The Wheatons are infamous among the east coast elite for their lack of impulse control, except for their daughter Clara. Shes the consummate socialite: over-achieving, well-mannered, predictable. But every Wheaton has their weakness. When Claras childhood crush invites her to move cross-country, the offer is too tempting to resist. Unfortunately, its 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 perceptivenot to mention handsomefor comfort, but theres a good chance he and Clara could have survived sharing a summer sublet if she hadnt 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 Wheatons 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 theyre lucky, theyll help everyone else get lucky too.

I loved this slow-burn romance. Also, the supporting characters were developed. ( )

This is a VERY VERY VERY x-rated book and I did not know that before I got it.

Cute cover and roommates to romance was enough for me to assume that I’d like it. Was NOT counting on the main character to be a porn actor nor did I expect the plot to revolve around creating a new kind of porn website. So yeah, LOTS of sex scenes, lots of talk about sex and sex workers.

The whole message of the book is that sex is not shameful and sex workers are real people and not degenerates. So good message and not typical of a romance novel but not completely my cup of tea either.

(edited to change my first sentence: at first I called it a dirty book but lesson learned: sex is not dirty! Words matter!)

Talk about a 180 degree switch, this is what happens to Clara when she finally decides to face her feelings about Everett, the boy, now a man, who she's crushed on for the last fourteen years. After abandoning a safe and straight laced career that would dovetail with her advanced degree in art, to see what might happen with him in Los Angeles, she's dumped almost as soon as she arrives. He's rented out the room she was to have to some gut named Josh, and is going on tour with his band. Clara's left to figure out her life as well as how to get along with the mysterious guy renting the room.
When she discovers that he's a very popular porn star, she's initially shocked and a bit put off, but those feelings change to curiosity and intrigue. Once the sparks between them kindle to a slow burn, things get extremely interesting. Josh feels increasingly frustrated by the confines and pitiful pay from the contract he signed with a very shady production company.
When Clara makes an impulsive decision to back a completely new enterprise, one that hopefully will create educational sex videos that will help women have better orgasms and both sexes shed shame, it's the start of a most interesting journey. It includes her discovering just how well her body responds under the right circumstances, threats from the baddies at his former studio, and a complete turnaround in a tight race for D.A. in the city. Very satisfying in both the steam and story line departments. ( )

It's not a bad book, it just wasn't for me.
Girl from a rich socialite family is set to move across the country where no one knows her name, with a friend from childhood that she has been crushing on forever. Dude happens to be an asshole and instead he goes off on tour with his band and leaves her to room with a stranger who he found online last minute. (Seriously sketchy as shit, but for the sake of the story our guy is a good guy).
Our guy has a job that is..uh shall we say, frowned upon in polite society. So our girl is now at risk of scandal by just living in the same house. And then it just tumbles from there.

I like the idea of how it ends, just not how it was written how it ends. Perhaps because I have no connection to a socialite or upper east coast family so our FMC and I did not connect. I was more connected to the MMC and like his whole story in everything. I liked his part of the story for sure.

This had been on top of my tbr folder for a very long time and I am excited I finally got to read it :) It tells the story of Clara and Josh who happens to be in the adult entertainment industry. It was a fun read but if I am being very honest the standouts in the book were Naomi (her book is already on my list for next year) and the steamy scenes.

Fundamentally there was just something slightly missing in the OTP's relationship development. I liked their banter but never got the emotional connection fully. I can't believe that I am complaining that a couple fell in love too quickly but I am? LOL. I also wish we had seen some more fall-out from Clara's folks seeing how much their approval had influenced her all her life.

All in all, a good book which I'm sure fans of romances should enjoy.

When the man of her dreams ran a hand across his devastatingly handsome face and said, "I have to tell you something, and I don't want you to freak out," Clara Wheaton considered, for the first time, the alarming possibility that she could get dumped by someone she'd never managed to date.
