A Little Bit Naughty: Tahoe Nights

A Little Bit Naughty

Kindle Edition
Published October 9th 2010 by Samhain Publishing, Ltd.

Faced with the annual family reunion in Lake Tahoe, Amanda Harding cringes inwardly like the awkward teenager she used to be, not the successful bookstore owner she is now. Once again she’ll be bombarded by questions about her dreadful status as a single woman. And, like always, she’ll feel the weight of her parents’ disappointment that their only child isn’t happily married and pregnant with their first grandchild.

As she relates her troubles to her good friend Leo, she’s shocked to the core by his offer to pose as her soon-to-be fiancĂ©. Then all she can think about is getting tangled up in the sheets—and with Leo’s deliciously hard body.

Leo Prentice has always wondered what his quiet, bookish Amanda looked like beneath the conservative suits, but the prospect of wrecking their friendship has kept his dirty mind in check. Until their first fake kiss. Playing Amanda’s lover seemed like a win-win. But the little bookworm stirs a fire in him unlike any other woman.

Soon, the teasing touches and sensual looks are all too real…and not nearly enough.

Warning: this title contains a yummy construction man, a shy bookstore owner and a very naughty weekend filled with sizzling friends-turned-lovers sex.

I can be so easy sometimes.

Friends pretending to be lovers and ending up exactly that. So simple. So predictable. And so deliciously pleasing to the soul. Anne Rainey has finally gotten to me through Leo Prentice, a successful business owner parading Chinese food.

This one had a edge to it though. After a quick kiss to test the waters of whether or not they could be convincing, there's an obvious physical reaction. One that is addressed. Big shock, huh? People actually talking!

“I thought I proved to you on Wednesday that we could make it look plenty real.”

“As to that…” Amanda hesitated, unsure how to broach the topic of his erection.

His hand tightened. “Yeah?”

“You, um, got excited when you kissed me.” Amanda studiously kept her eyes on his face.

Leo cleared his throat and released her hand. He pushed his fingers through his hair, making a mess of the dark, shiny strands. Amanda had an urge to push her own fingers through Leo’s gorgeous hair. “Excited. Yeah, that’s one way to put it.”

She frowned. “Well, how would you put it?”

He made a left hand turn. “Turned on,” he bluntly stated. “Aroused. Hard as a damn rock. Ready to push you against the wall so I could get a better taste.”

Leo is not a guy short on words. He aims to please and isn't opposed to letting his partner have her very wicked way with him. He also plays for keeps so I was sold on the man way before the sizzling bedroom scenes and the hot talk of seduction. This is an enjoyable, quick read intended to get your pulse rate up. Way up. 4 out of 5 stars.
