Nights with Parker

3.85  ·  Rating details ·  208 ratings  ·  48 reviews
Oliver Parker is a narcissistic a$$hole—vain, self-absorbed, conceited, and egotistical.
And those are his better qualities.
He takes what he wants, and he wants me.
Only, I don’t want to be had. Not ever and not by him.
When fate puts the hotel heir in the perfect position to get his way, my only choice is to give him what he wants.
But I'll spend my nights with Parker

O-M-G (Look at that. I've had two O-M-G books in the same 24 hour period) this book was bloody AWESOME

Oliver Parker is one handsome and conceited son of a b!tch. He is also one of the heirs to the Parker Hotel chain. He's sent to Savannah, Georgia by his father to check out one of their recent hotel acquisitions. A stop for a bite to eat brings him into contact with a waitress named Riley. When she doesn't fall at his feet like he is used to, he's sees it as a challenge he can't refuse. He pers

➳The summary hooks you in...
Makes you curious as to what this Parker guy has for the reader to read...
Well, the synopsis does not do its justice to the story, because Oliver Parker is one arrogant a**hole, who you slowly learn to adore! (Ironically speaking...)

➳Okay, okay... so the prologue did not do it for me. Woah, what an arrogant piece of sh** Oliver Parker is. He portrays it, but also freaking embraces that attitude. As if he is proud of that personality. Arrogant am I right? Oh well,
2.5 Stars

Overall Opinion: Well, sadly this one just didn't work all that well for me. I typically enjoy the as$hole to hero type stories, but I had huge issues with the H causing the separation between him and the h and his behavior afterwards (view spoiler)
I absolutely hated Oliver at the beginning of this book. He was so awful - he was arrogant, conceited and selfish. I thought there was no way I was going to end up liking his character but once the true Oliver started coming out, I understood him more. By the end of the book I was really rooting for him. I really liked Riley from the beginning and the two of them together were hot! There were some super good steamy scenes in this one! I really loved this book and can't wait to read whatever this ...more

Cute, Quick read. Innocent, down-on-her-luck girl meets entitled, rich boy with an attitude... you know the story. It was sweet, predictable and a quick read.
I've decided I really love how this author writes her characters. Oliver is a manwhore and owns it, no apologies given. He's an absolute arsehole, owns that too, again with no apologies given.

Cue Riley, a sweet and gentle but strong woman and sit back an watch said arsehole-manwhore unravel and have his epiphany. I seriously had a "squee" moment going on and I hate that word normally.

Loved this latest book from Alice, just as I've loved Pieces of Him which was fan-freaking-tastic. Gawd but I lo

I just love when a cocky asshole of a hero gets knocked to his knees but a smart, sarcastic, sassy woman and that is exactly what we get in Nights With Parker. What we also have is a book that deals with some hard topics and learning from them. Nights With Parker is a fun and sexy book but I also liked how the author takes those hard topics and works them into the storyline and makes them not front and center but

"Oliver Parker is a narcissistic a$$hole"

And we get proof of that from page one.

I could have done without the Prologue showing how Oliver uses and discards women.
What bothered me was the way Oliver insinuated the woman he slept with was a whore.
I find that offensive.

You slept with someone, you want to get rid of them the second the sexual act is over, that’s fine, but there are ways to that that don’t demean women.

The story itself is well written. Oliver goes to Georgia to oversee one of the hot

Alice sure knows how to make you feel the books she writes. I wasn't surprised about the level of cockiness of Oliver and how an asshole he was, I was really frustrated and I didn't want to like him.

To put you in a little of context, Oliver is the heir of his father's company and he's sent to Savannah, GA to check a hotel that is now their property, soon he finds the unexpected, a woman who doesn't surrender easily to him and makes him understand he is not entitled to have the world in his hand

Another great book by Alice!! Nights With Parker is the story about Oliver. Poor little rich boy, who spends his days running a hotel business with his family, and his nights hopping from bed to bed of faceless women. That is just who Oliver is. He doesn't do commitment or even bother learning women's names.

Oliver is sent to Savannah to work on his newest hotel. There he meets Riley. She is sweet, kind and caring. She has big dreams, that have taken a backseat to help her mom after her fa

"You make it sound so easy."
"It's not. But nothing worth having is ever easy."

*swoons with a heavy sigh* Oh Oliver!

I sure loved every single second of my night with Parker!

As with every book I've read of Alice's (and that's every single one), I fell in love, yet again. Again, she's managed to execute the story perfectly. The writing is captivating and takes hold of you from the bringing. Then story line and build up was addicting making me want to never stop reading. The characters were dreamy

Meh. Not sure what gained this one high marks. Parker's a jerk, eventually he turns it around but pulls another jerk move near the end. Couldn't see what there was to love here. Wasn't a Riley fan either. She gives up her virginity way too easy to someone who's blackmailing her. Parker's dad tells her Parker is engaged at one point and she's so upset she has sex with Parker soon after before telling him what she's heard. WTH? Would have thought that warranted an explanation first. Couldn't reall ...more

Not even going to lie I did not like Oliver at all in the beginning but by the end I was definitely cheering him on.. He puts on a good show of being the arrogant rich bachelor but the underlying pain and self doubt was heartbreaking. .. Riley is the innocent southern girl who knows she should stay away from him but she cant help being drawn to him even knowing that he will probably destroy her in the end... The chemistry between them was steaming up my kindle... I absolutely loved this book...

This was a cute quick read about a fool and a naive girl. It was predictable and rushed at the end but it is a good in between book to read.

I just finished reading Alice Tribue’s Nights with Parker and I am smiling SO hard.

Currently I am ultra fan-girling to the point where I nearly want to dance around the room.

I adore love stories that start off with a character that you love to hate but end up falling madly in love with by the time that you have finished the last word of t

I hated this book. I don't usually use the word hate to describe books because I can only imagine how hard it is to not only write a book but also get it published.. But I really hate this book. I was hoping for a steamy romance between a normal girl and an entitled, rich businessmen and maybe along the way the she might to be able to change him and they would have their happy ending. I kinda got that. To be honest, I don't ever say this about books (I'm not one to get easily offended), but I wa ...more

Wow! Just amazing. It’s like Indecent Proposal meets Pretty Woman!

Oliver is an asshole to women. From the first page - total asshole! He uses women for sex and doesn’t apologize for is asshole’nes when he kicks them out or leaves them 3 minutes after he’s done with them. He’s left a string of pissed off women all over the globe.

Work sends him south for a couple months. His version of hell. This might just be the best thing that’s ever happened to him. Riley is sweet and innocent and just an amaz

Nights with Parker by Alice Montalvo-Tribue is a wicked little story that I couldn't help but devour from the get-go. Oliver is such a complete asshole almost all of the time - even towards Riley but getting his POV as well as Riley's is a bonus as you learn he is that way so he can stay closed off from the dangers of falling in love.

The constant back and forth between Oliver and Riley is endearing. As a reader I appreciated that she wasn't just going to come hither whenever he crooked his finge

I’ve got one huge problem with this novel. And some smaller ones.

Let me start out with the BIG one:
What this novel basically says is: Non-consent and rape are two entirely different things. And god, that is sooo wrong on soo many levels.
So, please be aware of some spoilers!!!
Okay, we’ve got Oliver, a seemingly ruthless hotel manager who has been sent to Savannah to make a hotel great again (yeah, that’s intended). Then there’s Riley, a seemingly shy waitress whose life has been on hold since her

Nights with Parker is my first book by Alice Tribue, and it certainly won’t be my last. The characters the story, the pacing, and the writing are fantastic.

Oliver Parker is everything readers love-to-hate in a character. He is arrogant, rude, and disrespects women, but plays it off as saving them from heartache. Riley is a sweet, small-town girl, but she has no problem putting Oliver in his place when needed. And as a reader, there is nothing I loved more than watching this to

I'm going to start with letting you know how much I hated Oliver Parker at the beginning of this book. Completely loathed him as a human being. I don't even remember the last time I've felt that way about the leading male. I just kept praying for some silver lining to his behavior like for the first 30% of the book. Who am I kidding? Of course I fell in love with him throughout the book! This is an Alice Tribue book we're talking about!

Janett The Pleasure of Reading Today
In true Alice Tribue fashion this is a well written book, with an interesting plot that included a bit of angst, blackmail, and undeniable desire from a self proclaimed manwhore for a waitress he meets while on a work assignment.

Oliver Parker pissed me off, there's not other way to go about it. His behavior, especially towards Riley at the beginning of the book, was deplorable. But little by little we start seeing another side of him, we start understanding why he is the way he is and why he act

I loved this book! Deception, blackmail, lust, oh my!! Throw in some hot, steamy scenes and Parker has a little bit of everything!

Oliver is a self proclaimed manwhore and he's ok with that. He makes no apologies and all the women that rotate in and out of his bed know the score. He just wants to relieve a little stress after a long day.

All Riley cares about is helping to take care of her mother. She's sweet and innocent and she just wants to do what she can to make life a little easier. But sh

I know I probably shouldn't have but I liked him but I have to admit that Oliver Parker is now a firm BBF favourite of mine!!! Yeah, to begin with he was a total git; he was rude, had an ego the size of one of his family's hotels, was self centered and full of it but as the story went on he totally grew on me! The more we saw of him and found out about his place within the family and business, the more you could understand why he was initially the way he was!

Riley was fab. True to herself until
