The Lessons by Elizabeth Brown
What happens when a thirty-year-old virgin hires a sex surrogate to take care of her “little problem”?
I decided to read The Lessons on a whim because the premise sounded really intriguing. At the age of thirty Natalie hasn’t lost her virginity and she decides to take it into her own hands. Hiring a company with a sexual surrogate, the process takes her through her physical and emotional issues behind why she hasn’t been intimate with anyone yet. By chance she met Ryan, her surrogate before her sessions in a more normal setting. As time goes by there are undeniable feelings between them, but breaking the contract is more complicated than you would think.
I really liked that the author would go behind the emotional issues behind why Natalie got to this point in her life and it’s entirely believable. She had a very hard time opening herself up to others based on her foster youth past and it got to a point where her age just made it worse.
I didn’t really connect with this book because I felt the heroine was very oblivious and the hero just seemed a little too good to be true. I would have enjoyed this more if the characters had been a bit more memorable. I enjoyed myself as I read this book, but I would not reread it again.
