[Review]: "Misbehaving"

Misbehaving by Tiffany Reisz
Publisher: Cosmo Red Hot Reads from Harlequin (February 11, 2014)
Genre: Contemporary Erotica

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.

My Review:

Tiffany Reisz is not an author that everyone will love. It's the truth; her books are not for everyone, as they are kinky, dark and very sexy. I'm a fan, though, and while Misbehaving is not my favorite book of hers, I still very much enjoyed it!

Unlike Reisz's Original Sinners series, this quickie is more on the playful-sexy side. It was refreshing, since I know how wicked her other books are, how dark and gritty (that's a compliment, Ms. Reisz!).

My only complaint is the length and the lack of emotional connection. Unlike with her full length novels, I didn't feel the connection between the characters in this novella, nor did I feel like I truly knew any of them. Then again, this is common with many novellas, regardless of the author, and as I've said before I am picky when it comes to novellas.

With plenty of dry wit and fun sexual explorations, Misbehaving is a hot read that is sure to please.

3 1/2 STARS!

I received an e-ARC of this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for my honest opinion.

Have you read Tiffany Reisz before? I love her Original Sinners series, though, as I said, her novels are not for every reader. :) 

Do you read any of the Cosmo Red Hot Reads? Do you have a favorite?

Very true about the novellas. It's hard to find one that hits all the right spots in the length. Still it sounds like a fun one for a quickie! I haven't tried her before but know quite a few who love her books.

Oh, it was, very much had a rom-com feel to it, but very sexy! :) I would say if you want to try her work, go with this one first. Then, if curious to see how her darker books are, move on to them. :D Right now I'm reading The Prince from her Original Sinners, and loving it. Not sure if I will do a full review, but I'll probably do a mini one next month.

I've had the Original Sinners on the tbr list pretty much since they came out. lol I like those dark ones. Just the darn tbr pile is way to blasted long and it takes me ages to get to them.

*nod* Yep, I know how that goes! Well, I hope one day soon you get a chance to start them!
