Blog Tour: The List by Tawna Fenske (Review + Giveaway)


As the millionaire owner of a chain of computer shops, Simon Traxel isn’t normally hands-on with mundane repairs. But when a fretful brunette shows up with her fried laptop and killer green eyes, he makes an exception. And as it turns out, she needs more hands-on help than Simon imagined.

Brainy soil scientist Cassie Michaels has spent her whole life feeling like a grungy tree trunk beside her delicate flower sisters. To make herself more interesting, Cassie invented stories about her wild sex life—stories she’s expected to retell in vivid detail at a bachelorette party. Cassie’s attempt to catalog her biggest whoppers goes awry when she spills wine on her laptop and lands in Simon’s shop with her sexy list frozen on the screen.

But Simon’s interest is piqued, and the two strike a deal to make Cassie’s make-believe sexploits a reality. From steamy public romps gone hilariously awry, to sexy antics with kitchen utensils, their quest to conquer The List is equal parts scorching hot and adorably awkward.

As they near the end of The List though, Cassie and Simon second guess their pledge to shake hands and say goodbye when they cross off the last item. But will Simon’s big secret make that the one fantasy that can never come true?

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

The List was another great contemporary romance by Tawna Fenske. I haven't read much from this author yet, but The List is definitely my favorite book by her so far and is going to be a tough one to outdo. This book was pretty much perfect in my opinion.

First off, I just really loved the idea of The List. I swear, making up wild sex stories is something I would totally do for the hell of it and because of that I found the fact that the heroine did this absolutely hilarious. And going off of that, it was even more entertaining to be along for the ride as she attempted to actually do everything on the list. The way that the author had everything play out was so much fun and of course crazy steamy. And I loved it so much!

Along with a fun and sexy plot, this book had some really great characters. Cassie was a heroine who was really easy to relate to. So was so normal and likable and I loved reading about her. Simon was also a really likable character. He wasn't perfect though and I did find myself getting frustrated with him at times especially when it came to how long he kept the fact that he was wealthy from Cassie. I understand why he did it at first, but he hid it for way too long in my opinion.

Despite the fact that I felt that I was kind of annoyed by how long Simon lied to Cassie, that did not affect my love of the love story in this book. Cassie and Simon's romance was everything I needed it to be and so much more and by the end the author left me a puddle of happiness.

Overall, as I said already this book is as of right now my favorite Tawna Fenske book. It was a very satisfying romantic comedy read and now I'm even more excited to read more books by this author.
