Everything's naughtier after dark...

Four years ago at a film festival, Cici Fine met Cooper Wild, a man who turned her world upside down in the span of one deliciously perfect week. He was everything she'd ever dreamed of: sinfully sexy, intelligent, and incredibly loving. When the festival ended, they returned to their own hometowns with promises of forever. But Cooper disappeared, and Cici was left to raise the daughter he never knew about alone.



Cooper is finally thinking straight after years of being lost in grief from the tragedy that killed his father and left his mother blind. Now he's on a mission to find the woman he left behind--the only woman he's ever loved.



But Cici Fine is no longer a naive young girl. She's a savvy businesswoman with big responsibilities, on the cusp of a life-changing move. When fate brings the two together, they'll put the old adage to the test and find out if love really can conquer all.

Read an Excerpt

BAY CITY, MARYLAND, was the last place Celeste “Cici” Fine wanted to be this weekend. She had a million things to do to get ready for her upcoming move to New York City—including finding a place to live. Her photography business had finally taken off, and after securing several lucrative contracts in and around New York City, she had to make the move from Peaceful Harbor to New York. She hated the idea of moving her daughter, Melody, to a big city, and away from her friends, aunt, and grandparents, but now was probably the easiest time to do so. At almost three and a half, Melody was a precocious child, and Cici had high hopes that she’d adapt well to her new surroundings. But moving was just the tip of the what-the-hell-am-I-doing iceberg she seemed to be traveling on. Being back in Bay City and moving to New York? That was a double whammy.

She set her suitcase on the bed and went about unpacking her belongings, trying not to think about the last time she’d been there. She placed her clothes in the fancy dresser and caught sight of the king-sized bed in the mirror. She looked at the beautiful linens, remembering the way it had felt to be tangled up in them with the man who had made her head spin over one incredible week—and, just as quickly, had shattered her heart into a million little pieces. She found herself falling back into the memories of how wonderful and safe it had felt to be in his arms, how every kiss, every caress, every whispered promise had made her love for him grow. She’d been so sure he was her forever love…

She brought her toiletries bag into the bathroom and slammed it on the counter. She looked around the marble bathroom, and the familiar longing she thought she’d buried long ago came back in waves. Damn it. She’d fallen for him like a picture came into focus—a little blurry at first and then hard and fast. Unstoppable.

Cooper Wild’s potent masculinity was all consuming. His possessive, protective nature had made her feel special and desirable in the best way. The man was the perfect mix of sexual beast and gentleman, and his heart…She sighed inwardly. His loving, open heart had completely enveloped her. And then the Bay City Film Festival they were photographing had ended, and they’d gone their separate ways with promises of forever. Promises she, like the naive twenty-two-year-old she’d been, had trusted in and believed.

She looked in the mirror and pushed her long black hair over her shoulders, remembering how much Cooper had loved running his fingers through it. How he’d tangle his hands in it and hold on tight as they ravaged each other. Her scalp tingled with the memory, sending her pulse into a frenzy. She rolled her eyes at her reflection. She’d never fully let go of the fantasy that someday, somehow, they’d find each other again. But that type of thinking could ruin her, and she refused to do that to herself again. It had taken her a long time to stop thinking about him every minute of the day—not to mention every time she looked into Melody’s blue eyes—and she couldn’t fall back into that soul-wrenching fantasy.

She forced herself to remember the painful weeks of unanswered phone calls and texts, as her belly had swelled with his child and she’d cried more tears than she’d ever thought possible. She hadn’t been back to Bay City since, but with the impending move, she couldn’t afford to pass up the film festival this year. She needed the income, and Cooper had become even more famous over the last few years and this event was probably beneath him at this point in his career. She had purposely not sought out information about him, but it was hard to miss his credit lines on some of the most prestigious photos appearing in all the prominent magazines and newspapers. At least all she had to wallow in were the memories. There was no chance of seeing him.

Love, love, love, love this one! This book was definitely different than most of the other ones by Melissa and I loved that! Most of the previous books, the men find the women and then go on a mission to conquer. With Cooper, he already had his sights set on something he lost years ago and he was on a mission to get that back. This one definitely gives you the feelies and I loved it! I think Cooper became my favorite Wild boy after reading his story with CiCi. And my heart continues to grow for Mary Lou. I would love to read more about her - obviously not a romance, but something about her. She is such an amazing woman! I would put this book on a 'lesser steamy' than the other "After Dark" books, but it was still just as good! I would say more love than sex! Definitely a must read!

I am pretty sad that this was the last in the series because it was a hot series. Melissa Foster really stepped it up with these. Cooper was just as sexy and great as the rest of the series. Copper gets a second chance at the love of his life. He lost her once but this time he is out to get her back. I loved reading this one because it really ended the series nicely.

After falling madly in love with Jackson in the last book in the Wild Boy series I wondered if there would be any space in my heart for Cooper! Well I’m relieved to say there was! Coop is adorable a little less macho but sweet & sensitive. He spent a passionate week with Celeste way back four years previously, they had made promises for the future but Celeste (Cici) never heard from Coop again .. until he tracked her down on a film set where she was the photographer. The passion was reignited immediately but life had moved on for Cici she now had other people to consider & couldn’t simply resurrect the relationship .. she spent a couple of hot & steamy days with him then had to make a speedy exit back home. During their meeting he confessed why he had been absent & it’s a heart wrenching explanation. Coop was determined not to lose her again & followed his heart this time … we meet up with the rest of the Wild family & previous characters from the other books but it’s not necessary to read those first .. this works well as a stand alone. Full of love, sadness, cuteness (Melody) this story will enthral until the end .. I enjoyed every page & recommend it as a real feel-good factor romance. Thanks to the author & Brook Cottage Books for the opportunity to read in exchange for my honest opinion.

Forgiveness is the best redemption I thought that Logan is my favorite Wild boys but I was wrong. Cooper is my most favorite. This sexy photographer has a heart not only for perfect shots but mostly to Cece his true love. This two are both broken and moved on despite not having a closure to their relationship. Fate or destiny brings them back together and the passion is undeniable after long four years without contact. Forgiveness is the best redemption for both Cooper and Cece. Melody even brings the best world for these two. She is so precious and will melt your heart. Love is better with having second chances especially when you are wiling to forgive and moved on. This book is very emotional, sexy and fun to read. All the Wild boys will drives you crazy on their own story. These Wild boys knows how to love, protect and keep their women safe which should all men do. Disclosure: I received an e-book to read and review. All my thoughts and opinions are 100% honestly mine.

ARC kindly provided by Melissa Foster via Brook Cottage Book TOurs in exchange for an honest review. Review A Note to Readers about ‘Cooper’: Melissa’s fans have been asking for a darker, sexier version of The Bradens, and she’s proud to bring you the Wild Boys and the Bad Boys in the new After Dark series. The After Dark series is written in the same raw, emotional voice as The Bradens and her other romance series. However, please be warned that the language in the After Dark books is naughtier than in her other novels, and the heat level has amped up a bit. She hopes you enjoy them as much as she enjoy writing them. ‘Cooper’ is the fourth novel in the ‘Wild Boys After Dark’ series and last and youngest Wild Brother. It is a story with a lot more history to it and one that I believe is infinitely more sad compared to Cooper’s brothers’ as he lost his one true love when he was quite young and believed he never had the chance to reclaim it. I looked forward to it as it sounded so much DIFFERENT compared to Heath’s, Logan’s or Jackson’s. In Cooper’s and Celeste’s story (even their first-name initials are the same! *squeals*) their romance is second-chance type - and it's one of my favourites. There is something about second-chance romance that brings hope to the reader and makes you 'go' for their happily ever after. Cooper is a man who has been tormented by the death of his father and the savage beating of his mother for the past four years. He was broken but finally he has healed, rebuilt himself and is finally ready to go and reclaim his true love, Celeste (or, as Cooper affectionately calls her, Ceese). Celeste is a woman who had never fallen out of love with Cooper ever since their week together. But the week together resulted not only in an enduring love and plans for the future, but with a daughter. Now that Cooper has returned after all these years, so has the passion and love the two shared; but Celeste has her daughter, Melody, to think about, and she cannot make any mistakes that would hurt her baby daughter. Throughout the entire novel, Celeste keeps hidden the fact that she and Cooper have a daughter. And I'm like: “Whyyyyyyyyyy? Just tell him already! I said, tell him gosh dang you! You're gonna ruin everything!” I got frustrated with her for her reason didn’t seem ALL THAT PROBLEMATIC. It was so feeble that I almost exploded with frustration! One thing that I have noticed Melissa Foster do is gradually escalate the emotional attachment each Wild brother has to their love interests with each novel before the beginning of the story, which makes them new and original to read. Now, Melissa also did something really sneaky: She put in the CUTEST LITTLE GIRL IN THE WORLD (EVER) into the novel. Now I'm a sucker for little kids, so this novel ended up being more potent in emotion for me. I did get a little bit confused with this novella as it didn't really have a complication, or at least the complication wasn't dramatized as much and it skipped straight to the resolution and ending. You'll get what I mean when you read the novel: and I mean it, READ IT. ... read more at https://staceykym.wordpress.com/2015/12/09/review-cooper-wild-brothers-after-dark-4-by-melissa-foster/ ...

I loved Cooper and Cici's story. The character names were great and the past and present coming together were good too. My heart broke for Cooper in this book but was glad to see him get the family he always wanted with Cici. The whole Wild Boys series is a must read

4.5 star I was pulled right into this short story. The story has laughs, secrets, and heartbreak. If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first Logan (Wild Boys After Dark, #1) Heath (Wild Boys After Dark, #2) Jackson (Wild Boys After Dark, #3) This is Cici and Cooper’s story. Cooper walked away from love years ago after a tragic event. Now he wants to go track that woman down and win her back. When Cooper left Cici he never knew that she still had a piece of him. Now she is a different woman. She takes care of her daughter and works. Can she allow Cooper back into her life? What if he runs from there love again? Can she trust him? What will he think of her secret? Can two people who have been hurt so bad learn to love again? I loved these characters and also the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I highly recommend this book.

I received an ARC for this novel in exchange for an honest review. A great novel, albeit a bit shorter than most of Melissa Foster's novels, it was a wonderful tale of a second chance at love. Lots of steamy scenes and a few emotional ones that grab your heart and keep you glued throughout the book.
allromancereader More than 1 year ago
Another hot, steamy read from Melissa Foster. Cooper is a wonderful, sensitive character. He feels things deeply, whether it be the death of his father, the impact to his mother, or his feelings for Cici. Those feelings have affected him for so long and after years, he's finally digging himself out of the emotional hole he dug for himself and is trying to set his world right. Cici has been dealing with the impact of Cooper's departure for the past four years. I feel like I didn't get to know her as well as I wanted to in this book. And I was a bit perturbed at times that she allowed her lust for Cooper to continue to hijack her brain and what she knew she needed to do. I loved how the author handled when Cooper found out what Cici had been keeping from him. It was another reflection of his deep emotional nature and also the guilt he was feeling over how he had handled basically everything in his life in the past four years.
BookMomto6 More than 1 year ago
Having read all four of these books about the Wild boys, I have to say that I think Foster left the best for last. Cooper is definitely my favorite. Not only did it take him longer to get past the death of his father and the blinding of his mother, he just seems more real to me. The plot is fast moving and is full of surprises that I do not want to let slip here but whether you have read about Cooper's brothers - Logan, Heath and Jackson - or not, you need to pick up this book and read all about Cooper.

Cooper Wild is amazing! He has such a big heart and is sexy as hell. Cooper and Cici met 4 years ago and the Bay City Film Festival and spent one amazing week together. They went their separate ways, but with promises of a future together. Flash forward 4 years and Cooper has come to this film festival with every intention of seeing Cici again. He has finally shaken off the numb state of mind he has been in since his family was torn apart 4 years ago by the murder of his father and the brutal beating that left his mother blind and left for dead. During all that time he never forgot Cici or how much he loved her. He was just so broken and he didn’t want to drag her into that. Now he needs to earn her trust and love again. Cici has never stopped loving Cooper even after her phone calls went unanswered 4 years earlier. She is no longer a naïve young girl. She is a grown woman with her own business and a daughter to raise, alone. Can Cooper get through the walls that Cici has built around her heart? Cooper is just to die for. He is so attentive and always puts Cici’s needs first. His love and commitment to his family is so wonderful to see. Yes, you will drool over Cooper after all he is a Wild Boy. Just like his brothers he is so damn HOT, but it’s his heart you will fall in love with. I will say that you may need some tissues while reading this book. Bring on the Bad Boys and the Nice Girls. I can’t wait!

Cooper's story in Wild Boys After Dark series is my favorite out of the four. I love Cooper and Cici's connection and attraction. During the entire story, I found myself routing for them to work out any issues they were facing. I wanted those two to be together and stay that way. Cooper suffered a major loss with his dad. I enjoyed reading how excited Cooper was with Cici and wanting to share the news of her with his family, but all that was gone when Cooper learned about what happened to his father. Cooper lost himself in anger. He didn't want Cici around his anger. Time can help heal wounds, but could too much time cause irreversible damage to a connection that quick and powerful? Cici has a lot to risk with the possibility of running into Cooper again. As much as she'd like to tell herself she's over him, a connection like they had is hard to move passed. Now she's not just risk losing herself. She has her daughter to think about it. There's only one thing I wanted with this story, I wanted more. I wanted to read or know more about what happened right after Cooper met Cici's daughter. I wanted to see how their relationship would grow and how introducing her to Cooper's family would have gone. I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.

This a second chance love story. Cooper Wild has been in love with Celeste Fine for four years but he has distanced himself from her to protect her. Now, he just simply cannot stay away and regrets his decision. Celeste (Cici) is not the same woman. She is a stronger more mature woman who has moved on with her life. She has more responsibilities than before and may keep her from addressing her true feelings for Cooper. Their story has ups and downs that keep you reading. You immediately fall in love with Cooper and Cici. The author has written a story that gives you the feeling that you know and love each character. It is unique and steamy love story. I am a new fan of Melissa Foster and I truly loved this book.
CharlotteLynnsReviews More than 1 year ago
A love lost…or almost. Cooper met his soul mate then his family had a catastrophe happen and he lost her. The sad part, Cici didn’t even know what made him leave her. This is a story of hope and lost love. Cooper comes back to where he met Cici and does find her again. I liked that Cici did not just forgive and forget. He has to work to get her to even spend time with her. Within this book is also a HUGE secret. I am not sure most men would handle the secret as Cooper did. When the secret came to light he took it in stride. He did not let it disrupt anyone’s lives and proved his love by rolling with what was happening. In true Melissa Foster style she brought the reader a new family of hot sexy men. These men are a little hotter and a little sexier than others she has written about. The storyline is more graphic than other books in her series. I am definitely in lust with these men. Check out this entire series. There are characters that reappear from the Braden’s series but it is not required to have read them to enjoy these books. Each book is its own story.
