What's a girl to do when a man who's countless shades of wrong feels oh-so-right?

Ambitious book editor Asha Tate is a hopeless romantic. Despite her mediocre track record with men, she believes in swooning, sighing, and the everlasting love of true soul mates. Sure, sex is okay, but she’s not someone who’s ever been driven by her animal urges.

Until now.

When Asha stumbles upon the scorching hot Instagram feed of someone calling himself Professor Feelgood, she falls in lust for the first time. Not only is she left panting over photos of the professor’s insane body, but his angst-filled poetry about losing his one true love speaks straight to her soul. 

Desperately in need of a bestseller for her struggling publishing company, Asha knows the professor’s potential to sell to his millions of loyal followers could be the lifeline her bosses need. However, the ink is barely dry on a book deal before she realizes she’s made a terrible mistake. Sure, the professor is incredibly talented and sexier than any man has a right to be, but the man behind the persona isn’t at all who she pictured. In real life, he’s intense, arrogant and infuriating, and his uncanny ability to rub her the wrong way turns her dream project into a total nightmare.

Knowing that the professor is everything she doesn’t want in a man should help Asha ignore her occasional urges to mount him, but she quickly learns that explosive, unwanted chemistry can make even smart people do stupid things.

Don't miss this sexy new standalone from the international bestselling author of Bad Romeo!

Asha is a hopeless romantic. She's waiting for her happily ever after. But it's not looking all that good at the moment - especially considering the little problem she thinks she has in the bedroom.
That's why she needs to concentrate on getting that promotion at work. The little publishing house she works for as an editor needs her to bring in a future bestseller - or else boob-ogling-idiot Devin will get the job.
After going through a million scripts, she remembers her addiction to a certain Instagram profile. Professor Feelgood. His face has never been on a picture, but his heart is in his posts and poems. His heart and his soul and his heartbreak. Asha feels like a little One Direction fangirl every time she opens Instagram.
Now she only has to convince a stranger to sign with her company ....
Getting him to sign with her might be do-able ... but that's only the 'beginning' of her story with the Professor!
(A little Spoiler - I'll write it in white - so just move your finger or mouse over the next line if you want to know more about Asha's new guy! But you shouldn't, because who he is is a bit of a surprise/mystery/secret and you should read it in the book! Also - something I won't mention in my spoiler, but there will be a WTF moment that we didn't see coming. Well, I never see any of those moments coming, but other people do - but this one! LOL!)
The Professor is not really the stranger that Asha thinks he is. She might have met him before. Or rather, she might have been his best friend since they were three years old!!!!! And after highschool they lost touch because they kind of hated each other after things happened.

What will happen to Asha and the Professor?

Yay!!! Finally book #2 in this adorable series.
I did a re-read of Mister Romance while waiting for this book to arrive. Asha was in there a lot and I already adored her in her sister's book.
And now she gets her own happily ever after. Even if it might take her a long while to really get there with our Professor .....

Mystery Guy!

Spoiler Alert: He's not really a professor. But that's all I'm telling you about him! ☺

He's not really all that present during the first part of the book. We only hear about him. His Instagram posts. His sexy pictures and even sexier words.
And we love him. He's this gorgeous heartbroken soul who's just waiting for the right girl to come along and heal him. Yup. That'll be us - ok... it'll be Asha. ☺

But once they meet to work on his book ... well ... it's NOT going to be easy to get that book written together. There might be some anger and some hate ... but there's also a lot of sparkage & mega-chemistry and lots of fight-and-argue-foreplay-moments! Phew!

I LOVED this book. It was so funny and adorable and sexy and just plain entertaining!
Perfect! Nothing more to say! #HashtagPleaseNetflixComeAndMakeAMovieOutOfThis

I also mega-adored Asha's friend Joanna - she's hilarious!!!!! She'll hopefully be the star of the next book - DOCTOR LOVE! Can't wait to get my hands on that one!

PROFESSOR FEELGOOD was the most adorable and funny and moving love story! ... run to your nearest amazon for your own Professor - this one is MINE!

If I had to name some tiny little things that bothered me?
Their age. They're both 24 years old and all through the book they felt more like 34 to me. Both of them, but especially the Professor. Didn't hurt the story or the book, but maybe they could've been a bit older?
Another thing... I missed the sexiness a bit. I don't know why, but I wanted it a bit sexier. We have this mega-sparkage and sexy talk all through the book - and I loved that. But the real sexiness is missing a bit. It came too late. The book was almost over before we even kiss. Which doesn't make the book bad in any way - I still LOOOVED it. Just thought I should mention it!

ARC received for an honest review

Woohoo a new book from Leisa Rayven, let me at it!

It has been a while since I read Mister Romance, so I didn't remember Asha at all, and for some reason, I thought Professor Feelgood was going to be somehow attached to Max / Mr Romance, not his love Eden (she is Asha's sister).

And that was not where the surprises ended.

I was completely hooked on this book from the first words.   I mean, who hasn't drooled over some guy/girls and wanted to really know them.  Maybe not write a book with them, but know them.

And here the mysteries all start.  Why does Asha have such a connection with a nameless, faceless guy on a screen.

Heck, I had a crush on him just reading about him!

Asha and the Professor have such chemistry - not always heart eyes though. Oh boy, can you feel the pheremones flying across the room whenever they are together. If they say fighting is foreplay, this is outright war.

But we don't really get the sexy times, which this old perv was bummed about!

And then, just when you think you know where this story is going, BAM - Ms Rayven throws another curveball our way that had me all

I sure as sh!t didn't see that coming.

I just absolutely loved this book. It is adorable, and funny, and frustrating and just... sigh everything.

I adored getting to see more of Max and Eden, and have a bit of a girl crush on Asha's friend Joanna.  I hope she is the leading lady of the next book, Doctor Love.

I need it. Now. Right This Second.  Please don't make me wait too long Ms Rayven.

Writing has always been a passion for Leisa, and even though she originally intended to be an actress, it wasn’t long into her time at drama school that she began writing plays.
Those plays were bad. Very bad. Well, her friends thought they were good, but that’s because they were always cast in them and any opportunity to be on stage was met with an obnoxious amount of enthusiasm.
Since then, she’s honed her craft, and several of her plays have been produced and toured throughout Australia.
These days, playwriting has given way to fiction writing, and Leisa’s debut novel, BAD ROMEO, was published through Macmillan New York in December 2014. The sequel, BROKEN JULIET was released in April 2015, and the final book in Leisa’s Starcrossed series, WICKED HEART, will hit bookstores and kindles on May 3rd, 2016.
The Starcrossed series has gained hordes of passionate fans all over the world, and the books have now been translated into eight foreign languages. Bad Romeo and Broken Juliet have also featured on international best seller lists in Brazil and Germany.
Leisa Rayven lives in Australia with her husband, two little boys, three cats, and a kangaroo named Howard.
(Howard may or may not be her imaginary marsupial friend. Everyone should have one.)
