Emma and Caleb spend nearly all their free time enjoying each other sensually, but she wonders how permanent their relationship will be.
Emma's beloved Orlando bookstore is saved, thanks to Caleb's quick actions. She's caught up in a dizzying whirl of work and play, between her business, his palatial condo and the romantic getaways her handsome real estate mogul plans. But her 35th birthday brings not only sweet gifts, but the bitter realization that if she's going to have a family, it has to be now. She wants forever, but what about Caleb?
Caleb is in love for the first time in his life, and he can't do enough for his raven-haired temptress. He's happy living in the now, showering her with gifts to make up for her childhood, spent in poverty. But when Emma brings up the future, it becomes clear that she's not the only one with a past that can rear up and threaten their happiness. Despite all the daring exploration he persuades her into, marriage may just be his hard limit. Will he find a way past his darkest fears?
Don't miss Tell Me a Lie: Episode Three of The Story Series. Release date: August 4, 2016
Tell Me a Desire picks up right after the ending of the first book, the characters are still pretty much all over each other. Their desire for one another hasn't diminished, but new issues start to evolve around them as they began to question their future together.
After Emma saves her bookstore things start to go well for her, but after meeting with her doctor one day she is given a dose of reality when she is told that she is not getting any younger and if she wants to have a baby she needs to have one soon. This makes her question the things that she wants and what Caleb might want as well. Soon she has to decide whether his plans will ever coincide with hers. On the other hand there is Caleb, for the first time he has been able to connect with someone that he truly loves. Yet having it all is never enough, it doesn't matter what he can give her with his money, because at the end of the day she'll want a future that he is not ready for. Despite their growing chemistry, there are things that they still need to resolve and the getting over the past might just be harder than he thought.
I very much liked the chemistry between the characters, it keeps evolving, yet they just aren't ready to fully commit to a future together. The author did a good job describing Caleb's past and what the characters have to overcome in order to fully have it all. It was an enjoyable read, I can't wait to read the next book in the series, it's going to be good. I would highly recommend checking out the first book, you will not regret it. :)
