Summary

It all started with a broken classroom heater....

Graduate school prepares you for many things - the rigor of academic life, how to pull consecutive all-nighters, and living off a meager stipend without having to be roommates with cockroaches. 

Elle Graft might have made it through six years of graduate school, but she's not convinced she'll survive her first position as an Assistant Professor. Because for all she learned, graduate school never prepared her for dealing with a student crush.

Love this series and love the audiobook

This is one of my favorite series of all time. It’s always nice to hear the audiobook after reading the book because you get a fresh perspective from the narrator. Angela Dawe knocked this out of the park. I look forward to listening to the rest of the series.

Terrific narration!

I'd not read anything by Eliza and still have The Woman in 3B in my Kindle. But when I saw that she'd hired the "legendary" Angela Dawe to narrate this book I had to pause everything else and listen to it. Dawe and Abby Craden are my favorite narrators and sadly, we only have a handful of Dawe-narrated lesfic books to enjoy. In the beginning I was completely hooked. It was funny and you understood and empathized with Assistant Professor Elle Graft's fascination with Hunter, a beautiful, decade-younger nursing student taking her English class. Stories about teacher/student relationships tend to make me feel a bit uncomfortable since I once taught high school, but this was college and Hunter was of legal age. And - importantly - there was nothing unprofessional that occurred while Hunter was in her class. All good. My issue with the story came into play in the second half - once the two got together. The sexual chemistry was off the charts but you would have thought it was Elle who was the one a decade younger. She was a hot mess and I almost felt sorry for Hunter that Elle was her first. It's understandable that Elle was uncomfortable with the age difference initially (though like I said - Hunter was the more mature of the two) but she beat that horse to death. And then she was so damn wishy-washy and made some really terrible decisions. One of these involved someone who reappears from her past and that's pretty much when the story lost much of its appeal. There were good things about it. I liked Hunter, Elle's friends, and it was a very steamy read. Ultimately, though, Elle was a bit too flawed for me to root for her very much. There were also some grammatical errors that you don't often catch on audio but stood out - problematic when Elle is supposed to be an English professor. This gets 4 stars because of Angela Dawe - who always elevates a work. Dawe doesn't just read, but performs. Each character has their own distinct voice and I especially liked Hunter's. And Dawe's narration of the love scenes? Lord have mercy. This is the first of a series that many in FB groups have said that they love. I may give the second one a go - especially if Dawe narrates it. But I won't be rushing out to do it.

The Damn Heater

A great opening with a terrific closing and even brilliant epilogue. A found a new favorite author and that is Eliza with a combination with Dawe voice.
