My Kaptivating 4 Star Review
Ryder was at the top of his dancing career. After a night of celebration he is mugged and left for dead. With his dreams shattered he turns to the things that make him feel good and make him forget; Alcohol, drugs and women. No longer able to sit back and watch their son destroy his life, Ryder is given an ultimatum; Get help, get healthy, go back to school or get cut off. You know what they say, once you have hit rock bottom, the only way is up from there and another incident make Ryder see what his life has become, and he doesn’t like it one bit. With the help from a man named Case, he is able to get his life back on track.
Skylina grew up feeling unworthy, unloved and undeserving. Abandoned by the one man that was supposed to love and protect her, all she had was an abusive drug addicted mother who forced her into a life of prostitution. Hating what she has become she has learned to cope and survive. Her dreams of becoming a professional dancer slip further and further away. Her friend Cara and Jimmy believe in her and see her potential. They do what they can to help her and try to convince her to leave her mother to pursue her dreams. The question is, is she strong enough.
Fate is a funny thing. When their paths cross, the attraction they feel for each other is so explosive. For the first time in her life, Skylina feels safe and cared for when she is with Ryder but she tries to keep her distance from him.
Ryder is taken by the petite blond. She is beautiful but she is also a mystery. The thoughts he has about her when she’s around are flat out wrong, but he can’t help it. He wants her.
Both have secrets they will do anything to keep hidden. Both wanting each other like it is their last breath and both unsure of what the future will hold for them.
Ryder is a rich boy, a former dancer and now a student. He is GORGOUES, strong and smart and on a mission. A mission that has to do with his personal demons. Did I mention that when it comes to sex, he is controlling in the best ways possible. *fansselfoff*
Skylina is beautiful and plays her part well. I love that she is strong and weak at the same time. I love how innocent she is even though she isn’t. She honestly doesn’t know what it feels like to be loved and it is heart breaking. When Ryder comes into her life she is happy, scared and confused, she has never had normal.
Although their chemistry together is off the charts, they slowly learn to open up about their past. I loved that even though they have only known each other a short time, their connection and feelings for each other are rock solid.
What a FANTASTIC debut for author Emerson St. Clair. The Dirty Nights Novella series is such a fun, SIZZLING HOT, leaves you wanting more kind of books. I can’t wait to see where Ryder and Skylina end up.
