The Lessons was the first time I had ever picked up a book by Elizabeth Brown and being the first time I had read about a sexual surrogate I went into it a little timidly. But I really liked it and then I saw there was a second book and I just had to get my dirty little hands on it.

Now in all honesty I had to read it then and there or my goldfish memory would make me forget who was who and what I was hoping to get out of the second book. Plus it would end up slowly slipping down my TBR mountain until I forgot all about it, so I promptly went to beg netgalley and bam woke up with The Rules all ready to go. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

First I want to say that it can 100% be read as a stand alone but if you are like me and a little anal about your reading order read the first one first cause there’s a few things that add context. But if you are like me and read a series in a day and get frustrated they keep going over the same shit, don't panic it absolutely didn't happen like that here. Being told from a different character not involved in the initial couple made you see it all from a new perspective and damn was it awesome.

I went in thinking I knew who Ainsley was but I discovered I knew who her brother thought she was and seriously I was so far off base it was awesome. And Lambo, well yeah he was the huge man whore I thought he was but you all know how much I love those and fuck he was amazing. 

“I get it, man. I get it. It’s not a sacrifice. When you’re with the right person, the best thing is being with that person. Hell, the only thing is being with that person. You don’t want to do anything else. You don’t want to be with anyone else. I’d rather watch paint dry with Ainsley than get my dick sucked by any other chick—”

There were so many issues raised in this book that were done so perfectly I spent so much time with a goofy grin on my face as I read it and even though I cried I went straight back to laughing and smiling and I could not fault the emotions or the characters feelings or actions. It was just fucking perfect.

Only negative thing I can say and I probably should admit I am a very vengeful person first, is I really wanted to see some people from book 1 fall down some stairs and/or maybe get hit by a bus and they were not. In fact they literally weren’t even mentioned in this book which I guess was punishment enough and I didn’t notice they didn’t get shat on by a thousand elephants until the end so I guess it’s not really an issue. But yeah I am a little mean like that. Oh well, maybe that will happen in book 3 or 4. Fingers crossed.

But truly this book was fucking awesome. Lambo was the king of sweet smutty whispers so before you read it have your panty changes ready or you know commando that shit. Be prepared to lose a day or two cause you won't be able to put it down and even once you do you will be unable to pick up a new book cause you won't be able to stop obsessing over how much you want a Lam of your own.

Anyway seriously stop reading my shit and go one click the book. Seriously best money you can spend this week.
