*~*~* 4 Stars *~*~* 

Illicit by Ava Harrison was definitely a book I was looking forward to reading. Give me a good student/teacher romance any day of the week, and I’ll devour it. However, this one sort of fell flat for me.
The beginning of the book started off amazing, the first 50-60% to be precise. Ava introduced two main characters and both were shown as young but mature. They both have been through a lot in their short time, but they instantly connected. Add in the forbidden romance, and I thought, wow this is going to be a great read.
But after I kept reading, it seemed too much started happening and things sort of took a turn for the worst. I’m a firm believer that too much drama, angst, or even an immature heroine can bring the book down. And that’s what happened for me. Lynn just wasn’t what I thought and some of the situations showed her age. Even though it seemed in the first part she was way more mature, but she really wasn’t. She’s just like any other typical teenager, and some of the things she would do I just couldn’t look over. Carson was almost the same way. For a guy that was older and knew better, he still kept making the same mistakes over and over. Like I said, there was a lot happening in the last part and maybe that’s why I felt disappointed.

Overall, Illicit was a good book, but it wasn’t great. I just felt the characters started off so good, but then they back tracked so much. Characters are supposed to grow, not go backwards. The ending is what really saved this book for me. I just wish the flow of the beginning of the book was the same for the entire book.
