Publisher's Summary

Everything's naughtier after dark...?

Receiving a marriage proposal is supposed to make a women happy, but when Erica "Laney" Lane receives a beautiful marriage proposal from her perfect boyfriend on the eve of her annual camping trip with her best friend, Jackson Wild, the first thing she does is jump into bed with Jackson.

Jackson's all too happy to screw the annoyance out of Laney. After all, they've always screwed the hell out of each other when they were bored or angry, lonely, or too damn drunk to see straight.

But the marriage proposal changes everything, and their annual camping trip takes unexpected turns. Will a few nights in the wilderness set these friends with benefits free, or lead them on a path of destruction?

Wild For Sure!!

Jackson and his brother Cooper owed a photographer Studio in NYC. They came in contact everyday with beautiful women everyday and they took advantage of it sexually. Jackson and his best friend Erica, called Laney, had been having sex since high school. She always ran to Jackson when she had troubles. Her current boyfriend had asked her to marry him and he knew about Jackson. Jackson and Laney went on a camping trip for her birthday together. The heat between them was electric! The hottest I have ever encountered. The narrator was over the top hot! Great job Melissa and Paul!

Holy Hotness!

I've read Jackson previously and loved him so much I decided to get the audio version as well. No regrets whatsoever. Paul Woodson does an amazing job at bringing these characters and their super sexy scenes to life! I'm so impressed with his ability to relay the character's emotions so clearly.

Oh, and chapter 5...whoa! Totally my favorite scene!

Not really my cup of tea.

What’s it About? Longtime friends Jackson Wild and Erica “Laney” Lane have had a friends with benefits relationship for years and it’s worked for them so far. Then Laney gets a marriage proposal from her boyfriend right before she leaves on her annual camping trip with Jackson but instead of jumping for joy, she jumps right into Jackson’s bed. The camping trip takes a different turn as Jackson and Laney start to realize that their friends with benefits relationship can’t continue indefinitely.



I hate to do this because I usually love Foster’s work but I had to slam the brakes on this one. I get the edgier and sexier vibe that the author was going for with this series but I just couldn’t figure this one out.

I thought they both came across as selfish and a little cold and when it came to Jackson, Laney was a pushover and let him get away with too much.


Here’s the thing, Jackson and Laney definitely loved each other, they knew it, they owned it, but they don’t realize that they’re in love with each other in the “I’m all in and it’s going to be you for me and me for you for the rest of time” sense. I think that’s what this short story is about, their journey from just sex buddies and friendship to something more meaningful and permanent.


The plot was a little unbelievable to me and I know that this is fiction but I do need to believe in the characters and the story being told and that didn’t happen here. I just couldn’t get past the way Jackson and Laney disregarded other people’s feelings because of their friends with benefits bit going on.


This is the first time I’ve heard Paul Woodson and while I may not have enjoyed the story I did enjoy the way he narrated the book. His voice is easy on the ears yet still has a way of getting a person’s attention with minimal effort.


Click It or Skip It? I’m going to be honest, I didn’t care for Jackson very much but it’s one of those stories that really depends on the reader’s preference. I’m going to Skip It but if you’re okay with open relationships then buy all means Click It and have fun.

Steamy Jackson

Audiobook Review..If you have not listened to Paul Woodson as a narrator you are missing out. Give Paul the amazing words of Melissa Foster and you have a story that you will not be able to turn off. The character of Jackson is all Alpha Male. Paul is able to use his voice to not only show how alpha he is but also how loving, sweet, and caring he is. I cannot imagine it is easy to read a book with so much emotion, with male and female characters, and with so much heat. But this narrator is absolutely amazing. If you love audiobooks or if this is your first audiobook I recommend jumping in and listening immediately. eBook Review…When your best friend is of the opposite sex things can get messy. Jackson and Erica are all friends with benefits and are all good with that until that is put on the line. When Erica gets engaged it would mean that their arrangement would end. They could stay friends but no more benefits. This throws Jackson off. He believes that he is not marriage material. He doesn’t want to commit to anyone, but he isn’t wanting Erica to commit either. I found it interesting that feelings can come to the surface when push comes to shove. I believe these two would have continued as they were if Erica did not unintentionally give Jackson a push. It was tough to watch him struggle and see their friendship struggle and almost fall apart. I was praying for a happy ending for these two. If you are familiar with Melissa Foster you have an idea what to expect. Beware that this series is a little hotter and a little sexier. Things are more graphic and the men steamier. I have said that I am in lust with the men in this series.

Wild Brother 3 is pushed to admit his love for BF

Again not much plot. Some sexy scenes and a very abrupt ending. Mostly Jackson confronting his feelings about long time friend and frequent lover when she gets a marriage proposal. Not worth a credit but maybe they will all be bundled.

When do you stop fighting friendship-love?

Jackson had a problem. Laney was his best friend. Laney was his occasional booty-call. Laney was his camping partner. Laney was about to be married. Or is she? I enjoyed the story for the quick read that it was but wanted more of the story. Jackson was a male with male tendencies. He was also lying to himself. Laney was a woman that knew what she wanted but was willing to settle for something that would just be getting by. To be the best of friends they missed the mark on communication. Of all the Wild Boys in this first part of the series, Jackson's story was a let down. It was sexy and a bit hot, but for me I did not feel connected to Jackson or Laney. They were just a stop-gap filler. Paul Woodson was on performance. He brought to life the story that was short and for me simple. He gave the story the extra.

Somewhat Light in the Story Area

I listened to this book. The narration was good. I was surprised at the length of the audiobook. It seemed to be over fairly quickly. It was an OK read. I did like the premise. I liked both Jackson and Laney. I did think Laney was a little intense, but that seemed to be right up Jackson's alley. They were a true match. I did like the way they seemed to know each other so well, and we're so comfortable together. This book felt like a rush through their relationship. I'm glad that there was not a ton of angst, and they moved through the difficult parts pretty quickly. I do wish that Laney's conversation with Brandon had been written in to the book. I would have loved to be a fly on the wall for that one. I also wish there had been more written about Brandon and Laney's aging interaction. You only got to have a vague idea about Brandon from Laney's perspective, not any actual engagement of them as a couple It was an OK listen. A little over 3 hours. The first two books seemed to be longer with more detail.

Friends with Benefits

Boys after Dark: Jackson This is the 3rd audiobook in the Wild Boys after Dark series. They can all be stand alone. Very hot and steamy series. Jackson Wild and Erica Lane aka Laney have been friends since high school. They have had a friends with benefits relationship. That has worked perfectly until Laney gets proposed to. This book is a perfect example of you dont know what you got til its gone!! Great job Melissa Foster on another great book. Paul Woodson did a great job with narration.

Jackson

I enjoyed this one and had it playing while driving which let me set the cruise and handle the traffic...Jackson and Laney have had a friends with benefits relationship for years and they rely on each other to be there for their special needs that only each other provide but when Laney receives a marriage proposal from her current boyfriend all bets are off. Will this be the catalyst to wake them up to what they really have? This was a good one!

the girl next door.

What made the experience of listening to Wild Boys After Dark: Jackson the most enjoyable?

it was brilliant I had a more visual journey and it was nice to have a different narrator the experience was different has the relationship with Jackson and laney was hot. he struggles with his feeling for and believes he is not good enough for her.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wild Boys After Dark: Jackson?

when they go camping you can see both battling heart ache and they don't know how to over come it they are putting everything in and trying to cover the heart break.

What does Paul Woodson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

its more exciting and he performs this book like theatre. But also his voice was smooth and charisma and each scene brought more meaning to the book . you had more of a visual journey with laney and Jackson.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Cold Shower required ;)

Where does Wild Boys After Dark: Jackson rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

My favourite. Jackson is the ultimate male who defines sex on legs.

What did you like best about this story?

The friends to lovers storyline, I love those stories.

Which character – as performed by Paul Woodson – was your favourite?

Jackson definitely.

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

I needed a cold shower afterwards, does that count? ;)

Any additional comments?

WOW!!! I loved this story and the words being read out.... phew!!!!

I love friends to lovers stories and this one was no exception.

Jackson and Lanie continuously fight their feelings but an event makes them look at these in bigger detail.

They are best friends who care deeply for one another and they tell each other everything but the most important, they love each other.

I highly recommend this audio book.

Another fab story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this along with all of the Wild Boys books to a friend. They are pure escapism, beautifully written and spoken.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the road Jackson and Laney find themselves on as they begin their journey towards their happy ever after.

Any additional comments?

It is great to be able to read a story about two long time friends who slowly begin to realise that they are so much more. Jacksons side is written very well, Melissa has got inside his head well to get across his emotions and thoughts. Laney is strong and scared about giving in to herself to allow herself to be happy with Jackson. It is brilliantly written, and I could not stop listening to it :)
