Pushing the Limits by Brooke Cumberland
A forbidden and angsty stand-alone romance from USA Today bestselling author Brooke Cumberland about an art student who falls for her off-limits art professor…
He’s my art professor.
I’m his student.
With an electric connection and undeniable chemistry, I know it won’t be long until one of us cracks.
When the opportunity arose to pose nude for a life drawing workshop, I couldn’t help the thrill of knowing he’d be watching. While everyone else looked past me with their eyes narrowed and concentrated, drawing only the lines and angles of my body, he saw right through me down to my vulnerability.
Professor Hampton looked at me like he wanted to do more than look at me.
He saw more than just the physical aspects—he saw me.
How do we keep our distance when everything pulls us together?
What feels so right can only go wrong if we keep pushing the limits.

Pushing the Limits by Brooke Cumberland was my next book and I got to listen to this book on audio….it was soooo good. The narrators did a great job, I enjoyed it soooo much!!!
The book starts off with Aspen’s twin sisters funeral. Kind of a sad way to start off right 😭 but we quickly get through that and we now see Aspen in college.
She escapes from her grief and her family by going off to college to study Art.
This is where we meet professor Hampton..
Ohhh Mr. Morgan Hampton. 🔥
He connects with her by her drawings and he sees sadness in her drawings, he has had sadness in his life as well. He has been stalking her portfolio before classes have even started and he’s intrigued by her.
When Aspen left home and graduated from high school she knew she needed to get far away from her family after her sister passed away. She had tried therapy but didn’t want to talk so they got her into art. And that helped her express her sadness she was having for the loss of her sister. And that’s how she ended up at this college in California and into Professor Hampton’s class.
