About the Author
Christine d'Abo is hooked on romance. As a novelist and short story writer with over thirty publications to her name, including the immensely popular Long Shots series, the imagination is always flowing. She loves to exercise and stops writing just long enough to keep her body in motion too.

After her great-grandmother dies, research assistant Glenna finds herself doing some serious soul-searching. She's left with a letter from her great-grandmother encouraging her to step outside her comfort zone and have an adventure. Live life with no regrets.
After the funeral, Glenna stumbles across a pack of sex cards left at the cemetery. With her great-grandmother's words in mind, Glenna impulsively takes the cards with her and decides to embark on that adventure she's never had before.
When the book opens, Glenna's in a state of complacency. Her life isn't bad exactly, but it's not exciting or especially fulfilling. It's very much ruled by her work. When the sex cards come into her life, they shake up her existence and help her try new things that turn out to make her life so much better.
Eric is a professor at the university where Glenna works. She has had a crush on him for months but never pursued it. It turns out that the attraction is mutual. So when Eric overhears Glenna talking to her best friend about the sex cards--along with her desire to use the cards with Eric--he volunteers to help Glenna with her 30 Nights project. What follows are some seriously sexy (and fun!) times between the two of them.
I loved Glenna as a character. Her sense of humor really appealed to me. She's brilliant at her job, despite the fact that her boss doesn't appreciate her or acknowledge how important she is to his work. Glenna also has a fun and touching friendship with Jasmine, her BFF/coworker.
Eric is a pretty swoon worthy character. He's reserved and brooding at times, but once Glenna gets to know him, he lets down his guard little by little. The real Eric is charming, a little wicked, and so appealing. But he also has some secrets from his past that he's not keen on sharing with anyone--especially Glenna. When their casual arrangement starts to turn into something deeper, Eric and Glenna find themselves wanting more than just fun and games with each other.
30 Nights has everything I love in a romance novel: humor, sexy times aplenty, and characters who I grew to care about. Christine d'Abo is so great at nailing people's emotions. Like 30 Days, this book is filled with moments of laughter mixed with heartache. It's a precarious mix that she does an amazing job of balancing. There are scenes in this book where I laughed with the characters, only to get teary-eyed on the next page. I just love books that can make me feel everything from sadness to joy.
It's not strictly necessary to read 30 Days in order to enjoy 30 Nights, but I strongly encourage you read them together because they're both amazing and they tie in together very well. I highly recommend 30 Nights and hope to read lots more from this author in the future.
I received an advance copy of this book from NetGalley.
I felt this story was well written and that you really felt what the characters were going through.
"You've walked by my office every day for the past year. I'v begun the recognize the sound of your gait. I know it's you and not someone else. You laughter will sometimes reach my office and I can't help but wonder what had made you smile. He looked awkward with his admission."
I really enjoyed 30 Nights from Christine d'Abo and can confirm it can easily be read as a standalone, as I have yet to read the previous novel 30 Days. I absolutely adored reading from Glenna's perspective, she's aware of her flaws, but uncomfortable at putting herself out there. It's clear she surrounds herself with friends more social than herself, unaware of the vibrant nature she too possesses. It was really refreshing to read the character development of Glenna, from meek to confident and assured. Then there's Eric, our handsome hero with a past that you won't guess. I get nervous when I read about a male character wanting just sex and no relationship, but Christine d'Abo tackled that with such finesse. He really is an enigmatic character and, though we don't read from his perspective, it was very clear he was dealing with some things. The way both Glenna and Eric find companionship and the strength to tackle some of their fears together by using sex was really enjoyable to read, especially once the feelings came into place. Mix in the workplace drama and things just take off from there. The book definitely has some twists and the sex-relationship between these two is very hot and cold, but it's a story you don't want to miss.
"Professor. I hope the rest of your evening was enjoyable."
"It was. I had a bit of a run-in with a remote control, but I eventually bent it to my will."
30 Nights totally tugged at my heartstrings, I really liked the relationship that developed between Glenna and Eric, but I could have totally done with more interactions. While it is briefly touched on and we know they spent time together, we don't get to experience those times together so it comes across as pure smut. There is one major plot twist near the end that I also would have loved to see fleshed out, it felt too simple and tied up too easily for how significant a moment it was. It weakened my view of Glenna in the end, though it strengthened my view of others.
"I'm so glad you enjoyed the movie." He started to walk away. "We'll have to make sure that you come again for the sequel."
I wish I had read 30 Days prior to 30 Nights, but I will definitely be going back and doing so now. I absolutely recommend 30 Nights to readers looking for a sexual read with a very real plot. You'll feel hot with desire, laughing at their antics, and then hurting for their struggles, it's all very balanced. I think you'll find yourself wrapped up in the 30 cards and where they lead two lost individuals, I definitely was.
