You know why I like control?" he said with venom in his voice. "Because, without it, little girls like you would get scared off."
"I'm not scared of you," I breathed.

Having read Joya Ryan's Brazen series and absolutely loving it, I jumped on the chance to read this new trilogy by her. This book was definitely very different from her other series, and if I'm being honest, very different from what I expected...and not at all in a bad way. It's an erotic, all-consuming, and emotio

Lana is a broken woman who tries every day to overcome a tragic event from her past. She’s not close with her family - her mother forgot about her when she divorced Lana’s father and her father has ignored her from the moments he remarried. While Lana only wants affection and acceptance from him, he’s a selfish man who doesn’t seem to care much about his only daughter. One night, in a bar, when her blind date doesn’t end up showing up Lana meets Jack, a dark, enigmatic man who seems to

3.5 - "Give me a number." Stars.

Joya Ryan has a writing style that entices, her characters are alluring and her story lines are absorbing. I always find myself enjoying her books even more than I thought I would, I won't lie I have high expectations of this author, because she always delivers a beautifully written story.

"I seem to find myself engaged in a game I'm not ready to quit."

Yours Tonight is no exception to the above. Lana is an unusual character in that she is independent yet vulnerabl

“It was obvious this man was all things alpha and in control. And prey or not, I was caught. And I liked it.”

This was an adult contemporary romance, featuring a girl who had been raped at 13.

Lana was a strong character, and had the sense to get out of a situation if she was feeling uncomfortable. I felt quite sorry for her and what she had been through, a

Lana knows she needs to start believing in herself and not let people walk all over her and she receives Jack’s help in order to do this. She gives Jack control in their new relationship and all the while she sees herself growing. But there are secret

Dear Yours Tonight!

I just want to say that it isn't you it's me. I felt from the beginning that this wouldn't work out. That we were too different, but I wanted to try working it out anyway. I mean, perhaps somewhere along the way we could perhaps find something in common. Perhaps I would be surprised and finding you so much better than I expected you to be.

But I'm sad to inform you that even though you throw in Callum in the story and made him a hot fireman so wasn't that enough for me.I want

Seriously, if you don't know who Joya Ryan is then I highly suggest you start one-clicking her books now. Joya Ryan has suddenly became an author on my auto one-click list. After reading a couple of her books, I became an instant fan and in her newest book, Yours Tonight she has once again hooked me with this emotional, heartfelt, sexy and captivating read. This book completely surprised me on how Ms. Ryan was able to weave an e
I just could not connect. It had everything I typical love in my love stories - two broken characters who come from tragic pasts. This did not work for me. The premise was there with the heroine and what happened to her when she was 13 years old and then you have the broken hero, who I originally thought I would love. However, the execution and then actions of the characters had me guessing everything.

This book reminds me of Fifty Shades, millionaire with a damaged past and a naive, almost-virgin young woman, but, not as good or as captivating. My main problem is Lana. She's weak and trying to be stronger but, by the end of this book, she's not really weak anymore but she certainly is not strong either, just whiny about not being strong. I can't understand why Jack, much less Cal, would fall for her. It's not like she's super smart, funny or witty. All I'm getting is that she's naive and beau ...more

This book was given to me as an ARC for an honest review. I thought this book was really well written and captured my attention immediately. The characters are complex and really grab you and won't let go. The storyline was great and flowed really well. Also the sexy times were so steamy I thought my kindle would catch fire. I didn't like how it ended with jack but I liked Cal being brought back into the picture. I won't say too much to ruin it but this book was definitely enjoyable and I can't ...more

It started promising but .. The characters didn't seem to know exactly what they want and I didn't feel the connection between Jack and Lana. I didn't like that Lana responded to Cal the same way she responded to Jack .. it made the hero seem not very special. The ending was lame .. really really lame and it made Jack lose any appeal he might have had. Overall it wasn't bad and I did enjoy it but it was disappointing. ...more

A slow beginning but half way through it picked up pace. Two strong, interesting and flawed men, Jack and Callum. The female character, Lana is finding her strength and hope. I'm intrigued to see where the sequel will take Lana's story. ...more

Don't you just love it when you come across a new author (to you anyway) and immediately fall head over heels with the writing style. Well that's what happened to me with Joya Ryan and Yours Tonight. This book is what has been missing from my TBR. It's hot, it's sexy and most of all it gives you the ride of your life thanks to Jack Powell.

Lana is living in the shadow of a life that her past has prevented her from living. That is until she unexpectedly meets Jack and her life changes for the bett

“I wanted more. Wanted to be more. Wanted that powerful heat that started with a look, a kiss, and surged through my veins, leaving me feeling hot and strong. I got a taste of that last week. I needed the heat. Craved it.”

I was asked by a good friend and fellow book lover to give this book a try. Since she and I have similar taste I figured, even though I had never read a Joya Ryan book before, why not? Now, to up the fun even more I decided to go in completely blind and not read the synopsi

Lana grew up with a screwed up family dynamics that left her broken and weary but after meeting Jack, things change for her. He seems to have given her strength to fight for what she deserves in life. But now that she’s got the feel for being treasured, she wants more. Unfortunately, Jack has his issues to sort out and not quite ready to give her what she wants.

Lana is smart and driven when it comes to her career. I liked her, and I felt bad for her and her situation. Despite the abuse from

Loved this book!! At first it was a little slow but still keep my interest. Lana and Jack both have had terrible things happen to them growing up. While Jack has learned how to take control, Lana is still struggling to learn. With the help of Jack she learns how to be stronger and to stand up for herself. While I didn't care for how Jack left things I still like him. Lana got on my nerves a little I still understood why she was the way she was. Her family are A**holes in every way.

I read this book without reading the blurb first so wasn’t sure what to expect and well I really enjoyed it but I have to say the blurb doesn’t really match the story for me oddly. It appears to be the first in a series and I am already looking forward to the next book to see how the lead character Lana fares in the next stage of her life as it has a rather quirky ending that I wasn’t expecting but on looking at the tagline again then I should have really.

When Lana Case sees her past in a bar does she run, cry or does a wall of a man hide her from her past. Jack Powell sees a situation that has him coming to Lana's side to shield her so

OMG! I am in book heaven! This story was amazing. I am a big fan of Joya Ryan, but if I wasn't this would have sealed the deal. These characters are so complex and intoxicating. They both have sordid, dark pasts and are each trying to overcome those pasts. Jack is a self made man. Raised by a father he didn't know until his mother's death at age 8, he has had to work for what he wants. Lana has a very sad and tragic past. Her father didn't believe her. He has not cared a

This book is AMAZING! This was my first Joya Ryan book, and I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised at how much the story affected me. I got so wrapped up in the story line that I lost track of time last night and ended up reading until the wee hours of the morning.

This book is beautifully written, and full of intensity that keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole way through. At times its almost as if you can literally feel the spark of sexual tension between the characters. Callum h

I was giving this as an ARC from the amazing Joya Ryan for an honest review.

From the minute you start reading this novel, you know that you are on an emotional roller-coaster. The chemistry between the two main characters hooks you from the start, the desire the urge and need for each other gets under your skin. Let's not leave out the fact that Jack is one hot main man, who knows what he wants and gets it.

This book has everything, it's raw, emotional and sexy as hell and will leave you breath

Joya had me hooked from the very beginning. Lana's character tugged at my heart and made me want to slay her dragons. Enter Jack... Sexy, dominant, powerful, with a past filled with his own darkness.

The storyline flowed so beautifully with love scenes that were beyond steamy. We were treated to lots of information on Lana and Jacks past, for which I am grateful.

I loved Cal, the wild card, and can not wait to see where he fits in with book 2.

Loved this read!

I wasn't sure exactly what to expect, I have read all of Joya Ryan's books and knew I would enjoy this one as well, but what I wasn't expecting... This series to be one of my favorites... EVER!
This is very emotionally intense, sexually charged, suspenseful roller coaster of a story between two characters.
If you loved the Crossfire Series, 50 Shades and Fixed On You then you will love this book. This book is "10-hot!".
