Recently, the Book Bar came across The Night Series by Suzette Riddick. If you are looking for a weekend read to snuggle up with, this quick read would be a perfect selection.
Caliente Nights is the first in the series and introduces us to nursery school teacher Janette Adams and professional athlete Alonzo Castro. The Book Bar gave this one 🍸🍸🍸🍸
Janette hasn’t had it easy, the family has fallen on hard times, she works in her aunt daycare during the day and a department store in the evening. That all changed the night she accidentally damaged Alonzo’s car. Being used to bad news knocking at her door, she wasn’t surprise when he came prepared to demand a pound of flesh for the responsible party.
Alonzo is at his limit with the games people play to get next to him for life in the spotlight. Annoyed at his agent, walking out to a damage car and a note from the responsible party, he immediately think it’s a ploy to get next to him.
What happens next neither of them expected…the beginning of a great romance. I couldn’t help but to celebrate this couple overcoming everything to be together.
Sultry Nights is the next in this series and we meet Teresa Castro and Pierce Harrington. We learn that their past relationships didn’t exactly work out and kept them both single for years. One might say it’s because they were meant to be together. The Book Bar gave this one 🍾🍾🍾🍾🍾
Teresa alienated herself from family after her parents disagreed with her choice of boyfriend. In retrospect they were correct about him not being the right choice, but their reasons were founded on prejudice and ultimatums. She went off on her own to suffer in silence and used her energy to fulfilled her dreams.
Because her brothers were always protective, Alonzo made sure he was able to keep a close eye on her from a distance. This assignment was given to Pierce and over time he fell in love with Teresa, but his professionalism wouldn’t allow him to break protocol.
When Teresa decide to come home and Pierce assignment ends, things get real interesting. My favorite parts of the book was seeing them beat all odds and discover their love for each other.
We are expecting another book to complete this series and I am hoping it will be Julio’s story. While reading these two books it made me curious of his back story.
