Heroine: Amber Clark – Director, Good Girl 
Hero: Tony Mazzara – Building Contractor, Bad Boy 
Setting: USA



Amber Clark has been been known as the good girl all her life. But Amber doesn't feel like a good girl when she sees the muscular, sexy bad boy Tony Mazzara walking around the construction site at the community center where she works. The things Amber would like to do with Tony are definitely not good girl thoughts. No, Amber is a bad girl screaming to come out of her shell.

When a tornado threatens to come through their town, Amber and Tony are forced to take shelter into the basement of the community center. Amber, who has been sheltered all her life, is a little nervous to be in the same vicinity with Tony, and it has nothing to do with him being a bad boy. No, Amber is in lust with the man. And when the lights go out, Amber learns that the Italian Stallion is afraid of the dark.

To keep Tony calm, Amber tries to comfort him by talking to him. As they begin to get to know one another, Tony learns just how innocent Amber really is. He then begins to teach her how to misbehave. Amber begins to say things she never thought she would say out loud. These sexy and bold things he persuades Amber to say stokes a fire in Tony he hasn't felt in a long time.

Because of a family tragedy, Tony doesn't think he deserves to be happy. He tries really hard to keep his distance from Amber, to no avail. He is drawn to her like a moth to a flame. With Amber's new found courage and boldness, she is determined to make Tony finish what he started in the basement.

"But you kind of want to do that? What you said?”
"Say it."
“You kind of want to-" Oh, Lord. "To fuck me on the floor?"
She heard something give a soft thunk against the concrete. She thought it might be his skull.
"Yeah, honey, I want to."
"That's hot."
Another soft thunk. "Jesus Christ," he said. "You're not a bunny at all."

What starts out as just dirty talk in a basement, turns into something deeper, passionate. Amber discovers a lot about herself with Tony. And, in turn, Amber helps Tony learn to forgive himself.

Wow, this is one heck of a short story. How to Misbehave is an emotionally charged, hot and steamy romance with a touch of humor and memorable characters. This is a great beginning to Miz Knox's Camelot series. If you’ve never read anything by Ruthie Knox, you are missing out. Two of my favorite contemporary romances I read in 2012 were Ride with Me and About Last Night. I highly recommend both of those books. So, of course I was excited when I was invited to review this fabulous short story. I'm most definitely looking forward to the second book in the series, Along Came Trouble.
