I just know I've read another Karen Erickson book before but I just can't remember which one. It must be that old age catching up to me ;)

A guy of her own? She’s not holding her breath—until he steals it away.
Vegas Nights, Book 3
Natalie’s girls-only weekend in Vegas is shot to hell, thanks to her friends ditching her for very sexy, very famous guys. Not that she blames them. She knows what lonely feels like. A nurse’s long hours leave little time for a social life.
Then she collides with and spills her drink all over a very fine, very exposed male chest. A chest belonging to Noah Wilde, lead singer for the infamous Wilde & Wicked rock band. Thankfully, he’s merely amused as she tries to take care of the mess she made.
Noah sure would like to make a mess of the gorgeous, petite lady with luminous blue eyes. There’s no resisting the urge to tempt her along for an adventurous night of gambling, drinking, eating, and sin.
But during the harsh light of day, Noah has a change of heart. Not about the fact he likes Natalie—a lot. He’s not sure he wants to drag this sweet lady through his sordid life. Even though sparing her could cost them both a chance at forever.
Warning: Contains a nurse who thought she knew all there was to know about anatomy, and a rock god who’s about to show her a few spots she missed. To say they both hit the jackpot would be an understatement.
A girls night only in Vegas sounds like the perfect chance to blow off some steam for Natalie. As a nurse she doesn’t have much time for a personal life, but after her two friends ditch her for two sexy as sin celebrities, Natalie is left feeling lonely, unsure and ready to call it a night but a chance accident has Natalie spilling her drink all over the lead singer of rock band Wilde & Wicked.
Wild Nights takes place within a couple of days, not a whole lot of time for a couple to get to know one another, especially when they both start off with a one night stand in mind. For such a short timeline author Karen Erickson made sure her main characters, Noah and Natalie had a chance to form a connection that would make them want to spend more time together even when their one night was over. Noah and Natalie’s romance wasn’t without its angst and mild conflicts however. Noah’s celebrity lifestyle was the complete opposite of Natalie’s low key existence as a nurse. The two of them had to first want to be with each other bad enough to begin the next step in their whirlwind romance. Not an easy feat to accomplish with such a short amount of time but Erickson managed without losing my interest.
As a whole, Wild Nights was a sexy, uncomplicated read that I enjoyed. It’s one of those stories that you can squeeze in between busy days.
Final Verdict: Apparently I missed books 1 & 2. I must fix this ASAP.
