Book Review: Hush

Hush
A.M. Salinger
(Nights Series, #8)
Publication date: October 16th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Tom Sutherland is an arrogant prick. There, I said it. Okay, so he’s also my assistant and I couldn’t survive without him, but that doesn’t make him less of an irritating bastard — Lana

Lana Keele is a witch. A beautiful, frustrating witch placed on this earth to torment me. Yeah, she’s my boss, but she’s still the most maddening creature I’ve ever had the misfortune to cross paths with — Tom

When Lana Keele, president of Keele Industries and only surviving heir to business tycoon Oliver Keele, wakes up in her devil-of-an-assistant’s bed after a drunken night out, she fears the worst. That is, until prissy Mr. Perfect Tom Sutherland declares that she’s the last woman he’d ever want to sleep with.

After surviving four years in the company of the infuriating woman he’d lusted after since his teens, Tom has had just about enough of the unholy siren that is Lana, especially when she turns up inebriated on his doorstep one night and demands sex. Convinced that Lana will never return his affections, Tom decides that it’s high time to get over his unrequited love.

Except Lana doesn’t quite seem to agree with this plan. Not after she sees him with another woman. Not after she confronts him about it. And most definitely not after he succumbs to temptation and kisses her.

As they finally ignite the fire that has burned so long between them, Tom cannot help but be certain that for Lana, this is just about sex. Will he be satisfied with only having the body of the woman he loves and not possess her heart? Or will Lana convince Tom that she truly means to give him her everything?

Discover Lana and Tom’s story in this sexy and stormy addition to the hot, contemporary romance series Nights by A.M. Salinger. Note from the author: although each book inNights can be read as a standalone, you will enjoy this series even more if you read the books in order!

This is a novella length MF romance with a HEA.

My Review

I loved it! Quick, to the point and with a lot of frustrations out in the open – that’s how I would describe this short story. Well, except great.

This is one of those rare cases when the woman is the boss and the man is the assistant. Really, she is his boss, the one who never paid attention to him (either because she has no time to fool around at the office or because she is as he describes her – a maddening witch). I would have expected to be proud to have the female character in charge for once but it felt weird a little (sorry girls, just keeping it true here!). One (un)fortunate incident brings Tom to Lana’s attention as more than her assistant. But Tom has to keep his heart away from her. He has been lusting over Lana for so long and he knows all is needed is a small sign of attention for his heart to be spoken for.

For such a short novella, the action is quite well distributed throughout the pages and there are enough details for us to know both characters and understand them. We have both their POVs, we have heated moments and frustrations from both sides. Fun and passion – perfect combo!

I loved the writing so much and I am sorry this was not a full length story, just to enjoy it a little more. A. M. Salinger is amazing, I have read one more book from this series and I enjoyed that one as well and definitely there will not be my last. 5 stars and hearts!
