Love isn't a perfect science . . .
Naomi Grant has built a life around going against the grain. When the sex-positive start-up she co-founded becomes an international sensation, her responsibilities shift from the bedroom to the boardroom. Ready to conquer new worlds, Naomi wants to extend her platform to live lecturing, but higher education won't hire her.
Ethan Cohen has recently received two honours: LA Mag named him one of the city's hottest bachelors and he became rabbi of his own synagogue. Unfortunately, his shul is low on both funds and congregants so the board gives him three months to turn things around or they'll close the doors for good.
Together, Naomi and Ethan host a buzzy seminar series on Modern Intimacy, the perfect solution to their problems - until they discover a new one - their growing attraction to each other. They've built the syllabus for love's latest experiment, but neither of them expected they'd be the ones putting it to the test . . .

'Warmly funny and gorgeously sexy' The New York Times Book Review
A rabbi and a porn star turned sex educator walk into a classroom: it sounds like the start of a joke, but it's the intriguing basis for the mostly charming latest from Danan (The Roommate). When Naomi Grant and Ethan Cohen cross paths at a teaching conference, Ethan proposes they work together on a seminar in modern intimacy at his synagogue. To a young rabbi with a shrinking (and aging) congregation, Naomi's charisma and expertise look like a godsend to entice new members. To Naomi, who associates organized religion with shame, Rabbi Ethan's model looks, sweet demeanor, and commitment to his faith spell danger. So though she's been searching for an opportunity to put her master's in social psychology to use, her initial answer is no. Though Naomi and Ethan eventually make an excellent team, external resistance and internal conflicts continually get in the way, and some of the conflict doesn't entirely gel. Naomi's bravado masks lingering hurts over being shamed for her sexuality as a teen, and the logic of how that formative experience led to Naomi's career in adult entertainment veers on cliched rather than convincing. Still the original setup and endearing characters largely make up for the flaws of this slow-burning romance. Agent: Jessica Watterson, Sandra Dijkstra Literary. \n
