Book Tour: Accidental Sex Goddess by Lexi Ryan

VBT Accidental Sex Goddess Banner

Promotions director Reese Regan isn’t a sex goddess and doesn’t want to be. But the job of her dreams requires enrolment 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:

“I think I’m going let Mark take me out.”

His jaw ticked. “Don’t be stupid, Reese.”

“Wha—”

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.”

  1. Thank you for having me today! Your blog is adorable. I see that you had Linda Morris on your blog yesterday. *waves to Linda*

    (Psst! I know I'm supposed to be promoting my book, but you ladies *really* must check out Linda's New Year's Eve love story, Melting the Millionaire's Heart.)

    I want to welcome everyone who stops by today. If I don't reply to your comments right away, please know I'm not ignoring you. My littlest is home sick today, so I'll be at the computer when I can. :)

    1. Hi, Mary! I honestly don't know! LOL. ASG is actually a total rewrite of my first manuscript, which had a similar program in its center. It's just an idea that took hold and wouldn't leave me alone. :)

      Good luck!
