Summary

I never meant to fall in love with my professor. But it’s too late to turn around now. 

You see, our story is only beginning. There are just two simple things I need to focus on:

  1. Getting James to take me back, and 
  2. Making sure no one finds out about our affair. 

Spoiler alert: I’m going to do the first one. But the second thing? I just hope to God that this love is the real deal because I’m pretty sure I’m about to be kicked out of school.

I cannot get enough of this series

After reading this book and the others in the hunted series I cannot get enough. Entirely new way to experience the story of James and Penny. A truly addictive story. Narrated fantastically by Meghan Crawford.

Great next installment in this forbidden love!

Addiction gives us another chapter of Penny and James that’s just as addictive as the first! They go through the trials of their relationship becoming public and what that will mean for them. Through the story James really stands up for Penny’s integrity and I love him even more for it. When he has to choose to do what’s right or what is best for him personally he ultimately puts their relationship first without even thinking.

Meghan Crawford continues to do fantastic narrating both views. There are definitely some secrets revealed, some super sexy scenes and some moments that make you laugh out loud.

It got a lot better

Yes I went on to the second book despite almost not finishing the first. Penny wasn't as fickle and stupid in this one. Although I kept expecting her to screw up. She's just doesn't seem to be a very strong character. She's an obsessive overthinker and it is so frustrating. Now...on to the next book!! Because I'm totally crushing on Professor Hunter!!

Better than Book One

I liked this book better than book one. I thought Megan’s performance was spot on. I’m not so sure I like James and the way he treats Penny. Sometimes he seems too controlling that it comes across as abuse. I kind of like Tyler much better, but we’ll see what happens with the other books. Brendan seems nice as well.

Drama

This book is extremely emotionally charged. So be prepared for a wild ride on that emotional roller coaster, but the ride is so worth it to get to the ending!! This book doesn’t have an epic cliffhanger, but leaves it open to where you do want to continue their story!

Trashy in a good way I guess

So I’ve listened to the first and second book and I’m impressed. As a book the novel makes me swoon, and a couple years ago I would have been fantasizing about sleeping with my professor.

I just want to say though, that Professor Hunter, were he real, would be a predator. I like the trashiness of the novel, so long as it stays in the novel. To the young girls reading this, if you’re under 25 and dating someone 7 years older than you, please super asses why this man is dating someone so much younger than him, and make sure you’re staying safe 💜

Good story, narrator leaves much to be desired.

Not only does she sound too young to play Penny, she doesn’t change her voice enough to decipher which character is talking. Loving the series though!

love this series The Hunted

it's a must read series. I have read the books in Kindle and bought them to read again. Great story but has twisted plots!

good sequel

after the first book, this was a great followup. However I would have liked to hear more clearly about what James' actual addiction is. this book kind of leaves you guessing what the addiction is. are they just addicted to each other? but what about James' past addictions. were they romances? sex? drugs? the book wasn't clear on that.
