[QuoteTastic] 4 stars-- One Night of Sin (After Hours #1) by Elle Kennedy

Ooo this one was steamy! So the quote. I laughed over it. The heroine is basically wanting a one night stand (or well an alley way quickie) with the hero and he's trying his best to put her off because she's much too young and sweet for that kind of thing. Gave me a laugh. 

"I meant what I said last night, Skyler-- you don't need or want a man like me in your life."

So resigned, which only heightened her curiosity, her need to get to know this man. "You act like I'm here to propose marriage." She smiled faintly. "But we both know I came for something else. Gage."

His eyes narrowed. “You asked around about me.”

“Actually, I Googled you.” 

“Yeah, and what’d you find out?” He didn’t look angry, just intrigued. 

“That you really do own this club. That you used to be a professional fighter. And as far as I can tell, you’ve never been arrested for a crime.” 

“I see.” He slanted his head. “And that’s good enough for you, huh? You’re still prepared to let a total stranger fuck you? To spread your legs and let me shove my cock inside you?” 

Her breath caught. “Are you always so blunt?” 


“I…like it.” 

He sighed. “Figures.”

Yeeeeeaaaaaah Elle Kennedy is good for one scorching hot time. One Night of Sin was so much fun! Sweet, sexy, a little filthy. Yes, please! 
The Gist: Sometimes a good girl just needs to be a little bad. Nearly jumping a club's bouncer the second you see him? Ignoring his oh-so heated threats to not show up again or else clothes would fly? Yep. She's going there and doing so gleefully. 
Yeah, Skyler and Gage were fun. I enjoyed them both. He's broody, growly, total alpha male yumminess trying to resist temptation. She's light and sunny. Sweet and wholesome. Total opposites but fit each other so nicely. It was fun seeing them head off. Him throwing out "threats" to scare her away and her leaping on them and shocking the hell out of him. I loved her growing confidence and boldness. Loved seeing him soften up a little as she pulled some emotions out of him. They were cute and sweet and so damn filthy! lol

Yeah, there's a lot of heat going on in this little novella and it was delicious. From the second they met in the alley behind his club things are just electric between them. Ridiculously hot. It's a total case of instalust and, really, they just can't help themselves.

There's a little drama in the background concerning each of their families. It was nice to see some growth in that part of their lives-- especially hers towards the end. 

All in all, One Night of Sin was a win. I enjoyed the characters and the romance. The friends and business partners and, well, the sex. It was oh-so very yummy and sure to heat up your night. 

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.
