When it comes to sex, shy and awkward Verity is as reluctant as a virgin. So imagine her horror and shame when her ex reveals her inadequacies to the internet? To prove that she’s not frigid, as claimed, she’ll sleep with the very next man she sees!
So when her boss, Cal Bailey, a man completely confident in his own sexiness, invites her to one of his legendary parties Verity leaps at the chance. She gets Cal right where she wants him but at the crucial moment her insecurities take over, leaving Cal confused and her frustrated!
Verity, convinced she can’t do it, is set for rejection again but Cal is a sexpert and he’s determined to turn Verity’s pain into her ultimate pleasure...
The Pleasure Principle is a relatively fast-paced novel and could also be one that literally provides sexual healing.
Verity isn’t just shy and awkward, she’s damaged by what her ex wrote online about their sexual life.
To be exact, her sexual skills.
Maybe it’s just me, but I feel that Verity doesn’t have too much confidence for herself. If Cal wasn’t there, I feel as if the damage done to her, the stigma of having horrible sex skills would always stick with her and she wouldn’t be able to go on living her life normally.
In Verity’s case, Cal saved her. Literally.
One of the best thing about this novel would definitely the characters’ development! It’s amazing how Cal doesn’t give up on Verity and wants her to overcome that fear of being a ‘2 star’. The best part comes when Verity gains confidence for herself!
Recommended to readers for a short and light read!
