Publisher's Summary

Some marriages last a week, a month, or a year. Others last a lifetime. Mine ends on my wedding night, 10 hours after the exchange of rings.

Our marriage vows shatter when Dustin Cardwell, the man I saved myself for, looks me in the eye and tells me I failed between the sheets.

Our marriage ends before the ink dries, before the scent of my bouquet fades, before the candles in our honeymoon suite burn out.

Three months later, I'm divorced and working as a massage therapist on the LaClaire Cruise Ship, headed for the Caribbean. I'm desperate to get away, to lick my wounds in private. I'm not looking to be another man's disappointment.

Until Bryant LaClaire invades my space and makes my panties melt. The moment our eyes meet, he makes it clear I'm his girl of the moment.

Drawing me in with his charm and good looks, he promises to repair my sexual self-esteem while satisfying his own needs. A few LaClaire nights is all he can give. Nothing more, nothing less. It's an offer my body can't resist.

But when my heart lures me into the heart and world of a man who carries a devastating secret, I know I'm in danger of returning home with more pain than I'd left with.

LaClaire Nights is a steamy full-length, standalone novel with a happy ending.

Warning: Due to sexual situations and adult content, this audiobook is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

    Story
    "Romance at Sea"

    What starts as an awful wedding night celebration leading to a divorce for Grace, turns into a gentle, lengthy foreplay with Bryant LaClaire, her boss and a consummate player with full heartbreak potential. Grace, suffering from a lack of confidence and the inability to see herself clearly, doesn't stand an chance against her attraction to Bryant, except he doesn't stand a chance either. Sex is only the beginning. Both have issues that they need to work through before they can give each other a chance.

    To be honest, there isn't anything really unique about this billionaire romance. It is pure escapism and it meets the readers expectations for this genre. It has its two protagonists who the reader cannot help but like, a steady build-up, a lot of problems and challenges, and then the HEA. Overall, it is satisfactory.

    This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

    "Sparks fly on the LeClaire"

    Enjoyable, predictable read following Grace, who after marrying her friend discovers that it takes more than friendship to make sparks fly in the bedroom. After her first sexual encounter leaves her letdown, embarrassed and divorce she decides a change of scenery is in order and takes a 6 week job on a cruise ship as a masseuse. Here she learns that she is not quite the failure in bed that she was led to believe, sparks fly when she meets the ships owner Bryant LeClaire. Neither Grace nor Bryant are looking for more than a hook up, but as we know, things never seem to go as planned. Both Bryant and Grace are dealing with demons from their past, Grace especially deals well with an overbearing mother and a complete loser of an ex husband. As usual Tracy Marks does an admiral job of narrating both male and female points of view. I received an audio copy of this book via Audiobook Boom in exchange for an honest review.

    "Review "

    Nice romance about a girl trying to get over her failed short lived marriage by taking a job on a cruise ship for a few weeks. This is chic lit at its best with all the anxiety that comes with loving a new man and not knowing where the relationship is going. It is a good story, gentle and light. The presenter reads well and does the story justice.

    "Hot romance "
    What made the experience of listening to LaClaire Nights the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed the characters and storyline.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    When I first started listening, the speed of the narration felt a little slow and drawn out. I always start my audiobooks at a speed of 1.0, I attempted to speed up the narration to 1.25, but that way too fast, so I moved it back down to 1.25. I think if my app had a 1.15 speed it would have been perfect. Besides that issue, the narration was great and fit the story well.

    "It was ok"

    I would have like the story better if the same lines weren't repeated so often in different pov. I found the lead female character to be whiny but that's just my opinion. The overall story wasn't to bad. Good for a listen when on sale. The narration was good.

    "LaClaire Nights"
    Where does LaClaire Nights rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    pretty close to the top


    What was one of the most memorable moments of LaClaire Nights?

    when Bryant & Lance have it out


    What does Tracy Marks bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Although Tracy was good I think reading it would've let my mind wander a little more & given him a different type of voice


    Any additional comments?

    “I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

    I read the book while listening to it & although Tracy did a great job...a male's voice is always better done by a man or in your imagination.

    "Well Done!"

    Dori Lavelle is a new author to me, while I have listened to many performances of Tracy Marks. I love how Ms. Marks can change her voice so people can hear the various characters. This book had some very special moments showing great chemistry and goodness. There was also karma to Dustin. Some of the characters I really liked and others were in a class of their own. This book is a standalone listen and has a happy ending. The story was written in a way that the brothers could receive their own books as standalone as well. I will definitely look for more books by the author and narrator in the future. Sorry my review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it and it does not contain spoilers. I was provided with this review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily written this review.

    Story
    "🛳 Run From Hometown Rumors To an Adventure! 🛳"



    LaClaire nights begins with Grace, a twenty-something virgin, preparing for her wedding night. The continual references to her virginity and how it was taken were a bit repetitious/not necessary to move the forward. Grace's fiancé/husband was a Class-A jerk. This established in the 1st chapter (several times.)

    To escape hometown humiliation, Grace signs up as a massage therapist for a cruise line. This gives her a chance to see some of the world as well as taking her far from the gossip at home.

    Here are things that maybe wonder if the author, Dori Lavelle, has been anywhere near the employees quarters on a cruise ship. 1. The description of Grace's quarters. I can guarantee that none of the rooms for crew have a porthole much less the balcony. 2. The employees food-service is not served in a manner/location comparable to anything more than a break room, if that. 3.,The crew on almost any cruise line MAY get to disembark only occasionally, when their one day off coordinates with the scheduled port of call. It is more likely that the crew takes the occasion to get caught up on much-needed sleep and or menial chores like laundry. HOWEVER, perhaps all of this is moot when you are holding the interest of the captain/owner of said cruise line.

    Though it grated on me, I decided to overlook all that (previous paragraph)– truly just details and not important to the story line – and focus on the story (inaccuracies aside) which was a different/unique twist on the contemporary theme of billionaire regular girl. I enjoyed it quite a bit and I am glad that *I was given the opportunity to listen to this book in exchange for my unbiased review.*I choose to give the story 4 stars.

    Tracy Marks is the talented voice performer of LaClaire Nights. Marks is a rare voice actor, in that she can effortlessly perform characters of the same sex AND able to perform characters of the opposite sex in a believable and non distracting way. 4 solid stars

    Overall, this is a really good book. 4 stars

    "romance on the sea"

    I wasn't sure about the story because of how it started. My heart broke for Grace and what she had to go thru with Dustin, what a jerk! He got what he deserved in the end and good riddance. Her Mom was so annoying with her blind belief, I wanted to smack her, but then she finally came around at the end.

    A feel-good HEA romance with the pieces falling into place as they should, even though their pasts were not the easiest ones. So happy she found Bryant who healed her as much as she healed him, their chemistry is palpable. Great supporting characters, Grace's new friends and Bryant brothers. I am looking forward to hearing their stories too, especially Lance's.

    I selected this story because of Ms. Marks talented voice, so far I have not listened to any that I didn't enjoy and is true for this story too. The voices she gives the various characters are well chosen and their emotions are clearly felt, not just heard.

    "The Perfect Mix"

    This book was the perfect length. The story was good, held my attention and kept moving along. There was just the right amount of drama, romance and issues between Bryant and Grace. In my past experience sometimes books like this can drag on in the middle with not much at all happening as the story kind of stalls for a while. Not in this book. The story was interesting, there wasn’t an over exaggerated amount of drama between the main characters and the story was believable and relatable. I really liked the chemistry between Bryant and Grace, it seemed genuine and both characters seemed mostly normal and down to earth. This book is worth listening to. I finished it in a day and a half and didn’t switch between books like I often do when stories drag on. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a story that has just the right mix of everything; romance, some drama, hot sex and a story of a budding new relationship.

    I was given this audiobook free at my request for my honest and unbiased review.

    "The Love Boat"

    Most certainly wasn`t a stellar start to a story (horrible ex-husband) but it did get much better. Bryant may not have been the ideal rebound man (at least he was honest) it’s amazing how people acted during times of struggle in their life's. We become people even we don`t recognise at times, thankfully Bryant is one of the good guys.
    Enjoyable narrative by Tracy Marks, looking forward to see if the rest of the brothers have in store. Derrick I believe is next in the series.

    Story
    "LaClaire Nights, hot on the high seas"
    What did you love best about LaClaire Nights?

    The progression of Grace and Bryant's relationship. They were both vulnerable and had their reasons not to get involved too deeply.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of LaClaire Nights?

    Grace and Bryant's first meeting in the gym. Their thoughts on each other and about themselves evolve from that day and progress into something neither of them expect.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Bryant at the flower shop. Watching Grace from across the street.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The Masseuse gets a Happy Ending!


    Any additional comments?

    It took some time to get used to the narration, but towards the middle she gets better. She does well with accents and differentiating between characters, however, she sometimes reads fast and clipped.
