Publisher's Summary

After an erotic one-week fling with a musician she meets in a bar, Thea Cunning never expects to see Levi Black again. Then Monday morning comes around, and she discovers that her former lover is not only her professor, but he's also one of the top criminal lawyers in the state of Massachusetts.
With everyone in class vying to be one of the 12 disciples - a group of 12 students that Professor Black takes under his wing - tensions run high. Thea considers dropping his class, given their passionate week together and their undeniable chemistry. After all, there are other (less infuriatingly sexy) law professors on campus.
But to accomplish her goal and get her father out of prison, Thea knows she needs to learn under the best of the best - and that's Levi Black.
But can she learn under the best, without being under the best?

Great story, however...

I wished that I had read it instead of listened to it. My grievances with this book have everything to do with the production than and performance and not the story.
The performance of the male narrator killed it. He was off with his exclamations, intonations and emoting of the story. He emoted one way but the story went another, it was bad acting and reading on his part.
The other bad thing was the intermittent sounds they decided to throw in to the production, an alarm clock going off, a phone buzzing, it was distracting and unnecessary- not to mention louder than the vocals and therefore deafening!
It added nothing to the story and made the already jumpy editing worse.

The story was very good, I was hooked from the beginning and the love story and subsequent mini mystery involving Thea's father made it more than just a love story.
The book was funny sexy and had a great pace but as I said at the beginning, I wished I had read it rather than listened to it, I would have saved myself a lot of money!!

Great story, characters & narrators!!

What a great surprise!! This story was very good. It was a forbidden romance between teacher & student. However, had interesting twists and turns, great secondary characters, who were well developed. The main characters were awesome. The flow of the relationship was good. I'm not alway a fan of dual narrative. The sexual tension gets a little watered down when you hear the inner monologue of both characters, and when you hear 1st hand the mutual attraction it can feel like insta-love. When the pov is only from one side sometimes it ratchets up the sexual tension!!! In the case of Black Rainbow the dual POV was great. I also liked that the Hero was NOT a manwhore and the heroine was NOT this quirky wallflower, who once she is noticed by the Hero is all of the sudden the most attractive women to enter a room/bar/ restaurant. The heroine Thea Cunning is FEIRCE long before meeting Mr Black. I felt like I knew them well by the end of their story. This is the 1st book I have listened too by JJ McAvoy, so glad I did. Stand alone - no cliff hanger!!
