This one was by far my favorite of this series to date. I actually would have loved to have seen this story be even more fleshed out and longer. It had all the bones for being an excellent full-length book in my opinion. My heart broke for Sam and Natalie and all they have been through. I can't imagine losing a child at such a young age. The author did a fantastic job of capturing all the pain and regret these two had. I spent a good portion of this book with tears in my eyes. Another t

Sam and Natalie - farm life, losing their son, falling apart, meeting new peeps, partying, H goes bat-shit crazy - short story.

Not much naughty on this one. Didn't suspect this was a bit heavy actually. But suffice for mediocre read.
Nadine Bookaholic
Natalie and Sam have been slowly drifting apart after the death of the young son, loosing a child is a painful experience and when one parent puts up a wall and doesn't want to talk about it or think about it, well you can guess the wedge it would cause in a marriage. Please don't think that they don't love one another because they do and this story is about them finding their way back to the couple they once were and becoming a stronger and more loving couple.

When I read the tease of this book in Naughty Wishes I couldn’t wait to find out more about Natalie and Sam and what it would take for them to find their way back to each other and it was all kinds of gut wrenching and frustrating ~ and smexy as all get out ~ but so worth it in the end,

This one was all kinds of heartbreaking, as well as frustrating, because Natalie and Sam were so entrenched in their own inner conversations with themselves that it caused a huge rift in their rel

THIS WAS DELICIOUS! Every single thing that always put me on #TeamSarah is on these pages!

From the moment I read the first few paragraphs, I knew this story was going to make me feel. Once again, the author has taken a crossroads moment in a couple and turned it into a deliciously sexy interlude that will have your heart soaring! There’s no doubt about it, you will want more for sure. At least I did. But you won't need more :)

This short and spicy read packs a powerful emotional punch. Sam and Natalie's story will break your heart, drive you up the wall with frustration and move you with its sweetness. A story of love, loss, pain and drifting apart. I so wish this had been a full length novel because it was just that good and I would have loved getting so much deeper into these characters and their romance. This is my honest, voluntary review. ...more

Short story about a married couple who lost their baby 10 years ago and have drifted apart ever since. They finally realize that they just need to appreciate and confide in the other and their relationship should be on its way back to how it was before. This short story took place in pretty much the span of 5 hrs and so it does feel a little unrealistic to think that they would be able to sweep up 10 years of emotional distance in one night together, yet the HEA does make it seem like things wil ...more

I am enjoying the Naughty Shorts series by Sarah Castille. The shorts have been sexy stories, but the stories are also about couples looking to rediscover or rekindle something they have lost. So even if they are sexy and steamy, they are also sweet and engaging. In Naughty Secrets a husband fights to win his wife back.

Sam and Natalie are my favorite couple so far. They have been together a long time, but a tragedy has driven them apart and their marriage is crumbling. The love is still there,

*****5 stars*****

The story revolves around Natalie and Sam. Highschool sweathearts who got married. They survived a terrible tragedy and while coping with the loss they didn't realize that they were drifting farther and farther apart from each other.

Its a wonderful second chance love story of a married couple finding their way back to each other. Each page was filled with emotion and unexpressed feelings.

Nat and Sam's story tells us a very important lesson: Marriages are not perfect,

Natalie is having a difficult day. Not only does she have a dental problem, she's remembering the son she lost years ago. Not only did she lose her son, but she lost her husband in the process. Sam has let himself get consumed with work and they've both let the spark die out in their marriage.

Of course, Natalie sees Dr. Steadman, the gorgeous, sexy and kinky dentist in town. When he reveals to Natalie that they share something in common, she agrees to a drink at the local pub. Sam isn't all tha

I fell in love with the two previous Naughty Shorts stories and couldn't wait to get started on Naughty Secrets. Sarah Castille is a fantastic storyteller and knows how to give readers a smoking hot, sexy story. Unfortunately, Sam and Natalie's story fell short for me.

It was no secret that their relationship was strained, but Natalie came off as being a bit of a bitch and Sam was so dang naive. I really wanted to like them both because I love the whole premise behind these stories and the good

I’ve read the first two books in this series and I’ve enjoyed them all so far. This little town of Revival, where the novellas take place, seems like your typical small town where everyone knows everyone else. So far all three books have been semi second chance romances, where the couple’s marriage has basically been saved by the swoon worthy dentist, Aiden, who happens to be into the BDSM lifestyle. Another common character appears to be Alexis, who seems to be besties with all the female MCs i ...more

This was my first Sarah Castille book. I haven't read the first two books in this naughty series, but it seems like their more stand alone's anyway. I didn't come across anything that would steer me away from this being my starting point.

There's a sadness to both Sam and Natalie. We know what that is, but they have let that sadness infiltrate their life and relationship. This story highlights their struggles, with a little background to understand their plight and how they fix things, if possib

Sam and Natalie have been married for years, but they have never been farther apart. After losing their son, they both dealt with the loss in different ways. She believed that he didn't appreciate, or see, her anymore. When she goes to the dentist, she realizes that she has something in common with him, they both list a child. While there, she starts thinking that, even though she loves Sam, they might not be able to fix things.I

My heart hurt so bad for these two. I Found myself in more then one part with tears in my eyes. I honestly loved Natalie and Sam. I loved that Sam was so protective of Natalie.

This was Book #3 in the Naughty Shorts series. I have read the first two books. This was not one of my favorite in the series.

I loved the storyline with Natalie and Sam mourning the lose of their son, Ethan, but as time as passed, they drift apart. It has been ten years and Natalie can not take being alone anymore. One day changed everything for them. Natalie tells Aiden that she lost a son and he shares somethings with her. They go to the local bar to talk and have a drink. Sam realized what

Naughty Secrets is amazing. It may be a quick sexy read but their is a lot of heart in it too. Marriage is never easy especially after trying to recover from a loss of a child. Things between Natalie and Sam haven't been right since. You can tell they are both lost and you hope that the good Dr. Aiden, the resident dentist, can help. I love how everything went down in this book. You hope that the love between Natalie and Sam is strong enough to work through. And boy will it make you hot and both ...more

The more I read Sarah Castille's Naughty Short stories, the more I fall for her characters. Naughty Secrets gives you what you need in a Novel, but in 14 chapters. You get the drama where a failing relationship seems it is at the end. You get the tears for the loss Sam and Natalie go through physically and mentally. You still get the Hot Dentist - Dr. Aiden that adds a little bit of spice and heat to jump any relationship.

The sexiness factor will WOW you! I am hooked on these stories. Nat and S

The third novella in this series, but it can be read as a standalone. I haven’t read the previous books and didn’t miss a thing. This was my first book by this author, but it won’t be my last. i really enjoy her style of writing and I love it when an author is able to make a novella feel like a big book.

A lot happens in the space of a few hours. Sam and Natalie have been drifting apart after the death of their son. Then one day everything changes, will they make it?

I love this series. These characters are very relatable and there is always that special dentist uniting these couples whether he realizes it or not. This was a story about how love and romance in a marriage sometimes takes a backseat to daily responsibilities and struggles. The spark gets hidden but the fire is still burning below. Natalie and Sam had it all until the unthinkable happens and their lives are changed. This story dealt with real life heartache and what happens when two people unkn ...more

Love these shorts. I especially love them because they are understandable and relate-able. It's nice to read a book where the character's are in their late 30's and not right out of high school or college. It's also nice to read about those little struggles that marriages have and that they ARE fixable, no matter how difficult or far away the fix seems. Looking forward to more shorts, possibly a short for Aiden. *I voluntarily read an advanced copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review. ...more

****ARC Received for Honest Review****

This is my favorite Naughty Short so far. I loved the angst of Natalie and Sam’s story and I love the fire that seeing Natalie flirting with the sexy dentist lit under Sam’s ass. It was much needed, this couple needed something drastic to get them to come back together, to find their center again, or be forever broken.

Thank you Sarah for another sexy and steamy read, but with a twist of angst, that gave it what I was looking for.-Review by C

Dr steadman returns in another cameo in this sexy short story. This time it’s in the wake of struggling couple Natalie and Sam. After the loss of their child they have become disconnected and it appears only one thing is going to bring them back together again. Sams jealous of Nat being hit on by another guy.

Another great short from this author. Not my favourite of the shorts I’ve read so far but still a good storyline and characters. It moved quickly and it was a great relaxed

This short was okay for me. Natalie and Sam suffered a loss and have been basically suffering in silence since they don’t talk about it. Natalie goes to the new hot dentist in town and they end up talking about their loss. Natalie realizes she’s missed doing fun things with her husband and her new friend makes Sam wake up and show his wife the appreciation she’s been missing.

I loved this short yet emotional story about Sam and Natalie. My heart ached for how much this couple had drifted apart following the death of their son. And it was so HOT when Sam got his alpha back when he felt threatened by another man stealing his Natalie. I love how Sarah Castille manages to pack oodles of FEELS in such a short story. My favourite so far on this series.
