I was looking for a more sexier read and just remembered about this series. The Bad Boys After Dark series by Melissa Foster is very much like her other Contemporary Romance books however, they just have a lot more explicit sex in them. It was perfect for the kind of mood I was in, especially since I sadly haven’t been reading as many Erotic Romances as I would like.

Carson was a really great hero. He was kind, lovable and passionate and I also really enjoyed the heroine, Tawny, as well. Howeve

Carson by Melissa Foster was a beautifully written, steamy and heartfelt second chance romance.

The storyline was entertaining all throughout the book, it was easy to follow, the characters Carson and Tawny were likable, relatable and watching them get their second chance at love warmed my heart.

I enjoyed watching Carson and Tawny's relationship unfold. After being apart for ten years, coming face to face again feels like time has stood still, the attraction/connection is clearly still

Talk about a steamy, hot romance! You will definitely need something to help cool you down while reading Carson. He will leave you swooning and sweating from all the male alpha-ness coming radiating off of him!

Tawny hasn't ever been able to forget Carson Bad. For two years they shared something extra special, but she ended it and ran from Carson's life, to try and save herself the heartbreak she knew she would have... or so she thought. Now 10 years later she finds herself half way around the wo

Like the most potent of perfumes or the most decadent of desserts, I'm hooked. There's something about a bad boy and Carson wears that surname like a badge of honor or a weapon of choice. His electric eyes and his dark rebel persona draw women in like a moth to a flame. The beauty of Carson is that Ms. Foster dreamed up a puzzle in need of solving. The seducer becomes the prey. Mr. Bad is about to face his toughest challenge yet. And her name is Tawny Bishop. They have a past that started with f ...more

This is the 2nd book in Melissa Fosters' Bad Boys After dark series that I've read and I can confirm what you're thinking. Yes, the Bad boys (Bad brothers) are sooo good. In this story, the lonely and brooding Carson Bad finds his life completely and pleasantly shaken up when Tawny "Tabs" Bishop comes back into his life.

The story starts off in the now, but through flashbacks we learn about Tawnys' and Carsons' college friendship/friends with benefits arrangement. Decisions are driven by lack o

Carson and Tawny have history, but someone got scared and ran away .. that's the gist of the past. Tawny wakes up one day and decides to take the bull by the horns and go after her future .. that's the gist of the present.

I've always enjoyed Melissa's stories. No matter what the trope is, her characters are fully developed and well paired. Her story-lines unfold nicely and don't leave gaps. That being said, the resolution of the past to the present was a little to quick. A little too neat .. in

Bad Boys After Dark: Carson is the third book in the series by Melissa Foster.

Carson was the gorgeous, quiet, off the charts intelligent, introspective and guarded Bad brother. Tawny Bishop was beautiful, geeky, uber independent and just as intelligent.

Carson ad Tawny were best friends and secret lovers in college. Tawny broke it off at graduation thinking they could never be more and ashamed of the secrecy. Ultimately Tawny got married and all ties were broken.

Fast forward a decade, Carson had

Tawny and Carson were interesting together. I definitely believed there was an attraction bewteen them in the past, and one that could be built on in the future. That said, I was not sure if they would have been able to get past the reasons they split years ago quite so easily.

I liked the idea that both of them still carried a torch for the other, that both of them were still drawn to one another, and that they were still both feeling

Carson was such a "feel good" story. No unnecessary drama, no strange or forced plot twists. It was straight to the point, sexy and just an all around great story.

"What happened, Tawny?"
"You, Carson. You happened."

One word to describe this book...LAWD!

I was *patiently* waiting for Carson's book because he was so mysterious.
He was the Bad brother you wanted to know better.
My goodness, he's quite amazing!

Tawny is someone you could consider your best friend.
She's sugary sweet with sass.
She's went through so much in the past decade, but she knows there is only one person to help her find herself once again.

Melissa Foster’s Carson is a sensuous, emotional and oh so romantic novel which takes place over a five -night, four -day period. The timeframe piece was very important in this second chance romance as there was a finite time for Tawny and Carson to acknowledge and resolve their feelings. I loved that author chose to have the very dominant character of Carson acquiesce and let Tawny set the pace during her visit. Caron loves Tawny deeply-she is the only one for him. He understands that Tawny nee ...more

Once again Ms Foster delivers a totally enchanting, wickedly sexy and totally fulfilling read!

The third in the Bad Boys series, we now get to understand why Carson has been so closed off and reserved - his life has been in a holding pattern, but now that he is free to fly, well he is not letting Tawny get away again!

I loved the intensity, the honesty and the guilt free happiness of these two people, clearly destined to

I absolutely love all the Bad boys but Carson is my #1 Bad boy. He is strong and sensitive but dominates in the bedroom. What is sexier than that? Carson is a little like Christian Grey but not enough to make you hate him and think that he is wet behind the ears with the whole taking control in the bedroom. He takes sexy to a whole new level.

Carson and Tawny met in college where they became lab partners. They became friends and secretly wanted each other. They dropped hints but were not able to

Carson is my first Melissa Foster book but it definitely won't be my last. What I liked about the book:

I was bowled over by the crisp writing.
The detailed scenes.
The well-developed characters.
I especially loved how the author gel the back-story and the current scenes between Carson and X together. It is seamless and flows nicely.
The chemistry between these two is sexy, flirty and combustible. I just loved this book and this author, who by the way is sure to be on my tbr from now on!

Oh Carson! He might be my favorite Bad brother! And Melissa Foster is becoming one of my go-to authors!

Tawny has lived in Paris for 10 years as a perfumer. After a failed marriage, she wants to go back and explore the chemistry she had with her BFF/turned hookup, Carson.

Carson is surprised to see Tawny, but glad, especially when he finds out she's divorced now. She's not getting away from him this time but Tawny lives in Paris, so how is that going to work out?

Holy smokes Batman
Just like that... Carson is my next book boyfriend. Carson and Tawny have a very heated relationship. Several times while I was reading the book, I had to reread the section!!! For no other reason than to experience their connection again!

I'm absolutely jealous of Tawny. I can't hide it.. Wish I was her in a few passeges.
Melissa Foster is amazing. I don't know how she keeps coming up with such strong men and even stronger women..
Looking forward to the next indulgence.
