He wants just one night…
After growing up with an abusive, alcoholic father, Army Special Forces Sgt. Brady Scott vowed never to marry or have kids. Sent stateside to get his head on straight—and his anger in check—Brady’s looking for a distraction. He finds it in his beautiful new neighbor’s one-night-only offer for hot sex, but her ability to make him forget is addictive. Suddenly, Brady’s not so sure he can stay away.
…what they need is each other.
Orphaned as a child, community center director Joss Daniels swore she’d never put herself in a position to be left behind again, but she can’t deny herself one sizzling night with the sexy soldier who makes her laugh and kisses her senseless. When Joss discovers she’s pregnant, Brady’s rejection leaves her feeling abandoned. Now, they must overcome their fears before they lose the love and security they’ve found in each other, but can they let go of the past to create a future together?
I was so excited to see that I had the chance to review another one of Laura’s books. I wasn’t sure what to expect after reading North of Need and West of Want. Her writing seems to be so seamless whether a fantasy/paranormal or a contemporary romance.
Brady Scott is out for a run and reminiscing about family when he sees her. He loves how she looks. At first, she doesn’t want anything to do with him. Right from the gate, Laura has them flirting with each other. But does flirting lead to other things?
Jocelyn “Joss” Daniels doesn’t have faith in men and the word commitment. But I do love her description of Brady. Laura has Brady’s mannerisms down to a “T”. You can just about picture how Brady acts in his apartment. And he has a great next door neighbor. They will also have you laughing.
Laura is a very smart writer. She realizes that not all readers love those stories that are all happy from beginning to end. But Laura’s story has more of a realistic feel to it. There are just times that we wonder how a person’s past has shaped their life. But she does give her readers the perfect Christmas happy ending. There just seems to be something about this time of year that we just have to have our happy endings.
When I got to the end, I was happy to see that she also wrote a story for Brady’s sister. The book is titled Her Forbidden Hero and it came out this past June. I tried to scope out her web site, http://laurakayeauthor.com/, but had no success to finding out if there will be a book 3. We will have to wait and see. In the meantime, I will have to go and read Alyssa’s story and wait patiently for Laura’s next book to come out. (Reviewed by Lynn from Romance Reader Enthusiast)
