It has been three months since Daniella Brandon's divorce. Worse her ex has hooked up with a blond bombshell half his age. With out a job, desperate and in debt, Daniella decides to answer and ad for a female companion to "teach" a wealthy twenty-some-thing young man "the ropes". Little does she realize or bargain for that the ad is for not one but two hot twenty-some-thing-twin brothers.

Trace and Cage have a very interesting proposition for her. Both men want to share her for two weeks and are willing to pay a hefty fee. Out of desperation--and like it or not she is very attracted to the two young men--Daniella accepts. However, things soon become more complicated, and she finds herself, falling hard and fast for one of the twins.

Part of the appeal of reading a story is living vicariously through the characters and that’s what happens in Personal Tutor. We can sympathize with Daniella because she seems to have a run of bad luck. Divorce, and now the prospect of a job she knows she'll hate, but the bills are piling up. However, along comes an opportunity to be a ‘personal tutor’ to a hunky guy. This is the point in the story where I asked myself, if I was her, would I sleep with this man for the money that would pay off my debt?

The author did a great job making me feel like I needed to answer that very question. I think that’s because Daniella is portrayed as someone quite realistic. She could actually be one of your best friends who’s going through a rough patch which I felt was the most enjoyable part of this story. There’s that push pull thing that makes this sort of story fun, too. And when she does make the decision, I felt like I was actually thrown into her next dilemma; two hunky guys waiting for attention.

If you’re short on time but need your reading fix, check out Personal Tutor by Emma Paul.
