Book Review: Hold On To The Nights

Author: Karen Foley
Title: Hold On To The Nights
Publisher: Harlequin Blaze
Publish Date: November 2009
Rating: 3 Stars
Book Blurb: Graeme Hamilton: Hollywood's hottest bachelor. Lara Whitfield: his biggest fan. To the world, they're strangers. But Lara has a juicy secret... their five-year-old annulled marriage is still legal!

How should Lara break the news? Jump Graeme at a fan convention, of course...in costume! Her reward: the earthshaking sex she's been missing.

But Graeme instantly recognizes Lara's tantalizing touch. And he's got a secret, too. First, though, he's going to make his wife pay for their years apart... one shattering orgasm at a time....

Review: This book really was all about sex. Somewhere in the grand scheme of things that plot got lost and Greame and Lara just started to...go at it like bunnies. That's good if you like to read 210 pages of hot steamy sex. I don't usually feel that way. I kind of like a little more story to go along with the passion and there just wasn't enough for me.

The other thing that bugged me, was how Lara really didn't seem to care about Christopher's feelings. She just flitted off with divorce papers in hand to find her husband, who is a famous tv star, at a convention in Vegas.


She wants to end the marriage that she didn't know was still valid so she can hook up with Christopher who is safe. She also writes erotic fanfiction about the character her husband plays in a Sci-fi show.

And why does she want a divorce?

I'm not sure.

Within minutes of their meeting they are naked and doing the horizontal mambo. (Though Lara is wearing a mask) But when that comes off there isn't really a big enough explosion from either party to make the whole thing seem believable.

The characters were very likable though and that's what made reading this fun, even though it wasn't the best Blaze book I've read. It was pleasant enough to pass a few boring hours though.
