Lola’s heart already belongs to Johnny, but for him, she’d sell the devil her soul. Unfortunately, the devil wants something else.
Beau Olivier is the kind of wealthy that buys anything—even people. When he makes Lola Winters a proposition, she finds herself tempted into a seduction that will have her walking the line between comfort and humiliation, desire and resistance. He would own her—for one night. She would be his—for a price. It was wrong. It was scandalous. It was the opportunity of a lifetime.
Sex, music, neon on the Sunset Strip—right in the middle of it all, he would have her. Come sunrise, he would let her go. At least, that was the plan.
Night Fever is the first novella in the erotic romance Night Fever Serial. All three parts release November 2014. Reader discretion is advised due to mature themes intended for an 18+ audience. 51,000 words.
I was super excited to get my hands on this one. I wanted to see what it was about Johnny that made Lola stay with him, and what it was about Beau that made him so compelling.
Johnny's desire to own the bar and Lola's willingness to do anything are what play a huge role in this story, along with showing how deep their feelings truly go for each other. The majority of the story takes place over the one night Lola spends with Beau. There's a lot of stubbornness with both of them regarding how they should feel about each other. By the end of the night, neither of them are sure what to think, or what's next.
Night Fever was an intriguing start to the series. While it kept my interest, it didn't quite grip me. There were more moments where I was wondering why I should like either Johnny or Beau, but I did find some reasons for Beau. Jessica Hawkins has gotten the series off to a good start. I'll probably pick up the next book at some point to see what happens next.
