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

The Test is book two in The List series by Tawna Fenske. Tawna is a new to me author and this is one of those times when I’m smacking myself in the forehead and asking, why oh why have I not read anything of hers before. This book is fantastic. It’s so funny it made me snort laugh, while on the trea ...more

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 market ...more

First person, Dual-POV, HAE. Can be read as standalone.

I love my tattooed boys from the wrong side of the tracks. Just mmf.

Another really great addition to the List series by Tawna Fenske.

Both installments seem to follow the same formula - i.e. man and woman enter deal, have crazy (hot) monkey sex ...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!

True story, I was going to read the new Sarah Ballance book, but I had just finished another contemporary English romance so decided to read this instead. But then forgot my decision. So I'm reading this thinking "wow, Sarah has really gone in a different direction with this series!". Anyhoo.

Lisa Mi ...more

Talk about an opposites attract story, The Test by Tawna Fenske pairs an interior decorator who feels she must always maintain an upper crust, polished personality with a self made entrepreneur who doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty and whose family is as far from blue blooded as you could expect. ...more

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

Lisa can most definitely come across as stuck up, snobby and uptight. It's not purposely done though. What happens when you question every choice you've made?. Well, She jumps head first into the deep end t ...more

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! Lisa and Dax were so hot and scorching and their connection was fantastic. I was hooked from the first page. This novel was laugh out lou ...more

Lisa thought she had the perfect life, until her fiance left her at the altar and her reality changed. She can't help but question everything about herself and her life, as well as her ability to make decisions. She obviously picked the wrong man regardless of how right she thought he was, so she ge ...more

Opposites attract in this sexy cute story. Lisa is a interior designer who was recently left at the alter. She self describes herself as pretentious and predictable. She needed a change and wanted to spice up her life. Dax is a big tattooed hunk of a ...more

By Sofia´s February 28, 2018

After reading "The List" and loving it, i got super excited when i found that not book two was coming (soon), but also that it would be about the put-together Lisa and someone that would for sure turn her world upside down.
And mine too, mind you. 💗
I guess my weakness for #BadBoys is showing.

By MountainKat June 17, 2018

I enjoyed this story. The characters were fun. I liked how they they each stretched their boundaries and grew individually. They were so good together, I was glad for their happy ending.

I listened to the audio with Joe Arden and Virginia Rose narrating and enjoyed it. ...more

“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—who ...more

At the end of The List, book 1 in the series, Lisa, one of Cassie's older sisters, was left at the alter by her fiancé.

By Misty (Reds Romance Reviews) February 04, 2018

Every decision that Lisa Michaels has ever made has been based on the expectations placed on her, there is not really a time when she can remember making a choice for herself, and now that she has been dumped at the altar she is starting to realize maybe it was the wrong approach all along. She has ...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 isn ...more

By Denise February 21, 2018

Needing a break from more darker reads this one fits the bill. This author knows how to write a romance that tingles you from head to toe. You have Lisa who is thrown off of what she thought she was going with making her do different. Switching it up is fun once in a while but in here you get to see ...more

4.5 stars. This book was a bit rough around the edges, but for some reason I just LOVED it! The MCs are awesome, they have such a cute relationship. And they don't behave the way you expect. This book felt like it had all the things you love, but injected with life and something new. While it's not ...more

By Kait February 19, 2018

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

By Danielle February 24, 2018

4 stars!
I enjoyed this book! Sometimes, I think I need to try doing the opposite of that I should be doing to see what would happen in life. That is exactly what Lisa does under the guidance of Dax. This was a fun read. My firs from this author and it won't be my last! ...more
