MY REVIEW

Bad Boys After Dark: Dylan by Melissa Foster

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by Melissa Foster via Beck Valley Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.

Review

‘Dylan’ is the second novella instalment in the ‘Bad Boys After Dark’ series. It was hot, sexy and completely head-over-heals romantic! I love that this novella series can be read as a standalone. Mainly, due to the fact that it has been ages since it have read the first instalment in the series. It also allows for a great, quick winter/summer read when you are in need of something to pick you up after a dry spell.
I loved the romance and happily-ever-after that infused every single aspect of this novella. It was bright and cherry most of the time: something to make an avid reader’s soul sing. Yet, it also managed to encapsulate realistic problems that often arise in relationships, making it vastly authentic and wholly tangible.
Both Dylan and Tiffany had problems which they had to overcome. For them it was very interpersonal. Dylan had trouble with overcoming his need to always be the knight in shining armour; Tiffany harboured past relationship trauma which greatly impacted her ability to place trust in others. The two seemed well matched and I loved their quirky and witty conversations with each other. They were real people with real personalities.
Lots of background was placed behind each of the main characters. Tiffany and Dylan both had big families which were created with meaning and depth. I love this about Melissa Foster’s storytelling! Family and love is the central theme and it never tires in my eyes.
Unfortunately, I would sometimes lose interest in the story and plot. I wished that there was faster pace and sometimes the events seemed to drag on. I also found it hard to connect with this couple at a depth that would have me on the edge of my seat and my heart in tatters like with previous couples in the series.
The writing flowed well and there weren’t any typos that I couldn’t spot. Easy to read language written in a highly experienced and professional prose.
If you pick up this novel, be prepared to read some SERIOUS sexy times. 😛
Congratulations to Melissa Foster on publishing the second, loveable series in the ‘Bad Boys After Dark’ series! I’m extremely eager to meet Carson!

Rating Plan
1 star : Strongly did not like the book, writing and plot was bad. Idea of the book was against my liking.
2 star : Didn’t like it, didn’t find it interesting or gripping. Seemed to drag on to me.
3 star : An average book. Wasn’t bad or good. Everything else was well done. Original idea.
4 star : Like a 3 star but has potential to it as a series or the book grew on me as it progressed and certain scenes captured me. I Enjoyed it and read it in one sitting.
5 star : I LOVED IT! I stayed up late until 3 am. Author is a genius, characters, plot, idea, development, EVERYTHING was EXCELLENT. Nothing else can possibly be said except that it’s 5 STAR!

Promotional & Giveaway: Mick (Bad Boys After Dark, #1) by Melissa Foster

Title: Mick (Bad Boys After Dark, #1) 
Release Date: 22nd June 2016
Pages: 300
Genre: Erotic Fiction

Indulge your inner vixen…

You asked for naughtier lovers, with the same fierce loyalty as The Bradens – Meet the Bad Boys… Four sinfully sexy, uber alpha brothers, about to fall head over heels for their leading ladies.


BAD BOYS AFTER DARK, #1: MICK

Everything’s naughtier after dark…

Amanda Jenner is done being a boring-man magnet and has finally taken control of her love life. As any smart paralegal would, she’s researched the hell out of how to seduce a man. She’s waxed, primped, and ready to put her newfound skills into action—and a masquerade bar crawl is the perfect venue for her solo coming-out party.

Entertainment attorney Mick Bad lives by two hard and fast rules. He never mixes business with pleasure, and he doesn’t do relationships, which makes the anonymity of a masquerade bar crawl the perfect place for a onetime hookup.

Amanda thinks she’s hit the jackpot when she bags a tall, dark, and sinfully delicious masked man—until she discovers the man she’s made out with is her off-limits boss. Mick’s already crossed a line he can never uncross, and one taste of sweet and sexy Amanda has only whet his appetite. When Mick offers to give Amanda a lesson in seduction—no strings, no regrets, and for goodness’ sake, come Monday, no quitting—the tables turn, and Mick’s totally unprepared for the lessons this sweet temptress provides.

The Bad Boys are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series.

MY REVIEW

Mick by Melissa Foster

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by Melissa Foster via Beck Valley Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.

Review

This is not my first read by the wonderful Melissa Foster, so I knew what to expect before I even opened ‘Mick’. Here is what I knew: 1. It was going to be passionate, sexy and hot, hot, hot; 2. It was going to be a FIVE star; 3. My heart strings would not only be pulled; they would be shredded; 4. I was going to fall in love with Mick Bad. And surprise, surprise! ‘Mick’ did just that!
This novella is the first in the ‘Bad Boys After Dark’ and the fifth in the ‘After Dark’. The ‘After Dark’ series is a sort of large, overarching banner series to ‘Wild Boys After Dark’, ‘Bad Boys After Dark’ and ‘Good Girls After Dark’. If you haven’t checked out ‘Wild Boys After Dark’, BE SURE TO!
I loved how relatable the characters were! It was as if they were personally designed to appeal to me! The connections I forged with them allowed for me to experience their world on a very high level! I couldn’t have asked for better characters!
I loved how the novella didn’t just contain the passionate scenes but it focused on a real story. One that sounded and felt real with a depth of emotion and design. These characters felt like real people because of the history that each was given. I was completely enchanted!
Amanda Jenner was a great female lead! I felt like she perfectly captured the shy and insecure parts of every women. Those determines to escape their shells and become somebody more confident and sexy.
Mick Bad has topped my favourite male lead in this series! I feel like with every consecutive new novella, each male lead has risen above the previous. He was mighty sexy and I admired the thought and background that the author put behind him!
The writing style was great! It conveyed a lot with the simplest of words and this really showed itself. I really admire this about Melissa Foster!
Despite the short length of the novella, I found it highly entertaining! I as a reader I thought that the short length would draw away from the power and emotion that usually make these types of romance novels…but once again I was mistaken. I wouldn’t doubt picking these novellas up despite their short length. They’re well worth it!
Congratulations to Melissa Foster on publishing the first instalment in the ‘Bad Boys After Dark’ series!
