Praise for TEACH ME A LESSON:
"There is no one who writes pure erotic fantasy better than Haynes....In the follow-up to her perfectly racy The Naughty Corner, Jasmine Haynes tells the very forbidden tale of the school counselor/sex therapist-on-the-side Charlotte and school principal Lance, seizing another delicious fantasy and going all the way with it....How forbidden is it to get involved...with a superior from work...? And somehow, given their jobs, the spanking is that much naughtier. But the emotional component matches the taboo and the relevancy, and it is her ability to juggle all of these that makes Haynes's writing so addictive and her stories so fulfilling." --Heroes and Heartbreakers

I loved this fine older-man hero who's both bossy and sweet. He's 48 years old and Charlotte 38, and I loved that he felt his age a little but was invigorated by Charlotte and their sex games. He's sometimes in charge, other times vulnerable and unsure of Charlotte. She felt that Lance was too controlling, too old for her, but I thought he was hot and she was lucky to have him. She wanted the sex no-strings, and it was sweet to see the hero wanting more. Lance is practically enthralled with Charlotte, but it takes Charlotte longer to appreciate him.
I needed her to be more intimate with Lance. Sure, it makes sense for her character (she's afraid of losing her will, her say), but this also caused me to feel the erotic more than the romantic in this one. I think what bugged me about Charlotte was that she confused being submissive with being a doormat. I felt it took her forever to realize that a woman can give up control in the bedroom but still keep control of her life outside that room.
JH writes truly arousing and erotic sex scenes, and I love the dirty talk she uses, sex talk like "my pretty, perfect little wh0re" and "dirty slut." Maybe not for every reader, but I like the dirty talk to be extra dirty and unblushing. Those kinds of words, along with a little spanking, very light bondage, risky sex outdoors, and some hot dom-sub role playing made for a very hot read. It's all m/f, too; no sharing.
Liked the h some of the time, loved that hero all the time, and the sex was super hot and kinky to read. I love JH's way of writing sexy, grown-up characters who aren't too old to learn something about themselves, not too old to have hot, exciting sex, and not too old to fall in love.

The sexy spankings, naughty words, and the sheer pleasure that both Lance and Charlotte had with each other made this a hot, fun read. The secondary storyline with Melody, the troubled teen and Ethan, her former friend, added a touching storyline. There are school politics, unreasonable parents, and a chance that Charlotte could be fired that add to the drama. I liked that her friend, Lola, was part of the story from book 1 in the series. I haven't read that book ... yet, but I was able to read this book as a standalone. I am now curious to read The Naughty Corner (book 1) now.
This is a light bdsm erotic romance. I liked that while Lance was dominant at times, he was very willing to let Charlotte call the shots at times. He was dominant, but not a Dom, but enjoyed sensual fantasies and a bit of kink mixed in. Charlotte was the stronger character in my opinion.
I give it 4**** out of 5. I enjoyed it, but didn't get as involved with the characters as I did with some of her other books, such as The Principal's Office.
I really loved Jasmine Haynes’s THE NAUGHTY CORNER, and the way she introduced us to Gray and Lola as they discovered a mutual kinky love after being inadvertently brought together by Lola’s bratty nephews. So I was happy to see that TEACH ME A LESSON follows directly from that story, although it could still easily be read as a stand-alone book. I enjoy seeing couples from an earlier book in the context of a new one, especially when they play a key role in the new couple’s romance. And with TEACH ME A LESSON, we also get another great erotic romance set in the deliciously naughty background of an ordinary suburban high school, where consenting adults secretly meet to privately engage in oh-so-inappropriate behavior.
While THE NAUGHTY CORNER featured a successful CEO moonlighting as a part-time high school football coach, our hero in TEACH ME A LESSON is the principal himself. Married and divorced twice, Lance Hutton has become resigned to the fact that he isn’t likely to find a permanent relationship with any woman. But that doesn’t mean he hasn’t taken notice of the delectable Miss Moore. She’s only part-time at his school, which limits the moments he has to ogle her from afar. One fateful afternoon, Principal Hutton decides to stop by Miss Moore’s office just as she’s crawling on the floor for a misplaced apple. And that’s when everything changes.
Charlotte Moore doesn’t want to submit to any man ever again, not after the awful one who had her doubting every thought and decision. The only independent decision she was able to make in that relationship was finally choosing to leave it. Since then, Charlotte has focused solely on casual affairs with much younger men, ones that let her take charge so she never has to worry about losing her identity again. So she’s puzzled by her apparent attraction to someone like Principal Lance Hutton. Not only is he at least 10 years older than her, but he’s also clearly someone who likes to be in charge. Of *everything*. But when Principal Hutton’s surprise visit prompts Charlotte to slyly express interest in a certain naughty activity, they seize the moment without realizing just how life-changing that decision will be for them both.
I love Jasmine Haynes books because they are always the perfect blend of kinky sex, adult relationships, and true romance. TEACH ME A LESSON is yet another example of this winning formula. We have a hero and heroine who are older but wiser, never hesitating to express what they want and do not want, and willing to expand their sexual horizons for something that makes any previous couplings pale by comparison. More importantly, Jasmine Haynes also gives us a story that displays the true qualities of both characters, as they prove their innate worthiness through the actions they take to help the vulnerable teenagers in their care. We get to laugh and cry and cheer for the bad guys to lose and the good guys to win, and then discover that maybe the bad guys weren’t really all that bad after all. And throughout it all, there’s that magnetic attraction between Lance and Charlotte, and their mutual discovery of kinky sex that ties it all together so well.
As I’ve found with so many other Jasmine Haynes books, reading TEACH ME A LESSON was like coming home. It may not be everyone’s idea of home, to be sure, but it’s one that I’ll want to return to (and I’m hoping for many more visits in the future).
Overall: 5 stars
Sensuality level: 3.5 (BDSM-lite scenes including spanking and outdoor sex, discussions of cuckold fetish)
But at $10.99, $9.99, and $7.99 each for the three books in this series, they are just WAY overpriced! This book is simply not worth that price.
Thank you Jasmine for the pleasures.
