Summary

Clara Wheaton is the consummate good girl: over-achieving, well-mannered, utterly predictable. When her childhood crush invites her to move across the country, the offer is too good to resist. Unfortunately, it's also too good to be true. 

Suddenly, Clara finds herself sharing a house 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 realises living with him might destroy the reputation she's spent years building. But while they may not agree on much, both Josh and Clara 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.

loved it!

Funny, witty and sexy! The perfect easy read which had me hooked from the start. Love the duel character chapters. Such a lovely feel good book which isn't afraid to broach the topic of sex, something I appreciated!

Clara is a character which is shy and doesn't know much about being active in the bedroom. Which some people would think "oh typical shy main character" but no, there are other women - Naomi for one, who enjoy sex. So I think this book does well to discuss lots of different peoples personalities.

It's written well with lots of meaning behind the story line.

Narrators were brilliant and made the story come to life. the first audiobook I've managed to get through.

Fun & Steamy

I wasn’t expecting much but thought the story was fun and the sex scenes were tantalising. Would definitely listen to more from this writer!

More steamy than I thought.

I was going for a light romantic comedy, but this was hotter than I thought and yet not erotic enough somehow. He's a porn actor, so... let's go from there. I enjoyed the story, a bit farfetched in general, they as a couple are not believable for me, but it was a pleasant listen.

Loved this!

Fab narration, fab story! One of my favourite listens of the summer, this made me smile, laugh, swoon and think. I love the relationship between the two main characters and can’t wait for the author’s next work to come to audio.

soppy nonsense

if you are interested in Mills and Boom nonsense then this book is for you, love interest without any depth, bit Disappointed only listened to it all out of shear boredom and I'd paid for it. clearly not my cup of tea.

Save your credit

I am not even sure why I finished this book.

Way overrated and I don’t get the hype. At all.

Narrating was meh as well.
