Human Behavior Professor, Sidney Rothman is no stranger to heartache at the hands of a younger woman. So when he meets the charming mocha-skinned beauty, he’s wary. Her sweet nature and natural tendency for submissive behavior overrule his fear, and Sidney decides to train her as a sub. Sutton takes to the lifestyle like a duck to water, but the one thing he didn’t bargain for was her ability to thaw the ice around his heart.
Sutton thrives on pressure. Handed a heavy load of responsibility from the time she was young, she’s fallen into the habit of pushing her feelings aside to get things done. After spending the past ten years focused on her career and family, she begins to notice how empty her condo feels and longs for something more. From the moment she meets Sidney, she’s instantly attracted to his intelligence and regal demeanor. When he introduces her to the BDSM lifestyle, her unexpected response surprises her. Good girls did not beg to be spanked. Or did they? Can she open up to Sidney and learn to live for herself before it’s too late?
Be Warned: mild BDSM
She felt heat fill her cheeks as she peered up at him and nodded. The thought of his decadent voice directing her actions made her panties wet. She’d practically taken to carrying an extra set of underwear around in her purse when they were together. There was something about him that kept her in a constant state of arousal. She had never been able to put her finger on the reason before, but now she might have an idea. She’d always liked a man who made her feel safe and well cared for. Where she’d grown up that was what made a man a man. Sure some girls didn’t like the old fashioned and at times domineering type, but she’d chalked up that to city girl versus country. She took a hasty swallow of her wine before she met his gaze and responded.
“Yes Sidney, I believe I would. I’d like more … details about what you’d like to try sexually. I-I don’t have much experience in that department.”
“Have there been … casual partners?” he asked. He studied her intently as he leaned forward to caress her jaw with his knuckles.
“Good. I’m not sure where things will go between us, Sutton, but I can tell you it won’t be casual, and there will be no one else while I’m with you.”
“Does the same apply for you?”
“Yes. You’ll find I’m a very fair Dom.” His caresses continued and trailed down to her throat.
Breath hitched in her throat. She pressed her thighs together as her center throbbed painfully. He’d never taken things any further than kisses, and it’d left her achy and tense. Pleasuring herself had become a daily necessity accompanied by an almost violent release with his name on her lips.
“I-I should tell you something Sid.”
“There haven’t been any partners.”
“You’re a virgin?”
“Yes, is that a problem?”
“No, we’ll take things slow. There’s plenty we can do in the meantime. Would you like a
“God, yes,” she moaned.
He gave a low chuckle that made her juices flow like lava. She’d never thought of
herself as brazen, but right now she was fighting down the urge to spread her legs wide and offer up a buffet of one. No one man should possess this much swagger without trying.
“You’ve been such a good girl, pet. So patient while you settled for kisses and light caresses.” Sidney leaned in to kiss the pulse point in her neck, and she dropped her head back onto the couch to allow him full access. Sutton purred as he sucked the sensitive skin into his mouth.
“I bet if I slipped my hand underneath your skirt right now you’d be soaking wet, wouldn’t you?”
“Did you touch that tight little pussy of yours while you thought about me?”
“Yes what, pet? I want to hear you say it.”
“Yes, I touched myself and thought about you.”
“Show me how you frig yourself while you think about me.”
“I- I don’t know if I can.”
“You can do it, love. I want to see that beautiful pussy of yours on display.”
Sutton swallowed as she complied. Her hands shook as she lifted her hips up and pushed her black pencil skirt up around her waist.
“I’ll take care of these,” he said. He hooked his thumbs into her thong and pulled them down her legs and over her heels.
She felt exposed and exhilarated as she opened her thighs, and he leaned back to study her.
Sutton trembled as she spread her legs shoulder length apart, and he growled his approval.
“It’s just you and me here. Nothing we do together is wrong.”
She bit her bottom lip, feeling nervous as she allowed her hands to creep down to her slick folds.
“That’s a good girl.”
There was something satisfying about the gleam of approval in his dark eyes as he watched her finger dip inside to get a sample of her honey. She brought the liquid back to circle around her swollen nub. She felt like a hare in the path of a cobra as she continued to drive herself higher and higher, unable to look away from his eyes.
“Put your fingers inside that tight cunt.” Her breath came in pants as she moved her fingers inside her slick channel.
“That’s it. You wish it was my thick cock, don’t you?”
“You’re obeying nicely, pet, and for that you deserve a reward.”
“A reward?” she rasped.
“Yes. This time, I’ll let you come.” She bit down on her lip as her fingers pounded into her weeping pussy double time. Her hips rose up to add extra friction, and within seconds she was coming harder than she ever had in her life, screaming his name. A feeling of shame and embarrassment washed over her as the haze of arousal faded. How could I do that in front of him?
“I’d like nothing more than to bury myself between your thighs and taste you right now, but it’s not time for that yet. This was about giving you a sample of what it would mean to be with me.” He words were even and gentle as he leaned forward to ease her skirt back down her body to rest just at her knees. He smoothed out non-existent wrinkles before he moved to sit beside her, gathering her close to his side as he stroked her hair.
“Did you enjoy yourself, pet?”
“Yes, but what about you?”
“Your pleasure is my own.”
“But you didn’t….” She trailed off.
“Come? No. I want you to be sure about your decision when we take that next step, because once I taste you and make you mine, there’ll be no turning back.”

Lessons from the Professor introduced me to another new to me author, Shyla Colt. I really enjoyed her writing style. This is a great BDSM light story! He has been a Dom for years, and his dominate ways speak to her on deeper level.
Sutton had to grow up fast when her father died. She made a promise to herself many years ago she wouldn’t end up dependant on a man like her mother. She put her carrier first for years, and doesn’t know how to stop. Until her friend and coworker introduces her to Sidney a much older professor.
Sidney has had a bad experience with a sub new to the lifestyle in the past, and he is unsure about taking a chance on Sutton. But as he gets to know her better he sees she is nothing like the woman that broke him.
The story of these two is a quick beautiful story!! I love how he took his time to introduce her into the lifestyle instead of jumping straight into tying her up and spanking the tar out of her. It felt like a true transition into a new world for Sutton. I loved how real these characters seemed. Their insecurities are dealt with wonderfully, and although this is a quick read you don’t feel like they were rushed to HEA. I hope y’all like this one as much as I have.

The supporting cast are quite amusing - Leigh and her husband, Sutton's mother and younger sister, and Sutton's ex-fiancé Jackson all play into the story. I really liked the fact that this was played out over months - the two characters did not fall into love or even into bed immediately, and their relationship started out as dating and developed over time. It also portrayed the BDSM aspects as developing slowly which I also appreciated. Sidney took his time with Sutton since everything they did was new to her. I enjoyed the confrontation with Jackson in the cafeteria and the final scene wrapped the book up well.

Lessons from the Professor is a fabulous and fast read that will leave all lovers of interracial erotic romance blissfully satisfied. Ms. Colt has deftly crafted a story filled with engaging protagonists and wonderfully drawn supporting characters that add to the story rather than detract from the main characters. While the story is a shade on the predictable side it was still charming enough where I did not care that I knew the ending before I actually finished the story. Sutton and Sidney is a well-matched pair that oozes chemistry from the moment they meet on the page. You can easily empathize with both characters; Sutton with her spoiled younger sister and meddling mother. And Sidney’s reluctance to form a bond with Sutton after having his last relationship implodes. They are equals from the start and reading their relationship blossom from strangers to lovers was a pleasure to read. I have never read anything by Shyla Colt before but I hope to do so again. This is a highly recommended read.
Sutton is a well-respected ER nurse who, after a devastating break up with her fiancé, has unofficially sworn off men to dedicate all her time to her patients and her family. When her best friend and co-worker Leigh invites her to dinner, as per her routine, Sutton declines the offer to instead go home and sleep until her next shift. When she overhears a few of her colleagues make a few negative comments about her, she impulsively decides to change her plans and dinner with Leigh and her husband. As she arrives with Leigh she is introduced to Sidney, a professor of human behavior who works with Leigh’s husband. Sutton is immediately taken with the older, regal looking, professor and his Welsh accent. The feelings are completely mutual as there is something innocent, wild and sensual pure and submissive that attracts the long dormant Dom instincts in Sidney. He introduces her to his world as any professor knows how to do: with patience, understanding. She, in response, thrives under his tutelage. The couple explores the complicated workings of a Dom/sub relationship they are also trying to keep their pasts from extinguishing any future that they may have together.

Sutton is an ER nurse who has had nothing but responsibilities heaped on her shoulders from the time she was a young girl. She’s only had one serious relationship that ended when she found her fiancé having sex with another nurse. She has all but given up on relationships, opting to bury herself in her work instead. Her friend and co-worker Leigh has been trying to get her to go out with her and her husband but Sutton always declines. One night she overheard some of the other nurses talking about how she never went out with them calling her ‘Miss Priss’. Then Leigh came to her defense. Sutton decided then and there to make a few changes and told Leigh that she would go out with her.
Thus she meets Sidney, a Professor who works with Leigh’s husband, James. Sidney is eighteen years her senior with salt and pepper hair, English accent and what she described as a ‘swagger that pulled her towards him like a magnet’. Sutton hoped that Sidney felt the same pull that she did and when she found out that the feeling was mutual, she decided to date him. She knew that her friend Leigh and her husband James were into an alternative lifestyle and she was curious to try it as well when Sidney told her that he also lived the life. He explained the role of Dom and Submissive to her and she was more that ready to try this even though she was a virgin to it.
Sutton took to this lifestyle like a bee to honey, she came alive and even with the distraction of her spoiled baby sister Carissa, her mother trying to get her and her ex Jackson back together, as well as Sidney’s issues with his ex Christine, these two were able to find their way to a pleasurable relationship. The story was very well written and the characters were people you could care about. You wanted to tell her mom to stop meddling, her sister to grow up and you just wanted to smack her ex, Jackson. Any book that can elicit that kind of feelings from the reader is a book worth reading twice.
