Blurb: With her stiff posture, black-rimmed glasses and chestnut waves in a tight bun, Cameron Winslow’s downstairs neighbor, Margaret Story, has long been the unaware star of his filthiest dirty-librarian fantasies. But with a floundering business eating up all his time, Cam doesn’t have the open road he’d need to date a lady like Margaret.
Margaret, who grew up down the road from Cameron, has always thought of him as a cross between a bully and a tease, as likely to pull her braids as pull her leg. But he’s grown up to be a smokin’ hot businessman, and Margaret can’t help daydreaming about what it would feel like to be under, um, with someone like him.
When hot-headed Cameron and buttoned-up Margaret start using the same shady contractor for apartment renovations, Margaret may find herself in some unexpected trouble, which forces long-hidden feelings to come out of hiding…and might just make way for two unlikely fantasies to finally come true.
Review: I’m slowly coming to realize how much I love a dirty talker…and Cameron Winslow is fantastic! He’s deep, introspective, smart and intuitive–and also crazy hot attractive. Plus, he’s amazingly romantic for the right girl, who happens to be Margaret Story. There are so many great things going on in this deeply romantic, sweetly moving book about childhood friends turning into lovers that I can’t wait for everyone to read it so we can discuss! I think Cameron may just be my favorite Blueberry Lane man ever.
Margaret doesn’t know why Cameron Winslow hates her. He has always picked on her–even when they were kids! And now that they’re adults, he uses every opportunity he has to glare at her–and since they’re living in the same building now, that’s almost daily. Ugh. It’s not enough that she’s having to deal with her jerk of a dad who’s never happy with the job she does simply because she’s a woman. It’s enough to make her want to run off to her little vineyard in the countryside and hide there, all cozy and warm, forever.
Cameron’s got a life plan and right now, it doesn’t include a relationship. Ever since his brother Christopher decided to run for office and left him with the entire business, he’s been up to his neck in work. Even though he’s had deep feelings for Margaret Story since they were kids, he’s not going to make a move on her until he’s got the time to do it for real.
But as we all know, sometimes love just doesn’t wait for the right time.
I just loved the push/pull of emotions in this book. Cameron is moody and broody, and I was on tenterhooks just waiting to see when he’d burst into flames over his hidden feelings for Meggie. He’s a hot, possessive alpha under all that New England cool! Margaret’s sweet nature, her love for her vineyard, the luscious, cozy nest she’d created for herself in the little cabin…all these things spoke to me. I loved waiting to see when the inevitable click would happen and she’d realize that he really actually “liked” her! It was delicious and so empowering for her.
The two places–the tony apartment building and then the simple vineyard cabin–also seemed to mirror the two sides of the main characters. The more sophisticated, “expected” sides and then the fresh, open sides they wanted to be. Cameron and Margaret were both so much happier at the vineyard and I love the fact that she was able to bring that to him. Throw in the mysterious FedEx packages and the contractors from H$ll and you’ve got a sexy, funny and emotional romance with a hint of suspense that’s sure to make you smile. I loved it and it’s my favorite so far! Go Team Cameron!
