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…**

You know, I think it says a lot about an author’s ability with prose if they can make you completely forget the, most of the time hard to buy, insta-love/lust they’ve written into their story because the passion between the leads is to electric and powerful! Tamara Lush made that possible for me in Tell Me A Story.
The story-line is fresh. It’s new and it’s unconventional … who even thinks a story-time trope would even work with adults. I honestly thought I was about to read the most ridiculous story ever. I like it when I’m wrong 🙂
The story is fueled by the sexual nature of Emma and Caleb’s journey, but it is also laced with so much humor you just will not be able to put it down. It’s a short read but it not lacking by any means. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a quick, sexy entertaining good time 🙂 #TRUST

Emma and Caleb spend nearly all their free time enjoying each other sensually, but she wonders how permanent their relationship will be.
Emma’s beloved Orlando bookstore is saved, thanks to Caleb’s quick actions. She’s caught up in a dizzying whirl of work and play, between her business, his palatial condo and the romantic getaways her handsome real estate mogul plans. But her 35th birthday brings not only sweet gifts, but the bitter realization that if she’s going to have a family, it has to be now. She wants forever, but what about Caleb?
Caleb is in love for the first time in his life, and he can’t do enough for his raven-haired temptress. He’s happy living in the now, showering her with gifts to make up for her childhood, spent in poverty. But when Emma brings up the future, it becomes clear that she’s not the only one with a past that can rear up and threaten their happiness. Despite all the daring exploration he persuades her into, marriage may just be his hard limit. Will he find a way past his darkest fears?
