“First, my review is based on the QUALITY of the writing, pace, if the story drew me in. That said, yes, this is about deceit and infidelity at first look. Not 'happy' topics, not the first books written about the topics. But, I was completely sucked in to this story!
Kasie Fitzgerald, is a successful, educated business woman who has always tried to fit into the molds expected of her. She was the perfect daughter, the perfect employee, the perfect girlfriend, dressing appropriately, acting appropriately, ignoring the side of her that wanted to be free.
One night in Las Vegas with a friend changed her, perhaps beyond the ability to go back to her 'perfect' little world, finding a side of her that seemed to complete her being. She had a one night stand with a mysterious and compelling stranger, thinking she would be able to resume her life and forget about it.
Kasie returns to work and finds that a new client has requested she run his account. His business is huge for her firm and she discovers it is Robert, her one night stand.
Kasie must decide what is right for her, and she is struggling with doing 'the right thing' by marrying Dave, a lukewarm, yet good man or tossing everything away for Robert and how he brings her to life.
The erotic portions of the book were passionate, but not overpowering. The characters were real, the writing intense with emotion.
This ARC copy of Just One Night: The Stranger Part 1 was given to me by Netgalley and Simon & Schuster - Pocket Star in exchange for an honest review. Published Date January 21, 2013. A definite five-star for me! ”
