His All Night by Elle Wright – Review & Giveaway

 

His All Night by Elle Wright

In relationships, Calisa Harper has clear rules: no expectations, no commitments, no one gets hurt. She doesn’t need a diamond ring to bring her happiness. She just needs Jared. Fine, fit, and ferocious in bed, Jared is Calisa’s ideal combination of friend and lover. But the no-strings status they’ve shared for years is about to get very tangled.

Jared Williams is the kind of man most women long for: sexy, successful, and ready to settle down. He knows convincing the commitment-phobic Calisa that forever is nothing to fear won’t be easy—especially when his ex turns up with a daughter she never told him about. In a heartbeat, Jared and Calisa’s passion goes from fiery to fragile. He wants to hold on to the love they share but is terrified that their next night together could be their last.

“Why don’t you get rid of the stiff and come up to my room?”
Tempted as she was, Cali wasn’t going out like that. “No,” she breathed, suddenly feeling very…hot. “I have a date.”

Slowly, Jared edged closer to her. She retreated until the hard doorknob dug into her back. Reaching behind her, he flipped the lock on the door, the click echoing in the empty bathroom. Sucking in a deep breath, she waited, anticipating his next move.
His fingers flitted across the hem of her dress and he inched it up a bit. Kneeling down, he slipped his hands under her dress and slowly pulled down her underwear. She held her breath, wondered what he would do next.

“Step out of them,” he ordered in a low, deep voice.

Bracing her hands on his shoulders, she stepped out of her lace panties. With a smirk, he stood up, tucked the thin material into the inside pocket of his suit jacket, and pulled out a tiny key card. He placed it in her hand and closed her fingers around it. “Room 1179,” he murmured, his lips a mere inch away from hers. Closing her eyes, she took in the smell of cognac on his breath and leaned closer.
His soft laugh brought her mind back to their location and she opened her eyes. She opened her mouth to speak, but he placed a finger over her lips.

“Shh. Try not to think about what I’m going to do to you, while you’re on your date.” Swinging open the door, he walked out, whistling.

She hated him—in the best way.

“They’d promised no commitment, and he accepted that. But he’d realized a long time ago that his life was better with her in it.”

I often thought of the movie Candyman when reading this book. No lie, I wanted to say the name Jared three times and hope he would magically transform from a fictional character into a real life man in my presence!! Red and Cali are very good friends with a no-strings attachment sexual relationship but conflict begins when Red wants more. Cali comes with baggage and an “I can take care of myself” mentality, so reading how Red loved her while she worked through her stuff was heartwarming.

Wright does a perfect job of bringing the sexual heat, drama, laughter, and the underlying theme of having unconditional love from friends and family. Oh, and I really liked Morgan from the previous book in the series, but I LOVED Jared in this one!!

This is my favorite romance novel of 2015!!!

Elle Wright

As a little girl, I loved to be holed up in my room creating stories with my Barbie Dolls. There was no subject I didn’t tackle. It was always my dream to write a soap opera. As I grew older, I assumed that dream was just that… a dream.

Born and raised in Southeast Michigan, near Ann Arbor, my mother always instilled in me the importance of reading. There was never a time when I wasn’t going to read, in the process of reading, or just finished reading a book. It was also my mother who, later on in my life, gave me my first romance novel: Indigo by Beverly Jenkins. From that moment on, I became a fan of Ms. Jenkins for life and a lover of all things romance.

I’m living my dream now.

What has been the most surprising and upsetting part of your literary journey?
For me, the most surprising part is that I love interacting with readers. I’ve always considered myself the “shy” one. From a young age, I felt like I couldn’t really speak to people I don’t know. Through this journey, I’ve found out that I’m not that shy. LOL It’s a welcome surprise because it’s also helped me in other areas of my life.
As for the upsetting part…I’d say the rude people I’ve encountered. I try to let stuff roll off my back, but it’s hard at times.

Set the mood for us…when you’re writing, you have to…
The first thing I do when I write is set up my book playlist. That is, I make my own soundtrack for each book I write. I use that soundtrack while I’m writing or plotting. I have to listen to music or something in the background. Quiet stifles my creativity. I also need something very cold to drink and a snack sitting next to me. Sometimes it’s popsicles, other times it popcorn.

When you’re not writing, what authors do you enjoy reading? What are you currently reading?
Well, I have a few authors that I always want to read: Beverly Jenkins, Christine Hughes, Kennedy Ryan, Sheryl Lister, Lutishia Lovely, Nora Roberts… to name just a few.
Currently, I’m reading My Soul To Keep by Kennedy Ryan and listening to Love After War by Cheris Hodges

If you had to write your life story, what would the title be? How does that title portray your story?

Hmm… I actually know the answer to this. I always said if I were to write my story the title would be “Today, I have no regrets.” I figured that by the time I got enough courage to write my own story, I’d have no regrets. LOL I’m almost there. I really have so much to be thankful for. If I were to write it today, it might say “Today, I only have a few regrets.” But I’ll get to the “no regrets” part.

What are three things readers might be surprised to learn about you?
-I LOVE Investigative Discovery Channel. If I were to start college all over, I’d probably be a criminologist or a forensic scientist/nurse.
-I am a flautist. I’ve won awards and everything. Even went to Band Camp a few times.
-I met my husband when I was 17 years old and we both worked at the local movie theater as ushers. I knew then I would marry him. Years later, after a few “others”, we fell for each other.

Once you type “The End,” how do you celebrate?
A Margarita on the rocks, salt on the rim. Just kidding, I sleep and clear out my DVR. The margarita comes later, after all the edits and stuff are done.

Why do you think your writing matters?
I think creativity matters. It is my saving grace, to be able to delve into another world. Everyone should have that opportunity considering all the many things going on around us. I like to write books that are real; books that make the reader cry or yell or want to throw the book against the wall. I love to make people laugh because I feel like it’s important to laugh through your pain. I love writing characters that people identify with. I hope that I can bring out all the emotions in my work.

What can your fans look forward to next?
Well, book three in the Edge of Scandal series is coming in April of 2016. Her Kind of Man is Kent and Allina’s story. After that, I’m definitely not done with the characters. A few of them will pop up in other work. I’m also working on a romantic suspense series, plotting it out and a secret project.

Thank you again for allowing me to interview you on Reading in Black & White. Are there any last words for those who are reading this interview?
First, I want to say it’s been so awesome getting to know you, and I appreciate everything you’ve done for me! #TeamElle.
And I want to thank the readers who’ve emailed, posted, or shared anything about Edge of Scandal. I appreciate the support. Hope you enjoy Jared and Calisa’s story. And if you haven’t already, give Morgan and Sydney (The Forbidden Man) a try. I love these characters and I hope you will too!
