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.


  • Slow but good

    I Liked the book but almost put it down from how slow it builds but I’m glad I kept reading it because I couldn’t put it down towards the end.
  • A New Perspective

    By RockNRazorz
    As a 26 year-old avid reader of spicy books, I found this title to be both surprisingly sexy and brainy. Most books in this genre tend to lack plot, and overflow with sexual innuendo. Where as, this one has a pleasant balance, even with one of its sole focuses being that of an adult performer. It amped up the anticipation to make the metaphorical and physical climax of the story really pack a punch. This was an excellent read!
  • I wanted to love it but it fell short

    By Kendiiscoo
    Was it readable? Yes. Steamy? Absolutely, but something lacked in the overall writing. I liked the characters but the plot wasn’t as developed as I wanted and the ending felt anticlimactic. Again, totally readable, but not worthy of 5 stars.
  • Love it

  • Definitely worth a read!

    By TayEast
    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

    By merrrrrcat
    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!!!
