Book Summary: What woman can resist a hot man in a hard hat? Beloved author Ruthie Knox kicks off her new Camelot series with this deliciously sexy original novella, in which a good girl learns how to misbehave . . . with all her heart.

As program director for the Camelot Community Center, Amber Clark knows how to keep her cool. That is, until a sudden tornado warning forces her to take shelter in a darkened basement with a hunk of man whose sex appeal green lights her every fantasy. With a voice that would melt chocolate, he asks her if she is okay. Now she’s hot all over and wondering: How does a girl make a move?

Building contractor Tony Mazzara was just looking to escape nature’s fury. Instead, he finds himself all tangled up with lovely Amber. Sweet and sexy, she’s ready to unleash her wild side. Their mutual desire reaches a fever pitch and creates a storm of its own–unexpected, powerful, and unforgettable. But is it bigger than Tony can handle? Can he let go of painful memories and let the force of this remarkable woman show him a future he never dreamed existed?

Review: I really enjoyed this novella about the good girl with the less-than-pure thoughts about the hot guy who’s working construction at her job. She’s innocently intrigued, and he’s not quite the bad boy he appears to be.

The story is short, but fun and sexy, as Amber draws the true Tony out from behind his hard-as-nails exterior and Tony teaches Amber all the good things about being ‘bad.’

I love that Amber, while shy, says what she thinks, means, and feels. And because she does, she’s able to tell Tony exactly what she wants. And oh, does he give it to her.

With very well-developed characters for a novella, this book has done what it’s supposed to: intrigued me enough to seek out others in the series. Which I will be doing. If the rest of Ruthie Knox’s books are as as fun and sexy as this one, I’m sure to enjoy them.
