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

Here are a few things I don't think are funny (or romantic!): a mother teasing her son about his erections; a sister discussing the size of her brother's penis; an uncle recommending a vibrating butt plug; cousins joking that their parents would have an orgy if only one of the uncles would wear a strap-on; your parents suggesting you need a dildo.

For example:

Mom to son: I knew you had feelings for your friend Jason's penis ... It saddens me that when I dig through your personal items i

One thing that I truly appreciated about this story was that it felt pretty unique.

However, the book title, "Sex Ed," did make me think that this would be a story about 25 y.o. nurse Tyler giving inexperienced, 23 y.o. Jaxson 'lessons' to get him up to speed sexually, which wasn't the case really at all.

Instead, this was more the story of a shy virgin meeting a guy that he liked and them getting to know one another, mostly *out* of bed.

The story was pretty hilarious, with Jaxson being one of the

No, no no no. When Jaxson is DRUGGED in a bar, a nurse (Tyler) should NOT decide that this is the time to get a grind on, ON Jaxson, while Jaxson is blacking out...
That is just stupid, and makes me doubt Tyler's professionalism as well as his integrity as a person. *sigh*
This was definitely not for me; I'm normally all for snarky and fun characters, but Moxie (Jaxson's mother) was WAAAAAAYYY over-the-top, and in-your-face-transboundary...
So yeah, I tried, but stupidity and creepy mothers are n

SEX ED by ZB Heller was knock your socks off stellar. Extremely funny, with solid characters, no taboos and total acceptance, this story of self-love and personal growth nicely rounded out this first book for me by this author.

Jaxson was a delight. Naive in some ways and well beyond his years in others, he was by far my favourite character in this book. Growing up a nerd and being a 23 year old virgin with a gift in drawing comic strips immediately labels you in a negative context-but somehow t

I really enjoyed the first 20% of the story, it was hilarious and I warmed up really fast to Jax.
The story overall was good and it keep me interested. I really Liked Tyler and deeply enjoyed his romance with Jax.
Sadly a few things dimished my enjoyment:
1. The people in Jax's life, it seemed like everyone was super inappropiate, don't get me wrong some moments were definitely funny but most of them were just cringe worthy, they had a weird relationship, there was zero privacy. Everyone knew ever

El libro comienza muy bien, durante la primera parte ha habido momentos donde he llorado de la risa. Pero, a medida que la historia avanza he sentido que todo era... demasiado. Las bromas, el sarcasmo, las situaciones, era todo surrealista, ha seguido teniendo momentos graciosos, pero lo habría sido más si a veces no pareciera todo un poco forzado, demasiado exagerado.
La pareja protagonista es adorable y es una lectura light, divertida, pero me esperaba más después del primer 25%

I wanted to love this book.

I think I may have fallen in love with it before reading. Well, the idea of it anyway. I love nerds and virgins and humor and men who love men. This was set up to be everything. Maybe I had too much excite prior. The build up was too great. *shrug*

The first 10% was some of the funniest stuff I've read in a book; Beginning with Jaxson’s coming out pushing out intervention to the subsequent sex toy mishap. Funny AF! I kept thin

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

I enjoyed this book, the beginning was so funny and I was really excited. It felt like a romcom movie, but after a bit I lost interest in the OTT interaction from the side character. Personally Insta-love is not my thing. But it's a cute, low angst book with tons of jokes

When a mishap with a sex toy lands Jaxson in the ER, he meets Tyler, a sexy nurse. There is something about Jaxson that calls to Tyler, but Tyler isn't sure he is ready for a relationship with Jaxson with the life changes he's recently had to face, yet he isn't so sure he can resist him either.

I'll start by saying I have never laughed so hard or so much while reading a book. This story was hilarious! I absolutely loved Jaxson and Tyler. They were such lovable characters. The story was entertain

This is the first book I have read by the author. I picked it up on a whim after hearing that this book was hilarious from several different people and had to see what the fuss was all about. Woah!! They were right! This is one of the funniest books I have read in a while. It kind of reminds me of Tara Sivec’s chocolate lovers series in terms of the humor and family “dysfunction”.

M/M romantic comedy. Stands alone but ties into all of her other books.

I am not usually a big m/m reader, but I enjoyed ZB Heller's Tied Together so much that I decided to read Sex Ed as well. And I absolutely fell in love with the nerdy, gay hero, Jaxson (who is Moxie’s son if you have read those books). Jaxson also has a twin sister that grew up speaking for him and still does.

Sex Ed by Z.B. Heller is a rom-com with high comedy. Like more comedy than anything else for sure. Jaxson's character was truly fabulous. There's something about a shy and clumsy guy that calls to me. Add in that he's a virgin and you can see how the humor is born.

I would say that Jaxson was by far my favorite character in this. It's very hard not to love and deeply sympathize with him. Tyler (an ER nurse) is really the perfect fit for someone like Jaxson. He will need someone with medical train

When the first two words in a book are ‘pubic hair’ it kind of sets the tone for the rest of the story – and believe me those were just tame words to lubricate my mind for the rest of this hilarious read from Zolie Heller. I have read every book released by this author and she never fails to shock me with her ‘no subject is barred’ approach to her writing. I laughed so many times reading this story and also read bits of it out loud to my husband too.

4.5 stars, rounded up.

A virgin.

A hot nurse.

A sex toy incident.

A hilariously crazy family.

Throw them all together and you get one hell of a funny story. It has a few moments - mostly Jaxson's immaturity - but everything comes together nicely in the end.

I'll definitely read more by this author.

The humor is a bit over the top, yeah? I love a funny book. Give me a book that makes me laugh out loud as the MCs fall in love and I am a happy camper. This book did do that, I was laughing and giggling throughout...even when I was rolling my eyes at some of the antics.
Side characters are abundant in this story. Jaxson's mom was ridiculous. The relationship between Jaxson's sister, Sophie, and his best friend, Ethan, was just too much at times. I get it, I am just like Sophie. I cannot help my

This started off ok, I was laughing a lot. Then it just got to much. It ended up being quite ridiculous. The editing was SHOCKING! And I'm not normally a stickler on that if I'm enjoying a story, but because I lost interest it started to bug the crap out of me. Also the best friend and sister need to disappear. I didn't like them, and there constant bickering and taking over the spotlight throughout drove me batshit crazy. I'm not sure how I felt in the end, but I really don't think I

The blurb is what caught my interest and had me taking a chance on it, because who doesn’t love seeing the geeky, adorkable character get their happily ever after? And while there were a few things that didn’t quite hit the mark for me, Jaxson, Tyler and their journey to their HEA was practically perfect! There are a lot of humorous moments, of all degrees, but there is also a whole lot of heart in the mix that made it difficult to put down and kept a d

I really loves this romantic comedy. I smiled and laugh and read the best lines out loud.

It is adorable and sweet and zany. A bit over the top, yes, but super fun and light with characters that although they feel kooky also feel real.

I had no idea when I picked this up the ZB Heller had already told the Mom and Dad love story and the Uncles as well. I didn't need those to enjoy this one but I will be picking them up.

Sex Ed is the latest standalone from rom-com veteran Z.B. Heller. It does interconnected with characters from her previous books as the MC Jaxson is the son of Moxie (The Chronicles of Moxie), but it reads perfectly by itself.

Jaxson Dane is your typical comic book nerd. He's single, lives alone, sketches on the side. The thing is, he's a virgin. After an unfortunate mishap, he finds himself in the hospital and in front of one of the hottest male nurses he's ever seen.

Hmm... I'll just lead with what I did not like. The comedic factor in this book was way OTT. By that, I'm not referring to crude or raunchy humor. I am not prudish. This was mostly just too cheesy for words. I get that it was intentionally meant to be humorous but it bypassed the realm of humor into ridiculous. The first 30% of the book is filled with enough slapstick and cheesy off color humor to cause one's eyes to be stuck in the under brow position. It just was not funny. The author tries to ...more

All right folks, before you start this one be sure you’re mind is wide open and that you’ve tossed the shy, prim and proper side of yourself way far out the window. You’re about to step into a family where anything—and I mean ANYTHING—goes and nothing—and I mean NOTHING—is ever a secret…or at least not for long. Welcome to Jaxson’s life!

Jaxson is exactly the kind of guy I’d pick for myself. He’s not a center-of-attention, loud and crazy kind of guy—probably because his entire family makes up for

This story was 100% pure bliss. It was such a fun, hilarious, sweet, and feel good book. I feel for Jaxson and what he has to deal with. Yes his family can be embarrassing, which most of the time I just found extremely hilarious and at the same time are supportive and loving. Jaxson mind is completely entertaining,geeky, and a bit naughty. Something i enjoyed immensely. His and Tyler relationship is such a positive force with little drama.

I don't think I have ever laughed harder while reading a book than I did with this one. There is so much goodness about this book. The characters are hilarious. I fell in love with every single one of them, but none as much as Jaxson, the adorkable comic-loving nerd. He is innocence, kindness and unfortunate wrapped up into one sexy package. The banter between all of the characters had me laughing out loud. Some of the things that they would say?? And this family has NO boundaries which leads to ...more

Jaxon and Tyler meets under less than ideal circumstances when Jaxon winds up in the ER with a "toy" mishap. Tyler is the ER nurse. As the two wind up in each other's lives, more hysterically crazy situations seem to find them. I can't stress enough how insanely crass, zany, and off the cuff Jaxon's family is: Anything goes, so forget your privacy and leave the word "embarrassing" at the front door!
