"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"-- Provided by publisher.

Socialite Clara moved from New York to Los Angeles, hoping to become more than a longtime best friend to Everett. Instead, he leaves her with a stranger as a roommate, and heads off on tour with his band. Clara enjoys talking with Josh, even as he teases her about her laminated lists. He encourages her to visit the black sheep of her family, her Aunt Jill, who gives her a job, and tells her that her new roommate is a huge porn star, Josh Darling. Josh is stuck in a bad contract with a big porn company, but Clara comes up with an idea for another business opportunity for him: Josh could help women find pleasure through website demonstrations. He tries this on Clara, but their romantic relationship is a slow burn. Debut romance writer Danan's fun characters each gain the courage to move out from others' wrong and damaging expectations in a very appealing, unique forced-proximity love story. With humor and style reminiscent of Christie Craig or Susan Elizabeth Phillips, newcomer Danan is definitely an author to keep tabs on. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
Rosie Danan writes steamy, bighearted books about the trials and triumphs of modern love. When not writing, she enjoys jogging slowly to fast music, petting other people&;s dogs, and competing against herself in rounds of Chopped using the miscellaneous ingredients occupying her fridge. As an American expat living in London, Rosie regularly finds herself borrowing slang that doesn&;t belong to her.
