Book Blurb

Yoison is a little freaked out on his first day of practice teaching in Mr. O'Connor's social studies class. He can't believe some of the toughs in this school--and when a big bad biker steps into the classroom, greeted enthusiastically by all the students, Yoison is surprised to find out this dude is Mr. O'Connor. His students call him Rut, and he's unlike any teacher Yoison's ever worked with. For starters, no other teacher has turned Yoison on quite like this! It's high school all over again.

Book Review

Simmering with sexual tension from the outset, this story opens with Yoison starting his first day of practice teaching at a new school, and culminates in an extremely erotic encounter in the classroom. While it would be fair to say that the initial attraction between the protagonists is purely physical, we are at least left with the feeling that the relationship will grow into something deeper.

Yoison arrives in Mr. O’Connor’s classroom taut with nerves. When a leather-clad biker strides in, he is thrown into even greater confusion, first by the realization that this is actually Rut O’Connor himself, and then by his own immediate and violent reaction to him. Yoison hasn’t wanted anyone so much since high school, and if Rut’s knowing glances are any indicator, he feels the same.

Rut may be irresistibly sexy, but he’s also a great teacher. He is able to interact with the students on their own level, his charisma earning both their respect and their participation in his classes. Moreover, as Yoison discovers once school has ended and the students gone home, Rut has more inventive uses for his desk than merely addressing a class from behind it.

Though this is essentially a piece of erotica, the story does carry a deeper message. We shouldn’t make assumptions about people because of the way they look, or shun them for being different. In short, if you’re after a red-hot read, and like your man-on-man action uncomplicated and to the point, this story could be for you.
