    I have to say it s taken me months to read this book, it s not the books fault I want to make that clear and I ll explain why at the end.I wasn t sure I was going to like this book and I suspect a lot of people might not because basically it s about prostitution, it s dressed up but there s no hiding it, not that it makes any effort to do so.River is struggling financially she s working and studying and falling further and further behind it s got to the point where she needs to decide if she should eat or ride the bus.Her friend Jade offers her a solution by mentioning the Dean s List, the Dean s List is about students seeking sponsorship from members in their field of study and these members can be very accommodating and in return you see to their needs.Basically intelligent good looking students can sign up to the Dean s List, their picture is put online for the exclusive clientele to pick from.I wasn t sure I d like it and I did wonder if was smut packaged differently not that there s anything wrong with that sometimes smut is just what you re looking for it turns out I really enjoyed this I liked the characters, River has good reasons for signing up but struggles at times with her decision, I really liked her and the men in her life and I m so glad one of them in particular gets his own book novella The Graduate which I m reading next Well I was going to read it next but for some reason unlike this book and the one after it s not on KU which I find surprisingly.This book surprised me, it was than I expected and I enjoyed it than I thought I would Jonathan was charismatic and intriguing and from the first moment I wanted them to work out but is that even an option Men and women have different reasons for using this service Jonathan makes it clear up front I was married and lost my wife to cancer several years ago She was irreplaceable I don t want the entanglements of a relationship I m not interested in pleasing a woman in every aspect of her life I m not interested in experiencing the kind of pain I felt when Claire died in my arms So River knows without a doubt not to think of this as a relationship it s a business arrangement pure and simple, even if she wants it to be so much .Why did it take me so long to read it When I noticed it on I downloaded it to my phone instead of my kindle no idea why and there it sat, now I usually take my kindle with me if I expect to get any reading time while I m out but sometimes it s unexpected and then I use my phone and that s how I started this book By the time I got round to reading it I d forgotten what it was about I download a lot of books and I hadn t checked any reviews so it was a surprise This continued for weeks reading little here and there, not the best way to get into a book I know but still it held me and after reading a bit yesterday I was hooked I downloaded it to my kindle and finished it overnight.

    LEEANN S REVIEW5 STARSRiver is a full time student and she is flat broke Her besties introduces her to a life that goes well beyond her imagination Her eyes are opened to a world she never knew existed and a lot of questions she had in the back of her mind about her friend are answered Jonathan is a widow and extremely wealthy When he and River meet, lines will be drawn, they will be crossed and there will be no going back They find themselves considering if breaking the rules is worth it to get a happy ever after.The progression of the characters from the start of the story to the end is well thought out and well planned What I liked about River in particular is that she says what she really thinks There is no confusion about what she thinks or feels She really sees things for what they are in spite of the smoke and mirrors.Despite the circumstances of them Coming together, Jonathan is the ultimate gentleman except in the bedroom, then he becomes a pure alpha male determined to give as much pleasure as he takes.This is one of this stories that has an element off truth to it which makes it intriguing as much as it it suprising this sort of thing really does happen.Kelly Collins has a way of writing that ensures the sexy scenes are smoldering the emotion is real and the humour makes you laugh out loud at times She brings the fantasy to life in a way that leaves you wanting I loved this book and recommend it to anyone and everyone, it will keep you up for hours because once you start reading you won t want to put it down until the end

    Wow This was a great book that dived right into the world high class companions based upon your university education River Roberts has hit rock bottom and has no idea how she can afford anything else to go wrong She can barely keep up with her rent and tuition costs working at the coffee shop In walks her best friend Jade who tells her about her current job based out of the university, called The Dean s List, where she can earn in one night than River makes in a week Jade tells her the job is great but not to get attached and that it can be lonely.Jonathan Ferris is a widow who is not looking for a serious relationship and is part of The Dean s List He is attracted to River but lets her know he is only looking for casual with her.As both River and Jonathan become attracted to each other and in an environment where this is frowned upon, will River be able to keep going Then one night changes everything for everyone involved.The characters in this book were so well developed and I loved the supporting characters as well River is trying to overcome her past without letting go of who she has become which is a very fuzzy line for her I absolutely adored the character of Ben and understood why he cared for River Then there is Paul and I loved the relationship between he and River and everything she taught him Such a great read and Kelly Collins certainly does not disappoint with this one

    ARC received for an honest review Wowjust, Holy WOW.I will admit, when I received the ARC of this book, I did not read the synopsis, I had no idea what the book was about or if it was even something I would normally read Boy was I happily surprised The premise of this book was fantastic, my initial thought when hearing the title and seeing the cover was college student chases professor or vice versa That is NOT what this book is It is a story about a girl, River, who has hit financial rock bottom and is forced to make choices that she never thought she would ever consider Although she goes into her new job with her eyes as open as they can be, things get a little complicated However, being smart and confident are her strengths and she uses the opportunities that come her way to her advantage, and makes the uncomfortable position she is in, a bit easier for her to bear and a whole LOT of fun to read about.I loved the dynamic between River and Jonathan They are so different and yet they connect on such a level that it can t be disputed I also loved Jade Her interactions with River are what true friendship is all about I would HIGHLY recommended this book I have already posted it to my blog page and can tell you, you are in for one Hell of a ride Pam Bitches Heart Books

    I m not sure there are enough words to express what I thought about The Dean s List It was by far one of the most interesting and fascinating stories I ve had the pleasure of reading It was different from most books that are currently out, the ones with the nearly identical plots that aren t hard to figure out I loved how I wasn t able to easily figure out how River s story was going to end, I even thought that maybe she d never get her happy ending But life has a funny way of working out What I really loved most was River s compassion, because she has some serious amounts of compassion running through her I especially loved how she helped one client s self esteem grow into something truly amazing, amazing enough to bring tears go my eyes I cannot recommend this book enough..you definitely need to read it You ll not be sorry about it It will be on your favorites list by the time you read, The End Do yourself a favor, and one click this one immediately.

    4.5 HeartsThis is the first book I have read by Author Kelly Collins and it most certainly will not be my last I loved her descriptive writing style She pulls her readers into the story from start to finish.I will be honest, I was not exactly sure what to expect when I started reading this story, and I loved that what I thought I would be reading was far from the truth This story is about a young woman struggling in graduate school and not so sure how she is ever going to survive She decides to take a job at concierge service She isn t sure she can hand what it all will entail but the money she will make pushes her forward Letting her head overrule her heart.River Roberts set off on life changing journey that she never knew would happen She was somewhat broken and let people push her around when this story started Yes, she is sassy and outspoken and will have you in stitches, but she also is a vulnerable woman who just wants to be loved for the first time in her life She does not know what it is like to have someone actually care of her.I loved how River sized up each man, checking them off a mental list and noting little things about them She was very good at seeing the good in people and pulling out the positives in them The three men that she is drawn to all need something different from her and she knows exactly what she wants to do, even if she knows her heart my break.There are many men who River meets throughout this story but there are three men that I want to talk about.First we meet Jonathan Ferris, the filthy rich man that oozed confidence and power River had me drooling right along with her on their first date Jonathan intrigued me from the minute he was introduced to us Jonathon needed River s friendship and love even when he didn t realize he did and river needed his support just as much.Second, we have Ben, this man was much older and just wanted someone to talk to and teach how business should be handled I loved how he focused on manners and common courtesy River knew this man would teach her so much than she was even ready for.Last, there was Paul, a man who just never knew how to get a girl and needed someone who had love and patience to teach him I must say he was the best student ever and learned some serious skills River and Paul s connection was one you don t find that often It is the type of friendship everyone wants to is too scared to ask I loved how excited Paul was when River told him he graduated as her student.You cannot give a review without mentioning Rivers best friend Jade This girl had me rolling She was saucy and always popped in when we needed a break from something serious.I would love to add a few quotes but every one I want to add feels like it will give something important away So, I will leave you with this, if you are looking for a story that has many layers to it this baby is for you There is are some off the charts steamy scenes in this story, but there is tons of humor, and a few places that will have you gasping Oh, and a few that will have you wanting to hop in the book and smack someone.
