Sex life: MIA

There’s just one thing missing from Gia Renyard’s life: sexual adventure. And the one man she’d like to have it with is her hot co-worker, Luke Monroe. If only company rules didn’t prohibit her from asking him out. So Gia comes up with a plan: make herself over into a fantasy seductress, follow Luke to a convention in Sin City, and have her way with him for one erotic weekend. The man will never even know who did him.

Everything is going according to plan—until Gia discovers that Luke is perfect for her outside the bedroom too. And suddenly she’s no longer content to let what happens in Vegas stay in Vegas…

My Review: 

4.0 Star Review – FEARLESS

I recommend this book.

I enjoyed this book by Tawny.  This book includes Erotic fun, passion, laughs, heartache, betrayal and sweet revenge in this story.

If you found out your fantasy worthy crush was leaving the company would you try and get a chance to seduce him? 
Even if it meant going out of your comfort zone in order to do it?  I think most of us would.  

Gia Reynard has a job at Tri-Solutions which she likes but there is a hot guy also working there Luke Monroe, the company golden boy, that she likes but the company has a fraternization policy that prohibits relationships.  So one night when she and her three closest friends are having a gab fest she blurts out she would love to get with Luke before he leaves the company.  A plan of action is called for and the girls devise the plan. 

Gia will do a quick makeover so no one will recognize her and she will seduce Luke while he is in Las Vegas.  All goes according to plan Gia seduces Luke as “Vanna” and she gets her man.  They are both enjoying the benefits of the seduction until they both start having real feelings for each other.  Gia flees before Luke awakens.  Luke is hurting after she bailed as he thought they had something special. 

When Gia returns to work she is promoted and is now working under Luke.  Terrified that Luke will recognize her she telecommutes and finally just backs out of the project.  Luke figures out “Vanna” is really Gia and is furious until overhearing gossip about someone who was sleeping with someone else and was let go. 

Gia is escorted to Luke’s office when she realizes he knows about “Vanna” and he decides a little sweet revenge is in order.   Now if they could just make this work.

One of my favorite parts:

 “He’s hot enough to melt chocolate,” Gia said, imagining just that, then wishing she could lick it off his naked body afterwards. “He’s gorgeous, has a body to die for, and he’s got that sophisticated sexy vibe going. Like he takes his sex cues from books and indie films instead of watching porn with the guys from the gym.”

About Tawny:

I love romance.

Happily ever after, hot love scenes… all the good things in life.

For a long time, I was content to explore this enticing world through books. Then, wow – I found out it can happen in real life. I met my husband, who showed me that all those wonderful, magical feelings described in the books are real. Hey, what d’ya know, fiction really IS based in reality.

Once that particular dream came true, it was like Pandora’s Box opened… if I could have that dream, why not the one I’d hidden away in that quiet corner of my mind… the one about putting those stories dancing around in my head onto paper (or computer screen) and writing my own romances? It took awhile. Workshops and classes, voraciously devouring every how-to book I could buy, studying the market and finding my niche, to say nothing of my voice. Throw in those little distractions like life, children and such… but the dream started taking life.Once I joined RWA I found another form of magic. Camaraderie, support and friendships that have touched my heart. The dream is blooming. Over the years, I’ve served as President, Secretary and VP of Administration in various RWA chapters, as well as Publicity Chair, Mentorship Chair, Critique Chair, Judged and coordinated various contests and moderated a few other programs. All of this gives strength to that dream, and keeps it grounded. 2012 will see my thirteenth, fourteenth, fifteenth and sixteenth Harlequin Blaze novels in the shelves, as well as three indie Karma Cafe novellas.

I do have other dreams that I’m happily tending: my own real-life hero husband and our two children. Our Northern California home, an ode to ideas and obsessive redecorating/remodeling. Good thing my hero is handy with a saw. Gardening, scrapbooking, crafting and an incredibly supportive family round things out. Along with homeschooling our children and writing, I work from home with my Intuitive Consulting business. I would love to hear from you.

  

 

Read an Excerpt

They’d kicked off the evening with Caryn telling them all about her latest sexy hookup, in very graphic detail.

     Gia couldn’t remember the last time she’d had graphic details worth sharing.  Not like Caryn’s, which included a Thai restaurant after hours, coconut martinis and silk scarves.  But that was Caryn.  She saw something she wanted and she made it happen.  Sometimes it happened with curry.


     Or there were the impossible-to-compete with details of Jessa’s Caribbean cruise last year.  On the first day, she’d met her dream guy, spent the next five days being romanced and five nights being sexually worshiped.  Then, to top it off, she’d brought the guy home and married him.

     And Sara, well, Sara had almost too many details.  Dramatic details, sure.  But they were still details.  This month she couldn’t decide if she was in love with a guy she’d met at a club last month or her ex-girlfriend who kept calling.  Sara bounced from sexual adventure to heartache to despair and right back in lust again.

     And then there was Gia.  It wasn’t like she was the sad and lonely friend.  She’d had boyfriends.  She’d enjoyed plenty of good sex and knew her way around an orgasm.  But none of her adventures included scarves, cruises or kink.

     Not like her friends.

     Jessa was the princess.  Pretty, pampered and sweet, she’d always inspired guys to fall at her feet.

     Caryn, on the other hand, was a ball breaker.  She had a plan and worked it.  She had guys at her feet, too, but usually on a leash.

     Sara flew through life, and sex, like it was an all-night buffet and she was starving.   She never stayed still long enough for guys to even find her feet.

     And then there was Gia.  Good ole average Gia. Dependable, nice, cute.

     Not phenomenal.  Not horrible.

     Just average.

     Average sucked.

     “Gia?  What’re you craving?” Jessa asked from where she lounged on the couch, her head back on the pillow to better enjoy the moisturizing benefits of her facial mask.

     Slicking another coat of midnight crimson polish over her nails, Gia absently finished her thought aloud,  “A wild sexual adventure that includes chocolate, feathers and three dozen orgasms?”

     The room went silent.  Even the iPod, playing Rihanna in the background, seemed to quiet.

     Oh shit.  Had she said that aloud?

Gia looked up to find three sets of eyes locked on her in varying states of shock and amusement.  She winced, then carefully pushed her martini glass away..
