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.
Saxby Cole’s latest mission—at Decadence, a hedonistic tropical resort—sounds like a plum assignment for a confirmed bachelor, but he isn’t here to mingle. There’s a dangerous prostitution ring drugging innocent women—and Sax has come to take them down.
After dumping her cheating fiancé right before their Caribbean vacation, Jennessy Shaw goes alone, hoping to explore her wild side. But by the end of the first night, she’s not sure she has one. Which is why it’s so shocking when she wakes up in a sexy stranger’s room with no memory of the night before.
Sax wants to send this sweet beauty home, but Jennessy turns out to be a valuable partner in his investigation. Even more surprising is the sudden need he feels to keep her close. Diving together into the dark shadows of this island paradise, Jennessy lets Sax into her heart—and discovers a passion she never knew she had.
Saxby Cole is a former SEAL who now works as a private investigator for the Justiss Alliance. He is on an undercover assignment as an overworked financial geek (with bad taste in clothing and difficulty in attracting women) to a private island resort in the Bahamas – Decadence – to investigate allegations of women being drugged and violated sexually. On the flight to the resort, he meets Jennessy Shaw.
Jennessy Shaw has been a good girl all her life and was looking forward to spicing up her relationship with her boyfriend on Decadence, but when she catches him cheating on her just before they are due to leave on their trip she dumps him and goes by herself to explore her wild side. The first step to exploring her wild side? Propositioning the guy she meets on the flight to Decadence. Sax is attracted to Jennessy but cannot pursue the attraction so as not to blow the lid off his investigation. Besides, he does not do long term because of the ‘cheating’ gene in the Cole family line and Jennessy is long term relationship material.
Sax’s request for a ‘sure thing’ nets him a drugged Jennessy. Waking up in a stranger’s bed with no memory of the night before is definitely not the way Jennessy planned on exploring her wild side. Luckily, the bed is Sax’s and Jennessy discovers his real reason for being there. She goes from victim to being his partner in uncovering the date rape scheme.
With Jennessy’s knowledge of the investigation Sax is free to explore his intense attraction to her, while working with her to uncover the identity of the bad guys. And boy do they explore! Lots of passion-filled day and nights, indoors and outdoors! I loved watching Jennessy’s confidence grow as she took control of her life and also loved that Sax was protective of her as she did this. Sax’s “Darlin’s” also had my heart skipping a few beats!
The suspense was well-done – action-packed and filled with danger and kept me on the edge of my seat. The twist at the end I definitely did not see coming. Wild Nights was an enjoyable read filled with lots suspense and passion, just how I like my romantic suspense. I look forward to reading more from Tina Wainscott.
