About the Book:
Naughty by Nature #1
Sasha Ford lives life her way. Tattooed, pierced, and professionally satisfied, the Seattle music-lover has found her groove. She’s living her dream as a free-spirited graphic artist, but the fearless vixen has grown bored with her booty-calls and is on the prowl for a new conquest. Her trademark black eyeliner and scarlet lips serve as both invitation and warning to any man she pursues.
Seven years of college transformed small-town bad boy Avery Kingston into a super-geek. New to the city with his shiny PhD, he struggles to find his social identity by connecting with his tough guy roots. Attempting to merge his past with his present in the counter-culture, he finds himself in over his head—especially when sexy Sasha drags him into her world of mosh-pits and after-parties.
Sasha only expects a one night stand, but their searing chemistry leads them in a direction she’s less than comfortable with. Confronted with the female version of who Avery thought he could be, Sasha’s sexual advances bring out a carnal need to give as good as he gets. Sasha believes she can't maintain her own identity if she’s in a serious relationship, but Avery wants more than sex from his hot rebel. He must convince her of his love and respect for her fierce independent streak or say goodbye to her forever. Is Avery strong enough to make Sasha break her own rules?

Eve Hart's Romance Review:
This novella was jam packed with sensual, hot, just-plain-fun sexiness. The story grabbed my attention from the first sentence, and did a good job holding it throughout. There were a few times where I skipped the dialogue to get to the…err…meatier part of the scene. The romance between Avery and Sasha was fierce and kind of sweet. Avery was a bad boy turned good boy turned sex god – and I loved seeing him come out of his shell and really open his heart to Sasha.
Sasha is fun, feisty, and ready for a good f***ing – which gives her a reputation as someone who goes through men like some women go through finger nail polish colors. Her experiences with empty, broken relationships leaves a bad taste in her mouth, which she carries into every interaction.
Avery, lovely, caring, vulnerable Avery, takes his time with her, allowing her to open her own tightly closed heart and let him in.
The sex scenes were hot, the dialogue witty, and the descriptions of Seattle made me want to hop on the nearest plane and go have a cappuccino in a streetside café.
While this book really did rock my world, I couldn’t help but feel it lacked a bit of erotic intensity. Sure the sex was great, but the grittiness I expected from the tagline wasn’t there.
All in all, this book was a short, enjoyable read I recommend to erotic romance readers and rock music lovers alike.
This novella gets a pulse-pounding:
