Overview


Sex therapist Allie Shelby has the professional credentials, but she could use a bit more practical experience. Finding the right man to bring out her inner bad girl is tough in a population-challenged Texas town. So when sinfully sexy Cameron Wright rolls back into Shelbyville, Allie wastes no time inviting him to join her in some hands-on research.

Cameron has come home to fulfill his dream of restoring classic cars. Back in high school, he knew the town princess, Allie Shelby, was way out of his league. Today he has even less in common with Allie, so he's shocked as hell when she propositions him. Still, he's only human, so he accepts her offer—and with each encounter, she shows him another, wilder side. Before long, he's thinking about more than just sex.

But while her personal life heats up, Allie's business is about to crash and burn. And she has to convince Cameron that she's one princess who's not looking for a prince to ride to her rescue.

Editorial Reviews

USA Today bestselling author of Flirting with Disaster - Ruthie Knox
"A hot man, a headstrong woman, and sizzling chemistry set against a homey Texas backdrop—Browning's contemporary debut has all the assets that count!"
Library Journal
Allie Shelby recently returned to her small Texas hometown to establish her sex therapy and counseling practice. When Allie challenges her therapy group to create a project to push them outside of their sexual comfort zone, the group challenges Allie to do the same. Enter hunky former bad boy Cameron Wright, who has just moved back to town to open an auto repair and body shop. Cameron has no idea that he has been targeted by Allie as an essential part of her project to uncover her wild side. Years ago, Allie was out of his league, and he didn’t figure anything had changed. Now suddenly Allie turns up at his garage and propositions him for an all sex, no emotions relationship. Cameron had hoped to find someone to settle down with, but in the meantime who could refuse an offer like that? As Allie and Cameron start to think there could be more to this “no strings attached” arrangement, business, family, and the past threaten to come between them.

Verdict Bright, smart, funny, and engaging, Allie is a woman who knows what she wants and isn’t going to settle for anything less. Cameron is what she wants, if she can bring him around to her way of thinking. Browning’s “Texas Nights” series if off to a great start!—Lisa Jordan, Gardner Neighborhood Lib., Johnson Cty. Lib., KS

    Captivating, hot, and hilarious.  The issues Allie and Cameron face are real and serious but Kelsey Browning has such a delightful way of slipping in those relate-able moments and some that I could probably never even dream of, that she creates a book that is charming as well as sensuously romantic.

    Sweet and sexy, fun and full of sass and wit, Personal Assets was hands down a very fun romance to read. I'm only sorry I let it sit on my e-reader for so long.



    If you love a good small-town romance, but want something a little different, pick up this book. After all, the heroine doesn't own your typical small business . . . she's a sex therapist. And the hero is very hunky and sweet, not to mention a hard-worker, dedicated to helping his mother and brother out. What's not to love about that? I laughed, I smiled, and I had to break out a fan for the smexy scenes. Win-win!




    I will definitely be picking up more books by Kelsey Browning in the future, as I really like her sassy writing. Plus, I'm curious to see how some of the other characters' stories turn out.




    4 STARS!

    Personal Assets was a delightful surprise. I love small town novels and Ms. Browning delivered a novel full of small town quirks. Fans of Victoria Dahl, Marina Adair and Juliana Stone will enjoy this novel.

    Cameron has come back home to a small town in Texas to pursue his dream of owning his own Classic Car Restoration business. He has been gone for some time and the changes in his hometown will surprise him. Allie is the biggest shock. Everything about her is not what he expected. She is not the same rich, snooty girl he used to know. Where they avoided each other at all cost in high school, it’s quite the opposite now. And even a bigger shock is Allie’s job…and the proposition she has to offer him.

    I love Cameron. He is your typical small town man who holds strong to his hometown values. His reaction to the new “unconventional” events in his life almost gave him a heart attack. Allie and his mom are women of the Twenty-First Century and this is something he just cannot accept. Don’t get me wrong he’s not a Misogynist by the least. But he’s very old fashioned and has a heart of a “knight in shining armor”. I thought he was sweet and endearing. Fortunately, Allie is a very strong willed woman and she will bring him to his knees and force to the new age. Cameron and Allie were pretty hot together. Ms. Browning did good pairing them up.

    The secondary characters were well portrayed. Cameron’s mom, in particular, is my favorite. After losing being single for some time, she is finally giving love a second chance. Of course, Cameron will not let that go that easy. I was really awed by his protectiveness over his mom. But how she handles Cameron about her personal relations was a sight to see. Her love story made a great addition to this novel indeed.

    I absolutely, positively, LOVED Personal Assets. The story was a wonderful blend of romance and humor. It felt incredibly real to me. Shelbyville felt like the small town I live in. Allie and Cameron were amazing together. Allie is sweet and sassy all rolled into one. Cameron is passionate and hard-working. This is the perfect contemporary romance! I even loved the 'side' story of Charlie and Em. As I realized I was getting closer and closer to the end of the book, I wanted time to slow down so that I didn't have to leave this charming world Kelsey Browning has created. I can't wait to see what Kelsey comes up with next!

    I loved this book, and did not want to quit reading until I had reached the end. Cameron Wright has moved back home to Shelbyville to open a business of restoring old cars. He is sexy, sometimes grumpy, and always adorable. Allie Shelby, happens to be a sex therapist in the same town. She is independent, sassy, and headstrong. When Cameron and Allie, get together, sparks fly and not always in a sexual way. Kelsey Browning did a wonderful job writing this book, it has a great plot, steamy sex scenes and some humor thrown in. Hopefully, there will be more books, that will include the secondary characters of Roxanne, Eden, Jamie, and Beck. Loved them all. I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves romance, sex, and humor. Kelsey Browning did a fantastic job on her debut novel!!

    Wonderful Book!!

    I loved this book and can’t believe that this is the author’s debut novel, it was amazing. I love Allie and the fact that she is a strong and independent female. I love Cameron who fixes classic cars he is a man after my own heart because I am a woman who loves classic cars. I love how Cameron wants to help Allie but she is too headstrong to let him. This is a very sexy and steamy read and will keep you reading all night long. I couldn't read this book fast enough and hated to put it down. I fell in love with all of the characters and felt myself rooting for them all. If you love a good romance with some steamy romance then this book is for you. I can’t wait to read more books from this series and from this author!

    Personal Assets is an engaging smalltown romance that will alternately tug at your heartstrings and make you laugh out loud. The interactions between Allie and Cameron are hot, although they also left me wishing I could bop each of them in the head from time to time. The side romance and growth of Cameron's mom, Emmaline, was a bright touch and really made the book work for me. I'm looking forward to reading Jamie, Beck, Roxanne and Eden's stories as the series continues.

    This is the debut novel for Kelsey Browning, and I have to say that I can't wait to read more from her.  Not only was this novel sizzling hot, but there was also plenty of laugh-out-loud moments with hilarious quotes you will just have to share.  Definitely a must-read!

    You are all in for a treat. Debut author Kelsey Browning brings

    You are all in for a treat. Debut author Kelsey Browning brings us a great new contemporary romance that will have you fanning yourself and laughing at the same time. If you like Jill Shalvis and Shannon Stacey you will enjoy Kelsey Browning's new release, Personal Assets. Kelsey writes witty banter and hot romance in a small town community that will gossip about its people but also support them. Kelsey brings her own level of sass to the story which makes for a very entertaining read. The writing is smooth, the plot is original and the characters are well developed.

    Cameron and Allie are an unlikely pair. Cameron grew up in Shelbyville but has lived away for awhile. He comes back to town to start up his business and runs into the town princess, Allie, who he learns is running a sex therapy business. While Cameron really wants nothing to do with the princess, Allie is looking for a bad boy to play with. Take two very independent people with their own preconceived ideas about one another and you have an entertaining story.

    Kelsey does a great job of weaving several plot lines together in Personal Assets and that really made it about more than just the main characters. She does a fantastic job of setting up the town and building the foundation for future books in the series.

    The romance between Cameron and Allie was not what I expected (in a good way). You always have an idea in your head when you start reading a book of how you think it will go, but Kelsey keeps you guessing and is so fun to experience along with the characters. The intimate scenes were hot, well written and fit the characters and plot nicely. Some of them were down right funny.

    Cameron learns that Allie isn't just the princess he remembers growing up. She is a woman who is trying to make it on her own and without the interference of her Father who does not approve of her career path. Cameron has his hands full with his Mother who clearly is living a life he is surprised about.

    You experience a lot of emotions while reading this book, which makes it such a well rounded story. If you are looking for a small-town Texas romance full of sexy, sassy characters who learn heartwarming lessons about family and community I highly recommend Personal Assets!
