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.
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.
UGGGGGGGHHHHHH this book. It just punches me right in the ovaries. It manages to be childhood sweethearts, neighbors to lovers, friends to lovers, and enemies to lovers ALL AT ONCE. And also mistaken identities! Who doesn’t love that?! (I can tell who does does love that – me!)
I liked Asha as a side character in Mister Romance, but I love her SO MUCH MORE getting to know deeper into who she is (and all her secret fears and flaws) in Professor Feelgood. Also, every guy who showed up in the first part of the book I found myself going “Is that Professor Feelgood? Is that him? How about him?” And for a while I was convinced it had to be Toby!! Haha. The reality is so much more delicious than I ever could have imagined. His character is just great – he says he’s a recovering asshole and boy, he really shows it – and his relationship with Asha is just – ugh. I do wish there’d been a little more around them moving past their history and resuming their friendship, because that part felt just a bit rushed. And then the final reveal and the ending of this book – I can’t even words, I only melt. Let’s just say I want all of the romance heroes in this series. I want to keep them in my pockets where I will feed them candy and they can spout romantic things at me. Gush.
This is the second book in the Masters of Love series, and while I can technically be read as a stand alone I really recommend you read book 1, Mister Romance, first. There are definitely spoilers for Mister Romance in this book, but you don’t 100% HAVE TO have read it to get the full enjoyment from Professor Feelgood. Also, I can NOT WAIT for the next book in this series, which will be called Doctor Love and be told from Toby’s POV!
