Review: Wild Nights (Vegas Nights #3) by Karen Erickson




Join us in celebrating the final book in the Vegas Nights series with the release of WILD NIGHTS by Karen Erickson!





WILD NIGHTS (Vegas Nights Series #3) by Karen Erickson
Erotic Romance







A guy of her own? She’s not holding her breath—until he steals it away.

Vegas Nights, Book 3


Natalie’s girls-only weekend in Vegas is shot to hell, thanks to her friends ditching her for very sexy, very famous guys. Not that she blames them. She knows what lonely feels like. A nurse’s long hours leave little time for a social life.

Then she collides with and spills her drink all over a very fine, very exposed male chest. A chest belonging to Noah Wilde, lead singer for the infamous Wilde & Wicked rock band. Thankfully, he’s merely amused as she tries to take care of the mess she made.

Noah sure would like to make a mess of the gorgeous, petite lady with luminous blue eyes. There’s no resisting the urge to tempt her along for an adventurous night of gambling, drinking, eating, and sin.

But during the harsh light of day, Noah has a change of heart. Not about the fact he likes Natalie—a lot. He’s not sure he wants to drag this sweet lady through his sordid life. Even though sparing her could cost them both a chance at forever.

Warning: Contains a nurse who thought she knew all there was to know about anatomy, and a rock god who’s about to show her a few spots she missed. To say they both hit the jackpot would be an understatement.









My Review

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. 

Yay! Natalie & Noah's story! Just like the previous books, this story was short and sweet, but delivered the heat! 

Like their friends before them, Noah and Natalie meet at a party and are instantly attracted to each other. Noah is looking for normal and Natalie definitely fits the bill.  He is fascinated by her and she readily admits that she always has a crush on him. But this isn't Natalie fangirling all over the famous rock star. She is down to earth and while she can't believe that she is spending time with Noah Wilde, she also knows that this is a once and lifetime event. 

The two of them go gambling where Natalie actually wins lots of money and then go back to his room where the real fun begins. I loved the two of them together. Natalie had this innocence about her that paired so well with Noah's sexiness. She blushed at his dirty talk, but once given the opportunity to let her own sexy out, she definitely does. 

Noah is so taken with her (it was so freaking sweet) and his only goal is to make Natalie feel good. I found their weekend together to be so genuine. They eat ice cream sundaes and go for a walk on the Vegas strip, just like the other tourists. The whole thing was just so adorable. Unfortunately the real world is still there once the weekend ends and they go back to their own lives. BUT, neither of them can forget about the other and while I was expecting them to end up together, I was not expecting it to happen the way it did. 

I enjoyed this whole series and I will definitely be reading it again. Since all parts are novellas, this series is a great weekend/park/beach/any time read. 








Where it all started!




WICKED WEEKEND (Vegas Nights Series #.5) by Karen Erickson

Erotic Romance





What happens in Vegas…could be a fantasy come true.

Vegas Nights, Book 0.5


Between nursing school and starting their careers, Reagan, Andrea, and Natalie have had no time for dating. After saving up for a special vacation, they’re on their way to Vegas for a long-awaited weekend of fun, sun, gambling and partying.

When their luggage goes missing, an impromptu shopping trip leads them to James, who makes them an unusual offer—to be part of the female scenery at his boss’s upcoming party. Not just any scenery, but women who are pretty in a real way, not the nipped, tucked and dyed Hollywood version.

Accept a “private party” invitation from a complete stranger? These ladies weren’t born yesterday. Yet before “no thanks” crosses their lips, Reagan discovers who James’s boss really is: Declan Carter, an actor she’s crushed on for, well, forever. Now she’s determined to be the eye candy who catches Declan’s eye. No matter what it takes…




RECKLESS NIGHTS (Vegas Nights Series #1) by Karen Erickson
Erotic Romance




Sometimes dream crushes do come true.

Vegas Nights, Book 1

Reagan can’t believe her luck—and not in a good way. One minute she’s hanging out with her friends at an exclusive party in Las Vegas. The next, she’s attracted the attention of a famous actor. Not just any actor. Declan Carter, the man on which she used to—okay, might still—have a fangirl crush. Whose blue eyes leave her embarrassingly tongue tied.

All Declan wants is to meet a nice, normal woman who won’t use him as a stepping stone to fame. Something about Reagan tells him she could be that rare woman, and he follows his instinct to invite her back to his suite—where they proceed to have wild monkey sex. All. Night. Long.

What was supposed to be one night of no-regrets sex stretches out into a blissful weekend of two people who can’t get enough of each other. But when the glamour of Sin City wears off, they’re standing on the edge of a once-in-a-lifetime chance to turn a weekend fling into something lasting. Will they take the jump?




ENDLESS NIGHTS (Vegas Nights Series #2) by Karen Erickson

Erotic Romance






The sex is crazy good. Is it crazier to want something more?

Vegas Nights, Book 2

Andrea and her two best friends have shed their nurses scrubs for a long-awaited weekend in Las Vegas, and nothing—flight delays, lost luggage, or the slightly weird guy with the sketchy invite to an exclusive bash—is going to stop their fun.

Within minutes of arriving at the opulent party, she’s deep in conversation with gorgeous, funny Luke Nelson, wide receiver for the Seattle Seahawks. For some crazy reason, he can’t seem to keep his eyes—or hands—off her.

Luke isn’t looking for a hookup, he just wants to relax…until he gets one look at the classy brunette in the barely-there dress. One minute they’re talking, the next they’re all over each other in a dark corner. It’s like he’s an addict and she’s the fix he’s been searching for all his life.

One night of hot sex isn’t nearly enough. But after a weekend spent never more than a few inches apart, the time is quickly approaching when they’ll have to make a long-distance relationship work—or break it off.




USA Today bestselling author Karen Erickson writes what she loves to read - sexy contemporary romance. Published since 2006, she's a native Californian who lives in the foothills below Yosemite with her husband and three children.
