The First Night & Hijacked by Sidda Lee Tate - Book Tour, Book Review, Giveaway

 The First Night, Book One

Can the last place she needs to be become the first night of her forever?
She planned to meet her coworkers for drinks and be home in a few hours. Getting drunk and staying out all night was not an option. Not for Kayla Dobbs. Going to a bar was already pushing her limits. Between her full-time job and night classes, there was no time to spare for a social life, and certainly no time for a relationship. But when she meets Gannon, the sexy bartender whose hypnotic eyes seem to follow her every move, she wishes things could be different.

Although Kayla doesn't recognize him, Gannon knows exactly who she is—she was the one girl in high school he'd always wanted but had been afraid to pursue. He's changed a lot since high school though, and maybe now he has a chance at making that dream come true.
As she breaks free from her self-induced lifestyle of studying and work, Kayla realizes that no matter how concrete her life plan is, sometimes it only takes one night, one person, to alter it forever.

Hijacked, Book Two
Will an unexpected encounter leave Sharon's heart hijacked?
When Sharon Blake meets Kyle Phillips her first instinct is to simply seek the pleasure she's certain he can give her. But surprisingly, she feels a strong connection with him, something she's never experienced before, and that conflicts with everything she's always believed—sex is sex and nothing more.

The last woman Kyle trusted with his heart betrayed him, and he has no interest in getting involved with anyone. There's only one problem—now that he's met Sharon, he craves her touch, her laughter, the look in her eyes when he pulls her near.

Kyle and Sharon soon realize that being apart isn't an option. Someone else, though, has different plans for Kyle, and Sharon is left questioning everything he's told her. Kyle tries to explain, to make things right again, but Sharon doesn't know if she can trust him, and her instinct is to walk away now before her heart is bruised even further.

It common for girls to have their insecurities, but it’s really something when guys get insecure. Sometimes it’s cute, most of the time it’s frustrating as hell especially when they think they’re not good enough for you. Meet Gannon – he was a loser during high school, but decided to change his fate when he reached college. Gone was the nerd-acne-filled face, he was now hot, and girls go after him. But he only wanted one girl – someone from high school. Someone who has a kind face, but never really gave him the attention that he wanted.

Kayla’s life revolves in work and study. She had no time for social life, much more a relationship. So going to a bar was a surprise to her friend, much more to herself.  Then she met Gannon, the sexy bartender, who couldn’t get his eyes off her. He looked vaguely familiar but she couldn’t place where she met him. He confused her, though – he was hot, and then cold. He wanted her, then he would shove her away.

Will one night be ever enough for the both of them?

Theirs was a rollercoaster ride fueled by a pent-up longing and intense desire. It might be short, but these two would have you a little bit crazed – wondering if they’ll ever get around and finally admit that they’re perfect for each other. The First Night – it was short, sizzling, sexy and uber-hot.

I wasn’t really fond of Sharon at first – especially when she’s the happy-go-lucky-complete opposite of Kayla. But in Hijacked, we get to know her better, dig deep into her emotions and finally fall in love with this character.

Sharon is the woman who knows what she wants and is not afraid to ask for it. Tough girl, that she is. So when she asked Kyle Phillips to give her pleasure in the stock room, she didn’t expect to feel some connection towards him. Sex, for her, was just something to fulfill her human needs. No emotions, no strings.

Kyle was painfully betrayed by the woman he loved. He didn’t want to get inloved with anyone until Sharon came along. She was like a drug, one try and he was hooked. But his past was not done with him yet, just when everything seems perfect between Sharon and him, his past came and just ruined it all. Now, Sharon ran away from him, didn’t trust him and wouldn’t listen to his explanation.

How can something so perfect turn out to be a ruse? Sharon doesn’t know if she can completely trust him – but she’s sure about one thing, she has to get out of it fast before she starts falling.

Just like the first book – this was oozing with sexiness, heat and a lot of heart. I love that this was a short read, and you can just finished this in one sitting. You will squirm, blush and feel the heat with every page.
