Erin has a problem. She’s attracted to one of her students.
Maybe it was the long chats after class or the flirty looks Cassia gave her, but Erin can’t take it anymore. She has to make her move. Except Cassia doesn’t show for their normal after-hours chat. With the semester at an end, Erin thinks it’s all over until she hears a knock at her door.
She could be fired if anyone finds out.
Forbidden fruit tastes so good.

I liked that this one had a bit of a back-story to it. You can tell that there are true feelings and friendship between Cassia and Erin. The forbidden fruit for so long Erin must feel like all her wishes have come true when Cassia arrives late to her office. It was the perfect time for Cassia to seduce her professor though as it’s the last point (or almost last point give or take a few hours) that they would be considered teacher and student. But I think that on some level they still liked the fact that it would be something naughty that they would be doing. I mean Cassia does say she made a bet with herself that she could get Erin to scream for her and well if she wants her to scream (which she does) she knows that there could be a possibility that someone could hear her.
I liked that you get to see Erin in her work environment first, going through the stages of ‘not caring’ whether or not Cassia turns up. You can see her trying to convince herself that it was all in her head and that she shouldn’t be thinking so much about a student. Just makes it that much more interesting to see her get all flustered when Cassia then does turn up.
Even though Erin is the more mature one you can see her submit quite quickly to Cassia. I think its almost because she can’t believe it is happening and doesn’t want to do anything to scare her off. Its only after she ‘gets off’ that she comes into her own a bit to take control and show Cassia how much she really likes her.
You can see that this would be the start of something between them, not just a one time thing, as its been brewing for some time and they do seem to care for each other. They had the friendship first along with the underlying tension of forbidden passion, which just meant when they finally came together (no pun intended) they would be igniting something hot and fun for them.
