Kissing Tolstoy (Dear Professor, #1)Kissing Tolstoy by Penny Reid
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


6+++++ “Andrei and Natasha” stars

Lord help me this book was like crack.


“You infect me, body and soul, with primitive thoughts of claiming and conquering. I do not know who I am when I touch you. I am no longer civilized, I am blood and heat and lust. I barely recognize myself.”

I’ve only ever felt this happy reading one other book and that’s The Hating Game by Sally Thorne.

GUYS. READ.THIS.RIGHT.NOW

Honestly

My cheeks hurt from grinning; I’ve highlighted so much Luca just made by list of best book boyfriends.

This book is about Anna, a quirky, nerdy girl who mistakenly emails the wrong person to ask him out on a date……the guy shows up they have a great time but she bolts! Before the date is over after he comes clean and tells her that she emailed the wrong person, but he was so charmed by her email he decided to show up anyways.

The guys name is Luca Kroft and he’s sexy leather wearing big, broad, Russian Lit professor….HER Russian lit professor. And she had no idea until she shows up to her much anticipated class and it’s the guy she bailed on from her date!

This was just so much fun so much gush!

“Men who ride motorcycles and wear leather like a second skin, and look hot doing it, they don’t date ladies who idolize Tolstoy. Tuesday night is trivia night for me, unless I have a new jigsaw puzzle I’m excited about or I’m in my tragic novel reading cave.”

Anna is so endearing! She loves puzzles, trivia night, tragic romance novels and Russian literature. She’s so incredibly down to earth and sweet and very opinionated! She’s also Bi- Racial. Ughghgh I love her. I loved absolutely everything about her. Penny Reid does such a fantastic job making a heroine that I’m always a bit taken aback when I read her books. They’re always so distinctly quirky. Thank god for that because I’m beyond tired of nice blonde heroines.

“She smells like wildflowers and quiet libraries, redolent of peace and excuberance.”

Ok Lets talk about Professor Luca Kroft. Aka F**** me Papi *pretend that’s in Russian* have you ever met a guy and just known right away that you wanna sit on their face…yea that’s how I feel about Luca. He made me tingly…everything that came out of his mouth made me melt and him and Anna are my O fucking T P. They are literally made for each other. He’s big blonde and blue eyed and just a manly nerd..I don’t know how to explain it. He’s so witty and passionate, he’s all heart and soul and he just doesn’t know what to do when Anna’s equal wit and passion fall into his life…I ate it up.

Alright, I’m just babbling because I just finished this book and I feel so lost. This book was my missing puzzle piece and now I have to go read Russian Literature and cry over my precious babies.
