Book Description

14 April 2005 Warner Forever

To Xandra Farrel, men are only good for procreation and pleasure - and sometimes they even need help with that. As proprietor of erotic aid manufacturer Wild Women, Inc., she's ready to launch her best product just as soon as she tests it out. Her subject: Beau Hollister, once the sexiest, most popular bad boy in high school, and the man responsible for the worst sexual experience of Xandra's life. If Xandra can have one mind-blowing night with Beau, the commercial success of her product is a sure

thing . . .

When Beau started his home renovation company, Hire-a-Hunk, being Xandra's boy toy was not what he had in mind, especially since he blew it way back when. Then Xandra turns up the heat and turns on the seduction. As wills clash and hearts collide, can unexpected love prove that being naughty is sometimes the nicest way a girl can have her Beau . . . and keep him too?

Kimberley Raye has yet again created a story which I just couldn't put down.

Here we meet the second Farrel sister who we briefly met in the previous book in the series. Kiss Me Once, Kiss Me Twice Xandra is as open about her sexuality as her elder sister Skye and she is just as funny.

I read this book before the first in the trilogy and found that I did not really have to have read the first to enjoy this (although admittedly there were some spoilers about the first book).

I loved how easy it was to get caught up in the story and found this book to be as humorous as all over books by the author. This is an absolute must read.

Sometimes Naughty, Sometimes Nice by Kimberley Raye

October 11, 2004

What do you get when you have a woman who owns a company named "Wild Woman Inc", a manufacturer of erotic toys? You get SOMETIMES NAUGHTY, SOMETIMES NICE by Kimberly Raye, the second in a trilogy of books featuring three sisters raised by a woman who calls herself a "womanist". Jacqueline Farrel is mom, and she's a famous sexologist with her own television show. She's the guru of the womanist movement, women who are aware of their femininity but are not dependent on men. She doesn't believe in marriage, and in fact, she is not married to the sisters' father, Donovan Martin. Both parents are busy with their own careers and don't live in the same house most of the year. In this second novel, the main focus is on Xandra Farrel.

Xandra has just lost her live-in boyfriend Mark, who had fit perfectly into the role of the "holy commitment trinity". They had great sex, respected each other, and had common interests. According to her mother, these were the perfect relationship traits, and once you had them, you could not go wrong. Obviously this didn't apply to Xandra and Mark, since he decided they were no longer a perfect fit.

The book is filled with humorous scenes, such as the opening chapter, in which Xandra is upset that she's found a gray pubic hair. She vents her frustrations on Albert, her chief engineer and close confidante, and he tries to reassure her that her life is not over.

So, she decides that her new goal in life is to have babies. However, her mother had always taught them that there is no need for marriage. Time is running out, as her body is reaching that stage in life where she may no longer have viable eggs. Mark has spoiled it all by walking out on her, so now she has to rush to find a man that will contribute his sperm.

Enter Beau Hollister, the owner of "Hunks for Hire", who is going to renovate Xandra's home. The bad news is Beau is the first boy she tried to have sex with back in high school. The key word is "tried", since Beau was over and done with his part before she had a chance to blink. The event was so embarrassing that neither Beau nor Xandra want to rehash it.

Xandra in the mean time invents a new sex paraphernalia that she thinks is going to be the biggest toy in the industry. But she needs to test it out on a few people. After trying it out with her King Kong vibrator (she always tests out all new products) she gets it in her mind that Beau would be the perfect candidate. If this new contraption can make sex with Beau exhilarating, she has it made. Her next goal - seduce Beau into wanting to have sex with her. It's not an easy task.

This reviewer had mixed feelings for SOMETIMES NAUGHTY, SOMETIMES NICE. The overall story was original and fun. There was plenty of humor to make one chuckle. The problem had to do with the characters. Too many were introduced at once in the beginning of the book. Granted, this was the second in a trilogy of books; however, the reader should not have to read the first book to enjoy the second. This reviewer feels that a good romance introduces minor characters slowly, and does not make too many of these characters as important as the two main characters, the male and female leads. The character of Jacqueline Farrel is made to be as important as Xandra. It was frustrating to switch gears from Xandra, who was looking for a love interest, to her mother's personal life and her television show. This entire segment of the novel could have been left out.

Another problem with the characters was that their personalities felt forced. It felt as if they had been created mainly to fit the story line, and not the other way around. Although the characters in some way did evolve and grow, they felt too rigid and structured in the beginning. By the end of the story, the main male and female characters had resolved their differences, as in any romance, but the jump from point A to point B did not feel natural.

Despite these negative points, this reviewer gives three stars for SOMETIMES NAUGHTY, SOMETIMES NICE. It is still a good beach read and a nice way to pass the time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good second book. 27 Oct 2004
By Jennifer Banker - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thought this book was funny and hot and sexy. I think the story line is great and love to see how it gets flipped on the men. Usually men have that thinking. I thought it was a bit cheesy at times, but this book had me laughing out loud. I liked it and cant wait for the third book in the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Even Mr, Five Minutes can't redeem this one 30 Oct 2006
By Tracy Vest - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Youngest Farrel sibling Xandra is the daughter who most closely follows her mother's Holy Commitment Trinity. The owner of a boutique manufacturer of erotic merchandise geared toward women has just been dumped by Mark, her partner of eight years. What's a woman to do? Design an accoutrement guaranteed to give a woman the ultimate orgasm, of course. Now if she could just find someone to test the product on... like perhaps the man responsible for the worst five sexual minutes of her life, Beau Hollister.

Beau is the owner of a construction company that is experiencing growing pains. Aptly titled "Hire a Hunk," the guys are getting older and some are getting rounder. He wants to break out of hunk territory and concentrate on more serious home restorations, and what better place to start than Xandra Farrel's dilapidated Victorian. Beau is still smarting from the humiliation of their first coupling in high school and when he overhears Xandra's business partner asking if she's tested the new product on "Mr. Five Minutes," Beau decides he won't be her test dummy. Neither counts on unresolved feelings coming back to the surface. Could Xandra be the second daughter to reject Mama Jacqueline's womanist doctrine?

The second in the Farrel sister trilogy, Xandra's is the hardest story to enjoy, and not just because of her incessant whining. It takes a pretty long time for the action to start and by the time it does, I found myself wishing I was reading something else. Compared to the other two in the series, this one is just... boring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it in Bed! 13 Oct 2004
By thewordlover - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is very funny, very hot and a terrifically good time. It isn't hard to understand why Cosmo excerpted this novel with so many they could choose from. It is the perfect read for every woman who enjoys reading contemporary romances about smart, independent women who know what they want and go after it. My favorite part? That love strikes in unlikely ways and it isn't always having common interests that really matters-- even though this is a light funny read, there is also insight into real love and real men.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes Naughty, Sometimes Nice 29 Feb 2008
By MNix - Published on

Xandra Farrel owns Wild Woman, Inc., a manufacturer of sex toys for women. She is a "hands on" entrepreneur and not only helps to design products but she tests them as well. Her newest product is a female condom, designed to give a woman the ultimate orgasm. With a prototype to test, Xandra needs a man to complete the final product

Beau Hollister was responsible for Xandra's first sexual experience and it was indeed a memorable event, fast and unfulfilling. Xandra sees Beau as a perfect test subject, for if she can achieve the ultimate orgasm with him her product will be a winner! But convincing Beau to have sex is not going to be easy. Beau believes Xandra will interfere with his concentration and destroy his chance to move his company into the next phase, just like she destroyed his concentration in high school which caused him to lose a college scholarship.

The more Beau resists, the harder Xandra tries to lure him into her bed. As the battle between the two intensifies, so does the passion. Can Beau and Xandra overcome their past to find love in their future?

After reading Kiss Me Once, Kiss Me Twice, I had to read the next installment in the Farrel Sister's Trilogy, Sometimes Naughty, Sometimes Nice. I was not disappointed! I loved Xandra's drive to succeed and her battle with weight and candy. And how could I not love her chosen career? Beau's status as a hunk is unquestioned and his ability to resist temptation made him even more desirable.

Once again, Ms. Raye has written a humor-filled, sensual love story. With a returning cast of interesting characters and a few fun additions, I look forward to learning more about the Farrel women and their friends. My favorite element in this trilogy is the addition of the secondary love stories. I recommend Sometimes Naughty, Sometimes Nice for a fun and romantic read!
