A simple text leads to a case of mistaken communication and before long Riley Anderson finds herself tied to her bed and being driven to distraction. Beckett Manning, host of Room Makeovers, knows how to tease and torture every inch of her skin. He also knows his way around an orgasm, which keeps Riley wanting more. And more. And more.

Beckett is ready to give Riley more than a remodeled kitchen. He’s about to bring her to the edge of ecstasy and back. Whether it’s hot sex in the bathtub or Riley hog-tied to the bed, he’s determined to show this brazen beauty how desirable she really is.

Out with the old and in with the new was Riley’s unspoken motto as she took fate into her hands and decided to make a change. Little did she know that fate had different ideas for her!

Riley is sick of having her ex keeping her from moving forward in life. So she decides to take matters into her own hands, literally. After demolishing her kitchen which was a project on the ‘plan to do but never going to do’ list with her ex, she heads to the local home improvement store. Riley found a whole lot more then just new cabinets and countertops!

Beckett is the host of a popular reality show where he finds unsuspecting homeowners and helps them with room remodels. As soon as his eyes zero in on the fiery head of Riley, its lust at first sight. He hopes to himself she’s in need of him, and not just his TV show. When they finally met, the sparks fly! After accepting Beckett’s help, they begin a path that not only fixes Riley’s kitchen, but her tattered pride as well.

I thought the plot was fun for this book, and overall its a sexy story. But there were some things that were just a little off. One was character development for Beckett, yes he’s a good guy and a hunky TV host. But other than learning he likes some kink with his sex, we don’t know anything else about him. And his friend/co-worker Patrick didn’t seem to fit with his constant nagging.

However, Riley was a refreshing take on a strong woman. Despite her misgivings about her previous sex life, she went full court press and was honest and open with Beckett. My favorite part of the book is the text messages, which I won’t ruin. The first one had me almost spitting my drink out. And Amber Skyze can really write some sex scenes, don’t worry there are plenty here!

I noted that this has BDSM, but I will say it’s very light but there are a couple scenes that put it over in that grey area so I thought it would be a safe bet to mention that. Overall its a sexy read, and one to read with a tall glass of ice water!
