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?
Amber Clark is at work at the community center when the tornado siren goes off. She’s there late because one of the workers who is doing construction on the new wing is still there. Yes, Amber has had a crush on the guy from afar but she’s never actually talked to him. Now she has to hang out in the basement with him? Yikes! She’s not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad one.
Tony Mazzara has noticed Amber looking at him but he really hadn’t given her much notice. He thought she kind of looked like a “nice” harmless bunny. Amber is nice but not as nice as he thinks. When they get talking in the basement they learn a lot about each other and Tony realizes that he would love to help this woman learn how to misbehave. He wants to teach her lots of stuff in the bedroom but he can’t get involved with her because of his past. He wasn’t counting on the harmless bunny knocking him to his knees.
This was such a great novella. As the first story in a series about Amber and her siblings it was a great kick-off. I loved the differences between the two characters and how they worked through them. I also really liked the honesty between the two that started in a blackened basement. They felt like they could say anything and they weren’t afraid to admit some things they might not have otherwise.
Though Tony and Amber fall for each other pretty quickly, Knox just made it all work for me. Though it’s only a little over 100 pages I found the story to be fun, exciting, sexy, hot, heart wrenching and sweet all in one shot. I will definitely be reading book 2 in this series.
