Book Review: The List by Tawna Fenske


The List

(The List #1)

by Tawna Fenske





It all starts with a list.

A sex list.

Cassie Michaels comes up with a list of naughty experiences to impress her sisters and finally convince them—and herself—she’s not just a boring soil scientist. Unfortunately, it also makes Cassie a liar if she doesn’t tick off at least some of the kinky exploits before her sister’s bachelorette party. Luckily, she’s found just the man to help her, starting with number four—sex with an anonymous stranger.

As the owner of a chain of computer shops, Simon Traxel doesn’t deal with mundane repairs, but when a brunette with killer green eyes and a list of sexploits frozen across her computer screen shows up at one of his shops, he’s ready to get a little hands on.

Simon’s more than willing to have some fun helping Cassie turn her made-up adventures into reality. Between steamy public romps that go hilariously awry, and sexy antics with kitchen utensils, getting through a to-do list has never been this much fun. But nearing the last few items means nearing the end of their time together, and Simon isn’t ready to let her go…

Favorite Quotes:


I’d pegged him as more of a computer geek than a gym rat, but apparently the two can coexist. I open my mouth to say something, but close it fast so I don’t drool.


She’s wearing a low-cut white top and a tiara that suggests she’s either part of a bachelorette party or a misguided member of the royal family.  


This was your chance to tell me some porn-star tale about how you nailed two chicks at once with your massive meat want and left them both begging for more.



My Review:


I giggle-snorted and smirked my way through this delightfully naughty and smartly written tale.   Tawna Fenske has obviously been blessed by the goddess of words as her skills for witty and humorous word-craft are far beyond mere human ability. The storyline was engaging, entertaining, atomically steamy, and well paced, while the writing was crisp, clever, and highly amusing. I cannot imagine the painstaking research required for such an in-depth exposé and sincerely want to express my appreciation for her efforts, as the results were simply breathtaking.
