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

Two cousins who were condemned in their small town by the name they carry come back to seek revenge on the town that made their childhood a living hell. 

Cassie Tremaine is a famous underwear model that has a fan that is a little too much for her.  In order for her to get away, she returns to her home town and becomes bored within a few hours of arriving.

Feeling like the town needs to be shaken up a little bit, Cassie convinces her cousin to open a branch of her store, Bare Essentials, in the town. Bare Essentials is a lady’s store like no other, they specialize in naughty aspects for ladies and their men.

Not feeling that this is enough of a shake up, Cassie plans to take her revenge on the sheriff, Sean Taggot but we all call him Tag.  Unfortunately things does not go Cassie’s way when Tag wants more than what’s she willing to give.  

Running scared, would Cassie turn away from what could be the best thing of her life or would Tag think the same thing the citizens having been thinking for years “All Tremaine’s are no good.”

Kate Jones does not carry the Tremaine’s actual name, but she is one through and through. Agreeing to her cousins idea about opening a branch of her store, Bare Essentials, in their old home town was the first step in her revenge plan, Kate decided to up the ante by decided to have her revenge on the man who broke her mother’s heart.

Her plan is to seduce John Winfield Jr, (his son), make him fall madly in love with her and then dump his a** without even a backwards glance.  However Kate soon finds herself seduced by a sexy stranger named Jack who is to hot to handle and who would soon have Kate hoping for things she has no business wanting.

+Jill Shalvis and Leslie Kelly both wrote an amazing book.  +Jill Shalvis started the heat with her half of her story and Leslie finished it off with a fiery and smoking hot ending.   These two author came together and wrote a book that almost satisfied all my needs of a book.

There were some loose ends that were not resolved to my taste.  Why did they, (both of the couples) not discuss what was wrong with their parents?  Seriously, I was left incomplete on how they figured out how or why their parents ending up the way they did.

For those of you who did not grasp it, Jill Shalvis wrote the story about Cassie and Tag and Leslie Kelly wrote about Kate and Jack.  The greatest thing this book did for me was introduce me to a new author that I just HAVE to check out, Miss Leslie Kelly.  I have alreay read and LOVED Jill Shalvis’s books and you should too.   Read the book, I guarantee you will love it!
