Series: Yes, The Story Series #1.
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Subject: Sexy bedtime stories and a woman letting go of her fears.
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 a reading 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 got this book for an honest review on Netgalley and it’s also an Amazon Freebie Today!
I have to be honest; when I read the synopsis of the book I had such high expectations that unfortunately weren’t met. I’m not saying it’s a bad book it was interesting, and the characters were beautifully described, but I was hoping for a little more spice to it.
The whole erotica reading subject had so much potential, I needed a little bit more of the sexy moments for the characters on their first encounter, it was just too short for me.
That being said it was still a good story and they get to connect and captivate the reader with their intensity.
We do get an intense scene while she reads to him at his house the first time, that was totally worth the read, they seemed so connected to each other, you almost feel you are right there with them.
Overall it’s a good short read, and what I got from the book was the idea that you need to let go of your past and give people a chance, not everybody is the same and some people really want you for who you are.
Taking chances is the only way to find happiness, it’s scary, but in the end, it’s worth it!
