Tell Me a Story: Episode ONE of The Story Series
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?

Emma Price is a sexy local bookstore owner who has hopes of keeping actual books alive in a world of electronic devices. Her store hosts many events, one of which is a Story Brothel where writers read to paying customers. It was an ordinary night until she met Caleb. There was something about the sexy guy in the suit that had her libido going into overdrive.
Caleb King is a successful real-estate mogul who happens upon Emma's event by tagging along with his sister. Being well read, he figured a few hours in a book store couldn't hurt. However, he wasn't prepared to be drawn to Emma like a bee to honey. It was her quirky style that caught his attention, but once she started reading erotic works of her own to him, he realized he never wanted her to stop.
Unable to deny their attraction, the couple falls headlong into a passionate relationship, spending every moment together. While Caleb is an open book and wants things to progress, Emma's not used to letting anyone see all of her and plays it safe. Can Caleb convince Emma that he's worthy of her heart or will Emma let a misunderstanding get in the way of true love?
I picked up this book not knowing it was a novella series. (There are five in total). However, I loved every word of it! The story is fantastic and the characters are well developed and likable. I was sucked into the story from page one and couldn't wait to see what happened next. The chemistry between Emma and Caleb was hot, hot, hot! If you're looking for a sexy, fast, highly enjoyable read, pick up this series. You'll be glad you did
