REVIEW: BARE ESSENTIALS BY JILL SHALVIS AND LESLIE KELLY

Naughty But Nice
by New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis

Lingerie model Cassie Tremaine Montgomery intends to have her revenge on the citizens of her hometown—starting with seducing the sheriff, Sean "Tag" Taggart. Tag, however, isn't cooperating. He's more than willing to set the sheets on fire with her, but he's asking for more than just sizzling sex…. He knows Cassie's not as tough as she pretends. And he knows she cares about him—even if she won't admit it. So he'll just turn up the heat until she concedes there's more between them than this red-hot passion.


Naturally Naughty
by New York Times bestselling author Leslie Kelly

Kate Jones, the girl from the wrong side of the tracks, is home. And she's got an agenda. To get revenge on the man who humiliated her mother, Kate's going to seduce that man's son—the town's golden boy, John Winfield Jr.—and then leave him drooling in a puddle of lust. However, when she finds herself seduced by a sexy stranger named Jack, little does she guess that the tables have just been turned….

Shel: If you like Kristen Ashley (and YOU KNOW we do!), then this is anthology will remind you a little of her. You have strong and funny female and male characters who resist (or try) the natural magnetic force that continually tries to pull them together. In Naughty but Nice Cassie has been so guarded that Tag has to have the patience of a saint to get her to see that he's not the guy. And in Naturally Naughty Kate has felt so wronged by the people of her home town it's really hard for her to be open to a genuinely good guy, Jack. As you can imagine, these two women make it difficult to get past all of the barriers erected but Tag and Jack see how worth it these two women are and are quite persistent in winning them over. 

Court: These two girls! Shee-it (hah). They definitely turn their home town of Pleasantsville (or more lovingly known as Pea-ville) upside down with their return. These two girls do not realize how bright their light shines, and they both let small town gossip and heartache affect them for a long, long time. I enjoyed this book in how both stories coincided so well together...and the journey for these cousins to get their HEA is hard fought, and lovely. Lots of feels, y'all. 

Shel: Between stalkers, mean old women, warm new friends, and some seriously steamy sex scenes, Jill Shalvis and Leslie Kelly will keep you entertained. Court: Yes! The steam! The feels. The shenanigans with all of these people...and especially the assumptions...because you know what you get outta that. And Cassie and Kate definitely get more than they bargain for in this coming home love story. 

Shel: Happy reading.
