EYE CANDY by Tawna Fenske

About EYE CANDY: Sugar and Spice book 1 (January 2023): I see them staring. Blame the scar that’s carved from my chest to face, or my reputation as a beast. Keeping to myself keeps others from knowing how I got this way. Then she moves in next door.

My sexy neighbor seems to revel in me watching her most intimate moments. The kicker? She wants to watch me. What’s the harm in staging sinful shows across our shared fence line? No words. No contact. Just how I want it.

But weeks of teasing hits a boiling point when we collide at the store and find our chemistry’s even hotter in person. The first words Lyla says to me? An indecent proposal no man could refuse.

EYE CANDY is a short, scorching hot standalone m/f erotic romance with a little m/f/m/m surprise. If you like voyeurism, exhibitionism, and menage, this one’s for you. The story contains no cheating and an HEA is guaranteed!

About TOUGH COOKIE: Sugar and Spice book 2 (February 2023): She’s feisty. Fierce. And trapped in the elevator of a building I own. So I climb down the shaft determined to distract her. My tools aren’t found on a toolbelt, but I manage to cool Skye’s rage as we heat up this tiny box dangling two stories off the ground.

The hot young med student has good reasons to be pissed, and better ones for dodging relationships. Why should she trust a stranger 14 years older to know what she needs? But the sexy spitfire gets under my skin, and it’s clear Skye’s hungry for my touch. Time to prove not all men are jerks. Especially one with a few wicked tricks up his sleeve.

TOUGH COOKIE is a short, scorching hot standalone m/f erotic romance with a little m/f/m/f/f surprise. If you like age gap, enemies-to-lovers, and menage, this one’s for you. The story contains no cheating and an HEA is guaranteed!

About HONEY DO: Sugar and Spice book 3 (March 2023): I’ve wanted my best friend forever. We’ve vowed not to cross the line, but Nina leaves no doubt she craves my touch. I’ve reined us both in, keeping a distance as Nina gets off on satisfying her lovers’ hottest fantasies. But what about hers?

It’s a question I pose one wild night drenched in too much champagne. She makes a list, and now I’m hellbent on helping her fill each one of her deliciously dirty fantasies. Even the ones she’s afraid to admit.

HONEY DO is a short, scorching hot standalone m/f erotic romance with a little m/f/m/m surprise. If you like friends-to-lovers and menage, this one’s for you. This story contains no cheating and an HEA is guaranteed!

Praise for the author’s previous work:


“Laugh out loud funny, morally grey assassins with a heart of gold and small-town love!” – Nikki’s Book Nook

“Killer Instincts was action-packed and kept me turning the pages. Dante and Jen’s red-hot chemistry was sweet and addicting.” – Late Night Luna Reads

“This is the best book she’s ever written.” – The Rogue Book Reviews


“Killer Moves is a story of family and relationships, secrets and lies, greed and power. The premise is intriguing and entertaining; the romance is seductive and captivating; the characters are dynamic and energetic.” – The Reading Cafe

“Matteo and Renee are both mysterious in their own way so it takes some time to unravel the mystery but there are plenty of laughs and a bit of heat while we work our way to it. They both have tragic pasts but there’s a ton of silliness to balance it. Their story’s an emotional rollercoaster but so much fun to read. And Matteo with a toddler might be one of my favorite things ever.” – Daisy Knox

“I continue with my shameless obsession with Tawna Fenske’s enticing and amusing Assassins. They are the coolest and sexiest bunch of quirky do-gooding killers on the planet. I suggest they should keep recruiting to their ranks to ensure that this series can continue on into perpetuity as each installment has been such a delight to read.” – Books and Bindings

“Overall, I was completely entertained and enjoyed Killer Moves even more than book one. If you like your romance light with cinnamon roll men, a dash of danger, second change romance, and some banter tied up with a neat bow at the end, check out Killer Moves and the Assassins in Love series.” – Read and Wander

“I loved watching Matteo and Renee reconnect and learn to trust each other again–and watching Matteo get to know his son? Even better!…I really enjoyed the suspense part of the story as well—the last quarter of the book had me on the edge of my seat, anxiously reading as fast as I could to get them all safely out of the danger they were in. Ms. Fenske did a great job of wrapping things up nicely, and the HEA was absolutely fabulous.” – Becky on Books…and Quilts

“I just loved this romance. In-between all the action, Matteo, AJ & Renee’s insta-family unit had me swooning.” – Ree Cee’s Books

“I am more and more convinced that (Fenske’s) hilarious humor is the best way to brighten your day. Come on, we all need to snort-laugh in public every once in a while, am I right? Because that was my main reaction during my read of this book, I just couldn’t stop myself. Sarcastic banter, hilarious one-liners, witty dialogue….the writing style is absolutely phenomenal in this one. You want proof? I finished this in a day.” – Bookworm8619


“Going by the title and cover shot you would expect this book to be corny erotica – wrong. It was actually a cleverly amusing and sweet romance with thoughtful and sensitive storylines and some extra fun and spicy bits as a bonus. I adored these endearing and smirk-worthy characters. 5 stars.” – Books and Bindings

“Both the external dialogue and internal thoughts were grand fun and downright titillating. The getting-to-know-you scenes where Austin shared many of his flubs only made him more likeable. And Bree is just a paragon of efficiency in the scenes where she’s dealing with the various journalists touring the property. The secondary characters, many of whom have their stories in this series, are also incredibly likable. And I LOVED the literary references (Virginia Woof). And when Bree’s skeleton finally sees the light, I loved the way Austin went about helping her and not giving up on them. When I think of RomComs, this story will immediately come to mind. It’s fun, it’s sexy, it’s witty. Sergeant Sexy Pants by Tawna Fenske is one of those stories that will have you grinning from start to finish. 5 stars.” – The Romance Reviews

“This was a great, fun read. I loved the spark and steam between Bree and Austin. I loved that Austin didn’t give up on her no matter how hard Bree tried to push him away. I always enjoy reading Tawna’s books. She does an excellent job of mixing humor, romance, sexy time and bringing a tear to my eye. I can’t wait to read the next installment in this series.” – Books-n-Kisses

“Sergeant Sexypants was a fun, sweet, fantastic read and I can’t wait to see the next book in the series. The best part of this is that I love everyone mentioned and want to see more of their lives. Bree’s got a lot of brothers and so I look forward to seeing all of them get their HEA. 4.5 stars.” – Night Owl Reviews, TOP PICK


“Hottie Lumberjack is sweet and sexy, endearing and entertaining. Tawna Fenske developed the characters, romance, and mystery with banter, heat, and heart. Ms. Fenske created a great cast of characters in their families. Fans of Piper Rayne and Melissa Foster will enjoy Hottie Lumberjack.” – Harlequin Junkie

“There’s something quite endearing about author Tawna Fenske’s Ponderosa Resort series and that is especially true with her latest release Hottie Lumberjack. Don’t get me wrong, these books are filled with Fenske’s whip smart wit and sexy times, but there’s also an underlying sweetness about them that make them so easy to read….If you enjoy romances that center on big, loving, sometimes dysfunctional families, romances that have heart, and some great comic relief, then look no further. Pick up Hottie Lumberjack and then sit back with your favorite beverage and prepare to enjoy every moment of this book.” – Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

“I always enjoy Tawna Fenske’s clever wit and breezy writing style, but I revel in her delightfully titillating, smirk-worthy, and bawdy sense of humor. The premise was entertaining and intriguing, the characters were lovably quirky and endearing, and the writing was well balanced with levity, sizzling sensuality, and engaging storylines.” – Books and Bindings

“I LOVED both Mark’s and Chelsea’s internal dialogues but especially Mark’s when Libby was around. I couldn’t stop laughing. Oh and that poker game was laugh out loud funny. The rabbit was fabulous. The secondary characters, if you are following this series, make appearances in this book and they’re just as enjoyable and help to round out the story. (Of note, the stories are all standalones, so you can read them out of order as I did.) So many little details that truly made this a romantic comedy and just so much fun to read. I’d be remiss if I didn’t make mention of the romantic bits, which were HOT! However, it can’t all be fun and games. There’s a bit of a mystery and suspense going on for Chelsea, and since Mark IS a Bracelyn, there’re secrets that eventually come to light. 5 stars.” – The Romance Reviews

“I highly recommend you guys to check out this gem as soon as possible.” – BookWorm8619

A very happy reader who can’t wait to be amused by Ms. Fenske once again.” – Beth Cranford, Panda and Boodle Blog, 5 Stars

“A soil scientist and computer tech star in one of the funniest, sexiest, sweetest romances. The List has already earned a spot on my best of 2017 list—and it’s only January! I’m not exaggerating—this book is actual LOL funny. And sexy, sooooo sexy.” – Emily, Polished Bookworm, 4.5 Stars

“This is a fun, entertaining book. You fall in love with the characters and don’t want to leave their adventures.” – Books Are Love, 4 Stars

“When there’s a Fucket List involved you know you’re in for a fun and kinky time. The List certainly didn’t lack sexy times, which went from kinky hot to sweet and steamy and I loved every second of every scene. I had a fantastic time reading it and I’ll be waiting for more from Ms. Fenske.” – Penny, Edgy Reviews, 4 Stars

“This has to be the first book by Tawna Fenske that I have ever read, and I have really fallen in love with both her writing and her charisma.

“A hot and sweet story from one of my favorite romantic comedy authors! This one has plenty of laughs, and plenty of heat...If you’re looking for laughs and steam, this one will do the trick.” – Maria Rose, Straight Shootin’ Book Reviews, 4 Stars


“I really enjoyed The Test. It was hot and sexy, and super sweet. For such a badass, Dax was also extremely lovable, and Lisa was a perfect counterpart. Although I tend not to like the fussy, uptight heroine, Lisa was sweeter than anything else; and seeing her loosen up and grab a hold of life with Dax was wonderful.” – Harlequin Junkie, 4.5 stars

“This was an incredibly cute book, hot and sexy as well. Lisa wasn’t as buttoned-up as I think the author wanted us to believe she was but she was still pretty straight-laced. That didn’t stop her from easily falling in with Dax’s plans for her. I loved that they got along so well from day one and I loved that they both felt the connection between them from that time as well. Dax was a good guy but thought Lisa was too good for him. I was so happy that she stomped on that idea so that he was clear that he definitely was good enough.” – Book Binge

“The Test was a blend of smoldering sexuality, learning to look beyond first impressions, and exploring boundaries. I loved every minute of this book….From the crisp dialog, the sexy times (hello, alley sex), the easy to like characters; The Test was a perfect romance.” – Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews, 5 stars

“I smirked and gasped my way through this delightfully naughty and amusingly clever and steamy tale of opposites. The premise was interesting, the storylines were entertaining, the characters were appealing and enticing, and the writing was witty and engaging.” – Books and Bindings, 5 stars

“Tawna Fenske delivers a love story that pushes against all of our stereotypical thoughts of different classes and shows us the human emotions buried deep underneath their persona. I highly recommend The Test for a romance that is flirty, thrumming with desire, and hits our hearts going full speed! Tawna kept me tied up in their heat and my heart twisting right along with theirs. I cannot wait to discover more of her fictional worlds and see if she still strikes such a deep chord in my heart as she did with Lisa and Dax’s story.” – Rochelle’s Reviews

“As always Ms. Fenske’s stories leave me laughing and wanting more. The Test is a great story of two people that couldn’t be more different, yet they work together perfectly! I loved watching Dax take Lisa to places she never could have dreamed of. I really can’t wait to see what is next in this series. It is sure to be sweet, sassy and smexy!” – Books n Kisses

“I enjoyed both Lisa and Dax. Lisa was intent on not only breaking out of her shell but changing her preconceived notions about herself and her future. She might have come off as a snob but that was so not who she really was. I totally loved witnessing her personal growth….With lots of scorching hot sextivities, funny banter, nosy sisters and the most hilarious dirty talk, The Test was a great follow up to The List and I can’t wait to see what comes next.” – Edgy Reviews

“The Test is one of those books I feel like could have gone either way—a hot mess, or a hot, messy, sexy, simmering love story.…The Test tested the limits of my ability to smile and swoon and get really flippin’ frustrated at characters that I just wanted to see believe in themselves and their choices. In a good way, FYI. Needless to say, now I’m done, my cheeks are hurting from the grin I sported through the very last page, and my heart is light. As it should be after reading something so perfectly messy, sexy and real.” – Panda & Boodle
