Review: Misbehaving by Tiffany Reisz

misbehavingReviewed by Carrie

I loved this sexy novella from the author of the Original Sinners series.

Billed as an erotic reimagining of Shakespere’s, Much Ado about Nothing, this sexy follows Beatriz, a sex blogger.  Beatriz has a problem.  She needs to review a sex positions manual the weekend of her sister’s wedding and the only acceptable available man to help her out is Ben, a former crush from college that rejected her.

Fortunately, Ben is not about to look a gift horse in the mouth twice.  He (literally) jumps on the chance to finally get down and dirty with the girl that he desperately wanted in college.  There is no awkward tension as both main characters are very honest and comfortable with themselves and their sexuality.

The sex is not so much sensual as it is real.  Beatriz and Ben talk about the positions, ask each other about comfort levels, in other words, communicate.  As they work their way through the manual, it becomes apparent to both Ben and Beatriz that the feelings they had for each other long ago never really went away.   The cast of side characters only add to the story’s quirky charm.

Their banter is amusing and entertaining, in typical Reisz fashion.  The characters have brains and wit!  It’s really refreshing to read something that doesn’t take sex so seriously, but rather reminds readers that sex can be just fun!  I recommend this quickie if you are a fan of Reisz or are looking for something dirty and sexy.  Now, if only we can get the author to write a full length erotic rom-com…

  1. *nods* I agree, this was a fun, quirky quicky! Very different from her Original Sinners novels, but still good on it’s own.

    That would be interesting to see a full length rom-com from her. Again, very, very different from OS! LOL
