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.

Very heartwarming novel about 2 people working hard to overcome a lifelong history of abuse and neglect. I enjoyed the story immensely and look forward to reading other stories by Amelia Kingston.
Such an easy read and I really enjoyed it
I really enjoyed the plot and characters, I honestly couldn’t put it down at some points. It was an easy read and didn’t take me long. Although some of the reviews say the plot was too simple and cliché, I personally wouldn’t agree (I kinda knew what the ending would be) but it was an enjoyable read and I would recommend it.
I appreciate Amelia Kingston as a writer. For one thing, you don’t notice you’re reading her book, you only notice the story itself which speaks to how well written it is. I’m not talking about grammar and vocabulary which is usually the first thing literary critics would poopoo a work for lacking. There’s a time and place for it. But who doesn’t want to be swept away by a story? I mean, that’s kinda the whole point, right? And Amelia Kingston does that in this book. Another thing I really like about her writing, she makes me laugh and giggle out loud and even gasp in surprise or shock at the heartbreak of a situation or words spoken. That’s something you don’t get from every writer. As someone who has read an ABUNDANCE of books and loves to read, I will be hoping that more of her titles will deliver the same sweeping away as this book accomplished for me. Because in the end, we all want to read the kind of book that will make you turn each page dying to know what will happen next and read the last one with that wonderful feeling of having experienced the the whole journey and wishing it didn’t have to end. Right on, Amelia!
