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 story. It is a well written story about a teacher and a student who are attracted to each other and after spending some time tutoring, they begin to fall for each other. Their relationship is a no no but you certainly don’t want to miss what happens with these two. I enjoyed watching their growth as well as their chemistry throughout the story. They made the story easy and entertaining to read. This is a fast paced story that is hard to put down. A shorter story that packs a punch in the romance department for sure. I really enjoyed this story and what the characters brought to the story. I highly recommend this book.

The story is a student-teacher romance where age is a factor or is it? This is the companion story to the first book Professor Valentine in the Kirk University series. This story is told from Diego’s POV. I love stories that are told in different POV’s because I feel the story is much rounder and in depth understanding of the characters. This is a very very short novella but getting the male perspective is a good addition to this tale. This is where it all began.
Cassie is off limits but that doesn’t stop him from wanting her. Beautiful doesn’t begin to describe her, but does he really need more in his life with his ex-wife and brother?

Forever Valentine: A Sequel to Professor Valentine (Kirk University Series, Book 6) by Diana Vale is another fantastic page turner by Ms. Vale. Forever Valentine is book six in Ms. Vale’s Kirk University Series, but in my personal opinion it is the best. Ms. Vale’s characters are amazing, an amazing plot, and I personally loved the different view points. While this book gives us more of a story about Cassie and Diego but we also meet Diego’s ex wife. Will she cause problems between Cassie and Diego? You’ll have to read Forever Valentine to find out.

I first met Professor Diego Valentine and his then student Cassie in ‘Professor Valentine (Kirk University Book 1)’ so I was looking forward to ‘catching up’ with them in this novella. This was a short and enjoyable read which picks up the story one year after the couple first met and fell in love. Diego and Cassie are now officially a couple but they soon learn that not everyone around them approves of them being in a relationship as Diego is Cassie’s ex-university professor. Despite plenty of complications including Diego’s drug addicted ex wife, Cassie studying to complete her psychology degree and wanting to enjoy university life, and of course the age gap between the pair, neither regret their relationship. However the pressure is effecting them and they have to choose whether their love for one another is enough to overcome the challenges or whether they are better off apart. By telling the story from both Diego and Cassie’s view point the author made the characters come alive and I felt engaged with them. I enjoyed seeing how their relationship had developed and I like how the author has written a realistic story where the couple do have ups and downs, but there is a guaranteed HEA.

Forever Valentine: A Sequel to Professor Valentine by Diana Vale is the sixth book in the Kirk University series. I would definitely suggest reading these in order as I think that is how you will get the most enjoyment out of them.
I thought this was a well written story that really centred around the characters. It was shorter than I was expecting it to be, even knowing it was a novella. Still it was an enjoyable story that I found myself getting invested in. It was good to see the challenges the characters faced and how they overcome them. The author has created a good book that that I enjoyed reading.

This is a quick and quirky read. Age can make a difference in a relationship or can it. Cassie and Kirk and a canny couple. I really like this short book. The characters developed very quickly over time and very relatable.

After reading Professor Valentine by Diana Vale, I couldn’t wait to jump into her sequel (book 6 in the series) Forever Valentine. The continuation of Diego and Cassie’s story. I love what Diana Vale has done with their love affair. Starting out as advisor and student, to a story about twin flames/love. The way Diana Vale develops her characters is done beautifully. The digging deeper into Diego and Cassie’s love is memorizing. With a wonderful supporting cast of minor characters throughout, Diego and Cassie have the love everyone wants. the undying and unyielding kind. I also the way the characters were able to persevere with all the obstacles presented to them, to test their love to the ultimate limit. I look forward to reading other books written by Diana Vale in the future!

Forever Valentine is the sequel to Professor Valentine (Book 1 in Kirk University) by Diana Vale. This age-gap fast-paced novella takes place months after Cassie and Diego have started their relationship. This couple goes through the normal things every relationship goes through, just added a little extra due to them being ex-professor/student plus an ex-wife poking her nose in. Overall this book was good and kept me intrigued but I will say I wish I had read the first book to understand the characters more (which I plan on doing).

Cassie and Diego are having a romance of the ages. She’s younger than him. He also comes with the baggage of a drug-addled ex-wife. If you like spicy, there’s some in here that will cause steam on your glasses. The characters are pretty well-written. Some of his brothers sounded like overgrown children. Her friends just sounded like silly students shrinking everyone against the female brain. There was a lot of action and noise on the pages which made it hard to follow the story at times. Overall, I would recommend it.
