Reviewed By: Kim

Blurb: Starting over sucks. At forty, Miles Koprowski thought he had life all figured out. He had a nice car, a hot young lover, and a cushy job… and then he didn’t. Call it fate, or karma, or a downturn in the market, but this opinionated cynic is now forced to play rent-a-cop in a dying office building in the burbs just to make ends meet. Throw in an unhinged ex, a coworker who hates him, and a hot new boss, and suddenly everything is uncertain.

Miles doesn’t plan on liking the night shift or becoming embroiled in a mystery that reawakens old passions and puts him in danger. And he certainly doesn’t plan on falling for the overbearing head of security, Colton Decker, former soldier and doting dad. But nights like these can change a man, make him start to believe there’s more to life than a high-paying job and a warm body in his bed. With a thief on the loose and his new job in jeopardy, Miles will have to decide what’s truly important. He might discover things he never knew he wanted… as long as he makes it through the night.

Dividers

Review: Oh, how the mighty have fallen… Miles Koprowski thought he had it all. Until the layoffs. With the lack of job prospects and almost out of his savings, Miles is forced to take a low paying job as a security guard just to keep a roof over his head. Ah, poor Miles is at the lowest point of his life.

But then, Miles meets “Mr. Perfect”

Colton becomes a bright spot in Miles’ life, even though he’s kind of off limits, in more ways than one, starting with the wedding ring on his finger. Then there’s the picture of his daughter on his wall. Not to mention the rule, no fraternizing with other employees. This rule doesn’t seem to apply for Colton, though, or stop him from wooing Miles out of his comfort zone. It also doesn’t help that Miles’ ex is stalking him.

There’s a mystery happening in the building where Miles works, and it’s already claimed the life of his predecessor, so Miles decides to work with Colton to figure out who’s stealing valuable art work from the company. From the start of Nights Like These I was hooked, and I really enjoyed getting to know Miles, as well as loving his brand of snarky humor. It was sad at times, though, when he directed that humor towards himself. There’s nothing quite like beating yourself up for things that are out of your control.

I love Chris Skully’s characters and am looking forward to listening to Nights Like These on audio. Yes, it’s a good thing when I want it to listen to a book after I’ve already read it, and I gladly recommend this book to those who love mysteries and romance with a touch of humor.

Chris Scully Spends This Christmas On The “Rebound”



“He hadn’t stopped Christmas from coming, it came! Somehow or other… it came just the same.” – The Grinch Who Stole Christmas


If you read the blurb for Rebound you’ll pretty much know what the story is all about:

Christmas is a time for peace, love, and goodwill toward mankind. Not! More like cheating exes and absentee friends. For Emmett Byrd, spending the holiday season with his old college friend Terry in San Diego is supposed to be about mending his broken heart. But when Terry deserts him at the last minute, leaving Emmett alone in his condo for Christmas, it’s just the icing on the cake of a crappy year full of betrayal and lost love. The only Christmas spirit this Scrooge is feeling is the alcoholic kind. Then a slightly kooky, unsophisticated farm boy named Sky knocks on the door looking for Terry, and a case of mistaken identity reawakens Emmett’s hope in happily ever after.
