ARC Review: Wanting It all By Christi Barth
Wanting It All
Naked Men Series, Book 2
Published by Loveswept
E-Book, 224 pages
In the follow-up to Risking It All, hailed by Lauren Layne as “the perfect escapist read,” the heartthrobs of the Naked Men blog and podcast get a little too real about friendship, love, and sex. For one wealthy bachelor, the trouble starts when all three collide. . . .
After narrowly surviving a bus crash in high school with his best friends, science geek Knox Davis resolved to become so successful that he could have anything and everything he wants. Now he’s über-wealthy, a huge business success, and a notorious ladies’ man. Knox refuses to limit himself to one woman, but when his latest conquest—a blond beauty from the Alaskan bush—challenges his superficial ways, Knox begins to see the world through her eyes, and finds he likes what he sees.
A nurturer at heart, Madison Abbott wants to put down roots. She left Alaska to meet Mr. Right—and to track down Logan, the half-brother she’s never met. Instead, she finds Knox. Although the sexy-as-sin bachelor may not seem like marriage material, Madison’s starting to think that Knox is The One. But Knox refuses to settle down, especially once he learns that Madison is his best friend’s little sister. Now it’s up to her to convince Knox that she’s everything he really wants.
Knox Davis was the resident nerd and charity case. After surviving and almost fatal accident, he makes it his mission to make more money than he knows what to do with, enjoy every pleasure he can and lose his flippin V card. Fast forward years Knox used his geeky brain and became a very businessman. He’s also a little bit of a man whore too. Relationships are not his style and women only last for about a night. The man lives life to the fullest. Hard and fast, until a super sweet blonde knocks his step off and he finds himself want more.
Madison Abbott has a mission for herself. Moving across country to find her dream job, meet a half-brother she’s only discovered and find the perfect man to marry. With one of three of the girls out of the way, Madison gets knocked from nowhere with goal three while working on goal number two. Making this tenacious woman show you just what she’s capable of.
Christi Barth gave readers a fun and witty story with Wanting It All. Madison and Knox are perfect for each other. His brashness and her tenacity keep the pages flying as these to explore the chemistry between them. I loved the back and forth banter between the two. I also enjoy the dates and wish I was in her place for a few! A quick read with a perfect balance of passion and fun.
