Review: Just For The Night by Tawny Weber

Just For The Night is part of the 24 Hours: Blackout series by Tawny Weber and a Romance from Harlequin Blaze.

Book Blurb:

Things to Do in a Blackout...

Power outages happen, and you have to be prepared.  After all, you could be trapped somewhere - like in an empty store - with your ex.  Who is still irresistible.  And hot.  And who knows how to make the most out of a dark situation.

Checklist for: Larissa Zahn

* Food
*First aid kit (With condoms.  Be prepared.  Very, very  prepared.)
*Someone you’re still overwhelmingly into (Jason Cantrell, I’m looking at you.)
*Plenty of time in the dark ( Read: hot nookie.  Lots of it.)
**The ability to walk away without regrets in the morning...(Uh-Oh!)

24 Hours: Blackout
No lights.  No power.  And no holding back...

My thoughts:

Larissa Zahn is pursuing her dream.  She wants to open her own store - a store for Romance.  Movies, books, music, candles, lingerie - all things meant to evoke Romance.  So what if her own love life is in the dumps?

Hoping to snag the last available vendor spot in a new hoity-toity hotel, Larissa gathers everything she needs to make her presentation for ‘Isn’t It Romantic’.  She is crossing her fingers that knowing the owner will make her a shoe in for the spot.

Jason Cantrell and his brother run their own business:  Can-Do Adventure and Jason is looking to expand the business by tying in to the new hotel that has come to town.  He is on his way to a meeting with the owner, who happens to be an old friend of his brothers.  He is sure to get the available spot.

Larissa and Jason have a history and they did not part on the best of terms.  When they realize that they are both vying for the same vendor space - tempers flare and sparks fly.  

Just For The Night is a fun, quick read.  I really enjoy Ms. Weber’s writing: her characters are easy to relate to, the dialogue witty and charming and the story steamy. :)

I give Just For The Night 4 out of 5 stars.
