Review: MORE THAN ONE NIGHT by Nicole Leiren

Simply wonderful. That is how I would describe More than One Night by Nicole Leiren. It was a lovely contemporary romance that had my attention from beginning to end. I fell in love with the heroine, Melodie and felt I could relate to her on so many levels. When a character makes me want to be a better version of myself, I always call that a win. The heroine, Daniel, wasn’t too shabby himself, but he did do some very male things in the book.

MoreThanOneNight2Melodie and Daniel meet on a plane. It’s definitely fate that put them next to each other and they listened and went with it. Daniel more than Melodie, but she was convinced to see what was between them. I thought Leiren did a fabulous job with the storyline. It wasn’t the cookie cutter romance that was predictable. I enjoyed how the author wove not only the love story between the couples but their own personal challenges into the plot.

Daniel and Melodie experienced ups and downs in their relationship just like most of us experience in real life. Just when I thought they had it it under control and their happy ever after was in sight, something else came up and proved another hurdle they must jump through. Because of this, it was a book that was hard to put down. I wasn’t sure what to expect regarding the heat level of the book and Leiren did a great job with the intimate scenes. To match the flow of the book and the characters, Leiren allowed just enough detail and left other parts behind closed doors.

Review by Candy

In Payback, Trevor and Cassie Bauer are working hard on a case, spending hours upon hours in front of their computers. As the saying goes, all work and no play makes for a boring life. Trevor suggests a walk through a nearby park and a movie. After some prodding,  Cassie agrees and while on their way to the movies, they grab some ice cream. Cassie puts on quite a show while eating it and Trevor decides that a little payback is in order when they get to the movies. Just how far will he go to get back at his wife?

11705509_835401953224208_4441194331447308691_oAll I can say is WOW. This quick short story will have you squirming in seconds. If a normal love scene is a small campfire,  Almeida and Aubrey dump a can of gasoline on it and then skip away leaving you wanting more. It’s that hot.

Trevor is in full Alpha Geek mode in this short. He knows exactly what he wants and how to get it. There is  great narration about how Trevor has learned what Cassie likes and how he uses all of the tricks to exact his payback. It is the perfect cocky response to a situation that readers have grown to love and expect from Trevor.
