Product Description

Sometimes dream crushes do come true.

Vegas Nights, Book 1

Reagan can’t believe her luck—and not in a good way. One minute she’s hanging out with her friends at an exclusive party in Las Vegas. The next, she’s attracted the attention of a famous actor. Not just any actor. Declan Carter, the man on whom she used to—okay, might still—have a fangirl crush. Whose blue eyes leave her embarrassingly tongue tied.

All Declan wants is to meet a nice, normal woman who won’t use him as a stepping stone to fame. Something about Reagan tells him she could be that rare woman, and he follows his instinct to invite her back to his suite—where they proceed to have wild monkey sex. All. Night. Long.

What was supposed to be one night of no-regrets sex stretches out into a blissful weekend of two people who can’t get enough of each other. But when the glamour of Sin City wears off, they’re standing on the edge of a once-in-a-lifetime chance to turn a weekend fling into something lasting. Will they take the jump?

Warning: Smokin’ hot sexy weekend with a gorgeous actor? There shouldn’t be a warning—more like encouragement to indulge your fantasies!

Very good book, loved it. The relationship between Reagan & Declan starts out hot & keeps going. Declan is an actor looking to restart his career after bottoming out a few yrs ago due to drugs, alcohol & women. Reagan is an ER nurse looking for a fun weekend with her girlfriends. They meet when the girls are brought to a party that Declan's friends have put on before he starts filming a new comeback movie. The minute Declan meets Reagan he's hooked & Reagan can't believe that she's talking to her movie crush. What was supposed to be just one night ends up being a weekend with promises to continue when Declan is done his film. After not hearing from him for 5 wks Reagan has given up on them meeting again & is exhausted from working herself to the bone to forget him. At the end of an unusually long overtime shift Reagan is told she has one more patient that will only see her, walking into the exam area she meets Declan waiting for her. Can't go any further without giving away the ending. Can it be true is he really there? Is he back to pick up where they left off? Can he really be interested in Reagan? Definite recommend to read. Looking forward to the next 2 books.

RECKLESS NIGHTS is the second novella in Karen Erickson’s adult, contemporary, erotic romance Vegas Nights series. This is actor Declan Carter and E.R. nurse Reagan’s storyline.

The focus follows a one night stand between Declan and Reagan. Declan’s star has fizzled. His previous drug and alcohol use has left him a has-been with the Hollywood crowd. But a clean start is on the horizon for Declan-a new movie that will hopefully show the world he is a better man. Enter Reagan-an E.R. nurse he meets in Vegas and a woman with whom Declan will see the promise of the future. The love scenes are erotic and hot.

RECKLESS NIGHTS is a story of insta-lust/love. Introduced at a private party by the mysterious James, Declan and Reagan are immediately attracted to one another but both are a little hesitant for a one night stand. Declan needs to keeps his new image clean and Reagan does not need to have her heart broken by her Hollywood crush. A night of passion and sex finds our couple committing to an ongoing relationship once Declan finishes the next six weeks of filming. When Reagan does not hear from the man of her dreams, her heart may be broken but the adage-what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas-is her new motto and friend.

The secondary and supporting characters include Declan and Reagan’s best friends who have hooked up together as well: Noah and Natalie, Andrea and Luke, Reagan and Declan. Three couples all introduced by their flamboyant friend and fairy godfather James resulting in three stories about love and a happily ever after. There is a prequel novella WICKED WEEKEND that introduces the characters and James’s role in getting our couples together.

RECKLESS NIGHTS is a fast paced, predictable and erotic storyline. Nothing is off limits between Declan and Reagan-the first steps toward the future are paved with a one night stand and passionate sex.

HASH(0xa1a8d5f4) out of 5 stars Hot Vegas Fun! (B+ Grade) Feb. 12 2015
By Katie Babs - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Karen Erickson is so good at writing novellas. Reckless Nights is one sexy romance about a one night stand in Las Vegas that becomes much more between an an average type of woman (Or so Reagan, the heroine believes herself to be) and a too good to be true prince charming type actor who connect on a deeper level within minutes of meeting at a ritzy party.

Reagan is a nurse who works long hours. She goes to Las Vegas with her two best gal pals for some R&R. They end up at a celebrity party, and that’s where Reagan catches the eye of Declan, an actor who Reagan used to have a big crush on. Declan was once the biggest stars in Hollywood but his partying and drinking got out of control. He went to rehab and is now on the straight and narrow, ready to get back into the spotlight with a new role that could make his career all over again. When he meets Reagan, the sparks fly between them, and then some. Within a few hours these are on their way to falling love, which means insta-love. It seems cliche, but the way Karen writes it, she really makes it believable. Declan is willing to make Reagan’s sexual fantasy a reality, and she goes up to his hotel suite where they have some naked fun together.

The sex scenes simmer and smolder with great sensuality. Karen is a master at writing great love scenes. The one night stand turns into something much more between Reagan and Declan. I wanted Reckless Night to be longer. The conflict here is very minimal other than the issue with Declan’s celebrity status and if Reagan is good enough to be with him because she feels she’s not “Hollywood” in any shape or form.

Reckless Nights was a quick fun time read set in one of my favorite US cities.

Declan Carter, famous actor, was the man of Regan’s dreams. She might be on a flighty holiday weekend in Vegas, but Regan knows the smoldering attraction between herself and Declan can only be a passing fancy. Her real life is the graveyard shift as a nurse and sleeping through the day when everyone else got to live their life. But with a sexy cocktail dress and with some friends at a fancy party, Regan stumbles into Declan and suddenly her Vegas trip is looking far better than she’d believed possible.

This is a fun and steamy story. While the whole “girls weekend at Vegas” and “normal girl meets hot famous guy” angles aren’t exactly new, I still found myself interested – both by Regan’s character and Declan’s lack of arrogance. Declan might be a famous actor, but he’s been through a rough patch and so lacks a lot of the arrogant and cocky characteristics similar heroes can be flawed by.

The sex is steamy and I found it really well written. Not flouncy or flowery – but hot and sexy. This definitely isn’t a story I’d lend to my mother! For all that though, I didn’t find it pushed the envelope, straddling that thin line between erotic and very sensual – and for me personally, it stayed on the line of sensual. The sex is graphic though, and for more pure romance readers it might be a bit too hot.

There’s some clear hint-dropping about Regan’s two girlfriends. Although the three women came to Vegas together for a girls-weekend all three of them hook up the first evening so there’s two other stories loosely linked with this one, but this is easily read as a stand alone novel. My only real complaint was how the plot seemed fairly standard. While I found myself interested in the story itself, it was nothing fresh, new or different. Also, I found myself a little miffed at Regan’s reaction to her return to reality. When Regan and Declan parted, Declan had explained he needed a certain amount of time to settle into his new movie role. Before that agreed upon time had passed she was already bitter and writing him off. It soured a lot of my view on her character. Not just because she couldn’t be patient, but that he’d been honest and up-front about needing some time, and before those weeks had passed she was impatient and doubting him. It felt a little too much like a forced-upon conflict point (and an unfair one of Regan to make), rather than a natural by-product of a new relationship experiencing issues/strain.

Having said that, I really did find this for the most part as a fun, lighthearted, sexy story well worth my time to read. I enjoyed the author’s voice and style, the plot moved along at a decent pace, and you can never really go wrong with a story set in Vegas. Outside of a few issues, I found this to be a great story and a good, solid read.

By Crystal's Many Reviewers - Published on

When a book promises a night of wild monkey sex, it of course becomes a must read for me. Reckless Nights promised that, and I’m happy to say it delivered.

Declan is famous, and because of that he is constantly getting attention of people – and women—who have nefarious purposes. He just wants to meet a nice, normal girl who wants him for him, not for what he can give her with his fame. When he sees Reagan at a club in Vegas, he instinctually feels that she could give him what he wants and he sets about getting it. Reagan knows who Declan is, and of course she’s star struck at meeting him. But they also discover over the course of a weekend that they might be able to give each other more than just a fling and turn what they have into something real. Will they go for it?

This is the kind of book that you set down and read in an afternoon. It’s fun and completely fantastical. I mean, what woman would not want to be romanced and monkey-sexed by a hot celebrity (Chris Helmworth…call me)? I found that even thought this is a short story that the characters were well fleshed out. Declan, especially, seemed like a very realistic character to me and I fell for him a bit too. I liked him and Reagan together. The only down side to short stories like this is that it’s an insta-love kind of connection that goes at warp speed until the book is over. That can be unrealistic, but I find that if I just ignore the part of my brain that craves reality and just get lost in the fantasy, it can work for me.

Overall, this story was told well and piqued my interest. I look forward to reading more in this series. And yay for hot monkey sex! 4 stars.

This three part serial was set up in Wicked Weekend, the short novella that introduces us to the three ladies and sets the stage for each of their lust filled Vegas weekends. Up first is Reagan who is star struck when she meets Declan, the once teen heartthrob turned washed out rehab actor, who is slowly trying to rebuild his career and image.

Once Declan sweeps her off her feet and up to his penthouse suite, these two get lost in between the sheets as the weekend passes them by in a blur. But when it’s time for Reagan to head home and Declan to begin filming again, promises made in the midst of passion might not be kept.

I honestly picked up this series originally after reading that Karen Erickson was a pen name for an author who I adore. So I figured I’d easily enjoy this series and her other works just as much. I was interested in seeing what the difference in styles would be; would one be sexier than the other? Maybe a bit more wild? What I did realize is that although there were some subtle changes, the writing was still very well done.

I loved the concept of this series. A girls weekend away, a once in a life time chance to live the fantasy of meeting a star and not only falling into a lust fueled haze, but finding something so much more in the end.

I did enjoy this quick read and was excited to start the second in the series shortly afterwards. However because it is a short read, there is an instant-love set up and rush to the finish line ending. Although the author took their time where it counted. I loved the moments where it was just the two of them lost in one another and the focus staying right where it needed to be. These moments allowed their connection to be seen and although I didn’t have nearly enough time to fall in love with these characters, I still was thoroughly entertained by the story.

When Reagan gets the first touch from her Hollywood crush from long ago she was surprised by his reaction. He was either speechless, awkward or both. She has heard stories from his past all over the tabloids but she didn't believe that was the man he was today. He was changed. He wanted normal and he could tell Reagan was just that.

Once they started talking she was nervous how the night was going but also very excited. She wanted him and once she knew he wanted her, she knew it would be a wild night. She hoped it would be. It would only be a one-night stand but she was okay with that at the moment.

Declan and Reagan did have their one hot and wild night. It was so sexy and not like anything either of them have ever experienced. What turns into a weekend of endless orgasms has to come to an end. Declan has to go on set and Reagan has to go back to long hours as an ER nurse. Will this be one weekend of sinful sex between two people that just met or will they see each other again?

I loved this story! It was short, sexy and swoon-worthy. Declan is trying to have a normal life, one that he has never had before. And Reagan is trying to have some fun away from her work and putting them together was perfect. Can't wait to see what happens next.


"I'm not looking for anything," she admitted softly, the smile she'd been holding back shining through, blinding him.

A one-night stand. A little fun on a Friday night. "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" and all that nonsense.

She was like a treasure he just found and was dying to explore further.
