This entire story, plot, romance, everything was lukewarm at best. There was so much that just didn’t mesh for me that I kept getting pulled out of the story with a “That would so never happen!” reaction and I struggled to get through the whole thing.

The romance part was totally unbelievable for me. Even with the supposed intensity level of the situation, which there just wasn’t enough to justify the level of connection the story expects the readers to go for, I just cannot fathom any realistic

So disappointed with this book! And considering the fact that I only checked it out from the library because of the cover and wasn't expecting much, that's really bad. The premise is so incredibly good. It pulls you in. Like, the first 20-30 pages build up this really interesting story - and it's the only thing I can praise about this book. I haven't read romance in years and this was my first experience with 'military romance.' Don't think I'll be trying another.

On paper Ban Nights looked like a great read but in reality this failed to hit the spot for me. The storyline sounded pretty good but it just lacked excitement when there should have been plenty.

The writing was alright and I had no trouble envisioning or understanding anything that was going on. It was incredibly unrealistic but I expect that from these types of book so that wasn’t a problem either. The issue for me was a general lack of depth and a feeling

You owe me, Bethany.

Morgan is at her family’s cabin clearing out her dead husband’s belongings. Jack shows up on her doorstep naked and tortured. Jack’s been working undercover infiltrating a militia. His cover is blown and the militia is tracking him. Morgan gets sucked into the drama. They both end up on the run.

I enjoyed the action scenes, but really couldn’t suspend belief enough to really buy into the story. That’s sad because I always like a good survival in the woods story. So, that’s a

Well, well, well. A prime example of what a couple of plot twists can do, hidden in plain sight - and yours truly reaaaally liked that!

In the first book of Rockfort Security, we see Jack Brandt, one of said Security's members, struggling to escape from an illegal military organization, where he was tortured when its leader found out he was a spy. Beaten bloody and naked, he ends up suffering from slight amnesia outside Morgan Rains's wood cabin. Morgan is a young widow who's been going through t

I love Romantic Suspense books that feature military or specially trained heroes involved in an intrigue with a worthy opponent and where the heroine is capable. This one looked like it fit the bill when I read the blurb so I grabbed it up. And, to a certain extent it met my expectations.

The story opens with Morgan Rains, psychology prof and widow, visiting the vacation mountain cabin she shared with her husband to clean it out and sell it. She still feels a big hole in her life that her husband

Morgan Rains thought her trip to her family cabin would help her heal from the tragedy of her husband's brutal murder. When a naked, tortured, unconscious man shows up on her door step she never imagined the danger she would face.

Jack Brandt is has been working undercover for months, now he finds himself on the run for his life, his cover blown, no memory of what he discovered and at the mercy of a beautiful widower.

This is a guns blazing, fast paced, suspense filled story. The plot was engaging

Bad Nights was my first Rebecca York book however it will certainly not be the last. It started off with a bang when Morgan Rains found a naked, injured man in her yard. The edge of your seat action began on page one and continued throughout the entire story. The story was very well written with a bit of romance mixed in between conflicts.

Despite all she had been through, Morgan was well composed and seeme

I laughed out loud at several parts of this book -- which is unfortunate because this action/romance wasn't supposed to be funny. I found it not believable and not well edited. In one scene the hero is described as doing things with three hands at once. In another we find out this supposedly super secret high level security firm the hero works for has a website featuring the names and photos of its undercover operatives. As for the romance, the shallow characters go from strangers to (tepid) lov ...more

I was really looking forward to this book the cover is gorgeous, the plot sounded interesting but unfortunately I was disappointed; I didn’t like the story at all. The writing is okay, it's well written but I just had a hard time getting into the whole scenario.

I guess this is one of those books that is DNF me

Sorry, didn't like this one at all. Tried to finish it...but couldn't force myself to read the last 30 pages. I simply didn't care enough. There were just too many events I could not believe. There was very little I knew about the characters--and again, I didn't find myself caring about any of them.

Bad Nights by Rebecca York

Somehow I ended up with an unedited proof of this book. I really enjoyed the characters and the plot was amazing. I fell for all of these characters. I personally am not a huge fan of erotic, especially in this case, where it just wasn't needed. The love story was so sweet and well deserved HEA.

Bad Nights by Rebecca York drew me in with its synopsis and promise of fast-paced suspense. I enjoy romantic suspense and when you throw in a former Navy Seal as the hero I begin to drool. This was my first experience with the author and I found it to be entertaining. Three word review: suspenseful, and action-packed, with some hot insta-love.

Jack Brandt has managed to escape his captors. Waking up naked and in a stranger woman's house, isn't the most ideal of situations especially when he knows that it's only a matter of time until his captors find him. Not wanting to put the woman in danger he tries to leave her behind only to find himself saving her from the very men he left behind.

Morgan Rains had come to bid good-bye to her inheritance. The cabin left to her by her grandmother, where Morgan and her husband had many wonderful times together. Those ended 18 months ago when he was murdered. She was still in that eerie, calm mode where nothing mattered much and she just poked through her days.
Jack Brandt, on the other hand, was running naked through the forest. He had been tortured mercilessly and was on his last ounce of energy when Morgan spies something through her window

This book has lots of running and suspense. But then that makes sense since it's romantic suspense ;)

The book starts when Morgan finds a nekkid man outside in the rain. She is nice and takes him inside. Now she is careful too, I mean he is a weird nekkid man. She has compassion and common sense.

The nekkid man is Jack. He was working undercover and was found out. Ex navy seal, tough guy, good guy. Together are they, well there is suspense so you can understand that it get intense (for I reason I

“For all she knew, he could be a criminal, although she didn’t think so.
She repressed a hysterical laugh. Did she think he had an honest face? Black and blue and honest all over?”
“He was in a dark place, illuminated only by the glow from a flashlight sitting on the floor. In the dim light, he saw Morgan picking herself up.
“Shit.” He wasn’t back in Trainer’s clutches. His brain had made up that scenario when an explosion shook the house, and he fell down the ladder and blacked out.
“Morgan?” he asked in a strangled voice.
He ran a shaky hand through his hair as he thought about the short amount of time they’d spent together. “I attacked you before, didn’t I? When you first found me, right?”
“You were out of it.”
He snorted. “Don’t make excuses for me. I’m having flashbacks to that torture session.” The moment he mentioned it, he wished he hadn’t reminded himself of the pain. Grimly he added, “I’m dangerous, and you need to ditch me.”
Her answer was swift and decisive. “No. I won’t last a couple of seconds out there without you.”
