Length: 193 pages

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 my first read from Tamara Lush and so I didn't know what to expect. Although this installment was short, it was interesting and quite steamy. If this is what I have to look forward to in this series, then it's off to a good start.

I liked the premise of the story because it was unique (to me). Emma was a bookstore owner/erotica writer who particiapted in an event in which she reads aloud to a "reader" for charity. Her "reader" on this particular day was Caleb. As she read to him, the sexual tension seemed to leap from the pages.

With her own brand of insta-feelings (primarily lust from my viewpoint), the author gave a great introduction to these characters.
