Blurb: Logan: Wild Boys After Dark #1 (Releasing November 15, 2015)

Stella “Stormy” Knight is an expert at hiding—her feelings, her past, and her identity. Sometimes all that hiding takes its toll, and she needs to come out from under that heavy suit of armor and cut loose—but it never takes her long to put it right back on and disappear without a trace.

Private Investigator Logan Wild is relentless in his pursuit to discover the truth for his clients. He works hard, plays even harder, and always walks away unscathed and untethered. Until he meets mysterious and sexy-as-hell Stormy, who leaves him craving more than a one-night stand.

Passion ignites, secrets are shared, and their deep connection is impossible to ignore. But in order to have a future, Logan must uncover Stormy’s dark past—and when he does, he’ll hold her fate in his hands.

The first things that come to mind after reading Logan are "hot damn!" and "mmm...Logan..." I can't stress enough just how much I enjoyed reading this. It's got everything you want in a romantic suspense story-complex characters plus an overload of tension and suspense, all keeping you riveted to the story the entire way through.

The intensity between Stella and Logan is overwhelming right from the start, and everything between them happens blazingly fast, but it didn’t feel like it was too fast to me as I was reading. It actually felt just right given the off-the-charts chemistry between them.

Stella has demons (well, just one big one) from her past always one step away, and it serves as a constant nagging worry for her. Logan has his own secrets in his past, though his issues seem to be more self-made. Seeing how he immediately becomes so protective of Stella and how he continues to drive forward, searching for a way to free her of her burden, it demonstrates his loyalty and devotion--even if he fell for her fast and hard.

I was glued to every page, and my only (minor) issue was the seemingly anti-climactic conclusion. But, the majority of the story vastly overshadows this little blip for me. This thoroughly engrossing story, with it's hot and steamy scenes and intense, compelling male lead (mmm...Logan...) earned every single one of the five stars I gave it. Now I can't wait for the next book in the series, and you can be sure the moment it's available I'll be devouring it just like I did this one!

Recommended strictly for 18+ due to language and those super hot and steamy sexual scenes.

Heath: Wild Boys After Dark #2 (Releasing November 17, 2015)
No last names. No strings. No ties.
Except of the silk variety.

Dr. Heath Wild and Allyson Jenner only wanted a simple tryst. But Heath couldn’t live with just one night, just one taste, of Ally—and Ally couldn’t escape the memory of his hands on her skin, the way he looked at her like she was his obsession, or his seduction, which had pushed her to the edge and had made her want to do things she never had before.

One night leads to one tantalizing phone call. Can one phone call lead to forever?

This is one story that I found to be just right.  Great characters, a storyline that shows the emotional growth of a relationship, plus hot and steamy points that knock your socks off from the very first scene…it all adds up to one fantastic read.  

Heath’s character is amazing, and I fell head over heels for him from the start—and then over and over again the further into the story I read.  Yes, he was a bit of a hook-up guy before meeting Allyson, and she was a bit that way as well.  But when you meet the one…everything changes.  I actually found the romance between them pretty sweet, filled with a growing deep emotion but also punctuated with some nice doses of spice that will have you heating up as well.  

These Wild men really are wild after dark, which you get here the moment you open up the book to its first page.  In between those super spicy moments?  We get to see Heath and Allyson’s relationship go from one-night stand to tentatively dating to something so deep and filled with emotion that those spicy scenes are just icing on the rest of this sweet and loving story.  While there’s no huge dramatic scene to introduce some big issue or overloads of tension, this story does not need it—you get plenty of emotion and a really fulfilling story without it.  You also get some thoughtful, intense conversations between Heath and Allyson that show they are both very serious about where this thing between them is going.  

I loved the returning characters of Heath’s brothers, and especially his mother who is wonderfully intuitive and knows her sons better than they know themselves.

Another 5-star read in the Wild Boys After Dark series, Heath will leave you feeling satisfied and with a smile on your face when you finally reach that last page.  I still have a smile on my face while writing this review :-)  Recommended for 18+ only due to adult language and explicit sexual content.  Bring on Jackson and Cooper…I need more of these Wild men!

Jackson: Wild Boys After Dark #3  (Releasing November 24, 2015)

Receiving a marriage proposal is supposed to make a women happy, but when Erica Lane receives a beautiful marriage proposal from her perfect boyfriend on the eve of her annual camping trip with her best friend, Jackson Wild, the first thing she does is jump into bed with Jackson.

Jackson’s all too happy to screw the annoyance out of Erica. After all, they’ve always screwed the hell out of each other when they were bored or angry, lonely, or too damn drunk to see straight.

But the marriage proposal changes everything, and their annual camping trip takes unexpected turns. Will a few nights in the wilderness set these friends with benefits free, or lead them on a path of destruction?

Cooper: Wild Boys After Dark #4  (Releasing December 1, 2015)

Four years ago at a film festival, Cici Fine met Cooper Wild, a man who turned her world upside down in the span of one deliciously perfect week. He was everything she’d ever dreamed of: sinfully sexy, intelligent, and incredibly loving. When the festival ended, they returned to their own hometowns with promises of forever. But Cooper disappeared, and Cici was left to raise the daughter he never knew about alone.

Cooper is finally thinking straight after years of being lost in grief from the tragedy that killed his father and left his mother blind. Now he’s on a mission to find the woman he left behind—the only woman he’s ever loved.

But Cici Fine is no longer a naive young girl. She’s a savvy businesswoman with big responsibilities, on the cusp of a life-changing move. When fate brings the two together, they’ll put the old adage to the test and find out if love really can conquer all.
