Confession time. When I picked this book from Netgalley, it was because between the cover and the “Cosmo Red Hot Reads” emblazoned on said cover… I thought it would be something in the erotica genre.
So I had to adjust my expectations, so that I wasn’t disappointed. Because when you go into a book expecting erotic scenes and you don’t get them – disappointment definitely arises.
I took a step back and looked at it through the lens of romance instead of erotica and then suddenly everything was much better.
Aubrey is the window designer for Le Muse lingerie store (in Manhattan) – and it’s Christmas time. This window is a big fucking deal. She’s freaking out and doesn’t have a single piece of inspiration for the scene when a Hot Guys Trading Card falls from the sky literally into her hand. And suddenly, inspiration strikes – this man must be her muse! So she calls him up and proposes a deal: all the sex he wants until Christmas so that she can be inspired.
“I mean, all I really need from you is lots and lots of sex.”
His next words vanished from his mind. As did most of his working brain cells. “What’s that you say?”
What guy in his right mind would turn that down?
Detective Liam Flynn almost does.
But he agrees and I do have to admit – for a book that’s not erotica, the two of them do get a bit steamy.
But there’s more than passion between the sheets for these two – and it gets to be a little too much for Aubrey. It’s totally cliche but what good would a romance be if the hero or heroine didn’t tuck tail and run so that we could enjoy a good session of make-up sex at the end?
What Others Are Saying:
- Harlequin Junkie: Definitely Naughty is a fun, quick romance with lots of sex appeal. Jo Leigh has written this with a decidedly Manhattan vibe, all witty and smexy, which I enjoyed.
