Series: Wild Nights #3
Can you resist what you shouldn’t have?
When wealthy businesswoman, Helena Smerdon, purchases Australia’s most popular male strip revue, the tight-knit group of men are set for an unexpected shake-up.
Helena is not a woman to be messed with: powerful, strong-willed, and confident. She plans to assert her authority and make Wild Nights Revue the very best it can be, regardless of who she aggravates along the way.
Lucas Malone is the newest member of the group. He’s fresh, ambitious, and keen to make his mark. But he wants to do more than impress his new boss; he wants to undress for her, both on and off stage.
Intense chemistry and forbidden attraction make it difficult for Helena and Lucas to resist one another. But they must; she’s his boss, and he’s not much older than her son. And if that isn’t enough to keep them apart, her disgruntled ex-husband sure as hell will.
This book is an interconnecting standalone novel in the Wild Nights series. It’s for mature audiences (18+) and contains explicit language and sexual content.
Pleasure pinched deep within my body, and I clamped my bottom lip between my teeth. His oiled skin held a caramel glow, and his light brown hair was flecked with golden hues that caught the light with each jerking movement he made. Everything about him was deliciously herculean, and if I weren’t roughly twenty years his senior, I’d have propped myself against the concrete wall and enjoyed the show a while longer.
“Come on,” he grunted, the speed of his cupped hand increasing. “Yeah, that’s it, almost … there.”
Frustration ground his teeth together and crinkled his nose, and my God his facial features were beautiful yet virile and vexed.
Swallowing, I quietly stepped back, careful not to tap the five-inch heel of my stiletto on the step behind me. Lucas was the baby and newest member of Wild Nights Male Revue, and knowing I shouldn’t bear witness to what he was doing, I cleared my throat just as his shoulders tensed and his hips jerked.
Cum shot into his hand, and the guttural growl that left his body vibrated right through me, leaving my fingertips tingling. I swallowed for a second time right before startled, greyish blue eyes found mine, a soft red glow emanating from his cheeks.
“What the fuck?” Lucas turned to face the wall, grabbed the small white towel dangling from the waistband of his trousers, and wiped his hands, his head rotating every other second to glance back at me. “You’re not supposed to be back here. It’s a restricted area. You need to leave.”
I almost smiled. Almost. But quickly composed myself by brushing my hands down the front of my navy skirt to smooth any creases before standing straight and crossing my arms over my chest, my perfectly manicured eyebrow cocked with supremacy. “I’m sorry, but I have every right to be here, Lucas.”
“What?” He furrowed his brow as he tucked himself back into his pants, fumbling with the zip. “What do you mean you have every right to be here?”
This time I did smile, but it was far from friendly. “I’m Helena, your new boss.”
My ARC Review:
OK, hands up, I haven’t read the first two books in this series, they have been sat on my Kindle for ages but just haven’t got round to reading them – but when this came up to read, and said it can be read as a standalone, I just couldn’t miss the opportunity – OMG what an absolute blast this book was!!! I couldn’t get enough, hooked within minutes and drooling within the first few pages, what a way to start a book that was!!!
An older woman / younger man style read, which we don’t see many of, and certainly not done this well, where the characters come across so fantastically well, Helena being the new owner of the Wild Nights male strip revue and Lucas being the newest member of the team – young, hot, fresh, ambitious and wanting to make his mark within the team. What they didn’t account for is their strong attraction and intense chemistry for each other, but she’s his boss and he’s not much older than her son!!
I absolutely loved this story, I was walking round with a permanent smile whilst reading this – such an immersive storyline, I totally connected with the characters, especially Helena and what she had been through and what she didn’t want to go through again!
Lucas is such a sweetheart, he knows what he wants and sets about winning Helena over – I love how he treats her and slowly brings down her walls. Helena is such a professional and wants to help the boys be the best they can be – she has been in a bad marriage and has stayed away from relationships since, but she just cannot help how she feels when Lucas is around her!!
The dance routines are awesome and there are some mega hot and steamy goings on in there let me tell you!!
Seriously I can’t believe I haven’t read the other two previous books, but you can certainly read this as a standalone, based on this it won’t be long before I’m reading the other two books! It really was a fantastic read – hot, sexy, funny, romantic with just the right amount of drama – I love Kelly’s books and how easy I find it to connect to her characters, this one has a storyline you can just get lost in, superb!!
