Book: Uncovering Camila

Author: Vivian Winslow

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Camila Cohen is a highly ambitious and driven third-year NYU law student who works as a part-time bartender to help pay her way through school. She prefers no-strings attached relationships, afraid that anything serious could get in the way of her goals.

But when chef Eliseo Perez ditches her for a job in Miami, she realizes even a casual arrangement can leave you feeling burned. Just as Camilas close to accepting a position at the high-powered law firm of Sullivan & Moore (more appropriately known by its initials, S & M), her uncle Arthur, the head of the Cohen Real Estate dynasty, makes a proposal that compels Camila to question the career path shed always assumed would be right for her.

As she attempts to balance her busy final year of law school with her bartending job, what should have been a random Tinder date for a hot hook-up leads to something unexpected. Meeting the incredibly brilliant and handsome Marshall James forces Camila to face her greatest fears and realize that creating a life for herself means making decisions that could potentially hurt the ones she loves.

ARC received for an honest review

It has been a while since I read the Wildflowers series, and it was great to get back into this series.

Camila Cohen has been burned by men and has decided that she is no longer going to date. Driven by schooling and her career, it is enough for her. 

Until a blind date completely blindsides her.

I adored Marshall right from the get go.  There was just something about him on that first "date" that had me rooting for him.

Through all their trials and tribulations, I could feel the connection between them.  There was a spark, a pull that could not be denied.

And then there were the sexy times... wow were they hot!

The thing that I really liked about Uncovering Camila, more than the earlier books in the series was that this story wasn't just based on the sex.  Whereas the other books were based on sex then forming a relationship, C.C and Marshall started forming a relationship from their first meeting, and it wasn't all about the sex.

And this, among other things, makes this my favourite book in the series.

Uncovering Camila took me from emotional highs to emotional lows, all the while hoping, cheering for Camila and Marshall to make it.

But to find out if they do, you will have to read for yourself.

I am now looking forward to the next in this series.

Uncovering Camila Sexcerpt

Camila turns her body to face Marshall. Lifting her hand, she runs a finger down the side of his face. He catches her hand and trails kisses around her palm. From there he runs his tongue up her index finger and sucks. He continues to suck on her fingers relentlessly, each one stirring her craving for sex even more than the last. She smiles to herself. This dare will be far easier than I thought.

She sits astride Marshall on the bench, careful not to tear her dress. You sure about this? He asks.

Why do you ask? Camila rubs his cock from outside his trousers. You want to hear me say that I want to be with you?

Yeah, I do, he replies before crushing his lips against Camilas. Like last time, this kiss blows her away with its intensity, as he alternates between tender caresses and biting her bottom lip. Unlike last time, theres an undercurrent of desperation behind it because they both know the weekend will end and their City lives will resume, where neither one will be able to touch the other. Somehow that prospect of it ending before it even begins drives them further into the moment, passion superseding all reason and doubt.

Camila doesnt speak right away. She wants her kisses to speak her desire for her. For her tongue to find his and to stroke it the way he stroked her pussy that morning in her apartment. She brings her hands to his face, gripping him with the intensity of a lover whos saying both hello and good-bye. Its truly liberating to own this level of freedom with someone knowing that the present is all they have. She can feel his erection grow and press against her cunt, growing slicker with every kiss and lick against her lips. Camila draws his left hand under her dress so he can feel her desire.

Marshall moans into the next kiss, taking her deeper as he buries two fingers inside of Camila. She cries out silently, only a jagged breath shattering the stillness around them. Time has literally ceased to exist in this moment between the two lovers as they continue to climb toward their mutual pleasure. Camila lowers the zipper of his pants, freeing his cock. Marshall hisses as she begins to stroke him.

What he wouldnt give to feel himself inside her warm mouth right now. He groans
as he bites down on Camilas lips, remembering how it felt when she took him deep
inside her. He starts to penetrate Camila faster. He wants to fuck her this way and so
many others right here on this bench. How perfect and poetic to have someone like
Camila on the Baron estate where hed lost his virginity to Dahlia, the eldest of the
twin daughters, all those years ago in the pool house. To bring such light to a place
that represents so many memories from his past fills him with such a sense of peace he doesnt want it to end.

Marshall takes out his fingers and licks them before putting them in Camilas  mouth. She sucks on them hard. The idea that these fingers were just inside her pussy drives her further into her lust. She lowers herself over his cock, prepared for how deep he would go and how far it would stretch her. This time her eyes are open, watching the look of pleasure on his face as she takes him fully.

His moan is louder than it should be, but neither of them cares. She rides him slowly this time, with greater purpose than before. Each time, she wants to feel him deep inside her, and he wants to savor it too. Marshall pulls Camila tight to him, burying his groans into her mouth, his kisses conveying a warmth and gratitude for tonight, for that morning in her apartment, and for feeling so fucking good at this moment.

He buries his face in her breasts as he continues to thrust into her. Her cries match his. Both are so close to coming, but neither of them is ready to. The reality after the fact will hit them both, and they want to push it away as long as they can.

Marshall wraps his arms around her tighter, unable to edge any longer. Im going to
come, he whispers.

Camila nods as she rides him harder, lifting herself off, and slamming down so she feels it in her G-spot. She draws a deep breath, finally reaching that deep abyss as Marshall stops thrusting and lets himself go.
