The Wheatons are infamous among the east coast elite for their lack of impulse control, except for their daughter Clara. She’s the consummate socialite: over-achieving, well-mannered, predictable. But every Wheaton has their weakness. When Clara’s childhood crush invites her to move cross-country, the offer is too tempting to resist. Unfortunately, it’s also too good to be true.

After a bait-and-switch, Clara finds herself sharing a lease with a charming stranger. Josh might be a bit too perceptive—not to mention handsome—for comfort, but there’s a good chance he and Clara could have survived sharing a summer sublet if she hadn’t looked him up on the Internet...
Once she learns how Josh has made a name for himself, Clara realizes living with him might make her the Wheaton’s most scandalous story yet. His professional prowess inspires her to take tackling the stigma against female desire into her own hands. They may not agree on much, but Josh and Clara both believe women deserve better sex. What they decide to do about it will change both of their lives, and if they’re lucky, they’ll help everyone else get lucky too.

    This is definitely a sex positive book which I think is nice. The chemistry between Josh and Clara is great. Sometimes Clara can be annoying but she definitely grew on me. The spicy scenes are written great a lot of teasing except for when they finally do the do that was a little underwhelming and the only reason I didn’t give 5 stars.
  • cute rom-com

    i did enjoy reading this book! i love the sex positivity, the banter between clara & josh, their sexual tensssssion. however i wish there would have been more detail & descriptions in like 70% of the scenes. i felt like i didn’t even know what clara looked like for a quarter of the book. i did enjoy naomis character and it intrigues me to read the next book in the series.

    This book balances the spice and the plot that every adult romance reader wants to see. Reading this book gave me such a close and in depth perspective of the characters and made me fall in love!
  • MUST READ!!!

    I’m inquiring on how I obtain my own personal Josh? Do I have to order him or ...? But seriously, a great feel good book that had my blushing & laughing the whole way.
