Seriously fun premise - book club reads erotic classics and then uses their favorite book for tips on seducing the men of their dreams. I may be mentally editing the author's writing, but I am also enjoying the stories. It's not a bad idea, really - although I may be reading the wrong books. I could break a slate over some guy's head, but first I have to find a slate. I could be at a bookstore buying overpriced books and let Ben Blake come show me how to do it cheaply - but if he didn't show up...more

Seduction By The Book is such a hot steamy read that by the time you turn the last page you'll be ready for a cold shower!

This is 4 stories in a story, each focusing on a particular member of the Red Tote Book Club, a group of women who read and discuss some of the best erotic fiction ever written. But the group leader has plans...She poses the idea that each member should pick their favorite erotic novel and then seduce the man of their dreams drawing inspiration from the book of their choosing...more
I went to the library to pick up book five of Stephanie Bond's "Body Movers" series, but it was checked out. So I picked up the only other book currently available by Ms. Bond, "Seduction By The Book", just to see if I'd like her other non-series stuff. The answer? Not so much. It sounds like a cute enough premise -- the single, lonely women of the Red Tote Book Club decide to use their favorite romance novel as more or less an instruction book for how to seduce the men they have crushes on. But...more

Ok. This was quite steamy! I will keep this review short because my parents are on Goodreads ;-)

I liked the idea of the Red Tote Book Club, where a group of women gater to discuss erotic fiction. They are all challenged by the leader to use the ideas in the books they read to go out and seduce a man. It is essential four short stories in one book. An easy, quick read. Will read more by Stephanie Bond in the future.

This was a good book about a book club who reads and discusse erotic books/novels and when the leader of the book club comes up with a daring idea for the members to find a book and use it to seduce the man they want and then report if the book helps or hurt it turns out to be a discovery for all involved the women get to find out things about themselves that they never imagined and it has alot of good ends as well would love to see this as a movie.

Nothing like a Stephanie Bond book for excellent writing, a creative premise, AND some serious steam. Seduction by the Book follows members of a book club as they go to the erotic classics to pull off their own seductions. Um, you probably don't want to give this as a Mother's Day gift--unless, of course, it's a gift to yourself.
I guess it shouldnt be a surprise since its a harlequin, but I was surprised at how romantic this book actually was. It was fun and sweet and has made me want to see what else Ms. Bond has written.
This is a collection of 4 stories about a women book club, i really enjoyed all of the stories and i could really relate to Page and her story...(except the part about being a dominatrix! lol.)
This book was hot and sexy. Don't read it in public unless you want people to see you blush.

But Stephanie, a voracious reader, was only interested in writing fiction–more specifically, romantic fiction.

Upon completing her master’s degree and with no formal training in writing (he...more
