Matthew Blake is a medical student who’s trying to ignore his various roommates’ wild parties and get through his classes. He definitely needs training in the classroom, but not the bedroom, and he’s looking for someone who suits his very specific tastes.
Andrew Maynard is his instructor, a doctor at a prestigious British hospital. He’s bored, tired of the students who don’t seem to care what they’re doing, and ready for a change. He and Matthew are not supposed to be attracted to each other, but they can’t deny their undeniable chemistry. They come together with a heat that surprises them both. They face all of the difficulties that come with the teacher student dynamic, as well as unexpected doctor’s strikes, dealing with Andrew’s teenaged son, and hospital red tape. They also learn something about themselves in more intimate ways, as Andrew gives in happily to Matthew’s needs, offering up submission that leaves Matthew stunned and thrilled.
Andrew and Matthew learn to live, and love together, giving and taking in a relationship that leaves them both surprised at what they’re willing to do for love. Are they just what the doctor ordered?

Update after second read in April 2015: I added this book to my Fuck yeah, 5+ stars shelf because it just does it for me. Absolutely wonderful comfort read. I can’t wait to forget enough of it to read it again.
This was an absolutely delightful, low angst love story for those that just want to be carried away and get lost in the story. MC Matthew Blake is a diligent, serious, hard working medical student. MC Andrew Maynard is his fair, honest, attractive instructor. After weighing the pros and cons of an intimate relationship, the two decide to take the plunge and sleep together, consequences be damned, and we are treated to some SERIOUSLY hot D/s lite sex that will surely boil your blood.
The best part of this M/M romance was watching these two men fall in love. It was a romance lover’s dream. So sweet and perfect, calm and quiet. I enjoyed every moment and know I will be coming back to this book when I need something soft and soothing for my soul.
Highly recommended for all M/M romance readers!
