To say Nicole Torres is having a hard time sleeping would be putting it lightly. After months of wide-awake late nights, the Puerto Rican beauty is finally at her wits' end. That is until she stumbles over a little article on the Internet on how the best cure for insomnia is sex. So what's a sleep- and penis-deprived girl to do? Run straight into the arms of the man who broke her heart a few months ago. She needs his parts, not his promises.

Men don't get more jaded than prize fighter Cyrus Gallagher. After winning a few matches and making a little money, he's sure he's heard every hard luck story in the book from people looking for a handout. But a favor for sex, well that's a new one. If the request had come from anyone else he wouldn't have believed it, but Nicole isn't just anyone. She's the one that got away.

Nicole needs him, wants him, but she doesn't trust him with her heart any longer, just her body. But her body is a great place to start, because once Cyrus has her under him again, he'll do everything in his power to make sure his beauty never sleeps alone again.

Sleepless Beauty is an intensely erotic reunion story. Nicole is an interesting character, she needs Cyrus but she isn’t needy. She is strong, sometimes maybe a little too strong. Cyrus is a man who didn’t realize exactly what he had until it was gone and although I usually am annoyed by heroes like that he was so darn determined and dependable that I couldn’t help but cheer him on. I loved the twins and coach, these were honestly three of the most enjoyable secondary characters I’ve come across in a while. They brought a freshness a lightness into a very serious story and I am still smiling over some of their antics. The sex scenes are raw, intense and if the tenderness hadn’t been there almost vehement. This was one fiery story with a potent and passionate couple.
