Recommends it for: Fans of erotic romance
I found the latest by Lacey Alexander (aka Toni Blake), and the first book in her promising new H.O.T. Cops series, deliciously smutastic, and quite hard to put down! I raced through it one day (a rarity for me lately), and put everything on the back burner until I could finish this steamy page turner. And for 98% of the book, I was not disappointed! Yes, there were a few scenes that pushed my boundaries a bit (well, maybe not pushed my reading boundaries, but made me think a little less of the ...more
4 ½ stars – Contemporary Erotic Romance

H – Holy Hot Tamales Batman!
O – Our grandmothers would be shocked and appalled to discover their beloved chocolate meringue pie being used in such a naughty fashion. Chocolate pie as a sexual turn-on? Meringue as lubricant in unmentionable, private places?
T – Tsk-tsk, tut-tut! Can’t you just see the stunned, disapproving headshakes?

This book is fire alarm smokin’ HOT, the sex is raunchy, and there’s dirty talk aplenty, but it also has a poignant storyline

LOVED IT!!! If your in the mood for an extremely HOT one this might just be for you. Despite ton's of kinky sex, some M/W/M and M/M/M/W action this book had a very good story line. The H&h had many of things to over come from their pasts and it was very interesting reading how they were coming to grips with them. I loved how the setting is in Michigan because that is where I live and have been to many places that were in this book.
The big problem is I read the sneak peek for the next book, Party

Holy Hell! Okay so this book kind of caught me off guard. Its not that I didn't love it which I did, but the emotions and the hot sex was just chart topping. In my next life I want to be just like her. Now this was my first ever Lacey Alexander book and boy was it amazing! Now I am so intrigued I want to go back and read some of back list. So before I get on to the review. I must say I have had this thing for Strong Alpha Males in Law Enforcement so this to me was a must read.

I guess I wasn't prepared for such a book. I was only reading the blurb and I think that was not enough – my mistake. And I'm really no wimp but this was indeed too much.

At least after reading 79 % of this book, Jake had no choice but to face what he knew: "This kind of extreme sex wasn't really good for either one of them." Yeah, good old Jake was prodding Carly into hypersexual behavior. And even Carly felt it was weird to have a foursome. Wow, how revealing...

75 % of this book is about sex. A

Lacey Alexander does it again with this awesome beginning to what looks to be a smokin' series!! Also, being a Michigan girl through and through, I absolutely LOVED that this book was set in Northern Michigan, kind of a fun treat for me!

Definitely had problems with this book; almost felt like two different stories and for me, they did not meld well together.

I loved the first half of the book. I really liked seeing the relationship develop between Carly and Jack. I *loved* (and was so anticipating) the confrontation when he would run into her again as "Carly" and thought how that played out was so entertaining. The chemistry between them was hot and I thought that their relationship was so open and honest. I loved i

Hot damn! This book defines the words hot, sexy, and just "delicious" wrapped up in one awesome package. I truly had a fun time reading this book and I'm pretty sure those who have read it did so as well! You'll love it if you're a fan of Toni Blake, that's for sure. I adore Carly Winters and I really liked Jake Lockhart... until he made that idiotic move by breaking up with Carly. I still don't get his reason! Anyway, if you're looking for a small-town sexy and sweet erotica/contemporary romanc ...more

3 Stars

Uncomfortable with the idea of becoming sexually involved with a man from her small home town, Carly Winters releases her pent up frustrations under the guise of an alter-ego, Desiree. During one of her excursions in the big city, Carly/Desiree meets Jake Lockhart, a sexy as sin stranger, and finds herself engaging in one of her most secret fantasies. Never expecting to see Jake again, Carly’s quiet life is turned upside down when she learns that he is the new cop in town

When I first started reading Bad Girl By Night after the first chapter I thought, this is going to be another erotica screwfest with no depth. Boy was I wrong! I was ready to put it down after the first chapter but soooo glad I didn't! This was my first read by Lacey Alexander and I was very impressed. Ms. Alexander delivered I'm sure what she is known for, steamy, uninhibited sex that fires up the pages and the reader's libido, but also a well developed storyline as well as characters to invest ...more

2 ½ stars. The purpose is lots of explicit sex scenes. I wanted more personality development and more story.

Carly makes and sells wood furniture. She lives in an apartment above her shop/store in Turnbridge, a small town in Michigan. She hasn’t dated anyone in her home town for about 12 years. Every six weeks or so she drives to Traverse City wearing seductive clothes and a lot of makeup. She sits in a bar until she meets someone she likes for a night of anonymous sex. She uses the f

This book is a steaming romance that starts with a bang! I was surprised at how deeply involved I became in the lives of the two main characters.

Carly Winters is boring and predictable to the people of her home town of Turnbridge. She never dates and her past relationship failed because she can’t ‘let go.’ But little do these misguided residents know of Carly’s alternate personality - Desiree. Desiree dresses up in s
Really hot read with a good story, but definitely not a light topic. Both the H&h were sexually molested when they were younger and even though it wasn't overly dramatic I can't say it was upbeat. The sex scenes were amazing and it did definitely start of with a bang or maybe I should say bang bang since Desiree (Carly's bad girl personality) got it on with two sexy men. ...more

Why I Read this Book: When I read the blurb for Bad Girl by Night, I couldn’t wait to read about Carly’s double life. From time to time, I like to read books that are so far from my own life (and lifestyle) just so I can take a walk in someone else’s shoes. Sort of like a farfetched escape, if you will. I was curious to see how Carly handles Jake entering her ‘normal life’. It seemed like there was going to be some tension and hot romance and that’s exactly what I got.

What I Liked: I felt so con

I really liked this one, I loved how Carly was able to change over the course of the book. At the start of it she needed Desiree, having that other personality allowed her to embrace a side of herself that she couldn't face up to. At first I thought it was just the small town dynamics at play that forced Carly to split her lives up. But once Jake was able to sus the details out, things made perfect sense.

I really liked how Jake was able to get Carly to face up to those horrible truths and get pa

YOWSA! This book is hot! So, based on what it is, why didn't I give it a 5?? Well, because while it does have more plot that a lot of just didn't quite have enough for me to stay truly glued to the storyline. I'm more of a special ops erotica girl...but alas, it was still pretty darn good. Much better than a lot I've read lately. So anyhow, I'll have to get my good friend Jan at the library to order the rest of the series...not that I want to read them right now because I'm over it ...more

This is surprisingly touching, with some difficult subject matter, but it's handled exceedingly well. The sex is hot and the love story is sweet - not too easy, but not so difficult that I was pulling out my hair. I did wonder why Carly's mother wasn't an active character given Carly's small-town ways, and I would have liked for her to at least go through the decision on whether to tell her mother her big secret, but that would have brought another level of gravity to an already hard subject, so ...more

STORY: 3.5 stars
OVERALL: 4 stars

Having read some very entertaining stories by this author years ago, I was eager to get started on this audio book. The opening to the story was hot and exciting, giving me hope yet so I soon realized that everything I read during the entire first day of reading was one long, long, long sex scene. It was a well written, sexy ménage but I had no idea which man was which as we'd only been briefly introduced to each of them. Character devel

Lacey Alexander does it again. The first book in the H.O.T. Cops series is smokin' hot.

Carly, a small town girl seen as sweet, shy, and opposed to sex has a secret life. She sneaks into a neighboring town to become Desiree a women with no sexual hangups whatsoever. After her first encounter with two men she returns home only to find that Jake Lockhart, one of the two men she had been with, has moved to her small town of Turnbridge, Michigan where he has become a local cop.

One of the reasons I read Lacey Alexander is because when she writes a sexy story, there's an actual story there. (Not all erotica authors go the distance on story.)

This story focuses on two people who both have a history of childhood sexual abuse. Because of that, they understand each other in ways none of their previous partners ever have. It builds a bond between them. Unfortunately, those who've been abused have a tendency to go to sexual extremes (either frigid or wild). While their extreme

As erotic romance books goes this feel pretty tame, mainly because of the hesitant use of dirty talk in some places. But it is still a really good read. I like that they are both flawed in the same way and it has messed them up to some degree. it is a story about healing and closure to some extent. but mostly its about coming to terms with who you are in-spite of your history and learning that sometime the past is not as far away as you think. The whole story was skilfully done and pushed all th ...more
Very HOT! Lacey is such a talented author. She does a great job with descriptions from some really mind blowing sex scenes to describing the characters thoughts and feelings. You can tell that Lacey is a seasoned author and knows what she's doing when writing a book. The words flow beautifully, she keeps it short with secondary characters, and she can fully engage the readers senses by describing in detail every sexual sensation. While I did enjoy it I still gave it a 4 stars because while so mu ...more

This was a very different story for a romance novel. Kind of heavy subject matter. But, for the most part I feel it was handled really well. It was an endearing story, while still possessing the sizzle you expect form Lacey's books. I won't put in spoilers, but my only qualm with the story was Jake's belief that "he" knew what was better for Carly than she knew herself. Sometimes a little knowledge is a dangerous thing! ...more

First of all, the book description does not nearly give this enough justice. Yes, there was a great deal of erotica in this novel. The language was bold and gritty, and the hero and heroine had plenty of steamy funtimes, but that is not the entire crux of the novel.

Carly is a furniture maker in her small town in Michigan. Occasionally, she feels the built up urge to be someone else--Desiree, a woman of mystery who is controled, seductive, and everything that Carly is not. She finds herself going
For some reason, I much prefer Lacey Alexander's books to her alter ego, the more famous Toni Blake. I love how she lets it all go as Lacey Alexander, and her claim to fame under this alias, that she wants to write women's fantasies within the context of romance and the happily ever after we all love, is so spot on. Lacey Alexander is my total guilty pleasure. Her books are very naughty and pretty much everything goes, but somehow it all works for me, I always believe in the love story, and I lo ...more

Lacey Alexander's books have been called deliciously decadent, unbelievably erotic, exceptionally arousing, blazingly sexual, and downright sinful. In each book, Lacey strives to take her readers on the ultimate erotic adventure and hopes her books will encourage women to embrace their sexual fantasies.
