Misadventures of a City Girl
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 feeling anything in years, and can Madison leave behind the man who brought her back to life?
I picked up this cute little paperback at a book signing. Not only is it super cute, but also super steamy. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Leave the undies at home ladies, mountain-man Luke Dawson won’t let you keep them anyway! This one is smoking hot. If book 1 is any indication of how good this series will be, sign me up for EVERY book!
Here’s the breakdown:
Reeling from the shock of her divorce, Madison leaves LA for the mountain retreat of Avalon. She wants to take a step back from everything and everyone. The resort isn’t quite what she expects, so she ventures up the mountain to the nearby hot springs. While “enjoying” herself at the springs, she sees Luke watching her. Their attraction is instantaneous. They waste little time exploring that attraction.
Here’s what I loved:
The authors didn’t hold back with this one. It’s bold and unapologetic. I was a bit shocked at how things began, but as the story continued and I learned more about both main characters and the circumstances surrounding their current predicaments, I was a goner. I adore Madison and how confident she is despite the recent blow to her ego. And Luke is sex on a stick.
Luke is a mountain man in every sense of the word. He lives a primitive lifestyle in the wilds of the mountains and avoids people. After meeting Madison, his need to separate from people eases. She becomes a balm for him. He is literally her savior. I really enjoy instant attraction, especially when it really makes sense. When the characters provide a missing piece to the other. That’s what this sweet story portrays.
The steam factor is set to MAX! That’s right down my alley.
Overall, this spicy start to the series has me super excited for more. Grab this book as soon as you can. Loved it!
