❛Shhh... take it like a good student❜ Now entering her second year of college, Marianna Mor felt a sense of stagnancy engulf her life. The constant cycle of studies and academics, mediocre frat boys, and overbearing parental expectation has only heightened Marie's desire for her darkest secrets. Secrets she doesn't share with anyone. Secrets that involve a dominant man with a belt one hand and the other hand wrapped around her throat. With a last-minute addition to her semester coursework, Marie's life clashes with that of Professor Nathaniel Dameron. With a Ph.D. in abnormal psychology, Professor Dameron has made a life's work of studying the deepest and darkest corners of the human mind. World-renowned and respected for his insights, these illicit ideas follow him to his personal life behind closed doors and in the bedroom. He's exactly who Marie needs, as she to him. Enticed by the forbidden nature of their relationship, the two are in for a dangerous game.
