For 100 Nights is the second book in Lara Adrian's erotic romance trilogy and it follows on immediately from the first so I'd recommend reading the books in order. I'm going to write this review assuming you've already read the first book so if you haven't it's probably best not to read any further. However, if you're looking for a hot new contemporary romance along the lines of Sylvia Day's Crossfire series then you're not going to want to miss this series.
At the end of the last book we saw Avery agree to spend 100 nights with Nick, completely on his terms and with no more barriers between them. Although she has come clean with him about most of her past she's still hiding a very big secret, unfortunately for her someone from her past has figured out her secret and when they find out she's dating a billionaire they figure they'll be able to make a fortune blackmailing her. Avery desperately wants to handle the situation on her own and I can understand why she doesn't want her past to impact Nick's life but I did get a bit frustrated that she kept things hidden from him for so long after everything they'd already been through.
It's hard to be honest with someone when you know they're hiding things from you though and Nick obviously has things from his past that he's just not willing to talk about. He's also not very open when it comes to talking about his feelings for her or where their relationship is going. Nick is brilliant at action - he's romantic, he puts her above his work, he treats her like she's precious and their sex life is phenomenal - but he's never told her that he loves her and Avery is hurt by the walls he keeps up between them emotionally. We do get to dig a bit deeper into Nick's past here but it's obvious he's not shared everything yet so I'm looking forward to learning more in the final book.
For 100 Nights is an incredibly hot read, Avery and Nick spend a lot of time screwing each other's brains out but I also enjoyed the more romantic side of their relationship and seeing them learning to trust each other more and starting to share their secrets. I will warn you that this book ends on a cliffhanger but I didn't actually find it was a bad one. The final book will definitely jump straight to the top of my to read pile as soon as it's released but I don't feel annoyed that I've only been given half a story like I sometimes do with cliffhangers!
