Review by Maimeo's Angels: Solid Education by Bianca Sommerland

Gage Tackett comes off as a bad boy—detached and maybe a little dangerous. Definitely not Vet Sciences Professor Derek Paulson’s type. When Gage arrives at Derek’s veterinary clinic with a frostbitten stray dog, Derek realizes his most difficult student has a few things to teach him. Things he’s more than willing to learn.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. 

Firstly I have to say that when I see the name Bianca Sommerland, it is an automatic purchase. Her writing style is amazing and I have loved her other series. 
Solid Education is an M/M story which I thoroughly enjoyed. It tells the story of uptight and serious Vet Science professor Derek Paulson and his student Gage Tackett.
Derek initially appears extremely judgmental of the tough and often brooding Gage. However when Gage rescues a dog who is in distress and takes him to the nearest veterinarian, he is shocked to find it is his professor Derek.  
Gage names the dog Matty, primarily because of the condition he finds the dog in. Matty becomes the bridge that links Derek and Gage initially. However the attraction that Derek and Gage feel for each 
other soon has them entering into a relationship. Gage suffers flashbacks and leaves their bed nightly to seek out Matty who reminds him of his previous dog Gunner, who was killed when Gage was wounded and retired from the military.
Derek will do almost anything to ensure that Gage is well rested and sleeps with him and is not above bribing Matty onto his bed. I think it was at that moment that I realised how much Derek cares for Gage. 
I really loved both these characters and the way that they brought the best out in each other. I enjoyed reading Derek and Gage’s story, the sex was hot and this was a great romance, through and through.
I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good M/M story that is a fairly quick read.

Bianca Sommerland was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec. When not reading neurotically or writing as though the fate of the world rests on her keyboard, she is either watching hockey or teaching her daughters the beauty of a classic, steel pony while reminiscing about her days in Auto Body Mechanics.

Her time is balanced with utmost care between normal family life, and the internal paranormal realm where her characters reside. For the most part, she succeeds.
