Review: Misbehaving – Tiffany Reisz
5 Stars

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….

*I received a free ARC of Misbehaving from Harlequin / Cosmo Red Hot Reads via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review*

The imprint for Misbehaving is spot on! What a hot story, filled with fun characters, a lot of laughters, even more sex and I am almost reverting to Norwegian rather than writing in English right now *grins*

Bea is a very confident, beautiful, spunky woman! She has a blog where she reviews sex-toys and books about sex. When her sister is getting married, she’s supposed to have a week off work, but because her colleague is sick, she needs to bring a book for review with her. That book is called THE MANUAL and it has twenty-five sex positions in it. That she feels that she should really try out in order to properly review it. Misbehaving never lets up, the sexual tension, as well as the chemistry and the fun scenes just keep on coming.

The one guy Bea never was able to get over, the one who actually didn’t take her up on her offer for some hot sex in college shows up at the wedding, too, as he’s the groom’s best friend. Ben is even more attractive than Bea remembered, and he feels the same way about her. As they are both single, it’s only normal that they hook up for a week so Bea can properly do her job, right?

Starting out only wanting sex, the relationship between Bea and Ben in Misbehaving quickly transforms into something more, as they both remember how much they loved each other in college. And I loved the humor just as much as I loved the sexy scenes. The friendly banter, the way Bea was so confident in her own sexuality and also as a friend and woman truly is very refreshing.

Even in such a short story, I also got to know the characters quite well, and the changes they underwent were great. Even Claudia and Henry, the bride and groom, were present, and I got to know them as well. Looking for a hot, quick, sexy read? Make sure you pick up Misbehaving – it’s well written, funny and scorching hot. Also, I think it’d be the perfect Valentine gift, both for you and your partner 😉

“Sometimes I think I’m kinky because I fantasize about slapping you. And then I realize I really just want to slap you.”

“Mine,” Ben said and downed the shot. He didn’t drink much, not anymore. Unavoidable adulthood had forced him to do terrible, awful things like drink less, eat better and work out more often. He’d never felt younger, healthier or more energetic since he started acting his age. how depressing.

Ben stopped reading. He also stopped breathing. “I can’t read while you’re doing that. Your vagina has rendered me illiterate.”

  1. Yay! Now I know what to get my hubby for V-Day! 😉 This really does sound fun and hot, Lexxie. And I’m impressed that there seems to be so much character development in a novella. I’m always happy about that. 🙂 I’m so glad you got to review this and loved it, my dear. I’m gonna bypass Mt. TBR and just one-click this baby. LOL

    I hope you’ve had a wonderful day! I’m giving up on the elusive email trail. We’ll just have to message with any thoughts/questions as we write the review. (oh, yours is already done??? ;)) *BIG HUGS*

    • Haha, Brandee! I can’t wait to see what Mr. Bookworm thinks about that as a V-day gift *giggles* It is a very fun story, and yeah, to actually have some character development in so few pages is a feat.

      My review is not done yet. But I’m still having trouble understanding how both of us could lose an e-mail thread like that. It makes me a little paranoid, actually, since I used my blogging e-mail for that one. Maybe I need to send you e-mails only with gmail instead.

      Have a fun Wednesday! *BIG HUGS*

  2. I cracked up when you said you were about to revert to Norwegian. Ha! Sadly, the only other language I know is the alphabet in sign language. It takes a while to rave about a hot story spelling out all your words. This sounds great, Lexxie. I like when two people start out vowing a superficial entanglement, but emotions take over. I hope you’re having a great week!

    • LOL, actually that’s because someone in the book reverts to another language when they’re excited 😀 I agree, friends to lovers, or no strings attached stories really appeal to me, too.

      Thanks for stopping by, Robyn 🙂

    • I’ve heard that Original Sinners is darker, and not at all ike this one. I will keep an open mind, and I really liked the writing, so we’ll see 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by, Sarah.
