Goddess Fish Book Tours Presents: Acidental Sex Goddess, by Lexi Ryan

Promotions director Reese Regan isn’t a sex goddess and doesn’t want to be. But the job of her dreams requires enrollment in the renowned Sex Goddess 101. To avoid a trip to the unemployment line, Reese must pass the program and become Chicago’s next seductress—or at least fake it convincingly. Her best friend, the ruggedly sexy contractor Ben Hawk, helps her “fake” her way through the program, and the heat between them flares. When trust is broken and secrets are revealed, it appears they’ve traded years-long friendship for temporary passion. Will faking something so important cost them their chance at something real?


Ben stifled a grin. “Please tell me she’s making you burn your bras.” He signaled to the door with his thumb. “I think I have some lighter fluid at the house.”

“What? Of course she’s not.” She scowled. “Cripes. I hope not.”

Ben’s eyes dropped south for a second. “You know, bras are a sign of repression.”

She rolled her eyes. “Stop being a dork, and read the letter.”

Ben frowned. “You’re taking this program more seriously than I thought you would.”

Reese snorted. “No, I’ve just gotten really good at faking it.”

“The new outfit doesn’t look fake. Or the makeup.” He crossed his arms, realizing what had been bothering him since she walked in the door. “I thought you hated contacts. Where are your glasses?”

She waved a hand dismissively. “Just read it.”

Say goodbye to your panties. For the next week, you’ll be going commando, forcing your mind to acknowledge the parts of your body too often left as an afterthought.

He grunted. “No wonder my guys want their wives to sign up.”

“Spoken like a true male. Foregoing underwear isn’t sexy, it’s…it’s…unsanitary.”
He shook his head. “It’s sexy.”
“What if I’m doing yard work?”
She crossed her arms. “Or I’m working out?”
“Still sexy.”
Reese leaned forward. “Or want to wear a skirt?”
Ben narrowed his eyes. “Now you’re just tormenting me.”

SLAVE's Review:

What started out as a slow and tedious story actually tuned out to be a great read. Accidental Goddess, by Lexi Ryan turned out to be a relaxing tale about (pretty much) a woman coming of age or actually coming to grips with her feminine wiles and taking control of her life in  all aspects. The character build up and story flow stayed perfectly in sync and keeps the reader entertained.
This story comes across as a safe read with a certain reality and passion that works great for the romance, unregistered love for self and those closest to you.

  1. Thanks for hosting today's tour stop!

    Hello to everyone stopping by today! I know, I know, it's Monday, but let's make this week awesome. I used to bribe myself with Starbucks to get my butt to work on Mondays, but I'm trying to stop that habit. Instead of sugary coffee, this morning, I have a new audio book loaded on my phone to listen to on my 45 minute commute. I'm listening to Lisa Gardner this time, a favorite of mine.

    Do you do anything special to motivate yourself out the door?
