Making It Last - A Novella (Camelot Series)

Making It Last - A Novella (Camelot Series) by Ruthie Knox

$0.99 Amazon

In a brand-new eBook original novella, RITA finalist and USA Today bestselling author Ruthie Knox takes her spectacular Camelot series to new heights with a tale of desire reinvented.

A hotel bar. A sexy stranger. A night of passion. There’s a part of Amber Mazzara that wants those things, wants to have a moment—just one—when life isn’t a complicated tangle of house and husband and kids and careers. Then, after a long, exhausting “vacation” with her family, her husband surprises her with a gift: a few days on the beach . . . alone. 

Only she won’t be alone for long, because a handsome man just bought her a drink. He’s cool, he’s confident, and he wants to take Amber to bed and keep her there for days. Lucky for them both, he’s her husband. He’s got only a few days in Jamaica to make her wildest desires come true, but if he can pull it off, there’s reason to believe that this fantasy can last a lifetime.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I really loved Along Came Trouble and was excited to read another Camelot story. But, I didn't enjoy this one. Amber whines and feels sorry for her self through the whole book. Her husband who works hard to give her a good life is left feeling guilty about it. Yes, the book sends a well needed message about communication and working out problems in a marriage. But, it's quite boring. I wasn't enthralled at all. I wish it had been more like the other Camelot books. Those were fantastic and I couldn't put them down. This was a disappointment.

An accomplished lawyer and driven single mother, Ellen Callahan isn’t looking for any help. She’s doing just fine on her own. So Ellen’s more than a little peeved when her brother, an international pop star, hires a security guard to protect her from a prying press that will stop at nothing to dig up dirt on him. But when the tanned and toned Caleb Clark shows up at her door, Ellen might just have to plead the fifth.

Back home after a deployment in Iraq and looking for work as a civilian, Caleb signs on as Ellen’s bodyguard. After combat in the hot desert sun, this job should be a breeze. But guarding the willful beauty is harder than he imagined—and Caleb can’t resist the temptation to mix business with pleasure. With their desires growing more undeniable by the day, Ellen and Caleb give in to an evening of steamy passion. But will they ever be able to share more than just a one-night stand?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a story! This book had some drama, love and lots of hotness. I really enjoyed the journey that Ellen and Caleb take you on. I sort of feel the whole "job" he had to do was anti-climatic. A little something to that would have made this a five star story. For the most part, it's predictable. Most romances are. But all in all, it's a great romance. The dynamics of the Clark family and the Callahan family, and how they grow throughout the story is just a gripping tale. I couldn't put this down.
