Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice—with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan.

"I find this book extremely mediocre. I’m really confused of her condition. She’s OCD but not the fact that he’s an escort and he’s been around? I would need him get tested to prove that he’s clean. I do enjoy the streams but there’s not much of a plot. And I also enjoy all the Vietnamese references:) Makes me want bun rieu now haha"
"I liked this book! Really liked the diversity of characters and thought there was some creativity in the story line. That being said I thought there was more excitement in the first 2/3rds of the book and the end felt like it fizzled a little for me. Overall I did enjoy this book and would recommend it! 2.5ish/5 🌶.
