Review: Physical Education by Louisa Bacio

Physical Education by Louisa Bacio

Publisher: Ravenous Romance
Genre: Erotic Romance

Heat Rating: 3

Warning: Contains F/F elements



Tired of boring sex and wanting to expand her pleasure, 24-year-old Amanda "Mandi" Wilkinson enrolls in summer school at San Francisco Sex University, an exclusive sex school located in the heart of San Francisco. What Mandi doesn't realize is that not all of the mysterious dropouts are simply flunking sex-ed.

Reed McAllister came to Sex U. for reasons all his own. Undercover, he's searching for a woman, the right woman, and so far he doesn't have any leads. Reed never saw himself working at a place such as SFSU, let alone instructing, but he had to admit it - the job did come with its perks. When Mandi turns up on the missing list, will Reed be able to save her and give her the lessons she so desires?

Angelique’s Review

The blurb on “Sex University: Physical Education” intrigued me. Once I began to read the novella, it reminded me a bit of Anne Rice’s “Exit to Eden.” Ms. Bacio cleverly crafts a world of wicked pleasure and mystery that pulls the reader in to this erotic thriller.

The characters in this story are well developed. Mandi is an independent and headstrong heroine while the hero, Reed, is dedicated and conflicted. They compliment each other as a couple and fit well into story.
The author added a second storyline very late in the novella. While it is a great sex scene and we are happy for the lucky couple, it is very out of place. If it had stretched back to the beginning or was another story completely, it would have made much more sense. Another thing that caught me off guard was the weak climax and resolution after everything was set up in the rising action so perfectly.

I was expecting more, but “Sex University: Physical Education” still made for a good read and I am definitely interested to read more of what Ms. Bacio has to offer.
