About the Unfinished Nights – Complete Duet:
BEFORE THAT NIGHT:
Before that night, Addison Milan had been just a college dropout secretly raising her two young siblings in a beat-up minivan she’d bought with her first semester’s tuition refund–the only money her addict mother hadn’t taken off with when she’d abandoned them nearly two years ago.
Before that night, Caine Spencer had been just a rough, gruff cop sent to check out the phoned-in claims of suspected child neglect involving the same woman he’d met just months prior when she’d first served him the city’s worst diner coffee…which he’d been drinking daily ever since.
Before that night, Addison would never have thought the man she’d been fighting hard not to fall for–her only friend in her new shadow of a life–would be in a position to rip her family apart.
Before that night, Caine would never have believed any woman could make him fall head over heels, let alone make him feel so damn compelled to look the other way when it came to his job.
Then that one perfect night changed everything.
EVERY NIGHT WITHOUT YOU
Seven damn years of wondering whether the woman was still alive…whether she’d spent the last two thousand five hundred fifty-five days wondering if he was still alive.
Wondering whether that night was as burned into her memory as it was his.
Seven years having his heart tethered to Addison―and now she’s back. With even more reasons to run than she’d had then.
Only this time, Caine isn’t letting the gorgeous little flight risk out of his sight.
Regardless of how noble her reasons may be.

Caine stopped with his hand on the doorknob and studied her for a bit, with those deep, stormy eyes of his that always saw too much, read her too well. Then, he quietly pushed open the door to the darkened room and walked in.
But he made no move to flick on the light switch.
Instead, he simply stood there, just inside the doorway, holding the door open for her silently, waiting for her to decide if she wanted to go into the pitch-blackness with him.
Addison knew the choice to step over that threshold, into the unknown, was symbolic of so much more than what he was asking in that moment…a fact she was certain hadn’t escaped him.
He didn’t back down. But he didn’t push, either.
“Alec thinks there’s no way you and I can be friends,” she whispered, in a feeble attempt to keep them away from a ledge they’d be tempted to jump off of, where there would be no coming back from. “This is sort of an experiment he’s conducting to prove his hypothesis.”
“Did I mention I hated that ‘just friends’ idea from the start?”
Yeah. Her too.
“You want to know what I was thinking about when you suggested it?” he continued, reaching up to put his forearm against the door jamb, crowding the opening with his broad, six-foot frame.
She shouldn’t. No good could possibly come from being allowed inside Caine Spencer’s head. “Yes.”
The gravelly rumble of his voice turned hypnotic. “I was remembering how those soft, sexy sounds you’d make when I’d kiss you on your neck—right where that new tattoo is—would test me, nearly break me of my control every time.”
When his eyes began tracing intently over the lines of her tattoo, the air in her lungs thinned, and slipped past her lips before she could stop it.
His jaw tightened, and his forearms flexed. Once. Twice. Before his voice dropped a full octave lower. “A test. Every. Single. Time.”
Oh God, she wasn’t going to make it.
He took a step back.
She followed him in.
I was blown away by Before That Night. It’s only the beginning of Addison and Cain’s journey, but what a beginning it was! Addison Milan has secrets. She also has HUGE responsibilities. Responsibilities that she took on selflessly. She’s a young woman with a huge heart and a lot of backbone. Cain Spencer takes notice! And so their journey begins…
As you know, this is part one of a duet. So the journey doesn’t end with this book but this book doesn’t really end in what you would normally call a cliffhanger. It’s a fork in the road. It’s a pause in the story. It’s a change in direction for Addison and Cain. It was very well done. It has shock-value, but if you pay attention, you should see it coming ….
Every Night Without You was equally as powerful as Before That Night. Seven years have passed but the force pulling Cain and Addison towards each other is just as strong as ever. The angst level goes up a few notches with this half of the story for sure and there’s a twist that even I didn’t see coming and I pay really close attention!
Overall, I have to say that (author) did a really great job with this duet. It’s a very relatable love story of sacrifice and determination. The language in the stories could have been a bit less cheesy and the sexy sexy could probably not have been dragged out so much in Every Night Without You, but this is still a solidly good book.
