Part of a series but stands alone, HEA, epilogue.
After reading a lot of so-so erotic romance, it's always such a relief when a Roni Loren book comes along. She handles adult romances so well and shows her couples actually communicating and the heroine isn't trapped in too-stupid-to-live-land.
Great opening chapter - flying fruit bowl and all.
Awesome sex scenes - olive oil and oranges will be on your next grocery list.
Lots of funny lines highlighted.
Use of office supplies in unusual ways!
Slow buildup to the bdsm side of things and Kade's needs.
Temporary menage scene, Kade's friend invited.
Glimpses of previous characters from the Loving On The Edge series.
There are bdsm elements to this book that may make some people uncomfortable, for me, it's the stuff I look for in erotic romance so I was happy to see it incorporated as many erotic authors seems to shy away from it. Everyone's kink is different!
Thanks Roni for ramping up the the kinkiness right at the end! Nice way to finish off the book...ahem.
So if you were ever the shy nerdy one in high school, in love with the jock or the cheerleader and dreamt about snagging him or her later in life when you're successful and making your moves........Need You Tonight by Roni Loren is written JUST FOR YOU.
If you were the princess or the jock, stuck with a jerk or a snob and wished you could be with the one that was your best friend, that made you laugh, that let you be YOU-- and if you'd snap them up for yourself if they were standing in front of you right now- Need You Tonight is for YOU!
"In high school, Tessa was the popular girl who stuttering, awkward Kade fell for. But she chose another. Now, as she eagerly learns lesson after lesson, he’s going to make sure she never forgets him again."
Another five star read for me from Roni and this time I really, really mean it.
There are some themes in this book that remind me so much of my upbringing. My parents are deeply religious, so I understand Tessa’s past, both with her foster parents (expected to be the good girl, told what good girls do and don’t do) and with her ex-husband Doug, a preacher who is expected to uphold a certain standard but is diddling everything on two legs in the background. Having grown up in the church with a front row view of what really happens once the Pastor says Amen, I was engrossed in Roni’s interpretation of being embroiled in something sinister and nasty. And those two words exactly describe Doug, a man who is pilfering from a charity and his congregation but wanting Tessa to fall on her sword so he doesn't have to pay the consequences.
I could also really relate with Kaden–not the suave, debonair business man Kade, but Kaden– the outcast, the stutterer, but the smart kid that every one leaned on to keep their grades up so they could remain on their various sports teams or stay in the parent’s good graces. I remember being that girl that was smart so I was asked for help at every turn, but never asked to the parties or get-togethers. No one knew about the crushes I had on various boys… no one paid attention to me until they needed something from me. And then tossed me away into the pile of people only midly necessary for comfort of life. So yes, I understood Kade, at the core.
When Kade and Tessa reconnect many years later,they’re both so different that they don’t recognize each other. Tessa doesn't recognize Kade since he’s all grown up and using a different name. She doesn't know it’s him, the stuttering kid that tried to compete for her with Doug… until he confronts her with their past and gives her the chance to go back to a time when life was as simple as really liking a guy and not being able to do anything about it.
Kade has his own secrets and problems. His nasty divorce and kinky lifestyle brought problems for him, one of which is that he doesn't have custody of his daughter and isn't allowed to see her. His “deviant” behavior might rub off on her, so she’s not even allowed in his home. When Doug crashes his way back into Tessa’s life, he uses Kade’s situation to lure her back to Atlanta. By this point she has been introduced to life as a Submissive and her teacher, Kade, is showing her what life can be like when you own your desires and fantasies and are open to a life of more than boring, vanilla, missionary sex.
Tessa has a plan, though. And with Kade’s help, they’ll bring Doug to his knees. Almost literally.
I feel like this book went so far, so deep into the psychology of need, both Tessa’s and Kade’s. Lots of introspective, thoughtful dialog in this book and it seems like a lot less sex? Well, maybe I’m just getting used to the kink. ;)
I continue to be really pleased with how the Ranch is used for pleasure, for games, for erotic enhancement and not as something mean or punishing. Everyone involved is consenting and everything that happens, happens because it is wanted. I've tried reading other BDSM themed novels and there’s so much sadism, mean spirited sex. Doesn't sound pleasurable or enjoyable and there’s no delight in reading it. There is no care, no love, no need to protect and please. Roni’s approach to Dominance/submission and BDSM makes all the difference.
Plus, I always get a chuckle or two in each chapter because she’s actually a very funny person.
Can’t wait for the next book!
Although I’ve enjoyed every book in Roni Loren’s Loving On The Edge series so far, NEED YOU TONIGHT is the best one I’ve read since the very first book, CRASH INTO YOU, blew me away and made me an instant Roni Loren fan. It equals that book in both the emotional intensity of the “second chance at love” trope for its hero and heroine, and in the sweetness of its HEA for a couple who could never move completely past the evil which separated them in high school until they were finally able to face it down together.
When Kade Vandergriff catches Tessa McAllen trying to crash a singles cooking class at his restaurant, he has no idea that she’s the one who turned his world upside down so many years ago. All he sees is an incredibly attractive woman whom he wants to feed and bed, and not necessarily in that order. Tessa doesn’t recognize Kade either, but is quickly convinced that one perfect night of no-strings-attached sex is just what she needs after trying to rebuild her life in the wake of her lousy no-good husband’s betrayal. When Tessa’s true identity is revealed, Kade is determined to rewrite their sad shared history into a future where she realizes what a mistake she made by rejecting him for the man who would eventually betray her. But when their ugly past returns to threaten their present happiness, both Tessa and Kade will learn that even the most malevolent evil is no match for the love they never truly lost.
As wonderful as Tessa and Kade’s story is, readers should be aware that there are themes in NEED YOU TONIGHT which are potential triggers for those with special sensitivity to issues such as high school bullying, child abuse, and rape. Both Tessa and Kade suffered brutal childhoods, which helped them bond together at first, but ended up splitting them apart when the friendship threatened their survival. When they find each other again, it’s clear that although they have both grown emotionally, the scars of the past are still as real and raw as though no time had passed at all. But Kade refuses to let his past self define his present, and he will do everything in his power to show Tessa that what they had before was just the beginning, even as the danger to their lives and love is always lurking in the background.
NEED YOU TONIGHT is a beautiful and touching romance, with plenty of the perfectly written and seriously scorching sex scenes which are Roni Loren’s trademark. It’s easily one of the finest books I’ve read this year.
Overall: 5 stars
Sensuality level: 4 (BDSM scenes, domestic violence, rape threats, discussion of previous assault and rape)
Top reviews from other countries
Disregarding BDSM motive that goes throughout the whole series, the back story in this novel is amazing. Kade and Tessa had a crash on each other in high school. But he was a resident geek, and she was a foster kid cheerleader dating a popular jock who promised to take care of her, and stuff happened, so they were just not meant to be.
Years later, Kade is a kinky, self-assured, dominant billionaire whom we know from previous books in the series. He has everything he wants apart from his darling daughter whom his ex-wife keeps away from him because of his sexual choices.
Tessa divorced her jock and as an ex-trophy wife she has to start from scratch building her career and self-assurance. She meets Kade in one of his restaurants and sparks fly although they do no recognise each other.
Like in all Roni Loren books, the connection between the main characters is believable, super hot and very romantic. I also enjoy that the BDSM relationship in bed doesn't mean that Kade tries to control Tessa's life choices. He goes out of his way to make her feel more in control of her life, more confident, and at the crucial moment he trusts her enough to step aside and let her deal with her demons on her own.
This is beautiful, people. If you haven't tried Roni Loren yet, please do.
All of the books in this series are stand-alones (with the exception of the e-series novellas) but old, well-loved, familiar characters make their presence felt in all of them and if you haven't read any of them before I would suggestion reading them in order - not only to familiarise yourself with the characters but because their are all hotter than heck!
The book itself had a different feel to it, as far as I was concerned, with the present and flashbacks to the past merging together to explain Kade and Tessa's past connection and how that impacts on their reconnection.
It was a very hot, steamy, read but does contain a heck of a lot of s*x along with D/s BDSM, some of which may be a little too graphic for nervous readers!
Thoroughly enjoyed it, will be reading it again soon and can't wait for the next one in the series.
His story and Tessa's story is heartbreaking and cruel and also sexy they are another couple who meet early on in life and meet up later again but you know they are meant to be together and I hated Tessa for what she done to Kade early on in his life but I'm bias love does that but dont judge her read the whole book have opinion but there is reasons no one knows until its all out in the open and boy what a story for both
Also Colby makes a very sexy appearance int his book another Dom who has a sexy drawl boy Roni hit it on the nail with this book the sex scenes she write about has been fantasies for almost every women around the world
Another 5 stars for Kade alone now if only he and Wyatt could do one together with me I'm game lol
Again not disappointed..
Loved kades story would never have guessed his journey would be so heart wrenching from the glimpses we had of him in previous books..
Makes me want to let him take control..
Hoping for Sam's story next, or colbys..
Another amazing book..
Definitely recommend you read it.
The fact that the characters from the series keep appearing in the stories feels like your catching up with old friends.
I love Roni Loren's style of writing and can't wait to see who we get to meet next.
