Audible Review ~~ 18 by JA Huss


Eighteen (18): Based on a True Story

    • Written by: JA Huss
    • Narrated by: Ava Erickson
    • Length: 7 hrs and 12 mins
    • Unabridged Audiobook

Eighteen is hard. And so is Mateo Alesci. Hard to read, hard to predict, hard in every way that counts.

He wants things from me. Dirty things, nasty things, forbidden things. And I have to give in. His attention is completely inappropriate, but I can’t say no. The way he looks at me…the way he watches me through my bedroom window…the way he drags me deeper and deeper into his completely forbidden fantasy just…turns me on. He knows it turns me on. He holds all the power. He holds all the cards. He holds my entire future in his hands.

And I have to give in. Because Mr. Alesci is my teacher. And I need everything he’s offering.

I have read a few books by JA Huss and I am always entertained and left feeling a little, how to say this nicely, a bit hot and bothered.

I am not always a fan of the student/teacher books or a book that has such a huge age gap. But I have faith in JA Huss so I jumped in.

I was a bit taken back by the foul mouth on Mr. Alesci and how this young lady has gotten herself into the situation she’s in with him.

Her home life is an absolute cluster fuck. No parents, sister died of an overdose leaving her with her brother in law and niece. She has no one, no one to care for her, no one to rely on. By chance, her night school teacher shows her he cares, but the way in which he teaches her and his methods are what some might say are – unconventional.

I felt a bit uncomfortable with the relationship at first. Shannon just listens to everything Mateo (Mr. Alesci) says. She wants to say no – but she’s compelled to listen.  There is just this need to listen and obey…

Once I saw their relationship for what it was I fell in love with this book! It may have a bit of a taboo theme for some, but it’s so much more than that. A few twists and turns keep me listening.

The narrator was spot on for this book.

Take the time to listen to this audible and make sure you listen to End of Book shit with JA Huss when you are done!
