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?

Meredith Wild has done it yet again! I’ve never been disappointed with any of Meredith Wild’s books and this one definitely lived up to the hype. It was my first read by Chelle Bliss but I have a feeling it won’t be my last.
Misadventures of a City Girl is the first of many Misadventures stories. Each hot, each sexy, each written by different authors. Perfect series and the best part (for me anyway) they are all stand alones. Score!
Misadventures of a City Girl follow along with Luke (mountain man) and Madison (city girl) and their misadventure of combining their lives together. As anyone can imagine Madison loves living in the city until she divorces her high profile ex and decides an escape is in order. She retreats to the mountains where she meets Luke after a slightly awkward first encounter that quickly sparks up the page with how much heat is between these two. Luke loves his isolation in the mountains but Madison loves her city life. So how do they compromise and make it work or do they just say it was a good time had and move on?
The story moves quickly and isn’t too complex which is what I like especially in a novella. This is a perfect weekend book or even a week night after work book. I work a full time job, I have a husband, two teenagers, and I’m studying for my real estate license but I was still able to read this wonderfully written story.
I can’t sing their praises enough! Meredith Wild and Chelle Bliss hit a home run with this first novella and I’m sure the rest of the stories will be just as great! I look forward to reading the rest!
Thanks for reading!
