SummaryCassius Rice, A.K.A., Cash has not been doing well in his classes for over a year. With one semester to go, his father cut him off, leaving Cash out of luck. With no other options, he took up an offer that he later regretted. Sleep with his professor and record it, then he would have the money to obtain his college degree. 
Simple enough for Cash. 
What he did not expect was the Professor’s Teaching Assistant to block his efforts nor did he expect the underground fighting world to be so lucrative. All he wanted was to accomplish his quest and graduate. 

The F Student wasn't exactly what I expected. When I first read the blurb I was interested (hence the reason for requesting to be put on the tour), however it wasn't really what I wanted the book to be. The book is from a male point of view, which I have never read a NA book from before, so I'm not really sure if it was just that, but then I wasn't really a big fan of the writing style to be honest. And especially with it being such a short novella really, I expected more, especially because of all the high class short novella's I have read in the last year.

The book follows Cash, an average student at college, however when his brother dies, his life completely changes, causing his only real passion to be his love of older women. And when his father see's his grades dropping, he cuts him off, causing him to have to find a quick way to pay the rest of $20,000 owed before the end of term in order to graduate. Whilst looking for ways to get this income, he is the offered the chance to receive all of the money in return for sleeping with one of his professors and filming it. However, he soon finds the professor's TA is exactly what he needs in his life.


Overall, I believe The F Sudent was an okay read, and if it was slightly longer, I believe it would have allowed us to  connect with the characters a lot more, and given them added depth. 


I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys reading short NA novels, from a male point of view. Who enjoys incredibly short reads.
