Book Review: The Lessons by Elizabeth Brown

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.

Warning: This story contains mature humor, a lot of cursing, and of course, sexual situations. It’s intended for adult readers who enjoy that kind of thing.
Sexual Surrogate (Definition): A sexual surrogate, sometimes called a surrogate partner, is a member of a sex therapy team consisting of client(s), supervising therapist, and surrogate. Some couples attend sexual surrogacy sessions together, while some people (either single or in a couple) attend them alone. The surrogate engages in education and often intimate physical contact and/or sexual activity with clients to achieve a therapeutic goal. - Wikipedia
Dual POV with no cliffhanger.
Stand-alone book 1 in The Off-Limits series.


I thought the independence that Natalie starts off with was awesome. Moving to a new city, starting a new job and putting yourself out there are all things that can be difficult to some and doing them all at once was definitely the way to go for her. The connection she had with the guy at the library was on point and then the book went downhill from there for me.

Luckily the author and story kept me engaged and I continued to read it. I did want to see how the story panned out. I just didn't think the story was as strong as it could have been and a lot of the situations people would find humorous were either lost on me or irritating more than comical to the story.

I thought it was edited well and Ryan was good book boyfriend material. There is a second book that involves Ryan's little sister AND best friend. I'm adding that to my TBR and maybe it'll be like other companion novels that end up being better than the first book for me!
