When I read the blurb for Bad Girl by Night, I couldn’t wait to read about Carly’s double life. From time to time, I like to read books that are so far from my life (and lifestyle) just so I can take a walk in someone else’s shoes. Sort of like a farfetched escape, if you will. I was curious to see how Carly handles Jake entering her ‘normal life’. It seemed like there was going to be some tension and hot romance and that’s exactly what I got.
I felt so connected to the story and the main characters. Carly and Jake are both struggling to deal with their own tormented pasts. While it brings them closer together emotionally in their relationship, at the same time it pushes them apart. The battle for control in the relationship starts to take a toll on Jake and there’s a moment when I wasn’t sure if he was going to be able to push past that.
This was the most erotic book I’ve read to date. I blushed a few times. Okay, more than a few times. To give you an idea if this book is for you, here’s what you can expect when reading Bad Girl by Night: m/f/m, ménage a trios, sex involving food, back-door sex, sex with an audience watching and strong sexual language. While there are lots and lots of sexually explicit and risqué content in this book, there are no BDSM or f/f scenes.
The name of this series is H.O.T. Cops – now don’t get me wrong, that’s sexy. Who doesn’t love a man in uniform? But the story in this book doesn’t really touch on the cop aspect. Yes, Jake is a cop but he’s in a small town where crime is at a minimum. There’s no action really, save for one event – a personal one for Jake, that takes place towards the end of the book. Other than that, he’s helping ducks cross the road. I would have liked to have seen a little more action.
Erotic romance isn’t something I would read on daily basis but it is a nice treat to indulge in from time to time. When you’re in the mood for a titillating, sizzling erotic read, I’d definitely recommend Bad Girl by Night. In order for you to enjoy this one, erotica has to be your cup of fiction and you need to totally let loose your inhibitions. After reading the excerpt for Party of Three (provided in at the end of Bad Girl by Night), the next book in this series, I’m definitely looking forward to reading it.
Side note: About half way into the book, I discovered author Lacey Alexander also writes under the pseudonym Toni Blake. If you’re looking for a tamer romance novel, I’d recommend the books under the Toni Blake name. Those books are more heavy on the storyline but still have some sexy scenes. So it all depends what you’re in the mood for.
