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 feel anything in years, and can Madison leave behind the man who brought her back to life?
Madison Atwood’s need to escape from the gossip and drudgery of ‘keeping up appearances’ in Hollywood leads her on one hell of an adventure, and while she never thought she would be one to believe in and experience the adage of the best way to get over someone was to get under someone else, all it takes is one lonely and sexy mountain man to send her body and her mind into overdrive, allowing a city girl completely out of her element to redefine herself while also proving to someone who would rather not spend time with other people that the right person can be worth the interruption of his solitary life.Meredith Wild and Chelle Bliss have collaborated on one erotic story of misadventure in the most delicious and sensual ways, and while I would have liked more character development and a bit more understanding of who Luke Dawson was/is, I also understand that Madison and Luke’s novella is meant to be about an unexpected journey that goes off the rails but turns into something that both of them desperately needed even if they didn’t realize it when they first met.
And now that the Misadventures series has begun, I can’t wait to see what the other authors’ texts have in store for readers because I’m sure they’ll be as unpredictable and entertaining as the City Girl’s misadventure.
