Librarian and aspiring novelist
Calliope Howard has just won an all-expenses paid trip to a
beautiful Caribbean resort - a clothing optional resort.
For Calli, the experience is a bit nerve-wracking until she
decides to take a trip to the resort’s gym and meets hunky
trainer and fellow writer Leo Thatcher. With that sharp
mind and gorgeous bod, Leo’s every woman’s fantasy, and to
Calli’s amazement, he’s as attracted to her as she to him.
Even as Calli contemplates having a “Sexploration” with Leo,
she has to keep reminding herself that what’s between she
and Leo can never last. Or can it?
Break out the towels and turn up the
fan, because Ciana Stone has written a story that is sure to
make you sweat! Working up a Sweat is a
sensual, sweet, and utterly enchanting read.
Calli is a heroine you have to love.
She’s smart, kind, and though pretty, is nothing out of the
ordinary and has a real woman’s insecurities about her looks
when faced with a stunningly gorgeous man. Leo isn’t
exactly what you’d expect from a buff, sexy hero. Beneath
the ripped muscles there’s hidden vulnerability, and I loved
seeing the layers of his character being peeled back as the
story went on. He and Calli matched each other in every
way, which is one of the reasons Working up a Sweat
was such a delight to read.
Working up a Sweat is the final book in the
fantastic Sexplorations series, but it stands on its own.
In fact, Working up a Sweat was the first book
I read of the series, and I loved it so much I immediately
raced out to read the previous five. While each book
centers around a romance, at its heart, the Sexplorations
series is also about the friendship between the six
heroines. I fell for Fenny, Dee, Dini, Stella, and Eden
every bit as much as I did for Calli, and the genuine
feelings of support and friendship between these women is
what sets this series apart from others. This book wrapped
up the series perfectly. A warm, sexy, satisfying read,
Working up a Sweat was pure pleasure to read.
