{ARC Review} Naughty Nights: A Bad Boy Romance by Sophie Brooks

Title: Naughty Nights: A Bad Boy Romance
Author: Sophie Brooks
Genre: Contemporary Romance/ Erotic Romance
Rating: 4.5 Lazy Books


Luke Larson is friendly, funny, flirty, and off-the-charts hot. No surprise he's my favorite person in my new city. The problem? Luke is the only friend I’ve made since moving to town. I've tried the whole friends-to-lovers thing before. It ended badly. 

Luke's the night manager at the hotel where I'm staying until I find an apartment. He's been kind, helpful, even protective of me since I checked in. Walking me to my room, claiming a cute single girl like me needs a hotel bodyguard. Ordering takeout from his favorite places for us to share. Talking with me late into the night. I don’t want to lose that, so my rule is - Friends Only. But the way he sometimes looks at me with those smoldering blue eyes makes me question my rule. 

Like last night after his shift ended. It was supposed to be just pizza and a movie. Nothing wrong with that, right? Except we fell asleep, and if his boss catches him in my room, she’ll fire him. 

It's hard enough to resist him when we're on opposite sides of the front desk. Now that we're trapped in a room with a king-sized bed, the temptation is overwhelming. And I can’t help but wonder if Luke is interested in exploring something real… or if he’s only looking for a few naughty nights.

My Lazy Thoughts:

One thing I love about Sophia Brooks's books is that they always feature hot couples. Well, Naughty Nights is no different.

Luke and Darcy were great together. I loved the fact that they started out as friends, considering I'm a huge fan of the friends-to-lovers trope. There's always a good build-up to romance and the rapport between the characters is already there.

The same goes with this book. The friendship between Luke and Darcy was already established, so from the get-go we saw them spending time together and bonding over their mutual love for takeouts. Until things started heating up...

I like that the book is peppered with amusing and interesting characters like John, Mrs. Townsend and the horny guy from the second floor. LOL

Even Barbara the Barracuda, Luke's boss at the Resident Inn where Darcy was temporarily staying, was a little hilarious albeit annoying.

My only complaint about the story is that it's short! But then again, it's a novella. So that was already expected.

Good thing that Sophia is publishing a full-length novel in a couple of weeks. Already looking forward to reading that.
