Golden Heart Award-winning author Jamie Sobrato fell in love with the romance genre at an early age, when she used to sneak her mother's romance novels off the shelves to read during summer vacations. She'd decided by the time she was in the seventh grade that she wanted to be a writer, but in spite of those early ambitions, she pursued a career teaching high school English before she turned to writing.
It quickly became clear to Jamie that she wasn't cut out for teaching high school, so with much support and encouragement from her husband, she began writing her first romance novel. After five years and more than a few rejection letters, she made her first sales to the Harlequin Temptation and Harlequin Blaze lines, fulfilling her lifelong dream. Jamie now spends her days writing fun, sexy romances, and she can't imagine a better job in the world.
Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, Jamie is married to her own hunky romance hero, and they are the exhausted parents of two young children. They live wherever her husband's army career takes them, currently calling the Southern California desert their home.
On the rare occasions when she's not writing or chasing a toddler, Jamie enjoys reading, bargain shopping, eating chocolate and going jogging to burn off chocolate calories.

Josie Marcus is back in town. The last time Trent O'Reilly saw her, she was driving away, leaving him naked on the beach. Now this could be his chance to finally put an end to his desire for her too-tempting self. She's running the local sex therapy clinic, so he'll pretend to need private sex lessons. When he has her hotter than she's ever been, he'll walk away, leaving her unsatisfied. Great plan. So why isn't he heading for the door?
Josie has never been able to resist the sexy Trent. Problem is, whenever they start heating the sheets, she panics and runs away. However, his scandalous offer is just the resolution she needs. If she can control the sessions, she'll stay calm and then she can get him out of her system. But trading sensual pleasures with him is so steamy she wants to stay...forever!

Her mother asks marriage counselor Josie Marcus to return to her hometown of San Francisco to watch the business while she goes to Prague. Her mother runs the Lovers For Life Center that offers a variety of sex education classes on as wide a range of subjects as one could imagine........................ Josie grew up embarrassed by the open display of affection that her mother emitted. She is very reserved, but her counseling work enables her to run the Center and even lead the discussions. Trent O'Reilly owns the building that contains the sex clinic and his sports equipment store. He is owed two months rent by his tenant, but Josie does not have the money. Trent has known Josie since high school where he desired her, but she always fled when they got hot and bothered. He offers her a chance to pay off her mother's debt, sex education for the rent. Josie accepts to help the only boy she was ever attracted to improve his skills though she herself is not much more than an amateur, but will both stick around this time?....................... The lead couple is an engaging duet struggling to overcome a failed history though both secretly share a crush. The story line contains an erotic story line (duh this is a Blaze) that is fun to follow. However, the reader needs to accept Josie's out of character agreement to Trent's business venture that turns her into a whore and him into her John. Still PLEASURE FOR PLEASURE is a heated romance worth attending as the protagonists are quite a duet.............. Harriet Klausner
