Payton Summer doesn’t have time for love. Between running her own business in her hometown of Jupiter Bay and her monthly night out with her sisters, Payton has no room for men, dating, or the drama that it entails. Her life is fine just the way it is. Yet, her attraction to the one man she shouldn’t want can’t be ignored.

Dean McIntire has one rule: don’t date clients. It’s a lesson he learned the hard way, and sees the consequence every day when he looks at his five-year-old daughter. It’s not a rule he’d break again. Until he meets the gorgeous Payton Summer, and suddenly, Dean finds himself ready to throw the rule book right out the window.

What happens when the sparks of lust can’t be denied? One night turns in to two, and two turns in to more. Payton and Dean find themselves unable to stay away, but can they survive when their secrets are exposed?

Note: Though part of a series, this book can be read as a standalone. It is intended for those 18 and over due to graphic language, descriptive sex, and the world’s most inappropriate grandparents.


I’ve been a fan of Lacey Black’s since she released her first book, Trust Me. I was immediately smitten with her writing style, and the way she vividly captures life and love in a small town. I absolutely love small town romances, especially when big families are involved, and when I find myself wanting to reach for one, it is Lacey Black who always comes to my mind first.

My Kinda Night is the second book in her Summer Sisters series. Set in the beach town of Jupiter Bay, the series is based on the six Summer sisters as they find love in their quaint town. This is Payton, the oldest of the Summer sisters, and Dean’s story. This couple both had some obstacles to overcome before they were willing to open their hearts to more. But the chemistry between them was so palpable, so encompassing, so undeniable that there was no choice but for them to find a way. Add in a healthy dose of Payton’s big, boisterous but loving family, the antics of their hilariously inappropriate grandparents, a show-stealing five-year-old little girl, and an emotional shock that rocked this family to its core, and Black has penned another winner with this fantastic story.

Lacey Black tackled a difficult topic in My Kinda Night, and while I was wrecked by the genuine emotion she delivered here, it was gorgeous love story between Payton and Dean that took center stage here. Their happily ever after kept me riveted in place – heart racing, cheeks burning and laughing out loud – as I devoured on this beautiful and romantic story. Lacey Black’s My Kinda Night gets five smooches from me!
