Tiffany Reisz’ Misbehaving gives a whole new meaning to ‘reviewing’ sex books! Fresh and full of incredibly written romance as well as erotic behavior that is very fulfilling, this book is fabulous!
Popular sex blogger Beatriz is used to taking her pleasure when she wants it. She not only reads sexy books, she does the review based on experimentation. Only she’s headed to her best friend’s wedding and she has no idea who she’ll get to help her see if the book she’s reviewing works…until Ben—the same guy who turned down a naked Bea five years ago after his college graduation—offers himself up as her partner. Only Ben doesn’t want ‘no strings’ he wants forever. Will Bea give him a second chance?
I have to say I was skeptical if this book would be romantic enough for me or just a bunch of sex scenes…but oh, boy was I so wrong. Though short, it’s VERY well-written. The chemistry and romance is certainly there. Obviously the back-story gives you the fulfillment factor of a lost love found, but it’s the interaction of the two main characters that truly bring it all into focus. While a bit over the top, the heroine, Bea, is still interesting and yet vulnerable at the same time. She’s sophisticated and down to earth. Ben is her perfect match. I will definitely be adding Ms. Reisz to my auto buy list!

“Sweetly romantic, this story is the perfect holiday tale to warm your heart!”

Lucy Bright (a/k/a Lucy B./Cinderella) finds herself in the middle of every girl’s fantasy—being taken from obscurity to celebrity by a rich retail guru. Only the fantasy bursts when she realizes it isn’t a love-match after all. More like a marketing scam to entice sales. Refusing to be used, Lucy flees and ends up in the arms of another retail tycoon, Nathanial Hart! And Nat knows a good thing when he finds it, and he isn’t about to let her get away!
Sweetly romantic, this story is the perfect holiday tale to warm your heart! Ms. Fielding’s writing, as always, is superb and the storyline while obvious on some levels is refreshing on a lot of others. Definitely a story you won’t want to miss reading (any time of year!).
“Fast-paced, humorous and chalked full of reality…”
Fast-paced, humorous and chalked full of reality, Kristan Higgins shares another delightfully romantic story in My One and Only. With her usual humor and first person persona, Ms. Higgins gives us a tale of love so intense it steals the breath away.
When divorce attorney Harper James is forced to attend another of her sister’s weddings, she’s not all that enthusiastic. She sure isn’t when she finds out her sister is marrying her ex-husband’s brother!
Throw in a beefy boyfriend, the usual Catholic Priest, adorable dog, supportive friend, outrageous family, and you’ve got one of Higgins’ twisted tales that leads you exactly where you’ll want to be by the end. My One and Only is filled with underlying, deep seeded emotions that are thrown around to the point that your own (emotions) will range with each turning page. If you’re not laughing, you’ll certainly be crying. Or maybe you’ll be crying because you’re laughing…I know I did!
But honestly, if you’re not fascinated by all the characters—main and secondary alike—there is something wrong. Ms. Higgins sets up her characters, her situation, and her dialogue to give you a well rounded story that you aren’t going to want to miss!
