Misadventures of a City Girl

Finished January 4
Misadventures of a City Girl by Meredith Wild and Chelle Bliss

This romance novel begins as Madison Atwood's divorce has become final. She's tired of fending off the sympathies (real and nosey) of others, tired of seeing her ex with his new love in the news and on friend's social media, tired of putting off the reporters looking for her side of the story. She looks for a place that will let her get away, spend time by herself with a little R and R and no phones or computers. She picks a place upstate, called Avalon Springs.
When she gets there, she finds there is a little more group activity than she is looking for and instead of attending orientation, she heads off on a hike on one of the trails. She finds a hot spring, the one the spa takes its name from, and gives into temptation, strips, and goes in.
But as it turns darker, she finds she is being watched, and she is at first scared, then annoyed, then intrigued.
The man who came upon her unexpectedly, Luke Dawson, owns the land the spa in on, and lives higher up the mountain, seldom interacting with the public. He's dealing with his own issues, and isn't looking for a relationship, but the unexpected and sexually charged encounter keep returning to his mind.
This is a story of two people, who have chemistry, but live in very different worlds. Madison is a sought-after makeup artist, and her job will keep drawing her back to Hollywood. Luke is not comfortable around groups of people, and likes his privacy.
A light, fun romance with some graphic sex scenes, and a few barriers to overcome. An enjoyable read.
