Wild Nights: A Justiss Alliance Novel by Tina Wainscott

The courageous men of USA Today bestselling author Tina Wainscott’s Justiss Alliance series never give up and never make a promise they can’t live up to—especially when love is on the line.
Saxby Cole’s latest mission—at Decadence, a hedonistic tropical resort—sounds like a plum assignment for a confirmed bachelor, but he isn’t here to mingle. There’s a dangerous prostitution ring drugging innocent women—and Sax has come to take them down.
After dumping her cheating fiancé right before their Caribbean vacation, Jennessy Shaw goes alone, hoping to explore her wild side. But by the end of the first night, she’s not sure she has one. Which is why it’s so shocking when she wakes up in a sexy stranger’s room with no memory of the night before.
Sax wants to send this sweet beauty home, but Jennessy turns out to be a valuable partner in his investigation. Even more surprising is the sudden need he feels to keep her close. Diving together into the dark shadows of this island paradise, Jennessy lets Sax into her heart—and discovers a passion she never knew she had.

Wild Nights was definetely very wild! This is the first book in the Justiss Alliance series that I have read and I was not let down. I did recieve this book as an ARC from Netgalley for my honest review. My honest review is that it was a very good book. There were hot scenes that were not limited to the bedroom but all over the sexy island resort called Decadence! I was afraid at first that the main drive of this book was for Saxby and Jennessy to figure out who exactly is drugging women to prostitute for the clientel who would like to pay for a sure thing. Kind of a scary topic I must admit, but it happens to the best of us and kudos to you Tina for ackowlaging that it happens. My hat goes off to you for finding a way to make the book touch on the subject without making the book heavy or dark but more about the mystery of whats going on and the relationship between Saxby and Jennessy. Jennessy recently breaks up with her boyfriend and has decided to go on her couples vacation solo. She meets Saxby and decides there is something about him that she just can't ignore. So what does any hot blooded female do when trying to forget an ex? Find a sexy man to help her forget of course.. Saxby is on an undercover mission and is trying to tone down his undeniable hotness to catch who is behind drugging women on a hedonistic Caribbean Island resort. To say that Saxby is surprised when Jennessy hits on him is putting it mildly. He rejects her the nicest way he knows how and thinks that is the end of the story. When he sees that Jennessy is in trouble he comes in to save the day like any good SEAL would. For the sake of the mission of course Saxby and Jennessy work together to figure out just what is going on. Can Saxby and Jennessy get up close and personal to save the day and protect their hearts at the same time? That my friend is the real question.

This was not my favorite of the series. Sax is sent to this resort to investigate a suspected issue with women guests being given the date rape drug. He meets Jennessy on the plane and immediately is attracted to her. Jennessy is a bit on the shy side, but immediately goes over the top, doing things that a shy person wouldn't normally do. I found some of the plot line over the top and not necessary to have a interesting story. I had to push through it to finish. I would give it a 3.5. I'm not giving up on the series, I have liked the others. This one just didn't win me over.

This is the 3rd book in the Justiss Alliance Series. I had concerns going in reading this having not read the first two installments. Lucky, it can be read as a stand alone. I do plan on adding the first two books to my ever growing TBR. The novel is very well written, i t is obvious that Tina has done her research. Her characters are well defined and you love the ones you should love and want to beat the villians like red-headed step children! In this novel - Ms. Wainscott brings us Saxby Cole's story. Sax is a former Navy SEAL, whose only commitment has ever been  to the military, after a mission goes bad and he is forced to leave the service he goes to work for the Justiss alliance. The Alliance takes an assignment in the Bahamas investigating a date rape ring at an exclusive resort. Jennessy is a lady whose heart was stomped by a cheating ex. She planned this trip with the ex to discover her wild side, he is out of the picture but has decided to go on her own.  Sax and Jennessy meet on the flight to the resort and the chemistry is instant. Sax doesn't feel he can act on this attraction. After, playing the I can't hook up with anyone card at the resort. Jennessy turns up at his door drugged. The adventure to find out who is behind the date rape drugging and more is off. Will Sax be able to commit?  Will Jennessy, be able to walk away, read it to find out! If you like military romance, mystery and adventure this novel is for you. I look forward to reading more in this series.

This is the 3th book in the Justice Alliance series, but it can be read as a standalone. I have not read the first two, but after reading Wild Nights, I went right out and bought them! I really enjoyed this novel. It was fast paced and full of action (in and out of the bedroom…). The story line is somewhat intense. Saxby is sent to a “wild” resort to investigate rumors of date rape. The subject is a touchy one, but the author handles is pretty well.  Despite the overwhelming topic, the author keeps the focus stays on the growing relationship between the hero and heroine. The action and storyline move the relationship along, adding to it, rather than distracting us from it.  Jennessy (can I just say how much I love that name?) is definitely a strong female lead. She has just left a long-term relationship after finding the guy she thought she would marry, cheating. She has decided to explore her “wild side” and is pushing past her comfort zone to explore what she’s been missing. When Jennessy almost falls victim to the dark schemes at the resort, she and Sax team up to discover who is behind it all.  Unfortunately, Sax in convinced that his DNA will keep him from ever being faithful to a woman. As he falls fast and hard for Jennessy, he fights even harder to convince her, and himself, that they would never work. The heat between Sax and Jennessy is off the charts. They steam up the room from the pages of a book. Sax is the kind of guy every girl swoons over, strong, honest, and protective, a gentleman, and an alpha all rolled into one, sexy, steamy package. I didn’t feel like the ending was predictable, but neither was I particularity shocked.  The story was well written and was very consistent. From time to time, the military jargon got a little cliché. However, it wasn’t much, just here and there.  Overall this was a great read. I loved the characters, the plot, and the love story. This book got me interested and excited for the other books in the series. That tells you just how great it was!

Sexy, funny and mysterious - keeps you guessing right up to the point where all the players are revealed. Can be read as a standalone, but I found it interesting enough to read the previous books in the series. The ending gives the setup for the next book in the series about Knox and Vivi - can't wait! eARC received via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ Stars Defend and protect is the motto of the Justiss Alliance and the men that work within the company.  This is the next book in the series by Ms. Wainscott that shares more about the five SEALS that serve together fighting to overcome injustices in the civilian world.  It is Saxby and Jennesy’s story about finding each other in a most unexpected setting, an island resort called Decadence where clothing is optional.     Jennessy dumped her ex when she found him cheating on her!  The planned vacation to Decadence an island resort in the Bahamas was supposed to be for the two of them but there was no way she wanted that cheater with her.  She canceled his flight and reservation and decided to go alone.  This was a step out of her comfort zone and she planned on taking advantage of all the club had to offer.  The only problem she had is her family, her course of study and future job on the police force might not agree with her walking on the wild side!  When she meets Saxby on the flight to the resort, he is the perfect gentleman, not her usual type but she finds herself attracted to him.  He seems to be the opposite of everything her ex was!  Or is he really what he appears to be? Saxby has been assigned a mission to uncover and find evidence of what is happening to some of the women visiting the resort.  They are reporting that they feel like they have been raped but cannot remember anything!  His company takes on jobs that are hard to solve and works to bring justice to those that have been wronged.   Sax is a ladies man that has no problem attracting women so when he is told that he would need a makeover to turn him into a GEEK he was not that excited!  How do you take a gorgeous hunk and turn him into a GEEK?  Dye the blond hair brown, contacts to cover the striking green eyes, dress him in oversized clothes and tell him to slouch!  Everything is going according to plan until he meets a woman like he has never seen before.  A woman that might change his mind about staying unattached! He cannot be distracted right now, he is on a mission and lives are at stake! When Jennessy is drugged and handed over to Saxby by one of the club employees the story really starts to unfold.  Who can be trusted?  Will they be able to solve this dangerous mission?  Can they find out who is behind the drugging and taking advantage of unwilling women? Hero: Saxby Cole 4.5 stars Heroine: Jennessy Shaw 4.5 stars Plot:  4.5 stars Steam Level:  4.5 stars Cliffhanger:  No Would I recommend this book:  Yes.  If you are interested in a book that has hot sex, hunky ex-seals and a great who done it, then this is your next read! Would I recommend this author:  Yes.  This was my first read by this remarkable author and it will not be my last!  Great characters and plot that will leave you wanting to read more!  It made me want to read more in this series! ***Received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review***

I have read all of the Justiss series they have been outstanding reads. You have the thrill, mystery, passion, along with sparks that fly, tempters raise, fighting, action and of course there is love. Who could turn down these wonderful reads. Tina doesn’t let you down in her latest Wild Nights, lordy lordy lordy there are some wild nights in this read. This and all the Justiss Alliance series are interesting reads that will keep you turning the pages wanting more. The author has a wonderful writing style that draws you in, things are never as they seem and she keeps you on the edge of your seats, holding your breath waiting to see what she has in store for you. This author writes a compelling story about serious issues that are in the world today. She takes it very seriously but at the same time let’s her characters have a little fun which will keep you smiling. It is a well balanced story with wonderful characters, a wonderful plot that will pull you in and keep your interest. Saxby is on a mission to find out if a very wild resort is using a date rape drug. He isn’t there for any action his self but he does seem to find his self in a few compromising issues. He does have his hand full with Jennessy who seems to be throwing herself at him. All at once she seems to have more hands then he knows how to hold. Will our hero take her as her word for a little action or will he do the respectable thing? We now are pretty sure the date drug is being used, by who? Why? For what reason? What the heck is he going to do about Jennessy? What a lovely mess he is in since he doesn’t commit to long term relationships, but man she is something else. Jennessy what a mess she is, she just found her long term boyfriend in bed with some chic. What does she do, she breaks up and goes on their trip together without him. She was hoping to bring the passion back into the relationship by taking a walk on the wild side. That walk just might have been a little more wilder then she wanted to take. She gets in a few messes and Saxby will have to help her out in one way or another. Tina Wainscott is another one of my favorite authors who never lets me down. She is a wonderful storyteller who always keeps my interest. I am always waiting for her next book to be released and it is never soon enough. As an author Wainscott grows with each book she writes, each one better than the one before. I love this series and cannot wait for the next one.

I received an ARC of this book from the Publisher, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.  This is book 3 in the Justiss Alliance, and you can see my previous reviews here. Wild Nights picks up after Wild Ways with everyone (except Roth) settling into the Justiss Alliance, and the new relationships for the previous heroes/heroines. Saxonby "Sooch" Cole's new assignment is infiltrating a nude resort, as a mild mannered geek, in order to uncover a date rape scheme. It's the perfect job for the confirmed bachelor of the group. Jennessy Shaw scheduled this trip to spark things up with her long-term boyfriend, but when she catches him cheating on her, she decides to explore her wild side on her own. They are both instantly attracted, but between the miscommunications as well as Sax's feeling about fidelity, (he has some really crappy men in his family), they needless to say get off to a rocky start. But, when Jennessy (who has depths not seen at first glance) winds up in Sax's arms as a victim, all bets are off. The Justiss Alliance is like the A-Team, only with sex and romance, and in this case a nude resort. It's is a little campy, a little ridiculous and over the top, but plenty of fun. This latest installment, the writing seems to be somewhat smoother and overall the pacing issues I saw in the first books seem to be resolved. It looks like we are set up for Knox's book next, but I honestly find myself most curious about Roth.  Altogether, I enjoyed this book as I have enjoyed this series so far; however, there is one event with another woman on the resort. It seems like the author used this as a note that this isn't some unrealistic, not like real life plot line, but honestly, it came off as gratuitous and unnecessary. 3.5 stars and thus far, completely willing to go the distance with this series. There's nothing groundbreaking about it, but it is reasonably good entertainment.

This story grabs you from the beginning, as an introduction of a new ex-SEAL is added. Firstly, you had me at the hero is an ex-SEAL. Add in that the real issue of date rape drugs at a resort on an island and you have a gripping and suspenseful story. With the introduction of new characters and a tightly run story, it keeps you reading until the end.

Thrust together at a hedonistic resort, Saxby Cole (Ex-Seal/special ops) and Jennessy Shaw (recent college grad) will be in for a vacation that will never forget in Wild Nights. Saxby Cole was sent to the island to find out if the suspicions of date rape drugs were true. What he finds out will change his life and Jennessy’s forever. Jennessy planned a week away to spice up her romantic life with her boyfriend, a boyfriend she discovered was cheating on her. Taking the week alone, she quickly meets Saxby, a man that ignites something inside her. Saxby tries to hold her at arm’s length until they are thrust together by his investigation. The sexual chemistry could be cut by a knife, it is that thick but Saxby believes cheating is genetic and that he can never marry because he won’t be faithful. It is Jennessy’s job to try to convince him otherwise. The date rape drug use is devastatingly true and the situation is deplorable...much worse they anticipated by the special ops team. Together Jennessy and Saxby must traverse a trail of deception and denial. This story is Hedonism with a capital H. It surrounds the characters and is on the forefront of their minds.  I enjoyed this story but at times wanted to shake some major sense into Saxby. Jennessy was fun and willing to explore not just investigating but her wild side.  The story took a few unexpected twists and maintained a quick pace keeping me invested in the outcome.  Sexy, hot, and suspense filled, Wild Nights is an enchanting read.

Wild Nights by Tina Wainscott is the 4th book in her Justiss Alliance series and was filled with romance, passion and action. Saxby Cole is the charming southern bad boy of the SEAL team that has joined Chase Justiss' security corporation. He was brought up in a well-to-do southern family with 3 sisters. He has seen how unfaithful his father was to his mother and his father told him that it was in the Cole genes. He is one of the good guys but he's convinced himself that it's only when he is a SEAL or now working at TJA. Jennessey Shaw has just graduated from college with a degree in forensic science and broken up with her long time boyfriend after finding how he has been cheating on her. They were supposed to be going on this trip together to explore their relationship. She cancelled his flight and decided to come by herself to discover who she is and what she wants to do with her life. Tina doesn't mind addressing heavy issues in her books and this one about the sale of date rape drugs is no exception. Her plot was tight and her introduction of the characters at the beginning pulled me into the story and I never looked back. The plot twists and turns for Sax and Jennessey as they work together to find the evidence they need to bring this operation down. Tina did a great job of expanding on both Sax and Jennessey characters so that I got more and more involved with them as they explored their relationship and began to understand more about themselves. I am ready for the next book in this series as we still have 2 more SEAL team members to get to know. An ARC was provided by NetGalley and Random House in exchange for an honest review.

The only commitment Saxby Cole has ever made is to the SEALs. He follows a long line of Southern charmers who swear monogamy isn’t in their blood. He’s never met a woman who made him want to swear his allegiance—until, while undercover for a Justiss Alliance assignment, he finds a woman who makes him think twice. When Jennessy Shaw’s boyfriend dumps her right before their vacation to a hedonistic Caribbean resort, she goes without him to explore her wild side. Throwing caution to the wind, she propositions Saxby—only to suffer his gentle rejection. When she wakes in Saxby’s room with no memory of the night before, Jennessy discovers his real purpose: to sniff out an operation where women like her are drugged and prostituted to resort guests. She goes from victim to his investigative partner . . . but getting too close to the sexier-than-sin Saxby may be her wildest move yet. Praise for the Justiss Alliance series “Tina Wainscott delivers high-octane suspense and red-hot romance! Full of edge-of-your-seat action and red-hot passion, Wild on You is a souped-up roller coaster of a page-turner.”—Julie Ann Walker, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Black Knights Inc. series “Bad boys breaking rules and hearts and dishing up justice—Tina Wainscott nails it!”—New York Times bestselling author Cindy Gerard Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from an other Loveswept title. My Thoughts As a general rule reading books out of order in a series that has already been established is not a good idea, however in the past year my luck has held as authors are beginning to write more stand alone stories for characters that are already introduced but may not have been given much page time. I am not sure if that is the case with Saxby Cole not having read the previous 2 books and a novella in the series but hey sexy ex-Seal story, who can resist! After having finished with the scents and sounds of the Caribbean ocean still permeating the air around me can honestly say that this particular romantic suspense was a delight to the senses as well as in general a greatly entertaining way to explore the relationship that develops between Jennessy and Sax. From their first meeting the pair have chemistry, once the resort is reached though things become a little more complicated as the covert operation the has brought Sax together with Jennessy takes an ugly turn which brings out his protective instincts. This third book in the Justiss Alliance series takes a very serious plot that combines the best of both suspense and romance as it unfolds and brings it to life in a fantastic location that adds to it’s reading appeal. While did not feel the lack of reading prior works in this series it probably would have helped to bring understanding faster when prior events were mentioned. I thoroughly enjoyed the moments of brevity that pass between Jennessy and Sax as well as those he shares with his team members once they appear on the scene later on, this helped break up the tense moments during certain scenes where both Jennessy and Sax put their lives in jeopardy. After finishing any desire to take a tropical vacation has been erased, did enjoy the vivid location descriptions though. [EArc from Netgalley in exchange for honest review]
