    Rosalinde, a librarian, splits from selfish, thoughtless boyfriend, and is offered a job working for Julian, rich guy with his own library needing cataloguing. Julian, and Celeste, his beautiful wife seem to have an emancipated open sex open, and with differing partners becomes apparent as the story progresses. Seduction of Rosalinde by Julian is quite erotic, and leads him to explain not only does he want his private erotica catalogued...he also wants Rosalinde to tutor his nephew, David, a virgin. Lots of erotic scenarios, one wonders if such positions occur in real life, oh, that they had when I was younger and single...I'd have jumped at the chance! Enjoyable read, slightly dated, reminds me of late eighties, early nineties, doubt a young man like David would still be a virgin at that age, but enjoyed the voyeurism of his masturbation scenes. Negatives, a few typos, suggests the publishing house needs better editors.Just borderline four stars from me.

    Set in contemporary times this is an unlikely fantasy about a reclusive millionaire who hires a young woman to catalog his library of books and his prized possession of erotic literature. Anna? Needing to get a fresh start after recently suffering a bad breakup with her insensitive boyfriend accepts the job even though she senses that something is not on the level after an odd interview with her handsome employer. She soon discovers that her real purpose for being in his house is to tutor his virginal nephew in the arts of love-making. Being an open-minded woman she eagerly accepts her new position and surrenders to her passion and learns several interesting things herself.I enjoyed this book very much and found the two main characters to be extremely likable people. Admittedly, the plot was very thin but who the heck cares when the sex scenes are this exciting! Some were tender and some were very kinky. There were several f/m scenes along with several m/m, some mild S&M, f/f and 3-way sex so if those things offend you be warned

    I must have tagged this as a "too read" since the heroine is a librarian. Though a heads up for any other librarians looking for an empathetic librarian heroine, the whole "librarian" tag line is just to set up the ultimate fantasy and play on all the traditional frumpy-librarian turned nymphomaniac stereotypes. So if that's the stuff that makes your eyes spin around in your head, skip THE TUTOR.However, if you can suspend your disbelief long enough to buy into Rosie's story and transformation, THE TUTOR is a short, spicy read. Rosie Howard is a mild-mannered librarian (::headdesk::) who gets dumped by her narcissistic boyfriend in favor of a thinner, posher and more ambitious co-worker. Looking for a change of scenery, Rosie accepts a job to be the personal librarian of the darkly exotic Mr. Julian Hadey. But Julian and his slinky wife Celeste have more for Rosie to do than just catalog books (which is good thing because she does absolutely NO work in this entire story). Celeste is bringing home her nineteen year old cousin who's as green and naive as they come, and Julia and Celeste want Rosie to tutor him in the erotic arts. OH MY!The plot of this novel, like pretty much all erotica, requires intense suspension of disbelief. The Hadey's are ridiculously wealthy, yet never seem to work very much. The sex is everywhere and people are always doing it, yet never seem to be interrupted by servants or staff, though it is much remarked on that they COULD be. And, like all erotica, no one ever eats, sleeps or gets sore bits and the amount of lubrication referred to could grease an ever-lasting peace treaty in the middle east.As for the erotica itself, this is straight-girl erotica at its finest: nothing here to really challenge anyone's sexual boundaries but it plays to middle-class fantasy very well. It's a perfect read for that lazy or long trip when you want something a little more intriguing, but not mentally taxing.

    Why do the lead female characters in this type of erotica always have to be so naive, pathetic and a little bit thick?

    Pros- involves multiple instances of LGBT coupling, diverse(ish) body types, open relationshipsCons-the writing isn't all that great, them main character frequently lacks agency and I have mixed feelings about the way non-monogamy is portrayed here. The only plot is the little that is required to move from one sex scene to another... and even then the MC is CONSTANTLY thinking about sex

    Buxom Rosie Howard takes a job as the private librarian of Julian Hadey. Hadey, a rich libertine with a beautiful wife named Celeste, not only wants Rosie to catalog his erotica collection, but he also wants her to school his wife's 19 year old cousin, David, in the sensuous arts. Hesitant as first, she soon finds herself deep in the decadence.Da Costa is probably Black Lace's most popular author and one of the most popular current writers of female sex fiction. In this one, she pulls off some incredibly hot scenes without having to resort to too much kink, all the while using subtle prose to get her point across. I also like how the protagonist overcame certain insecurities about herself throughout the story. This one first came out in '94 and was reprinted in '03 by Black Lace. Highly recommended.

    Portia Da Costa is back with another kinky novel. In The Tutor right from the time of Rosalind Howard getting her degree, she had always taken safe jobs. Now Rosalind at twenty-eight wanted something new. An advert took Rosalind to a job with a small amount of secretarial work in addition to library duties, and should be prepared to live in. It seems Mister Julian Hadey has plans for Rosalind, she is to be a tutor for his wife's cousin. David is extremely sheltered and uninitiated in the arts of erotic love. The pleasure of The Tutor is a kinky, erotic romance with lesson in seduction. I highly recommend The Tutor it is one of Portia Da Costa best novels to date.

    The Tutor was published by Black Lace publishing which is known for is erotic books written by women for women. After reading numerous books claiming to be erotica I was looking for something that really put the erotic in erotica. The Tutor does just that. Rosalind is an average librarian with those pesky self image issues. After a breakup with a man she is hired by a wealthy man to manage his in-house library. What a library it is! Rosalind is able to fully explore all of her sexual desires and learns to truly love herself. There is not a lot of story line but a lot of sex. I mean a lot and all kinds of it!
