The Seduction of Kinley Foster (Off the Wall Proposal Romantic Comedy) by Lisa Wells

Librarian Kinley Foster wants to write erotic romance—the steamy, sexy, curl-your-toes kind of stuff. The problem? She desperately needs a little erotic inspiration. And at a romance convention in Vegas, she finds it...or rather him.

Literary agent Ian Thompson is a professional. Mentoring an aspiring author is one thing, giving her a thoroughly satisfying sexy education is quite another. Especially when she's as stunning and deliciously curvaceous as Kinley. Yet Ian can't help himself when Kinley makes him a wager he can't resist. A wager that will tempt Ian to cross every professional—and every sensual—boundary in the book...

I received this ebook on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I'm totally confused and in love with this book. You know how I get with the books I really enjoy - spoilers...possibly. I'm in love with it because it has all the tropes and catnip that I adore: kinda friends-enemies-to-lovers, possessive/jealous on both sides, both POVs, the story takes place at a romance book convention (meta!), sassy-geeky heroine, hot-sweet hero, misunderstandings galore, etc. This book was long, well-written, and it made have so many feels. Thisis why I'm also confused by it. The story of Kinley and Ian brought about a sense of nostalgia for me which is the STRANGEST feeling I have EVER gotten from a romance read. In Seduction, Ian is Kinley's big brother's best friend. Kinley has known Ian since she was a kid (he is 6 years older than her) and has harbored much love for him since then. However, due to some misunderstandings, Kinley has hated him since she was 16 and has tried (and failed) to forget about Ian. I'm gonna tell you what happened because I need to process it. No worries, skip this part if you want to be surprised, I'll start a new paragraph to continue after this. So, apparently when Kinley was 16 years old, she arrived at Ian's place and promptly tripped into his arms, kissed him, and asked him to be her first. Ian, never forgetting their ages, and that she's his best friend's little sister, tells her "no." Kinley is understandably stung at the rejection, but to make matters worse, a naked girl comes out of Ian's bedroom. I won't tell you who the naked girl is - she's pretty important to the story. So - why the nostalgia? Obviously, to me anyway, I did not do what Kinley did, BUT I do remember that age when it wasn't difficult to put yourself out there. Of wearing your feelings on your sleeve, and the decision of placing all your expectations, dreams, wishes, and love in this one person in the sheer hope that the person, who has your heart in their hand, will tell you that they love and want you too. It also brought about the crushing reality that is rejection - in the only way a 16 year old can really understand. So this story really took my feelings for a whirl - it's the ultimate kinda-revenge fantasy where everything that wasn't or couldn't be said as teenagers/kids is fair game as adults. It's the ultimate, what if. It also did not hurt that I loved our heroine and hero. Kinley is the perfect amount of sass and romance geek. She is someone who takes her dreams seriously and looks to be better and better with each experience. Ian is sweet, hot, sometimes an arrogant jerk (but not really) who decided to forge his own career path than to fall into the family business. And he's good at it. Their banter is fun, and even their jabs at hurting the other with memories was interesting to read. I loved this story about two people who are oblivious and afraid of their feelings. It's such a human thing to read about. This book kind of broke my rules for what I usually enjoy in romance reads (I don't want to tell you - just think really hard about the stuff that I usually hate in romance books...). If you like stories like this, pick this book up. It has skyrocketed to my number one fave for romance reads. I looked into other Lisa Wells books, but did not really come up with any :( Let me know if you find one I missed!

Kinley Foster heads to Vegas to sell her first romance novel and hopefully get an agent. Love in between the pages was the only love she thought was real. Love of the other kind was doomed by an unrequited crush that smashed her heart in pieces. Now life was going to change for her. That is until HE returned to her life in the flesh. Ian Thompson promised his old friend that he would watch out for his little sister in Vegas. It shouldn’t be hard. However, when he catches up with her little girl isn’t how he pictures her. His mouth gets him in trouble after he makes a bet about helping putting the romance in her manuscript. Can he save himself from being burned or is he already in to deep? The Seduction of Kinley Foster by Lisa Wells is a rocking, sexy roller coaster that makes you want to book a trip to Vegas. Be warned though that there will be scintillating sex, spankings, and sex toys on an airplane. Oh my. Fasten your seat belts.

I received a digital ARC from the publisher through for an honest, unbiased review. My opinion is my own. Coming into this, I had heard of the "What Happens in Vegas" series, where over a dozen romance authors have written stories involving a Romance Novel Convention in Vegas. But I hadn't read any of the books yet. So, I will say "Thank You" to Lisa Wells for the sassy and sexy introduction to the series! Kinley is a character that many readers, like me, can relate to simply for the fact that she enjoys romance novels. So much that she has taken on the challenge of writing one herself. And I say "challenge" here not in that anyone challenges her, but that writing good romantic fiction takes finesse and skill. Though Ian certainly challenged Kinley in many ways. The "meta-ness" of this novel is really fun, and I thought the peek into being a romance novelist was great. There were parallels in the story between the characters and the plot itself, most notably the teaching of sexual tension and dialogue. Hell. Did he just use the word mollycoddle in his thoughts? He needed to cutback how many Regencies he was representing. Not altogether surprising, E.L. James and "50 Shades of Gray" get a nod or two. This made me think at first that the story would venture into BDSM territory, but there was very little of that. I was happy to find that since I am much more for a strong and sassy heroine. (I haven't read 50 Shades, but I don't think it's my thing.) Kinley fits the bill for "strong and sassy," though she also has some nice insecurities that round her character out well. I feel that she fits right in as a Romance-fan-turned-novelist. She pushed herself out of her comfort zone often, which is something that I, as an introvert, can really relate to. Ian as the love interest was also a character I liked, though I'm not sure I got enough of a view into who he was without Kinley. Overall, I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who is a fan of contemporary romance, especially those who wouldn't have a problem reading a story with very light BDSM and the use of toys.

The Seduction of Kinley Foster is another great addition to the What Happens in Vegas series. Kinley has always had a crush on her brother's best friend, Ian. After a humiliating teenage attempt of kindling romance, Kinley has avoided him for the past 10 years. She is now an author and Ian is a literary agent. Ian agrees to keep an eye on Kinley when he and she attend a romance writing convention in Las Vegas. Sparks fly as old feelings are reignited and as Ian pursues Kinley a good time is had by all. This series continues to be a favorite of mine in the Entangled Publishing line. I love how each story is similar, but completely different. This book is both sexy and quite hilarious. I loved the main characters and was happy with the pace and dialogue. If you like a fast read set in a fun setting, this book is for you!

This is part of the What Happens in Vegas series. Each book is a stand-alone. This book was cute, but didn't have the oomph to rate another star for me. Entangled always are enjoyable stories - this just wasn't a fave of mine. Kinley Foster is a budding romance novelist in Vegas for a romance convention when she runs into her brother's best friend, literary agent, Ian Thompson, who broke her heart a decade ago when he turned her down flat when she offered up her innocence. Kinley and Ian enter into a friendly, albeit sexy, wager that lasts for the duration of the conference. Primarily because they are both too stubborn (and scared) to admit they've developed real feelings for each other. This just didn't have enough chemistry for me to be pulled into the story. So while I enjoyed it - I wasn't drawn into either character. The steam factor was lacking for me as well.

I loved this book. Ian and Kinley had my interest peaked from the very first chapter. The barbs they traded were hilarious, and a great form of foreplay. But Ian also wanted to clear the air. Underneath his fine and hot exterior was a man with a loving heart and major attraction to his best friend's little sister. My goodness they were cracking me up with their banter. Kinley was a spit fire of a woman, comfortable in her own skin and wanting to become an erotic romance author. She was fabulous in her research and goading Ian into what she wanted. And he was sexy with his bargaining. Their history was very sweet until the incident. I loved their ending. They were sexy, funny, smoking hot, and tempting to each other in ways they had never felt before. Definitely a great read from a new to me author. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

Kinley Foster has wanted Ian Thompson for a long time. Over a decade ago, she offered herself up on a platter. After being rejected, her hate for him was obvious. Ian is still her brothers best friend. He comes to Vegas for business of his own. Willingly messing with Kinley's plans - if it means doing her brother a favor. She wants to kill them both. This book is full of sexy times. It was a good 2nd chance story, that pulled on my heart strings. There was also a bunch of surprises in store for the reader. Really good, and hard to put down. ***This ARC copy was given by Netgalley and its publisher in exchange for an honest review only.

I received an eARC, from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Librarian Kinley Foster but wants to move forward into writing hot, romance books. They only problem is that she is lacking in the knowledge of what she needs to get this done. Headed to a Romance Convention in Los Vegas she seems to find that one man that might help with solving her problems. Literary agent Ian Thompson and mentor to several different authors. But Ian does has his limits on what Kinley has in store for him....but she sets off with a bet with him to change his mind. This is a really hot, sweet, funny and easy read. Enjoyed having the chance to read this book.

This is a very fitting story line for a romance book! I think that this is a topic that we all take for granted when we read romance books, but it is definitely one that has to be explored if you want a good romance book to succeed! Kinley is a librarian that has decided she wants to take the leap and start writing romance books. Kinley decides that the best way to learn about this genre is to go to a romance convention where she can possible meet others that write the same thing she is wanting to. She never imagined that she would run into her old flame from when she was sixteen. Now, will the tables turn on Ian and Kinley win out this time? Ian is a literary agent and mentor to several authors in the romance book writing industry. Ian is also at the romance convention in Las Vegas where Kinley has decided to go. When Kinley see's Ian there, she knows that this is her chance to get revenge on him and to get her research that she so desperately needs to start writing her books. Kinley offers Ian an offer that he can not resist and they are off to do their research. The question is, will Ian be able to stay in his professional lane while helping Kinley or will he throw that all out the door and take what he wants from the sexy, seductress Kinley has become? This is a great friends to lovers book that you will not want to put down. I thought that it was very well done by Lisa Wells. I can't wait to see what is next from Lisa Wells for us readers. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion, which did not influence my opinion at all.

Wow, this is one hot romance novel. I loved the story, characters, and pretty much everything about this book. Chemistry between Kinley and Ian is off the charts. Kinley is a erotic romance writer. She is in Vegas to attend romance writers' convention. Ian is there to keep an eye on her, or at least that's what her brother thinks. But she is a grown woman and does not need someone to keep her out of trouble, or she thinks. But on this trip she is about to learn a lot of new things. Ian hopes that Kinley has forgiven him for what happen ten years ago. But apparently she isn't the forgiving type. In any case this trip is not about the past. He has made a promise to his best friend so he'll take care of her for as long as she is in Vegas and then they will both go their separate ways, probably never see each other again. Unfortunately things do not go as planned. And now they are both in trouble... Will they admit their love for each other or keep pretending otherwise? There are many laugh-out-loud moments in this book, some very touching, heartbreaking scenes, and extremely romantic ones too. I enjoyed reading it and hope that others do too. It's the best romance novel (on the more steamy side) I've read in a while. I'd definitely recommend it to all readers.

Librarian Kinley Foster wants to write erotic romance—the steamy, sexy, curl-your-toes kind of stuff. The problem? She desperately needs a little erotic inspiration. And at a romance convention in Vegas, she finds it...or rather him. The sizzlingly sexy guy who refused Kinley—and her virginity—when she was sixteen. Now it's time for a little payback. Literary agent Ian Thompson is a professional. Mentoring an aspiring author is one thing. Giving her a thorough and thoroughly satisfying sexy education is quite another. Especially when she's as stunning and deliciously curvaceous as Kinley. Yet Ian can't help himself when Kinley makes him a wager he can't resist. A wager that will tempt Ian to cross every professional—and every sensual—boundary in the book... Review: This is a wonderful addition to this fun and sexy series! Like all the other stories in the series the events take place in Las Vegas at romance convention. Which I have said before, I just love. This story centers around Kinley and Ian who grew up together and who Kinley has been in love with forever. Though because of a misunderstanding they have been at odds and not talking since it happened years ago. Fate, with a little help from Kinley's brother have brought them back together as Ian plays mentor to Kinley and not just the writing kind of mentor ;) ;) A lot of past hurts are brought up and it does not seem as though time can heal all wounds. As far as I can tell this looks to be this Author's first romance title and I think she did a great job. I was engaged with the story and characters. Her writing was spot-on and writing those important intimate scenes were executed well and did not come off at all like Kinley's first attempt. The characters really did have great on page chemistry and I kept hoping they would work out their problems. Great first foray into the romance world, I will be looking for more from this Author. 3.5Stars *Received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.*

This was a very cute quick read! Kinley enjoys her job as a librarian but her real passion is to become a writer of erotic romances. Problem is she is lacking inspiration. Hopefully she will find something that inspires her at the romance convention she's attending in Las Vegas. What she finds is Ian Thompson. Literary agent and the man who as a teenager refused all of Kinley's advances. He wants to keep things professional. She wants a little revenge. Will they both lose or perhaps will they end up having the time of their lives??? A fun quick read I would recommend.

The What Happens in Vegas novels are enjoyable reads for me. The writers, location and heat have cast an unbreakable spell on me. However, Ms. Wells takes the gold medal with The Seduction of Kinley Foster. There was not one scene that was not immensely funny. With a name like Kinley you know the story is going to be unique. When you add in the middle age sex toy peddlers it goes from rare to hilarious. I received a copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. A seductress in training from the man who broke her heart, to succeed in the most unlike of careers. Priceless!
