What woman can resist a hot man in a hard hat? Beloved author Ruthie Knox kicks off her new Camelot series with this deliciously sexy original novella, in which a good girl learns how to misbehave . . . with all her heart.
As program director for the Camelot Community Center, Amber Clark knows how to keep her cool. That is, until a sudden tornado warning forces her to take shelter in a darkened basement with a hunk of man whose sex appeal green lights her every fantasy. With a voice that would melt chocolate, he asks her if she is okay. Now she’s hot all over and wondering: How does a girl make a move?
Building contractor Tony Mazzara was just looking to escape nature’s fury. Instead, he finds himself all tangled up with lovely Amber. Sweet and sexy, she’s ready to unleash her wild side. Their mutual desire reaches a fever pitch and creates a storm of its own—unexpected, powerful, and unforgettable. But is it bigger than Tony can handle? Can he let go of painful memories and let the force of this remarkable woman show him a future he never dreamed existed
Hot, Sweet and to the point! This book was a pretty damn good novella that introduced two characters that we will see more of in the coming Camelot Series. Amber Clark is your typical shy, mousy woman who has lived a pretty sheltered life but when she meets Tony Mazzara that quickly changes. All her life Amber has tried to be good to win her mothers approval and find favor with a God she isn't even sure exists. This isn't a story about finding faith though because Amber quickly realizes she wants Tony to show her just how to be a bad girl. Tony isn't into relationships. They never work out and he can't take letting someone down so he doesn't tie himself to anyone. When he gets locked in the storm cellar with Amber she gets under his skin in a big way. The spark between these two is obvious from the beginning no matter how they fight it. I really loved Tony. He was very sexy and sweet when he wanted to be. You have to admire a guy who realizes he isn't relationship material and comes right out and says "Pardon me darlin' I never promised you a rose garden" or however that lame ass song goes. The thing that surprised me the most was the way Amber and her mother bonded over ice cream during a moment in the book when Amber was figuring things out. They have a sweet heart to heart and Amber starts to understand why her mother has been so tough on her growing up. It was really nice to see some depth in this story with it being so short and I absolutely love the way Ruthie writes. You get into these characters heads just enough to understand why they do what they do! What was the best part?
Yep! I went there! Despite it being a short story there were several really steamy scenes that will get those big granny panties of yours all juiced up! This is a definite must read not only for the hotness but because the next book is even hotter! Shhhh...
The next book in this series is even better and it's much longer so you get a glimpse at all the saucy, suspenseful and dramatic goodness Ruthie brings to the table!
About The Author:
Ruthie Knox figured out how to walk and read at the same time in the second grade, and she hasn’t looked up since. She spent her formative years hiding romance novels in her bedroom closet to avoid the merciless teasing of her brothers and imagining scenarios in which someone who looked remarkably like Daniel Day Lewis recognized her well-hidden sex appeal and rescued her from middle-class Midwestern obscurity. After graduating from Grinnell College with an English and history double major, she earned a Ph.D. in modern British history that she’s put to remarkably little use. These days, she writes contemporary romance in which witty, down-to-earth characters find each other irresistible in their pajamas, though she freely admits this has yet to happen to her. Perhaps she needs more exciting pajamas. Ruthie abhors an epilogue and insists a decent romance requires at least three good sex scenes.
