The Teasers Review: Missionary Position by Daisy Prescott

Title:Missionary Position
Author: Daisy Prescott
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published:  June 8, 2014

Synopsis:

Sex? Absolutely

Love? Not my thing.

I didn’t do love or butterflies, but I loved him.

I was screwed, and not in a good way.

Selah Elmore is a smart, independent woman who knows exactly who she is and what she wants. She loves her life being a professor and popular pirate erotica author. However, when she leaves the Pacific Northwest to spend six months studying sculpture in West Africa, she learns she doesn’t know a thing about love.

Cocky, suit-wearing Gerhard charms her during a stopover in Amsterdam, but dashing, adventurous Kai sweeps her off her feet in Ghana.

Sparks fly on three continents when perpetually single Selah discovers there’s more to love and life than she ever imagined.

*thinking* Missionary Position.

Wait…that’s a sex position, not a title to a book.  How in the world did she come up with that one? *ponders*

That was my exact thought the moment the title was revealed for Selah’s story.  Now, if you’ve read Geoducks are for Lovers you’d know how flirtatious and fully open to anything sexual that Selah can be so it was quite clear that Missionary is NOT on her to-do list.

Well, it wasn’t until she found herself on a layover at JFK and makes a bigger connection than her flight.

Missionary Position is a beautiful journey filled with personal growth, acceptance, and most importantly, love.  Within these pages you will also find locations and imagery your mind and soul can soak up like a sponge and then you will feast upon gorgeous scenes that were painted with the strokes of a seasoned artist.  Daisy takes on a new challenge here and instead of Selah’s story taking place in the North West corner of the US, she takes us halfway across the world and to places some will never experience.  She gives us the openly accepting vibe of the Red Light district in Amsterdam (and has me highly intrigued by the cheesy delights mentioned), but  don’t worry, not a single cliché in sight.  Then she whisks us off to the sights and sounds Ghana, complete with the modernized and not-so modernized sides of life there where Selah finds not only herself, but something she never thought she’d find. This story is peppered with plenty of tasteful steaminess that will have you sighing and googling blonde Dutchmen.

Trust me.  Just do it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story and, although I’ve never been to any of the locations mentioned, I felt as if I was right there alongside Selah.  Daisy brings us a whole new cast of characters, without forgetting the gang who started it all, and it was refreshing to meet new people who can add a deeper richness that makes the growth of this storyline  unlike any others.  Gerhard *teehee* was an absolute doll (and incredibly enticing) and getting to know him was so much fun. 🙂 Also, it should be mentioned, that Selah has a small thing for pirates and their swashbuckling ways and now, after a certain scene and some guyliner, I too had my own thoughts about swords and sashes, 😉

Daisy, you’ve done it again!

I need to be completely honest with you guys.  I had just finished a book that was frustrating to me when I found Missionary Position.  The book  came to me as a breath of fresh air.  Not only is it witty and charming, but the sexiness makes sense.  It’s not over the top.  I think my sex needs to be elevated and fortunately for me (and you too), Daisy Prescott does sex very well.  (Take that every way you can, but the creepy way because that’d just be weird.  Don’t be weird.)  It felt so good to message my fellow Teasers and say that I was on page two and I was already loving the book!

For me, the mental visuals of Amsterdam and Ghana were fantastic.  I love a story that takes me places I’ve never been and to some I’ve traveled to before.  Daisy brought back precious memories of Ghana in the book that honesty take the romance to a whole ‘nother level.  There’s something about Selah being out of her usual element that we’ve seen that added a more thrilling experience for the budding romance(s) she has in the novel.  The exoticism added to the eroticism.  (You can quote me on that 😉 )

I have underlined so many lines of dialogue from Selah, Gerhard, and Kai that it’s ridiculous.  Their quips are so quick and funny that they often made me laugh.  On top of all of that, they made me feel a sense of budding love that I MUST have in a romance.  You’ve met Selah before if you’ve read Geoducks Are For Lovers.  If you haven’t, you can probably read Missionary Position, but knowing more about her from Geoducks will only enhance everything that is happening in Missionary.  It makes those really romantic lines that much more enjoyable and will have you grinning.

I guess I could simply wrap up my review by saying Missionary Position left me joyful and happy.  It was what I needed, when I needed it, and I needed it.

Oh, Selah! How I wish you were real so I can pester you with questions and pick your brain. 😉

This story was so entertaining I was left with a big smile on my face once I finished. Daisy wrote a beautiful story that makes the audience believe they’re really there in Ghana with Selah. The imagery and description of the world around her is perfection. While reading, I was actually daydreaming what it would be like to visit there in real life because it all seemed so tangible and authentic because of how wonderfully detailed the story was.

I loved how Selah was so carefree, smart, and quick. She’s a responsible woman who has traveled and is bold in everything she accomplishes, but the one thing she isn’t bothered by is not settling down or looking for a stable guy. She likes to have fun and isn’t interested or worried about anything more…. Until… Kai and Gerhard sweep her off her feet and she’s left pleasantly happy. She may have found her match, but will her independent spirit let her fall for their charms?  Don’t wait, and one-click this read to find out!! 🙂

Daisy is such a fantastic writer, you’ll be hooked from beginning to end! There were some amusing scenes in this book that had me laughing OUT LOUD!! The part when they’re talking about saying goodbye to the animals? O-M-G. Selah killed it! The things she says and the way she says them are so funny to read about. Once again, I wish she were real. 😉
