Synopsis

A sweet, fun, and sexy stand-alone romance from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.
One night to remember.

Is that too much to desire?

One night for fun, passion, and a chance to remember what it’s like to be woman.
I’m not looking for love.
There’s a man in my life who loves me with all his heart. He has beautiful blue eyes, is three foot tall, and calls me mommy.
He’s my whole world and I’m his. Fate took away his daddy.
What would happen if I allowed fate another chance, one night?

One night to help a friend.

Why did I agree to this?
Blind dates are disasters. If I weren’t helping the friend of a friend, I wouldn’t go.
I’m not looking for romance, love or even a one night stand.
After all, the man my friend knew is gone. I’m no longer the hockey star known for his “pep” on the ice and in the sack. I have a new life, and a new career—a new passion. I’m not looking for more.
When the blind date is a bust, could fate change everything?

A night doesn’t end with a kiss. It begins with one.

Be ready to laugh, cry, and fall head over heels as you let Leatha, the lighter side of Aleatha, take you away with this sweet, sexy, new, stand-alone romance, ONE NIGHT, the perfect reading to keep you warm…hot…steamy…on a cool night.

 

Mary’s 3.5 Star Review

It’s been a long time since I’ve read a book by Aleatha Romig. I enjoyed her darker books in the past, and after reading the synopsis of One Night I was intrigued to see the lighter side of her writing. This book was definitely nothing like her other series’. It had the angst, and the feelings. A contemporary romance with the damaged hero and heroine. It was a good story, and enjoyed the passion that the main characters brought out in one another. Actually, that personal connection was my favorite part of the book.

 

Amanda is a single mother, and Malcolm is looking to changing his old ways. He meets Amanda when he is set up on a blind date by his best friend. When he arrives and sees Amanda at the bar struggling with a bartender’s advances, he swoops in to save her. They get to talking, and drinking, and well that’s where their long night begins. They have an amazing night agreeing to just the one night, but Malcolm just wants more from Amanda. He can tell immediately she isn’t quite ready for a relationship and is skittish at even the mention of seeing him again. It turns out Malcolm isn’t one to give up easily and so their unconventional courtship begins.

 

This story was beyond complicated. Malcolm and Amanda both had a long trail of baggage. They both agree to leave their personal life at the door, so they truly never get to know one another. It’s a relationship driven by sex, and the escape these two both need. I wished at times that the characters, especially Amanda was more honest with her feelings. I felt bad for Malcolm that he invested all his time and energy in a woman who refused to open up to him. He seemed to be the one who was patient, and took all the risks.

 

I guess what I missed from this book was an equal partnership between the hero and heroine. I couldn’t see what they had lasting if they couldn’t meet in the middle. Saying that the story was well written, and Aleatha did an excellent job in bringing out each character’s emotions. She is a wonderful story teller, and I look forward to more books from her both dark and light.
