Wild Boys After Dark #1

Released November 15th
World Literary Press

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.

 Melissa Foster has shifted direction and turned up the heat in Logan, the first book in her new darker, sexier series Wild Boys After Dark.

The plot is fast paced and completely enveloped me. I was expecting hotter, sexier scenes but got way more than I bargained. The narrative is suspenseful, dialogue is grittier and the bedroom scenes are naughtier.

Our protagonists meet at a bar where Stella (Stormy) Krane is scratching a living and Logan Wild is having a late night drink in the bar owned by his childhood friend Dylan. He's instantly smitten by the sassy woman behind the bar who is sending out all kinds of mixed signal to him. After an over zealous guy from a bachelor party gets out of control and attempt to assault Stormy, Logan is determined to save the only woman to REALLY interest him in a long time.

As you'd expect, the writing is stellar from this author and I'm enjoying the directing she's taking with this collection of stories. The interaction between “Stormy” and Logan is palpable and is complemented by the likeable supporting characters and a gripping plot line. The best part? Logan has three sexy alpha brothers waiting to tell their stories...I'm hooked!

P.S. The epilogue will make you warned ;-)

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?

Wow, what a scorcher of a beginning for this second novella in the Wild Boys series! This story centres around Heath, a medical doctor, who has perfected the bedside chat perfectly!

The eldest of Mary Lou Wild's sons, Heath is my favourite although all the brothers are sexy and very likeable. What makes his and Ally's relationship so believable is their ability to communicate with each other on so many levels, making this a truly must-read book.

Heath Wild and Ally Jenner meet at a medical conference and hook-up after they can't deny the mutual attraction sizzling between them. They agree it's just one night but, one night just isn't enough. They agree to spend a second night together before going their separate ways knowing only their first names and telephone numbers. Do they want to see where this attraction takes them, or simply remember the memories of their short time together?

Their sexual chemistry makes them highly compatible in the bedroom, but it is their overwhelming need to pursue what started as a one-night stand that scares them both to death. Their mutual feelings for each other take them both by surprise, leaving them indecisive about how to progress forward. They both have trust issues from previous relationships, so have a valid reason for walking away.

You're so communicative,” she said with a smile.

Heath's strength is his communication skills. He's fighting his own inner feelings but still wants to talk and ask Ally if she feels the same way...what her concerns are etc... She's reluctant to reveal her insecurities, but Heath skilfully manages to coax her into believing they have something worth pursuing, even when he's not 100% sure himself.

Reading a Melissa Foster book means you know you'll be getting a well written narrative, with strong, personable protagonists. Heath, far exceeds my expectation on that score and I love that the heat level has been ramped up in this fabulous series. I'm not usually a fan of novellas, but I've now had a change of heart. Keep them coming…!
