Virtual Book Tour & Giveaway: Accidental Sex Goddess by. Lexi Ryan

Accidental Sex Goddess
by Lexi Ryan


Promotions director Reese Regan isn’t a sex goddess and doesn’t want to be. But the job of her dreams requires enrollment in the renowned Sex Goddess 101. To avoid a trip to the unemployment line, Reese must pass the program and become Chicago’s next seductress—or at least fake it convincingly. Her best friend, the ruggedly sexy contractor Ben Hawk, helps her “fake” her way through the program, and the heat between them flares. When trust is broken and secrets are revealed, it appears they’ve traded years-long friendship for temporary passion. Will faking something so important cost them their chance at something real?


“Me? A Sex Goddess? Seriously, can you picture that?”

You have no idea. “Fake it,” he said with a shrug. When she scowled, he grabbed her hands and squeezed. “I’m serious, Reese. It’s five steps, right?”


“Okay, so you’ll do ten things, pretend you’re one of her Slut Hotness converts, and you’ll have the job of your dreams.” He shrugged again. “Fake it.”

She took a deep breath and some of the tension left her face. “Are you sure you’re not just saying this so you can see me wear skimpy clothes?”

“It’s an added bonus.”

She sighed and leaned her head against his shoulder. “Thank you, Ben.”

Ben shut his eyes and resisted the urge to pull her body close. “Sure thing.”

Tucking his chin, he buried his nose in her hair, taking a hit of her scent, that soft and feminine smell that haunted him.

She drew away. “You seem different lately. Is something wrong?”

“Work stuff is getting to me.” And it was the truth, if only part of it. “I have big plans and dad—” He cut himself off with a shake of his head. He didn’t want to talk about Hawk Construction right now. He didn’t want to talk about anything. He wanted to keep her in his arms for as long as he could get away with it.

She studied him silently for a minute. “You want more,” she said simply.

She had no idea. And for the first time since he had knocked on her door six years ago, Ben let himself consider the possibility of taking what he wanted.

Lexi is awarding a "pamper your inner sex goddess" gift basket (bath products, books from her backlist and candles - US ONLY) to one randomly drawn commenter, and a $25 Amazon or B&N gift card, winner's choice, to another randomly drawn commenter during the tour.

Author of both contemporary and paranormal romance, Lexi Ryan writes smart, spunky stories that sizzle. She enjoys reading, sunshine, a good glass of wine, and rare trips to the beach with her husband and children.

Lexi lives in Indiana where she divides her time between her family, her writing, and her job as an English professor. You can find her at her website: lexiryan.com

  1. Hello! Thank you for hosting today's stop on my VBT!

    Hi to everyone visiting today! Did you know it's my birthday week? My actual birthday isn't until Friday but I'm celebrating on facebook all week, so feel free to stop by. Let me ask--do you reserve birthday celebrations for a single day? Or are you like me and prefer to stretch them out as long as possible? ;)

  2. Hallo Lexi,
    I didn't know it was your birthday week, but since it's Friday, I'll remember, my aunt has her birthday on the same day. Usually I only celebrate the day of my birthday. How are you stretching it as long as possible?

    1. Lyra,

      The trick is to be loud about your birthday (none of this "aw, shucks, we don't need to do anything for my birthday" stuff) and then use it as an excuse to have a fun week. :)

      Thanks for coming by today!

  3. Happy Birthday wishes for Friday. Love the excerpt, thank you.


    1. Ingeborg,

      Thank you, and thanks for stopping by today! :)

  4. Happy upcoming birthday then! :) I usually only celebrate the one day.
    What are you planing for your birthday week?

    1. Gala,

      Thank you! I'm spending my week celebrating with a sale on my best selling book and prizes on facebook. (What better way to celebrate than to give people things?) I had dinner with my in-laws tonight, and the rest of the week is really busy but Friday my husband is taking me out of town for a couple days. The "birthday week" is a state of mind... :)

      Thanks for coming by!

  5. I really liked the excerpt and the story line. Happy birthday.

    1. MomJane,

      Thank you for the compliment and the birthday wishes. Thanks for stopping by today! :)

  6. This sounds really good.Thanks for sharing the excerpt.

    1. Thank you and thanks for stopping by today!

  7. Great excerpt! Well if you are celebrating the whole week, congratulations are in order! :)
    I usually celebrate on my birthday, but if the day is a weekday, then there is usually a bigger celebration with friends and family at the coming weekend.

    1. Ami,

      Thank you! :) I think it's great that you try to have a nice celebration with family and friends for your birthday. I just like an excuse to do little things for myself throughout the week. :)

      Thanks for stopping by!

  8. It's unlucky to gratulate before the actually birthday so I'll wait(hey rather safe thant sorry!) ^^;
    Hm, mostly it's one day celebration with my family and another day I celebrate with my friends and here we usually go out or trying something new. How do you intend to celebrate?


    1. Anas,

      I didn't know that, so I thank you because--hey, doesn't hurt to wait. :)
      I'm a total introvert, so we don't usually do a big party or anything. Tonight we went to my in-laws for dinner and on my birthday, my MIL is taking the kids overnight so my husband can take me out of town. A night away is the best kind of gift. :)

      Thanks for coming by today! :)

  9. Happy birthday! Nice excerpt.


    1. Thank you! Thanks for stopping by! :)

  10. I definitely think stretch them out as long as possible. Although at my age now, I prefer to just not think about it too much, lol.
    Happy early Birthday!

    1. That's what I'm talking about, Mary! ;) Thanks for stopping by!

  12. Hope you have a great birthday. I am enjoying your following your tour and finding some great new blogs, to me that is. I can't wait to read your book. It sounds like a great mixture of sex, romance and fun.
