If you are looking for a quick, funny, easy read….1980: YOU SHOOK ME ALL NIGHT LONG is exactly what you are looking for. It is the first of ten contemporary romance books set in the 1980’s written by award winning and bestselling authors. The novellas will be released one each month from January – October, 2016.

I have to admit that from the title of the book I really didn’t know what to expect. I quickly was drawn in and read it without a break. Casey effortlessly takes you on a journey back to the 80’s in Los Angeles, California. Polyester leisure suits, fishnet stockings, big hair, teased bangs, tons of hair spray, valley girls, cassette players, and AC/DC! You will feel like you are there walking down the streets watching the Firebirds, Mustangs and other muscle cars cruise by!

Tina Bartram is from Portland, Oregon and embarking on her freshman year at USC. She is a sweet girl that has lived a fairly sheltered life and was focused on her education and future. Her new roommate, Georgia, on the other hand, was not. She was attending college solely for the social aspect. The two roommates could not be more different.

Georgia scored some tickets for a concert on campus, set Tina up on a secret blind date, and “BANG” the trouble begins. Tina was very uncomfortable with the makeover Georgia insisted on giving her for the concert. She felt self-conscious and looked like a hooker. She was not prepared for what this night would bring.

The police arrived at the concert arresting several of the college students after Tina’s ex-date became bored with the lack of Tina’s attention and started a brawl. Lucky Tina was one of the arrested, and Georgia had slipped out and left Tina behind!

While Tina was waiting to be released, she met Luke Davis, a gorgeous hunk off a mechanic. He had arrived at the LAPD to bail out his younger brother, Joseph, who had also been mistakenly arrested for the campus disturbance. A misfortunate turn of events landed Luke in jail as well.

Add a Los Angeles tremor, a power outage at the LAPD, and Tina and Luke were on the run. They were on a mission to clear Luke’s name. Quickly a romance starts to blossom and an interesting set of events follow.

Will Luke be able to convince Tina that they have a future? Will his plan to win her over be enough?
