Great Story and Characters
Misadventures of a City Girl (Misadventures Book 1) - Chelle Bliss,Meredith Wild

Madison felt she was the complete picture of a miserable divorcee. Madison thought when all the paperwork had been finalized something would change….. She herself would change . Madison was no longer the wife of the rising star. The failure of her marriage had been a devastating blow to Madison can't let her famous  and infamously unfaithful husband Jeremy  ruin her future. Although sometimes it feels to Madison like Jeremy was everywhere. Clients, gigs, and friends were still in their circle and Madison felt like she needed to get away from L A. Madison had stood by faithfully as Jeremy rose to fame. Jeremy and madison had met as naive fumbling teenagers they have been together every since. Madison had been stupid in love with Jeremy then. Madison started to look for a spa retreat as she needed a real break, something restorative. Something that could heal all the tears in her heart.  Madison needed some quiet time, maybe a few massages, and some fresh mountain air. Then she sees Avalon Springs - home cooked meals, yoga classes, a few outdoor excursions and big blocks of time  to help people recenter themselves. The owners look like hippies and the place doesn’t look like a convoluted trap for the prima donnas Madison is hoping to take a break from. So Madison booked a four week stay. Once there at Avalon Springs  a young girl tells Madison orientation is in an hour but it was more like a meet and greet. Madison would introduce herself to the other residents, do some breathing exercises and stretching and Vic and Lori will talk a little more about the springs. But Madison didn’t want to go to orientation. And she already felt she may have made an utter mistake coming to Avalon Springs. The landscape was different from anything Madison was used to. She’d been an East Coast  Girl all her life, working on her career and then when Jeremy came out west to work on his career Madison came with him.  Tears burned Madison’s eyes because she is so utterly alone. Madison had been walking for awhile and night is coming on and she doesn’t know where she is or where she is going but then she hears water and shortly after finds she finds a clearing  a well of steamy water at the center. The temperature of the water was perfect. Madison figures this is the springs and she is free to go in. So Madison strips and gets in the water. Nothing ever felt so good. Then Madison feels the need  of a man and one who won’t break her all over again. Madison tries to get herself off but just get herself there but then she can see a man through the trees and screams. Luke was not sure why he had stopped  to watch her. Another city girl from the retreat. Luke moves closer as Madison goes back in the water to hide her nakedness. Then Luke asked Madison if she knew her way back and offered to take her back to the retreat Luke told Madison she was at least a mile from the retreat Luke hadn’t been with a woman in a long time and he despises everything this one probably stands for. Luke is hot for the woman but  a week in the mountains is a fashion statement for most of the people who come to the resort. Luke had came to the mountain for solitude and peace, and a simple life. After her swim Madison had no makeup on and Luke felt she was perfectly gorgeous with no effort.Restful sleep had eluded Madison since the news of Jeremy’s infidelity was in every gossip magazine and newspaper in town. The phone calls and texts had kept her awake and unable to move on. The man in the woods had looked at Madison with pure lust the was Jeremy used to before he strayed. Luke’s grandfather had left him this land over fifty acres of mountaintop. Luke hadn’t planned on living there. But after his last tour of duty and release from the service Luke thought about going to his  old life and being part of civilian society sent Luke into a tailspin. Luke had put his own blood,sweat, and tears into his place and made it a home. It was suppose to be Luke’s escape , his haven from the outside world. Luke had thought he would have the American Dream - get married, buy a house, and have kids to fill it. But his time in the military messed that up. Luke thought he had been prepared for whatever he was going to experience while in the service . Before joining the Navy Luke had dreams of a normal life, none of them had involved living in the woods high up a mountain living alone. Luke had seen and done things he didn't want to relive or repeat. Luke didn’t have any issues until his last tour of duty. There didn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to their assignments. The violence seemed endless. By the time Luke was discharged as a decorated Navy Seal Luke couldn’t imagine going back to “ normal life”.  Luke’s  PTSD was so severe that even the sound of a car backfiring could set Luke off. The only cure was self imposed isolation. Luke could function around people when he has to. Violence wasn’t Luke’s style or in his nature. Luke had sworn to serve and protect not attack and scare. One minute the woman was frightened the next touching him.The contact had shocked him,  completely  rocked Luke to his core. Luke grows his own food and raises livestock and cuts wood everyday to have enough wood to heat his cabin through winter and any other cold weather. The woman had worked erh way into Luke’s mind and shows up at Luke’s cabin while Luke was trying to take care of himself as he was so sexually frustrated especially after seeing her naked and doing the same thing. Madison doesn’t turn away from Luke . They enter into an intense sexual relationship.But then feelings start to grow but Luke knows his limitations and can’t leave his mountain. And Madison’s life is in L A.  Luke felt Madison had saved him but Madison he had actually saved her and turned her into the woman she was always meant to be. This was a very sweet, sexy easy enjoyable read and I loved it. I loved how Luke could not look away from Madison when she was at the springs and she didn’t look away from him in his cabin. The chemistry between Madison and Luke jumped right off the page. I loved the plot and the pace. While reading this book I didn't want to put this down, good thing it was a novella but I did want more. I loved how Luke nor Madison could fight their feelings no matter what they did. But I loved them together. I felt this was a realistic story that could happen. I loved seeing the growth between Madison and Luke. I wish I had a Luke in my life but he will just have to be one of my favorite book boyfriends. I couldn’t find anything to complain about and that is always great when reading a book. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I highly recommend.

Misadventures of a City Girl (Misadventures Book 1) - Chelle Bliss,Meredith Wild

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?

Great read
Misadventures of a City Girl - Meredith ... Misadventures of a City Girl - Meredith Wild,Chelle Bliss

This was a good read that I couldn't put down. Madison wanted to go on a retreat after her very public divorce from her husband, they are both from Hollywood, her ex husband cheated and she wants to get away and goes to a retreat. Luke is a man that lives in the mountains outside the retreat and lives on his own and tries to stay away from everyone. When they run into each other and Madison needs his help the chemistry and sparks are flying. This is a great fast moving story and I could not put this book down.

Both these authors have not disappointed with this book. And I am looking forward to the other books in this series, even though they are all standalone who doesn't want to read them all.

Lots of steam
Misadventures of a City Girl (Misadventures Book 1) - Chelle Bliss,Meredith Wild

This is my first read by these authors and I'd heard some great things about them. However, this one didn't quite live up to my expectations. The writing style and flow are good, but while it was certainly erotic, the plot left something to be desired. I knew this one would be steamy and had no issue with that, but there wasn't much in the way of build-up or sexual tension between Madison and Luke. It felt like they were tearing each other's clothes off before I even had time to connect with either character or want to see them together. The sex scenes were good, but without some depth of the characters involved, it becomes just one sexy time after another that could be in any romance. Overall, it's not a bad story if you like erotica with a little story thrown in, but for this reader, it was just an okay read.
