Title: Wanting It All
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 über-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.

This is the second novel in the Naked Men series and I gotta say it was so not what I was expecting-in the best of ways. Sadly, I pre-judged book 2 on how I felt about book 1. As a book addict I know better but I did it nonetheless. Happily, though, Wanting It All blew my expectations out of the water!
The reason or prejudgment is I was afraid of a repeat of the first book. These men although sexy, committed to their jobs and their brotherhood, and funny have proved to come across as way to cocky and arrogant and proud of their player ways. Its ok to treat a woman a certain way as long as they leave with a smile on their face. They give no chance at love or a future with someone. I understand a few who blame their parents but for all five men to practically feed off each other’s conquest does not sit well with me. Luckily for me, this fact was toned down and I was able to enjoy the book that much more!
Knox was going to be a favorite just because his awesome nerdy-ness. Yes, like Madison brains are a huge turn on! Then reading his story about his business takeovers and how he carelessly says no leftovers when it came to women including his sex maps, I lost love for him. Madison is the one who I absolutely adored in this book. Gah, her tenacity, brashness, and go-getter attitude makes you want to befriend her and root for her. She gave Knox a run for his money. I totally loved how she ran circles around him, getting him all dizzy and totally making him fall in love with her without even a second thought.
Despite these men being proud players with no apologies or intention of changing, it has been a real delight seeing two of the men, Griff and Knox, get knocked down a few pegs and put in their place. Madison was THE perfect match for Knox because she had a plan that she went for no matter what everyone said about it. She had an explanation for every argument. Back to the Naked Men I cannot wait to read the rest of these men meet their matches!
