She wants one night. He wants her forever.

Hayden Summers just landed the job of a lifetime taking pictures for Time magazine, but she’s determined to leave with no regrets. The first thing on her list? Erase the memory of her cheating ex with a wild night of anonymous sex. The second? Figure out why her best friend, sexy bar owner Jace Jennings, stopped speaking to her the night she told him about the job. 

Jace has a problem. Hayden isn’t just leaving the country, she’s risking her life—just when he’s realized he’s in love with her. When fate traps them in the storage room of his bar together, barely contained desire simmers to surface. In one last attempt to keep her, Jace offers Hayden the one thing she wants: a night of hot sex, no strings attached. But when the night is over, will Jace be able to let her go? And will Hayden leave with her heart intact?

***Mild Spoilers***

"Do you want me Hayden?"...
"Yes," she said with bated breath. "I want you"
"Then we're done talking"

This was one quick and sexy novella. I often find with short stories that I don't have enough time to get to know characters well enough to care what happens to them. But I really connected with Jace & Hayden. 

The fact that they have been friends for so long & have secretly loved each other also helped with the romantic connection between them. It created so much sexual tension in the short time we spend with them. You know how they've felt all this time, and just can't wait until they finally get together! And when they do…EXPLOSIVE!!!!

"He groaned and brought his body flush against hers, pressing her into the door so that all she could feel was the heat of him, warming all the places where her too tight clothes were plastered against her body"

The ending was also really super sweet I actually *awwwed* out loud! It just finished off this hot and steamy novella perfectly!

It was too short! I wanted more Jace *wink wink* (or maybe some more Nate, hint hint Miss Day!)

A hot & steamy novella definitely worth a read!!! Definitely hoping there will be a story for Nate & Lilly next!

Sexuality: Strong / sex scenes
Violence: none
Language: medium / several f**k
Drugs & alcohol: mild 


  1. Great Review. Loved Jace. I agree for a short novella you really feel their connection. I am so hoping Nate and Lilly will have their story.

    1. YES Nate and Lily have to have their own 'enemies turned lovers' story - and hopefully it will be a bit longer too!!

  2. I can't wait for Nate and Lily's story! I think it's going to be epic based on this novella! I've never read Tara (Nicolette's) books before! I'm a fan for life now!
