Series: Fallen Men

Author: Giana Darling
Check it Out: Goodreads

He was eighteen.
The heir to a notorious, criminal MC.
And my student.

There was no way I could get involved.
No way I could stay involved.
Then, no way I could get out alive.

An MC student/teacher romance.

MY feelings

I’ve been seeing this on Goodreads for so long and I’ve finally given in and read it. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would! I’m not usually a fan of teacher/student romances, but this one was an addicting read. Maybe it was the MC behind the story that made it that way.

From the first time they met face to face, they had explosive chemistry. They couldn’t get enough of each other and their relationship happened so easily. Yes, this is an age gap and I know that I shouldn’t say that I was rooting for a 18 year old student and 26 year old teacher, but I was and have no shame about it. If you’ve read it, then you know King showed that he was all man in a few ways.

The back and forth on Cress’s end did get on my nerves a bit. She would constantly give into King but immediately push back after. Or he would only find out how she felt about him by overhearing her with her friends or when she was trying to get a girl to back off King. He was so forthcoming with what he wanted from her and what he saw in her. I just wish she could have given him the same thing just as easily.

“Because I fuckin’ love you enough to tear the world apart if it wrongs you, if it causes even a minute of misery for my girl with the whiskey eyes. Never felt this way about anything and I don’t want to ever again.”

The relationship between the Fallen MC men was a good one. I love the loyalty and how they extended care to Cress. I’m hoping that we get to see a lot of them find their old ladies.

All in all, this was a fast paced and quite steamy read. The next book is about Zeus and I’m super excited to read it.

  1. This truly does sound good, but I don’t know that I could get past the student-teacher aspect. I just keep thinking what if it was my kid that was the 18 year old? Yeah, no. But if it was after that kid had left high school, I might have been able to read it. I’m glad it worked for you!


  2. I am not a fan of the teacher/student trope but if done well I can enjoy it. And I have to say that Giana Darling did a wonderful job with this book. I have found through reading the whole series, that its her writing. She just writes such compelling books that just pull you in so quickly.

    Great review.


  3. I have been hearing about this series everywhere. I should definitely pick it up since you reviewed my main concerns and they don’t sound so concerning.
