I first became a fan of Elizabeth Brown's after reading her Determined trilogy. Her writing style appeals to me and she's capable of making me laugh every now and then. I was only four percent into this book when Natalie's reaction to seeing Ryan caused me to do just that.
Natalie's plan for her life is not turning out the way she wants it too. So she decides to make a change. She moves across the country and starts a new job. She only has one thing standing in her way. That one thing requires her to hire a sexual surrogate.
Josh's character was a pleasant addition to this story. Although, I don't know how I would've handled the situation with him at the beginning. Good thing Natalie's character is understanding. They really make a great team (of friends).
I recently read a book with a similar premise. I had a couple of deja vu moments, especially at the fifty-seven percent mark when the roommate situation was the same. However, believe me when I say that this book is unique and will keep any romance lover entertained.
Natalie and Ryan fit like a glove. You just know they won't be able to keep things professional. The anticipation of that moment where they just don't care anymore, will have you reading on. I would recommend this to any contemporary romance fan.
Things weren’t exactly going according to my Plan, so I did what most Americans do when confronted with a problem : I hired someone else to fix it.
Except ‘it’ was my virginity.
And that ‘someone else’ was a sex surrogate.
I should have known the answer wouldn’t be that simple.
The Lessons is a standalone forbidden-love romance told from dual POV with no cliffhanger.
Warning: This story contains mature humor, a lot of cursing, and of course, sexual situations. It is intended for adult readers who enjoy that kind of thing.
