Enjoy Your visit lovelies 😉
Emma, a free-spirited bookstore owner in Orlando, keeps her business afloat with innovative ideas. Her most popular evening event is Story Brothel, where customers can pay writers to read aloud to them in a story-time for two, complete with cocktails. Despite the name, the event is usually tame.
But things take a steamy turn when a handsome, urbane businessman hires Emma for a session in a private cabana. Daringly, she shares with him areading of her erotica. Soon both of them are feeling the effects … and Emma’s wondering what kind of lover is underneath his expensive suit.
Caleb may be a billionaire real estate mogul, but he’s never been captivated by a woman as he is by the lovely, quirky Emma. Her rockabilly vintage dresses make him long to strip them off and do very wicked things to her. And her refusal to share her personal life only makes him more curious.
Soon the couple are spending every available moment together. But Emma’s building is in danger of being razed out from under her bookstore …and worse, Caleb may be behind her problems. Can she trust him with her life as she does with her body? Or will the prickly walls built during her harsh past keep them apart?
**This is a stand-alone novella. But Caleb and Emma’s journey will continue in the summer of 2016…**
I adore reading about books, writers, and bookstores – it feels like the author is trying to write about my thoughts and feelings – best kind of books, let me tell you!
So when I come across a book (or rather a novella!) about a woman who READS to her customers in an event called Story Brothel – I JUST FREAKING JUMPED AT THE CHANCE!
And I AM SO GLAD THAT I DID!
For the FIRST TIME, I am oh so satisfied with a novella – I usually am not, the length of the story usually makes it so that I can’t enjoy it very much – but Ms. Lush does a PRETTY DARN PERFECT JOB of making this novella seem like a full length one!
This one had the perfect amount of s*xy times, the pace of character development and their relationship with each other is smooth, the amount of angst is perfectly blended in a way that makes it feel like a romance that is more real than fictional.
In short – this was the book I needed to get over funk, that I could physically feel coming over me when it came to reading!
Emma is a bookstore owner – she holds events that are a little out of your imagination, but the perfect stress buster for adults – Trust me, if any bookstore had this concept I would end up spending every evening there!
Caleb is a billionaire, hot and absolutely drool worthy – in short, he is the PERFECT FICTIONAL BOYFRIEND – and if the key word wasn’t fictional (and I wasn’t taken!), Emma would have had a fight on her hands!
I adored their interaction – so beautifully written and felt – their connection isn’t just physical but something soul-worthy!
I was invested in their relationship right from the START – and nothing, not even the fact that I had work could keep me away from this book – that’s how wonderful I found these two!
Did they make mistakes? Yes, they did! They are humans after all, even if they are fictional 😉
And the BEST PART – I had the next installment already on my Kindle (even though this CAN BE READ AS A STANDALONE!)
Trust me, this is a romance you NEED to get your hands on! It’s brilliant and unique and wonderful and I can’t wait for me!
UPDATE: I JUST FOUND OUT THIS WILL BE A FIVE PART SERIAL! EEEP!
