The teacher and the student. The stable hand and the single dad. First times and friendship turn to love.
There’s nothing attractive about a twenty-four year old virgin, especially not one who blushes every time a hot dude looks his way. But I can’t help the heat that ripples through me every time I see Cole Maguire. And the clench of my heart when I realise how unhappy he is. He’s a city boy with a baby on his hip—we have nothing in common—but if he can teach me how to own my sexuality, perhaps I can teach him he’s worth loving.
I don’t like horses. But I love my daughter, and there’s nothing I won’t do for her, including leaving the city for life on a farm. I’m ready for that, but I’m not ready for blushing stable hands who make my heart race and my blood run hot. Toby has no idea how beautiful he is. I can teach him that, if he can handle the heat, but after one night with him…damn.
Maybe it’s me that has a lot to learn.
The Sex Coach is an MM summer romance with first times, a virgin stable hand, a single dad pilates teacher, and guaranteed happy ending.
I had no words. My mind was a blank canvas, lit up only by the fact that he was a heartbeat away from me and I had no idea if he’d moved, or I’d unconsciously drifted closer, drawn to him in ways I’d never been drawn to anyone. I licked my lips. Cole’s eyes tracked my tongue. At least, it felt that way. As ever, I had even less of a clue what he was thinking than I did myself. And for once I didn’t want to know. I just wanted to stare at him and pretend that if I leaned in further and our lips brushed, it would be as brand new for him as it was for me.
Cole blew out a breath and closed his hands around my wrists. He rubbed them up and down my forearms. The contact was soothing, but did nothing to calm my racing pulse. Or to put any distance between us. I wanted to kiss him so much I ached. And he was so close. Just an inch more and it would happen. I felt his breath on my cheek, his chest touched mine, and then his lips, so soft at first I thought I’d imagined it.
Then sensation hit, and it was mind-blowing. I swayed on my feet and only Cole’s grip on me kept me upright on my wobbly legs. His kiss was velvet and firm and sweet, and I couldn’t take it. He cupped my face with one hand, his thumb stroking my cheek and every synapse in my brain exploded.

So, this is a spin-off from the Skins series of which I only read book one. It’s safe to say this book can be read on its own but Angelo from book one of that series and Joe and Harry from book two are major players in this book and Rhys from book three is in this one quite a bit. If you’re like me, you’ll want to read that series first because now I’m going to go back and listen to the two I missed and hope that Sex Coach is out on audio by the time I’m done with those because damn I loved this book.
This is almost an opposites attract…Toby is sexually inexperienced where Cole has loads of experience. Cole is a city boy; Toby is a farm boy. Cole is a little bit of a health nut and Toby just isn’t. Cole hasn’t experienced surfing and the ocean and Toby lives on the water. They are fascinated by each other, inexplicably drawn to each other. They become friends then lovers. Both lack self-worth and self-esteem but help each other see their value.
And now I’m going back to the Skins series to see what I missed…
