Fantastic Character-Rich Romance with Depth and Heart

The one thing I always know when I read a book from Daisy Prescott is that I will get a beautiful, character-rich romance for grown-ups. Daisy is a master writing relatable, everyday characters and exotic locales. I experience how her characters grow and develop as well as become cocooned in her setting. She a wonderful descriptive writer, and she takes the reader on the character's journey to not only find love, but also themselves. This is t

Every now then a book comes along that I just know will stay with me long after I finish it. Missionary Position, the first book I’ve read by author Daisy Prescott, is that kind of book.

Forty-something academic, Selah Elmore, is traveling to Ghana for a six-month sabbatical. While on a short stopover in Amsterdam, Selah – and not purely by chance – meets the handsome, smart and witty Dutch version of Adonis, thirty-something Gerhard. Despite their obvious age difference, the chemistry is immedia

Oh first impressions and conversations are so much fun:
"So you are American?"
"Yes. And I'm guessing you're Dutch."
"Was it the accent?" He mimicked me. His eyes sparkled like sun on dark water.
"That and the package." He coughed. I tried not to look at his crotch after my word slip, but failed.
Kai that boy is just so giving when it comes to Selah, "it's Ghana. Everyone's sweaty. Here, lick me." He offered up his neck." I totally don't blame Selah for getting distracted at his erm...tributes, "

*4.5 stars*

Selah Elmore is not everybody's cup of tea. Not everyone can tolerate a strong, independent woman who knows exactly what she wants out of life and doesn't need a man to achieve it. Luckily for me I fell in love with Selah in Geoducks Are For Lovers when she was introduced and because I am so much like her in my strength and independence from the opposite sex, I got her. I couldn't wait to read her book because I knew it would take a hell of a guy to bring down the S.S. Selah.

Writing style: First Person POV

Cover and chapter design: This novel was previously known as Missionary Position, and it had a different cover. With the new book title came a new cover design. I quite like the new design, especially the color palette. And the Adrinka symbols from the Asante tribe used for the chapter heading backgrounds and breaks were cool visual additions. My eyeballs love extras like that in an e-book.

Wanderlust by Daisy Prescott is an amazing journey for the senses, all of them. A wonderful narrative about self discovery, second chances, and love. A story rich in scenery, ancillary characters, and sass. The leads weren’t the typical hero and heroine of late which I loved. It’s a refreshing tale of an older, independent woman with curves, Selah and the unexpected, younger, delectably sexy, Dutchman Kai. Oh and Gerhard, one must never forget Gerhard. Their serendipitous meeting (all three of t ...more

If you’ve read any Daisy Prescott books, you’ll know her writing is a refreshing change from the plethora of New and Young Adult books out there. Her stories are about women who are mature, comfortable in their own skins, and able to stand on their own two feet. Career-focused, they don’t wait for a man to define them. Love, for them is the icing on top of a complex, layered cake.

I was very excited to read this book, especially knowing that the main characters did not fit the typical book characters these days representing 18-25 year olds. They were older, established, settled and employed.

I struggled greatly with the main characters in this book. Older female, younger male, neither of which had believable chemistry. She leaves to go do work, then he eventually shows up. But up until that point, which may have been well into 30% or more of the book, you no longer had th

Daisy Prescott has done it again. Missionary Position takes the reader on a whirlwind adventure over three continents and demonstrates that the idea of love can change when faced with the completely unexpected.

This story took me through an expanse of feelings and emotions ranging from amused to zenful. My heart peaked and valleyed as Selah trekked to new destinations and embarked on fresh adventures. Selah is a strong, smart and capable woman. She relies on no one define her happiness or feeling

Fascinating with lots of unexpected twists!

Missionary Position is one of those stories that if too much of the plot is talked about in a review, then it might reveal spoilers. I'll talk about the heroine instead. Selah Elmore is in her early forties, and, yes, she's the older one in the possible pairing. I liked Selah very much. She's single, smart and loves her work. She loves life and lives in the moment. The story and Selah's journey begins with a brief, chance encounter at the airport while

What a beautiful journey filled with emotions, an incredible adventure of self-discovery and so rewarding.
I had this huge smile on my face, swooning, laughing but mostly falling in love with the characters and the scenery places.



Wanderlust is the kind of book that would give you the envy to learn more and to come back. Inspirational and powerful. I believe in connections and when I started reading it, I could feel it. The desire to take a break,

I finished reading the last page of Missionary Position by Daisy Prescott and let out a contented sigh, a large grin on my face. I loved this book, and for so many reasons. The way that Selah first meets Gerhard and Kai is cute, fun, and different. Her adventures to Amsterdam and Ghana are enthralling, and you really feel like you're tagging along on a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It's a nice change of pace to read a love story about a 40-something woman who's independent, hard-working, and kn ...more

Another sweet romantic comedy that hits all the marks of a good story. The characters are well written. The writing has plenty of humor and sweet moments. The story has a nice flow and pace and there is a happily ever after. If you are looking for a light hearted romance that will make you smile, this is a good one to try.

OMG Daisy Prescott!! Each book that you write is better than the last!! How do you keep making each book better and better?


And let me just say- Daisy's first book- Geoducks are for Lovers was awesome. And then Ready to Fall came and I thought there was no way I would love anyone the way I loved John Day!!

But now, Daisy has given us Kai. Oh dear God. There aren't words to describe Kai but I'll start with sexy, adventurous, sexy and amazing!

I truly enjoyed Missionary Position, this book tells the story of Selah Elmore and I want to start by saying this book can absolutely be read stand alone. I am not going to tell you who Selah’s love interest is because as the blurb says “ Cocky, suit-wearing Gerhard charms her during a stopover in Amsterdam, but dashing, adventurous Kai sweeps her off her feet in Ghana.” Please also note this review will be on the short side because I do not want to reveal the twist and turns that made this book ...more

This was a thoroughly entertaining adventure. The scenery was described so well, I could completely visualize the places Selah visited and the people she met along the way. The main characters were intelligent, professional, independent adults who did not play games or create drama purely for the sake of drama. Not saying this was a completely drama-free read, because there was a specific moment where I really wanted to

Very well written and edited. This is a stand-alone book with no cliffhanger.

I've enjoyed all the books in this series, but this one is my favorite by far. I'm already feeling sentimental, as if I've just gotten home after the best vacation ever and I'm not ready to go back to work on Monday. It has all the elements that make a story interesting for me: I learn a little about someplace I haven't been, I get to spend time with an imaginary group of people I wish were real and that I wish actually

This was such a delight! Selah has the kind of confidence I wish I could embody. I will not be surprised if I ask myself "what would Selah do?" next time I'm talking to a fine fellow. Kai made me swoon time and time again. I admired his perseverance with Selah and the way he cared for her, no matter how many times she pushed him away. I loved that this book was set in Amsterdam and Ghana (with a Portland cameo, too.) There's nothing like international travel and Daisy Prescott did a wonderful jo ...more

4.5 stars, review on SMIBookClub.com.

This book is technically the third book of a series, with Geoducks are for Lovers, and Ready to Fall, proceeding it. But, as you may have noticed, there isn’t a series name for this book, so this story can be considered a standalone. If you don’t read either of the two other books, you won’t be lost. To catch you up, Selah Elmore is the fun loving carefree friend of Maggie and Gil (Geoducks), who she went to school with in Portland, Oregon. She’s the one who

I had it on my TBR for quite some time and I finally decided to pick it up and read it, without really knowing what's it about...and I LOVED it.

"I love you.
I didn't say 'too' because I would love him even without knowing whether he reciprocated. I loved him without expectations. I loved HIM."

What an amazingly adult story! Totally loved it!!!

This is my first read from Daisy Prescott and she is now my newest obsession!!

The story and author's writing style is just, dare I say, transcendent.

Yes, I dare.

The range of emotions, the characterizations, the settings, lush and visual, the love story in itself...just wow. I was in awe from start to finish.

Missionary Position is a story that would be very easy to give away spoilers, so I will do my best not too.
