an amazing novel that must be read this year. There is so much going on in the story from painful abuse to extremely hot sex scenes that will leave readers craving an Emeric in their life. I loved the characters in this book. Emeric is not a mean dominant man rather, he is the type of man that loves deep and will protect those he loves until his last breath. Ivory is a sheltered girl who has endured too much abuse (both physically and sexually) at such a young age. But her heart still beats and she is still capable of love. The plot in this novel is well rounded. There isn’t too much drama which is a good thing, but readers will feel like they need to hang on the edge of their seats. Is there an HEA? You’ll have to read to find out. But readers, you WONT be disappointed.
