A sexy category romance novella from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…
Sometimes it’s good to be bad…
When it comes to sex, good girl Skyler Thompson always plays it safe, choosing stable and sedate over wild and thrilling. She doesn’t do one-night-stands, but one look at sinfully sexy Gage Holt and she’s willing to reconsider. He makes her want to be bad for once in her life, and she’s prepared to take what she wants.
Danger follows former MMA fighter Gage Holt like a shadow. Despite his successes as part owner of Sin, an exclusive nightclub in Boston, Gage can’t risk getting involved with a woman, especially one as sweet as Skyler. Still, he can’t resist a taste—and it’s so damn good he has to see her again.
As addicted as he is to her, Gage knows there’s no future for him and Skyler—not with his past lurking in the dark corners of an MMA cage. But Skylar’s tougher than she looks, and she’s ready to fight for her man.
One Night of Sin (After Hours #1) by Elle Kennedy was available on KU in both digital and audio, so I decided to give it a try. The narrator didn’t work for me so I ended up reading it.
Skylar is on a bad first date in the club where Gage is part owner when they run into each other in a back alley. He has things going down in his life that stop him from wanting a relationship, but when Skylar propositions him he can’t say no…even though he knows she’s too much of a good-girl for him.
Skylar is tired of playing it safe. She wants Gage and she isn’t afraid to go after him. After she shares the hottest encounter of her life with him, she knows she has to go back to the club. They start seeing each other, but Gage is careful to keep it casual..until it’s not.
This was a quick, light read. I enjoyed the story and the romance. I really liked how upfront and honest Skyler was. She called Gage on his crap and didn’t let him get away with ghosting her. She was great. Gage needed someone to call him on his crap.
I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
