4 Stars: Review of TELL ME A STORY by Tamara Lush

See full issue for 2017 11-13

The Rundown

Aspiring writer and book nerd meets billionaire mogul. A good book always adds it’s touch from the first chapter, and a mention of a Story Brothel got me hooked.

The novel started off smooth with the words, How much?” I mean who wouldn’t get curious as to how this would turn out? It then glided perfectly through the middle as we got to know both Caleb and Emma, a little bit about their backgrounds, and the level of tension that grew since they first met.


Other characters were introduced early on which added a little more sparkle to the book, but I would love to read more about them in little snippets throughout the novel. Especially Sarah and Laura, I see a little spin off that could happen over there. Sarah the best friend we saw when Emma needed a pick me up from her little fall, but Laura, we only saw her just once in the novel despite that she was mentioned a few times as “Caleb’s sister.”


The entire novel was an engrossing read for me, I literally couldn’t put it down. So when I got to the end, I couldn’t believe for a second that that was it. One of the points that saddened me about this novel was the ending. It ended too quickly for the pace it was going at that it left my jaw hanging.


Tell Me a Story is a vivid, sexy, page-turner. Lush had put her characters into place with the book’s pace and length. I enjoyed reading through the evolvement of both Emma and Caleb, especially the tension that built up from their very first meeting. The two play and tease like teenagers until, of course, something happens that puts their relationship; if we can even call it that, into a difficult ditch.

The Recommendation

A definite read to those who are longing for something hot and sexy enjoys a little bit of drama but not too much, and something short and spicy
