The Synopsis for ‘Wild Nights’:
The courageous men of USA Today bestselling author Tina Wainscott’s Justiss Alliance series never give up and never make a promise they can’t live up to—especially when love is on the line.
The only commitment Saxby Cole has ever made is to the SEALs. He follows a long line of Southern charmers who swear monogamy isn’t in their blood. He’s never met a woman who made him want to swear his allegiance—until, while undercover for a Justiss Alliance assignment, he finds a woman who makes him think twice.
When Jennessy Shaw’s boyfriend dumps her right before their vacation to a hedonistic Caribbean resort, she goes without him to explore her wild side. Throwing caution to the wind, she propositions Saxby—only to suffer his gentle rejection.
When she wakes in Saxby’s room with no memory of the night before, Jennessy discovers his real purpose: to sniff out an operation where women like her are drugged and prostituted to resort guests. She goes from victim to his investigative partner . . . but getting too close to the sexier-than-sin Saxby may be her wildest move yet.
My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘Wild Nights’ (Justiss Alliance Series – Book #3):
This is the third novel of the Justiss Alliance Series by Tina Wainscott titled “Wild Nights.” This is the first and only novel I’ve read of this series but I have to admit, I’m now very curious in reading the previous novels of this series because of this novel. I truly enjoyed it and adored the characters in this novel as well as the small glimpses of past characters mentioned from the previous novels of this series. “Wild Nights” is written in the two P.O.V.’s(point of views) of the main characters Jennessy Shaw and Saxby Cole.
Saxby Cole is a former Navy SEAL who now works as an investigator for a private civilian agency named Justiss Alliance. He is sent to gather Intel on a possible scheme where female guests may be given date rape drugs at the adult vacation hot-spot Decadence. His sexy southern charm has always made it easy for him to lure the opposite sex but he’s never felt the urge to do relationships. He says it has to do with being a “Cole” because no one, including his father, has ever been faithful to their spouse. To make sure he never hurts a woman the way he saw his mother’s heartbreak, he’s made sure to never do serious commitments to anyone but his missions and the men who are like his brothers in those missions. But Sax did not plan on meeting Jennessy on his next mission.
Jennessy Shaw was headed to Decadence alone. The trip had been previously booked as a getaway for Jennessy and her boyfriend Lane but those plans changed when she found out he was cheating on her. She didn’t cancel the trip and wanted to go on the vacation to just explore and spread her wings. She had only been with one man sexually and had always lived a safe and good girl lifestyle. When she met the nice guy Saxby on the plane, she didn’t think much of him but enjoyed the conversation and the way he seemed almost protective. Jennessy had no clue what expect especially when she checked-in at the hotel at Decadence and found out her room would be on the “Wild Side” where a bikini was overdressed. It was a switch from what she thought she booked which was the “Mild Side”. Jennessy would find out that things sometimes happen for a reason.
This novel was entertaining, suspenseful and had a great dose of sexy moments. Will Jennessy be able to get over Lane or will she choose to forgive him? Is Saxby going to follow in the “Cole” footsteps and never give love a chance? Will the mission cost Sax more than he can handle? How will Jennessy and Saxby’s lives be effected by the possible date rape drugs being given at Decadence? Who’s behind distributing the rape drugs and will everyone responsible be caught? I do recommend this novel and it’s made me interested in reading the previous novels of this series. Yes, that good! Check it out if you want something enjoyable to read.
MY BLOGGING READER’S STAR RATING: ‘WILD NIGHTS’ 4 out of 5 stars:
How I imagined Jennessy and Saxby while reading ‘WILD NIGHTS’:
★★★MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘WILD NIGHTS’★★★
Saxby’s thoughts: “I’m in.” Sax fumed at the thought of women being taken advantage of. He thought of his own sisters, sweet, sassy Southern women. It didn’t matter how strong a woman was, if she’d been given one of these insidious drugs, she was helpless.
Saxby to Jennessy: “Mr. Southern Charm. He’s part of one of those old Louisiana families, grew up on a big plantation right on the ole Mississippi. Cheating is considered a male family trait.”
Jennessy’s thoughts: Maybe she’d find someone fun tonight. Someone to make her forget a man whose smile still haunted her. Damn, one brief conversation, one briefer kiss, and the man was imprinted in her brain.
Saxby’s thoughts: This was the worst op Sax had ever run. Not because of the boring attire or even the anti-charming role he had to play. No, it was one woman he’d hurt. Damn, why had a beautiful, classy woman even given him the time of day, much less a kiss he could still feel? But somehow they’d connected, and now he was a plain-out asshat in her view.
Jennessy’s thoughts: No, no, no, don’t fall in love with him. He said he’d never met a woman who made him want to try commitment. But he didn’t know you yet.
Saxby’s thoughts: She was going to be a helluva hard habit to break. Even if it was for her own good, parting ways would wring out his guts. Wait a minute. He was Saxy, who never looked back once he’d moved on. Who had never become attached to any woman. He almost felt relieved. There would be no gut-wringing sensations once he’d returned to his life in Miami. So why was her voice echoing in his mind? King of denial.
Jennessy and Sax: She took a deep pull of the last of tropics she’d experienced for a while and caught Sax watching her. Gripping his phone, frozen in the moment.
“What?” she asked, feeling the same sense of loss that she saw in his eyes.
“I was just remembering when we met here, and I saw you from across the patio. You looked beautiful. Even after everything you’d been through, you were freakin’ gorgeous.”
Saxby’s thoughts: This amazing woman had captured his heart, his admiration, and his respect, and he was torn between saving her from his weaknesses and claiming her.
