New York’s hottest “sexpert” has been living a lie—and it’s up to one man to keep her honest . . . all night long.
Riley McKenna knows sex – good sex, bad sex, kinky sex…Her articles in Stiletto magazine are consistently the publication’s most scandalous—and the most read. But Riley has a secret…all that sexy talk? Not an ounce of it comes from personal experience. Her own bedroom escapades are more limited than even her best friends know. When her editor requests that all columnists write something more personal for Stiletto’s anniversary issue, Riley turns to the one man she’s always been able to count on and calls in the favor of a lifetime.
Sam Compton would do anything for Riley McKenna. Anything except be her experimental sex toy. He refuses her request. At least until she tells him that it’ll either be him or she’ll go to someone else. And that, Sam can’t accept. Reluctantly he agrees to her terms—one night of completely meaningless sex in the name of research. Riley thinks she’s prepared for what awaits her in Sam’s bed. After ten years of writing about sex, actually doing it shouldn’t be that different, right? So wrong. What starts as “one time only” becomes “just one more time.” And then one more. And before they know it, Riley and Sam learn first-hand that when it comes to love, there’s no such thing as just one night.
Riley McKenna is a journalist for Stiletto Magazine. Her biggest issue is all the sex she writes about is fake. She has not had sex in ten years and no one knows. Now Riley has to write a personal article. Therefore, Riley tries breaking all the years of abstinence with Sam and making that the focus of her article.
Sam Compton is a hot and sexy man who seems to spend more time with Riley’s family than his own. Sam seems to have issue with his self-esteem, which is why after tinkering with his whiskey for years he still has not looked to sell it. Sam is a hardheaded man.
The chemistry between Riley and Sam is blistering. The sex scenes were scorching. These two make a great couple if they stop playing games with each other and keep putting all there cards on the table. It came across as unrealistic.
Just One Night is the third book in the Sex, Love & Stiletto series by Lauren Layne. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. I found this book to be well written. This book was very slow to start but picked up as the book went along. The main and secondary characters were interesting. Overall, this was a great book. I will be keeping my eyes out for future books by Ms. Layne.
Lauren Layne graduated from Santa Clara University with a B.S. in political science that she has yet to put to good use. After dabbling in an e-commerce career in Seattle and Southern California, Layne moved to New York City, where she now writes full-time. She lives with her husband and their plus-size pomeranian in a tiny Manhattan studio.
