PJV Quickie: If you want to read a book that will leave you, questioning everything you just read and wanting desperately to discuss it with someone that has also read it…this is the book for you. About halfway through this book, I stopped and asked myself “What the –insert expletive of your choice — am I reading?” I expected one thing, I got something TOTALLY different. And it was sooo good.
I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Review: I could base a discussion post on this book and I probably will in the future, maybe after I’ve read the second book, but for right now let’s keep this quick and dirty. If you are looking for a straight-up, sexy erotica – this book isn’t for you. NIGHT OWL is a psychological miasma of twists, turns, obsessions, raunchy sex, co-dependency, drugs, alcoholism, loss… (have I scared you off yet?) and how two people deal with all of the above. The female heroine, Hannah is first portrayed as a wishy-washy niave, down-on-her-luck character – that you expect to fall in-love with the rich, sexy, author, Matt Sky. He fixes her life – etc. etc. Nope. I told you about expectations right? M. Pierce throws this all out the window. She/He (whoever this author is) takes all you preconceived notions about romance novels, shakes them up and then turns them around. As a reader, I was left with question after question, surprised at every turn. I FREAKIN’ LOVED IT. I hope this book sells millions! This needs to be the next trendy read. The writing is smart, the characters are MONSTROUSLY in your face. The plot is topsy-turvy and the romance is HOT. What more can a reader ask for???
And just when you get to the end. Just when you are like “oh it’s over. I can breath. I can recuperate….” the epilogue slaps you in the FACE. Yep. It was a hard slap. I had a black-eye for a week.
Read this Book! Read it right now. It releases tomorrow. You have no excuses.
Recommendations: Adult reading, very explicit sex. This is a very daring romance novel, not recommended for readers that like to stay in their little romance boxes. I can’t even compare it to another writer. If you want to read about raunchy sex, with disturbed characters, written in an exceptional style…this is the book for you.
