The sex in this novel was great. Super hot. Love angst? Plenty of it. So what was the problem? Based on those two aspects, you would think you'd have a recipe for a successful romance novel, but nope, couldn't be more wrong.

The author's note said that she wanted to write a story about two people who clearly were right for each other, but needed the time to figure it all out. But you know what? After reading the entire book, I actually don't think they're right for each other. I don't think they'

This is one blazing hot book and I loved it Tawny writes such awesome stories Jason and Larissa were so made for each other. Loved the theme of being locked in a mall and no elecrticity for the night candles and chocolate set the scene.
Judy & Marianne from Long and Short Reviews
What does a giant koteka, painted on chocolate and guilt have in common? A man and a woman who fell in love so fast they forgot a few basic ingredients to a relationship and have a second chance to get it right.

I liked how the author introduced each character at their current point in their lives. I found it interesting that although these two people crossed paths before and went their separate ways, like a boomerang, they’re coming full circle. But have they learned anything at all in the inte

Just for the Night by Tawny Weber
* I received this ARC free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Just for the Night finds Larissa and Jason locked in a high end mall all night with nothing but each for company. Larissa is meeting with Conner about the last retail space he has in the mall attached to his new hotel. She wants that space to open a romance store and she has convinced herself this is just what she needs to get over her ex-finance.

Jason has flown in to meet with the owners

Current Harlequin authors seem to focus on communication more. I truly appreciate this. What I really love about romance novels is the exploration of human behavior. Larissa has been hurt by Jason in the past. At the present time, the only thing these two having going for them is excellent sex. They were almost married but he accused her of cheating and she didn’t defend herself because he should trust her. The author does a great job of showing how we go wrong in relationships. We don’t communi ...more

I tried to read this. I really did. I even made it through half the first chapter.

But that's pretty much where it ended.

Maybe it's because the writer is too wordy... no, no that's pretty much it. The writer is obnoxiously wordy. She talks and narrates so much that it slows down the pace of the story. I want to read a good story that keeps a good pace between action and dialogue. She doesn't do this well.

In fact, she doesn't do it at all. She's taking so much time describing and explaining where

I had a hard time with the book blurb, because it didn't match my expectations for the storyline. Usually this is a problem typical of the cover image, but at least that got the curly-headed Larissa down pat. All in all, however, an enjoyable book about second chances.

This is at least the second Tawny Weber romance I've read, and it's a great read. It is part of the 24 hour blackout miniseries, which I love.
