ISO: Ways to tame a grumpy professor who likes to throw things, growls commands, and is a decade older. Oh, and he’s also the boss. Asking for a friend.

Professor Gabriel Morgan is in southern Missouri for one reason: to repair his relationship with his brother. It is definitely not to make friends or coddle the teaching assistants the university throws at him. Benjamin Carter is young, barely competent, and more trouble than he’s worth. He’s also fun and charming and stunningly beautiful.

Gabriel’s goal of getting Benji to quit isn’t as easy as he expects. Instead of cowering, Benji either tells Gabriel exactly what he thinks or, worse still, flirts outrageously. It’s maddening and so very tempting.

Benji has no desire to be Professor Morgan’s latest failed TA, but grumpy older men are his weakness. And beneath that gruff exterior, Professor Morgan is sweet and good and so very passionate. Benji doesn’t do relationships; he has too much to lose. But for Gabriel he might just take that chance.

They’re both holding on to their secrets—Benji’s present and Gabriel’s past. But these things have a way of coming out. Is this thing between them real? And are they willing to risk everything to find out?

Rating:  Narration: B-; Content – C+

My (Not So) Grumpy Professor is a light-hearted grumpy/sunshine age-gap romance set on a fictional college campus in southern Missouri in which the titular professor and his likeable and upbeat TA butt heads (and then other body parts!) while trying not to fall in love. Both author and narrator are new-to-me, and while there’s nothing especially original in the story or outstanding about the narration, the audiobook was a pleasant enough way to spend a few hours while I was doing chores or otherwise pottering around. My (Not So) Grumpy Professor is book two in the My (Not So) University series, but although characters from the first book do appear, there’s enough information given here for this one to work as a standalone.

Environmental Science professor Dr. Gabriel Morgan has taken up a position at Southern Missouri State University in order to try to repair his fractured relationship with his brother, Dr. Reid Emmerson (who was one of the leads in book one, My (Not So) Slutty Professor). Reid and Gabriel have different fathers, and Reid is over a decade Gabriel’s junior; after Reid’s father left and their mother died, Gabriel, who had been away at college, returned home and took over the parental role, doing everything he possibly could to keep Reid happy and make sure he was well taken care of. But their relationship has been strained of late, and Gabriel wants – no, needs – to find a way to fix it.
