She meets Victor at a club and they quickly find they are extremely sexually attracted to one another. Monica is okay with having a temporary sexual relationship, but the more time she spends with Victor it becomes clear to her that she would like more. Unfortunately, Victor has secrets he isn't willing to share and makes it clear that he isn't able to give her a ...more

I rated "Fire In His Eyes" by M.J. Nightingale five stars because it grabbed me from the beginning and held me throughout the entire book. I found it believable and very true to life.

The characters are well developed. Monica and her sister, Ana, are quite a team. Ana is a woman on the move, typically from one man to another, and she is determined to help her sister find a man--something Monica has been avoiding for years. She had a safe, uncomplicated 'friends with benefits' relationship, but th

I had the honor of beta reading this book and it got my attention from the moment I started reading it. I only rated it 4 stars because I would have liked a little more back story on the characters and how the reacted to some things in their pasts.

this book tells a great love story about a woman who finds love after a tragic event and a guy who puts his family first and will keep every secret he can to do so. I don't want to give too much away in this review so I will leave it at that. This is

I saw an excerpt on Facebook, and that was me hooked. After a quick message to the author needing to know how long I would have to wait before I got to read it, I found I was soon counting down the days!

I have to say the rest of the book DID NOT DISAPPOINT! WOW, it was hot! It was moving! It was riviting! It was passionate! Did I mention HOT? Holy melting knickers...

Right from the start, I was hooked. I didn't want it to end, but I couldn't put it down at the same time.

This is a fabulous fast paced novel about love, rising above fears and insecurities, and accepting your loved ones – warts and all. I enjoyed this book. The main character, Monica, is a rape survivor who has put her life together. Monica is an avid runner and teacher who has broken up with her one and only boyfriend (who really was more a friend with benefits than anything else). Her sister insists she get ‘back on the horse’ and get out of her self-imposed, celibate, rut. While out at a local ...more

Ok give me a minute here to collect my thoughts......Can I say that YOU Ms. MJ Nightingale are like my new girl crush!

He has issues and is upfront about his inability to commit. He’s willing to offer Monica sex and no more. Even his time is limited. Monica agrees to his terms.

4.5 stars!! Fire in His Eyes is an unexpected and very, very enjoyable story about two very relatable people. Once I started, I literally could not out this book down! Monica is a shy teacher who meets the handsome Victor and is immediately very much attracted to the sweet and very, very sexy ex-military man. These two are normal people with normal jobs but some heavy emotional baggage. Victor makes it crystal clear from the beginning that he wants no strings attached, but his actions belie his ...more

Fire in His Eyes by M.J. Nightingale
3 out of 5
Victor and Monica’s story was not what I expected. They meet in a bar, things get hot fast- and then Victor puts on the breaks at every turn. He tells Monica that he can give her one weekend a month a maybe a day during the week. And he has secrets that he can’t share. So don’t ask. And don’t fall in love with him because he offers no promises. Monica, for some reason that I still cannot fathom, falls for the jerk.
And then we learn Victor’s secrets.

This story surprised me! In the beginning, it was about a woman who had been raped and 10 years later she’s ready to start living again. She meets Victor in a club. He’s gorgeous, sexy, and definitely not shy about telling her what he wants to do to her and what he wants her to do to him. (I’ll be dreaming about Victor for months) One night between them turns into months and the sex is off-the-charts!!! This is where the story changes a bit. There’s one problem…he has secrets. He tells her that ...more

I was pulled right into the book. The chemistry between this two is off the charts HOT.

Monica suffered a trauma when she was younger and is not very trusting of men. She had a friend she was involved with that she did trust but he moved away. One night at a bar she meets Victor. Victor knows exactly what he wants from Monica and bluntly lays it out.

Victor has secrets. He wants NO relationship but Monica believes they should be together. He is her soul mate. Can they work through the secr

This was a really great read that I did not want to put down. I totally loved it.

Monica is a thirty year old school teacher with trust issues. She's only ever had one boyfriend and didn't feel the electricity she should have felt. After a year of being on her own she is coaxed to go to a club with her sister. Here she meets Victor and her life has changed. My feelings for these two kept changing, especially Victor. I didn't like the way to treated Monica.

I really loved this book. It's one of those books you just can't put down. My emotions were all over the place. Victor and Monica seemed to be the perfect couple, but Victor's secret just would not allow it. It was a well told story and I really enjoyed where there story went, and how it showed that sometimes you never know who your perfect match might be.
