The Intimacy Experiment by Rosie Danan
Such a smart romance book!
The premise of The Intimacy Experiment by Rosie Danan truly made me intrigued from the get-go.
What I wasn’t prepared for was how invested and eye opening this book would be.
You have Naomi Grant former adult film star, now co founder of a sex positive company. She now wants to lecture on intimacy and sex positive attitudes. She wants to expand the outreach of her company and its purpose.
Ethan, a rabbi can help with that cause… really? Um, yes! He is a young (attractive) rabbi in need of growing his congregation. He is forward thinking and pretty darn level headed if you ask me.
After convincing Naomi to come and lecture on intimacy, their paths to growing a congregation also evolve into growing comfortable conversations about relationships, sex, intimacy, and ultimately the growing chemistry between Ethan and Naomi.
I was impressed by the smart conversations happening relating to relationships, personal inhibitions that limit people to connect with others, the whole aspect of looking internally before jumping into a relationship was so refreshing to read. I don’t come across many romance books that tackle these topics head on. It’s a contemporary, non aggressive conversation that should happen more often with seasoned couples and newbie couples as well.
The Intimacy Experiment was a surprising enoyable read. I was easily committed to an HEA for each character, but also I felt as if I learned from a relationship counselor.
