Description from the publisher:

Does the single-dad billionaire want to pay me to take care of his daughter’s needs or to satisfy his own dark desires?

Saying that life has dealt me a lousy hand would be an understatement.  I barely escaped an abusive ex-husband, only to end up starting over in a crappy apartment with a crappy job.

And now I’ve been dealt a good hand for once.

I’m to become the live-in nanny to the daughter of Jackson Ritter, the rich, hunky best-selling author who can make me blush with his eyes and melt at his touch.

But the way he looks at me tells me that he wants something more, something hot and steamy. Something… dirty.

I can’t sleep with him. I won’t. Otherwise my ex-husband’s right. I’m just a whore who f*cks her boss for money.

But I don’t know what to think when Jackson calls me his muse… and what do I do when my ex-husband threatens any chance I have at happiness?

My publisher is pressuring me for another best seller, but I haven’t written a word since my wife died in a car accident with her lover, my best friend. Being a single dad isn’t easy either.

I’ve got 2 weeks to hand in a full draft, otherwise I stand to lose everything. But I just can’t get passed this writer’s block.

So hiring a nanny to look after my daughter is my last hope.

The minute I see her standing at my door, I know that I have to have her.  She’s young, pretty, innocent, utterly delicious…

I want her in my bed… naked, willing, eager, begging for more… She will be mine.

She will be my muse.

But she’s not here for me. She’s here to take care of my daughter.

And what if she turns out to be just as crazy as my ex-wife?

Tia Siren. Spoil the bad girl in you.

This is the sixth book in the Big Bad Series from Tia Siren.  Each stands completely on its own with no cross-over.  Therefore they can be read in any order or you can pick and choose your favorite big-bad-boy type(s).

I love the innocence in both of these characters.  Yes, I would consider Jackson an innocent.  He has every right to guard his heart and yet fate brings him a new muse and reawakens his heart.

I love the quick and steamy stories brought to us by Tia Siren.  Another one that I could not put down and read in just one day.  I’m looking forward to many more!

MISADVENTURES OF A CITY GIRL by Chelle Bliss & Meredith Wild

Series:  Misadventures #1

Publish Date:   09.12.2017
Publisher:  Waterhouse Press
Category /Genre:  Contemporary Romance
Recommended for:  18+ due to sexual content

Description from the publisher:
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?

MISADVENTURES OF A CITY GIRL is the first book in the Misadventures series.  This is a collaboration series and each book will stand on its own with no need to have read the previous books, but I’m not going to skip any of them!

This is a second chances story.  Not a second chance with each other; they had never met before.  No, it is a second chance at life.  The life they were meant to have had and they are meant for each other from the moment he finds himself mesmerized watching her masturbating in the hot springs on his mountain.  But, a mountain man will never be happy in the city and the city girl tucked away in the mountains is only a retreat, not a lifestyle.  Now doesn’t THAT sound like the beginning of a story you want to read? 

I was singing the theme from Green Acres while reading this one.  Don’t know it?  Gah, I’m showing my age.  It was a TV sit-com in the mid to late 60s about a New York lawyer, played by Eddie Albert, who wants to escape the rat race and buys a farm in Hooterville, USA.  His wife was played by Eva Gabor and the quintessential society lady with a European accent.  She did not want to leave the city.  She didn’t understand the draw of all of the fresh air and sunshine.  While Madison did understand retreating from the city to lick her wounds from a very public divorce, living in the mountains wasn’t her dream.

I absolutely loved this steamy, sexy, romantic story.  I’m looking forward to reading more of the Misadventures that will be coming soon!
