PhD candidate William Yderis comes to Efeldon University to teach and finish his degree in charmcrafting. For methodical, sedate, and scholarly William, the school defies his expectations—and not in a good way. The biggest surprise comes when William meets his boss, absent-minded Archmage Taliesin Karsus, a man as infuriating as he is sexy.
As William struggles to carve out his place at the university, he is drawn in to Tal’s chaotic experiments… and drawn to Tal despite his logical mind’s protests. And if Tal’s wavering affection isn’t enough to complicate William’s studies, he uncovers a plot involving an ambitious staff member, brainwashed students, sexual assault, and a threat to the lives of everyone on campus. When it comes time to face the danger, William is on his own. For the first time in his life, he’ll have to trust in his heart instead of his head.
I Experimented Once in College by Aishlar Snow revealed a wonderful adventure of romance and fantasy to readers. Its quick paced story line made the story an easy read and enjoyable.
William Yderis is a PhD candidate at Efeldon University. Eager to complete his degree in charm crafting by teaching a class in it, he meets his boss Archmage Taliesin Karsus and finds out he’s an assistant to the Archmage by helping him with his experiments. One look at the sexy Archmage, William couldn’t stop drooling over his alluring physique. Only time will explain this invisible attraction to his stern intelligent boss.
Archmage Taliesin Karsus is serious in his experiments and with the assistance of William he wants to be successful even though he doesn’t place a warning label on all of his experiments.
This book is not in a series, it is a standalone book. This book was written in the point of view of William so the readers never got the chance to experience what it would be like to be in the mind of the Archmage Taliesin. There are pros and cons to this. I believe the pros are it keeps the character mysterious and unknown to the reader so you’re not sure what would happen next in the plot of the story. One of the cons I believe were you never got inside Tal’s head so myself as a reader had some difficulty connecting with the Archmage. Overall it was a great fast paced story and the author did a wonderful job with description of setting and characters. I recommend any romance reader interested in reading MM to read this book.
