Jackson: Wild Boys After Dark #3  (Releasing November 24, 2015)

Receiving a marriage proposal is supposed to make a women happy, but when Erica Lane receives a beautiful marriage proposal from her perfect boyfriend on the eve of her annual camping trip with her best friend, Jackson Wild, the first thing she does is jump into bed with Jackson.

Jackson’s all too happy to screw the annoyance out of Erica. After all, they’ve always screwed the hell out of each other when they were bored or angry, lonely, or too damn drunk to see straight.

But the marriage proposal changes everything, and their annual camping trip takes unexpected turns. Will a few nights in the wilderness set these friends with benefits free, or lead them on a path of destruction?

My Thoughts:
First off, I struggled with Jackson's story. Don't get me wrong it was a hot steamy read, but I had issues with the circumstances of Jackson and Erica's (Laney) relationship. I'm okay with a couple doing the whole friends with benefits thing, but I struggle with that Laney was in a relationship and still getting her rocks off with Jackson. Seriously, it was difficult for me to deal with the situation, and from what I understand Bryce was a decent guy. I felt that Laney was stringing him along until Jackson woke and smelled the roses.

Yes, Jackson and Laney had some hot steamy moments, but there was always Bryce in the background. The struggle, but I have to say that I liked George and how he had to put things in perspective for Laney. Thank god for George, because he saved the book for me. Dylan Bad helped Jackson realize he was being a dumb ass. I did like the end of the story, but I just want Bryce to find someone who will appreciate all his good qualities. Even though Jackson's story isn't my favorite one, it still had steamy moments and the great revelation that they were meant to be together even though he almost screwed it up.

Cooper: Wild Boys After Dark #4  (Releasing December 1, 2015)

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 Thoughts:
I believe that Cooper's story was a good one to end on. Yes, he's the baby of the family, but it seems that he had falling in love with a long time ago. However, the events prevent him for making Cici his completely. I'm not saying what he did was excusable, but he was grieving and he realized he needed to right a wrong that was four years a little too long. Still he was making attempts to right the wrong. Now Cici has been carrying a the secret for just as long, and I'm not saying what she did was right or wrong. She could have found a way to tell him about the child, then again he was pretty messed up at the time. Fortunately, it worked out for Cooper and Cici. 

Yes, Cooper's story could have gone in so many directions, and could have been longer. Yet, I think it was a pretty good story with the direction it went with the secret child/reunion trope. I liked how it all tied everyone together at the end. I enjoyed that each of the brothers were able to find true love in end. I think the end to Cooper's story was extremely sweet.
