Wanted: Adventurous, open-minded man willing to try…anything…

As a popular sex blogger, Beatriz gets paid to have orgasms. So being on deadline the week of her sister's wedding isn't as rough as it sounds. There's just one hitch: Bea's assignment is to write a review of a sex position manual, but she doesn't have a plus-one to play with.

The bad news: Ben turned down Bea's offer of graduation-night sex five years ago.

The best news: He's not planning on making the same mistake twice….

    Beatriz has the ultimate job!!
    I have loved each and everyone of Tiffany's books, but this one was so funny and clever. I literally
    laughed out loud. 
    Beatriz has a job reviewing and blogging, about sex books and sex toy. She is a woman who isn't afraid
    to try something at least once and is completely comfortable with herself. Then its time for her sisters
    wedding and she has a to produce a column for her boss on last minute notice. So what does Be a do?
    She grabs the first book off her desk as she rushes out the door. When she discovers its a manual on
    sexual positions she is perplexed on how she will review this one. Because Be a doesn't have a partner
    at the time. But she knows she will find one volunteer at least.
    Great funny and clever story about her life and how the past always catches up to you.

    ~Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog Quee

    ~Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog
    Queen of Kink, Tiffany Reisz has made a big shift for her first romantic comedy. But make no mistake! There is a ton of sexiness to go around. Beatriz, the popular sex blogger will ensure it.

    Off to attend her best friend’s wedding, Bea is just about to jump in a cab when her boss calls her and informs her that he needs a thousand new words from her to fill up a spot that another blogger can’t deliver on. Fussing about it won’t get it out of it so Bea agrees to a book review instead. The book up for experiment is a sex position manual. She’s all set! But she just needs to find a partner to help her out.

    Ben, Beatriz’s college friend and former love, is also attending the wedding. But when he learn that Bea is also there, his heart starts to thump erratically. He remembers the time when Bea displayed her feelings for him and he left her, naked and wanting. This time, Ben is determined to make it up to her and when he learns she needs someone to assist her with her work, Ben is the first to volunteer.

    Reisz has always had a knack for humor. However, that is showcased in its fully glory in MISBEHAVING. Rib-crackingly good, each page had me either smiling or forming tears in my eyes with some of the lines. I had such a good time reading it that it absolutely flew by.

    As expected, the sex scenes were all incredibly well –done. As I was reading, another reader commented that the talking between the sex grew tiring for her as it was not dirty talk. Now, I’m sure many of you already know my love for dirty-talk in my books, but I found that since this is a romantic comedy as opposed to a strictly erotic contemporary, the teasing and the light banter was suitable for each of the scenes. In fact, I enjoyed them so much that it made the romance between Ben and Bea more believable. You begin to see traces of emotion and learn it isn’t simply about work to get this review done.

    For a fun, and intensely sexy read, Tiffany Reisz has you covered. MISBEHAVING blew me away with its flirty banter, alluring characters and steamy as hell sex scenes. I’m confident that Bea would give this book 5 bees!Not only are the main characters interesting, but Claudia and Henry are absolutely hysterical as well. Their conversations and the big misunderstanding in the end just pushed me over the edge and had me grabbing my sides for comfort. I don’t think I have ever laughed so hard at a buttsecks joke. You win, Reisz. You win.

    Misbehaving. Tiffany Reisz. Review from Jeannie Zelos Book revi

    Misbehaving. Tiffany Reisz.
    Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
    Well, I just love Tiffany's Sinners Quartet ( and cant wait for the next ones, Soren.....*sigh*) so was keen to read this, even though shorts are rarely my choice. Its 108 pages long for £2.99 – not the cheapest but with Tiffany you get quality writing and a book that you can re read easily :)
    So, Beatriz..in many ways she reminded me of Nora from the Sinners. She's got that same open sexiness, cheeky sass and yet she's very loyal to her friends, and always willing to help. That's how come she ends up working on a week when she's on holiday at her sister's wedding. At last minute her boss needed help, and she'd offered to review a book, but the one she picked up quickly without checking was a sex positions one, and needed some hands on trials...and Ben, her one that got away is there at the wedding and very willing.
    I loved Ben, gorgeous, sexy and still as keen for Beatriz as ever. She's still feeling a bit rejected though from all those years ago...and then they talk, and find out more about what really happened.
    A great duo to star in this hot and sensual short. Its full of sassiness, snark, quick funny quips, gentle loving moments, and a little regret for lost opportunities. I loved it, made me laugh out loud, and the sex scenes were classic Tiffany, hot,erotic and sultry.
    Stars: its a TR book, five of course!

    In the Author's comments, Reisz apologies to the Bard for this book. I'm not entirely sure why, because I think he would have appreciated this bawdy bit of storytelling.


    I am a great fan of Shakespeare, have been since one of my best teachers gave me the keys to understanding his work. So it's always fun to see a talented author put a new spin to one of his stories without losing the essence of the original. Bea and Ben are so clearly their own characters, while still wonderfully representing Beatrice and Benedick. The great thing is, you can enjoy this book without being a Shakespeare fan.


    It's fun, light and hot. A great quick read. Tiffany Reisz has become one of my favorite authors. The kind where I can't wait for the next release, and will usually have them preordered to make sure I get them asap.



    And for those fans of her Original Sinners series...there's a giggle at the end for you. Keep your eye out for a certain rogue.

    I love the story and the premise of this book. I love how Ben and Beatrice had feelings for each other in college, 5 years before, but nothing happened and here they are united at Beatrice’s sister’s wedding.
    Tiffany Reisz does a great job with not dragging the story. The characters and the situation between them are introduced early. People are either going to love or hate Beatrice’s feistiness.  Not sure how I felt about her. It was hard for me to connect to her. That is the reason for my rating. Bottom line, I did not like her.  I loved Ben and the other characters like Claudia.

    4 1/2 stars. I expected lots of the smexy and it was delivered in spades, vanilla and not so vanilla. What I wasn't really expecting in the short format was the romance. The relationship between Bea and Ben was lovely and that there was more underneath was obvious right from the start.
    This is a reunion romance between two people who met at college, sparks flew, and yet they didn't quite hook up and Bea never really knew the reason why. Even Ben wasn't quite sure. So when they meet at Henry and Claudia's wedding five years later, there are bound to be fireworks.
    The plot device to get these two alone together was cute and really really hot. Just saying.
    I liked the little secondary romance between Henry and Claudia, the wedding couple. Overall a sexy, romantic read.

    My rating: 4.5 of 5 ¿¿ Scheduled to attend her foster sister

    My rating: 4.5 of 5 ¿¿




    Scheduled to attend her foster sister's wedding, Beatriz isn't happy with the last minute review for the successful sex blog she writes. It's an interesting assignment, but presents her with one problem, it requires a partner. Normally not hesitant to pick up any willing player to assist her, the wedding crowd is limited and the one person suited for the 'position' is Ben. The gorgeous temptation on legs, who turned her once already in college. She wasn't about to go there again.




    In college Ben had his reasons for staying away from Bea, although for the life of him, he couldn't remember them now. He doesn't need any convincing to assist Bea for the sake of research...... Except he could care less about the review, he just cares about getting another chance with a woman he should never have turned away in the first place.




    *****




    A fabulously funny and racy novella, loosely based on Much Ado About Nothing. I doubt William Shakespeare ever went in such explicit detail, which is why we love Tiffany Reisz, no detail is spared, very descriptive!




    Bea is a very passionate South American beauty who was fostered and went to school in the US. Very liberal, open and creative, she embodies a free spirit, strength and independence. She cannot be contained.




    Ben worked very hard to get where he is. Back in college he was in danger of being swallowed up by all that was Bea, but now a bit older and satisfied with who he is, he is more than ready for her.




    Absolutely adored the byplay between the more conventional couple to be married and Bea & Ben, who threw convention out the window. There is no judgement at all. There simply is an uninhibited enjoyment of sexual expression. And a ton of humour!!




    ¿Edgy, hilarious, hot and deliciously descriptive!!¿

    Wasn't What I Expected Or Wanted

    Wasn't What I Expected Or Wanted

    I am a huge fan of Tiffany Reisz's Original Sinners series so I jumped at the chance to read Misbehaving when it was posted for review on NetGalley. Unfortunately, other than the ending (which rocked for me cause well a certain Sinner was mentioned), Misbehaving just wasn't what I expected or wanted.

    Misbehaving is an erotic retelling of Much Ado About Nothing which is one of the reasons I wanted to read it so badly. I seriously lurve me some Shakespeare and was excited to see how Ms. Reisz would twist one of my favorite plays. Sadly, I just wasn't feeling it. That being said, it did deliver what it said it would in the blurb.

    A red-hot retelling of Much Ado About Nothing for people who love Shakespeare but thought his plays could use a few more sex scenes.

    While I liked the characters (which were hella funny at times), and it was a pretty smexy read (that is IF you like characters discussing things during the act itself), it just wasn't enough to keep me invested in Ben and Bea as a couple. Fortunately, Misbehaving was a short read or I may have DNF'd it. I give Misbehaving 2.5 stars.
