Accidental Sex Goddess by Lexi Ryan

Brought to you by Goddess Fish Tours.

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?

My Review
I love this book! I fell in love with Reese. And Ben and Luke are smoking hot! This book had a lot going for it. Sarcasm, friendship, heat, and intrigue. I loved that Reese was a size 14 and not a size 0! Reese finally finds her inner sex goddess and allows herself to go for what she wants. And what she wants happens to be her best friend. I loved the exchanges between these two. At times they were funny and others they would turn your blood into molten lava. Ben could make me sweat with just his words! All I can say is go get this book now! This is a definite must read!

Must Read!


“I assume you’ve moved past your drunken I want to be a slut plans.”

“Oh, I haven’t moved past it. I just know better sober than to believe I can do it.” She shrugged. “I’m not sex goddess material. Life goes on.”

Ben stared at her for a moment, then slugged back the rest of his coffee and headed toward the basement without preamble. Reese followed, humming softly under her breath, a sound low enough to sling shot his mind straight back to his fantasy, to the idea of her under his hands…his mouth.

“Hey, grumpy,” she said when they reached the bottom of the stairs. She tugged on his shoulder until he turned to face her. “Anything I can do to improve your mood this morning?”

“I can think of a few things.” He couldn’t help himself. He let his gaze travel slowly down her body, lingering at her curves and traveling so slowly back to her face he had enough time to picture every inch of her bare, exposed, ready for him.

When he returned his eyes to her face, a deep red blush stained her cheeks. “Ben!” She landed a soft punch to his solar plexus.

Ben lifted a shoulder in a half shrug. “You asked.”

“When was the last time you got laid?”

He knew down to the day, but he wasn’t about to share the truth with Reese—not when the date was just as significant in her life. “A few months.”

“Well, you need to do something about that.”

“You volunteering?”

  1. I can't wait to read this. I have already bought it but haven't read it yet. I do love friends-to-lovers stories and really could have used this list to become a "sex goddess" when I was younger (I have always been very shy).

  12. Your review hits all the buttons I like in a contemporary romance: sarcasm, friendship, heat and intrigue! I agree--size 14 gals rock. And I think size 14 is the average American size now.
