I want to welcome Lexi Ryan today. She has stopped by to promote her new novel Accidental Sex Goddess. This was an awesomely sexy and fun read. Be sure to check out the rest of my review after the excerpt. Be sure to check out the awesome tour wide giveaway featured at the end of the post. Just comment to be entered.
Promotions director Reese Regan isn’t a sex goddess and doesn’t want to be. But the job of her dreams requires enrollment in the renowned Sex Goddess 101. To avoid a trip to the unemployment line, Reese must pass the program and become Chicago’s next seductress—or at least fake it convincingly. Her best friend, the ruggedly sexy contractor Ben Hawk, helps her “fake” her way through the program, and the heat between them flares. When trust is broken and secrets are revealed, it appears they’ve traded years-long friendship for temporary passion. Will faking something so important cost them their chance at something real?
“I think I’m going let Mark take me out.”
His jaw ticked. “Don’t be stupid, Reese.”
He cut her off with his mouth. He cupped her face in his big palm and brushed his lips across hers. He was warm and gentle.
And from the first brush of his lips, she wanted more.
Maybe tomorrow she’d blame the tequila or maybe she’d blame the lingerie shopping or the dirty stories she’d been logging into her notebook, but she moaned against him, loving the feel of his mouth, the light scratch of his scruff. Ben was so painfully male. A hot and delicious, long-denied craving.
Ben slanted his mouth over hers and slipped his tongue inside. He tasted like beer. Like male. Like something wicked and addictive. He wasn’t one of those rushed and sloppy kissers. He kissed like it was making love. Like he had all the time in the world. Like his most important task was kissing her. It was a kiss she’d known once and had never forgotten.
He slid his hands under her jaw and into her hair.
Reese grabbed a fistful of his shirt in her hand and pulled him closer, thinking of his eyes on her in the dressing room, thinking of the only other night they’d kissed.
He slid a hand behind her ass and lifted her, pressing her between the wall and his body and nestling his hard-on right between her legs. She gave a moan of approval and rubbed her tongue against his, exploring his mouth for all she was worth. She reached around his neck and slipped her fingers into his hair, tugging gently. Groaning, he pressed himself even closer to her. She cursed the day denim was invented. She wanted closer, closer even as part of her brain told her this was a mistake, told her to end this before they ruined everything.
He tore his mouth from hers and latched onto her neck. Sucking, nibbling, tasting until her eyes closed and she arched into him.
His teeth grazed the shell of her ear. His breath was hot as he whispered, “I’ll be damned if I’m going to let my brother help you with the best parts of this program.”
Lexi Ryan does an awesome job with this novel. Once I started reading this book I couldn’t stop. I even dreamed about the dreamy Ben and his equally dreamy brother Mark. I really fell for the characters of Ben and Reese. It seemed like the more they fought to be just friends the more the attraction built and over-flowed. I also loved the idea of the Sex Goddess program. It would be too much fun to have a program let you find your inner Sex Goddess. What would be even better would be if it came standard with a Ben, Mark or Luke. I would say sign me up! For anyone looking for an awesomely sexy fun read be sure to get your hands on Accidental Sex Goddess. Believe me when I say you will be having your own Sex Goddess dreams with these hunky men…just not Ben…I’m calling dibs!

Thank you for hosting
Good morning! Thank you for hosting today’s stop and for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review. I am so glad you fell in love with Ben! I love the other boys to, but Ben…*sigh*
Thank you to everyone stopping by today! Since so many of you have been following me on this tour, I really feel like I’m getting to know you! I hadn’t expected that, and I’m grateful. That said, I don’t want to recycle questions from earlier in the tour, so I’m going to ask your help if you want to give it. Want to help me name a character? The heroine in my WIP needs a name. Right now I’m calling her Katie, but she’s not a Katie. She’s a single mom and a immensely private person, and she’s been turning down the hero for years. Suggestions are welcome, though not required to enter you in the drawing. 🙂
When you start dreaming about a book that’s always a good sign.
LOL. Isn’t it, Mary? Of course, right now I’m reading a Lisa Gardner book that’s creeping me out, and I’m not loving dreaming about it! 😉 Thanks for coming by!
Great review! I’m gonna have to check it out!
Thanks for coming by! 🙂
Hm, I like Nadja, it was the name of a book for my first University assignment about surrealism literature and I loved how the character said, that the named is the beginning of hope, but only just the beginning(I’m translating here).

That’s a gorgeous name, Gala! I’m going to write it down, and if I don’t use it this time, I can definitely see using it in the future. 🙂
Thank you for the review, sounds like a fun read.
Thanks for stopping by, Rita!
Emily maybe? Faith? Lilian is also nice 🙂
Very sexy excerpt. I think the reviewer fell in love with your characters.
I really didfall for the characters 🙂
🙂 I love when that happens. Thanks for stopping by, MomJane!
could you imagine to turn your book in an audiobook as well? As to the name, well uhm, I like Hope or Alexandra.
Ami, I like both of those names, but I think Hope fits this character perfectly. Hooray! Thanks! 🙂 As for audio, that’s definitely coming, but I’m still in the early investigatory stages.
Hi, you guys! I wanted to stop in really quick and apologize for not responding to comments yet today. I caught a tummy bug and spent most of the day in bed. I’ll come by tomorrow morning and respond to everyone individually. 🙂
Thanks for the excerpt and review.
Thanks for coming by, BN! 🙂
