Definitely A Quick Hot Read, But...

Once again Mrs. Vaughn turns up the sexual heat in another of her interracial romances. "The Reinvention of Chastity" is an enjoyable little page-turner. I just found it a little unbelievable. As much as I tried to roll with the flow of the romance, I just COULDN'T get pass the way Sebastian took advantage of Chastity's kindness. And let us not forget the AWFUL comments he made about her to his friend Jeremy. As a sistah, I would have found it difficult to get

I really enjoyed this story, but it is definitely not the up tight, prudish or faint of heart reader. The dialogue is graphic and the love scene are explicit, but the book comes with a warning so readers shouldn't be surprised.
The story starts out with Chastity overhearing a conversation her long time crush Sebastian has with his partner. Her feelings are hurt, but its a wake up call. With the help of her friend, Chastity receives a much needed makeover. She gets more than a new look. She also h
When Chastity Bryant overhears what her boss, Sebastion Rossi, really thinks of of her she is hurt beyond belief. For two years she has harbored a crush for him, always thinking that it was not obvious, but when he blatantly admits to using the knowledge of it to produce more work from her, she is furious.

Within the next few days, Chastity is convinced that revenge is the best medicine. All of the sudden she goes from dowdy mouse to sultry vixen, and Sebastian doesn't know what to think. When th

Chastity Bryant and Sebastian Rossi's story.

Chastity gets her revenge on Sebastian for the cruel remarks he makes about how attentive and devoted she is to him. She went to town on his ass! Along the way they fall for each other and Sebastian falls in a big way for Chastity. However, I think our girl took it a little too far and when he finds out how she played him its devastating!

Great read loved it!

I love this author and I remember reading this theme on fictionpress awhile back. I guess I picked it up, because I craved that kind of story and found that this book delivered. And it did. True, emotionally, everything just clicked really easily and things were forgiven very quickly. But the story is quite good and steamy.

Sebastian is great, slightly mean, that once, but he does make up for it. Chastity, I loved her as a tease. It was a fitting revenge.

I liked this book very much. Eve Vaughn describes her characters so well that it was incredibly hard to put down. I liked the fact that in the end Chastity got the one thing that she truly wanted.

I really, really, really liked this book! I liked Chastity and I grew to love Sebastian. I didn't know how the premise would work out without coming off as REALLY corny, but it worked. ***SPOILERS****

What I liked
I liked the cast of characters in the book. The two gay besties and the drop dead gorgeous bff. They were all developed, but could have used a bit more work.

I loved Sebastian's new interest in Chastity. I thought that the two main characters had a genuine chemistry and it really worked

This was a very good quick read. It was fun, sexy, and erotic. In a weird way it was inspirational, not that I would go to these extremes but I can see how someone would.

This was a fun and emotional read, I found myself laughing out loud at points and feeling proud of Chastity. A couple of times she got a "you go girl".

The story shows that if you put your mind to it you can do more than you may think. And at the same time you should be careful what you ask for because you may just get it.

I loved this book. Chastity was a young woman working as a paralegal for a law firm. Sebastian a handsome rich alpha was one of the partners. While a work one day Chastity over hears Sebastian laughing with his best friend and business partner Jeremy. What Chastity over hears leaves her angry. So the story begins. I am not going to give out anymore information about the story I recommend that you read the book to find out. Very enjoyable book.

I enjoyed "The Reinvention of Chastity." For me it was a quick read easily deserving of 5 stars.

How long do you carry a grudge for? Some people hold a grudge until they exact revenge upon the person who hurt them and others still hold on to the grudge even after. The thing about a grudge is that sometimes it ends up hurting you more than the other person. Chastity had to learn this the hard way.

I can definitely tell that my taste in books have changed since I originally read this two years ago. I don't normally re-read books nowadays because I have so many on my TBR pile to get to. There are just a few books that I would re-read and read word for word (Twilight Saga.)

Initially I gave this 5 stars but this second time reading it was more like 3 stars so I've adjusted my rating to 4 stars. I wasn't as engaged with the story. I've learned my lesson and will stick with my TBR pile.

I love this book but it's def not for everyone, especially the prudish.

I mean there's nothing here extremely shocking or appalling but it's def not pg13 and a little over rated R.

A short sexy, fun and erotic read.

I love Chastity. I can't stand Dallas and I hate Brenda.

Sebastian and Chastity made a Wonderful cat and mouse pair.

I'm def glad I made a good purchase. Definitely no buyers remorse here!

This is the typical fat girl gets a makeover and gets the hot guy book but man, I loved it. I'm sorry but this is one hot and steamy read. I enjoyed it because the MC and her boss are so different but they have a sexual tension that is believable and enjoyable to read about. The writing tends to get a bit repetitive but overall, I liked it.
I liked it. It was a light, easy read kind of story. A little like the 'Ugly Duckling' for grown-ups. I zipped through it. I liked the hero. Chastity wasn't annoying but her mother and the way Chastity allowed her mother to treat her and the easy way she accepted her apology I didn't buy. But other than that, it was good.

Well, I am not really sure how I feel about this story. It was a pretty interesting read. There were times when I felt like there was some kind of disconnect in the story or not a developed background but over all it was a fairly good story. There was some drama and friendships as well as sex and love. For a quick read it pretty well held its own.

Hmmm...i don't had no point really, but i did like the whole "used to be frumphy and had a huge crush, to super hot and seduce for revenge, but then see a different side of him and fall even more in love" thing that the book had going.

This had the potential to be a good story however the writing itself did nothing for me. There were one two many cliches that made me roll my eyes

Loved this book.. If there had been less cheese, over-the-top smutty/dirty talk, & less lagging in certain area's, I would've given it 5 stars.

I made it thru chapter 2. Shallow Bitches should be this books title. I was going to try and read up to chapter 3, but....I just couldn't.
A fun read, competently put together by an author who clearly knows what she's doing in the genre. Could have done with more development in some parts, but still a good read.

The best game of cat and mouse ever. I was so glad when they finally hooked up. Probably one of the best IR''s I've read in a long time... It had me going from beginning to end. Well done Ms. Vaughn!

As a child she was always getting into mischief, so when she lost her television privileges (which was often), writing was her outlet. Her stories have gotten quite a bit spicier since then!
