  1. 4 stars Review completed February 19, 2013Sometimes you have to take a chance on love.The Education of Sebastian is about a summer of stolen happiness A summer also filled with love, bliss, hope, fear, and recklessness But it ended badly.Caroline is married to a US Navy medical officer who is a lot older than her She was very young when she met him and he swept her off her feet instantly After a while, however, she realized that she was in for an uninspiring and unkind life The sex was desultory [...]


  2. I love you, Caro I want to make love to you I want to make love to you forever This book made my heart RACE.It was a captivating story of forbidden love.I m still recovering from the huge cliffhanger ending and most definitely planning to go straight on to book 2.I gotta say I was a little hesitant going into this one because of the huge age gap between the hero and heroine For the record, Sebastian is 17 4 months shy of 18 , and Caroline is 30 and unhappily married I kind of wavered back and fo [...]


  3. Two final pages.First reaction Second reaction image error Excuse my small outburstI m sure if you read those pages you will have the exact same reactions.However, in order not to finish this frantic display of negative emotions in such a manner let me conclude with this.Sebastian and Caro Anywhere Nowhere Somewhere I don t care just as long as it s with you When I hear her voice, the world disappearsWhen I hear her voice, I have no fears.She takes away the sadness, she takes away the painShe t [...]

  5. You ve brought me to life and you ll never know how much I owe you because of that I know I am going to sound a bit like a broken record as many people have judged this book without reading it and I to had an opinion before reading it As a Mother of a 17 year old son, I thought ugh no way this can work but then I remembered going into On The Island with much hesitation and completely loving the book So I began the story of Caroline and Sebastian a truly enthralling story of forbidden love.Both C [...]

Painful, beautiful and heartrending This is a beautifully written love story that grabbed my heart and never let go.I really loved the two characters Sebastian Caroline image error He lifted my chin with his fingers to make me look into his eyes There s nothing to forgive, he said, his voice forceful We fell in love it s not a crime The love story between Sebastian and Caroline was totally believable for me I have a cousin, who at 18 met and fell in love with a lovely, not happily married woman [...]


  9. Intense Passionate Engaging Riveting Romantic I began this book with much skepticism due to the underage hero along with the vast differences between his age and that of the heroine She s thirty, in a loveless marriage and he has a few months before his eighteenth birthday I would never have dreamed how much I would enjoy their journey It s riveting, intense, powerful, passionate and one of my most captivating reads this year There are circumstances that have made Sebastian Hunter mature beyond [...]

  15. Well, that was a bit of a roller coaster Was very wary about starting this I mean I have a son who is nearly 17 did I want to go down that road in this book It had things that I do not like in books, infidelity, underage sex But I saw the great reviews by a lot of friends and I know their taste is good so went for it I really liked it Yes, the age thing did bother me a bit he is 17, she is 30, he is legally under the age of consent I know in America it is different ages in different States But i [...]


  16. 4.5 4.75 Stars Meet Sebastian CarolineHe kissed me with sudden ferocity, covering my face and throat with hard, burning kisses His weight pinned me down as I ran my hands across the taut muscles of his back and shoulders I love you, he growled That s all that matters When I came across this book, I wanted to read it like ASAP The only thing that stopped me was that I knew it ended in a cliffhanger, so I waited for the release of the second book As soon as book two was released, I was all over it [...]


  17. This is NOT my type of romance I do NOT usually read books that involve an age difference like this story That said, a good friend recommended, so I read.I LOVED this story It s than the sexual relationship It s about love and maturity It s about finding that ONE person, despite external forces being NOT in your favor.My advice give it a chance I m glad I did.


  18. Rules are for the obedience of fools and the guidance of wise men Just wow This book completely blew me away and left me so raw I didn t know what to expect from this book but it wasn t this I am floored It gripped me and wouldn t let me go I couldn t put it down Couldn t get away from it.The Education of Sebastian has been on my TBR since its release and I was seeing great things about it Although part of me wanted to read it, I was hesitant because of Sebastian s age The idea of a 30 year old [...]


  19. Even if this had been the most well written, touching book complete with hidden depths, I think you d be hard pressed to stop your brain from screaming three things at you the entire time you re reading it and that is HE S 17 and SHE S MARRIED and HE S 17 The writing is good it hooked me in right away just from the first few pages where we are introduced to Caroline, a woman who is caught in a loveless, unhappy marriage to a cold and selfish man The author captured Caroline s silent, accepting d [...]



  20. 4.5 STARSOMG What an ending I need to read the second book, Pronto Thank God I have it PHEW Rules are for the obedience of fools and the guidance of wise men There is nothing to forgive, he said, his voice forceful We fell in love It s not a crime Caroline is 30 years old and in a loveless marriage to a US Navy Medical Officer Sebastian is a 17 year old high school graduate, just four months away from 18 They met when Sebastian was just 8 years old and this is when he started to fall in love wit [...]


  21. This is a book in which some could possibly say the storyline is some what taboo s the story of Sebastian and Caroline he s 17 and she s 30e s also married Yea I know sounds bad however the story is absolutely beautiful and you would just have to read the book to understand Sebastian met Caroline when he was only 8 years old and his love for her began at that point However Caroline moved away for 10 years and when she came back little Sebastian wasn t so little any So they met again for the seco [...]


  22. 5 STARS, A MUST READ I ll start off by saying there is no review I can write that will do this book justice This is the love of story Caroline and Sebastian The first they meet is when he is 8 and she s 21 Several years later they meet again when he s four months shy of his 18th birthday and Caroline is 30 When they meet again there is an instant connection that Caroline tries to fight because of their age difference and her marriage.In the end their love was not to be denied and she gave in to [...]


  23. This is for my fellow buddy readers Whoa That ending, this book and these characters just blew me away This book has been lurking in my TBR for quiet sometime and I m so happy that I finally picked it up I wasn t sure if I could get into the age difference between Caroline and Sebastian, but it was a non issue Their story was so well written and fleshed out that I just got lost in it Slowly, I fell for Sebastian right along with Caroline My heart was sad for the marriage she found herself in and [...]


  24. Oh I can not believe they ended it there But I am so glad to see the story will be continuing I was recommended this book by a friend and am so glad she did so The Education Of Sebastian was a brilliant story about self discovery and love Carolina is a 30 year old woman in a very unhappy, loveless marriage with David He is a horrible man who hasn t the time of day for her, unless it is to order her around like a slave And not the sexy kind of slave either One summer they find themselves moving b [...]

  26. FOUR SOLID A SUMMER OF STOLEN HAPPINESS STARSThis story was really lovely I am in love with this couple, especially Sebastian The only reason I did not give this five stars was the ending and, well, because I didn t like the initial way they met As you know from the blurb, when Caroline and Sebastian embark or their love affair, he is seventeen and she is thirty However, they first meet ten years earlier, when she is twenty and he is just eight Don t get me wrong here, there was no inkling of an [...]


  27. There s nothing to forgive We fell in love it s not a crime FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK I have been completely blown away by this book Holy freaking intensity This is the story of a forbidden love story between a 30 year old married woman and a 17 year old boy It possibly sounds a little gross, but I have to say, even if in my head I knew it was wrong, it didn t feel wrong It is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL love story, and I was completely swept away I fell in love with Sebastian right alongside Caroline He is [...]


  28. If you don t have an open mind on the subject of forbidden love with a minor and infedility then this story will not be for you The blurb says it all Don t say you were appalled and that you didn t know what you were getting into There is nothing creepy about this story The way I saw it was as a life and sexual awakening with a thirty year old woman Carlolina who is in a loveless marriage and with a seventeen year old virgin teenager Sebastian who has been emotionally, mentally and physically ab [...]


  29. Rating Clarification 4.5 stars Okay the ending just blew me away I had a feeling it would be heartbreaking but had no idea how much it would effect me It shredded my heart into pieces Be prepared You will want to have the next book on hand so that you can see how the story continues and what happens to this amazing couple.This was a really good story and one I would recommend to readers I know some people are concerned about the age difference however it really didn t bother me It had such a bea [...]
