I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review
Oh man another Dani Wyatt book for me to devour! It is no secret that Dani Wyatt is a new favorite of mine, so when an ARC came available for this novella I jumped right on it. As always I was not disappointed. Just until morning is a witty love story that is proves the point that fate can decide our path just as easily as we can decide our own.
This novella is centered around Holli a down on her luck college student who is just looking for a way to her happily ever after. She needs just one more big score in order to make all her dreams come true, and that is when she waltzs right into Lincoln Kirk’s poker room. However, Holli never expected to run into 3 bullies to be in the hole to Lincoln before the end of the night. That is when Lincoln decided that Holli was going to be his and he knew just the way to ensure that she would be, even if it was just for one night.
This novella is full of the insta yumminess that Wyatt is known for, however what we are not used to is how the fates are aligning. It seems as if fate has it owns plans for this two. Wyatt does an amazing job of showing us that Holli and Lincoln were meant for each other before they even knew it. Holli has had dreams about Lincoln for years prior to meeting him and Lincoln instantly knew that he yearned for Holli in his life the minute he laid eyes on her before he walked into her poker room. Wyatt also does an amazing job of weaving secondary plot lines into the main story line seamlessly without interrupting the flow or overshadowing in any way. Wyatt does an amazing job of keeping us interested in Holli and Lincoln’s story even after we get our one crazy night of insane smuttiness to the point that we are all awaiting what will happen and if these two are able to get their happily ever after.
As always Wyatt is high up on my list of authors to recommend for others to read, and is not an exception. Not only does this novella have the hot and steamy love scenes that Wyatt is known for but also had a major dose of heart that helps us all remember that fate has it own way of doing things. Sometimes we just have to be patient and wait our turn.
Until next time,
