Krystal Shannan Features - Accidental Sex Goddess by Lexi Ryan #romance @writerlexiryan


Accidental Sex Goddess
by Lexi Ryan


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Excerpt:

“Me? A Sex Goddess? Seriously, can you picture that?”

You have no idea. “Fake it,” he said with a shrug. When she scowled, he grabbed her hands and squeezed. “I’m serious, Reese. It’s five steps, right?”

“Ten.”

“Okay, so you’ll do ten things, pretend you’re one of her Slut Hotness converts, and you’ll have the job of your dreams.” He shrugged again. “Fake it.”

She took a deep breath and some of the tension left her face. “Are you sure you’re not just saying this so you can see me wear skimpy clothes?”

“It’s an added bonus.”

She sighed and leaned her head against his shoulder. “Thank you, Ben.”

Ben shut his eyes and resisted the urge to pull her body close. “Sure thing.”

Tucking his chin, he buried his nose in her hair, taking a hit of her scent, that soft and feminine smell that haunted him.

She drew away. “You seem different lately. Is something wrong?”

“Work stuff is getting to me.” And it was the truth, if only part of it. “I have big plans and dad—” He cut himself off with a shake of his head. He didn’t want to talk about Hawk Construction right now. He didn’t want to talk about anything. He wanted to keep her in his arms for as long as he could get away with it.

She studied him silently for a minute. “You want more,” she said simply.

She had no idea. And for the first time since he had knocked on her door six years ago, Ben let himself consider the possibility of taking what he wanted. 

Coming soon to iTunes, Sony, and Diesel

  2. Good morning, everyone! :) Thank you so much to Krystal for featuring Accidental Sex Goddess today!

    I'm in such a great mood this morning. :) It's been such an amazing week. I saw Text Appeal hit the top 100 at B&N and Amazon (can't help but crow about that!), I went to an AWESOME (though exhausting) training for work, and--cherry on top?--tonight my hubby and I are leaving town for the night and leaving the kids with his mom. (Imagine me running around in excited circles here!)

    Tell me about the best part of your week--whether it was a book or a promotion at work, I want to hear the good stuff today! :)

  3. So glad to have you Lexi! Congrats on the Top 100! That's awesome. My day is going to be fabulous today, because I have a waiver staff development day with all the elementary music teachers and I get to go out to lunch with my special buddies! So excited. I'm also pumped for Feb, because I have two new releases coming out!
    Hugs, Krystal

    1. Thank you, Anas! We'll have a great time. My SIL gave me a gift certificate for the Cheesecake Factory (we don't have one in the little town where I live, so it's a treat when I get to go). I see martinis and cheesecake in my future. What's not to like? :) Thanks for coming by today (and all the other days too!).

  8. Lexi...Even though I don't know you, it brought a smile to my face to read that you've had a great week. Your excitement is infectious. It sounds like you will be having a nice weekend too! For me, it's been kind of a boring week. My hubby and I had a lovely dinner out on Monday night. AND, I have to work tomorrow (Saturday), but I get off at 2:00 and da hubby and I will be going out for a late lunch and maybe to the beach if it's not too cold/windy. That would be very nice!

  14. Ok, I finally just gave in to my urges and bought this book! I need to finish the one I am reading and then get on this one :)
    My favorite part of the week was Monday when it was warm enough for capris and flip-flops! Now, we have lots of snow :( So not happy about that!

    1. June, hooray! After you've gone through all of these stops with me, I'm so excited for you to read it. I really hope you enjoy it. :)

      I'm glad you had some sandal weather, but to follow that with snow is just painful! It's chilly here but we don't have much snow.

      Thanks for coming by and for adding Accidental Sex Goddess to your collection.
