Description
House Rules: Do your own dishes Knock before entering the bathroom Never look up your roommate online The Wheatons are infamous among the east coast elite for their lack of impulse control, except for their daughter Clara. She's the consummate socialite: over-achieving, well-mannered, predictable. But every Wheaton has their weakness. When Clara's childhood crush invites her to move cross-country, the offer is too much to resist. Unfortunately, it's also too good to be true. After a bait-and-switch, Clara finds herself sharing a lease with a charming stranger. Josh might be a bit too perceptive—not to mention handsome—for comfort, but there's a good chance he and Clara could have survived sharing a summer sublet if she hadn't looked him up on the Internet... Once she learns how Josh has made a name for himself, Clara realizes living with him might make her the Wheaton's most scandalous story yet. His professional prowess inspires her to take tackling the stigma against female desire into her own hands. They may not agree on much, but Josh and Clara both believe women deserve better sex. What they decide to do about it will change both of their lives, and if they're lucky, they'll help everyone else get lucky too.

House Rules:
Do your own dishes
Knock before entering the bathroom
Never look up your roommate online

Clara Wheaton is suffering the plight of the average millennial woman. She's overeducated, underemployed, and left cold by the efforts of uninspired suiters. When her childhood crush invites her to move cross-country into his spare bedroom, the offer is too much to resist. Unfortunately, it's also too good to be true.

After a bait-and-switch, Clara finds herself sharing a lease with a charming stranger. Josh might be a bit too perceptive—not to mention handsome—for her comfort, but there's a good chance he and Clara could have survived sharing a summer sublet if she hadn't broken her own rule...

Up until now, Clara's been the exception to her family's infamous reputation, but once the Internet reveals Josh's profession, she realizes living with him might make her their most scandalous story yet....

        Starred review from July 6, 2020
        Danan debuts with this wildly original and sexy romance about an uptight East Coast socialite and the stranger she inadvertently shacks up with. When Clara Wheaton’s longtime crush invites her to leave her Manhattan apartment and move in to his spare room in Los Angeles, she impulsively agrees. But then his band heads off on tour and he rents out his own room as well—to porn star Josh Darling. Clara, who’s always been squeamish about porn and has never had a satisfying sexual relationship, googles Josh, and, naturally, Josh walks in on her watching one of his films. He offers to make up for all the boyfriends who’ve left her cold by demonstrating his talents in person. Their no-strings-attached encounter simultaneously accelerates and complicates their budding friendship and also inspires a new business venture, with Clara financing and Josh producing videos that fall “somewhere between porn and sex-ed” designed to teach women’s partners how to better please them in bed. Meanwhile, Josh’s nefarious former employer, Black Hat Studios, works to undermine them. Danan makes this novel premise work with a charming, believable heroine; an offbeat hero with a heart of gold; and snappy, laugh-out-loud prose. Romance fans will especially appreciate that the steamy erotic scenes are used to further character development, rather than just for cheap thrills. This delectable rom-com is both red-hot and fiercely feminist. Agent: Jessica Watterson, Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency.

      • content: Narrators Brittany Pressley and Teddy Hamilton juggle humor and heat in this sexy contemporary romance about socialite Clara unwittingly moving in with adult entertainer Josh. Pressley's voice has a lively quality that mirrors the energy of the characters, so when she slows her tempo or lowers her volume, it adds depth to a compelling narrative. Hamilton seems to have a bit of a Midwestern accent if you have the ear for it, but it doesn't disrupt his performance. Instead, he uses those minor twangs to his advantage by creating uniquely identifiable voices with his cool, crisp delivery. Pressley and Hamilton are an aural team to be reckoned with. A.L.
