What’s the book about?
Passion knows no bounds…
Avery Ross is living a dream. After struggling all of her life to make ends meet, a chance encounter with a powerful, darkly handsome man has catapulted her into a dazzling new world of penthouse luxury, elegant parties, and a wild, consuming passion with her billionaire lover, Dominic Baine. Nothing is out of his reach in business or in pleasure, yet the only woman he wants is her. Nick sweeps her to sensual heights she has never dared explore, commanding her body the same way he commands her heart. Yet Avery knows the fantasy she’s living cannot last.
With dark secrets and a dangerous enemy haunting her past, Avery must find a way to trust Nick with the truth before it destroys everything they share. But Nick is harboring secrets of his own as well. And when they come to light, Avery will be forced to decide if the love she feels for Nick is strong enough to endure a betrayal she may never be able to forgive.
For 100 Nights is the second installment in the 100 Series trilogy and picks up where For 100 Days left off with the heroine, Avery, committing to 100 nights with the hero, Nick. Nick is now aware of quite a bit of Avery’s background but knows she’s still holding things back. Vice versa, Avery gets to delve more into Nick’s background and discover what made Nick the man he is.
The two characters still have a long way to go in their relationship with the secrets they still keep but they’re building a life together as best they can during the agreement they’ve reached. The agreement being that they’re basically in a committed relationship without the label for 100 nights; however, neither character wants to vocalize about the period after the 100 days is up.
As I mentioned in my review of For 100 Days, this book is where more of the action takes place. The characters continue to grow, especially Avery with her art and ability to open up to people, and there is more drama relating to Avery’s background. The villain of this book shows in the form of a flash from Avery’s past and Avery must work out how to remove this particular obstacle from her life. To be honest I have mixed feelings on how the issues with the villain was handled. I liked that they kept some legalities in place but I also felt like it was wrapped up very quickly. I would’ve liked a little more detail into what happened after it all went down.
Other than that, I still enjoyed Lara Adrian’s writing as always and liked the surprise twist she added. Be warned: it is a cliffhanger so make sure you have book three lined up!
