Publisher's Summary

Diana Kelley is a couple's sex therapist with a problem: It’s her job to convince her clients of the importance of sexual and emotional intimacy, but after surviving a toxic relationship with an abusive ex, she's sworn off love and can’t fathom ever making herself vulnerable again. When her best friend, Ava, is injured the night she is scheduled to assist with a hands-on sexual education workshop, Diana is forced to find a short-term replacement. The last thing she wants is a new lover, even a paid one.   

After a year of living in the apartment next door, all Jude Monaco knows about her neighbor Diana is that she’s a gorgeous older woman and the inspiration for more dirty fantasies than she cares to admit. So when Diana knocks on her door with a shockingly delicious favor to ask, Jude seizes the opportunity to learn more.  

Their professional relationship is supposed to be a clinical erotic arrangement between a sex therapist and her assistant, but at the intersection of sex and intimacy, anything is possible. Even love.

Abby Craden? Lori Prince? Where is the Voice???

So, I am one of your fans that have been waiting for the next Meghan lesbian erotica book. I do not read lesbian erotica often but when in the mood I come looking for your work. I read only lesbian novels now and usually lean towards mystery, thriller and sometimes sci-fi. Truth be told if it has lesbians in it I will read it. I have not finished this book yet and really like the concept and can see how easily this could excite me but... it's the voice, Brittani has a nice voice just not my choice for erotica. These scenes beg for the voices of Abby Craden, Lori Prince or Betsey Z. Those are the voices that stop me dead in tracks and just work. No offense Brittani. Meghan please work with one of those narrators!!!!!!

Hot hot hot

Wow what a sexy sexy story, I loved everything about this from the intense heat between Di and Jude as well as the intimacy that developed between them. I know a lot of people will just see this as a smut read but if you take the time to listen to the story that lies within you will see it’s not just all sex.

EARS ON FIRE!!!

Whooo. Quite possibly the hottest book that ever fell on my ears! Ms O'Brien adds yet another rocket to an already impressive arsenal. As usual she delivers wicked sizzling erotic scenes and blends them flawlessly within a fabulous story. Brittni Powers does a wonderful job bringing the characters to life and damn if I didn't shiver anytime she said baby! JUST BUY IT!

Oh My

Ms. O'Brien has done it again. I really can't fathom how she's able to come up with the incredibly graphic sex scenes. What a turn on from the get go to the end. Rates right up there with 13 Hours and Night Off.

Wonderful

I always enjoy this authors books. She has yet to disappoint. I gave 4 stars on the performance because I personally did not care for the narrator(tho she wasn’t horrible). I think I’ve been spoiled by the gorgeous narrating voices of Alexandria wild and Lori prince.
I really enjoy how Meghan O’Brien works aspects of mental health into her books. The erotic nature of the story was both hot and beautiful. She most definitely has a knack for taking what could just be a shallow erotic short story and turns it into a deep, moving, story with substance that leaves the reader hanging on every word. The characters were very well developed and I found myself rooting for both of them. Thank you once again mrs O’Brien for creating believable characters that the reader or listener can relate to in one way or another. Brilliant work!

Interesting story but the narration detracts from it

There were times certain scenes were overly drawn out while others were rushed. I had to skip a head a few times since it seemed that conversations were being repeated ad nauseam. The narration itself was all in the same voice and rather monotone. It was difficult to tell the difference from one character to another and became confusing at times. I think the book would be a better choice than the audio version. As a whole I would purchase this book since I do enjoy Megan O’Brien’s work but I would have opted for the paperback if i had to do it again.

Author/story makes up for the narrator

Meghan O'Brien hit it outta the park AGAIN! The narrator was definitely not a fav...however, it's been SO long since O'Brien has had a book released on Audible that I am able to move past the poor narrative.
Please! Keep em comin Ms. O'Brien!

Seminar on Sex

Diana Kelley is a sex therapist who has sworn off love. When her best friend is hurt and can’t assist in her hands on sexual education workshops Diane needs a short term replacement. Jude Monaco lives next door and has proven to be a busy lesbian lover is the noises through the wall are any indication. Asking for her temporary help proves to be a PHD level experience. Marvelous erotic narration and story.

A masterful bland of eroticism and romance

Ms. O’Brien has written a captivating story that dances along the delicate lines of female emotions and sexuality. She has a deft hand and her words have done justice to what this delicate dance can become between two beautiful damaged souls.

TSTND is a slow burn romance that builds and builds amidst pages of sex.
Every. Single. Sex. Scene. carries the plot forward and the emotions tangled within those scenes are expertly described. Couple that with the variety of sex positions and acts …I was never bored.

I absolutely loved the femme/femme dynamic.
O’Brien usually writes butch/femme, so I was happy that she chose to showcase a femme/femme relationship. The characters were deep, unique, and felt realistic.

Narration was Brittni P.’s best yet. She really captured the emotion of the scenes.

Title Says It All

Honestly, I thought this was going to be superbly written erotica with a flimsy premise holding it together but I've listened several times now and its MAGNIFICENTLY written erotica with well-rounded characters and enough angst to make you worry they won't make their HEA ending. The side characters are well written too, but I cannot stress highly enough how beautifully the sex scenes are written and how they deal with genuine scenarios with care and affection.

Having said all of that the sex is off-the-scale hot and entirely to blame for me looking so focussed at work as I stare at my monitors and blame my age for the hot flushes :)

Steamy Erotic Drama and Romance

Diana and Jude are next door neighbours. All Jude knows is that Diana is older and gorgeous. all Diana knows is that she needs to protect her heart due to a treacherous relationship in her past. No matter, Jude is younger, probably immature but events mean she needs her help.

Unfortunately for Diana, helping with her job isn't a great way of avoiding intimacy when your job is sex therapist to women.

The story is steamy in the extreme covering (literally) a full curriculum of sexual activities on an increasing scale of intimacy for the relationship Diana doesn't want.

The sexual side of the story is only part of the picture and O'Brien takes on an emotional roller coaster for Di and Jude.

The audio performance is very good and brings the book to life. There were moments when the characters merged together a touch though.

Overall a strongly worthwhile listen!

What a rush, worth the read & so much more.

I a more than pleased to say I found The Sex Therapist Next Door beyond titillating. Wow fuel for the imagination is certainly an understatement. I found myself falling in lust with both Dianna and Jud, and Brittni's voice OMG she was truly amazing. She fluidly changed from one character to the next, all with their distinct personalities and mannerisms, god at times I actually thought there were multiple women recording the audio track, damn Britttni is amasing very talented I put her up there with the likes of Victoria Nicola Vincent. Laura Kirman and Angela Dawe, just to name a few of my favs.
