Trust. Honor. Family.

I wake up naked in bed with my best friend’s little sister and I have no recollection of what happened. After we go our separate ways, she soon ends up on my doorstep with nowhere to go in the middle of the night and I let her stay with me until she gets her own place.
I tell myself that nothing can happen by burying myself in work and that I fight to i

The Night Manager is a great entertaining story with great characters! Jacks and Cam are so cute, you can’t help but fall in love with them. I love Tarrah Anders writing and can’t wait to read what’s next!

After reading Stripped I was not only hooked on these characters but on this author. The Night Manager not only gives us Jacks' story but it gives us more on Mal and Beck. This is a best friend's sister romance and one that is a little different. Jacks and Cam's story is one about loyalty to not only each other but the family unit. As these two characters navigate their way through starting a relationship they come across a few hurdles with truths needing to be revealed, the hours that Jacks wor ...more

The Night Manager by Tarrah Anders was sweet and enjoyable; I have been waiting for this book since I finished reading STRIPPED. Who doesn’t love a good wedding hook-up and best friend’s little sister romance? This book will have you laughing out loud and steam coming from your kindles.

Jacks and Cam are adorable together and I can’t get enough of them. Jacks is all alpha male behinds closed doors and sweet when he wants to be, plus he has the accent, SWOON! We got to see more of Mal and Becks an

I loved this book! It had everything I need in a romance. Forced proximity, older brother’s friend, one-night-stand-turned-something-more, lots of super hot sexy time and a few surprises thrown in for good measure! Ms. Anders has created a super fun world filled with Aussie strippers in Vegas and the girl squad who loves them. I loved the commitment to Aussie-isms too. This book was funny, sweet, sexy and well written! Bravo!

The Night Manager is the first book by Tarrah Anders and it's not going to be the last! It's a fun, sexy romp in Vegas for this former stripper now a club owner. Jacks owns a male/female revue club in Vegas with Mal. They are both former male strippers and Mal and his wife Beck are the only family and close friends that Jacks has in his life. He made what he feels is a huge mistake by having a drunken wedding hookup with Mal's little sister Cameron after Mal's wedding to Beck but now it's weeks ...more

The Night Manager by Tarrah Anders is a romance novella. This story is about how a hook up with your best friend’s sister, at his wedding, turns into a hot, unexpected relationship. Jack is a co-owner and night time manger of the The Essentials club in Vegas, along with his best friend Malcolm and wife Beck. After Malcolm’s and Beck’s wedding, through a drunken haze, Jack wakes up to a beautiful blonde next to him, which happens to be Cameron, Malcom’s li

I have been patiently waiting for this book to be released. Jacks was first introduced in STRIPPED and I think it would helpful (yet not necessary) to read it first as it gives some important background information.

The author lists STRIPPED and THE NIGHT MANAGER as novellas, yet the way they are written truly feel like full bodied novels.

Jacks is best mates with Cameron's brother and we all know that "best mate's little sisters are off limits". Yup, we sure do know that ~wink~.

And I love Cam she's perfect and sweet with a, sexy edge to her. And oh how I love Jack's dominating personality and sexual style. And the fact that he's Aussie makes him even sexier.

Rated 5 stars

This is a great story! I enjoyed so many things about it. The relationship between the two main characters. It’s complicated but yet there are many sweet moments. The book provided some laughter, snickering and one “I’m stunned” moment along with a few wet eyes. Let’s not forget about the sexy moments of dating a former “dancer”. Woo hoo! I enjoyed the things about the characters that showed they were from Australia! Plus I liked it wasn’t a random

So I started this book off and knew right away I was missing something. Cameron and Jacks are already in bed together and they are already in the middle of something. I apparently needed to read the first book Stripped.

So anyway, I felt right away that I was missing something but I continued to read this book. But I was still not getting into this book. I couldn't connect with Cameron or Jacks as a couple. I only got about 25% into the book and had to stop.

Fun quick angsty treat! Love the “best friend’s sister” trope! Jack and Malcolm are super close and consider each other family...then the drunken night happens & he finds little sister Cameron in his bed. Annnnnd go! Lol, hiding/avoiding both each other and their feelings. Oh the angst & anxiety of getting caught! Engaged throughout, kept me on the edge. Loved it!

What a fun, sexy, and relatable novella! In true Tarrah fashion this featured all the elements I’ve grown to love from her. The plot, characters, and realness were all on point! Bonus I was googling some fun Aussie lingo along the way. This story opens up after post wedding one night stand. We learn it’s Jacks, a former “dancer” and his best friends little sister Cameron. The two go their separate ways, but find themselves living with one another. A game called “avoid like the plague” begins and ...more

I loved watching Jacks struggle with his Bro Code and his desire to be with Cam while he tried to leave her alone in respect to her brother, which makes his inevitable lack of restraint even more fun!

The Night Manager by Tarrah Anders is a romance story that will keep you reading until the end. This is not my first book by this author but it is my favorite of hers. Her writing style such as that she pulled me right into her story from the first word. She made me feel as if I was right there with her characters. Her characters are both connectable and lovable. They took me on an emotional roller coaster ride including compassion. This is a story about falling in love with your best friends si ...more

Well, I must start off by saying this is another fantastic 5 star read from Tarrah Anders. I truly enjoy the way she writes and am never disappointed that I have picked up one of her works. I love it! I have not read Stripped yet, which comes before this book actually does but it did not affect my understanding or enjoyment of this book. I will go back and read Stripped now because I loved this one so much, however.

In this book we learn all about Cameron and Jacks. Camero

This was a quick fun read, and although this could be read as a standalone I would highly recommend you read Stripped before this book. You will get the background on how these characters and the secondary characters that play a big part in this book have gotten where they are. I love this author and I look forward to reading every one of her books, her stories are always easy, smooth flowing and make for some of the best reading.

The Night Manager by Tarrah Anders is a fantastic read. I was glued to it from start to finish. The main characters Jacks and Cam are so well written, it’s so easy to identify with them and fall in love with them.
This is a story that breaks the bro code – don’t mess around with your best friend’s little sister. Jacks is a former ‘dancer’ who now owns a revue club with his best mate Mal. Jacks wakes up the morning after Mal’s wedding naked, in bed with Mal’s little sister Cameron. Weeks later Ca

Yet again Anders has surprised me with a book I didn't know I was going to love! The brother's best friend trope was one of my least favorite reads, until now! Night Manager is an amazingly hilarious story about a game of cat and mouse that ultimately the mouse is doing the chasing.

Jack and Cameron spend one night together, that Jack doesn't remember. The part amicably, but weeks later she shows up at his place begging for a place to stay. Not wanting to turn her away he lets her, just until sh

“It's time to impress everyone with your dance moves. Sincerely... Your sixth beer.”

This novella packed a lot of subject matter into a short story. I’ll have to look into Tarrah’s other books and see if she has written more about these characters. I’d love to see where they go from here…

On the night of his best friend's wedding, Jacks hooks up with Malcolm's little sister, Cameron. Weeks pass, and Cameron ends up on Jack's doorstep needing a place to stay. At first, they do their best to keep things between them platonic, but, eventually, the chemistry between them erupts, and there is no turning back. Is is just a "friends with benefits" arrangement, or is what is happening between them the "real thing"?

What a good read! I fell in love with Jacks from t

The Night Manager was an awesome book, it was a quick, light and fun read. Once I saw the blurb and the cover it drew me in and I wasn't disappointed, this was one book that I could not put down; It had me sucked in from page one.

The characters were perfect. The chemistry was definitely there for Jacks and Cam, they were just meant to be together. Jacks was just hot and dreamy and Cam was just too cute for her own good.

The Night Manager by Tarrah Anders was a well written novella in my opinion and was a topic I enjoy reading.

Malcom and Jacks were best friends and strippers together years back. Now they co-own and exotic dance club together.

The night Malcom got married, Jacks ended up in bed with Mal’s younger sister Cameron. He didn’t know what to do or how it even happened. Then months later, she showed up on his doorstep needing a place to stay.

The Night Manager by Tarrah Anders is a wonderful, sexy, sweet and fun- a light-hearted story that captivated me right from the beginning. This follows on from ‘Stripped’, and although this story is focused on different characters, we do get to catch up with Mal and Becks from book one, too. I really enjoy Ms. Ander’s writing, I have read a lot of her books now and she never disappoints. I loved Stripped, and this story is a worthy companion to that book.
