Description from Goodreads:
She wants one night. He wants her forever.

Hayden Summers just landed the job of a lifetime taking pictures for Time magazine, but she’s determined to leave with no regrets. The first thing on her list? Erase the memory of her cheating ex with a wild night of anonymous sex. The second? Figure out why her best friend, sexy bar owner Jace Jennings, stopped speaking to her the night she told him about the job.

Jace has a problem. Hayden isn’t just leaving the country, she’s risking her life—just when he’s realized he’s in love with her. When fate traps them in the storage room of his bar together, barely contained desire simmers to surface. In one last attempt to keep her, Jace offers Hayden the one thing she wants: a night of hot sex, no strings attached. But when the night is over, will Jace be able to let her go? And will Hayden leave with her heart intact?

My Review:
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
No Strings Attached is a novelette, not a full length novel, so it's definitely a quick read. My only problem with it? I wanted more when I was done with it!

There are a lot of stories about best friends falling in love, but Nicolette manages to make this stand out.

I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what Nicolette does with this series. (More Jace, please!)

Description from Goodreads:
When Eden Carver, Iowa farm girl turned NY actress, decides to seduce the sexy cop next door, she begins to wonder if she’s bitten off more than she can chew.

The last thing Officer Jay Bennett wants is to cross a line with the sweet and innocent country girl—no matter how much he’d like to help himself to a nibble. Not only are they in the friendship zone, a naïve girl like Eden doesn’t belong in his dangerous world.

But when she asks him to help her rehearse lines, and things go from simmer to boil, he finds himself doing the one thing he swore he’d never do. He knows he needs to walk away from temptation, but when sweet little Eden bites back, it tilts his world on its axis. Because biting back changes everything.
My Review:
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Hold Me Down Hard was a nice read, but it felt more like a preview than a complete novel.

The one thing that I loved about Hold Me Down Hard was that the plot was unique. Eden is an actress and she has it bad for her neighbor/best friend, Jay. When she has a new part she's preparing for, he usually runs her lines with her. After some encouragement from her friends, she decides to write her own script to try and seduce Jay.

Like I said, it is definitely a unique plot, but I was left wanting more. I'd love to see this story told in novel length. It just felt too rushed in this form.
