Caitlin Ryan has never had an orgasm—and she wants one! So does she

(1) Date lots of Mr. Nice-but-Wrongs and keep faking and hoping?

(2) Do a little DIY with a battery-operated friend and a lot of imagination?

(3) Go to NYC and have a wild night with a totally hot stranger?

When (1) and (2) don't work, Caitlin goes for (3). But even with motorbike-riding sex god Liam, old habits die hard, and yet again she has to fake it. Only he notices—and is not happy! Could things get any worse? Well, yes, when Liam becomes her new boss. But when Caitlin reveals that she's never climaxed, Liam rises to the challenge, offering a weekend of hot sex with the only goal her pleasure. Will letting him take control work? Caitlin can't resist finding out….

Harlequin has been releasing these Cosmo Red-Hot Reads for a while now, and they have been kind of hit and miss for me. Some of them have been really fun reads that I have enjoyed, and others I think could have benefited from being longer in length and because of that the characters and I never really bonded. I did like this book, I liked Caitlin and I liked Liam. I thought it was a run read, quick and easy, and I felt like there was enough character development within the book to make the novella work.

So Caitlin has just moved from Dublin to the Big Apple and the first thing she does when she is there is have a one night stand with a hot and sexy guy, Liam. Only Liam ends up not being so much of a one night stand. Apparently Liam is the kind of guy who doesn’t appreciate it when a woman he is with fakes an orgasm. Liam is beyond shocked when he finds out she has never had an orgasm and proposes a weekend of fun times in order to make sure Caitlin finally gets to experience the big O.

This novella is much more heavy on the between the sheets action then some other romances, but I didn’t think it detracted from the story of these two people, there is definitely a sweet romance going on between the two of them and its fun to read it and experience it with them. If you are looking for steamy short read then this might just be the one for you.
