I've had this book on my TBR for a while and I'm so glad I finally read it! What a gem! It's more than your usual "supermodel falls for nerd" romance. These characters have so much depth...the supermodel who writes poetry and the nerd with a sexy dominant side. Their banter is charming and sweet and their sexual chemistry smoldered until it exploded against the bookshelves. Cal and Lucia will have you sighing and smiling from start to finish.

Who knew hiding under those layers of awkward, bumbling nerd was a perfectly straight eight-inch cock?

"I can picture it: your back arching off the floor, your wrists bound above your head. My hands, holding your thighs down as I licked you. Deeply. Thoroughly. The taste of you on my tongue for hours afterward, driving me insane. I wanted you to come. And yo would have, as many times as I demanded."

From The Publisher


Two souls, drawn together beneath a fierce sky…

Calvin Ellis’s neat and orderly life is shattered when his grandfather dies, leaving him ownership of a quirky bookstore in Big Sur, California. The Mad Ones: once a place famous for poetry readings and bohemian rebellion, it now teeters on the brink of financial ruin.

Lucia Bell’s glamorous life as a super model is put into stark perspective when she shows up for a photo shoot, at a bookstore, in the middle of nowhere. She finds herself oddly intrigued by the quiet, nerdy owner with the huge glasses reading behind the register.

One night they share a passionate and frenzied kiss against a bookshelf. Outside the store, lightning strikes. Trees topple. And the world shakes beneath their feet.

As the storm tears its way through Big Sur, Calvin and Lucia share and explore their most secret desires. Hopes and dreams they once thought lost are recaptured. But inevitably, as reality roars back, they find themselves stuck at a crossroads.
Two conflicting paths. And each must make their own decision.

Which life will they choose? And will it include the other?


My romance novel obsession started when I was a kid reading my Mom's Jackie Collins novels. I love the steamy romances and I like my men to be alpha males and my ladies to be quirky and strong. I need the HEA but it’s OK if it takes 2 or 3 or 10 books to get there. Lee Nightingale is my forever, it's Chase Abandonato...for now.

I’m a Mom of 2 daughters, 4 cats and a dog, a travel junkie, cruising in particular, and a Disney fanatic. I love all things beach and all things books!
