A flirtatious reading of erotica blossoms into something deep and tender in the steamy Florida heat...
Tell Me a Story...
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?
Sweet, sexy and enjoyable !
Very well written, this romance with some hot sex has a good balance between hot, flirtatious scenes as well as a credible development. Sure, the plot may be something of a déjà vu but it's perfectly well directed by the author's words.
The atmosphere is playfull and light. Sure, the male character is a rich one but the author has been able to make her personnage, Caleb, lovable and approchable. Emma is a cool one to spent a great night of reading with. :-D
Perfect to relax or to enjoy at the beach.
