WILD BOYS AFTER DARK, Book Four

 Cooper

Four years ago at a film festival, Cici Fine met Cooper Wild, a man who turned her world upside down in the span of one deliciously perfect week. He was everything she’d ever dreamed of: sinfully sexy, intelligent, and incredibly loving. When the festival ended, they returned to their own hometowns with promises of forever. But Cooper disappeared, and Cici was left to raise the daughter he never knew about alone.

Cooper is finally thinking straight after years of being lost in grief from the tragedy that killed his father and left his mother blind. Now he’s on a mission to find the woman he left behind—the only woman he’s ever loved.

But Cici Fine is no longer a naive young girl. She’s a savvy businesswoman with big responsibilities, on the cusp of a life-changing move. When fate brings the two together, they’ll put the old adage to the test and find out if love really can conquer all.

MY REVIEW

This is the fourth and final book in the After Dark Wild Boys series and what a fabulous finale.

It’s four years since Celeste (Cici) Fine fell under Cooper Wild’s spell in Bay City at a film festival.  After a week with Cooper, the perfect man in and out of bed, they went their separate ways, promising they would see each other again.  That never happened but Cici has not forgotten him.   How could she when her young daughter Melody’s blue eyes are a daily reminder of Cooper – who knows nothing of her existence.  Cici was sure he would get in touch again but that never happened.  So she got on with her life, raised her daughter and built a photographic business specialising in family and children’s portraits.  Now’s she’s planning to move to New York where she has secured several lucrative contracts.  However, as she committed to attending the film festival in Bay City, Maryland, she’s fitted this in between the packing.

Cici was certain the last place she would ever find Cooper would be in Bay City. She felt it wouldn’t be an important enough gig for him but answering a knock on her hotel room door, there he is.

For both of them, it’s as if time has stood still.  Their physical desire for each other is as potent as their emotional bond. Cooper tells her he still loves her.  He explains why he never contacted her – the robbery, his father’s death and serious injuries to  his mother which left her blind. He explains how badly it affected him mentally, that by the time he had got his life back on track he felt it was too late to find her. That she would have moved on.

Feeling she has been given a second chance for love again, the one remaining problem  for Cici is the best way to break the news to Cooper about Melody. But before she can resolve this, she is called back home to a family emergency involving her sister Tegan.  With no idea where she has gone Cooper, knowing  he can’t risk losing her a second time, enlists the help of his PI brother Logan to track her down.

Back  home Cici realises if she is to have a future with Cooper then she has to tell  him about Melody.  But how will he react when she reveals this one secret she has still kept hidden?  Will it bring them together or tear them apart?

Great characters and a wonderful story about two people given a second chance for love – a fantastic ending to this quartet of  books.

I would like to thank Brook Cottage Books and the author for giving me a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

MY REVIEW

Erica ‘Laney’ Lane has had a ‘friends with benefits’ relationship with celebrity photographer Jackson Wild since they were at high school.  Her parents’ divorce when she was a young teen is something which has left her vowing never to marry.  Laney’s tattooed heart and Jackson’s key are the symbols that bind this close relationship.  Although agreeing to give each other the freedom to date other people they are always there for each other.  They also have an understanding that if ever the right person came along and either of them did want to marry, then the physical side of their relationship would stop and they would simply be friends.  Their promise to each other seemed such an easy thing to make at the time, but now Laney’s current boyfriend, stockbroker Bryce Ricker has proposed over her birthday dinner.

As part of her birthday celebrations Jackson is about to take Laney camping in the Silver Mountains just outside New York, something which is his regular birthday treat.  Having her arrive in tears with chocolates, red roses and the news Bryce has asked her to marry him isn’t at all what he expected. Maybe they had an agreement, maybe he knew someday it would happen but now it has he’s not sure how he really feels about it.  One thing is certain though, he can’t commit to Laney in the same way Bryce has; monogamy is simply not his thing.

The two set off for their mountain trek, hopeful of sorting things out.  Both struggle, unable to separate what they should do and what they really want.  The weather takes a turn for the worse, accidents happen making a bad situation even worse.  They return home early barely speaking.

I really felt for both Laney and Jackson.  What a situation.  Everything was OK until potential marriage for one of them became a reality. That was the moment they began to realise exactly how important they were to each other.  That behind the friendship and the hot sex there was something else.  But Laney knew Jackson would never commit to just her and Jackson knows he can’t give her the kind of life she deserves.  The kind of life Bryce is offering.

Once again the Wild family became involved, trying to help Jackson make the right decision, to declare his real feelings or walk away. Laney too has decisions to make and suddenly the more she really thinks about her well mannered, totally accommodating Bryce, the more flaws she begins to see in his character. So when Bryce presses her for a response to his proposal, Laney suddenly knows exactly which man wants to spend the rest of her life with. All she needs to do now is tell him.

A hugely enjoyable read and a great third instalment to the After Dark series.

I would like to thank the author for a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

MY REVIEW

After reading this, my first thoughts were Pan Horror meets Tales of the Unexpected.

The story was an interesting read, totally different from the books I normally review.  Beyond the first page it made me keen to know what the future held for these two.  It soon became apparent, however, that we weren’t looking at a happy ending.

As the story opens Ed and Mary Greensmith are on their way, driving to the airport to catch a flight to the South of France. It’s winter and snowing heavily. Mary is seven months pregnant and Ed is flying her there to wait for the birth of their baby.  He has been married before and lost his first wife and baby during childbirth.  He’s not about to risk it happening again.

Before they arrive at the airport they need to take a detour to Ed’s family home.  His father, now in residential care, has asked him to bring a bottle of one of his favourite wines from the cellar.  Ed has memories of the cellar, a place where as a child his father would regularly trick him into going.  He would then lock him in, leaving him in the dark with the rats. Ed remembers one very large rat in particular.

Things start to go wrong when chain smoking Mary ejects a cigarette butt through the window only to have it blow back onto Ed’s clothing.  Ed panics causing the car to swerve to the other side of the road, only to sideswipe an oncoming vehicle. Stopping, they discover the other car has left the road and the driver, a young woman, is dead.

Their decision on what to do next sets off a series of events which lead to an horrific conclusion.

Well written and lots of suspense!

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?

MY REVIEW

This the second book in the After Dark series which features the Wild brothers.  At 34, Heath, an orthopaedic medic who specialises in sports treatment, is the eldest brother of the four.  Having his heart broken at college by someone he really loved has made him steer clear of relationships. He’s a  one-night-stand man who takes his pleasure where he finds it.  He also makes a rule to keep details of his partners to a minimum – first names only and the next morning he’s gone. However, when he meets Ally at a medical conference everything changes. There’s a connection he’s never experienced before with a woman; something that makes him want to see her again.  Ally too has been badly hurt in the past and follows the same rules as Heath. When he asks to see her again she knows she can’t refuse because she too  has felt that same connection.

This was another great read from Melissa. Two people committed to staying single and playing the field discover there can be happy ever after.  All it takes is the courage to open their hearts to each other.

I would like to thank the author for providing a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
