    You know what I love about this novel? It's the transformation. See here:From here:The whole nerdy look to something cool and hot with the glasses:And the splash of this:It's like that TV SHOW Beauty and the Geek. Yeah? Curios? Here's what I think of each novel:Absolute Beginners 5★ ReviewAbsolute Lovers 4.5★ ReviewThe Wilde Side 4.5★Surprise! Surprise! There's a third part and bonus on this novel. You may or may not need to proceed reading this one.I guess I could go on with my life without reading Julia’s side of the story. And even though I already had a sneak peek of her thoughts in Absolute Lovers, I’m still curious about her side of the story. Well, I thought this is more of a continuation, but yes, Julia’s side of the story. Silly me. It’s a part of her before the first time she got involve with Professor Stephen Worthington and although it was a repeat of some of the scenes on her side, I still felt the same while reading the rest of the book. I was like a little school girl waiting for the glimpses of the professor.Well, at least I get to know Julia a little bit more and got a deeper understanding of her character. Looking back on the novel, I appreciate her character growth and development and I just love her even more.**I received an ARC via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    I began the books and was surprised at how typical was the plot: a sex/love relationship between a student and her professor. Told by the professor/male side. Usually, I would have stopped reading at the first time they had sex together because even if the professor had already showed a fixation on her it still looked al ot like insta sex, but there was something about the characters that seemed alluring: the naive professor, who knows nothing about sex and you want to know why he is like he is, so closed up and off from social interaction; and the younger woman, who knows aht she wants sexually and how to get it and you wanna know more from this persona. But you keep reading and you realize:- the sex is gonna be spoon feed to you in an array of situations, not always coherent or believable- sometimes the male character seems stalker-ish, and he even jokes so to himself- the female character knows how to defend herself and kick a punch. Which comes in handy when the male goes neanderthal on her- the characters don't evolve. Ever. Plain as plain can be.When I was almost at the end of the first book I decided I didn't want to keep following this story. *Possible spoilers ahead* Now the lady doesn't want to talk to him? Now he is gonna do anything for her? Now they are gonna talk about their feelings when both only wanted sex (well, he seems to fall for her between fuckings) and find out bot are in love? And she is gonna see how great he is, how well she treats her, how great he is in and off the sack and acknowledge her feelings to him, right? And couldn't they see it before? Had they to go to the official "romantic plot" all this kind of books seem to have? Arrrrgh.

    This review was originally posted on Cocktails and BooksI don’t know how else to start this review other than to say I absolutely (no pun intended) loved this series. Honestly when I first started reading it I wasn’t sure how I would feel but after 1 chapter in I was hooked. I will get to this further in my review. This story is about Stephen, an awkward extremely shy and has limited experience with women – Stephen is a college Lit professor who wears a bow tie to his class and what can only be described as old man pants. His life is very orderly and he generally doesn’t change his habits to the frustration of his brother Matt. Stephen though is actually very good looking he just doesn’t know it. Julia is a student in Stephen’s class who is the complete opposite of Stephen. She is crass, rude (she calls Stephen by his first name which drives him crazy), extremely smart and dresses in his opinion like a freak, heavy black eyeliner, hair a mess, and clothes that are to raveling with holes everywhere. Julia is actually very pretty if she would just dress that way. Stephen notices Julia at first by her clothing but as the class progresses she does have some very insightful commentary around the different authors and books they are studying this of course drives Stephen crazy. They have a random meeting outside of class and one thing leads to another and end up back at Julia’s apartment and the story takes off from there. This is the first book I have read where the hero at the beginning is not the typical alpha male that I am use to and I really thought I was going to have a problem with that. Since the story is told in Stephen’s POV and because of it I really found myself somewhat relating to him. As his relationship with Julia progresses he starts to come more out of his shell to the point when he is with her the alpha male that I enjoy finally starts to come out. I loved watch that progression and found it extremely interesting – I also enjoyed Julia teach Stephen what it meant to be a good lover for her specifically and that was for me fun to read. So as you can imagine there is a lot of sex scenes through the two books and it actually does drive the story. The writer who from what I can tell this is her first series does a great job with the male POV and hinting at what is really going on with Julia. There is a great sub plot with Julia and Stephen’s friends that I would have liked to have explored more – the 4 friends were definitely the comic relief. We also get to see Julia change because of her relationship with Stephen and not because he wants her to but because she does. It is fantastic to see a women making choices because she wants to and not because it was expected. The ending by the way is fantastic and I wont give anything away but the pay off was great. This is a great story about finding love even when you think the person in front of you is not what you want – you may be surprised to find out they are exactly what you need. I think this book may not be for everyone but trust me give it a chance. I am really glad I did.Reviewer information can be found under the Tags section of the post on our site.

    Arc provided by NetGalleyWOW! This was just what I needed a new spin on a romance.Professor Student Romance- CheckStrong Female Lead- CheckSexy Male Lead- CheckBut then things get interesting. The female lead we have in Julia/Ms. Wilde is our wounded soul who needs to be shown the ways of real love. Then we have Stephen/Professor Worthington who is our shy, naive party who does not see how lonely he is or what his true worth is.As Stephen and Julia progress along the "sex buddy" path it becomes abundantly clear that there is more to there relationship. They are both clueless about the draw they feel for each other. As the story progresses little mysteries are unveiled and we watch as a true loving relationship is built. This book will make you laugh out loud, cringe at the awkward moments, swoon and even shed a few tears. Stephen is so sweet it really is fun watching him come out of his shell and become a swoon worthy alpha male. While Julia is wounded and just needs someone to make her feel loved an wanted.All in all a great read and I am glad I had both these novels together.

    The Absolute Novels is an amazing book. Julia and Stephen don't meet in the most ideal of circumstances.The relationship between Julia and Stephen (who are opposites in many ways) starts out as an arrangement. Neither one plans to feel any emotional attachment. Little by little, it's apparent that their relationship is more, much more. With some bumps along the way, it becomes one of the best things to happen to either one of them. I really love both characters. SJ is a fantastic writer and I look forward to reading her future books!

    ***ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review***Though I was hesitant at first because it was classified as Erotica, I was glad I requested this set. I loved that the book was told from Stephen's POV. I loved that he was this unsure, geeky but cute guy that needed someone to draw him out. I loved that both Stephen and Julia changed and grew because of how and what they became to each other. Absolute Beginners was the falling and it was an exhilarating and sexy ride. A great tale of finding love with the unlikeliest of people. Absolute Lovers was more of what happens after the "happily ever after" part in the tale. A little more day to day, a little less excitement but still romantic.

    "The Absolute Novels: Absolute Beginners and Absolute Lovers," by SJ Hooks, is sweet and sexy. Stephen isn't the typical romantic lead and the story is almost entirely from his point of view, which was refreshing. Things got a little too cutesy or sappy at times but I have a high tolerance for that if I'm enjoying the book, which I did.

    Book 1-I absolutely loved this first book….Teacher student books are my weakness. The whole forbiddeness of it all.I just love it.Usually you get the girl student that super shy and experience. But in this book it’s the opposite. The student was the one to teach the teacher. It was something different. I really was feeling everything about this book!Stephen and Julia was so hot together. Julia really knew how to handle Stephen. She was super patient with him and allowed him to slowly spread his wings. She was a great teacher to him in the bedroom. He was just super shy and reserved! And she just brought another side of Stephen out.He really let it all go with her.The relationship started off so casual. Julia called all the shots. Stephen was really fighting his feeling of what his body really wanted. Julia awakened Stephen in ways he never felt before. He really had a hard time letting go.But as time went on…. He really opened up to her and started to relax.I loved that.The ending of this book left me feeling like there was hope for both of them. Julia was opening herself up to Stephen and Stephen wanted to be with Julia as a couple and not just as a casual thing.I can’t wait to read book 2 to see how this story ends with big of them.Book 2-I LOVED this book. Stephen has come a long way and he truly has let go and embraced his new found sex life!…lolI felt the tables turn a bit in this book and Julia was the one that needed Stephan to be her rock and fight for them to be together. They were both so scared and both were in new territory with being in a relationship.This book picks up right from where book one ended. Almost makes me think why make 2 books at all. And just make 1 whole book.Anyway…There was a lot of growth from both characters in this second book. And I loved that. I loved how confident Stephen was becoming in the bedroom and in everyday situations.He really found himself.He just needed someone to show him and guide him.Julia had to let her guard down and let Stephen in. Which wasn’t very easy for her. She was burned by a past boyfriend that kind of shaped her to who she is today.I think that’s why Stephen was perfect for her. She was able to be in charge but at the same time open up and to him on her terms.And… I think that was the key for both of them.The sex was out of this work in this book! They were so hot together! I loved how they were so open with each other and just tried everything!There was a lot of funny little moments in this book that just had me laughing so loud!The sex shop visit and what happens after had me laughing! Omg that was so funny!And I loved Matt in both books! He was so funny too!I’m so glad I read this book! I will definitely be keeping my eye out for other books this author puts out!*ARC provided by Full Fathom Five via Netgalley*-Michelle

    The dynamic between Stephen and Julia make this a book you cannot put down. I love how opposites attract and it got my attention straight away. I love how unsure Stephen was to begin with and how things changed between them from annoyance to love. The changes and twists in these stories make the book one of my favourites. This is incredibly well written and I look forward to reading more works from SJ in the future. It ended perfectly in my opinion and I'm honestly desperate to read more of Sj's writing. Simply put a must read. I loved it.

    This is such an amazing story. Who has not thought of a teacher this way at one point in time. The chemistry between the two is written so wonderful that it draws you in. Cant wait to see what else this author gives us. Her words are heartfelt and with such emotion behind her words. Great Story

    ARC provided by Full Fathom Five Digital via NetGallet for an honest reviewAbsolute Beginners review:SO, let me tell you what drew me to read this ARC .... 'the twist' and I loved every second of it. The premise of the story, teacher student taboo romance, has been done SO many times that it just isn't fun any more to read. BUT, this story has THE TWIST ... The student, becomes the teacher! And boy did the teacher learn! The story was incredibly touching and heart-warming and just over all feel-good type of romance. It's also not your typical romance. You have to read between the lines to even know the romance is actually happening. But it's happening.The only drawback in the story is the things left unsaid and up in the air. Even though I know there is a sequel coming in June, THIS part seemed unfinished. The conflict at the end wasn't actually resolved well enough for me to be confident that all was forgiven. Because again, with this book, what is unsaid speaks higher volumes that what is actually said.OH, the gist ... lol, I almost forgot ... well, actually, the blurb pretty much tell you the plot without details. I wont go further and ruin the surprise for those of you that want to read this story.But know this, the premise is very unique. Our main characters are very well defined both inside and out. And our hero's development thru the story is like a butterfly growing from a cocoon! It's absolutely wonderful to read! Their chemistry is incredibly portrayed and the sex was not only touching when needed to be but SCORCHING HOT as well when the plot called for it.EXCELLENT JOB and I look forward to the continuation of Stephen and Julia's story soon! Absolute Lovers review:Well, my honest thoughts on this part of Stephen Worthington & Julia Wilde 's story is that it was unnecessary. The honest truth is that S.J. Hooks should have stopped at Absolute Beginners. THAT book told a story. It had events that meant something and added to the growth of our leads as a couple. Absolute Lovers had absolutely nothing except maybe the constant inner dialogue of Stephen on 'does she love me or loves me not...'I was incredibly disappointed in this half of their journey. The writing had no flare to it. It didn't hold my attention. The entire book read like a fluff piece. It took away from the greatness that is this story..or was.My advice to future readers...read Absolute Beginners because it's really really good. But stop there. Reading this story brought me down from the excitement I felt while reading Absolute Beginners. And it's not worth it. So as you can read, this story started really well but then it just went downhill really really fast with the second part :(

    Liked the first book a lot more than I did the second. The story had its really hot, really sweet moments but also its really stupid, cliche, eye-rolling moments. Especially the second book. I think that would've been better off if it was a short story after. There was a lot of unnecessary stuff going on. I'd be 80 pages in out of 200+ and be wondering "ok that problem is solved now what could possibly happen in the next 100+ pages." It kept going like that for most of the book. It seemed like problems appeared just for the sake of having a longer book. I liked the story in general I guess, but Absolute Lovers (the second book) really irritated me. Absolute Beginners 3/5 starsAbsolute Lovers 2/5 stars
