Read An EXCERPT of The First Night

Book Blurb:
The First Night, Book One
Can the last place she needs to be become the first night of her forever?

She planned to meet her coworkers for drinks and be home in a few hours. Getting drunk and staying out all night was not an option. Not for Kayla Dobbs. Going to a bar was already pushing her limits. Between her full-time job and night classes, there was no time to spare for a social life, and certainly no time for a relationship. But when she meets Gannon, the sexy bartender whose hypnotic eyes seem to follow her every move, she wishes things could be different.

Although Kayla doesn't recognize him, Gannon knows exactly who she is—she was the one girl in high school he'd always wanted but had been afraid to pursue. He's changed a lot since high school though, and maybe now he has a chance at making that dream come true.

As she breaks free from her self-induced lifestyle of studying and work, Kayla realizes that no matter how concrete her life plan is, sometimes it only takes one night, one person, to alter it forever.

Content Warning: contains descriptive sex and strong language...

Reviewers Note: The First Night is book one in The Night Series and is an Erotic Contemporary Short written by Sidda Lee Tate. I received this eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review through Tasty Book Tours.

4 Sexy Stars!
Wowza! Keep the Shorts Coming! I’ll Be There!

The Review:

Kayla Dobbs has a strict, regimented life. Having spent the last few years in a town she swore she'd one day escape, working at a job she swore she’d never step foot in, she’s struggling to finish college, work full time and also maintain some semblance of a life. She doesn’t feel theres time for the small things because she’s working towards getting away from small town she feels holds nothing for her.
Deciding to go out on a rare night of letting loose with some friends, she’s instantly attracted to the intense and incredibly attractive bartender but moves on thinking he wouldn't be interested. After getting smashed and passing out, she's completely floored when she wakes up in the hunky bartenders bed but remembers nothing.

After years of being away, Gannon has came home for one purpose. To reconnect with a high school obsession. When she unexpectedly walks into his bar one night, he can’t believe his eyes or the fact she ends up in his bed. And the kicker? She doesn’t recognize him.

This 58 page short is a smokin’ hot, lusty little read that definitely draws you in and holds you hostage as these two characters find their way to each other. Kayla is somber but sweet and Gannon is sexy and intense. Loved them!

The Wrap Up:
I don't normally go for shorts because I feel like there's never enough time or story to emotionally connect with the characters or to what's happening in their lives but this author had me enamored and happy with this delectable read told in alternating POV's. It was provocative, it was sweet and it was packed full of yummy goodness for such a short read. I'm hooked. On to book two, Hijacked, in this series.

Read An EXCERPT of Hijacked

Book Blurb:
Hijacked, Book Two

Will an unexpected encounter leave Sharon's heart hijacked?

When Sharon Blake meets Kyle Phillips her first instinct is to simply seek the pleasure she's certain he can give her. But surprisingly, she feels a strong connection with him, something she's never experienced before, and that conflicts with everything she's always believed—sex is sex and nothing more.

The last woman Kyle trusted with his heart betrayed him, and he has no interest in getting involved with anyone. There's only one problem—now that he's met Sharon, he craves her touch, her laughter, the look in her eyes when he pulls her near.

Kyle and Sharon soon realize that being apart isn't an option. Someone else, though, has different plans for Kyle, and Sharon is left questioning everything he's told her. Kyle tries to explain, to make things right again, but Sharon doesn't know if she can trust him, and her instinct is to walk away now before her heart is bruised even further.

Content Warning: strong language and graphic sex...

Reviewers Note: Hijacked is book two in The Night Series and is a Erotic Contemporary Short written by Sidda Lee Tate. I received this eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review through Tasty Book Tours.


3.5 stars!
Down and Dirty! Another Great Short!

The Review:

Sharon Blake, the sultry, unattainable friend from book one,The First Night, has finally met a man who not only sets her world on fire, but might actually be able to tame the wild child that lives inside her. Meeting handsome Kyle Phillips one night while working at Night, Sharon does like she normally does when she sees something she wants. She goes after it full throttle, with no emotional connection, her walls firmly in place. But Kyle has different plans once he gets a taste of her and is determined to make her feel what he’s feeling.

Sharon didn't leave me with the greatest impression from book one, so I went in with preconceived notions about her morals and character. But as the story moved forwards, I really liked getting to know her better. Kyle was completely swoon-worthy. He was sexy, strong, dominant and powerful. And he was in need of a good companion that could help heal his wounded heart.

The Wrap Up:
I liked this story and I loved seeing Luke and Kayla from books one as they made guest appearances to showcase their lives. Told in alternating POV’s, this story was steamy and fun. My only complaint is the abrupt ending was “too soon and too fast” for me. I would have loved another couple of paragraphs to smooth the transition and even it out.

But that won't stop me from moving on to book three, Give In To Me, starring Scott who we met at the tail end of this read. And he’s already made a hot impression on me! I think this author has changed my stance on short stories because if they were all like this series, I’d read them all the time!
