This was a twist on the student/teacher romance that I could enjoy. It's been years since Bianca fell in love with teacher Ian Anderson. I normally find student/teacher romance a little icky, but since years have passed, it's closer to a traditional paranormal romance instead.

What happens when you grow up and move on, but your crush on your teacher doesn’t?
Bianca Silver is back in her hometown, researching shifter culture with her two best friends. An unexpected encounter in the woods with the teacher she’s dreamed about since she was a teenager sends her quiet new life into a tailspin, putting Bianca in grave danger and offering her a depth of longing and pleasure she never imagined was possible.
Ian Anderson has spent the last ten years trying to repress the violent lust and protectiveness he feels toward honor student, Bianca Silver. When he reunites with grown-up Bianca in the woods the night of a Scenting Ceremony his control over his instincts is lost. But loving Bianca isn’t as easy as he thought it would be. Between her stubborn streak and the efforts of the person who seems to want her out of the picture, it’s going to take their combined wisdom for these fated mates to begin their new life.
Wise Sass Mates is a very steamy standalone story in the world of Milly Taiden’s Sassy Mates.
Bianca's initial resistance to Ian's interest was actually refreshing. Her reasons were a little iffy, but they fit her character well. Ian was very determined though, especially when it becomes obvious that Bianca has become the target of an attacker several times.
This attacker was a brilliantly done character, He had the right motives and super creepy crazy personality to make really work. One of the best villains I've seen in a long time.
Again, the shifter romance is a bit face once it starts, but that is what happens when you know your mate by first sight/smell. Their romance is quite sweet, but still hot. A great, quick read in the Sassy Ever After world.
