    The sex in this novel was great. Super hot. Love angst? Plenty of it. So what was the problem? Based on those two aspects, you would think you'd have a recipe for a successful romance novel, but nope, couldn't be more wrong.

    The author's note said that she wanted to write a story about two people who clearly were right for each other, but needed the time to figure it all out. But you know what? After reading the entire book, I actually don't think they're right for each other. I don't think they're the same Happily Ever After (HEA) couple everybody reads in romance novels. They're not even a special type of HEA. They're not a HEA couple, period. The two characters have completely different dreams from each other: One was a traveller, and one was a homebody. The female in the story even said: men are like frozen glaciers, they take a long ass time to melt and change. All through their 12 hour lockdown in a shopping mall without electricity, where they just talked and talked (and had sex) I still couldn't find enough similarities or chemistry between them to believe that these two can be a married HEA couple. Yeah, sure, they have off-the-charts hot sex, but even the woman in the story said it herself, romance goes beyond sex, and all the talking these two did in the mall felt sort of a forced attempt to reconcile so the author could wrap things up, instead of the characters naturally belonging to each other in a typical HEA.

    Aside from the problems I had with the two main leads, their romance and their HEA, I had problems with the first some chapters of the story. Sure, I never considered myself a feminist, but after reading this novel, maybe I should start because there are more than a few sentences where the author implied/suggested that it was the woman's own fault for dressing up so particularly or looking a certain way that made the male characters lust after her. Sure, appearance definitely has something to do with it, but the way the author wrote these sentences made me feel as if the men outright blamed the woman for appearing a certain way that tempted them to want to ravage them right then and there.

    Yes, it's a romance novel, and appearance does matter in sex, so this kinda thing shouldn't surprise me, but the way the author wrote it, it was like it's the woman's fault for wearing those red heels and that skirt, if only she didn't. Idk. Maybe I'm reading too much into this. I just didn't like the way Jason was characterised in the first half of the book. Like he was some Tarzan beast or something. The character development to turn him from a Tarzan beast into a Tarzan with a heart just wasn't believable enough for me to believe in the rest of his words in the last few chapters of the story.

    This is one blazing hot book and I loved it Tawny writes such awesome stories Jason and Larissa were so made for each other. Loved the theme of being locked in a mall and no elecrticity for the night candles and chocolate set the scene.

  3. Judy & Marianne from Long and Short Reviews Judy & Marianne from Long and Short Reviews says:

    What does a giant koteka, painted on chocolate and guilt have in common? A man and a woman who fell in love so fast they forgot a few basic ingredients to a relationship and have a second chance to get it right.

    I liked how the author introduced each character at their current point in their lives. I found it interesting that although these two people crossed paths before and went their separate ways, like a boomerang, they’re coming full circle. But have they learned anything at all in the intervening years? Ms. Weber did a good job of making me want to find out.

    Larissa has dreams and is determined to make them come true. I found it telling that she was so nervous and jittery and full of self doubts. Her best friend is a wonderful sidekick in the beginning and comes through for her in a roundabout way further in the story. But before that can happen, a reader gets to see some interesting and revealing aspects of Larissa’s personality. How easy it is to feel justified about things when there’s no one around that can argue back. In this story, the heroine is about to be corrected on quite a few things – and reminded about some of the best.

    Jason is also on a course correction in his life. He’s confident, he’s focused and he has a huge responsibility that is making him rethink a lot of things in his life. He’s also going to have to do some serious growing up during the course of this tale which was fascinating to watch. He’s a man who has done many exciting things in his life. He certainly knows his way around a woman’s body but he is flawed where it most counts. I thought it was so romantic that a woman who had the power to hurt him also had the power to heal and give him a reason to grow. Ms. Weber had him fighting tooth and nail against that happening and he certainly wasn’t above playing sneaky to get his way.

    The conflict is strictly internal but there’s an external influence that forces the issue. Personally, I thought it was rather sweet. There really isn’t any actual sheet action because, well, there weren’t any bed sheets. The author sure was creative with what Larissa and Jason did have at their disposal. I thought Ms. Weber did an awesome job of creating sensual tension so taut, it hurt. I also liked that despite the bruised feelings and the personal angst they had to work through, there was plenty of humor and tender moments to make me believe Jason and Larissa were good for each other.

    I thought the place of the blackout was unique and I enjoyed how the author explored the possibilities. I even liked Larissa’s internal dialogue pep talks. I giggled when she screamed and fanned myself with what came after but in between was pure emotion and sentiments that grabbed this reader’s heart.

    Just for the Night is a romance with humorous zing spiced with delicious heat and heartfelt emotions. I was entertained throughout the entire book and it was a great reading experience. Ms. Weber’s sense of kink is honed to a fine edge with some tongue in cheek giggles thrown in to keep it lively; yet it never lost sight of the goal of having two hurt people find love and healing in the darkness. I really enjoyed reading this book and to top it off the happily ever after satisfied me. What more could a romance reader ask?originally posted at http://longandshortreviews.blogspot.c...

    B612 May11 24 hours: Blackout. Larissa Zahn has been planning and working to having her own book store. She also thought she had the love of her life in Jason Cantrell, until Jason accused her of cheating. It wasn't love if didn't trust her. He has an adventure business with his brother Peter. They want to open Can-Do Adventures in the same space she wants for her romance store. Due to the blackout they are locked in the empty mall.

  5. Mandi Schreiner Mandi Schreiner says:

    Larissa is known for romance. She turned an online romance column into a job for Cosmopolitan Magazine. But she now has her sights set on opening a retail store where books, movies, music and everything else a woman would need for romance could go – and she knows just the space. The Cartright Hotel has one opening left in its ritzy retail space, and Larissa wants it, badly. She meets with Conner Cartright who is not only part owner, but a childhood friend who has kept in touch. She actually broke up with her fiancé Jason two years ago, because he thought she was having an affair with Conner.

    Unknown to Larissa, Jason also has his eye on this space for his Can-Do adventure travel company. With his brother set to get married and leave the business, and a mother in an assisted living center, Jason needs the mass promotional appeal Cartright hotel can give his company to keep his costs in line. Conner feels bad about what happened those couple of years ago and sets up a surprise meeting with Jason and Larissa as they both make a play for this space. When the power goes unexpectedly out, Jason and Larissa get trapped in the future store for the night. Luckily, Larissa has a bag stock full of romance items for display that get put to good use.

    Just For The Night takes place – well, just for one night and a lot happens relationship wise in such a short period. Larissa and Jason have a lot of trust issues to overcome based on their past relationship. Jason was very jealous of Larissa’s friendship with Conner and walked away without communicating with Larissa. In these hours they are locked in together, everything gets hashed out. It is heavy on the sexual overtones. Every glance, every movement, every sentence seems to be filled with overflowing lust between these two. Since Larissa had brought in merchandise to show Conner, they have condoms and chocolate body paint to make the night much more enjoyable. Throughout the night they make out, then go back to serious talking, then make out again. The make out sessions are pretty hot and the overall tone of the book is very light. The characters are easy to like, even if the set-up is not quite my favorite.

    I would have liked this one even better if all of their problems had not been 100% resolved by the end of one night together. On the road to happiness, sure. But to declare love and marriage after one night locked in a mall is a little too abrupt for me. Otherwise, this is light, cute and sexy.

    Just For The Night is part of the 24 Hours: Blackout series by Tawny Weber and a Romance from Harlequin Blaze.

    Book Blurb:

    Things to Do in a Blackout...

    Power outages happen, and you have to be prepared. After all, you could be trapped somewhere - like in an empty store - with your ex. Who is still irresistible. And hot. And who knows how to make the most out of a dark situation.

    Checklist for: Larissa Zahn

    * Food
    *First aid kit (With condoms. Be prepared. Very, very prepared.)
    *Someone you’re still overwhelmingly into (Jason Cantrell, I’m looking at you.)
    *Plenty of time in the dark ( Read: hot nookie. Lots of it.)
    **The ability to walk away without regrets in the morning...(Uh-Oh!)

    24 Hours: Blackout
    No lights. No power. And no holding back...

    My thoughts:

    Larissa Zahn is pursuing her dream. She wants to open her own store - a store for Romance. Movies, books, music, candles, lingerie - all things meant to evoke Romance. So what if her own love life is in the dumps?

    Hoping to snag the last available vendor spot in a new hoity-toity hotel, Larissa gathers everything she needs to make her presentation for ‘Isn’t It Romantic’. She is crossing her fingers that knowing the owner will make her a shoe in for the spot.

    Jason Cantrell and his brother run their own business: Can-Do Adventure and Jason is looking to expand the business by tying in to the new hotel that has come to town. He is on his way to a meeting with the owner, who happens to be an old friend of his brothers. He is sure to get the available spot.

    Larissa and Jason have a history and they did not part on the best of terms. When they realize that they are both vying for the same vendor space - tempers flare and sparks fly.

    Just For The Night is a fun, quick read. I really enjoy Ms. Weber’s writing: her characters are easy to relate to, the dialogue witty and charming and the story steamy. :)

    I give Just For The Night 4 out of 5 stars.

    Just for the Night by Tawny Weber
    * I received this ARC free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

    Just for the Night finds Larissa and Jason locked in a high end mall all night with nothing but each for company. Larissa is meeting with Conner about the last retail space he has in the mall attached to his new hotel. She wants that space to open a romance store and she has convinced herself this is just what she needs to get over her ex-finance.

    Jason has flown in to meet with the owners of the hotel and pitch his business idea for the same retail space. He is sure that his smooth talking ways will convince them to give it to him and his brother, until he realizes that he will have to deal with Conner.

    Larissa can’t believe it when Jason walks into the boardroom. Desires long forgotten slammed into her but she never let it show, she was a professional and determined to act like one. Jason is more determined than ever to get the space now that he knows who his competition is.

    The two of them are locked in the mall when a storm causes a blackout. They both want out because being together stirs up too many memories. After several hours the couple finds some interesting ways to pass the time. They discover they still have a connection but can’t work through their difference so they can try again.

    I really liked this book. The sexual chemistry between Larissa and Jason was there from the beginning. When they finally came together it was very hot, made me what to get my own little jar of chocolate.

    I think being locked in together forced them to not only look at what went wrong in their relationship but to also look inward at their self. They both made mistakes in the relationship but until they are forced to face it they can never move on. There was so much blame on both sides that until they can get past that all they have is one night.

    Larissa comes to the realization that Jason wasn’t the only one running from their relationship. Jason still loves her and realizes that he can still have his adventures, even if he’s married.

    Overall I really enjoyed Just for the Night and give it 4 Flaming Hearts.

    The heroine Larissa is about to take her career one step further with the hope of winning an empty store in a brand new hotel. After she has given her pitch she is left trapped in the hotel due to a city wide blackout with the hero Jason. Jason is also hoping to win the empty store as a base for his own business. Jason and Larissa were engaged a few years back, which ended badly, very badly, after Jason was led to believe Larissa cheated on him. Larissa was deeply hurt that Jason could accuse her of this and ended the relationship without explaining it, since she has reinvented her career and herself, but still hasn't completely gotten over Jason. While they are trapped together all their past issues and chemistry bubble up, resulting in passionate arguments and even more passionate sex. However they both know it can only for for one night as they both want to be able to move on.

    I really liked the idea of the story; throwing together two ex's in an inescapable situation and seeing how they handle it. If the two characters had parted amicably when they broke up previously and just had a night of steamy 'ex sex' then this would not have been as interesting. Neither of the two characters had closure with their relations, so what resulted was some intense and emotional scenes. The sex was every bit as steamy as you would expect from a good Blaze, there was even chocolate body paint, need I say more...!
    The author managed to write some great character growth, what I particularly liked is how they dealt with both the issues that drove them apart as well as their own personal issues. I will say that their almost constant arguing did get a bit tedious after a while, although it is very believable to the situation.

    Current Harlequin authors seem to focus on communication more. I truly appreciate this. What I really love about romance novels is the exploration of human behavior. Larissa has been hurt by Jason in the past. At the present time, the only thing these two having going for them is excellent sex. They were almost married but he accused her of cheating and she didn’t defend herself because he should trust her. The author does a great job of showing how we go wrong in relationships. We don’t communicate. We misunderstand but wallow in self-righteousness at the trueness of our version of events. And more than anything we don’t want to get hurt. We got hurt, it hurt like hell and it devastated us. How are you supposed to trust again? What if you’re the problem? Why is it that you are attracted to these awful people anyway? Everyone tries to weigh the balance between how much hurt can you survive and how much hurt is it worth. Another interesting aspect of this novel is how do you maintain love in the Happily Ever After? I may to have try reading romances that start after the declaration of commitment or marriage.

    I tried to read this. I really did. I even made it through half the first chapter.

    But that's pretty much where it ended.

    Maybe it's because the writer is too wordy... no, no that's pretty much it. The writer is obnoxiously wordy. She talks and narrates so much that it slows down the pace of the story. I want to read a good story that keeps a good pace between action and dialogue. She doesn't do this well.

    In fact, she doesn't do it at all. She's taking so much time describing and explaining where she needs to push forward. It hinders the reader.

    I couldn't stay focused. Shit, even my own writing is better than this. I haven't seen any errors in her writing, but then again, I barely read anything. If the writer's too busy narrating, describing, and explaining the characters than to keep up the pace of the story and enthrall the reader, then obviously the sex is going to be annoying too.

    I hate annoying sex. I want good sex, not people having to yap their lips off during it all. Mouths belong on bodies, and vocals need to be moaned. This writer doesn't do it right.

    Certainly not worth keeping.
