He pulled several lengths as Laura watched, seemingly oblivious to her presence. Her heavy legs remained rooted even as she tried to persuade herself to go. Just get out, Laura. Walk away and leave.  Hunter paused at the end of the lane and stared at her, sending a shiver through her. Cheeks flaming, she dove under and swam furiously. She didn’t stop until breathless and exhausted.  Unfortunately he was still there and she was still frustrated.
His dark gaze studied her as she swam over to the edge and gathered her breath. “Why did you do that?”
Blinking away the water, she scowled. “Do what, Sir?”
“Swim as if you were trying to escape something. Were you trying to escape me?”
Laura released a spluttered laugh. “Of course not.” His eyebrow twitched as if he didn’t believe her. Damn him. “You were doing the same,” she added.
He chuckled, the sound unexpectedly lifting her heart. “You might be right.”
They stared at each other. Surely he heard her pulse pounding? When he looked at her like that, she was sure he could see everything. Did he know the truth? Was that why he’d taken a disliking to  her? Shit. She was such a fool for agreeing to this. No job was worth this.
Courage sapped by his dark eyes, she swam over to the steps. On her like a tiger, he swam quickly after her and she failed to prevent the surprised yelp as she grabbed on to the metal steps and his arms came around  her, gripping the railings. She twisted around to find him looming over her, the water dripping from his hair onto her face. The haunted look no longer lingered in his gaze, instead hunger seeped into it and twisted her stomach.
“You are trying to swim away your frustration,” he stated.
Laura gaped up at him, her shaky fingers curling around the stair railings, just beneath his hands. His body pressed into hers, making the steps dig into her back.
“Are you frustrated, Laura?”
“Are you?” she threw back.
A wry smile quirked on his lips. “Yes. God help me, I am.”
His mouth came down upon hers, causing a gasp. She heard his muffled curse as his hands twined under her damp hair and his tongue pressed into her mouth. Powerless against the onslaught, she gripped stupidly at the railings as her body responded to his touch.
Arching into him, she kissed him back. Even as she fought it, her body craved him.


“Hunting Laura” was…different.  We all the dominant/submissive thing is pretty popular right now in romance books, but this is the first I’ve read that basically about a school where you go to learn to be a submissive.  Interesting…This book is about…Laura!  How could you have guessed, right?  Well, Laura enrolls in a submissive school, but not for the reason that you think.  She’s got a secret, which I don’t want to ruin for you, but she’s not exactly here for the reasons that everyone else is.  The thing is, she does have issues with sex; enter Niall Hunter (did you just get that joke?  Oh, I kill me).  Hunter is a teacher at the school and Laura is one of his students.  He *ahem* helps her out with some of her issues, and endeavors to find out the secret she is keeping.
Now for the important stuff: the sex.  This is a short book, around 120 pages, and sex accounts for at least 110 of those pages.  Just kidding, not THAT much, but there’s a lot of sex.  And it’s hot, kinky and controlling sex, let  me tell ya.  If that is your thing, then you need to be all over this book.
I liked the way the book was written.  It makes it easy to follow what is going on with the characters.  I did have a bit of a problem connecting with Laura a bit.  There were a few things about her personality that I found annoying, but  I think that’s just a personal opinion, and it doesn’t really detract from the story.  Niall Hunter more than makes up for it.  Let me just say this, during the
writing of this review, I keep accidentally typing his name as “Hunger”.  My subconscious is trying to tell you all, Niall Hunter deserves a place of honor in the female spank bank.  He is pretty much  everything you want in this type of character.  Damn.

All in all, I enjoyed this book.  While short, it does a good job of wrapping you up its plot and its characters.  I think if you like bdsm themes, you’ll like this book.  4 stars.
