It was on the suggestion of Christian's therapist that he spend more time outdoors to enjoy the fresh air and get a little exercise in the process. His family and friends were constantly harping on him to do the same.

“Live a little and don't be afraid to take chances,” they said.

“Life's a journey best enjoyed with a healthy dose of adrenaline,” others said.

Christian is stunned when he sees through his binoculars a naked guy jerking off on the small beach in the forest.. “Spend more time in the nature” said his therapist... well the naked nature was quite something. And it was even getting better when Derek discover he is been watched by a gorgeous man. His motto is being one with nature... and that means naked...

I found myself just as embarrassed as Christian... a constant naked guy around and a constant boner... and he doesn’t even know him.

Ann lister is freaking killing me with this salacious series! They are like taking shots! Quick and easy, but always leave you wanting more.
I loved Climbing The Longhorn.
(Just the name cracks me up!)
....but I desperately NEEDED MORE. Damnit!! When I read the last page, I internally screamed nooooooo! I didn't want it to end. You know a story is going to be good when it involves, a naked sexy guy hiking in the woods...
Derek and Christian were HOT, sweet and soooo much fun. Besides being sexy as

It was a good hiking for Christian, not everyone finding a cute naked guy and 'interested' when they're doing their hiking.
A very short entertaining, steamy story. Nice cute short read before heading to bed, huh? Wink.

❤A short story for the second of the illict series. A great start with a bit of voyeurism sexy scene. Humour and sarcasm from the characters.
Christian is about to take a journey into love via a bush path. Derek has lots to show Christian. lol A fantastic novella, l loved it...

And they’re off!

This book kicks into high from the star and never relents - and I freaking loved it. I had to cover my mouth to stifle the giggles that couldn’t stop. What an epic short read!

Another fast paced sexy hot quick read from Ann Lister. Christian is taking friends advice and getting out more. He thought hiking would help clear his mind and be great exercise. Derek, a gorgeous naked guy takes his cardio to whole new levels. This is a quick read that makes you smile and gives you the goody, good parts. It's fun, the characters are charming and it makes you wish for waterfalls. This is Book #2 but it is a standalone. BUT Book #1 Model Student was also

Naked hiking is not something I could really pull off, if I’m being completely honest my hubby couldn’t either. He doesn’t like them swinging around like clackers. His words not mine.

High five Derek though for letting it all hang out. It made for a interesting and hot read that’s for sure. Christian may have found it awkward to begin with, but he sharp come around. LITERALLY!!

As always this Author knows how to tell a great story. Long or short it’s always a pleasure to read.

Climbing The Longhorn is the second book in Ann Lister's Illicit Heat series, but can be read as a stand alone.

Christian gets the idea to go hiking from his therapist and the trek leads to a life changing discovery - a very naked and very tempting Derek. Lost in nature, Derek and Christian explore the Longhorn and each other in this erotic read. Short and sexy this read tantalizes and keeps you reading about Christian's naughty adventures.

So hot! Chris got lost going for a hike and finds Derek swimming and enjoying nature naked. After an unfortunate fall, Derek finds Chris and helps him out. It was short, but really awesome. These are two guys I’d love to find out more about. I liked how even though it was a short story with no real relationship extending plot, I felt that these guys were working towards an HFN and had potential for an HEA.

Christian is working on himself and takes other's recommendations to go on a hike. He is thinking it'll give him exercise and a chance to clear his mind. Instead, he gets a naked hiker that pulls him out of his comfort zone. This is a short but so hot read and I really enjoyed everything in it. I will say that I hike all the time and would like to know where this one is at so I can try to find me a naked hiker :) ...more

Climbing the Longhorn is another hot story by Ann Lister. The guys are fun together, and the setting is fabulous. Does it get better than meeting a guy when their naked? It certainly leads to some fun.

This Illicit Heat series by Ann is smoking hot. If you like short erotic reads, do not miss out on this series.

Another cute story. This one I felt some more depth and connection to the characters but I don’t want to give the story away. I still don’t quite get why everyone was telling Christian to get out and do stuff but it brought him to Derek and Derek shows him how to really let go.

I received an ARC of this book and am giving an honest review.

Christian and Derek had an unusual, hot, and for one of them, embarrassing first meeting. While I worried about bugs and sunburn, this story was a lot of fun. I loved that Christian took a chance with Derek, even while he worried Derek might be a serial killer. And I loved seeing Derek convince Christian to try new things. I'm enjoying this series of short, sexy stories. ...more

A fast paced, quick, hot, and sexy read in this wonderful series. Christian and Derek have a quite an unusual introduction while Christian is out hiking and gets lost. What follows is an adventurous and sexy hike to a waterfall! It's a fun and hot story. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. ...more

Hot and sweet!

Ann Lister is an amazingly talented Author. I adore all her work. This short was so fun, hot, and sweet. Because who doesn't love a naked guy hiking through the woods. 😊😘

Derek is funny, straight forward and naked. Christian is hiking, clothed and more on the conservative side. That shortly changes after meeting Derek and the two openly walk, hike, and relax naked for all of mother nature.

I enjoyed this quick and erotic story.

Sexy Novella

This was a great short and sexy read! This novella is about an hour long read that has exhibitionism, waterfalls, and naked hiking. It was a perfect book for an hour of downtime!

Great underlying theme

While this is most definitely an erotic short story there was an underlying theme that I appreciated. Learning how to let go and just enjoy yourself.
