Publication date: August 16th 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
When Bethany Beaumont finds a book about life in the sultan’s harem, she discovers it’s actually a guide to the lost art of seduction. Just what she needs as she departs on a study abroad trip to exotic Istanbul. She’s struggling to get over her ex, and the book of dirty little secrets might be just the thing to help…if only she could find someone to practice on.
Half-Turkish and full of Australian swagger, teaching assistant Adam Kent seems to fit the bill. They decide to become lovers for the duration of the trip, and then part ways. Forever.
But not every lesson can be found in a book, and sometimes falling in love changes everything. When Bethany is forced to confront her past, and the promises she made to someone else, will it really be as easy as she thought to let Adam go?
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily wrote an honest review for.
I just loved this book! We get to meet Bethany (or Bob) who is very unhappy with her life. She decides to go on a school trip to Turkey by herself when her "friend" backs out on her. What follows is a rich world of some amazing locations layered with a steamy romance that starts off really rocky. The history tidbits are an enjoyable addition to The story that pair nicely with the culture worked in as well which makes it feel well researched. The dialogue made me giggle and so did her constant accidents which were just great. The evolution was incredible tieing the personal growth with the respectful tackling of today's world. If you enjoy great contemporary romance novels this is so the book for you. I loved it so much it gets 5/5 stars.
