    Fun flirty and sexy “You’re not shy you haven’t eased back from me yet In fact you’ve put both your hands on my chest”“Maybe I wanted to check out the muscles that hauled me away from near death”“Maybe we should start with exchanging names before you name my pecs” He was the perpetual nerd and charity case however Knox Davis vowed to himself to lose his V card make so much money that he would never want for anything and enjoy all of life’s pleasures after he survived a horrific accident along with this high school friends Now a successful businessman and infamous womanizer he’s never considered being in a relationship with a woman for longer than a one night of fun But when he literally sweeps a blond bombshell of her feet and she in turn captures his interest like no other he begins to uestion his resolve to be the eternal bachelor Madison Abbott moved across the country from Alaska to Washington DC to accomplish three things get the job of her dreams meet the half brother she just recently found out about and find the perfect man to marry and have a family with She's scored with the first one on her way to the second but has gotten a bit sidetracked by the deliciously smart self assured and sexy playboy Can she convince him that they'd be great not just now but forever even if she is his best friend’s little sister? I loved the premise behind the Naked Men blog and after reading Risking it All the first book in this series I was really intrigued with the group of men who were already close friends but became even closely bonded when they survived their ordeal in the Alps But none than the self made millionaire “He’d waited his whole lonely geek tastic life to finally have friends like this ho have the camaraderie the feeling of belonging” It was a complete delight getting to know Knox and Madison Each were endearing characters that when together had great chemistry fun and witty banter that made the pages fly by I enjoyed all the dates they went on be it outrageously expensive ones because Knox loved to spend his money to the low key ones because Madison couldn’t care less about his wealth Of course they all ended up with delicious sexy times “You’re beautiful Madison”“I thought we agreed on no foreplay Flirting counts as foreplay”“It’s an accurate assessment of reality Engineers like me get off on that Deal with it” “Okay then Your penis is amazing There’s a fact for you” Their relationship developed from lust to love at a pace that felt natural even when Madison was a bit too pushy for my taste They were a perfect match though both smart and stubborn who filled the empty places they had The supporting characters be them male or female gave the story a great friendship layer that nicely rounded out the story and has me ready to read the next book about Logan the elusive half brotherWanting it All is the second book in the Naked Men series by Christi Barth It’s a sassy sweet and fun contemporary romance great for a weekend read Told from both points of view With a happy endingAuthor's pinterest board I was given an ARC of this book courtesy of the author and Random House Publishing Group Loveswept via NetGalley The excerpts are from that copy More reviews Stalk us on FaceBook As well as Twitter Pinterest Board for Book Teasers

    A great story with a tenacious heroine Wanting It All is book 2 in the Naked Men series but it can be read as a standalone without feeling like you missed anything The author does an excellent job of letting you know facts about the group of men that the series is about Each title in the series is about an individual couple with appearances by the other characters in the group I really enjoyed book 1 which was my first book by Christi Barth but I loved book 2 which centers on Madison and Knox We met Knox in book 1; he is the scrawny geeky kid turned hunky multi millionaire of the group Knox has it all now money women falling at his feet and a group of men he considers his brothers but it wasn’t always so In high school he was the poor kid who wore hand me downs from his friends and he was a skinny geek that most of the kids made fun of That is until he was adopted by his group of “brothers” Now after his mom they are the most important people in his lifeMadison is the new girl in town She moved to DC with several goals in mind get a great job find a husband and connect with her half brother that she only recently found out about She meets Knox soon after arriving to begin her dream job at the Library of Congress They have an instant connection but as time goes on Knox a love ‘em and leave ‘em kind of guy doesn’t know what hit him and he gets scaredI loved that Madison was such a strong heroine; she’s a perfect match for Knox if he will just wake up and realize it She’s caring and thoughtful and truly enjoys everything she is experiencing in her new environment She’s a woman who knows what she wants and she’s not afraid to go after itMs Barth’s writing style kept me wanting to read this book straight through; so much so that I got irritated when life forced me to put it down This series is turning out to be such fun to read While this book doesn’t end in a cliffhanger – Madison and Knox get their HEA – it left me anxious to read book 3 Giving It All which will be about Madison’s brother LoganARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my review Review will be posted to Xtreme Delusions dot com on or after release date

    Slick's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsWanting It All is the second book in Christi Barth’s Naked Men series and it was a completely enjoyable fun and sexy story I love the set up of this series these men who have been friends since high school survived something horrendous and to this day remain friends who are like family This hero is smooth sophisticated smart and immensely wealthy and this heroine is brainy brave brash and a bit naive but they complement each other in every way and despite their very different ideas on relationships marriage and family being together at this time works for them bothDespite the hero’s man whorish ways I really liked Knox Davies but he’s one of those super intelligent people who only seem to see things in black and white or so the way he wants to see them So I loved when fresh out of Alaska Madison Abbott made him begin to uestion his just about all aspects of his life While I liked Madison there were times when I really couldn’t understand if she was just naive or incredibly self assured; I admired her for picking up her life and going after everything she wanted even when it seemed a bit crazy It was easy to see that people gravitated towards her and her outgoing nature made people comfortable with her right away and while I wanted her and Knox together I felt like she was playing with him without full disclosure and that bothered me a bitAs with the first book I loved the banter and camaraderie between the “Naked Men” and everything that seems to be coming down the line for them and I’m really excited that it looks like we’ll be seeing much of the elusive Logan soon My biggest complaint with this book was the ending seemed a bit rushed and unrealisticFun smart crazy and a whole lot sexy Wanting It All was engaging and entertaining and a delight to readReview copy provided for an honest review

    Reviewed at Keeper BookshelfWanting I All is simply a truly fun story The geeky kid who after surviving an horrific accident with his friends has come into his own promises to himself No longer a virgin – triple check that Make money than he can ever spend – got that one covered too Find the perfect for him woman and settle down whoa there Not in the plans Until he meets Madison and his views on life make a sudden change of heart She was supposed to be another one night stand right up until he discovered he didn’t want to spend one night without her When Knox finds out that the unknown brother Madison is searching for is in fact one of his best friends – things get complicatedWhat is it with guys? If I live to be 110 I’ll never understand the species This stupid bro rule I cannot get involved with my friend’s sister Really? Why notMadison is smart spunky intelligent and brave – absolutely everything that would make a perfect match for Knox But he’s dragging his feet on several levels Madison isn’t about to let Knox’s bullheadedness stop her from convincing him that they are a perfect match Their banter was priceless and often brought a loud chuckle from my reading cornerThese two have chemistry and it was such fun to read their romance and the bumps along the road as well If you’re looking for a fun sexy read that will have you laughing one moment and thinking sexy thoughts the next – then you need to start reading the Naked Men series You’ll have fun be entertained and watch some handsome men who think they know everything learn a few things about true love Highly recommend this oneI received an e ARC of Wanting It All from the publisher Random House – Loveswept and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review That does not change what I think of this novel

    I love a good romance with a happy ending and that's what you'll get here This group of guys are strong and funny and the women they choose have to be able to hold their own This is Knox and Madison's story From the moment they meet all the way through there are fireworks not with just the chemistry between them but their banter and their fights Madison had moved from Alaska to DC to do three things1 Find her brother 2 Find good friends and put down roots 3 Find a husbandSo you can guess what part she hopes the unattainable Knox will play in this The fact that she is Logan's half sister puts a bit of a kink in the plan but just a bit These guys were in high school together and played soccer on a team together While away for a tournament the tour bus crashed and burnt up leaving them hurt and without communication warmth and food for three days Since that day they have found a way to be in each other's lives whether by their blog Naked Men or now living together while continuing their blog and now their new podcast Logan has been out of communication bow for too long and they have been trying to find him It isn't until his sister who Knox has been seeing yes seeing regularly needs him to find him that he look in earnest Funny story cute and sweet with just enough bite A uick read and you'll be hooked on this series like I am I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review

    I loved Madison there were times she was straight to the point “I came here to bring the bread But yes I also came for sex” Down went his zipper “You don’t get to call all the shots And my break from the Library isn’t that long So we need to get to it” I really loved this book Knox and Madison were perfect for each other
