Blog rating: D

Dawg has four half-sisters that come to him via Timothy Cranston, the man he and his cousins love to hate, five years ago. His gem of a father put the girls’ mother through hell, leaving them to fend for themselves and after his death, no money was left for them to survive on. They’re moments from being forced to live on the street with Timothy steps in and after verifying the family connection, he takes them to Dawg knowing he’ll never turn
I will start by saying that the blurbs on the author's site, publisher's site, Amazon, and Goodreads are wrong. The setting and hero's name is right, everything else including the heroine's name, background, and plot are incorrect.

Here's the real story.

Dawg Mackay has four teenage half-sisters he never knew about. Timothy Cranston shows up to break the news, with the sisters and their mother in tow. Family is everything to the Mackays and Dawg steps up to take care of them. This is in the prolog

I was one of those fans who LOVED the Nauti Boys series! I ate it up! All of the dominant and protective males in backwoods Kentucky.... YUMMY! However, I would have to call Lora Leigh's attempt to add on to that by creating the Nauti Girls series with yet another government conspiracy is a serious flop!!!

First of all, it is blatantly obvious in the beginning by dumping 4 new sisters onto Dawg that this is a pathetic way of insuring a full series... lovely. Nothing more exciting than a lazy seri
I really wanted to like this...but I just couldn't finish it.


It was giving me a headache. I had the same kinda problem with the rest of the Nauti series, something about it didn't seem to 'flow' as other suspense romance novels I've read which really frustrated me.

I should probably mention I read most of them while being stuck at home sick, so maybe I should add a star or something for that, but I give myself better credit for that. A good read shouldn't involve so much thinking of "

Returning to the world of alpha overprotective former military men and their women, Nauti Temptress is a great read. This is a 3.5 star for me. I enjoyed every little twist and turn in this book.

There were a few sad times as Eve, the oldest of Dawg's half sisters finally finds her mate. At 24 and a virgin, she's been waiting a long time. Unfortunately her man who is also alpha male is in deep with law enforcement and those who are traitors. How does it all work out? Kind of messed up.

A good enough book but nothing to write home about. It was definitely better than the first couple of books in the series. Although, at times the scenes felt silly and overly dramatic. I almost felt like I was watching a bad B movie.

Paranormal Haven
The day Dawg Mackay’s four young sisters and their young mother whom he’d never heard suddenly are brought to him for help, he and his cousins, Natches and Rowdy, could not resist. They always took care of their family.

When his eldest sister, Eve, now twenty-four falls for Brogan Campbell, Dawg makes her promise not to get involved with him, because he was a traitor and a thief. Eve knew this wasn’t true and so does Dawg, but he doesn’t want Brogan to hurt her.

Of course, she breaks her promise a

First in the Nauti Girls erotic romance series; it's an offshoot from Leigh's Nauti Boys series and based in Somerset, Kentucky. The couple focus is on Eve Mackay and Brogan Campbell.

My Take
I've been so looking forward to reading this story, assuming it would be as nauti and suspenseful to read as her Nauti Boys series.

The characters are wonderful, as always, and I love the whole B&B scenario. But the story itself is so contrived and the reasons Leigh provides as to why Homeland Security wa

Timothy Cranston, five years ago, shows up with 4 sisters and their mother to the Mackay cousins. Dawg never knew his father had another family. He would of never thought that his sister’s mother is even younger than Dawg.

First in a new series by Lora Leigh involving in some ways my favorite Nauti boys? I'm in! The Nauti series was one of the first romantic suspense stories I ever read so it really holds a special place in my heart. They are all alpha males with lots of attitude, dominance, confidence and guns on occasion. I was very excited about this series because I thought we would be reading about their daughters. Which is not the case. Don't ask me why I thought th
No me ha gustado ese final para nada. De repente han aparecido los malos pero no se había podido deducir que eran ellos ni por asomo porque no habían sido nombrados antes, con lo que el misterio ha sido un poco triste. Que los moteros fueran polis no me ha convencido tal y como actuaron con Eve en el bar, y esa petición a Drawg de la mano de su hermana tampoco la he entendido. Uno de los más flojos aunque todo el principio ha sido realmente bueno.
Nauti Temptress just outright confused me. I swear I'm not always this dense but I don't know what the plot or conflict was besides from Brogan and Eve having sex and being uber angsty. It wasn't bad sex or anything but nothing else made sense to me and the book seemed to really fly by. Then Dawg (his name makes me scrunch up my face every single time) made me more confused. So he knew about Brogan but then he..... And why did he ask her to do that???? And why... I don't know but I'm just one bi ...more

I can't be the only one who's like, 'Oh, half-sisters, how convenient.' There's nothing really new here, just erotica built around a flimsy plot framework. You could pretty much make a Lora Leigh checklist and tick off boxes as you read.

Hero in the military or government agency? Check.
Hero has either similarly aged male blood relatives or coworkers? Check.
Said hero is dominating in and out of bed? Check.
Heroine and hero fall for each other at first glance? Check.

What a FANTASTIC book!
When I saw the title I was expecting something else about the "girls" in this book, NEVER crossed my mind the plot twist that was going to be involved but I just LOVED!

I seriously recommend this author, she's quickly becoming one of my fave right there on my TOP 5
I was so excited to see the nauti boy series continue into the Nauti girls. I at first thought it was going to be the Nauti boy's kids grown, still I liked how it was set up. However the book fell kinda flat for me. I didn't rate it lower because there was scenes I really liked, and I got to see some of the Nauti boys again. However I found myself wishing the book was just a reunion story with more of the Nauti boys. Because the rest of the story hardly grabbed my attention. The plot line seemed ...more

I just couldn't finish it! I got to page 200 and it just wasn't going anywhere. I know this may sound petty, but the model on the front cover didn't even represent how the hero was described in the book! This is just an example of how this book seemed to be slapped together with no real follow through. I can honestly say I tried, but I just couldn't make myself finish it.
Well, where to begin??? Maybe with the fact I am being a little generous with 3 stars.. should really be 2 1/2 at most!
This convoluted story talks itself in circles without really telling you much and when it does get to a little bit of the meatier action (out of the bedroom) in the story it's very quick and glossed over. I know it's an erotic novel but still, you can have a descent well written story not just sex...the ingredients were there just not utilised very well.

This book was a huge disappointment. It felt like more like a political platform for Ms.Leigh's position on pro choice. While I stand behind anyone's right to air their viewpoint, on anything, I do not want to read a political rant while reading erotica. So to you Ms. Leigh, what the hell are you about?
I really enjoyed this book and getting back into the "Nauti" world. The characters were interesting, the story was good and the sex was hot!

This is the first book of the new Nauti Girls series.
DHS agent Cranston is constantly pulling the the Mackay cousins (Natches, Rowdy and Dawg from the Nauti series) in DHS operations in Somerset, KY. When the cousins get a call meet the agent, they are do it with suspicion and hesitancy. This meeting isn't about a DHS operation but to drop off to the four sisters Dawg didn't know he had and who have no where else to go. But family is important and Dawg and his cousins will take care of the teen
There's nothing more fun than observing the Mackays torturing another possible family member, especially when he's dating one of their own. Poor Brogan. The man is so tough and scrumptious and yet, he didn't see the trouble coming when he set his sights on Eve. Not only does he have to deal with her ability to take him to his knees, he has to put up with her relatives trying to keep him away from her.

Lora Leigh pens erotic romance at its addictive best, building the love and affection right alon

I have to agree with other readers who were let down by this book. I usually enjoy Lora Leigh's book but this one just pissed me off. For something that is the start of a series called the Nauti Girls, the women in this book, especially the lead, Eve, barely get a chance to register. I've enjoyed other books featuring dominant heroes but this just came off as extremely misogynistic. I'll read other Lora Leigh books but I'm done with her Nauti series.

The whole story came off as very convoluted. I

Don’t you hate it when you expect to read a good story and at the end realize that it wasn’t? That’s how I feel about Nauti Temptress by Lora Leigh. I had high hopes about this this book and new series by this NY Times bestselling author because she has written really good stories in the past. What I got was a mixed feeling about the story and I’ll try to tell you in this review.

I regret to say this, but this book has come out as a little disappointing to me. For it being a start of a spin-off series for The Nauti Boys series, I have expected much much more. Don’t get me wrong, there are parts of the book that are just all the Lora Leigh characteristics that make her such an awesome author, with her interloping erotic romance and criminal history, but the Nauti Temptress book has left me feeling as if someth
I was leery in picking up this one for a couple of reasons. I thought the premise of 4 suddenly discovered sisters to be a little far fetched, the other is that some of my GR friends rated it really low. So I went into this one with super low expectations, surprisingly I liked it.

I really liked the prologue. I loved learning how the sisters came into the McKay clan and the boys' reactions. In fact through out the book my favorite parts were when the new sisters were interacting with the Nauti bo
I waited sooo impatiently for this book to come out. I couldn't wait for a lil more of my wonderful alpha males Dawg, Rowdy and Natches. I was even looking forward to the lil Leprechaun. And yes they were their.

What I got was Eve and Brogan. Eve...Smart, Loyal, and a strength that awes. Brogan...Alpha male, strong enough to stand up to my Nauti Boys. The story I get and understand. With each book we will get a lil more of the conspiracy. A lil more of what is going on. I like that, it keeps me w
3.5-4 . Lora Leigh has always been one of my absolute favorite authors. I have devoured every book she has written, with the Nauti Series probably being my favorite. This said, I was ecstatic when I discovered the spin off and release of Nauti Temptress.

This book picks up a few years after the final book (Nauti Deceptions) in the Nauti Series ended. Dawg has found out his father had brutally raped a woman, actually a few years younger than himself, named Mercedes. Mercedes had given birth to fou
