From Boston to the small town Matthews on the outskirts of Charlotte . From selling stocks and bonds and managing the investments of powerful millionaires and corporate businessmen to inheriting her late sister's business and selling sexy lingerie and BDSM accessories. That's quite a change for our heroine Madison and requires some adjustments. Add in the fact that Madison fed a few kinky fantasies over the course of time and being in the presence of her new

I have discovered that Joey W. Hill has a very beautiful way of writing. Her words flow at a subdued elegance. She is meticulous at explaining the world of BDSM, IMO.

The Lingerie Shop is the beginnings of an intricate series- it starts with a sister, Madison, coming to terms with her inheritance from her sister, Alice. A sister that knew her better than she was willing to know herself.

A very, very promising beginning. I generally dislike serial novella because I suck at waiting for each book to come out but this is Joey Hill, so I made an exception.

Naughty Bits is a story about Madison just lost her sister and with her loss comes Naughty Bits. A Naughty Bits is a lingerie shop. Madison has had a strained relationship with her sister but after her death, she was surprised that her sister Alice gave Naughty Bits to her. But that's not the only item that Alice g

I don't think Joey could write a bad book even if she tried!

Logan and Madison's journey will certainly be an emotional one ... can't wait for the rest of the novellas.

Full review at the end of part IV because it's impossible to review each part and do it justice.

A closet submissive with a Type A personality inherits a sex store. How is this a good thing? Madison loses her beloved sister, Alice, to a sickness. As part of Alice's will, Madison inherits "Naughty Bits" a lingerie store which also sells sex toys. It also caters to the tasty forbidden fruit - BDSM.

Madison is a disturbed character. She's annoying to me because she doesn't understand to concept of living life. She goes through the motions and just wants to reach the end goal. Does she even kno
When Madison's sister dies and she inherits the Naughty Bits lingerie shop she sees it as the perfect opportunity to get away from her boring job and start a new life for herself. She didn't realise how hard it would be to turn her hand to selling sex toys though and it looks like she's going to need some help learning how to make her customers comfortable. She has been burying her submissive side for so long that she has no idea who she really is any more and the incredibly sexy Dom from the sh ...more

3,5 stars.

A very good start of what I believe will be another amazing love story by one of my favorite romance authors. Reading blurbs of Ms. Hill's books always leaves me wondering how exactly the story will go, how the main characters will get together, and most importantly how they will fall in love, but what my imagination comes up with never comes close to the wonderfully written tales Ms. Hill is an expert in. Madison and Logan's is no exception. The beginning of it, at least, but I'm qui

**3.5 stars**

A very promising start to a serial and, if you can believe it, my first book by Joey Hill (*horrified gasps*).

If you aren't burnt out by all the BDSM books on the market and you are in the mood for a serial, I would give this book a go. It is a decently hot read thus far, but this novella is still just a tease for the main event, which is probably coming a couple of books later in the series. Our sub-in-the-closet has yet to get down and dirty with her kinky self, yet what I've see

This is my first book by this author and I draw two conclusions...why did I wait so long to read her works and when will I read another book by her? Yes, I enjoyed it.

When I listened to the audio version of this book, I said to myself...this author gets the sub/master dynamic. I totally identified with the female lead; her need for submission, her cravings, yet she did not let go of her personality in the process. Being submissive does not mean being a doormat. Quite the contrary and I liked how

Short story....part 1 of a series. Due to the short length, I did have some trouble connecting fully with the characters and story. But it's well written erotica, and I would absolutely read the next installment.

This is only book one in the series, but I get the feeling that I am going to like it. It has a romantic element, so it's getting at least 2 stars for that alone. I miss romance. True, honest, emotional romance.

The lead female character I hope will mellow a little as this carries on. She's a little high strung at the moment. But Logan, the leading male, I've got my hopes up. He's so far go that whole, firm, but kind thing going on and I LOVE that in my male characters.

This is the first in the series and the meeting of Madison and Logan. First off if you are not into erotica then pass up this story. Second this story is very short. It only has about 80 pages and their story continues into the next novella “Naughty Bits #2 The Training Session”.

This story is about Madison realizing what she wants and her deceased sister giving her the chance for that to come true. We didn’t get too involved with Logan yet but so far he

OK, maybe I'm a fan of Joey W Hill, and she can do no wrong (etc, etc, etc), but I'm beginning to dislike 'part' stories, not just b/c they leave one (slightly) high and dry, but that it costs me MONEY to buy all the parts (when combined the price would be considerably lower!!) And, IMHO I expect this series to come out in a print book (at a lower price) not long after the final chapter.

Leaving alone the contentious bits, I LOVE Logan. He's strong, determined, quite kind (and in a way, lovable),

Ms. Hill has done it again, her new series The Lingerie shop is brilliant. Naughty Bits Part 1 is a look into knowing yourself and going with your desires. Ms. Hill's ability to draw yourself out from yourself and into the story is uncanny. Madison, the submissive girl in this delightful tail of BDSM, changes you. You become Madison, you feel what Madison feels, you desire the same desire as Madison. Logan's dominate pull, sucks you into self dreams. The book is all the way around worth reading. ...more

Even though I'm not a fan of the protagionists, I respect how Ms. Hill chose to characterize her. She isn't likable and I think that is part of her "awakening" process. A sexually repressed woman inherits a sex shop and finds a sexy kinky dom waiting in the wings to help her open up.

This is the best BDSM themed romance "book" I've read. That's not saying too much, considering many, many of these books are crummy. (I'm looking at you, 50 SHADES OF GREY). That being said it doesn't feel like much of a book, since it is a novella, and there's not much of a plot. It's as if we only get the "exposition" and "inciting action" portions of the plot, so you have to read the subsequent novellas to get a complete story. But there is enough good stuff to make you want to keep reading, ...more

The scoop on Naughty Bits

I loved reading about how the store (that you will experience from the buyer's point of view in other Joey books) come into it's current owners hands...
I love the back story and how it is so key to the current situation. And I love the characters and can't wait for more!!!

Cliffhanger! This is NOT a complete story.

Good writing, interesting story, but this is only one of several that would complete the story, at least 4 required to finish it seems, though I'm not absolutely sure...I would have rated it a 4 except for the cliffhanger .

I've read this book...
But when I read it it was a whole book.
Not a bunch of little slices of book.
Splitting the book up into parts to sell as a series of short short stories?
Sounds like a scam.

I received this ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The gist: Madison’s sister died after an unknown illness and left Madison her lingerie store. The neighboring store is owned by Logan. Logan is a Dominant and he’s going to end up training Madison as a submissive.

Okay, so here’s the thing: this story really didn’t make a whole lot of sense to me and it might have something to do with my lack of understanding of the characters.
