After leaving a restrictive religious community, Rachel Hill is on a mission to divest herself of her virginity. Newly independent and struggling to establish herself, she's not looking for anything complicated. She bids on sexy SWAT officer Ben Harris at a bachelor auction, confident he'll give her the night of her life and nothing more. But Ben is jaded and detached, living his life in an endless cycle of danger-fueled adrenaline jags, drinking, and sex. When he misses the fact that his bachelor auction hookup is a virgin, he's shocked by his obliviousness, and by the risk she took. To make amends, Ben offers Rachel all he can- a no-strings-attached sexual education. Ben's lessons introduce Rachel to down and dirty passion, but she's searching for something more profound than sex, and she's willing to walk away to find it. Ben can't get Rachel out of his head, but will he come to terms with his troubled past and learn to love?

I read two of Ms. Calhoun's "Uncommon" books; this was definitely my favorite. The heroine, a refugee from the restrictive and intolerant religious community in which she grew up, is both naïve and wise, and emotionally strong and honest in a way that challenges the hero, a man who has rigidly protective walls around his emotions. Well done!

Slow pace in some spots...but the story-line was good. The bachelor auction part of the storyline I just didn't get. Who in their right mind would waste all that money buying a man just for sex? when you can get it for free! hehehehe! I guess coming from a restrictive religious community, she didn't know that. Well she should have done her research. I don't know why this is classified as erotic....for me it doesn't read as one. I have read contemporary romance that is soooo hot it should have been erotic. this not so much. Overall not a bad read.
