’Tis the season for double seduction.

The only item on Jana Colton’s Christmas list this year is Kevin Monahan. Preferably naked in her bed. The delicious, hunky chef has been resisting her forever, but she’s pulling out all the sexy stops this holiday. Especially since his acceptance of an out-of-state job threatens to nix her quest to rock his boxers off.

Jana has alway

Holy shoot balls! Can Jodi Redford write the sexy or can Jodi Redford write the sexy??? Seriously, guys, whenever the clothes start dropping, the heat index skyrockets! Also, that warning? Entirely accurate!

I really enjoyed watching Nick and Jana unravel Kevin's fears. Nick fights dirty but it's the delicious kind of dirty that ends up with everyone sweaty and happy at the end. Jana usually gets to end a couple of times, if you know what I mean. You really can't think badly of a Nick, though. He

First off, this book is a sequel to The Naughty List which I did not realize until I started reading. It is not necessary to read the first book to enjoy Checking it Twice, but it was so much fun I have already ordered the first one.

Jana and Kevin have know each other for five years and have been in love/lust for most of that time. Due to emotional issues in Kevin's past, he has resisted his feelings for her although Jana has done her best to seduce him. He knows that he is incapable of giving J

DNF at 70 percent.

I hated this book. It came as such surprise because I loved The Naughty List.

What I loved about the Naughty List: Three awesome people falling in love and it was clear they were meant to be together. They struggled with their feelings but everything felt like they wanted it.

What I hated about this one: Nick Pappas was beyond hot and Kevin was an asshole who completely shut everyone out. As far as I got it just felt like they cheated on each other. Each love story developed ind

Got an ARC copy from Jody and loved it. Did not realize that it does not come out until November. One of my top favs of her books.
This book has Jana, (which she is from The Naughy List-Brams sister) and she has the hots for Kevin, who is the Head Chef at her brothers restaurant. She is constantly trying to get him into bed. He likes her, but something is holding him back. He also has a secret and his scared to start something with Jana. His secret is that he has taken another job in Las Vegas,

I have to say I’m a big fan of how Jodi Redford does ménage. This latest book Checking it Twice is another beauty!!! I am in love with all three of these characters. Some peeps may think looking at the titles you are getting a short novella, but this is a full novel of yummy goodness!!!

Jana Colton has decided she has waited long enough for her best friend to make his move, and she is going to have him as her Christmas present if she has

Checking it Twice is the follow up to Ms. Redford’s book The Naughty List. In this book, Jana Colton is trying with all her might to get Kevin Monahan to pay attention to her. The trouble is he is attracted to her, but because of what he perceives as his flaws, he refuses to act upon the desire that is within him. He is taking the cowards way out and leaving altogether and he is even not man enough to tell Jana to her face.

Add an old friend into the mix that Jana is also attracted to and which

I always love Jodi's writing style, her books are always fun and super sexy. This book is not short on either of these.

This is the second in this series, but this is a total stand alone book. It was nice to see Lacey, Bram and Ryan from The Naughty List and catch up with them, but again it is not necessary to read the first book...though you Really should :)

The heroine of this story is Jana (who is Bram's sister) she is smart, fun, flirty, successful business owner and sexy. She has been trying

Review:

Kevin, poor baby. He has had a hard life of judgment. And as commonly happens, if you hear it enough, you start to believe it. Well Kevin believes with every fiber of his being that his sexual proclivities are born of evil and that indulging in them with someone he cares about would be punishment toward that person. Consequently, he walked away from a budding relationship several ye

Warning: Reading this book could make you self combust. Checking It Twice by Jodi Redford is hot, hot, hot. I am giving it a 3.5 star rating because the story is good and the writing isn’t bad. It doesn’t have a deep meaning or even a really deep plot line, but the characters are very likeable and it’s a fun read. I am giving it a heat rating of 5 because OH MY GOD! Jodi can write some smut, let me tell you.

Jana Colton is in love with 2 men. The first man has been a friend for years and has mad

This book was just as good as The Naughty List! It had the steamy factor, with an added bonus of another sexual interest beside a threesome, but I'm not sharing what it is! This one was also heavy with emotional issues, but renewed my faith that love can overcome most any hardship that a lover has faced in their past. This book is set about a year after The Naughty List, so we can see glimpses of what has happened in that threesome. It was a good book to help to start lifting me out of my doldru ...more

I met this author at a conference, and decided to check out this hot book. I'm so glad I did!
A hot story, with heartbreaking issues for the characters to face, this erotic romance burned my fingers from the sizzle on the pages, while touching my heart with its tender moments.
I can't wait to read more from this author!

Thank you for sending me this book.

Having never read Jodi Redford before I found this book very easy to keep up with, I wasn't even aware it was a sequel.
I also found it extremely racy and spicy. Completely meant for the romantic readers out there...
A quick but very interesting read!

I thought this was a fun story. Jana has had the hots for Kevin for five years. They've been good friends, but as time has gone by, she's really fallen hard for him, and she's trying to push the boundaries of their friendship. Hard. But Kevin doesn't do relationships. He doesn't even really do one-night-stands. He's torturing himself for what he's been told is a perversion, but one he can't quite keep himself from. He's also torturing himself for what he feels like are past relationship failures ...more

This book is the sequel of the Naughty List. It's Jana Colton's story.

She is in love (and in lust) with Kevin, the pastry chef from her brother's restaurant but his resistance toward her advances are really annoying the shit out of her (and myself!) so she decides to take the bull but its horns and literally show Kevin how good together they can be before he makes the hugest mistake of his life and leave town for good. Meanwhile, Kevin's best friend, Nick, arrives in town and knowing all of Kevi

Jodi Redford does it again! At times romantic and emotional, at others delightfully witty, Ms. Redford delivers another worthwhile read for this holiday season. Despite her ability to write smoking hot love scenes, she gives depth to her characters and allows the reader to emotionally bond with them without being cheesy. I really enjoyed watching Nick and Jana unravel Kevin's fears. Nick fights dirty but it's the delicious kind of dirty that ends up with everyone sweaty and happy at the end. Jan ...more

Good things about this book: Heroes were interesting and appealing, writing was pretty good, the plot seemed promising.

Bad things: the horny heroine was awful (basically sexually harassing her male best friend), she fell in love with another guy over the phone, and the big "coincidence" was utterly ridiculous--the phone dude just happened to be the long-lost best friend of the best buddy dude, and they just happened to enjoy sharing female partners. Oh sure. That could totally happen.

What a coin

Was certainly steamy, and had some really good things to say about not judging others' sexuality, but was also cheesy and cliched, and Jana became a wimp and a pushover through the story, rather than the saucy, self-confident woman she was at the beginning. also, not enough Christmas for me:P

Okay, I must admit I thought this novel was pretty amazing. It had the whole BDSM type factor, including a crap load of emotions and emotional drama guaranteed to have you gasping for more. I wished the ending was a bit more than what it was but overall the novel was great.

*Not quite 4 Stars, but more than 3.*

This book was certainly hot! And I liked the characters too. But Kevin's issues were a huge shadow over things and he held on to them for so long! Probably better suited for a longer book, but this was still a nice holiday read.

At the ripe age of seven, I penned my first epic, complete with stick figure illustrations. Sadly, my drawing skills haven't improved much, but my love of creating fantasy worlds is still going strong.
Yep, I still love writing about fairies, ghosts, and other supernatural creatures, only my stories pack a little more heat these days.

I currently reside in Michigan with my husband and overgrown lapd
