He’ll teach her how to bring a man to his knees…

Dr. Ellie Swan has a plan: open her practice in tiny Bluelick, Kentucky, so she can keep an eye on her diabetic father, and make hometown golden-boy Roger Reynolds fall in love with her. But Ellie has a problem. Roger seeks a skilled, sexually adventurous partner, and bookish Ellie doesn’t qualify.

Tyler Longfoot only cares about three things: shaking his bad boy image, qualifying for the loan his company needs to rehab a piece of Bluelick’s history, and convincing Ellie to keep quiet about the “incident” that lands him on her doorstep at two a.m. with a bullet in his behind.

The adorable Dr. Swan drives a mean bargain, though. If sex-on-a-stick Tyler will teach Ellie how to bring a man to his knees, she’ll forget about the bullet. Armed with The Wild Woman’s Guide to Sex and Tyler’s lessons, Ellie is confident she can become what Roger needs…if she doesn’t fall for Tyler first.


"I can't even explain how fun this book was to read!" - Crystal Fulcher Vine Voice.

"Holy Torpedoes! I knew this book would by sexy, but I didn't know it would be "SEX-SAY!" Like hot. Really hot. Amazingly HOT!" - Alleycat

"Completely love this book. Funny, sexy and captivating." - Alves 

if you are ready to fall in love with a small town romance that is layered with heat, passion, charm, and eccentric characters then I suggest you give this book a try." - Michelle Tan,

I really enjoyed this book, it didn't take me long to kind of see how the story would pan out but even so I knew as soon as I started reading it I wasn't going to be able to put it down." - Katie Matthews, Goodreads

"What I love about the novel is that it is a mixture of sweet, sassy, and funny." - Connie, Amazon reviewer

"I was feeling wiped out from the books I've been reading lately and was desperately in need of something light to read. This hit the spot. It was uncomplicated, cute, a bit funny here and there and had some sexy scenes plus was well written on top of it all. It was just what I needed to relax my mind...." - Keri, Goodreads

"A fun, sexy, naughtily sweet and thoroughly enjoyable quick read." - Christina, Goodreads

"Holy crap on a cracker. Know why I love Samanthe's books so much? Her characters are so real. They have just enough angst to cause conflict, but it's never over the top. There's never needless drama that stems from a lack of communicating. You don't spend the whole book wanting to strangle the characters for being so blind. The chemistry she builds between them is tangible, and the sex scenes are seriously hot." - Jenn Hype, Goodreads, Author

"Loved it from start to finish! Beck has a wonderful writing style. Her hero was yummy, her heroine relatable, and they both sprung to life from the pages. Sexy and satisfying romance, can't wait to read more by this author." - Amelia Strydom, Goodreads

"When I finished it, I immediately went and bought the next in the series! I would recommend this to anyone wanting a light, steamy and humorous read!" - Trea, Goodreads

Dr Ellie Swann is back in her hometown of Bluelick, Kentucky. Once considered a plain-looking, studious dork when younger, she's filled out her curves and with corrective eye surgery she's ditched the thick glasses. When she overhears a conversation that Roger Reynolds, the local golde ...more

5 Fabulous Stars!! Amazing debut book! Fun, fun, fun!!

Ellie Swann (I think her last name was so appropriate) finally has a shot at snagging the man of her dreams, Roger Reynolds. She over hears his ex-fiancée, Melody Merritt, claim that Roger’s need for kinkier sex is what broke up their engagement ...more

By Duchess Nicole April 07, 2013

This is a book that makes me remember why I started reading romance. There aren't any big surprises or huge moments, no sad tears or heartbreak... just a sweet, predictable romance, witty dialogue, hot sex and a genuinely likeable couple.

After a ten year absence, nerdy, dorky "Sparky" Ellie Swan mov ...more

By Christina ~ Brunette Reader February 23, 2016

Outlandish premise involving the lessons in seduction (and more), but the writing was very good, the humour worked, all the characters were well-drawn, the small town scenario was spot-on, the heroine was likeable and the hero was a dreamboat.

A fun, sexy, naughtily sweet and thoroughly enjoyable qui ...more

Samanthe Beck's debut novel is perfect for a fun, steamy read!

You have small town livin' with all its quirkiness, a bad boy hero that is lovable, sexy as sin, and drives a Harley; a heroine that kept me in stitches and a cast of secondary characters that fit perfectly and added their own delicious ...more

Our hero Tyler has dark hair, green eyes all rolled into bad boy persona but so adorably sweet when it comes to our heroine Ellie. I can eat that man up. He is GORGEOUS. *sigh*

★★★★½ Good Gravy Beans, I loved this one. I laughed and giggled - yes giggled - throughout.

What a great debut novel by Ms Beck. Really enjoyed it. Good storyline, great humour, strong main characters. Dr Sparky wanted to up her "hotness" ante to try and get the town good guy and end up with the 2.4 children and the white picket fence. She ended up asking Tyler, the town's "bad" boy to tut ...more

This was a totally sweet, sexy, fun read. I just adore Tyler. What an absolute sweetheart. And Ellie was adorable in a completely A-type personalty way. I know this plot line has been done before (though its not nearly as well used as the dominating billionaire theme) so there are no points for orig ...more

A Bomb-diggity great debut! I fell for Tyler “Footlong” Longfoot, the sexy bad boy with a heart of gold, the moment he arrived on the page. He now stands tall among my favorite book boyfriends. And Doctor Ellie “Sparky” Swan was frustratingly endearing and lovable. To ...more

Sweet, fun, and enduring read, I loved the characters and the storyline. My only complaint is that there was no epilogue, with an epilogue this would have been a 5 star read for me. ...more

By Gina August 09, 2013

This was just what I needed after a very intense read, something light and cute. This story had enough to keep my interest and make me smile at times, but not enough that left me compelled to stay up to 3 am to finish. Just a nice sweet story that gave me the HEA I love, and a chuckle every now and ...more

Sometimes you just get the perfect book at the perfect time after a whole pile of not-so-perfect books. And. Well. This one was it for me.

I really loved nearly everything about it. I was enamored with Tyler from the beginning. He had this...idek. This charisma. He was, maybe, the perfect he ...more

Fun and sexy! Recommended for a laugh! Given this is Beck's début novel, I see a great future ahead. I don't feel like writing a long review, so here's the skinny:

For making me laugh a LOT, esp. in the first half, 5 stars
For a hero I could respect and totally swoon over, 5 stars

By Jaime March 18, 2013

I find myself struggling with rating romance books it seems lately. Usually they all have the same formula and so they sometimes tend to run together. When I picked up Private Practice I was simply looking for something light and quick and a bit naughty... and that's exactly what I got. Only, I also ...more
