  • One to enjoy!

    4,5 stars. Natural Impulse is the second book in a trilogy, situated at a resort for naturists called Au Naturel. This one is about Mara and Oliver (Ollie). A travel agency booked Mara’s holiday for her. Just some time to enjoy nature, watch the birds. She literally faints when she notices all the naked people and Ollie is the one to catch her. It’s a hilarious beginning of a romance between two people clearly meant for each other, although from different worlds. As always I really enjoyed the story and it’s characters (some familiar, others brand new). Loved the ending and the epilogue and can’t wait for the next part. I received a complimentary copy of this book and this is my voluntary and honest opinion.

  • Shedding Her Hangups

    Mara Severins, a city girl through-and-through, was on her way to what she thought was a blissful two-week vacation at a "naturist" birdwatching retreat where she could relax and break out of her doldrums. Au Naturel Naturist Resort even sounded relaxing and blissful, a place where – the travel agent assured her – people go to enjoy nature, hike, birdwatch, and learn about wildlife. It didn’t explain, though, why the cab driver leered at her and no one else would drive her out here! Oliver Jackson (“Ollie”) was a computer systems engineer and now the assistant manager of Au Naturel Naturist Resort. Being a naturist, or nudist, he loves his job here. He can’t stop staring at Mara. When the cab driver opens the trunk so he can get her luggage, his eyes widen at the 4 suitcases of clothes and 2 small ones for makeup and hair stuff. Considering the resort’s “purpose”, 4 suitcases seemed a bit much. While he started the multiple trips to deliver all her suitcases to the room, he sent her ahead to the dining hall to join the other guests. Her eyes closed to inhale the wonderful aroma – and when she opened them in the doorway, everyone was NAKED, and she screamed! Why would birdwatchers eat in the nude???? Worse yet, Oliver seemed so calm about it all! He couldn’t understand her alarm and just repeated that was the point of the naturist resort, and yes, that did explain it (when she kept asking him to explain)! And when he explained she was at a nudist resort, she fainted in his arms! Oliver figured she might be better off staying at the guest room in the separate building where the owners lived. They were both gone for now and he was using their room, but the guest room was available and no one else stayed there. He got her settled, but she expressed relief that at least HE was not a nudist! Where did she get that idea? He only dressed when he met newcomers to the resort. Having forgotten the other suitcases back at the main resort, he went to get them. She found she could not unzip her new dress, so asked for his help. He tried to rush out once he had it halfway unzipped, but she grabbed him and kissed him. He pushed her away, telling her he wanted to kiss her, but would not take advantage when she was upset over the naturist situation. She was so embarrassed at her actions. He was such a good guy. When he came back, he found her moaning in the kitchen while eating a red velvet cupcake. His voice sounded strange, though, deeper, when he talked to her. Was he okay? When he said he liked her pink toenails, his voice got even deeper and huskier! Seeing the look on his face, she had a sudden thought he wanted her – but no, he had pushed her away so that couldn’t be it. He quickly turned and left, so she continued eating her third red velvet cupcake. This book continues to keep the laughs coming in a good way. An older guest, Ruth, is really fantastic and eager to see Ollie help the uptight city girl relax. Ollie's best friend, Damian, decides to surprise him, and he’s quite the ladies man and flirt. Then the unexpected arrival of Mara's ex, Nico, and her parents give us even more chuckles! Poor Mara! But Ollie and Mara continue to fall more and more for each other, and it’s really adorable. With all of the distractions, it’s difficult to imagine deepening their relationship, but they do make it work. Is there a HEA waiting for them? And will Mara find out her sweetie is also a naturist who would love to see her get more comfortable in her own skin! Grab your copy of this fun book and get back to nature!

  • Loved this rom-com's natural humor!

    Mara books a birdwatching vacation through her travel agent at a remote resort, only to find out that the "naturist" in the Au Naturel Naturist Resort's name is a euphemism for "nudist." Cue all the shrieking and embarrassing gaffes as she comes to terms with her predicament. Her hands-on guide is Ollie, the sweetheart resort guest from the first book who stepped up to help manage the resort. There's a full cast of hilarity in this book, including the return of the Kitten Brigade, more helpful tips from Ruth and Sly, the unexpected arrivals of both Ollie's best friend, Damian, and Mara's ex, Nico, along with Mara's parents who are still trying to figure out how to let Mara grow up. Throughout it all, Mara and Ollie find their instant chemistry turning into something much more serious, if only they can navigate all the assorted obstacles in their path. I was impressed with the body positivity throughout. The HEA was delightful, especially since we were treated to Eve and Val's wedding. As with the first book, this one ends with setting up the two main characters for the next book, and I'm looking forward to reading it. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

  • Her nudist geek

    I volunteered to read this ARC for an honest review. I enjoyed this story about Mara and Oliver. Oliver works at Au Naturel Naturist Resort as assistant manager. Mara is headed there for a break, but doesn't realize it's a nudist resort. When she finds herself surrounded by nude people she freaks and faints, Oliver catches her. They have a spark. But when her ex husband shows up things her complicated, then Oliver's ex, Heidi comes with the kitten brigade, making it even more insane. Great beginnings of a true HEA. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    This is an amazing story. I couldn’t put it down. I couldn’t wait to see what happened next for the couple. The characters are engaging and well developed. The storyline caught my attention from the start. I received a copy for my honest and voluntary review
