Summary

Everyone knows NOT to discuss how to raise children. The Men of the North have been living in exile for centuries, raising their boys without the influence of women. Now an experiment will bring girls and boys together in a new school with children and teachers from each side of the border. But how can two teachers work together when they don't agree on anything? 

Sparks fly in this clash of cultures when Archer Rex objects to Kya Rae's meditation "shit" that will surely turn his boys into wusses. He wants the kids to learn how to hunt and fight instead. Contains mature themes.

A refreshing change of pace!

Fun and sexy with an interesting and surprising point of view. Narration is excellent. Looking forward to more from this author. Definitely worth a credit!

UNSURE!!!!

Book 3 in this series is about Kya and Archer. Christina nominates her best friend/old roommate Kya Rae to co-teach the experimental school with Archer. Kya and Archer fight and disagree constantly about how to teach the kids. Although it takes a longgggg time, they end up falling in love.

I had a really hard time deciding how I felt about this book. For me, it was hard to overcome the misogyny. I normally like bickering, but it's just so woven in with gender roles that it bothers me. But to be fair, this entire series is about gender roles so it's not really fair to judge it when that's the entire premise, right? I'm unsure. Also, I don't like spanking and this book has one scene with spanking (it wasn't terrible, but I just personally struggle with that in regard to children and even with consenting adults. I can even get on board with other BDSM stuff, but spanking always annoys me - PS there is no BDSM in this book. I was just explaining that it's just a weird thing that seriously puts me off). So perhaps if that doesn't bother you, this book won't be so hard to digest for you.

I do like how Archer clearly shows that he cares and likes Kya - despite some misogyny.

Overall, this book frustrated me, gave me lots of angst (toward the end after Kya realized she loves him, but maybe it's too late), and then I was relieved and happy when they end up together. So maybe that means it's a good book? Again, I'm just so unsure.

Give it a try! Find out for yourself. For me, I'm on to Book 4.

I have read all three audio books now....

The writing is ok, the story is ok but it's really an UG...Woman..SEX...book... Woman society, advanced, peaceable but facing extinction from not having men with good swimmers...
Male society....they get boy cast offs from the women in exchange for good sperm as they live a more natural life, sans women...but it's more neanderthal....

A sensible stab at trying to bridge the gap, one hook up at a time....

Fairly predictable but not an awful way to spend a few hours...

Enjoyed it, but the 1st books were better

Any additional comments?

I really looked forward to hearing Archer and Kya's story. I really liked these characters in the 1st two books. But the story seemed to drag a bit. I also agree with another reviewer that the spanking of one of the students was somewhat cringeworthy. However, it was not enough to turn me off from the book completely. All in all, I still look forward to reading the next two books, "The Seducer" and "The Warrior." I think that Elin Peer has done a pretty good job and the narrators were very good.

Loved the first two, hated this one

I could not get past the spanking the little girl. I already was not liking this one like I loved the first two.

Heroine is horrible

Archer is an angel from heaven but Kya is just a disaster. WE GET IT. YOU’RE A MODERN WOMAN. LETS MOVE ON. Where Archer is open and communicative and slowly becomes more and more welcoming to new ways of thinking, Kya is seriously stuck in her ways and shows very little in the way of compromise. I should say that I don’t agree with people complaining that Archer spanks a kid—not a big deal in my opinion.
