Book summary:

Wanted: Adventurous, open-minded man willing to try anything…

As a popular sex blogger, Beatriz gets paid to have orgasms. So being on deadline the week of her sister’s wedding isn’t as rough as it sounds. There’s just one hitch: Bea’s assignment is to write a review of a sex position manual, but she doesn’t have a plus one to play with.

The good news: Ben, the one who got away back in college, is also attending stag--and he's as temptingly gorgeous as ever.

The bad news: Ben turned down Bea’s offer of graduation night sex five years ago.

The best news: He’s not planning on making the same mistake twice.


A red-hot retelling of Much Ado About Nothing for people who love Shakespeare but thought his plays could use a few more sex scenes.

My review:

Tired of emotionally draining books that make you bawl your eyes out?
Looking for a light, sexy and funny read? 

 Well, look no further, cause this is fun!

I admit, I'm not Shakespeare's biggest fan. I probably have Much Ado About Nothing somewhere amongst my books; I just never had the desire to read it, but this is Shakespeare I could really get behind.

I liked Misbehaving for a few reasons. 
1. I'm a huge fan of the author's work. Her Original Sinners series is my favorite series ever, and although this is very different from it, being pretty vanilla and all, I still enjoyed it very much. It's got Tiffany written all over it.
2. Since this is a novella, there isn't much written about the characters, but what I did read was enough for me to like them.
3. It's full of sexy humor. I wasn't just once that I laughed out loud at something these characters said.

4. It's short. I usually prefer long books, but when there's a lack of free time, short is good.
5. Oh, and there's a mention of one of my dear Sinners.

Beatriz is a kick-ass female  lead. She's smart, witty, open, independent, confident, and reminds me a lot of Nora (you know who I'm talking about, don't you?), and she has the solution for making the world a better place, which surprisingly is a lot similar to Barney Stinson's theory about world peace. 

Not only is Bea awesome, but she also has the best job in the world. She basically gets paid to have orgasms. I mean, really, where do I sign up? Her latest assignment: to write a book review for The Manual, a book about sexual positions, and to do that she needs a partner who she can try those positions with.

Enter Ben, a ghost from the past. Ben is a sweet, funny guy, who fusses a lot about some minor details like what he's wearing, but he's adorable when he does that. He and Bea have some history together, and some unresolved issues. He is also the best candidate to be Bea's partner.

You just know it's gonna be interesting. And it was. It was also hilarious. Those two just cracked me up.

Since all of this was happening just before Bea's foster sister's and Ben's best friend's wedding, there were lots of situations with the bride and groom to be that added to the funny, especially the groom.

This really was a perfect read to take a break from all the angst.

Still not sure whether or not to read it?

Here's an excerpt.

I hope anyone who reads it has as much fun as I did.



  1. Oh sounds good. I love the ones where they have a past together.

    1. Me, too. Mostly because that past usually adds to the drama, and who doesn't like drama?
      But since it's a novella, there isn't much about their past, but enough to learn what happened or didn't happen between them. Not much drama, either. Mostly fun. :)
