Everything's naughtier after dark...
No last names. No strings. No ties.
Except of the silk variety.
Dr. Heath Wild and Allyson Jenner only wanted a simple tryst. But Heath couldn't live with just one night, just one taste, of Ally--and Ally couldn't escape the memory of his hands on her skin, the way he looked at her like she was his obsession, or his seduction, which had pushed her to the edge and had made her want to do things she never had before.
One night leads to one tantalizing phone call. Can one phone call lead to forever?
The next book in the Wild Boys After Dark has such a simple set up, I can tell you in one sentence: Heath Wild and Allyson Jenner were only supposed to have one night together but after that one night neither one is satisfied and the two begin to make their way towards a possible forever. How’s that for a setup? There’s actually a lot more going for it than just that simple summary though.
Heath’s story continues with author Melissa Foster’s promise to deliver darker, edgier, sexier romances to her fans. So does she do it?
Yes. Heath is definitely a more sexual character than what I’ve read before from Foster (I’m still new to her books but yeah, this is a little different). I personally like these sexier stories.
I liked Heath as a character. He’s charismatic in his own way and while relationships didn’t hold an appeal to him at first, he wasn’t in complete denial about the fact that one night with Ally wasn’t going to be enough for him. I would have liked to know a little more about his past and how that shaped him into the man he is when the story begins.
The same with Ally, there isn’t much background info on her just little slivers that didn’t give me a clear picture of who she was as a woman. I did know that she was a little gun shy about doctors, and she was an intelligent and gutsy woman.
Together Heath and Ally made sense and I appreciated the lack of drama BUT (Yeah there is a “but”), their relationship seemed too easy for the little bit of background information I had. Heath avoided commitment, why? And why was it that he could slide almost effortlessly into a relationship with Ally? How about Ally, she had a “no-go” when it came to doctors yet she was okay with Heath with little to no conflict? It was a little too insta-love for me which I have a hard time believing no matter what the case is. The one thing I will say is that even though this series is the more sexier side to Melissa Foster, there’s still a lot of romance. Heath and Ally do fall in love and there’s a romantic ending that I wouldn’t change for anything, it’s just that their relationship is also based on the physical chemistry they have. I personally love this sexier series because it doesn’t take away from the romance.
Narrator Robert Ashker Kraft does a great job bringing the edgier atmosphere to life, thanks to the way he reads the book I had no trouble envisioning scenes and falling into the story. Kraft also narrated the first book in the series and I found that having the same narrator was a bit comforting to me. I was already familiar with Kraft’s voice so there wasn’t any adjustment period and I could just jump into the story.
Final Verdict: Overall, the second book in the Wild Boys After Dark series was a fun, sexy read. I would have liked to know more about Heath and Ally but what I did know I liked. Also, I'm LOVING the new covers!! Yummy!
