“Her eyes sparked with more. With a yearning she couldn’t hide behind the demure tilt of her lips no matter how hard she tried. She looked at me like she knew what desire was and imagined me giving all of it to her.” 

Voyeur by Fiona Cole was seriously so much more than you would ever expect from the title. If you are going into this (or shying away from it) I can guarantee it’s nothing you will expect it to be. Is it a forbidden romance? Yes. Is it a student-teacher trope? Yes. Is it sexy? ABSOLUTELY! But, Voyeur is the story about two people who have to climb over secrets and a painful past in order to have patience and show forgiveness.

“I want the man who looks at me like I’m more than any of those stars.” 

Voyeurism is gaining sexual pleasure from watching others in sexual acts. This is where we start with Oaklyn, a 19-year-old freshman college student who parents blew her tuition fund. Now Oak has two choices, drop out of college or work at the club Voyeur, where can perform sexual acts (of her choice) for paying guests in order to pay for college. Obviously Oak choses the job but not without hesitation at first. She first meets Callum after finding out he’s her astronomy teacher, she is surprised to find him young and extremely handsome. Finding a magnetic pull.

“Most people came to Voyeur because they knew what they wanted, and they wanted to satisfy that craving for a kink most people didn’t understand. “

Callum however isn’t as surprised to meet his new student Oaklyn, because he’s already seen her at Voyeur. Cal is drawn to Oaklyn like the Earth is to the Sun. But Cal has a dark past, one that is hindering him from tempting any sort of romantic, intimate relationship. But as a friendship ensues with Oaklyn, the magnetism the both of them are feeling  is enough to make him question everything hes been running from. Oak shows him that you can move on from things you never thought possible if you’re willing to open yourself up. They have a rocky relationship, between having to hide it from school, Oak’s job at Voyeur, and Cal’s trauma. They start off with more issues than most couples. But is their feelings enough to triumph??

“With Oaklyn though, it wasn’t about being alone. I wasn’t ready to let go of her or the picture of a normal future she conjured so easily in my head.”

I thought this book was really unique and original. For a forbidden student-teacher romance Fiona Cole added much more depth to the story, with elements I was not expecting. I couldn’t figure out a clear plot originally but as the story progressed I realized it was about surviving and growing your life after something like Cal had to experience. He was a little reckless at times, but I loved that Fiona made it as real as possible by giving Cal some of the most prominent thoughts and actions of a trauma survivor. While their relationship was insta-love ish, i thought that they had good chemistry and i enjoyed reading them together. The book combines the right amounts of sexy and emotion. I was excited when I needed to be, DEFINITELY frustrated when I needed to be, and possibly (deff did) ugly cried when I needed to. If you’re looking for a forbidden romance with a little bit of the unexpected Voyeur is your book! I was very happy with reading it, and is probably my favorite Fiona Cole book to date.

My Rating: 5/5

I didn’t know she was my student the first time I paid to watch her at Voyeur. 

Once she walked into my classroom, another smiling college freshman, I knew I should stop going. Stop watching. 

But I couldn’t do it. Everything about her makes me want more, and once I realize she wants me too, the temptation becomes irresistible. 

The worst part is that she has no idea her professor is the one watching behind the glass. 

I just have to hope that once she finds out the truth, she wants the same thing I do. Because now that I’ve seen all of her, I can’t look away.

Stand-alone.
