Personal Assets

Personal Assets is the debut novel from Kelsey Browning. The publisher is Carina Press and the release date was August 25, 2013. From the Carina Press website.~

Sex therapist Allie Shelby has the professional credentials, but she could use a bit more practical experience. Finding the right man to bring out her inner bad girl is tough in a population-challenged Texas town. So when sinfully sexy Cameron Wright rolls back into Shelbyville, Allie wastes no time inviting him to join her in some hands-on research.

Cameron has come home to fulfill his dream of restoring classic cars. Back in high school, he knew the town princess, Allie Shelby, was way out of his league. Today he has even less in common with Allie, so he's shocked as hell when she propositions him. Still, he's only human, so he accepts her offer—and with each encounter, she shows him another, wilder side. Before long, he's thinking about more than just sex.

But while her personal life heats up, Allie's business is about to crash and burn. And she has to convince Cameron that she's one princess who's not looking for a prince to ride to her rescue

Personal Assets is the first book in the Texas Nights series by Kelsey Browning. I was lucky enough to be approved for a review copy from NetGalley thanks to the publisher.

I loved both Allie and Cameron from the moment they appeared on the page. The chemistry between them was incredible from the beginning, and only got hotter the more time they spent together. Allie is a sex therapist who hasn't had any practical experience in a while. When the ladies she meets with challenge her to step up and take a chance, Cameron is the only man that comes to mind. Cameron and Allie grew up on different sides of the tracks, so to speak. Cameron has been working since he was 15 to make sure his mom and brother had a good life. Allie grew up with pretty much all the comforts available. Big difference, Cameron had the love of his mom and brother and Allie never really felt like she has had the love of a parent after her mom passed away.

Allie had borrowed money from her dad’s bank to set up both her store Personal Assets and her best friend’s Roxanne’s lingerie store Red Light. Her dad is very unhappy with her choice in vocation and wants nothing more than to close down both her store and Roxanne’s. He calls in her loan and it is up to Allie to figure out a way to keep things going. I’ll admit Cameron messed up a little while dealing with Allie at this point, but his brother Jamie totally steps up to help Allie out and Cameron in the process. I have to say I fell a little bit in love with Jamie in this book and can’t wait for his story.

I fell in love with Allie and Cameron as a couple the more time they spent together. Not that everything was smooth sailing between them, but there was never a lack of emotion as I read this story. I loved Personal Assets so much. This book is laugh out loud funny at times. Add in the sinfully sexy moments between Cameron and Allie, and this book is a winner all around.
