Blog Tour + Giveaway + Excerpt + Review: Need You Tonight by Roni Loren

Book Blurb:

She’s making a wish list, and he wants to be on top.
From foster kid to trophy wife, Tessa McAllen is about to reinvent herself all over again—and defy every insult her cheating ex-husband ever used against her: Selfish? She’s championing a charity. Stupid? She’s getting her degree.
Boring in bed?
Kade Vandergriff can help her with that one. When they encounter each other at a singles event held at one of his restaurants, Tessa blurts out that kink is for girls who try too hard, and Kade instantly wants to show this sassy stranger how thrilling a night under his command can be…...but when he learns her name, the game changes for both of them.

In high school, Tessa was the popular girl who stuttering, awkward Kade fell for. But she chose another. Now, as she eagerly learns lesson after lesson, he’s going to make sure she never forgets him again.

My Thoughts:

I thought Need You Tonight was fantastic. Need You Tonight grabbed from the first page to the last. I was amazed on how much I loved the story. When Tessa walked in on her husband and best friend in the kitchen and she threw an orange, I was hooked. Tessa was cool and collective and I was impress with her not flying off the handle. I mean she could have grabbed a knife and attack him, but she didn't she threw an orange basically told him she was leaving. I love how her soon-to-be ex-husband try to tell her she's nothing without her and she still kept going. Honestly, I had a feeling it wasn't the last we heard of him. During the prologue he gave that impress of "women are objects" vibe.

Anyway, Tessa decides to go back to Texas to pick up her life when she meets Kade Vandergriff. Now Kade remembers her from high school. He's always had a crush on her and figures this might be a perfect way to get Tessa to see him in a new light. After all he's was an unpopular kid, who didn't stand a chance against a jock.

There is more to Need You Tonight than the sex. Yes, the sex is hot steamy and hella naughty. However, I love Kade helps Tessa build her self-esteem up. After all, she was married to a bastard who tried to keep her in her place. I love the flashback to the past, because it gave you a sense of there was more to Kade and Tessa in high school, but fear held them back.

I personally loved the story and I couldn't put it down. I love that there's more than just sex to the story. Overall, Need You Tonight is unforgettable with two people overcoming the past and learning other things. So, if you like hot naughty books, you might want to grab a copy of Need You Tonight.

Excerpt from Need You Tonight: 
(Rated R)

*Note: Kade is going by the name Van in this scene (his nickname)

Her heart was thumping and blood was roaring through her veins, heating all the best spots. She couldn’t do this, right? She didn’t even know this guy. Considering a quickie with him had been risky enough. But sending her ride home and spending the whole night with him was a whole different story. “I can’t go home with you.”

He leaned down and brushed his lips along her jaw, his blond hair falling forward and tickling her cheek. “We don’t have to go anywhere but here.”

Even the simple touch had her ready to groan aloud, her body starved for this kind of night. This kind of man. How long had it been since she’d felt so desired, so utterly seduced? Maybe never. Somehow, he made it all feel so easy, so natural. Like saying no would be a preposterous notion. Even though it was the most logical answer.

But that logic angel sitting on her shoulder didn’t seem to have much fight to her tonight. No, instead there was another altogether deviant voice whispering in her ear. Stop denying yourself. You need this. You’ve earned an indulgence. A woman should not live by vibrator alone.

She took a long, shuddering breath, letting the temptation take her under. “I’ll text her.”

“Good girl,” he said, the words she’d normally find patronizing like a hot caress against her. “I’ll make sure it’s worth the trouble.”

After Tessa had sent the text and gotten one back from Sam, complete with about twelve exclamation points following her OMG, Van left for a few minutes to bring her keys down. And he must have brought them in person because Sam sent another text shortly afterward.

HOLY shit, girl. U’ve hit the hook-up lottery. Enjoy the condoms!

Tessa was still laughing when Van came through the doorway. He smiled. “What’s so funny?”

“My friend approves of you.”

He gave her a roguish grin. “I’m charming that way.”

“And she thinks you’re hot,” she said matter-of-factly. “That goes a long with Sam.”

He laughed, not bothering to deflect the assessment of his hotness, and crossed his arms. “And what do you think?”

She lifted her chin, jaunty. “I think I don’t like cocky guys.”

  1. I like my reads from sweet to racy. As long as the story is good. I don't read a book for the smexy scenes alone.
