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.
Tiffany Reisz lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her boyfriend (a reformed book reviewer) and two cats (one good, one evil). She graduated with a B.A. in English from Centre College in Danville, Kentucky and is making both her parents and her professors proud by writing BDSM erotica under her real name.
When not under arrest, Tiffany enjoys Latin Dance, Latin Men, and Latin Verbs. She dropped out of a conservative southern seminary in order to pursue her dream of becoming a smut peddler. Johnny Depp’s aunt was her fourth grade teacher. Her first full-length novel THE SIREN was inspired by a desire to tie up actor Jason Isaacs (on paper). She hopes someday life will imitate art (in bed).
I have made it no secret how much of a fan I am of Tiffany’s Original Sinners Series, so when I saw this wasn’t apart of that series, I was intrigued and couldn’t get my hands on it fast enough. I have to say this left me enthralled, titillated and laughing hysterically through the entire story.
When we meet Bea she is giving her boss hell and I immediately fell in love with her snark. She is off to her foster sister Claudia’s wedding, when a sex manual is literally dropped in her lap for review on her sex blog with a tight deadline. Making her trip maybe more pleasure than she originally thought.
Then there is Ben, who is the groom Henry’s best friend from college and we also learn Bea’s first love. Although as far as she knows it was totally unrequited. I have to say Ben is not only cute and sexy and all the things you want in a steamy read lead male but also so funny and real. The realness of these characters and ease of their friendships lent such a fantastic tone to this retelling of Much Ado About Nothing.
So Bea recruits Ben to help her review, The Manual over the week they are there, for Henry and Claudia’s wedding. What ensues is some of the best sex scene’s I have read in a very long time. Though I never doubted Miss Reisz prowess in that arena.
So we have Bea, Ben, a wedding, The Manual, and a misunderstanding or two. I can’t say enough about how much FUN I had reading this Cosmo Red-Hot Read and can’t wait to see what others have to say.
