Ten years before Lola Winters met him on the sidewalk in front of Hey Joe, Beau Olivier signed a contract that would deliver the first millions of his future fortune. All he wanted to do was celebrate with a beautiful woman—and no strings attached.

He entered Cat Shoppe on the Sunset Strip looking for anyone, but when he saw the kitten-eared girl on the strip club’s main s

This is a super short novella. It's a retelling of events from book 2 from Beau's POV.

It's included in the set, and I am not sure it's needed to go onto book 3. It read pretty flat to me and didn't reveal any new insight into Beau or his motivations that we don't really already know: he's obsessive, controlling, feels that money can buy or excuse anything, etc

**Contains mild spoilers if you haven't read books 1 and 2 yet**

Enjoyed this novella, which is set ten years previous to the first book in the series, and told from Beau's POV.
I now get why Beau was the way he was, and why he had a point to prove with Lola - his ego was bruised from her rebuttal. So a lot more of the story has slotted into place and makes more sense to me.
This would've been better at the start of the series, but maybe that's just me!

**I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.**

Midnight is book 2.5 in the Night Fever Series. Reading book 1 and 2 are a must before reading this one, it does have spoilers, somewhat.

It's a quick read. It explains 10 years before book 2. From Beau's POV. How Beau gained his fortune and he and Lola met for the first time. It's more of an extra explanation, bonus scenes, than being critical to the full story line between books 2 and 3.

This is short read to be read after books 1 & 2. You can get this for free when you sign up for Jessica's Newsletter.

I loved getting some insight into what happened 'that night', 10 years prior. You see how it affected both Lola and Beau, separately, and what fuels his proposition 10 years later at Hey Joe.

I can't help but think this is a precursor as to what's to come in 'Night Moves'...

Wow ...Beau was one smitten kitten huh? He saw something he wanted and in true beau fashion he made it his point in life to get it. He should of known when he spent 10 getting his plan in motion that he was in love. I loved getting into Beau's head. Its a crazy, wild, and fucked up one at times, but that's Beau for you.

We finally get Beau's POV in the series, but we also learn what happened the night that put everything in motion. Ten years is a long time to hold a grudge and we to see how that happened.

Broke my heart for an overworked and underappeciated Beau and a young little Lola.

A complimentary copy of this book was sent by the author in her newsletter.
This look at Beau's early encounter with Lola wasn't as strong as I thought it's be. It didn't give you the depth of the damage it had on Beau's psyche. In fact I came away thinking 'What's the big deal?' Still Hawkins can do not wrong for me at the moment so.....

I would listen to negative reviews. I absolutely loved this series, but this short... I can’t even call it a book. It was the length of a chapter... was not worth it.

It wasn’t worth the money or the read. It didn’t add any depth to the story. Just nada. It does absolutely nothing.

I read it after I finished all the others. And it felt pointless after concluding everything. In addition to the fact that where Beau’s coming from is completely understood and covered throughout the series. It felt re

It was good to read Beau's point of view and background story. He was caught by Lola the moment her saw her but by the end of the night it had all gone south for the wrong reason. By chance Beau and Lola's paths clash ten years letter and his plan comes to play. Why did he not just remind Lola of their night at Cat Shappe rather than wasting all that money and causing them pain?
I Love how Jessica wrote the books. I was hooked from the first one till the end

I loved this novella. It was nice to take a look back at where it all began for Beau and how from there things managed to get so twisted.
He thought that everyone would bow to him and that everyone would be able to be bought once he made his millions and he was right.
I'm sad that it's over, I left reading the novella until the end. I'll take time to read this series again and I look forward to reading more of Jessica's work.

Kind of a rip off!

This little story from when the characters first met 10 years prior should have been a free addition at the end of book 4! I just felt it was another way to get money from readers!

A good prequel

This prequel gives you a little more insight to Lolas and Beaus beginning. What made their relationship so chaotic and demeaning from the beginning. A good short read.

This was a really quick read, but didn’t give anything new that wasn’t covered in books 1 and 2.

Beau's POV of when he first met Lola and what he was going through during his life at the time gives a bit more insight as to why he said and did what he did in Night Call at the end. Beau's priority has been to acquire power and money after working so hard for it that he needs to constantly feel that he is the master of the game.

This was a quick read but loved that it gave Beaus point of view. You got his side to how he got to meet Lola first time. It was nice to also get how he started his business.
