Review: Voyeur by Fiona Cole

VOYEURI didn’t know she was my student the first time I paid to watch her at Voyeur. 

Once she walked into my classroom, another smiling college freshman, I knew I should stop going. Stop watching. 

But I couldn’t do it. Everything about her makes me want more, and once I realize she wants me too, the temptation becomes irresistible. 

The worst part is that she has no idea her professor is the one watching behind the glass. 

I just have to hope that once she finds out the truth, she wants the same thing I do. Because now that I’ve seen all of her, I can’t look away.

I received an Advanced Readers Copy in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Fiona Cole for providing copy of Voyeur.

Beyond gripping, just delicious in all the right emotionally devastating ways. From the beautifully captivating writing style to the heart felt character dynamics, I was bewitched body and soul during this read. Hands down, it was stunning.

First off, I will admit that the main reason for requesting this ARC is a guilty pleasure of mine – one of my favorite tropes (or romance backbones – however you want to categorize it) is romances between authority figures. Anything from boss+employee to teacher+student romances, I am a dive in now kind of gal. Ergo my immediate need for Voyeur

So bottom line I was hooked even before I started, a forbidden attraction between professor and freshmen student – oh gush my loins more please and thank you. 

I loved the main characters. At the beginning Oaklyn seemed to be resourceful, confident yet naive and shy with a heart of gold. She was extremely smart, resilient, and down right a perfect female lead. As for the delicious Professor, Callum – oh Dr. Pierce you sexy thing you. From the beginning he has this guarded personality, he knows he is an attractive man (panty dropping, mouth watering really…) yet I couldn’t help but be concerned something was harboring under this exterior. He definitely had his secrets, and the Voyeur was only a fraction of his conflicts. I won’t spoil it, but I loved his development. Normally his situation, internal conflicts, personally baggage is more conveyed on females within romance novels, the tables were definitely flipped sideways with this one. I absolutely loved Cal, he was flawlessly beautiful and my heart swooned for him.

And the chemistry – cheese and crackers it was hot. In my opinion, I think the reason why Oaklyn seemed to be the strong willed character was because in this novel it was the her being the knight and shining armor for the him. The build of sexual tension was beyond beaver drool worthy, when they were in a room together with their sensual glances you felt it, but when it came down to the real passionate moments, Okalyn was the rock. Callum’s growth couldn’t have happened without a character like Oaklyn by his side, even with the troubles they had, they really revolved around one another. 

Not only did I just overall enjoy their chemistry, I think it is pretty obvious, it was really just the entire situation between Callum and Oaklyn was downright emotionally powerful. Both the personal battles and internal conflicts that are hugely gravitating over their heads really affect their ability to connect, especially from Callum. I loved their connection that went beyond the primal sexual connection and was really emotionally beautiful yet delectably sexy all wrapped into one storyline. 

I could not recommend this read more than simply saying – YOU NEED TO READ THIS NOW. For my first Fiona Cole book I was beyond pleased. She really set the bar for any future reads I plan to add to my TBR. Aside from my diehard fangirlling over my authority type tropes that brought me this amazing book, I can honestly say this delivered for my expectations and more. It was an emotional whirlwind of beauty and pain of a premise with the best character dynamics that made me smile until I was laughing, tearful until I was crushed, and drooling until I realized it was beyond sexy – it was an amazing read.
