Night Moves by Andrea Smith
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
5 Sexy Stars!!!
Night Moves starts out with Darcy Sheridan. Darcy is a recent college graduate who is the only child of her two wealthy parents who have spoiled her rotten. She has a plan. She is going straight to the top of her fathers company. She’ll learn the ropes before he retires. She’s got a boyfriend she really cares for, a job she’s looking forward to, everything is looking up for her. That is until she finds her boyfriend cheating, and learns that things aren’t going to go quite as expected with her fathers company. She needs to get away for a bit so she decides to go to Belize for Christmas.
Easton Matthews just happens to be in Belize at the same time as Darcy. Easton, at 33 years old is rich and successful. He owns his own company, and works hard to keep on top of things. His mother is a wealthy English woman and his father, an American. He is half brothers with Taz. Easton is drawn to Darcy right away when he sees her. She reminds him of someone he once knew. Someone he tries to forget. He wants Darcy, but not to be her rebound guy. While in Belize, they spend some time together, but Easton and Darcy go their separate ways.
Time passes, but Darcy can’t get Easton out of her mind. Darcy’s best friend Lindsey is getting married. Darcy is the maid of honor and she never expected to see Easton at the wedding, she had no idea the sexy man she met on vacation was Taz’s brother and coming back into her life.
Easton permeates his way into Darcy’s life in multiple ways. Professionally and in the bed room, Easton is there. Their relationship is complex, in more ways than one. It starts out purely physical and let me tell you, Easton is one sexy man! The chemistry and physical attraction between these two jumps off the pages.
But what happens when feelings move beyond the physical? Things are complicated enough between Darcy and Easton...
Easton knows he can’t give Darcy all she wants and deserves, his past hinders him from doing that. But he wants her regardless.
“I can’t give you what you want, Darcy; I don’t have it to give, I’m sorry. But isn’t what we have the next best thing? We enjoy being with one another- isn’t that enough?”
Darcy is feeling things for Easton. Things that she knows she shouldn’t. He’s not available that way, and with work and all the other barriers, she knows it’s not the best idea. But you can’t control how you feel.
If I allowed myself a slow moment to be honest, I’d realize that I wanted him the way you want to watch a thunderstorm. I mean, it’s something great to watch from beneath a roof and through a window, but it’s something altogether different when you’re standing right in the thick of it, feeling the thunder through the ground you’re standing on; seeing the flashes of lightening land all around you. The intensity rocked because of the risk.
Lets take a second to talk about the characters... first Darcy. Darcy was a fabulous heroine. Even though she was little spoiled to begin with, she got over that fast and became an independent and strong woman. She took her life in her own hands. I liked her loyalty and spunkiness. Then there’s Easton. Easton is fanfreakingtastic! I love me a damaged man, and he is that for sure. His past made him the man he is today, but he fights to get past it. He is sexy, dominate, charming and everything a good alpha male should be. It’s nice to see Taz and Lindsey make a few appearances in this story, and we also get introduced to a new character I adored- Eli. I mean, who doesn’t want a gay bff?
Now lets talk about the sex...
“I’m going to make you come. Right here. Right now... and you will come, love.”
It was smoking hot- passionate, kinky and wild. It was just HOT- so damn hot! You will not be disappointed with the sex scenes in this book!
Easton and Darcy’s journey wasn’t all sexual. Thats one of the best things about this book. There was a real story along with the copious amounts of sex. A story with some angst, drama and suspense, but also romance, overcoming your past and self discovery.
What I love about this series is that with each book, it gets better and better! I’ve read all of Andrea Smith’s books and this is my favorite by far. The writing had a nice flow to it, once I started this book I had trouble putting it down. I read the last 80% with no breaks, I just couldn’t stop. An entertaining and compelling story with great writing and well developed characters- couldn’t ask for much more! Definitely a 5 star read for me!

There's a new Alpha in town… and he's a Brit!
Darcy Nicole Sheridan, is 22 years-old, beautiful, single, spirited, sexy and - spoiled. She knows that about herself. Raised by wealthy (and doting) parents as an only child, Darcy pretty much coasts through life until her heart was inexplicably broken by her boyfriend, Darin.
To ease the pain, Darcy flies to Belize over the holidays fully intending to wallow in self-pity and distance herself from her ex. Her pity party is short-lived however, after observing a very handsome, very intriguing man on the beach. Darcy becomes the focus of the smokin' hot, wealthy and somewhat mysterious 'E.J.'
Soon she finds herself entangled with an alpha like no other… Her world is rocked by a series of events that will forever change the course of her life, showing her what love is all about; and forcing her to come to terms with hidden sexual pleasures only one man could fulfill…
