"One Perfect Night" by Rachael Johns

My Book Summary : Penelope (Peppa) has heard some stories about her new hot boss, Cameron, not all of them good stories, and now she has to meet him face-to-face to tell him how she dented his Lamborghini earlier that day. Eeek!!

Cameron would like nothing better than to leave his work's Christmas Party for the staff's families but since he is the boss, it's required for him to be there even if he dreads it. So, when this hot little woman, Peppa, comes up to talk to him he is completely enamored with her and happy to find an excuse to leave the party even if it is to deal with his vehicle. After a little while of talking, as a way to spend more time with Peppa, Cameron propositions her---instead of her pulling money together to pay for fixing his vehicle she should attend his family's Christmas Party (which is that same night) as his girlfriend so his family will get off of his back about dating again. To which Peppa reluctantly agrees.

That night they find themselves addicted by lust with each other, making one perfect night turn into a whole lot more. However, they both want different things---Peppa wants a family and Cameron is determined never to get close to anyone again---and both know they shouldn't do anything with each other, as they're co-workers. Yet, fate seems to have other plans for them .... will they listen to fate or be determined to stick to their plans?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars, this novel is thoughtful, sweet, spicy, and poignant!! I loved how the story was written--by not dragging out scenes, filling in the character background when needed, and everything wrapping up nicely! Plus, the characters were great!! Peppa is a sweetheart. Cameron has his own demons but deep down he takes care of everyone he knows. Then the secondary characters just energize this story, making it one I didn't want to put down!

I recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys contemporary romances that are a bit erotic too.

Book Teaser(s) :
“So what am I doing here?”
“I need you to play a role tonight,” he explained. “Act like you were made for the nook of my arm and you’ll have paid your debt. I’ll take you back to collect your car and we’re even. It’s not like I expect anything more.”
At the word more her cheeks instantly flamed. The thought that he expected sex from her had never crossed her mind but now...well...the idea was shockingly enticing.
And laughable. Guys like Cameron McCormac didn’t need to coerce women into sleeping with them. Women’s knees buckled at the feet of men like him.
Which begged the question...exactly why did he need her specifically this evening? Surely he had a little black book thick to bursting with numbers of women more appropriate than she.
Stop thinking, Peppa. ~ within Chapter 2
She felt his smile as his lips brushed teasingly against her ear. “You look tired.”
Her body responded with a delicate shiver and a shake of her head. His hot breath made her feel anything but. “Not. At. All.”
“Still,” he began in a mock-earnest tone, “I think the gentlemanly thing would be to take you in to bed.”
Her lips curled at the dangerous thought. “And I thought chivalry was dead.” ~ within Chapter 8
