Title: Misadventures of a City Girl
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 feeling anything in years, and can Madison leave behind the man who brought her back to life?

Starting over in life sucks. Madison Atwood is a makeup artist in LA and very much in the public eye. After getting a divorce from her tabloid covered cheating husband, Madison is sick of the rat race. She married her ex young, and stood by him as his career took hold. He never once did anything for her. Feeling humiliated, divorced, and tired of putting on a brave face for the paparazzi, she knows she has to get away from it all to find the true Madison again. Visiting the Avalon Springs Retreat in the mountains may just be the ticket.
Upon arriving at the retreat, Madison is fidgety. What do I do now?? Not wanting to see other guests, she decides she wants to tour the property herself. She happens upon the hot springs the retreat is named for, and with no one around, she decides to take a dip in the warm waters-skinny dip that is! She only thought no one was around…..
Luke is a recluse and holed up in his mountain cabin after being discharged from the military. As a decorated Navy Seal, Luke has seen and done things most people would cringe at. He is bad with people, so his life in the clean mountain air, away from civilization is comfort. But he saw her in the springs. He chastises himself for not looking away…but he couldn’t. She was enchanting. Now, she’s all he can think about!
After a second encounter, their attraction boils over and they give into it. The chemistry from these two is undeniable! They can’t get enough of one another! Gosh it was so hot!! Pretty quickly, they both can’t see a life without the other. Luke’s home is in the mountains and Madison’s home is in LA-two very different worlds. Can they somehow find common ground???
I absolutely loved Misadventures of a City Girl!! Having been co-written by two authors, Meredith Wild and Chelle Bliss, you would never guessed it as the story and dialog flowed seamlessly! I fell in love with this couple from the get-go and I knew they had to somehow figure out a way to be together. Luke was a strong man, he knew his strengths and weaknesses. Madison made him rethink what his limits were. He loved her and needed her like his next breath. Madison felt the same way. She was ready to give up her gorgeous house in the Hollywood hills to be with Luke, but she needed some of her basic creature comforts. As hard as it was, she knew Luke couldn’t stay in the city though. They had to figure something out.
The journey we are given is truly an emotional one on so many levels. Both people are pushed past their fears and hopes that the other will catch them. I relished the ending and epilogue! Unforgettable!
This first story of the Misadventures series is truly one for the books! I can’t wait to dive into the next one!!
