She wants one night. He wants her forever.

Hayden Summers just landed the job of a lifetime taking pictures for Time magazine, but she’s determined to leave with no regrets. The first thing on her list? Erase the memory of her cheating ex with a wild night of anonymous sex. The second? Figure out why her best friend, sexy bar owner Jace Jennings, stopped speaking to her the night she told him about the job.

Jace has a problem. Hayden isn’t just leaving the country, she’s risking her life—just when he’s realized he’s in love with her. When fate traps them in the storage room of his bar together, barely contained desire simmers to surface. In one last attempt to keep her, Jace offers Hayden the one thing she wants: a night of hot sex, no strings attached. But when the night is over, will Jace be able to let her go? And will Hayden leave with her heart intact?

Jace had me during the body shot scene with his over protective attitude.

“Wait. What are you doing?”

“A shot.” He leaned close enough to whisper in her ear. “Or would you rather me beat the shit out of some poor guy for putting his mouth on you?”

Not only is best friends turn to lovers one of my favorite genre but an over protective best friend is a bonus. Jace and Hayden have been best friends since their school days and he has been looking out for her ever since. Would love to have a sexy tattoo best friend like Jace looking out for my well being. No Strings Attached had enough insight on their friendship growing up.
Hayden and Jace sure steamed up my e-reader and loved them together. The body shot scene is the best. The first time they kissed was a misunderstanding and loved how it was done.
The secondary characters I adored. Lilly is her friend and Nate is Jace’s brother, both are fun and out going. Nate I am curious about. He left when their mother was sick and has never been the same when he came back. Lilly is not a big fan of Nate and calls him the Antichrist. They really do not interact through out the novel but curious as to why she thinks this. Makes me think she might have a little crush on him.
I am now a new fan of Nicolette Day. Love her writing style. Excited she writes YA novels under Tara Fuller and already had Inbetween (Kissed By Death #1) on my wish list.
I usually do not rate short novella’s more than 3 stars - Liked It, because something is always missing, but Nicolette Day had me falling for Jace in the beginning and the story line fell nicely through out the novel. Love it when a good book has a sexy cover and No Strings Attached has a sexy-eye-catching cover. Please Nicolette Day I am begging this to be a series and Nate’s story to be next and longer.

  1. OMG this one was defiantly steamy, phew! I also think novellas are often missing something but not this one!
    I'm with you, I love best friends turned lovers stories & hopefully there will be a sequel for Nate & Lilly - an enemies turned lovers story, which I also LOVE!!! Great review :)

  2. Oh this one is so going on my wishlist next. Not bad at all for a novella. I love the ones where they've known each other forever and can't wait to read more about this body shot scene. Great review!!
