Life is short, and sometimes you have to take chances...
Catherine Davenport is successful in her career, but doesn't have the same skill when it comes to her love life. After a painful divorce, she's finding the new world of dating both intimidating and frustrating.
Tired of striking out, she takes the extreme measure of enlisting the help of an instructor in a private club who offers sessions on how to improve her dating strategy as well as her overall sexual confidence.
'Calvin', the masked man with the piercing blue eyes and husky voice not only challenges her to step out of her comfort zone, but encourages her to unlock her repressed adventurous side with various lessons.
She feels like she's making progress until her worlds collide and the identity of the man privy to her most intimate details is shockingly revealed as someone she knows.

Teach Me Something is book 4 in the Something series; a series of standalones featured around a group of friends. You do not need to have read any of the other books to enjoy this one, however because they are so good I recommend you do. You will get to know the characters that bit more and you will feel like you are revisiting old friends as soon as you start reading.
Catherine Davenport is a very successful business woman. Editor-in-Chief of the world famous Cosmo Life magazine, her knowledge and influence in the fashion world is unrivalled. Life should be perfect, and professionally it is; it’s her personal life that leaves a lot to be desired. Married and undergoing IVF for a much wanted baby, her husband suddenly up and left her for a younger model. That was 2 years ago and he left behind a woman insecure in her personality and what she can bring to a relationship. She absolutely sucks at dates and the small talk that is so important in finding “the one”. So she secretly starts taking classes at a sex club to give her the tools she needs now that she is ready to move on and dip her toe in the dating pool.
Calvin is her masked instructor. Strictly no sex, he advises her on the do’s and don’ts of starting a relationship. He makes her really evaluate her wants and desires, encouraging her to be confident and assertive; even if this is totally out of her comfort zone. But a trip to Vegas with her closest friends changes everything. Sometimes the person who fits you perfectly, comes in a package you don’t expect. When Catherine finds her something, it turns out to be closer to home than she thinks.
Will she put Calvin’s advice into practice or will the insecurities and heartache of her past and her influential career ruin what could be a love she never saw coming?
I could write pages and pages about how much I adore this series. Aubrey Bondurant’s Something series never ever lets me down; in fact it just seems to go from strength to strength. At the heart of every book has been a butterfly inducing love story. They are always my favourite, but because of that I am seriously picky. They are either too superficial, too repetitive, have too much sex or just don’t have any substance to them. All of those things can never be said about Aubrey’s books. Her stories and characters have depth. They aren’t just hearts and flowers and they always have just the right amount of sexiness to them. In a nutshell they are carefully crafted in every way. Each time I pick her new offering from this series I think “She will never out do the last one”, but she does every time. Where sometimes you feel too much similarity to previous books in a series, you never do with hers.
I loved both Catherine and her man (who shall not be named to avoid spoiling it for you). You often find in life that a successful woman never has it all, and Catherine is the perfect example of that. I loved reading her story and the unexpected twist and turns her life takes.
If you love good old fashioned romance that is guaranteed to give you all the feels, do not miss this book or indeed this series. I now wait patiently for the next instalment, so get writing Aubrey… I am addicted to this series and the characters you have created. – A MUST READ!
