On a working assignment, hoping for a hot scoop for her magazine, Samantha attends a sex therapy workshop. It’s hosted by the enigmatic, handsome and highly regarded psychosexual therapist Ryan Brantwell, known in the trade as Dr Sex. Having done some research beforehand, Samantha thinks she knows a little of what may lie in store, but Ryan Brantwell turns out to be much more than just a man who knows a thing or two about sex. He’s talented, intuitive and full of fun-filled ideas. He has a way with women, an ability to empathize, to become their close confidant while sorting out their funk.
As Samantha begins to immerse herself in his program she finds out things she doesn’t want to face about herself. The whole thing now seems a very bad idea. She starts to unravel and her life tears apart.
But she’s drawn to Ryan in ways she has never been before. She wants far more than just therapy from him. But he’s off limits – Ryan places great value on the client – therapist relationship, his professional integrity comes before everything else, and he makes his position quite clear to her. But he wants to keep her close, professionally speaking.
