The Naked Men don’t have anything to hide. Now the sexy control freak in this “purely delightful group of buddies” (Publishers Weekly, starred review of Wanting It All) meets his match: a free spirit who’s as beautiful as she is reckless.
Order. Attention to detail. Never leaving anything to chance. These are the qualities that make Riley Ness such a terrific federal agent . . . and a pain in the ass to everyone else. The only time Riley lets loose is when he’s hanging out with his closest pals. So when he’s thrown together with gorgeous, flighty Summer Sheridan, Riley’s brain tells him she’s a ticking time bomb—but his body doesn’t want to play by the rules.
Riley has to be the most irritating man Summer has ever met. The brooding hunk thinks he needs to teach her a few lessons about real life, while she’d rather show him how to enjoy it. But her BFF’s all but engaged to Riley’s best friend, and besides, their intense physical chemistry is all too real. Summer just needs Riley to try to meet her halfway and take a chance with the one thing that matters: his heart.

Praise for Trying It All
“The novel is filled with moments of humor and searing sexual tension, and its lighthearted approach to life-altering events adds depth and breadth to the passion.”—Publishers Weekly
“Fun and entertaining yet complicated and emotional, not to mention supremely satisfying, Trying It All is a fantastic addition to Christi Barth’s Naked Men series.”—Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
“Christi Barth is a master of making sexual chemistry leap off the page. Trying It All is a book you’ll wish you could step right into, with a hero you’ll want to claim for your next book boyfriend.”—New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne
“Sigh-worthy! Barth delivers rich, distinctive characters, and a story that grips your heart.”—Jessica Lemmon, author of Eye Candy
“For those who want a hate to love romance, I recommend Trying It All by Christi Barth. It is the fourth in the Naked Men series, all of which I highly recommend, and although it can be read as standalone, with this series it is best to start at the beginning to get the full background and friendships.”—Harlequin Junkie
“I wish I had been able to sit down and read this straight through because I didn’t want to put it down. Unfortunately, I had to stop to get some sleep. I’m really looking forward to reading the next book which I hope will be about Josh, the last Naked Man standing.”—Xtreme Delusions (five stars)
“I always enjoy my visits with The Naked Men!”—Thoughts of a Blonde
Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
In Barth's fourth Naked Men contemporary (after Giving It All), a woman who doesn't believe in commitment meets a man who has backup plans for his backup plans. Buttoned-up National Transportation Safety Board agent Riley Ness is one of five men who have formed a solid brotherhood born out of past tragedy. That tragedy shaped Riley into the controlling man he is today. His careful attention to detail is what keeps him anchored in reality. It's no wonder that seemingly flighty clothing store owner Summer Sheridan, the best friend of his buddy's girlfriend, drives him crazy: her zest for life comes with a devil-may-care attitude. Yet Summer's larger-than-life personality developed out of her own trauma after a mass shooting during college. Neither can deny their combustible attraction, and when they look beneath each other's surfaces, they both begin to understand themselves. The novel is filled with moments of humor (much based on previously established events) and searing sexual tension, and its lighthearted approach to life-altering events adds depth and breadth to the passion.
