Blog Tour: That First Kiss (Night Calls #2) by J.C. Valentine


Mercurial and charming, Tate Larson is a rising author and playboy who has a different woman on his arm
every night of the week. Focused on his work, Tate has no plans to settle down any time soon. That is until he meets his pretty new assistant, Piper Donovan. 

Desperate to escape the promise of backwater living, Piper ditched her Alabama hometown and never looked back. That was almost two years ago. Now that she is out of a job and her bank account is running on fumes, she’s desperate to find a job, fast. She finds the break she is searching for when she lands a position at Bookish Temptations. A little dancing and a lot of drinks with the girls seem the perfect way to celebrate. After a brief but explosive encounter with a man she was never supposed to see again turns out to be the same man she will be bending over backwards to please, her every instinct tells her to run. But when running means leaving the life she has struggled so hard to create, Piper decides her only option is to continue working for the devastatingly sexy Tate Larson...even if it kills her. 

Unable to deny their growing attraction, they struggle to keep their distance in a relationship that requires anything but.

Meagan's Review:

Okay now onto my review. OH.MY.GOD. Can I tell you how much I absolutely LOVED LOVED LOVED this book!!!! I love the characters and their interactions and the tension and love and passion and fighting and bickering and family time and hawty steamy scenes. I'm pretty sure there isn't some part of this book that I didn't love. Okay so Piper is our main character and she recently left her job in search of a new one. She ends up interviewing for an assistant position. Now the awesome catch to this is that apparently the author is a huge S.O.B. and asshat and flies through assistants like a reader turns through pages of a book. Pretty quickly. Anyways because Piper is so desperate for this job, because she doesn't want to go back home to Alabama, she accepts the challenge of getting it through to Mr. Tate Larson and keeping this job. So what do girls do when they get a new job.....they go celebrate of course and drink and dance. My kind of girls. So the Piper and her friends hit up this club and are basically on the prowl (it's really kind of funny). During the night Piper feels a set of eyes on her and when she looks up and around she meets a beautiful set of blue eyes staring at her. Along with the sexy eyes and equally sexy man stands there. As the night goes on Piper ends up dancing and arms snake around her and sexy eyes is dancing with her. Well let me tell you these two bring on a whole new meaning of sex on the dance floor. Because it wasn't enough sexy eyes (his new nick name by the way) takes her off the dance floor and towards the women's bathroom. And yeah....let's just say they both walk away satisfied. However, an interesting thing happened when this whole encounter happened, sexy eyes didn't want to be kissed, but then later he ended up kissing her anyways....hmm....Anyways she doesn't get his name or number and he almost didn't grab her name, but they go their separate ways.

So her first day on the job Piper is told quite a few things about the famous Tate Larson and above anything else to not take his crap and in a sense she has free will to put him in his place. Now when I started reading this book I forgot about the little blurb and all and all I kept thinking is OMG sexy eyes is going to be Tate Larson. And as I kept reading I wasn't disappointed. I love when stories start off like this because you know there is going to be some awkwardness, lots of tension, passion, longing for one another, but can't or won't say and and then some stupidity and then maybe picking some of the pieces up. But honestly these stories are the best and I wasn't disappointed at all. And right away when Tate and Piper realized that they are going to work together he tries to fire her and the encounter is just amazing, because Piper really doesn't put up with his crap.

And pretty much this is how the story goes on. Tate calls Piper at all hours of the day, demanding stupid things from her and she fights it and argues, but most of the time she follows through. And amongst this there is a lot of sexual tension between these two. We learn more about why Tate is the man whore that he is and we learn a lot about Piper too. We also get to meet Tate's family. I love his mother!!! And for the most part most of Tate's family and it makes me wish I had a ton of brother's and sisters and sister-in-laws and brother-in-laws and little nieces and nephews and children running around. But Tate's family seems the be under the impression that Tate and Piper are together together instead of her just being his assistant. And this has both good and bad outcomes. There was a super sweet moment, especially by Tate, but the next day he lost the sweet moment. 

Throughout the book Tate does some pretty mean things to Piper and you can't help but feel her heartbreak because as hard as she's tried Tate made his way under her skin from the first night and the chemistry and the and passion between these two just can't be denied. There were so many times that I wanted to slap the crap out of him and I'm glad Piper did on a few occasions because his crass mouth stepped out of line. But that's a whole other story. So while Piper is somewhat trying to move on and just keep it professional with Tate she meets Thomas. I personally don't have anything against Thomas, but I don't like Piper with him. But you can tell he is extremely interested in her. And this does interesting things to Tate....a lot of scenes that were my favorite had Tate and Thomas in the same room together. 

I know this review is some what vague, but the problem is that I don't want to give away any of the good parts, because this book is soooooo worth reading. It's a great read and you find steaminess, love, passion, laughter, sadness, awww.....moments, slapping moments, OMG did he really just freakin do that? ugg...yeah he did, some awesome girlfriend moments (makes me envious and wish I had some close women like that) and so much more. This book packed it all in. Like I said a GREAT read. So make sure to go get your copy.
