(Nights Series, #8)
Publication date: October 16th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Tom Sutherland is an arrogant prick. There, I said it. Okay, so he’s also my assistant and I couldn’t survive without him, but that doesn’t make him less of an irritating bastard — Lana
Lana Keele is a witch. A beautiful, frustrating witch placed on this earth to torment me. Yeah, she’s my boss, but she’s still the most maddening creature I’ve ever had the misfortune to cross paths with — Tom
When Lana Keele, president of Keele Industries and only surviving heir to business tycoon Oliver Keele, wakes up in her devil-of-an-assistant’s bed after a drunken night out, she fears the worst. That is, until prissy Mr. Perfect Tom Sutherland declares that she’s the last woman he’d ever want to sleep with.
After surviving four years in the company of the infuriating woman he’d lusted after since his teens, Tom has had just about enough of the unholy siren that is Lana, especially when she turns up inebriated on his doorstep one night and demands sex. Convinced that Lana will never return his affections, Tom decides that it’s high time to get over his unrequited love.
Except Lana doesn’t quite seem to agree with this plan. Not after she sees him with another woman. Not after she confronts him about it. And most definitely not after he succumbs to temptation and kisses her.
As they finally ignite the fire that has burned so long between them, Tom cannot help but be certain that for Lana, this is just about sex. Will he be satisfied with only having the body of the woman he loves and not possess her heart? Or will Lana convince Tom that she truly means to give him her everything?
Discover Lana and Tom’s story in this sexy and stormy addition to the hot, contemporary romance series Nights by A.M. Salinger. Note from the author: although each book inNights can be read as a standalone, you will enjoy this series even more if you read the books in order!
This is a novella length MF romance with a HEA.
Tom has been Lana’s right hand man for four years. He has been in love with her for most his life. With his education he could have any job he wants. Instead he works for her. Part of a secret promise made to her father and his father. So he suffers. Day in and day out, watching her with man after man. But he has made a vow to himself to move on.
Lana has been CEO of her father’s company for the past four years. Having lost her father, brother and mother, it is just her now. Tom has been her faithful assistant for all of those years. He gets under her skin. They constantly fight all the time, but where would she be without him. Lost that is where.
That is until one night a chance run in sheds a different light. She sees Tom out with another woman and her blood boils. It is unfortunate that she can’t see what everyone else sees.
This was a hot sexy and quick read. The characters were fun and I loved the push and pull between Lana and Tom. When these two finally give in to the attraction, it’s explosive. Wow! Tom is such a dirty boy. Who knew? Right!? I did feel though as if this story was a bit short and felt like there was so much more that could have made it longer with more depth to it. But hey it is a novella and not a novel.
I have not read any of the previous work and I did not feel lost at all. With that being said, I bet that I would have had more insight to the workings of the supporting characters in this book if I had. So I can say with honesty that this can defiantly be read as a stand alone.
Overall this was a quick fun read. So if you are looking for a quickie to get your motors running, then this book is for you.
