ARC REVIEW OF Illicit by Ava Harrison

Illicit: A Novel by [Harrison, Ava]

Ava Harrison has done it again- blown me away with the elegantly complex and emotionally forbidden storyline. This is a tale of two lost souls who found their way in each other’s arms in this angsty , forbidden  student/teacher story.
Gwendolyn “Lynn” Adams has just found out her boyfriend has been cheating on her and she goes and sits on a beach to find some solace from her pain. While there she meets this dark and handsome guy she meets while on the beach.  His name is Carson and it was one night that Lynn will remember forever..they had a night that was so beautiful and swoon worthy. Star gazing and  a fling in the sand. Only Lynn left Carson asleep on the sand and ran away, never thinking she would see her handsome hunk again…oh but she does, as Lynn's first period TEACHER!!! 

Oh the words to describe this story…Taboo, Forbidden, Illicit..but it wont matter what words I put to this story, it is so hot and so complex and so emotional and filled with so many ups and downs, twists and turns. A love story that is to take away the ugly and fill it with all the good life has to offer. Its about two lost souls who were about to give up when they had a chance meeting and ended up finding their reasons for living…each other. Lynn and Carson's journey was hard-fought, hard-won, angsty, and so perfect. I cried, I laughed, I yelled at my kindled..I adored Carson and how he was there for Lynn and I wanted to hug Lynn and cherish everything good she did for Carson. This is such a beautiful story . If I had to say one thing that could have been improved if I had to nitpick, then I wish the epilogue showed the MC 2-4 years down the line and how the lives were then. I do hope the author writes Lynn’s BF book for I would like to see her story after everything that has been written in this book and see if her life is impacted since this book has been written.. other than that, I loved it and I know you will adore it too!!

My rating: 4.8 stars ****
