Book: Misadventures of a City Girl
Authors: Meredith Wild & Chelle Bliss
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Fresh off a divorce from a Hollywood hotshot, Madison Atwood needs an escape. With the paparazzi fresh on her heels and her love life splashed on every tabloid, she runs away to a swanky retreat in Northern California. Avalon Springs is the mountainside haven she needs to find herself again.
Luke Dawson lives off the grid, preferring solitude to society. When he finds a beautiful woman soaking in the hot springs on his property, he can’t stop himself from watching her. She captures his attention, but she’s just a city girl—a beautiful distraction disturbing the peace he’s settled here to find.
When Madison discovers Luke’s secluded cabin, he can’t turn her away again. They make no promises. Madison needs to feel wanted again, and Luke misses the touch of a woman. But when mother nature has other plans, they’re forced to spend more than a night of passion together. Can Luke say goodbye to the only woman who’s made him feel anything in years, and can Madison leave behind the man who brought her back to life?
Groveling will help… Couldn’t stay married this long without eating a few slices of humble pie… Remember you’re wrong, she’s right, and it’ll always turn out in your favor.
I’ve never been so present with someone. It probably had to do with the lack of distractions. No cell phones, television, or Internet makes focusing on each other inescapable.
In the center is a king size bed made out of thick logs… “I made it myself.” Luke’s chest puffs out with pride… “I made sure its construction would stand up to rigorous use.”
Madison was an LA girly-girl in transition as a recently betrayed, humiliated, and freshly divorced woman who is still smarting from being dumped by her first love/movie star husband. She treats herself to a month long mountain spa retreat where she happens across a hermit/mountain man/Greek god/sexy lumberjack/Former Decorated Navy SEAL, who lives quietly and off the grid to accommodate his PTSD and rippling muscles. Of course, they have off the charts sexual chemistry and set fire to the sheets like adolescent bunny rabbits. Oh my, the storyline was highly sensual, smokin’ hot, and highly likely to cause dehydration, even for a nun. There was a transformative, sweet, and curative love story evolving during and between all the erotic sex and I actually adored this couple together.
