What happens when a one night stand, doesn’t stay just that?

Out for the first time after a long term relationship, Isabella wasn’t expecting much except a good time with the girls. A one night stand wasn’t in the cards, until she met him.

Graham is damaged both physically and mentally by a past that refuses to let him go. When he sees Isabella for the first time, she wasn’t at all what he was expecting.

One night. No regrets. That’s all it was supposed to be. But fate has different plans. 

This is a three part serial series of hot sexual encounters and conflicting emotions. Their journey to their happily forever after will be a hard one, but so worth it.


Hot Houston Nights Part 1 was a hot, sexy and thrilling read from start to finish.  I wish, wish, wish that this book was longer, because I loved everything about it.  I didn't want to see it end.  But then again, since it is a novella series, I am eagerly awaiting for Part 2!!!  Everything drew me in to this story.  It had an interesting plot and the characters were well developed.  The characters were my favorite part of the book.  I came to adore Graham and Isabella.  Even though this was a quick read, nothing was rushed about it.  Thank gosh.  There were no immediate I love you's or anything of that nature.  This story had substance and the characters had depth.  Their feelings and reactions were real.  I also loved has the story was told through both Graham's and Isabella's POV.  I was able to be inside both of their heads understanding who they were more.  I was able to connect with them on a deeper level.

Isabella goes out dancing with her friends.  She isn't quite like her friends though.  The dress to extremes trying to land men while she dresses to disappear.  But that is what caught Graham's attention.  Graham has had a horrible past and had a scar on his face to prove it.  Being with other women was tough, because the scar was all that they could see.  Until Isabella.  She saw beyond the scar to the wonderful man that Graham truly was.  I loved that about her.  Graham was the same way.  They both saw the inner beauty as well as the outside beauty.  That their imperfections are what make them truly beautiful.  Graham and Isabella both agree to a one-night stand arrangement since neither of them have been with anyone in a long time.  Well, that one night stand stirred feelings in both of them that neither could shake.  They each wanted more.  The questions is, will they fins each other to see if that is even possible?

Hot Houston Nights Part 1 was a fantastic story from start to finish.  I honestly couldn't put this book down once I started it.  Everything about it intrigued me.  Even the hot, steamy scenes were crafted beautifully.  I loved how the author weaved it all together and how it all unfolded was well thought out. The ending of this book definitely left off with a cliffhanger or two that definitely left me wanting more.  I can't wait to see where the author takes this story based on the last few chapters.  I can't wait to see what happens with Graham and Isabella.  I really am rooting for them!!!  I will definitely be rereading this book!!!  Hot Houston Nights is a MUST read!!!!!

Men never seemed to fall over me like that. Except Christopher. Definitely a mistake getting with that guy. I know that now, but it was a bigger mistake thinking I could come here and act normal and have some random, hot guy wanna dance with me. Freaking pathetic.

I was almost off the dance floor when firm hands hooked into my two side belt loops from behind and brought me against a firm body.

“Need a dance partner, sweetness?”

Holy cow. The guy behind me was nothing but broad muscle and strong hands. He had two fingers hooked in my loops and the other three long fingers I felt on my pubic bone, and they pressed me against his thighs. His body was hard behind me and it was like my whole body lit up.

He must be taller than me. Well, everyone was, but the average guy was only five feet ten inches. Maybe six foot, but when they were behind me, I felt their groin. Not this man. I felt the thick steel rod almost at the middle of my back.

“Damn, sweetness. I hadn’t realized you were so tiny compared to me.”

His lips skirted passed my earlobe, nipping the edge between his teeth.

Fuck. Me. That little bite sent a sexual bolt of lightning straight down my body until it hit my core. I felt my pussy tighten with arousal. Sweet mother, that voice could rattle cages.

“Yeah, well, don’t judge a book by its cover, buddy.”

“Hmmm...I'll have to remember that, sweetness. For now, let's dance."

Crap. I had no rhythm. At all. Stella was the one who made me look halfway decent.

"Uh. No, but thanks anyway. I should just go back to the bar and have some drinks."

"Please don't. And don't be afraid when I say this, but I was watching you up here and noticed you weren't comfortable. I can make you feel real comfortable, sweetness. Just one dance."

The song that was playing was fast and I had no idea what to do. 

"This songs almost over. Don’t worry.”

The song finished shortly after he said that and 'Skin’ by Rihanna came on.

Double crap. I couldn't dance to this song with a stranger. It was a sex song.

"Is that a blush? Fucking beautiful."

His body began to move against mine, rocking my body and he took a hand and swept the stray hair that had come undone to the side. He dipped and his lips met the groove of my shoulder and I could smell his heady scent fill my nostrils. It was intoxicating. Sensual with a hint of musk and man.

His hands skimmed down and feeling his work-rough hands touch the bare flesh of my shoulder sent tingles throughout my body. Making me feel hyper alert. Gooseflesh sprinkled across my skin and his hands outlined the sides of my breasts which were starting to feel heavy. His hands slowly went down far enough to caress my thighs.

Holy mother, my pussy was aching from his touch. His thumbs hooked between my jeans and silk panties.

Teasing me with unhurried precision. His fingers massaging circles into the pockets…so close to the hood of my already damp vagina.

My head fell back and his breath was hot against my neck.

A small moan escaped my lips and his fingers got bold and traced the zipper seam down and gently circled my clit. It was light and was gone before I could do anything except let out a small cry.

The small orgasm raced through me from the contact and it was enough to make my body mold and press into him. Hits fingers contacted on mine and he groaned against my neck

“Was that?”

I couldn’t help but nod yes. And the dance became more intimate as he moved my body with his. He tucked his body down just enough for me to feel the hard ridge life his shaft against the cleft of my rear.

I really wanted to see his face now. The first man to make me come just by mere proximity.
