Night time is the right time...
Gwendolyn Kidd has met the man of her dreams. He's hot, he's sexy, and what started as a no-names-exchanged night of passion has blossomed into a year and a half-long pleasure fest. Sure, it's a little strange that he only appears in her bed at night, but Gwen is so sure he's the one, she just can't turn him away...
Hawk Delgado knows more about Gwen than she could ever imagine. She's gorgeous, headstrong, and skittish about relationships. But Hawk is facing his own demons, demons that keep him from connecting with anyone. Yet when Gwen is drawn into Denver's lethal underground scene, Hawk's protective nature comes out full force. The problem is, when Gwen gets a dose of Hawk's Alpha attitude in the daylight, she's not so sure he's the one anymore.
Mystery is good!
That was a great read. The story was truly a page turner and had great depth and closure. Sexy hot, with a big dose of action from some alpha’s who work for Hawk. Hawk and Gwen start out as literally ...strangers in the night for a year and a half until a twist brings them into the light and then all hell breaks loose. I loved the story of Hawk with Gwen but you totally lost me at “Baby” every single person in this book used “baby” as their go to word so much so it grinded on me as I read. You couldn’t have found a different word so it stayed special between Hawk & Gwen! It was off putting. The only other nagging thing was that there were 4 males in the story and they all loved Gwen...that just was unbelievable and corny really. Ginger her sister and the bad boys after her were a true saving grace to the rest of the story. It is definitely one to read! I just had trouble getting past those nagging parts. The end was awesome when they have their 2 boys and a surprise daughter!
I like Kristen Ashley. This was a massive disappointment.
1) Hero Hawk decides on his own and without discussing it with heroine Gwen that they were done with condoms. He spied on her and discovered her birth control. Continues to sleep with other women. Monitors Gwen to make sure she doesn’t sleep with other men. Apparently STIs are a non-issue and Gwen has so little pride she can’t even insist on either monogamy or protection for herself - even in a relationship solely based on sex.
2) Apparently any woman that likes casual sex is a “slut”. But the super macho men that don’t like to be tied down to one partner are just super macho men.
3) Hero breaks up with her. When he decides he wants to give the relationship another go but heroine initially refuses, he gaslights her into believing she’s the “selfish cow” for not giving him another chance.
4) Both Tack and Lawson seemed like infinitely better partners. Gwen is clearly an idiot for being given three options and picking the biggest dick of the bunch.
If you like a damsel in distress that knows she’s being disrespected but can’t seem to escape her emotionally and sexually abusive relationship, this one’s for you. Otherwise, run.
Gwen needs a MM. She’s without, but we all can’t be with it. KA does not disappoint. Lots of interesting characters that are intelligent.
