Tell Me a Story Synopsis:
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 is a stand-alone novella. But Caleb and Emma’s journey will continue in the summer of 2016…**

|A story of a couple from different social circles falling for each might seem repetitive, but Tell Me A Story does just a bit different than the rest. First the couple is older, mature. She’s early 30s and he’s forty
Also, there’s no over complicated obstacle keeping them apart. Of course there’s a problem they need to work out, but its simple and realistic and not drawn out. Third the minor characters are just that, minor. They don’t over complicate things or take away focus from the main couple.
I was given an arc in exchange for a honest review.
