Review by Trinette Dungee

“There’s a reason actions speak louder than words, because sometimes words get us into trouble. They’re misunderstood, assumed, or they simply aren’t enough to properly communicate with.”

Sex Therapist Vaughn Lair’s star is on the rise; already known for his famous radio talk show he’s about to go even bigger. He packs his bags and moves from Sunny California to Ice Cold NYC. Not only does his star get bigger but his life keeps considerably more complicated. 

Vaughn’s new gig isn’t exciting him the way he thought it would; the challenge doesn’t seem to be there, until the call that changes it all. Mysterious “Apple” calls in to his show, she tells Vaughn they’ve met a time or two but she won’t reveal who she is. Each night Vaughn hopes Apple will call into his show, on the night that she does, she just leaves him more confused and curious than the last call. To add to the stress of finding out whom Apple is; Vaughn’s relationship with his best friend Haven (who also happens to be his assistant) takes a turn. Vaughn’s used to being the one to give the advice but now he finds himself on the other side of the therapist’s chair.

This book started off a bit slow for me, although I immediately liked the characters. When it picked up, it took off and I was totally engrossed. I think what I enjoyed more than anything was this being told from a male POV. I liked how, even though Vaughn was a therapist he didn’t hesitate to admit when he needed guidance himself. 

After an impromptu kiss, Vaughn and Haven realize (or finally admit) that there is more to their relationship and decide to try it as a couple. These two take us up, down, around, back and forth as they navigate this new dynamic in their lives. This is done with a nice dose of humor. What really got me was Haven questioning Vaughn’s need to have her in his life vs. his wanting her in his life. It actually had me stopping to think “Hmmm, is he really in love with her or does he just love her by default for all she does for him?
