Review: How to Misbehave by Ruthie Knox

As program director for the Camelot Community Center, Amber Clark knows how to keep her cool.  That is, until a sudden tornado warning forces her to take shelter in a darkened basement with a hunk of man whose sex appeal green lights her every fantasy.  With a voice that would melt chocolate, he asks her if she is okay.  Now she's hot all over and wondering: How does a girl make a move?

Building contractor Tony Mazzara was just looking to escape nature's fury.  Instead, he finds himself all tangled up with lovely Amber.  Sweet and sexy, she's ready to unleash her wild side.  Their mutual desire reaches a fever pitch and creates a storm of its own--unexpected, powerful, and unforgettable.  But is it bigger than Tony can handle?  Can he let go of painful memories and let the force of this remarkable woman show him a future he never dreamed existed?

How to Misbehave is an introduction to Ruthie Knox’s Camelot series.  I was a little disappointed to discover that the Camelot series wasn’t about Tony Mazzara and the rest of his siblings, but about Amber Clark and her siblings, Caleb and Katie.  I’m pretty sure an argument can be made for the Mazzara’s having their own books.

Amber Clark is a twenty-four year old Program Director for the Camelot Community Center.  She’s VERY inexperienced and has an interest in Tony Mazzara, only she thinks his name is Patrick Mazzara.  Tony is almost thirty and is use to people getting him confused with Patrick, since they are both close in age and both known to be trouble.

The story starts out with a tornado siren going off and takes place in July of 1999.  Why 1999 instead of present day, I have no idea.  But at least for this story, I don’t think it matters. Amber and Tony are the only two people left in the center and are forced to ride out the tornado in the basement.  While waiting for the all clear, Amber and Tony use this time together to get to know each other.

Amber lets Tony know that she’s attracted to him, but Tony tries to fight his attraction to her.  Tony knows how he is and he doesn’t want to hurt her.  Eventually, Tony, the Italian Stallion, teaches Amber, the little bunny, how to misbehave in more ways than one.  Honestly, I don’t think I will ever think about pouring rain and an oak tree the same way anymore.

I love the way Tony and Amber are able to grow in such a short time frame.  I am definitely looking forward to more of them.

How to Misbehave is H-O-T, so be prepared.  Once you start reading this book, you are not going to want to put it down.
