    Fantastic Character Rich Romance with Depth and HeartThe one thing I always know when I read a book from Daisy Prescott is that I will get a beautiful, character rich romance for grown ups Daisy is a master writing relatable, everyday characters and exotic locales I experience how her characters grow and develop as well as become cocooned in her setting She a wonderful descriptive writer, and she takes the reader on the character s journey to not only find love, but also themselves This is the case for Selah, her heroine, who I met earlier as a secondary character in Geoducks are for Lovers, Daisy s first book in her Modern Love series.I adored that Daisy wrote about a different type of heroine one who is in her 40s, never married, confident in her career and has very few regrets in life The reader, as well Selah, thinks she has it all together, but as she meets Gerhard, we see the way she views life and relationships change very slowly Daisy reveals Selah s insecurities little by little as she goes on her journey of love in this book Daisy takes Selah out of her comfort zone in Portland, Oregon, where all of her support system is located and takes her to Amsterdam and Ghana during the progression of her romance There are a lot of metaphors to Selah s view on life and relationships in this book, and it was fun seeing the author place these little easter eggs for the reader to find In addition, Daisy has Selah experience new life experiences in Africa which are so wonderful to read Her experiences become a part of the story.Gerhard is a great hero too He is man full of contradictions, and we learn, along with Selah, not to judge a book by its cover Daisy created a very patient, and old world soul in this book He is the perfect ying to Selah s yang.If you love books where you like to explore the nature of a characters journey with love, this is a fantastic book to read Daisy has the reader experience sights, sounds and touch through her descriptive writing A truly beautiful story filled with humor, emotion and wonder A true gem.

    Every now then a book comes along that I just know will stay with me long after I finish it Missionary Position, the first book I ve read by author Daisy Prescott, is that kind of book.Forty something academic, Selah El, is traveling to Ghana for a six month sabbatical While on a short stopover in Amsterdam, Selah and not purely by chance meets the handsome, smart and witty Dutch version of Adonis, thirty something Gerhard Despite their obvious age difference, the chemistry is immediate, and the two end up spending the balance of Selah s time in Amsterdam together However, for the first time in Selah experience, when it comes time for her to leave, she finds herself wrestling with her personal decision to just keep things physical Although she knows that traditional love isn t and has never been in the cards for her, she s completely and utterly overwhelmed by the feelings that have been awakened in her When Selah arrives in West Africa and meets the handsome, enchanting Kai, she begins to let herself wonder whether there is to life and love for her than what she has ever allowed herself believe.Selah was a character I immediately related to I loved that she is a mature woman who understands herself in all of her many facets sexually, intellectually, and academically She s witty, and a little catty too, but Selah also has a deep, compassionate side as well, and I felt as though she challenged me in that way to think about myself and life on deeper levels I loved, also that Gerhard, and Kai, continually challenged Selah to think about herself in other ways Missionary Position is a coming of age book It s not young adult, or new adult it s adult adult It s a book about growth, about self discovery, and about having the courage to find out who you are, even if you already thought you had all the answers There s a category on my Goodreads shelf I call smart books They are the books I read and re read Books that have not only brought me enjoyment while reading, but that have also challenged me to want to know , understand , or learn about a topic or an issue, or even about myself Eat, Pray, Love is on that shelf The Gabriel trilogy too Missionary Position now has pride of place there as well Here s my advice pour yourself a glass of wine, take your e reader, and find a comfortable place to settle in Let Missionary Position transport you to the romantic city of Amsterdam let it lead you on a discovery of the exotic world of West Africa and let it challenge you to look at life and love in a completely new and different way Five romantic, exotic, and erotic stars.

    Minor spoilers alert Writing style First Person POV Cover and chapter design This novel was previously known as Missionary Position, and it had a different cover With the new book title came a new cover design I quite like the new design, especially the color palette And the Adrinka symbols from the Asante tribe used for the chapter heading backgrounds and breaks were cool visual additions My eyeballs love extras like that in an e book Lead Characters Dr Selah El a professor, an author of pirate smut and a world traveler extraordinaire who needed a man like a fish needs a bicycle I loved her attitude about enjoying her sexual life to its fullest and not needing a husband and kid s to feel fulfilled But as Ama pointed out to her, being fulfilled doesn t make you immune to loneliness Selah really grew during her working stay in Ghana and in direct relation to her time getting to know Kai intimately On a random and silly note, I loved, loved that she nicknamed Kai s penis Gerhard, and I chuckled during her little internal monologues she d have about it Too cute and funny Gerhard Hendriks aka Kai initially an enigma to Selah, this younger Dutch hottie finagled his work project improving the business world so he could follow Selah to Ghana for 3 glorious months of passionate sex and quality togetherness I loved how quickly he opened up to Selah and how he completely rocked her world He was also very good at pulling her out of her habit of constantly looking to the past for answers instead being in and enjoying the moment worry free Favorite Supporting Character Ama a retired ex pat teacher who owned and operated a hotel in Ghana and also rented out a private bedroom and bathroom in her house to Selah She was the warm, friendly and mothering type who became Selah s best local friend I loved that she didn t sugarcoat anything and gave Selah great advice and nudging whenever needed Favorite Quote Selah, his voice hitched You re one of the best things that has ever happened to me I never expected you, yet here you are I enjoyed Selah and Kai s delightfully amusing, sexy and yet introspective love story It was cool to experience a bit of Amsterdam and Ghana through their eyes Plus, I m a total sucker and always fall hard for a male character like Kai who recognizes he s in love with a woman and will determinedly pursue and woo her until she too is convinced what they feel and have together is the real deal.

    Oh first impressions and conversations are so much fun So you are American Yes And I m guessing you re Dutch Was it the accent He mimicked me His eyes sparkled like sun on dark water That and the package He coughed I tried not to look at his crotch after my word slip, but failed.Kai that boy is just so giving when it comes to Selah, it s Ghana Everyone s sweaty Here, lick me He offered up his neck I totally don t blame Selah for getting distracted at his ermtributes, he laughed and stood, dropping both his trousers and his boxers His beautiful co stood at attention, gently bobbing as he stepped closer to the bed Yes, beautiful Some are His cough drew my attention north of his co for a brief moment I licked my lips and smirked Selah she is such a smart woman and when the girl is angry there is just no stopping the wrath, I did How dare you put me in a position to have to email your ex wife to find out information about you Angered colored my voice Kai the boy sure can give compliments Do I look like I m attending a funeral Not with that cleavage His eyes focused on my chest while his hands snuck around to touch my breasts.I liked this one but my favorite book by Daisy is still Ready to Fall I can t wait to see what comes out next for Daisy.

    Wanderlust by Daisy Prescott is an amazing journey for the senses, all of them A wonderful narrative about self discovery, second chances, and love A story rich in scenery, ancillary characters, and sass The leads weren t the typical hero and heroine of late which I loved It s a refreshing tale of an older, independent woman with curves, Selah and the unexpected, younger, delectably sexy, Dutchman Kai Oh and Gerhard, one must never forget Gerhard Their serendipitous meeting all three of them not only changed their lives, but caused her to revaluate everything she believed she wanted out of life.I love a Daisy novel and can t seem to get enough of them My Wanderlust for an impeccable story always leads me straight to her page This intelligent, sweet and sexy story was funny and witty, leaving me with a grin on my face and a smile in my heart.

    If you ve read any Daisy Prescott books, you ll know her writing is a refreshing change from the plethora of New and Young Adult books out there Her stories are about women who are mature, comfortable in their own skins, and able to stand on their own two feet Career focused, they don t wait for a man to define them Love, for them is the icing on top of a complex, layered cake And if you haven t read any Daisy Prescott books, what are you waiting for Geoducks are for Lovers and Ready to Fall are available now from all good booksellers Selah El isn t the shy and retiring type She s a woman who takes control of her life, her career and her sexuality Having long since decided that a relationship isn t for her, it doesn t stop her from having the occasional dalliance and one night stand.All that seems to change when she meets Gerhard, a Dutch businessman who is totally not her type Yet, somehow, they click.Fast forward a few weeks, and Selah is working at a museum in Ghana as part of a year in Africa Adopted by the owner of the hotel she stays in, she soon makes an eclectic group of friends who in spite of their different backgrounds look after each other in the sweetest of ways.And then she meets Kai I don t want to give too much away about the story by telling you how the romance plays out Suffice it to say it is sweet and sexy, a journey for both Selah and Kai During the struggles they face, they learn that no man is an island Each has to learn that a relationship requires both give and take.I loved that Selah was refreshingly strong She was a heroine who took no nonsense, was occasionally abrasive, but still had a soft, sweet core If you re looking for an innocent, Mary Jane ing nue, you re in the wrong place Selah doesn t have time for that sort of nonsense As for Kai, well, he was just dreamy Masculine and strong, he was a great foil to Selah s brashness And as the story went on, we learned that he, too, had a softer side One that made me pretty much want to swoon It wasn t only the characters who made me fall in love with this book The locations that Selah visits are so vividly described that I felt I was right there with them Stories of African food and drink, of trips to see monkeys and elephants, of beautiful scenery that took my breath away were like a third character in this relationship.Although set in the same world as Geoducks and Ready to Fall, with many shared characters, Missionary Position can be read as a stand alone romance There are no cliff hangers, just a beautiful love story you ll want to read over and over again.Five beautiful stars.

    Daisy Prescott has done it again Missionary Position takes the reader on a whirlwind adventure over three continents and demonstrates that the idea of love can change when faced with the completely unexpected.This story took me through an expanse of feelings and emotions ranging from amused to zenful My heart peaked and valleyed as Selah trekked to new destinations and embarked on fresh adventures Selah is a strong, smart and capable woman She relies on no one define her happiness or feelings of self worth But when she meets a man who awakens feelings inside her she never knew existed, her internal axis is tilted She is forced to ask herself questions she never thought she would consider let alone be in the realm of possibility.The love story in the book is sublime Selah and Gerhard Kai are well developed characters both mentally and physically They challenge each other to think outside themselves and to see the world from another vantage point while willing themselves to embrace a new point of view Daisy crafts both heated passion and deep emotional connection between Selah and Kai You could feel the emotional conflicts within Selah as she experiences pangs of guilt and longing over her new found friend The references to Selah s writing books her friends affectionately call pirotica under her pen name added some very nice spice to the storyline Selah s references to Kai s given name Gerhard sprinkled throughout the book allow for double entendre chuckles.Worth mentioning is how descriptive Daisy is able to get about the locales she has her characters travel to When Selah was seeking to get some skirts made in Africa, I felt as though I was in the open air market with her helping her choose fabrics The story transported me to places I have never been, but left me feeling like I had truly seen the cities and landmarks described.Daisy is one of my favorite authors as her characters are extremely relatable to me It is refreshing to read stories that allow you to believe that no matter what age, love is a possibility Thank you Daisy for keeping that hope alive.

    I was very excited to read this book, especially knowing that the main characters did not fit the typical book characters these days representing 18 25 year olds They were older, established, settled and employed I struggled greatly with the main characters in this book Older female, younger male, neither of which had believable chemistry She leaves to go do work, then he eventually shows up But up until that point, which may have been well into 30% or of the book, you no longer had the male character in the fold, leaving him almost to be a distant memory.Add the fact that the male quickly became forgettable to the fact that the female was becoming unlikable and I soon found myself no longer caring if they even got together The African backdrop did very little for me It did not really add anything interesting to the book because every scene that the backdrop was part of was merely functional and not really informative This just made it scenery that I had no desire to know anything about, rather than potentially finding it interesting and maybe exotic.By the time the male lead shows back up, I actually felt like I had to learn about him all over again because the short time you meet him in the beginning of the book, you almost feel like he is just a passing phase and no one important He isn t written interestingly enough to feel attracted to, and the female lead is so hot and cold and on and off that I wasn t sure if she was just looking to get her some before she was stuck in the middle of no where Unfortunately, this did not work for me, but that was mostly because Africa was unappealing, the male lead was missing entirely too much so that when he came back he was hit or miss, and the female lead was not someone I would even want to be friends with and I couldn t really find myself pulling for her I also didn t find their relationship compatible It felt as hot as an iceberg and as engaging as an insurance seminar Just two people that felt like they settled rather than truly fit together.A premise and a relationship that I just couldn t buy into.
