“ Just One Night is all about how a chance encounter can change your life forever.
Kasie Fitzgerald is a predictable, stable gal. She's been dating Dave Beasley for six years and they might be engaged. He's never proposed but he mentioned that they should start talking about looking for rings. Seeing the end of her single girl rainbow, Kasie heads to Las Vegas with her best friend looking for some innocent fun. Then she meets Mr. Dade....
After a hot hook-up with the mysterious Mr. Dade, Kasie heads back for her real life. A few days later she gets a big suprise when she lands an new account at her firm, and guess who is the company's CEO?
Kasie is faced with some tough choices and nobody is making her descisions easy. Will she go with the man she compares to a baked potato? (A great description once explained.) Or will she go with the studly mogul?
Please note-the rest of my review may contain spoilers.
I couldn't help but compare Just one Night: The Stranger to Fifty Shades of Gray. The Stranger isn't a full length novel, but the Kyra Davis's style is a lot like E.L. James. We don't learn much abour Robert Dade aside from his business, and he doesn't show any interest in S&M. I could go on with the comparisions, but it would be a long list. Regardless, I liked Just One Night: The Stranger more than Fifty Shades.
Throughout the whole story, Kasie has a boyfriend. While I understand the importance to the storyline, I don't like books that have cheaters as the hero or heroine. It's hard to empathize with someone who cheats. (At least it is for me.)
I felt like the ending was too abrupt and the actions didn't coincide with the character's established behavior. I was a bit confused and had to re-read the last few pages several times before it finally sank in. I do want to read the next installment just so I can find out what happens.
