Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Bare Naked Words and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


For the first time in her life, Ireland Mills is happy with her body. No more fad diets, no more hiding from every camera in the room, no more low self-esteem. She’d rather be alone than with someone who’ll only love her if she’s skinny.

Caleb Carpenter and Ben Weber are everything Ireland and the Kansas Chamber of Commerce dreamed of when conceptualizing the “Real Kansas” promotional campaign. They’re handsome, young, educated, and totally dedicated to their small prairie town.

When Ireland’s Prius gets stuck on a Kansas dirt road and a massive storm rips through town, she’s left stranded with nowhere to turn but to Caleb and Ben. These two hunky country boys are impossible to ignore, but could they ever be interested in her as well?

Caleb and Ben are more than interested…and they’re willing to share. After their first night together, they know this has to be more than a one-time thing. They need to make her theirs forever. But can they convince Ireland they love her, curves and all?
Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.

My Thoughts:

Ireland Mills is not having a good day. Caleb Carpenter may just be my next book boyfriend. Ben Weber has issues that a lot of other military men have.

What I didn’t like was how Ireland owns up to her image one moment and how self-conscious she feels the next. Then we see what she compares herself to and I wasn’t happy with her about that. Make no mistake, it’s not what the author wrote that I didn’t like but how the character feels about herself. That speaks volumes as to how good the author does her job. And by telling us the story in the first person, we know exactly what our main characters are thinking and feeling.

This story is really hot and raw with plenty of emotion. You may want to be careful where you’re reading this because you may get some questions you would prefer not to answer. Our author could have left her story centered around the main characters and that would have been fine. But she goes the extra mile by showing us the people that also happen to come into contact with them – both good and bad.

I’ve only read one other book by Ms. Simone and after getting to know a little bit about her writing style with this latest, I’m looking forward to reading more. You can tell that she lets her female character shine and that she’s created someone that a reader might be able to relate to. Happy endings are always nice but you also have to like the characters and Ireland, Caleb, and even Ben were a joy to watch as they come to care for each other. But the reader also has to have an open mind since this unit is made up of more than two people.

Meet the Author:

Sierra is a voracious reader of all things including the smuttiest smut, young adult, piles of non-fiction for research, and everything Bill Bryson (especially on audio). 

She loves writing the dirtiest things that she can think of, King Arthur, sparkling water, Tarot, coffee, leggings, and learning new words daily.

Her previous jobs have included firing ceramics, teaching living history lessons in a one-room schoolhouse in full, 1908-approved school marm attire, and working as a librarian for several years—not in that order

She lives in the Kansas City area with her hot cop husband, two children, and two giant dogs. (And two cats, but they're so naughty we don't talk about them.)

The social media she cares about the most are Spotify and (her very very NSFW) Tumblr. Following her in those places is a true love language, indeed.
