Book Tour for Wanton by M. Malone and Nana Malone (REVIEW)

Roommates become oh so much more in this decadently delightful romance full of fun and flirtiness.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of Wanton by M. Malone and Nana Malone, along with getting my impressions of it, then add this third installment in this sizzling series to your bookshelf too!

After getting dumped, the last thing Trevor Hamilton wants is to take on his advisor’s niece as a new roommate. For starters she’s hot. Like sexy librarian hot. But he needs his advisor’s recommendation for a job after he graduates, so he’s going to keep his dirty little fantasies to himself… and stay far away from his sexy little roomie.
Natalie Washington is done with men. After her last dating disaster, she can’t afford to get derailed again. So when her aunt claims to have found her the perfect roommate, she’s willing to give it a shot. He’s one of her aunt’s best students, so how distracting could he be?
Then Trevor opens the door to their apartment, muscled, shirtless, tattooed and so… arrogant. How can one guy be such a dick? He’s bossy, and annoying...and scorching hot. Too bad he knows it.
As the battle lines get drawn, they’re each determined to ignore, or annoy, the other. Who will end up on top?




Readers looking for a little afternoon delight will find just that with this fun and flirty read of roommates who quickly become oh so much more.  It’s a quick read full of charm as two people hurt by love in the past find themselves drawn to each other despite all the odds against them in a tale that will keep you glued to the pages.

Trevor’s a sexy and studious college student who thought all was well between him and his girlfriend before receiving a goodbye note on his refrigerator.  Not only is he left brokenhearted by her leaving, he’s also now desperate to find a new roommate. Fate has great timing though as his favorite professor is looking for a place for her niece to move into and it’s the first step in a journey full of changes for someone who’s always been focused on his studies to the exclusion of living life to the fullest. It’s a journey that catches him off guard and has him feeling things he’s never felt before and it leads to a few misunderstandings along the way.  Through it all Trevor’s an appealing hero, charming and sexy.  He’s had many casual relationships in the past but once he realizes how intense his feelings are for Natalie he’s fully committed to her.  Though he doesn’t always feel worthy of her, is told by his professor that he’s not a long-term guy, he quickly realizes he can’t stay away from her and makes his devotion clear. Trevor has a protective nature too, as seen by his concern for his sister, and it was often on display when he was around Natalie in scenes that endeared him to me.

Natalie’s looking to start over after being betrayed by love, cheated on by someone she thought was committed only to her.  Starting over at a new school has her sharing an apartment with the drool-worthy Trevor who quickly becomes a temptation she can no longer ignore.  They may start out as friends with him watching over her, as she tries to get out of the shell her sadness put her in, but their interactions soon take on an erotic feel that led to numerous scorching interactions. Natalie’s a likable heroine, studious like Trevor, and generous in her caregiving nature.  In looks she’s a librarian, but being around Trevor brings out a sex kittenish side that added spark to their pairing and like a moth to a flame he gave in to her wholeheartedly.

This was a quick read, a bit lacking in detail though as readers never got deep insight into either of these characters.  Readers get to see them in the here and now, with not much concern for the past and very little for the future.  This was an entertaining main couple with witty banter, both playful and sensual, and they had me cheering for them every step of the way as they dealt with Natalie jumping to an unwarranted conclusion along with melodramatic family intervention.  Their attraction was instant and led to lots of scorching interludes that will make readers see library bookshelves in a whole new light.  The story was too quickly wrapped up though, too easily dealt with, and in a way it gave an unfinished feel to the book.  Despite these small flaws this was still a delightful read and I look forward to reading about the burgeoning romance between Trevor’s sister and his friend hinted at throughout this book.

My rating for this is a B.

*I got this book from the author for review in exchange for my honest opinion.


WICKED (Book #1)

WILD (Book #2)


NYT & USA Today bestselling author M. Malone lives in the Washington, DC metro area with her husband and their two sons. She holds a master’s degree in Business from a prestigious college that would no doubt be scandalized by how she’s using her expensive education.
Independently published, she has sold more than 1/2 million ebooks in her two series, THE ALEXANDERS and BLUE-COLLAR BILLIONAIRES. Since starting her indie journey in 2011 with the runaway bestselling novella “Teasing Trent,” her work has appeared on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists more than a dozen times.
She’s now a full-time writer and spends 99.8% of her time in her pajamas.


USA Today bestselling author Nana Malone‘s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense novel she “borrowed” from her cousin.
It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick-butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination constantly channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.
While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as brazen and kick-butt as she thinks she is.
