Description

"Danan is becoming a go-to author." (New York Times Book Review)

Naomi and Ethan will test the boundaries of love in this provocative romance from the author of the ground-breaking debut, The Roommate.

Naomi Grant has built her life around going against the grain. After the sex-positive start-up she cofounded becomes an international sensation, she wants to extend her educational platform to live lecturing. Unfortunately, despite her long list of qualifications, higher ed won't hire her.

Ethan Cohen has recently received two honors: LA Mag nominated him as one of the city's hottest bachelors and he became rabbi of his own synagogue. Low on both funds and congregants, the executive board of Ethan's new shul hired him with the hopes that his nontraditional background will attract more millennials to the faith. They've given him three months to turn things around or else they'll close the doors of his synagogue for good.

Naomi and Ethan join forces to 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.

Ce que les critiques en disent

"The Roommate is a book about people expanding into their best possible selves - about embracing pleasure, loving unabashedly and fighting exploitation and small-mindedness." (New York Times Book Review)

"This follow-up to Danan’s steamy 2020 debut The Roommate is filled with humor, healing, and heady good times (and, yes, that is a naughty pun)." (Vulture

“I could cry about how much I love Naomi and Ethan. Rosie Danan’s writing brims with compassion and wit, and there’s a tenderness that runs underneath everything - even when her characters are positive they’re not falling for each other. A stunning, subversive romance that made me proud to be Jewish.” (Rachel Lynn Solomon, author of The Ex Talk)

loved this.

full review on my Goodreads HS Paisley, but in short, this book was awesome.

the chemistry between the characters was great. I really fell in love with Ethan and Naomi. The narrators were also great, I may or may not have fallen in love with them too.

though this novel does follow some of the normal tropes of the genre, I rarely see novels so sex positive and inclusive. this book is the second in the series, and better than the first one. I highly recommend it.

Story is okay.

The story was just okay. I feel like they tried to develop the characters, but it didn’t seem believable.

so damn good

Honestly, this book is awesome. This author does such a good job of creating characters that are realistic, that have flaws that everyone has (insecurities, building walls, etc). The female characters are empowering and strong, and when they face challenges they are self-sufficient. I love stories where there characters remind me of myself or people I know, and these characters do. Many of the characters did work in the sex industry (and kudos to Danan for normalizing/humanizing a group of people that are neglected by society), and brought to the forefront of how people in these professions are often treated as unworthy and degraded, as well as the assumptions that are made about their character.

Based on this book and The Roommate, Danan also wonderfully depicts what a healthy relationship looks like. Yes, this book obviously contains sex- but it’s not like other romcoms where the steamy scenes seems to be the primary focus of the story (where the portions between those scenes are lackluster and you could easily skim over). This story goes into the realities of intimacy, the good, bad, and ugly.

Can’t wait to read whatever this author publishes next - even if it’s outside the realm of her previous two novels.

Great story line. Poor narrator's.

Narrators were too stoic. Sometimes it was even hard to tell apart the male or female character.

Loved the feminist themes

But I just needed more romance for this to be a five star for me. In terms of character development it was a definite five but a 3 on the romance. The lead heroine was a sex positive heroine and smart and the hero was sweet and protective. They were a good pair!

Such a breathe of fresh air!

I loved this book from the first sentence. It was so raw and authentic. The author did such a great job of making this book almost unimaginable, but because she has such skill in character development, it made me feel like I knew them or wanted to at least have a coffee with these two. Read this book, seriously if you love a story that defies odds and comes together in a predictable but also unorthodox way, you’ll eat this book up like I did. Also the sex scene alone was so good, it was honest but crazy town erotic. You may not feel that way, but for a mother/school teacher, it was the perfect balance of sexy and believable.
