The Lessons by Elizabeth Brown

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Question: What happens when a thirty-year-old virgin hires a sex surrogate to take care of her "little problem"?

Answer: Lots of laughs and tons of heat. You'll be left wanting a Dr. Ryan Andrews of your own.

My review:

The story was a novelty concept for me, but one I really enjoyed. I must admit that I have not researched sexual surrogates, but I am quite sure they exist. Therapy delves into so many subjects these days I would be utterly surprised if it didn’t fulfill the most primate needs of human beings.

That aside, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I thought all characters in this book were likable and realistic. The book was funny and emotional and just made a lovely, if unusual, love story.

Both Natalie and Ryan keep secrets from one another and should not continue any kind of professional relationship, but breaking the rules of professional therapy and facing the consequences is the lesser evil when compared to never seeing each other again.

This is an easy to follow story with just enough drama and depth to keep the reader going. Not too many twists so as a reader you are still able to keep your focus on the main point of this book, which is the blossoming forbidden fruit of an emotional relationship between a therapist and his client.

I liked it. A lot actually.

Another good book so many thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for the ARC of this book in return for this honest review.

My rating: 4/5
