"Forget Fifty Shades; this is the only Grey romance readers need."—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

Lexie Bellamy can handle a boardroom. Relationships, however, are a minefield that always blow up. When a business trip takes her to Spain, Lexie knows she'll have no problem closing the deal. But spending uninterrupted one-on-one time with her crazy-hot coworker might be more than she can take.

At the office, Lexie gets to call the shots. But this trip is the perfect opportunity for Dane Huntley to show his gorgeous boss how good it can feel when someone else takes charge...

Miles away from home, giving in to Dane's naughty commands feels so easy. But when the trip is over, Lexie's determined to go back to their professional relationship. Dane, though, has other ideas. He'll have to prove that what they've found together is real... and he has no intention of letting go.

"A must-read... lyrical, stunningly sexy, and brings swoons for days."— CHRISTINA LAUREN on Seven Nights to Surrender

AudioBook Review: Stars: Overall 4 Narration 5 Story 4 The first I’ve listened to from this Author/Narrator pairing, Lexie is a determined, bold woman: able to deal with the most difficult situations that the boardroom can produce. Interpersonally, however, she is a bit of a train wreck: her dominant personality in the boardroom doesn’t translate to relationships, and the end is always a catastrophe. She’s understandably reluctant to take yet another chance on a relationship, so her life feels unbalanced, but she’s also not about to add yet another item to her plate at the moment. Work is crazy busy, and the acquisition of a Spanish company will require hours and travel. But, her control and capable management style is hard won, and with the return of her brother to the helm bringing those ‘you’re not quite enough’ feelings from her family dynamic, she’s ready to head out and fight fires elsewhere. Lexie’s assistant Dane is competent, charismatic and drop dead gorgeous, but Lexi is less concerned about his ability to perform the job than being alone with hi, in Spain, for an extended time. Dane is happy to serve as Lexi’ second in the boardroom, but knows that underneath it all is a woman who needs to learn to relinquish control. And while this PA job isn’t his dream, and he still want to be a firefighter, the death of his brother and his attraction to his boss have him heading to Spain with a plan in mind. Grey’s writing is solid and clear: the characters arrive and reveal themselves and their motivations fairly quickly, and the snappy dialogue helps to define the dynamics in play. And make no mistake, power is a large character in this story: the holding, wielding, surrender, sharing and even the desire for become a palpable and definable presence in the story, giving a more realistic look at the fluidity of the dynamic, much as one would see in real life. Narration for this story is provided by Julia Duvall, and she fits the narrative voice for Lexi near perfectly. Hesitations where needed, edges applied when appropriate, Lexi was clearly present in all of her moments, with the subtle shifts to indicate the underlying emotion. Her clear switch to Dane and the other characters made each unique and distinct, it was easy to recognize and visualize each one. A wonderful performance that combined the author’s words and allowed the story to come alive. And be aware – this is an erotic title – so the steam, the interplay and the descriptions are hot, sensual and will steal your breath away. I received an AudioBook copy of the title from Hachette Audio for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Nine Kinds of Naughty sounds like its just going to be a sexy, easy read (nothing wrong with those) but it is so much deeper. Jeanette Grey creates characters that are both interesting & real- struggling with everyday issues. And she writes in such a way that you are swept into the story from the very first page. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

A tight paced, sexy and emotional read, this latest romance by Jeanette Grey features a workplace romance that breaks down the barriers between boss and employee in sophisticated style, with locales ranging from the US to continental Europe. Lexie is a workaholic female boss in danger of losing a position of power in her family company with the return of her wayward brother. Her assistant Dane is her right hand man for all things but he’s itching to show her what it would be like to let him be in control. The power exchange of a BDSM Dom/sub relationship is explored in several steamy scenes as their relationship outside of work develops. The author is very adept at writing deep point of view and it shows in the crafting of this story, with both Dane and Lexie’s thoughts and feelings keeping the reader fully engaged. The ages of the characters were a bit younger than I’d expect for the situations they find themselves in, but overall I really enjoyed the story. The conflict as Dane and Lexie struggle to redefine their working relationship and their new personal one makes for a page turning read and leads to a well-deserved happy ending. I would not hesitate to recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys BDSM romances. Nine Kinds of Naughty delivers an intense and steamy romance with strong and likable characters who find that being in control and letting go can be equally rewarding.

lexie bellamy knows how to rule the boardroom. she's been at the top of her game since taking the reins at her family company and keeping the whole thing afloat while her brother figured himself out. in nine kinds of naughty now that he's back in charge, she has to fight even harder to stay on top, to lean in, because as a woman, no one is going to give her more than one chance to succeed. and part of her success can be tracked back to her assistant, dane huntley. he knows what she wants before she even speaks the words. he's at her command, by her side every moment she needs him while he's on the clock. when he's not on the clock, well, she doesn't quite know what he does. his weekends are a mystery to her. but dane isn't really that mysterious. he comes from a firefighting family, and his older brother died in a fire. and since then his mother has kept him in a bubble, and to please her, he's lived his life inside the lines. taking a temp job that becomes an assistant job. and keeping his weekends to be his true self, the dominant, risk-taker he is meant to be. when lexie and dane are tasked with a work trip to spain to manage a merger negotiation, the sexual tension simmering between them hits a boiling point. dane knows that what lexie needs is for him to take control. he knows her like no one else, and he knows exactly what she needs. even if she isn't quite ready to accept it. and once she does give in, she discovers exactly what she needs in dane's arms. but as they work through lexie's issues, dane is working through issues of his own. when lexie's brother is injured in a car accident and they spend time in the hospital with him, dane realizes that he can no longer take the stifling life inside the bubble. what he doesn't realize is that this is counter to lexie's plans of corporate domination with dane by her side. and so his need to be himself comes directly into conflict with lexie's fears of abandonment. they get a little help from lexie's brother on figuring themselves out, but they do get there. and their story is sexy, emotional, and well-worth reading. **nine kinds of naughty will publish on february 7, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/forever (grand central publishing) in exchange for my honest review.

This was an absolutely fun, sexy, hot, wicked, and naughty read that brought not only love, lust, romance but also trust into this lovely read. Lexie and Dane work together and in the boardroom Lexie is the boss. Lexie is a strong and independent woman and can and does keep control of all things in business. However, after hours her assistant Dane has recognized she may need to let go and submit to her desires and good thing he is just the one to be there for her. I came into this series on this book and did not feel lost and would deem this a standalone. **Received this ARC for review from the publisher via NetGalley**

The Art of Passion Series is a new one for me. It’s been quite a while since I’ve read a romance novel with BDSM themes, but I have say, once I read this book, I was reminded why I enjoy reading those types of books. They are stories built on trust, romance and love. And yes, these types of books are filled with lots of sex, but you know what, it’s nice to get swept up in a story that’s out of your norm. Now, I know I’m jumping here at the third book, but the good news is, this book/series can be read as a stand-alone. Nine Kinds of Naughty is intriguing, sexy and utterly captivating. This story will suck you in and the chemistry between Lexi and Dane just burns up the pages. Nine Kinds of Naughty is sexy as hell and will leave you breathless. This story will push your limits and keep you begging for more. Nine Kinds of Naughty was a fantastic read. It was incredibly well written and entertaining. The characters are intriguing and keep you coming back for more. I loved the romance of the story and the incredibly steamy, sexy moments. Jeanette Gray is a new author to me and I have to say, I am super excited to read more from her in the future.

Lexie Bellamy pours every bit of herself into her work, she is a determined woman who always gets what she wants, and calls the shots every step of the way. With a big business deal on the line she decides the best way to handle it is to give it the personal touch and make a trip to Spain and get this done the right way. But when her and her assistant land in Spain the tables are quickly turned, and for once Lexie surrenders the reigns and lets someone else take charge... and the minute she does things get HOT! HOT! HOT! Day after day Dane Huntley takes orders from him gorgeous boss, and day after day he fights his urge to make his move on her, but when they take their work overseas the rules of inner office romance go out the window. Now for once Dane is calling the shots, and Lexie is all his... and he loves every minute of it! This was my first time experiencing the work of Ms.Grey, and all I can say is WOW!!! I had read a few reviews going in and thought I had a good idea of what to expect, but the minute I started it I knew nothing could have prepared me for this seductive little literary escape!! Watching these two circle around one another was thrilling, they had me teetering anxiously on my seat waiting for them to finally give into the passion brewing between them, and when they finally did it was like a fourth of July show in my living room! I've got to say it's definitely one of the most satisfying first reads I have had in a while, and I look forward to submersing myself into more reads from this author in the very near future!! If you like your fairy tales a little on the spicy side, with a bossy alpha at the helm, then look no further this may just be the perfect read for you! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.

Dane is a complicated man. By day his focus is on business, hiding his true self behind business suits and corporate duties. By night he lives for the pleasure, releasing the untamed animal in his soul. A man of many appetites, guilt, grief and responsibilities are at the center of shadowy existence. Until he meets Lexie and his two sides merge into one. Lexie has chameleon like qualities of her own. A good girl driven by her career, she's hardworking. She hides her insecurities behind a wall of competence and distance but inside she's a naughty girl with a need to unleash her wild side. Will these two wounded souls be able to bring each other into the light? Nine Kinds of Naughty is a temptation, that is not to be denied. Ms. Grey seduces her readers while at the same time breaking their hearts. An entrancing combination.
