Review of "The Naughty List" by Jodi Redford

Publisher: Samhain

Release Date: November 29, 2011

Buying Links: Amazon     Samhain

Book Blurb (from Goodreads):

Makin’ a list, and rocking it…twice. 

Perpetual good girl Lacey McGuire has two Christmas wish lists. One suitable for public consumption…and a private one that’s too hot to handle. Right at the top: wild, wicked fantasies about her best buddies and business partners Ryan Hollister and Bram Colton.  
Besides the fact they’re both poster boys for Hunks ’R’ Us, they’ve been there for her through thick, thin and the heartbreak of a cheating fiancé. So what if her boys will never know they star in her sexiest daydreams? In her fantasy world, her heart will never get trampled again.

Ry and Bram are pretty sure Lacey never meant to email a list of some of her raunchiest wants. Particularly the one that tightens their shorts—she wants a threesome. With them. Although they’ve loved her for years, they made a pact to keep Lacey off limits in order to protect their friendship. Now all bets are off. And the quest to give her all she wants—and more—is on.
Warning: This book contains a wickedly hot M/F/M ménage that will heat up the holidays. Friends steaming things up in a hot tub. Bondage and blindfolds. Sexy shenanigans at a Christmas tree lot. And maybe even a glimpse of Santa…in a Speedo.


"We're going to test your multitasking skills. The idea is to have all of us come together. You up for it?" An agonized sound came from Bram as he leaned over her. "I'm seconds away from blowing." "Tough. Count baseball stats or something."

My Thoughts:

I usually enjoy Ms Redford's writing. I've read all of the books in her That Old Black Magic series and enjoyed them. This was the first non-paranormal work of hers that I'd read. Maybe it was the lack of paranormal trappings but I didn't enjoy this one as much. It was hot and sexy like her previous books, but the cliches and tired writing were more apparent in this story.

She even put a little sashaying hip action into her walk. More than likely she looked silly and uncoordinated as a one-legged duck, but with no one around to judge, she didn't give a hairy rat's behind.
Despite his having just come his brains out, his c**k thickened with renewed life.

The ending was abrupt and felt unreal but, it was a decent story, if not Redford's best. Bram and Ryan were presented as alpha males though neither one really felt like it to me. The dynamics between the three of them were well done and all of the characters were likable. I'd have liked to see more depth to them but that was partly a function of the story length. I do like the way Redford writes love scenes and there is no lack of them in the story. :D Overall, hot and sexy, with adequate writing.

I received the ebook from the author for review.
