What You Need to Know About Student-Teacher Romance Books
While the genre can be considered taboo by many, student-teacher romance tropes in romance books, remain popular.
It might have something to do with a reader’s fantasy regarding something that most people avoid or prevent in real life, especially the forbidden nature of the relationship between the teacher and the student.
Readers enjoy the various possibilities found in student-teacher romance books: A graduate student falls for a history teacher, for example, or a literature professor finds love from a creative writing class student.
Read on to learn more about this genre and why the secret school sweethearts and age gap between characters have sophisticated charm despite the sensitive subject matter.
1. What is the student-teacher romance trope?
Some also call this trope forbidden romance, featuring the power play between student and teacher. It is not uncommon to see how their daily interactions and normal life turn into an affair. For instance, a college professor pursuing a romantic relationship after a chance tropical island tutoring stint.
Usually, one character has authority over the other, creating an uneven power dynamic between those in the relationship.
Some readers might also find this romance unsettling, especially if set in high school, but not so much when both teachers and students are older. For example, a 31-year-old professor going on a heart-stopping first date with a grad student is considered more acceptable by conservative readers.
2. Is this “age gap romance” always forbidden?
No. The forbidden romance ones with the whirlwind romance are only those with a significant age gap.
Most readers prefer student-teacher romance novels with characters being closer in age. In this case, readers tend to view the budding intriguing passion with a more welcoming attitude.
3. What else can I expect from these types of books?
We guarantee that you will find variety in these types of books. For one, readers become immersed in a mix of school settings: community college, graduate school, and the like.
These teacher student romance books can have almost every iteration possible: an English teacher sharing amazing slam poetry moments with a brilliant writing student.
You can have a history teacher having his crappy life turned upside down by romance or a 28-year-old calculus teacher sharing creative and intimate ways to solve math problems.
Readers can also choose novels depending on their teachers’ preferences and gender. Some books feature a high school teacher and even teaching assistants.
So whether it’s “Gabriel’s Rapture” by Sylvain Reynard that you want to pick up first or about to introduce yourself to well-known characters in the genre like Emeric Marceaux or Julia Mitchell, you might just be in for a new guilty pleasure if this something that floats your boat.
Just remember: it’s okay to enjoy these stories while also being mindful of real-life situations, such as the affairs being taboo behavior under teachers’ code of ethics. It’s okay to enjoy fantasy and romance once in a while, with the caveat that it does not mean one tolerates the taboo in real life.
