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?

This was a great first installment of a new serial! I usually don't like reading serials or incomplete books with multiple "parts" or "episodes," but this was nicely done with more of a "happy for now" ending as opposed to a straight-up cliffhanger.
The way in which Emma and Caleb met was unlike any I had ever read before, and a very interesting idea! Their attraction was instant, and their clever banter back and forth placed their personalities at a compatible level. Combine that with their chemistry and I just knew the sparks would fly!
The love scenes were ON FIRE! Each one was different, and each was full of emotion.
I was a little frustrated with Emma and how she interacted with Caleb, or rather, how she avoided him, at times. But all's well that temporarily ends well, and this first part of the series did end well!
I can't wait to read more about Emma and Caleb!
4.5 Hot stars!
Great beginning to a 5 part series. For bring episode one, I love the fact that the author didn't end on a cliffhanger. If you really want to stop at episode one you could, but I think you'll love Caleb and Emma enough to want to continue their story. I know I do! This is one of those couples that started out as ok. They met in a unique way, but then the more I read, the more I wanted to read about them. Their first time together was very well written and hot! I must leave off this review with a qoute from Caleb that just made me melt.
"If you're falling, I'm falling faster. Which means I'll be there to catch you at the bottom."
