Rating: 3 stars out of 5
Chemistry major Kelly Hendrick has lusted after his analytical chemistry professor Simon Randall for a several semesters. They share common interests in reading, fencing, and, of course, their chosen career field.
Now several semesters past being Dr. Randall’s student, Kelly finally dares to cross the line and pursue his attraction to the professor. He finds the feeling reciprocated, but there are deep, more than human secrets in Kelly’s life.
An assault on Simon forces Kelly to confront the idea that Simon needs to know more if they’re going to be together. Can Kelly own up to non-human genetics and still maintain his growing relationship with Simon?
This was an enjoyable story. Simon has continued to try and keep Kelly at arm’s length in order to keep any feelings he may have at bay. Kelly embraces his friendship with Simon and is willing to let that be all they have if Simon refuses to have more.
I felt as though I was watching this story from a distance and didn’t really connect with the characters. Kelly struggles with the reality that he would need to tell Simon about his true nature but isn’t sure when that would be the right time. Simon doesn’t put up too much resistance once Kelly really makes a move once he isn’t his student anymore.
The cover art by Written Ink Designs is nice and works well for this story.
