I’ve been in love with Luke Daniels since, well, forever. As his sister’s best friend, I’ve spent over a decade living in the friend zone, watching from the sidelines hoping he would notice me, pick me, love me.
I want the fairy tale and Luke is my Prince Charming. He’s tall, with shoulders so wide he blocks out the sun. He’s kind with a smile so dazzling he makes me forget everything that’s wrong in the world. And he’s only man that can make me laugh until my cheeks hurt and my stomach cramps.
But he’ll never be mine.
So I’ve decided to get on with my life and find the next best thing.
Until a Wonder Woman costume, a bottle of tequila and a game of truth or dare happened.
Then Luke’s licking salt from my wrist and telling me I’m beautiful.
Then he’s peeling off my clothes and pressing his lips all over my body.
Then what? Is this the start of my happily ever after or the beginning of a tragedy?
Previously released as “Calling Me: The Complete Series”
USA Today bestselling author, Louise Bay writes sexy, contemporary romance novels – the kind she likes to read. Her books include the novels Faithful and Hopeful and the novella series’ The Empire State Series, What the Lightning Sees and Calling Me. The novels and together the series are stand-alone although there are some overlapping characters.
Ruined by romantic mini-series of the eighties, Louise loves all things romantic. There’s not enough of it in real life so she disappears into the fictional worlds in books and films.
Louise loves the rain, the West Wing, London, days when she doesn’t have to wear make-up, being on her own, being with friends, elephants and champagne.
Promised Nights by Louise Bay was a great read, that I really enjoyed. I loved Luke, he is easily one of my favorite book boyfriends. There was so much to love about him, Louise did a great job creating the characters in Promised Nights. I felt as if I knew them rather than just reading about these characters in a book. There is something magical about an author being able to give us a sense of friendship between the reader and the characters in the book. Ashleigh was no different. I loved her, even if there were a few points where I wanted to tell her to get over her issues, in the end though, these little issues are what made her who she is and I loved it.
Promised Nights was the right kind of emotional rollercoaster. There was just enough angst, tension, humor, and heart racing moments that made this a well-rounded story. Promised Nights is a well written friends to lovers story that was enjoyable and one that I will want to read again.
