Second chances really do exist…

As the founder of a multimillion-dollar international security business, Carson Bad exposes secrets for a living. He knows better than to forge relationships built on them. But for years he did just that with his best friend, and secret lover, Tawny Bishop. She brought a sense of calm and understanding to his life–in and out of the bedroom. Until one fateful night when a knock at the door changed everything.

Tawny is no longer a naive college student. She’s a sought-after perfumer living in Paris. She has plenty of resources at her fingertips, and lots of lonely nights to think about the only man she’s ever loved–the one she ran away from all those years ago. She needs to move forward with her life, but how can she when Carson still owns her heart?

Maybe showing up in the middle of the night unannounced isn’t the best route to unraveling the past and figuring out her future, but Tawny has played it safe for ten long years, and it’s only made her long for the man she never should have walked away from. Now she’s back in Carson’s life, and he’s determined not to make the same mistake twice. If only he knew what that mistake was…

It was his kiss, his touch, and the promise of so much more in his rich cocoa eyes that had taunted Tawny Bishop in the wee hours of the night for the past decade and had finally driven her from Paris to New York City on this cold November night. Memories of her once best friend’s demanding hands running over her heated flesh, enticing her into giving him anything he wanted, brought a rush of adrenaline, and her nerves flamed to life. A cacophony of wind and rain created a dark serenade to her seductive and nerve-racking thoughts as the cab weaved through traffic toward the Ultimate Hotel, where his family was hosting a fundraiser.

Carson Bad.

Even his name sounded stable and strong. She felt a smile tugging at her lips. You were bad, all right. His friendship and his deep, confident voice had once been the salve to all of her worries, righting everything that had felt wrong during her college years. God, she missed him. One sinful Sunday night his voice had done more than soothe. It had slithered beneath her skin, fueling her desires, and he’d introduced her to his darker, sensual side.

4 stars

Carson is the latest installment of Melissa Foster's Bad Boys After Dark series. This enjoyable series keeps getting more enthralling with each release. 

I loved everything about this book and this couple. Carson and Tawny have such a sweet steamy story from their back story of meeting in college to reuniting after several years apart.

Tawny has a decision to make about her future. Is she happy with her life? Does she have any regrets? Feeling incomplete because she ran from the one person that made her happy and alive, she takes the chance to track down Carson. This is a strong woman that is taking a chance of a lifetime. 

Carson was a great male character. The fact that this ladies man was now unsure of a woman and their future made him more likable. He was honest about his feelings of Tawny and wasn't going to let go. He was gentle with her insecurities and communicated to her open and honest was the only way they could put the past behind them.

Not only was this a sweet read it was also very steamy. Tawny had no problem trusting Carson with her desires and she was greatly rewarded for it. The chemistry was so animalistic. I loved it!

It isn't necessarily to read the other books in this series to enjoy Carson but you would be kicking yourself if you didn't.
