Wild Nights by Tina Wainscott is the third book in the Justice Alliance Series. I received this ARC in exchange for a honest review.
I haven’t read the other two books in the Justice Alliance Series but I was able to follow the book just fine. The book focuses on Saxby Cole, an ex Navy SEAL who is assigned to go undercover at a sex resort. Someone is drugging women and selling them to willing buyers so they can be date raped with no memory of the night’s events. His assignment is to ferret out culprit and shut down the operation. Saxby is someone who does not make commitments to women. The typical love ’em and leave ’em bad boy.
Now enter Jennessy Shaw, recently jilted girlfriend who is determined to have a good time. Jennessy travels to the resort to let her freak flag fly so to speak and prove to herself that she can let loose. Saxby and Jennessy are hit instantly by insta-lust but Saxby cannot cave to his desire to rip her clothes off while he is on assignment. So you have the back and forth of my job….but she is so pretty…..must focus on my job……but she is so hot. I think you can guess which one wins out.
I wouldn’t exactly call this book innovative or groundbreaking, but it has a good story line and likable characters. Saxby has issues with monogamy due to his horn dog father. He feels like it is in his genes to be unfaithful so he never commits to a woman. However, he is very loyal to his friends and cannot tolerate women being abused. He is wonderfully alpha without being disrespectful or coming across as an asshole. Jennessy is sensible and strong. Not once did I have the overwhelming desire to want to shake her, pull my hair in frustration, scream at or throw my Nook. She knows when to listen and follow directions and she is very smart about her actions.
Saxby and Jennessy are true partners in this book. They rely on each other and use each other’s best skills in order to solve the case. There is no I am strong man. You weak woman. You listen to strong man. The major conflict is Saxby’s resistance to accept his feelings for Jennessy. He constantly fights against the little love bug that is burrowing into his cold heart.
If you are looking for a fun read that has some action and a few naughty scenes then I recommend checking out Wild Nights. You won’t be disappointed. I give this book three solid I like it stars.
