Synopsis:
A painfully awkward love story.

Incomprehensibly awkward Elizabeth Wilde is desperate for love. Connection. Intimacy. After a lifetime of romantic failures, the twenty-one-year-old gamer realizes she needs help. Professional help. She needs…

A sex tutor.

The devastatingly hot jock Austin Jacobs is just the man for the job. As the reigning campus sex god, he has the playboy act down pat. But underneath those six-pack abs beats a broken heart. He doesn’t trust people and he sure as hell doesn’t believe in love.

The odd couple strike a deal. Four weeks of ‘tutoring’ for five thousand dollars.

When Austin coaxes Elizabeth out from behind her computer screen, the attraction they feel is undeniable. They’re both a little broken, but somehow their jagged edges fit. And when their world comes tumbling down on top of them, they each have to decide if this weird thing called love is worth fighting for.

My Review:

So  I was lucky enough to get to read this earlier this year as a beta reader/critique partner, and when I saw that it was getting published I immediately had to sign up and read the finished story.  And just like when I read it before, I loved it. The characters, the banter, the emotion, all of it was great.

And it wasn’t just those things, I loved the sexy times as well!  I loved the main character Elizabeth, I really could connect with her on the nerdiness and awkwardness.  And then there’s Austin, sigh.  I just really would like an Austin of my own.  Sexy, smart, funny, sweet, and a good cook!  Not sure what else is needed!  I liked that for the most part, even when one did something to the other one that was rude or something, the way they went about figuring things out wasn’t way dramatic.  It totally made sense. Although there was a time or two I’d have walked away from Austin.  I was totally with Elizabeth when she would call him an ass.  He totally deserved it. They came up with great nicknames, Goose and Maverick.  

Finally, the epilogue was one of the best I’ve read to a story in a long time.  It wasn’t too much, and it fit the whole story and characters perfectly.  I really liked this book a lot, and can’t wait to read more by the author!  Hoping the next book will be about Jessie, or Barbie, as Elizabeth first called her.  

 

About Amelia Kingston:

Amelia Kingston is many things, the most interesting of which are probably California girl, writer, traveler, and dog mom. She survives on chocolate, coffee, wine, and sarcasm. Not necessarily in that order.

She’s been blessed with a patient husband who’s embraced her nomad ways and traveled with her to over 30 countries across 5 continents (I’m coming for you next, Antarctica!). She’s also been cursed with an impatient (although admittedly adorable) terrier who pouts when her dinner is 5 minutes late.

She writes about strong, stubborn, flawed women and the men who can’t help but love them. Her irreverent books aim to be silly and fun with the occasional storm cloud to remind us to appreciate the sunny days. As a hopeless romantic, her favorite stories are the ones that remind us all that while love is rarely perfect, it’s always worth chasing.

    Why I love my new adult romances, I have to admit that lately I haven't really been enjoying the explicit scenes in them so much. So knowing they were good here has me curious!

      They were pretty explicit in this one, which I actually do like, so maybe you won't? You'll have to try, the story itself is so good! Thanks for stopping by!
