Release Blitz Review: Sex Ed by Z. B. Heller

Sex Ed, an all-new HOT and hilarious M/M comedy from Z.B. Heller is LIVE!!! 

Sex Ed 
by Z.B. Heller
Publication Date: May 31st, 2017
Genre: Contemporary MM Romance

Jaxson Dane is harboring a secret.

Not the fact that he’s a geeky comic book lover, or that he secretly draws his own comic, Bunny Fu Ninja Warrior. It’s not even classified information that he’s out and proud!

 His secret is the shame that he’s a twenty-three-year-old virgin.

Jaxson isn’t waiting for marriage or even afraid of taking that step, he just hasn’t found the one guy who will accept all of his adorkable qualities. Due to an unfortunate mishap with a self-pleasuring apparatus and his favorite appendage, Jaxson meets Tyler Mason. The emerald-green-eyed nurse is a witness to the mortifying incident, leaving Jaxon both grateful and disappointed in their one-time meeting.

And then Tyler somehow shows up at Jaxon’s family dinner.

The very dinner at which Jaxson’s hidden virginity is revealed to everyone, including the captivating nurse.

Even though he secretly found the ER situation hilarious, Tyler is also able to look past it to see Jaxson’s genuine nature and is drawn to the charming and hapless comic book artist. He’s tempted to pursue the inexperienced Jaxson, but a recent and life-altering decision puts a damper on his wants and desires. However, the more time they spent together, the more willing he is to take the risk of juggling his new commitments and winning Jaxon’s affections.

A large, insane, and meddlesome family, two prying co-workers, and a sexy nurse are all trying to give Jaxson a crash course in Sex Ed. Will he pass?

This book is laugh out loud funny if you are into crude, sexual joke at the expense of a comic geek virgin. We have the characters from previous series, The Chronicle of Moxie and Tied Together. I never read Moxie, but in Tied Together I don't recall the characters being as crazy as here.

Jaxson the nerdy comic geek of a hero who I actually love. I find his POV's interesting and funny and he is so hopeless in the romance department that he virtually never date before, as oppose to his twin sister, Sophie who seems like super loose.

Tyler is the nurse who witnessed Jaxson's embarrassing moment in ER by trapping his dick in a sex toy. When Tyler turned out to be Uncle Brandon's colleague, they got the chance to interact again under the roof of the boisterous and overzealous Dane family.

We have Jaxson, the blushing virgin who is socially awkward and then we have solid, dependable Tyler who is turned on by his innocence. If this book is entirely about them both, I'm sold. I enjoy every of their little interaction, especially with Tyler being so patience and supportive of him. But I feel cheated when some of their important moments are gloss over. Seeing as Jaxson is a virgin, which is a big part of the story, I didn't even get to read about him receiving blowjob and rimming for the first time. I didn't even get to read about their first sleep over. Seriously, this is a big injustice. I'm in rage.

Instead of getting all the sweet bits between Jaxson and Tyler, we get plenty of Sophie and Ethan and Jaxson's coworker at the comic shop. Sophie and Ethan the enemies that bicker non stop, I mean every single words out of their mouth is to provoke each other. In the beginning I find it funny, but after awhile is getting old and I wish they just proceed to hate fucking each other already. I want to read more about Jaxson and Tyler, not Sophie and Ethan. And I find that the way Sophie's publicly announcing Jaxson's situation is not even remotely funny, I find it very demeaning, humiliating and embarrassing. Definitely not a big fan of her.

Overall, this is one romantic comedy between a geek and his Mr. Right is something I find humorous at time, but the supporting characters are simply over the top. Maybe fans who enjoy Moxie's version of humor might like this more. I'm uncomfortable when joke turned into embarrassment at the expense of other people.

As a little girl it was always a dream for Z.B. Heller to become She-Ra Princess of Power. Since this dream was unattainable, she spent what was probably way too long in college trying to “find herself”. Becoming an artist scratched the creative itch until the stories in her head were getting to be to loud for her to get anything else accomplished.

She lives in St. Louis with her husband, son and Flemish Giant rabbit Chloe. In her spare time she likes to read, stalk celebrities on Twitter and create the type of art people scratch their heads about.
