Let go of the past to have any chance at a future…

I’m shocked when Rafael Menendez de Aviles — my first love, my one downfall — appears at my business, offering to save it from bankruptcy. I’m even more stunned when Rafael, looking hotter than ever, makes a proposition: spend the next month together, allowing him to do anything he desires with me.

And make no mistake: he will demand everything, and make me submit.

If I agree to his indecent proposal, my business gets everything it needs — and I get almost everything I desire. But is Rafael only back in my life to show me what I’ve missed all these years? Is he out for revenge? Or something more dangerous — like love? I’m not sure, but I know this: I’m powerless against his touch, his kisses, his body.

Opening our hearts and giving our bodies to each other a second time may destroy us forever…especially when the pain of the past and difficult choices for the future collide.

Burning Secrets #3

b3459-goodreads-badge-add-plus-2d25bb0f32eeac8660c13a521cf00c8e

She’s out of a job. He’s a reclusive, geeky gamer god. Will these two find love again after a complicated past?

Catalina Richardson tries to do everything right, but technology keeps getting in her way. Like when she was in high school and texted naked photos of herself to her boyfriend. That cost her a scholarship and her reputation. And it ended the best relationship she’s ever had.

Now fired from her job at a New York City news website — that politician’s dick pics weren’t her idea — Catalina’s back home on Palmira Island and runs into the one person she’s tried to forget: her ex-boyfriend and first love, Diego Rodriguez.

Diego’s living large. He’s the founder of a wildly successful video game startup, where fans watch him and his buddies play games for a living. Tech magazines say he’s one of the sexiest gamers in the world.

But when Catalina walks back into his life one rainy Florida night, he knows that he needs to set aside his on-camera act. Because he’s not about to lose the woman he loves a second time. 

Trouble is, someone’s trying to thwart Diego’s success and his fragile relationship with Catalina. Will he find out who’s sending him Catalina’s embarrassing old photos? And, will she trust him to make everything right, or keep running away?

#Review: Tell Me a Story, by @TamaraLush

Title: Tell Me a Story (The Story episode #1)
Author: Tamara Lush
Rating: 4/5 stars

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? (description from Goodreads)

Tell Me a Story is the first episode in a five part serial. It’s been awhile since I’ve wanted to read a serial novel, and I’m glad I did. This one’s only five installments, and each are a reasonable length. Both are a plus. Along with them all being released at the time I discovered them helped even more.

Like most serials, there wasn’t too much character development in the grand scheme of things here. This aides in my wanting to continue onto the next episodes. There was just enough to get into Emma’s head and start to enjoy her. On the other hand Caleb is still very mysterious and has most to reveal later on. I’m still on the fence about him, as I’m sure the reader should be.

As for the story itself, I’m even more intrigued after reading it than I was starting. The story brothel event at Emma’s bookstore was a fun idea. I really like how that’s worked into the story outside the bookstore, too. I also thought it was great that the author didn’t make the bookstore life out to be glamorous, as I’ve seen done elsewhere. Emma’s facing real-world problems as a business owner and there are big consequences. Lush was able to bring a lot out in episode one, even if a few elements may have hurt because of this. That’s what the rest of the serial is for, after all.

I’m looking forward to reading more about Emma and Caleb. I’m also crossing my fingers a certain other set of characters gets their own story in the future.
