Tell Me a Story


Pages turn and sparks fly when bookstore owner Emma Price meets a billionaire at a literary event.

I wanted him the second I looked into his steel-blue eyes.

“How much?” he asked. It was a sexy voice, a deep voice, and I smiled-a smile that alluded to everything but promised nothing, aware of appearing coy and knowing and not-too-eager.

I was in the mood to flirt.

* * * * *

Emma, a beautiful 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’s 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 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?

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 🙂

Florida heat, spontaneous readings of erotica, a book shop owner and a businessman–do we have your attention? Once you devour the first few pages of Tell Me a Story, Christian Grey will be a distant and very vanilla memory.

Tamara Lush tells a story of undeniable lust and temptation.
Tell Me a Story was a fast-paced novella which delivered hot, sparks flying moments and was sexy as hell and left me fanning myself and in search of a tall glass of ice water to extinguish the flames.
Tami Talbert, The Book Enthusiast
I have read 400 page books that left me with far less than this short story. Loved the ending as well as the character development. This book really leaves you feeling like you read a full novel.
