Petra Clark's blog Sexcapades inspires women to embrace sexuality. What readers don't know is that her advice isn't based on personal experience. Despite erotic fantasies about the hot guy at her local coffee shop, social anxiety keeps Petra from connecting with real men in the real world. She's more comfortable as PC, sparring online with her nemesis, the cocky D. Williams.

Counselor by day, blogger by night, Darcy Williams gets a thrill countering PC's female-friendly advice with a macho slant. And when both blogs are nominated for an award, he's intrigued by the chance to finally meet the woman who's been driving him wild with her Sexcapades.

When Petra runs into her coffee-shop crush at the awards party, sparks fly—and so do their clothes. Only after multiple orgasms does she realize who Darcy really is: the competition. Now they're facing accusations of fraud, with stalking and blackmail thrown in. But perhaps most frightening of all are the feelings growing between them…

SEXCAPADES is a fun, sexy romp, a delightful read that will engage romance lovers.

Petra Clark runs a blog inspiring women to embrace their sexuality. However, her advice isn't based on personal experience. Despite her crush with the hot coffee shop guy, she's more comfortable as PC, her online persona, and she likes sparring online with D. Williams, her nemesis.

When Petra's blog was nominated for an award, she attended the event, only to run into the coffee shop guy, Darcy. The sparks between them turned into a one-night stand. What happens when Petra finds out Darcy is really D. Williams, and that both their blogs are nominated for the same award? When accusations of conspiracy arose, how will they solve this mess?

Each chapter opens with a snippet from Petra's blog, then followed by D. Williams' rebuttal. Reading these was a hoot, and I love it! You can see the chemistry between these two bloggers, and when they finally meet in person, even if they didn't know each other's online identity yet, the air sizzles. These two are hot together. And very adventurous. I like how patient and understanding Darcy is with her, allowing her to get comfortable and experiment on him. You'll have to read the book to know what I'm talking about. *wink* Needless to say, it was hot. Pun unintended.

The story flowed well and the pacing was just right, with the right mix of romance and passion and suspense thrown in. Yes, someone's making threatening calls and trying to throw them both off the competition! Who knew the contest would be this intense? It adds a nice touch to the storyline, although I was jarred out of the story by an inconsistency. Not to reveal a spoiler, but in the real world, normally, relatives of the contest organizers or directors or even the employees of the company organizing the contest are prohibited from joining the contest, to prevent conflict of interest. With this, the suspense sub plot falls flat.

Still, that didn't deter me from enjoying the story and being swept along for the ride.
