Blog Tour, Review, Excerpt, & Giveaway! Wild Nights by Tina Wainscott

Wild Nights
The Justiss Alliance  #3
By: Tina Wainscott
Releasing: Nov 4th, 2014


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.

The only commitment Saxby Cole has ever made is to the SEALs. He follows a long line of Southern charmers who swear monogamy isn’t in their blood. He’s never met a woman who made him want to swear his allegiance—until, while undercover for a Justiss Alliance assignment, he finds a woman who makes him think twice.

When Jennessy Shaw’s boyfriend dumps her right before their vacation to a hedonistic Caribbean resort, she goes without him to explore her wild side. Throwing caution to the wind, she propositions Saxby—only to suffer his gentle rejection.

When she wakes in Saxby’s room with no memory of the night before, Jennessy discovers his real purpose: to sniff out an operation where women like her are drugged and prostituted to resort guests. She goes from victim to his investigative partner . . . but getting too close to the sexier-than-sin Saxby may be her wildest move yet.

Review- 4.5 Stars!

This is the 3th book in the Justice Alliance series, but it can be read as a standalone. I have not read the first two, but after reading Wild Nights, I went right out and bought them!

I really enjoyed this novel. It was fast paced and full of action (in and out of the bedroom…). The story line is somewhat intense. Saxby is sent to a “wild” resort to investigate rumors of date rape. The subject is a touchy one, but the author handles is pretty well.

Despite the overwhelming topic, the author keeps the focus stays on the growing relationship between the hero and heroine. The action and storyline move the relationship along, adding to it, rather than distracting us from it.

Jennessy (can I just say how much I love that name?) is definitely a strong female lead. She has just left a long-term relationship after finding the guy she thought she would marry, cheating. She has decided to explore her “wild side” and is pushing past her comfort zone to explore what she’s been missing. When Jennessy almost falls victim to the dark schemes at the resort, she and Sax team up to discover who is behind it all.
Unfortunately, Sax in convinced that his DNA will keep him from ever being faithful to a woman. As he falls fast and hard for Jennessy, he fights even harder to convince her, and himself, that they would never work.

The heat between Sax and Jennessy is off the charts. They steam up the room from the pages of a book. Sax is the kind of guy every girl swoons over, strong, honest, and protective, a gentleman, and an alpha all rolled into one, sexy, steamy package.
I didn’t feel like the ending was predictable, but neither was I particularity shocked.  The story was well written and was very consistent. From time to time, the military jargon got a little cliché. However, it wasn’t much, just here and there.

Overall this was a great read. I loved the characters, the plot, and the love story. This book got me interested and excited for the other books in the series. That tells you just how great it was! 

“It might do you some good to let loose and get your wild on, too.” She leaned forward and touched her mouth to his, then moved back a hair. “Yes, you are definitely too uptight.” This time she kissed him fully, her arms going around his shoulders and her body leaning into his.
His arms automatically circled her waist and pulled her closer. She tasted of rum and fruit and sun-filled days. His hands splayed across her lower back, itching to squeeze her ass. When her stomach surrounded his now rigid cock, he was glad she wasn’t an athletic woman with hard abs. No, she was perfect, toned but curvy. She let out a sigh as his tongue swept across hers, exploring all of her. Her fingers slid up into his hair, brushing the back of his ear.
Oh, he wanted her. Wanted to show her just how worthy she was of loyalty, of adoration, of—screech! The sound of his thoughts coming to an abrupt halt again. He finished the kiss and forced himself to step back. Dayum, his glasses were actually steamed up.
Her cheeks flushed red with embarrassment. “I’m sorry, I thought—”
“No, I’m sorry.” He rubbed his hand across his mouth. “Believe me, I’m very sorry. I can’t . . .” let myself fall in lust with your luscious self because . . . what was the reason again? Oh, yeah, he was on assignment. And he had a line in the unlikely event that someone actually approached him. “I have a girlfriend.”
She blinked. “Oh. You didn’t mention her.”
“Callie was supposed to come with me, but she was called away on a last-minute business trip. She told me to go alone, said it would be a test of my loyalty. And you are that, for sure, but I have to back off. I hope you’ll understand.”
“Yes, of course.” Jennessy wrapped her arms around herself and turned toward the murals. “I, of all people, wouldn’t want to be the other woman.”
Sax couldn’t help but touch her arm. “I am sorry—”
“It’s okay.” She searched the road where the bus would return. “I’m glad you didn’t . . .” She merely gestured between them.
Sax nodded, feeling lower than low. She was embarrassed and no doubt felt rejected. He’d wanted to boost her esteem, not tear it down.
“I see a vehicle coming,” she said, shading her eyes. Relief saturated her voice.
This is for the better, he told himself. Now she would avoid him. Which would make it much easier to do his job.
So why didn’t he feel any better?
