I Dream of Cassie caught me by sweet surprise. It follows that of a man going through hard times and down on his luck, turning things around in his love life. After 14 years with the same woman, things changed and he no longer thought he’d have the love for someone he once had. Then one day things changed. The curly haired girl walked in this life and unexpectedly changed him. Professor Valentine never thought of falling for his student. But Cassie was not just any normal student… She was the love of his life that he thought he would never find.

This book is a companion novel to book one of the series and is told in Diego’s point of view. This is the first book I’ve read by this author but I am definitely going to go back and read the other books in this series.

Diego isn’t exactly having the easiest of times right now. His divorce is getting messy and nothing is going his way. Diego agrees to take over for a fellow teacher as she goes out on maternity leave. This is how he meets Cassie. It’s after some one-on-on tutoring sessions that he is beginning to fall for her. Of course that’s a no no, she’s a student. They are drawn together and Diego can’t help but wanting to be close to her.

I really enjoyed this story. It was so well written, I just got pulled right into the story. I am definitely going to read the other books in this series.

Ah, Cassie and Diego are back, but this time we get to see things through the eyes of Diego. We get too see a bit more into what he was going though with his marriage, divorce, and ultimately giving into his feelings for his student. This book can be read as a standalone, but I feel like you will have more insight from reading the first book. Being able to see things from his perspective gave me more of an understanding as a reader about some of the things said and done in Professor Valentine. A big thing for me is that the author did a POV all in one book instead of jumping around from person to person. Overall I enjoyed this quick read and will most likely read the next book in the series.

If you read Professor Valentine, you should really read this book! I Dream of Cassie, is from the Professor’s point of view. I couldn’t resist reading it when I heard it was being released.
I recommend reading Professor Valentine first then come back and read this one. It won’t disappoint. It took some time but as I got further into it, I really started to remember the story from Cassie’s point of view. Nice to see his inner turmoil over how he was feeling and what he loves about her. If you like these types of romances check it out!

I Dream of Cassie: A Student-Teacher Age-Gap Romance (Kirk University) by Diana Vale

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by the author. I Dream of Cassie is a companion story to Professor Valentine. This book is in Diego’s point of view instead of Cassie’s.

Diego is a professor at Kirk University. He is going through a rough divorce and finds himself in a tough position. He finds one of his student’s gorgeous and knows that he can’t get involved with her. The quote I chose for Diego is: “Rest assured, your secret is safe with me. And the Kirk security staff, but I’m sure they don’t eyeball each and every piece of CCTV footage.”

Cassie is a student at Kirk University and finds herself falling for her professor. She isn’t exactly sure what to do because she keeps running into him. Not only that, but she also has one on one meetings with him for class. The quote I chose for Cassie is: “Oh yeah. Most people are really friendly. I mean, of course you get the odd snobby person, that’s to be expected somewhere like here. But most people I’ve met are pretty down-to-earth.”

Highly recommended for Contemporary Romance lovers.

I enjoyed this student, teacher romance, which is actually a companion story to book one in the Kirk University series. That book was told from the student, Cassie’s perspective and this one is told from Diego’s, the teacher’s. This fairly short but engaging read let’s us into Diego’s mind, and what he was thinking when he met Cassie. Sensible, level headed, respected Professor Diego Valentine had worked hard to become a professor in his field at a young age. He had also been with his wife for over a decade, but then his life became complicated. His marriage fell apart and his ex wife, Linda demanded part of his financial assets, then his brother Matty started setting him up with random women.

Diego then found himself strangely drawn to the beautiful and spirited young women, Cassandra, that he saw for one on one tutorials. He likes that she is not afraid to go after what she wants, but he’s adamant that he can’t be falling for her, as that would be inappropriate. After all, she’s his student and half his age, and yet Diego, for once can’t seem to do the sensible thing, and Cassie is also not giving up on him that easily. I liked the main characters, Diego and Cassie from the previous two books that they feature in, and their chemistry once again, came across in the narrative and led to some steamy scenes. It was interesting to see their romance from Diego’s point of view rather that Cassie’s. I was pleased that their love story had a HEA.

Meeting Cassie and Diego yet again! This is a short novella that is told well and made me wish it was just a bit longer. I truly enjoy the way the author has written this book. The 2 companion stories coincide perfectly with the initial book, and getting the perspective from Cassie and Diego individually is the icing on the cake.
Diego is a man who dismissed love and anything associated with the word out of his life after divorcing his ex wife. As he tries to find his footing placing his life back together he also finds Cassie along the way. Diego felt a pull to Cassie the moment they met, and the age difference nor her being a student couldn’t derail the attraction and chemistry of these 2. Diego’s story reflects a man in love with no sight in end.

I Dream of Cassie: A Student-Teacher Age-Gap Romance is the companion story to ‘Professor Valentine’, the first book in the Kirk University series by Diana Vale. It gives us a fuller picture of what was happening, as this is from Diego’s perspective. It is a short story- a novella that made for a very quick and easy read.
This is a new adult contemporary student-teacher romance- with an age-gap, angst, and some drama.
Book one was what happened when 18 year old Cassandra Rodriguez, a psychology student and freshman at Kirk University, falls for her professor? This story gives us Diego’s point of view on it all, and made for some interesting reading.

Thank you, Diana Vale.

I Dream of Cassie: A Student-Teacher Age-Gap Romance by Diana Vale. I really enjoyed this romance. Its told from Diego’s point of view which is different and I really like that. Diego Valentine is going thru a rough patch in his life. He is going thru a rough divorce and trying to keep his head above water. While subbing for a pregnant Professor he begins to teach a class with a lovely young lady named Cassie Rodriguez. For some reason Diego can’t get Cassie out of his mind. He knows how inappropriate these feelings are but the more he tries not to think about her the more he does. Cassie is 18 but she seems so much more mature than the other 18 year olds. She is smart, confident and beautiful and she is also not staying away from Diego. What is he going to do? Will Diego risk everything to have Cassie or will he decide his life is full of enough drama with his long drawn out divorce? Read I Dream of Cassie to find out!
