Back to Camelot with Ruthie Knox - Reviews

Let's just start with a shout out to Ruthie Knox. She has a way of capturing your emotions and getting wrapped up into the drama.  I loved the Camelot series and was excited to be given the opportunity to be able to review these two books from NetGalley

Flirting with Disaster (Camelot #3)
by
In the latest eBook original novel in Ruthie Knox’s scorching-hot Camelot series, a no-strings fling looks an awful lot like falling in love—or flirting with disaster.

Fresh out of a fiasco of a marriage, Katie Clark has retreated to her hometown to start over. The new Katie is sophisticated, cavalier, and hell-bent on kicking butt at her job in her brother’s security firm. But on her first assignment—digging up the truth about the stalker threatening a world-famous singer-songwriter—Katie must endure the silent treatment from a stern but sexy partner who doesn’t want her help . . . or her company.

Sean Owens knows that if he opens his mouth around Katie, she’ll instantly remember him as the geeky kid who sat behind her in high school. Silence is golden, but he can’t keep quiet forever, not with Katie stampeding through their investigation. It’s time for Sean to step up and take control of the case, and his decade-old crush. If he can break through Katie’s newfound independence, they just might find they make a perfect team—on the road, on the job, and in bed.

My Review...

Here we have Katie the youngest sibling in the Clark family who has made some bad decisions from the need to be loved and needed.

Now we Sean the boy from her past who refuses to talk to her. Literally.

Sean and Katie are thrown together to help out Judah Pratt but are having trouble because Pratt has a world of secrets which is making their detail more troublesome than helpful.
Once all the secrets start come out it causes Sean and Katie to also deal with their own issues.

With this journey there are new friendships developed and new love blossoming all around.

Sean and Kate's relationship is trying but real and once Sean realizes the possibility of real loss he fights for his prize.


This story is a sweet story between to injured souls who help be each others balms towards becoming whole again.

Making It Last (Camelot #4)
by
RITA finalist Ruthie Knox returns with a brand-new eBook original novella, the finale of her delightfully sexy Camelot series!

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 — where 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 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 only got 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 Review...

It has been awhile for Amber and Tony where we first met them in How to Misbehave (Camelot #1).

It has been ten years since their introduction and a lot has happened since then. Three boys, Amber's dad having a stroke, the death of Tony's mom, Patrick quitting and taking off, Caleb finding a new family, Katie finding love and the economy going south.

Problems always happen but the key is to communicate. Without this there isn't too much left.

For Tony he fears the worst that Amber is slipping away and will leave him while Amber feels like she is abandoned and not needed and that Tony is getting love elsewhere.

They are on their last hope to reconnect to make it work between the two of them.
They reconnect as strangers...
But together they find a way to talk and figure out the future...TOGETHER!!!!
I loved this book.  I felt like it got into the mind of the married couple who stopped communicating and lost their ways. To be able to re-learn how to communicate and re-connect is a journey and for Amber and Tony it was worth it!

4.5 Emotional Thumbs up!
