Publisher's Summary

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?

He Has Met His Match

I couldn't wait to get off work to read this highly anticipated book so I had to get the audible book to get a jump on it. I loved how the story took off from the first sentence. Maddison was enthralled with Luke from the first time she saw him. Luke wasn't to far behind her. The journey these two took to be together was very well written. The narrator was fantastic. Definately an audiobook I will listen to again.....okay maybe 10 more times!!

Ugh!

Could not get past the first 3 chapters. Never heard "pussy" and "cock" used so many times in such a short span of pages. Judging from other reviews, this continues on throughout the remainder of the book. This is not literature,this is smut. I love a good romance novel as much as anyone, but this ain't it!

Overdone.

The storyline or lack there of left much to be desired. A bit overdramatic and overdone.

No....sorry

I tried. I did listen to the whole story. I didn’t care for it. To much forced at you so fast. Barely know the characters before they are naked and having sex. I still don’t really know them. Trying too hard to be sexy and it was just kind of perverse.

Insta-Love

2.5 Stars

Madison Atwood is recently divorced from her childhood sweetheart/movie star ex-husband, who cheated on her. Looking to get some perspective and spend some time with herself, she travels to northern California to the Avalon Spa.

A couple of mishaps put her in the path of veteran recluse, Luke Dawson. Luke has been on the mountain since his last tour of duty. He went to stay in the mountains on the acres left to him by family.

Once Madison and Luke meet, they realized their lives are very different, but will do anything to compromise in order to be together.

This was a quick insta-love story. There were several things that bothered me. Firstly Madison's habit of not only going to places she didn't know in the mountains by herself, but just walking into someone's cabin/home without know who it belonged to. Maybe I was raised to be more cautious, but this woman drove me nuts. Even walking into the woods naked in order to pee. What is wrong with her?

Anyway... I had high hopes for this series, but this book really wasn't for me. I will try to read/listen to a few others, hoping the stories improve. I didn't love the narrators. Could have been the book itself, but something about them bugged me.

Lance has a great voice, and having Brock to think of while listening helps imagry. i wish there was a sequel to this story though.

Eh....

There was so much hype for this book I was giddy to find it available on Audio. The story is fine, but lacking. Lots of steamy scenes but the story could have been so much better.

My Thoughts on Misadventures of a City Girl

The first word that comes to mind when I think of this book is Hot! This book was HOT! The chemistry between the two main characters was off the charts and definitely made for a highly entertaining experience. But what started off as just a really steamy book for me grew into something really good. The more I read/listened the more I enjoyed the story. The building of the relationship between Luke and Madison. The issues they had to overcome. It all just combined to make something really good.

The narrators for these books aren't ones I'm very familiar with but I liked their performances overall. I certainly wouldn't mind hearing either of them again and getting a better feel.

I look forward to checking out more books in this misadventures series and hope they're as good as this one turned out to be.

Very predictable.

finished it but got very bored on how predictable it was.
struggled with the annoying narrative of male and female doing each other's voices.

Promising premise but no story

Dreadful! Just dreadful.. ugh. Narrators are great but from the off storyline is very thin, if practically non existent. Girl is an actor, in the public eye, has been scorned by her ex so jets off to yoga retreat to regroup. Then throws herself at some random hot dude, log cutting in the forest near by retreat. Basically other than sex nothing else happens after that. Promising premise but story has no depth and doesn't deliver for me.

Amazing!

Brilliant book finished within 24 hours!! I love the fact there is a male voice for Luke and a damage voice for Maddie in the chapters depending on who thinking etc, but when it's Maddie's turn instead of having the male voice actor speak for Luke it's the female in a deeper tone and the same the other way round.

Unadulterated trash

Absolutely terrible book. No story, no character definition, an inordinate amount of boring predictable cliched sex scenes not forgetting the expected smutty wording. Not sure how this got published unless publisher believes the literary world consists of sex starved housewives who can’t string more than a few words together. You’re very wrong on that score, most of us enjoy a good read with great storylines, characters we can relate to and empathize with....this has zeroes on all counts.
