From college coed to a professor's naughty bride...
It’s the 1950s. Never much interested in her studies, Margaret Atwater attends college hoping to graduate with an Mrs. degree instead of a bachelor’s. When she catches the eye of English Professor Henry Thurston, she’s thrilled to marry him, drop out of school, and begin a new life as a married woman and faculty wife. However, Henry is a kinky man who has much to teach his eager young bride—in, and out, of the bedroom. As Mrs. Henry Thurston, Margaret’s sexual education has just begun.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 18 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Set in the 50s, Margaret Atwater attends college to hopefully find a husband. She succeeds by winning the heart of Professor Henry Thurston, and the two wed after a semester of seeing each other in secret. The rest of the story is mainly about the couple’s adventure in the marriage bed, with lots of spanking, and a few encounters with sex toys.

The story had potential, but it ended before it could show more. Educating His Bride begun with Margaret and Henry a few weeks away from getting married, so it was a bit difficult to engage with the characters’ romantic relationship. I understand that the story focused on Margaret and Henry, but the conflicts introduced weren’t settled. What happened to Alice and her husband? How about Dorothy? Would Rosemary ever find out about her husband? It seems the world would never know. The story ended even before they were answered.

I can see why there would be an appeal in erotic stories set in the 50s or earlier since the culture then was more subdued, and anything that lacks propriety is looked down upon. The repressive beliefs and standards are good fuel for steamy sex.
