This is a test. A test of every life decision Lisa Michaels has ever made.

Lisa thought she’d gotten everything right: The nicest condo, the right career, the best hair, and a perfectly adequate sex life with her stockbroker fiancé. But when the fiancé ditches her at the altar, Lisa’s left questioning every decision she’s ever made. What if her instincts have been steering her wrong all along? And what if she tested that theory by spending one month doing the exact opposite of what she’d normally do?

A crazy-hot fling with a tattooed steelworker from the wrong side of the tracks seems like a good starting point...


"The hottest, sexiest, most hilariously fun opposites attract story I’ve ever read!" - USA TODAY Bestselling Author SAMANTHE BECK

“I smirked and gasped my way through this delightfully naughty and amusing 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. And if you just heard someone yell, “Home run!” - that would be me.” – Books & Bindings

“What can I say about this book? I freaking loved it. The book is a must read and as usual Tawna never disappoints. I'd give it 10 stars.” –Lori Z., Goodreads

“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

Sweet and fun, and a lot of dirty.” –Christine L., Goodreads

“I loved this book-gave me all the feels.  Dax is so yummy!” –Robin C., Goodreads

Tawna Fenske will have you holding your sides with laughter in The Test.” –Natalie M., Goodreads

A charming romance with fun characters and scorching hot sex scenes.” –Sommer F., NetGalley

Favorite Quotes:

I can’t see his face, but his shoulders look like he spends his spare time bench-pressing SUVs.

Is this foreplay? I have no idea. Gary’s idea of foreplay was muting the ten o’clock news and patting the mattress beside him. Don’t think I didn’t notice how he’d peer at the stock mark... ...more

I have read two books by this author. One I really enjoyed, the other I didn’t. After reading a review of this book by a Goodreads friend, I decided to take a chance. I’m glad I did!

That good Old line .. we shouldn't judge a book by its cover? Pretty much made for this book.

I have been a big fan of Tawna Fenske after reading The List last year and could not jump on The Test fast enough. I thought this novel was so delicious and sexy!

“I needed to break out of my shell. To try new things. I never realized that until I met you.”

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.

Guys, it’s definitely number two. Hands down. In the care of Tawna Fenske—w... ...more

By Paris February 01, 2018

I have to admit I was a bit skeptical when I read who the heroine of this book was going to be. Lisa came off as snobby and a bit annoying in The List, so I thought I’d have a difficult time connecting with her. I really should have known though since this is Tawna Fenske we’re talking about…she... ...more

Well hot--and I do mean HAWT--damn, what a wild ride. I'm always a fan of opposites attract and these two are the fun "never would've put those together" variety. They absolutely bring out the best in each other, and it was a delight getting to see the other side of Lisa Michaels. Two thumbs up! ...more

Des stéréotypes et des quiproquos en voulez-vous, en voilà en masse ! Tawna Fenske est fidèle à son concept de défis à relever, pas uniquement de nature sexuelle, mais toujours avec une grosse dose d’humour et d’auto-dérision. Même si ça ne casse pas trois pattes à un canard, on ne s’ennuie pas v... ...more

Do you really know yourself? Or does it take someone else to help you TRULY know who you are?

The premise of The Test– a woman who was left at the altar in the past embarks on a month-long test that involves doing the opposite of what she would normally do – was fun and the main characters – Lisa and Dax -seemed believable together.

Always well-written, Tawna Fenske's books are a must-read. Not only for the creative story lines, but the multi-faceted characters, humor, and whip-smart banter.

Sex in a museum ... with Lewis and Clark jokes!

I first heard about Tawna Fenske in August of 2015 when her book "About That Fling" was featured as a "Kindle First." I kind of feel in love with the way that she tells a story.
