Our Review

“Love is something precious, right? Something coveted. Why shouldn’t people have to earn it?”
He wanted to tell her love was inherent. That it existed in many intangible forms. That she could build love by extending it. But something in the twist of her mouth and the guarded curve of her jaw made him swallow the promises. “But I think in the simplest terms, love makes surviving easier and everyone deserves that.”
Naomi flattened her mouth into a hard line. “Not everyone.”

We were thrilled to hear Naomi was getting a book after loving her character in The Roommate which we read last year. Naomi’s relationship with Clara and Josh from that book was rather complex and interesting making us eager to see who would win Naomi’s heart.

One thing Naomi didn’t count on was losing her heart to a man so opposite to her in so many ways. Naomi’s guarded; Ethan wears his heart on his sleeve. Naomi has her walls built a mile high, Ethan, in his role as Rabbi at the congregation Beth Elohim synagogue, gives so much of himself.

“What I’m trying to articulate is that you’re precious,” Ethan said, “not in spite of, but because of all the ways you believe you’re broken.”

Looking for a way to boost attendance and spark interest in his synagogue, Ethan Cohen enlists the help of Naomi Grant, a sex guru to run a series of modern intimacy seminars, and Ethan is more than a little smitten with her, but Naomi’s past is paved in pain and trust issues. She doesn’t even trust herself.

“I’ve spent my entire adult life in therapy learning to love myself because I believed that if I loved myself, I wouldn’t need anyone else’s love. But that’s not really how it works, is it?”
“No, I don’t’ think so,”
he said softly.

But Ethan accepts her – he sees her vibrancy, her vulnerability and accepts her – her past, her present, her beauty, her flaws without judgment. Can the handsome, sweet, and very sexy Rabbi break down her walls? Can the old guard accept Naomi’s past and profession?

‘If he never saw another lovely thing in his life, he’d be okay. Naomi was filling up his quota. Infinitely beautiful.’

The Intimacy Experiment is a sweet slow burn romance that delves into love and acceptance and it’s full of heart, quirky characters, and some fabulous chemistry.


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.
