Series: Just One Night #1


Kasie knows who she’s supposed to be. But one passionate night with a mysterious stranger will teach her who she wants to be.

You should sleep with a stranger, her best friend whispers in her ear as they take to Vegas for one last pre-wedding fling. Despite her best intentions, when Kasie Fitzgerald enters the casino and sees him, a man whose tailored clothes belied a powerful, even dangerous, presence, she loses herself to the moment. Maybe it’s the dress, much shorter than she’d ever normally wear, or the Scotch, but something makes her give herself over to him more completely than she’s ever done with a man before.

It was supposed to be just one night. But right as she’s thinking she wants more, he shows up in her office with an agenda. As the billionaire CEO of a company that’s engaged her PR firm, his demands just became her reality…and he desires so much more than just some attention in the boardroom.

My Thoughts

As expected we’ve got an interesting little love triangle going on that’s going to most likely end up in a bad place.  We meet Kasie who is a very successful professional at a consulting firm, however her life is very routine and vanilla.  Her best friend decides that they need a weekend in Las Vegas so that Kasie can just have a little bit of a fling before deciding to get engaged to her partner of 6 years, and she does just that.  She meets Robert at the casino and things just spiral out of control from there.

there’s a chemistry that they can’t deny and a power that draws her to him and lets her just put all her common sense to the side.  After that one night, she never expected to cross his path again, except that he requested the services of her company and her personally to lead the team.

So, this is when things get dicey right? she’s still in her relationship with Dave who’s just routine to her – she’s slowly realizing that he’s not the right one for her, but feels somewhat obligated to keep things going.  All the while, she’s still drawn to Robert and they have a heated passionate chemistry that makes you really wish that you were a part of their fantasy.

While she has lukewarm interactions with Dave, she feels treasured with him and that he cares deeply for her as a person.  the tradeoff of course though is that with Robert, he demands things of her, tells her what to do and that’s something that she just doesn’t know what to do with.  He brings out a side of her that she never knew she had both in the bedroom and in life in general.

The question that comes from this is what will Kasie choose to do and will she do it in time?  I always like to think that i have a sense about story lines, and in this case, with the hints that are dropped about some of her co-workers, i’m expecting the story to get much jucier, and that it does in the last few pages.

so…onto book 2 to see where things go.  we were left on the edge of our seat – and i’m sure that the next installment won’t disappoint.
