An Inch at a Time, By Belleau & Gormley


**This book contains Male Male Relations**
James Sheridan is failing history. Luckily, his professor is a rumored pervert, and James isn’t too proud to pay for a better grade with his body. Professor Carson lives up to his reputation, but he’s not
unethical enough to take sexual bribes. What he can offer is some highly unconventional tutoring . . . creative use of a ruler included.
The deal? Studying, followed by a “quiz.” Wrong answer? Spanking. Right answer? Reward. Ace the final, earn some mindblowing sex. It’s harder work than sexual bribery, but it beats the volunteer tutors at the student center.
After a few study sessions, James realizes he wants way more than a grade from Professor Carson, even if he’s not sure what that is. Carson’s a silver fox, all right, but James isn’t “bent”
the way Carson is, and for him, the spankings are only supposed to be a means to an end. But the better he gets at history, the more he realizes he likes getting answers wrong just as much as getting them right.

 

I had read Giving an Inch a couple months ago, and I had mixed emotions about that book.  My biggest complaint about the story was that it felt like we were dropped into the middle of a story without any clue of what had happened before.  Well, I am happy to say that with this book?  We are able to find out what happened between James and Carson.
I really enjoyed being able to meet James and find out what caused him to be with Carson.  His character was developed really well during the story; we were able to find out about his past.  With Carson though, we still didn’t find out a lot about him in this book.  He still has the sense of mystery about him.
Overall, I did enjoy this book much more than the first one.  I will keep an eye out for the next book because I hope that we learn more about Carson in that one.
