Cam is having a hard time adjusting to life outside of the Marines, especially in light of the embarrassing reason for his discharge – Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and severe allergic reactions to all things citrus.  Now, back in San Francisco, his PTSD has left him at the mercy of his mother – the renowned owner of the brothel Tuesday’s Child.  While unwillingly working for his mother “recruiting” Cam comes across Joshua, a down on his luck doctoral student, who sees right through Cam’s approach and turns him down flat.  However, when Cam comes across Joshua hooking several weeks later everything is different – but will Joshua give Cam a chance?

Tart and Soul is a one of the most unlikely romances I’ve had the pleasure of reading in a long time.  Living in a brothel, with a mother that doesn’t respect sexual boundaries between family members and unwillingly turning tricks for his own mother makes Cam an intriguing character that will charm you despite the unlikely setting.  Joshua is more of a secondary character to Cam’s actions but he serves to provide a humorous foil to Cam’s seriousness and to bring a little light into his life.  From start to finish Cam and Joshua will capture your attention and then your heart as they clumsily make their way to a life together.  Get yourself Tart and Soul the next time you are in the mood for an unusual but charming read!
