Blurb: She wants one night. He wants her forever.
Hayden Summers just landed the job of a lifetime taking pictures for Time magazine, but she’s determined to leave with no regrets. The first thing on her list? Erase the memory of her cheating ex with a wild night of anonymous sex. The second? Figure out why her best friend, sexy bar owner Jace Jennings, stopped speaking to her the night she told him about the job.
Jace has a problem. Hayden isn’t just leaving the country, she’s risking her life—just when he’s realized he’s in love with her. When fate traps them in the storage room of his bar together, barely contained desire simmers to surface. In one last attempt to keep her, Jace offers Hayden the one thing she wants: a night of hot sex, no strings attached. But when the night is over, will Jace be able to let her go? And will Hayden leave with her heart intact?
Thoughts: Hayden is bound and determined to go on a photographic assignment for Time magazine, but considering how risky the venture is – and the risks she is taking with her life – she doesn’t want her last intimate memories to be of a cheating ex-boyfriend from almost a year ago. She has made a vow to herself to have one night of fun before she leaves – and she plans on that fun leading in an intimate one-night stand if she’s lucky.
Jace is captivated when Hayden shows up at his bar in a dress that’s not even suitable to wear a shirt! So when he finds her lying on his bar after volunteering to let someone do shots off her delectable body, he knows there is no way he’s letting some other guy put his lips all over her! Especially since he has already faced the fact that he is in love with her. But does she feel the same way?
I loved this book! The sparks between Hayden and Jace were amazing, and I really enjoyed their chemistry. And the fact that Jace was willing to keep his feelings to himself so that Hayden could have her dream – especially after she was there for him when his dad was sick – really spoke volumes. The fact that he was willing to give her one night – when he really wanted forever with her – was so sweet. And it only got better as the book went on. Each page had me eager for more. The author captured your attention from page one, and managed to keep building on that up until the end. This book had everything a romance reader could want – spicy love scenes, amazing characters, a solid storyline, and a beautiful ending. I wish it could have been a bit longer, especially as I wanted to read more about their lives after the way the book ended. Regardless, I will be looking up more titles from this author.
