In the follow-up to Risking It All, hailed by Lauren Layne as “the perfect escapist read,” the heartthrobs of the Naked Men blog and podcast get a little too real about friendship, love, and sex. For one wealthy bachelor, the trouble starts when all three collide. . . .

After narrowly surviving a bus crash in high school with his best friends, science geek Knox Davis resolved to become so successful that he could have anything and everything he wants. Now he’s ├╝ber-wealthy, a huge business success, and a notorious ladies’ man. Knox refuses to limit himself to one woman, but when his latest conquest—a blond beauty from the Alaskan bush—challenges his superficial ways, Knox begins to see the world through her eyes, and finds he likes what he sees.

A nurturer at heart, Madison Abbott wants to put down roots. She left Alaska to meet Mr. Right—and to track down Logan, the half-brother she’s never met. Instead, she finds Knox. Although the sexy-as-sin bachelor may not seem like marriage material, Madison’s starting to think that Knox is The One. But Knox refuses to settle down, especially once he learns that Madison is his best friend’s little sister. Now it’s up to her to convince Knox that she’s everything he really wants.

Wanting It All, who wouldn’t, but what would you be willing to give up to find your perfect match?

Madison Abbott is in heading to Washington DC for a new job and to reunite with a big brother she never knew she had. She and her mother have struggled but made a good life in Alaska, now she is about to see the world. She is an honest to God, librarian and thrilled about her new appointment in the national library. Oh, did I mention, she’s planning on finding a husband.

Knox Davis was the geek who used his smarts to become a billionaire.

Knox lives life fast and hard. Emotionally scarred by a near death experience in the Alps as a kid, Knox’s goal was not to die a virgin…well, he’s screwed his way through all that states and then some.

I'm sure you can guess where this is heading. Knox meets Madison and boy do they get along...

When Knox and Madison meet the “one-night stand” is out of this world and he finds himself wanting a little more. He’s all on board and really enjoying his time with Madison until he discovers that Madison is his best friend’s illegitimate little sister. Quite frankly, Madison was his match intellectually as well as calling him on his party privilege ways until he discovers her relationship with his BFF.

This story was flat out fun. Wicked funny banter and friendships that have endured…well a life threatening crisis and so much more, then add in some romance and it makes for some fantastic reading.

I received this ARC copy of Wanting It All: A Naked Men Novel from Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication August 9, 2016.
