In relationships, Calisa Harper has clear rules: no expectations, no commitments, no one gets hurt. She doesn't need a diamond ring to bring her happiness. She just needs Jared. Fine, fit, and ferocious in bed, Jared is Calisa's ideal combination of friend and lover. But the no-strings status they've shared for years is about to get very tangled.

"They'd promised no commitment, and he accepted that. But he'd realized a long time ago that his life was better with her in it."

I often thought of the movie Candyman when reading this book. No lie, I wanted to say the name Jared three times and hope he would magically transform from a fictional character into a real life man in my presence!! Red and Cali are very good friends with a no-strings attachment sexual relationship but conflict begins when Red wants more. Cali comes with baggage and an

Elle Wright did a great job with this friends with benefits story. Of course it doesn’t work because both Cali and Red have feelings for each other – feelings that are deeper than just scratching a sexual itch. What I liked about this couple is their support of each other, especially Red. He was there to be a shoulder to cry on for Cali, even when they agreed they would no longer hook up and go back to being friends. (That agreement lasted all of two seconds.)

His All Night is a wonderful romance that shows Elle Wright on a deeper level. Cali Harper has an ideal situation with Jared "Red" Williams. He's her homey, lover, and friend. They have a arrangement that works perfectly. But when the tables turn and lines blur Jared is prepared but Cali fears in the worse way.

The tension, the lust and the love asserts itself in such a way that sets the tone for a very, very good romance story that fills you up and satisfies your literary palate. Elle Wright I

I'm so pleased I got the opportunity to read this second book in this Edge Of Scandal Series.
In His All Night, the spotlight is on Jared “Red” Williams and Calista “Cali” Harper. This can be read as a standalone, although to appreciate the supporting characters, especially Morgan and Red's twin sister Sydney, I recommend The Forbidden Man too.

Red and Cali think they have been careful to hide the 'friends with benefits' aspect of their platonic relationship, not realising their friends a

From Friendship to realizing you love one another!

OMG! I love this story about Jared and Cali, it was such an emotional ride, I felt like I was taking this journey with them every step of the way. It also makes you realize that I you start out as friends in the beginning it could turn in to something even more special. I definitely recommend this book. I can't wait for next book.
Nerdy Dirty & Flirty


These two have a lot to over come, mainly Calisa not being able to commit. Red and Calisa have been friends forever and his twin sister Sydney is her best friend. Knowing there was an attraction from the start, but never doing anything about it. Finally they acted on their impulses and started a "no-strings" relationship. Only thing was Cali was the only one that wanted to no-strings. Red wasn't sure when it had happened, but he wanted more and Cali didn't. He couldn't even get her to stay the n

A little different of writing style than I typically read, but I really enjoyed it! Cali and Red had a chemistry that made you want more. More sex, more cuddles, more laughter, more talking, etc. Just more of “them”. A sexy read with lessons in being a survivor no matter what life throws at you.

Calisa Harper is one tough cookie. She takes what she wants and doesn’t take any slack for it. What she wants right now is Jared Williams.

When Friendship Blossoms into Love

Calisa Harper and Jared Williams have been friends ever since she became best friends with his twin Sydney. He has always been her confidant, her sounding board, her person. And then they decided they wanted to be friends with benefits, no strings attached, able to keep personal feelings out of their "arrangement." Somewhere along the way the lines were twisted and feelings got involved. Now they are dancing around the thoughts of do we continue on or can we sto

Book two in the Edge of Scandal series is downright titillating. And emotional roller coaster which had me chuckling, crying, and wanting to smack a person or two.

Cali is fiercely independent and wants no man to restrict her, not even Red, her longtime friend with exclusive benefits. From book one I wondered how these two could’ve had such a volcanic sexual relationship, but never taken it further. Time and circumstances change all things, especially relationships.

I almost gave up on this book. It started out super hot...then sorta fizzled out and I drifted for a while (unable to emotionally connect to the characters, I think)...then it got super sweet once we truly got into the story. But that was actually my main issue with it: Not falling for the characters until about halfway through. I'm happy I didn't give up, though. I would have missed out on some truly emotionally satisfying moments.

Though this book is a part of a series, it can be a stand alon

Red I loved him, he liked to give his woman ideas, "grabbing her hips and moving her over his hardening erection, he asked, “Why don’t you hop on that and ride me like you mean it?” There are certain situations Red is calm in, "Red pulled up his pants, leaving them unbuttoned. “It’s cool. I doubt they heard us. Roc is messing with you. Every room in his place is soundproof and he did that for a reason. It’s fine. Don’t worry about it.” I enjoyed this book, it had a huge family aspect and I liked ...more

That Jared and Calisa are certainly going to give you your money's worth and twists and turns.
In continuation from a pregnant Sydney and Morgan who have moved on to Baltimore, more antics for the fab five. Kent is still in the story line as is Allina. Sydney comes home to deliver to a hot mess for her best friend Cali and brother Red. Red has a daughter we didn't see coming and Cali has a past behaviors, places and things to leave behind.

Friends with benefits love story

Thety had carried on a not so secret friends with benefits relationship for years. He was ready for more and truthfully so was she but fear from issues in her past held her back. A pregnancy scare, the unexpected arrival of the daughter he had been searching for, the early arrival of his niece her goddaughter, the death of a loved one, and the revealing of a awful secret brings them together, tears them apart and brings them together for their final happily ever a

Elle is just such a phenomenal writer. She truly knows how to bring characters to life, and this story is no exceptions. Callie and Jared (Red) are friends with benefits, but what happens when they have to deal with their true feelings for each other. This was a great book and an even greater series.

Great read

Another great read by an amazing author. I was glad when Cali realized that she was nothing like her mother. I loved how supportive Cali and Red are to their friends and vice versa. Thank you Elle for sharing. I will read the 2 remaining books.

I am a huge fan of romances with the whole best friends sibling thing is there, although I do have a bit of a preference for best friends little sister, and this book was best friends brother, but hey I like it all. There really was no secrecy element in this book, which is normally there in this theme, but it worked for the book regardless.

His All Night is a sort of cross between Friends to lovers and Second Chance/Unrequited romance.

Jared and Calisa (Cali) have known each other for a long time, they've had a no strings friends with benefits going on for a while as well. But Jared wants more and Cali is afraid to give it.

Cali had a rough upbringing, and its shaped her in many ways. Two of the major ways its molded her are that she's afraid of a serious relationship, and she doesn't want children. She's all about the carefree for

This is book 2 in the Edge of Scandal series. This book can be read as a standalone novel, however, the series should be read in order for reader enjoyment and understanding.

Jared AKA "Red" met Calisa when she became best friends with his twin sister in college. Now they are all family. Red and Calisa gave in to their attraction and made a "friends with benefits" arrangement and its not working out.

Calisa and Red both have pasts and family from their past who have hurt them. This causes problems

Jared was loving and attentive with all of Cali's constant roadblocks.. When he uncle visited out of the blue, I knew something dramatic was bound to happen next.

Reading is one of my favorite things to do. Opening a book helps me to relax, clear my mind and escape for a little while. Elle Wright was brought to my attention via a previous book that was recommended to me. I did not get a chance to read that yet but decided to try out some of her other novels. His All Night was up for request on NetGalley so I figured I would see what all the fuss was about. It is exciting to me when I discover a story that takes place in my home state.

This is the second book and a series. Mrs. Wright did not disappoint with this book. I read the first book (The Forbidden Man) and I knew that I would read anything written by this author. This story of love is amazing. Red and Cali try to fight what's meant to be, but once they finally admit that they love each other they have to fight to keep their love in tact while also dealing with life, and loss. Eventually with the support of family and friends and the love that they have for each other t ...more
