Print Length: 223 pages

From **STANDALONE BOOK with no cliffhanger** 
It was only supposed to be one night! 

We met at a wedding. He was hot. And I’d been in a year’s drought. 

He smiled. We got drunk.We flirted. We hooked up. I left early the next morning without saying goodbye. It was only meant to be a one night stand. I didn’t want the awkward morning after moment. Not at all. 

Then I went home for the weekend. And he was there. Sitting on the couch chatting to my dad. Turns out he was more than just a stranger. Turns out that my one night stand was about to cause a whole heap of trouble. Turns out that it never just stops with one night. 

Readers should be 18 and over due to mature situations and language.


My Rating: 1 star out of 5

Oh this book. It started off with such promise. Two strangers engage in a night of red hot passion with no strings attached. 

After that? It fell apart. Quickly. 

There was nothing redeeming about these characters at all. Xander was a cocky jerk who would be cold and cruel to Liv one minute, and the next he's pulling off her panties and tossing her on a bed. And the worst part is, she goes along with it time and time again even when she knows she shouldn't. And don't even get me started on her sister Gabby. 

There was no romance between them until maybe the last few pages, and really there wasn't even any real chemistry. Sure they could fool around and have sex like rabbits, but even that started to feel repetitive after awhile. And some of the scenes were just so inconceivable and badly done that I found myself rolling my eyes more often than not. For example - everyone goes out to breakfast (and by everyone I mean there are at least eight people sitting together not to mention the waitstaff and other patrons) - and here Xander not only has his hand up Liv's skirt, but she has his junk in her hand outside of his pants and absolutely NO ONE notices ANYTHING? Then the pair sneak off to have sex in the bathroom (because that's classy right?), and her sister comes in looking for her. Now you expect to me to believe she didn't look under the stall for feet? And when she did, didn't notice a pair of obviously MALE feet standing there? Nor did anyone think it was strange at all that both Xander and Liv disappeared? Come on now, cut me a break. 

Overall, I can find nothing that would cause me to recommend it to anyone, however I am sure there is someone out there that this book would appeal to.
