Wanted: Adventurous, open-minded man willing to try anything…
As a popular sex blogger, Beatriz gets paid to have orgasms. So being on deadline the week of her sister’s wedding isn’t as rough as it sounds. There’s just one hitch: Bea’s assignment is to write a review of a sex position manual, but she doesn’t have a plus one to play with.
The good news: Ben, the one who got away back in college, is also attending stag--and he's as temptingly gorgeous as ever.
The bad news: Ben turned down Bea’s offer of graduation night sex five years ago.
The best news: He’s not planning on making the same mistake twice.
A red-hot retelling of Much Ado About Nothing for people who love Shakespeare but thought his plays could use a few more sex scenes.
A Cosmo Red-Hot Read
I don’t think I even read what this book was about before picking it up. Tiffany. Reisz. What else do I need to know? Being a HUGE, HUGE fan of her Original Sinners series, this was a must read for me.
Bea is a sex blogger headed to see her big sister, Claudia and her fiancé, Henry get married. As she’s running out the door, she gets a last minute assignment for a book review – being in a hurry she grabs the first package she sees. What’s the problem? It’s THE MANUALl, a hot new sex position book. So, Bea has lots of sex in her future but no partner. This is where Ben comes in.
Ben is Henry’s best friend and Bea hasn’t seen him since college. Since the night she offered herself up to him on a (naked) silver platter and he rejected her. It’s been five years and neither has forgotten about the other. They are both single and with no more than a shove in the right direction they are making up for lost time. And oh do they ever! *wink wink*
“I get it. I do. It’s for the best. You probably would have fucked me and forgotten about me like Henry though.” Beatriz grinned at him, a smile that said, “I’m just giving you a hard time.”
“But I didn’t fuck you, and I’ve never forgotten you.”
I adored this novella and it’s clever play on Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. Tiffany Reisz has such a way of writing sexually confident, interesting characters (Bea, Ben, Claudia, Henry & of course I can’t forget Keaton aka the best bellhop on the planet) and I feel that was no exception here. The whole cast of characters were funny, entertaining, with just enough depth packed into this short little story for me to really care about them. It’s definitely an erotic romance, with no details spared for the reader but it’s definitely a light story and it had me cracking up like crazy.
“Can you be bribed?” Ben asked, deciding to cut through pretense.
“Yes. Yes, I can,” Keaton the bellhop said and gave Ben a jaunty salute.
“Good. Will a Jackson buy me a room number?”
“Fine,” Keaton said. “But a Franklin would buy you five room numbers. And my R-E-S-P-E-C-T.”
“Do you actually work here or are you an escaped mental patient?” Ben asked.
“You really want to know?”
Loved it! 4.5 stars!
