Review of The Professor by Cathy Perkins
Published: January 23, 2012
4 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis: "The Professor presses his palm against her flank, the warmth of her blood, hotter than her skin. Hot, like the life force that he has claimed. The power over life and death is the ultimate thrill.
Someone is murdering women on college campuses. Agent Mick O'Shaughnessy's mission is simple: stop the killer. Following every lead, he meets Meg, the faculty advisor for one of the victims, who can help him track the killer through her campus connections.
Meg Connelly is focused on getting her master's degree to show her estranged family she doesn't need anybody's help to succeed. There's something about Mick she can't resist, but the last time she let someone get close to her, it cost her everything.
As the investigation heats up, so does their relationship. But Mick's interest in Meg doesn't just endanger her heart-it puts her in the sights of the killer."
The Professor by Cathy Perkins is a romance story which focuses equally if not more on the thriller side of the story. The Professor dives into the minds of a complicated agent, an abused child who grew up, and a predator. The chemistry between Meg and Mick truly sparks off the pages, but it's the killer's mind which darkens readers perspective and makes it a reality. I give The Professor by Cathy Perkins 4 smirks because readers will be surprised, jolted out of their seats, and on edge until the very end.
