From #1 NYT bestselling author Lauren Blakely comes a sexy new standalone romance!

I couldn’t have scripted a more perfect night.

For one fantastic evening, at a masquerade party in the heart of Manhattan, I’m not the millionaire everyone wants a piece of. Fine—multimillionaire. But who’s counting all those commas? Not me, and not the most intriguing woman I’ve ever met, who happens to like dancing, witty banter, and hot, passionate up-against-the-wall sex as much as I do.

There’s no need for names or business cards. And that’s why I’m eager to get to know her more, since my mystery woman seems to like me for me, rather than for my huge…bank account.

Everything’s coming up aces. Until the next day when things get a little complicated. (Newsflash — a lot complicated.)

***

He’s charming, brilliant, an incredible lover, and right now I want to stab fate in the eyeballs.

I’ve had one goal I’ve been working toward, and lo and behold, my mystery man is the very person who stands between me and my dream job. A job I desperately need since my hard-knock life has nothing in common with his star-kissed one.

But it’s time to put that fairytale night behind me, and focus on learning what makes him tick. Too bad it turns out his quirks are my quirks, and his love affair with New York matches mine.

And as we spend our days together, I discover something else that feels like a cruel twist of fate — I’m falling for this naughty prince charming, and that’s not an ending I can write to our story.

EXCERPT

~FLYNN~

I part my lips to speak, to tell her I’m not a VC. But I flash back to the racquetball game, to the face-lift suggestion from my sister. If this angel thinks I’m a VC, that means my face-lift is working. My costume is doing what I want it to do—it’s making it possible for me to be me. To have a conversation as Flynn Parker the guy, not as Flynn Parker the multimillionaire.

She doesn’t know who I am. And I don’t correct her. “It can be.”

She nods thoughtfully then roams her gaze over my black attire. She taps her bottom lip. “Hmm. Let’s see what we have here tonight because I don’t think you’re a ninja.”

I punch the air. “Keep going.”

She studies me more closely. “You’re something mysterious. You’re trying to fly under the radar. Am I getting warmer?”

More like hot. “Yes.”

Her brow knits. “You want to go unnoticed, at least for the moment.”

I tense, hoping she’s not putting two and two together as to my identity. Absently, I raise my hand to my glasses, wondering if they give me away. But then I remember. I’m wearing my contacts tonight, something I rarely do.

She snaps her fingers. “I know! You’re a stealth start-up,” she says, using the term for a new company that’s keeping quiet.

I raise my arms in victory, a thrill racing through me. “Everyone else has guessed code ninja or SEO ninja, but you’re the first person all night to get it right. I am, indeed, a stealth start-up.”

Admittedly, donning black pants, a black shirt, and a black eye-mask might have made it challenging to guess. But then again, the angel figured it out, and all without the missing start-up button.

“Your lips gave you away.”

She recognized me from my lips? I furrow my brow behind my mask. “What do you mean?”

“Your mouth,” she says, raising her fingers dangerously near to my lips. “I could tell you weren’t a ninja because your lips aren’t covered. Ninjas cover you’re their mouths.” I relax again since she was referring to my clothes. “Only their eyes show. But you’ve covered most of your eyes, and you’re showing only your mouth and your chin. That’s how I knew you had to be something other than a ninja.”

“I could kiss you for that,” I blurt out. I take a step back and hold up a hand. “I’m sorry. That was probably terribly inappropriate.”

A smile slowly spreads across her lips. “No, it wasn’t inappropriate. It wasn’t inappropriate at all,” she says. Something in the way she takes her time with each word tells me she wouldn’t mind being kissed. That gives me one mission and one mission only: keep talking to this angel.

 A single glimpse in her innocent eyes and he knows he has to have her.

And yep, it’ll still give you the feels!

I had an absolute blast writing this collaboration with one of my very best friends, Rebecca Shea, and we’re so proud to bring it to you. It’s a departure from what we typically write, but there is something about it that just hit the spot 😉 

I hope you love Paxton and Kaylee’s super fun, sexy story ❤

5 Stars ~ Reviewed by Emma-Louise on behalf of KFF

Kaylee Rose, one very interesting woman, striving to live a quiet normal life. Someone should have warned her to choose another best friend if that was her true wish. Being the supportive friend she is, Kaylee does something to help and support her best friend Elle. One small decision causes ripples throughout her life, some good and some catastrophic.

“Don’t do that,” I hissed.
“Don’t do what?”
“That thing you do. where you act like nothing is a big deal when you know as well as I do it’s a really big deal.”
 

One small fall leads her directly into Paxton Myles. A man with more charms than a Pandora bracelet, he oozes sex appeal better than any male underwear model.

‘Warily, I peeked up at my saviour,
Breath gone.
Eyes wide.
Stomach, a mixed-up pool of desire and embarrassment on the floor.
An earth-shattering smile full of bright white teeth had my heart rate shifting into high gear, but it was the playful brown eyes full of mischief and sex that had my knees knocking.’
 

One Wild Night is a novella, which of course means that the relationship builds quicker than a flat pack box. From instalust this book weaves around and around, some patches smooth and some coarse like sand. Meddling, wicked characters fight tooth and nail to throw up roadblocks and even once manages to activate a volcano.

‘Life was little more than a gathering of memories.
These were memories I was never going to let go of.’
 

The romance between Kaylee and Paxton develops well, especially for a novella. Nothing feels forced and each small nuance is impactful and full of feelings and sentiment.

“I’d gladly tear you apart, Kaylee Rose. But I promise you, it will be in the very best way. So good, in fact, you’ll be begging me to do it again and again.”
Shivers skated along my flesh.
There was no question in my mind he’d make good on his promise.’
 

I found myself early on wanting to step through the pages and shake a certain person, and even once considering the realistic potential of throttling someone else. Emotional investment in this read was higher than I knew what to do with. When I had to put it down for even a little while and go do real life stuff, I was either grumpy or had so much anticipation about the story to come, I didn’t know how to cope.

“I never wanted to make things complicated for you.”
He grinned that smile that I’d always known would wreck me. “Don’t ever stop making things complicated for me, baby. That’s just the way I like it. Let the rest of the world think what they like. As long as I’ve got you and you’ve got me, that’s all we need.”
 

When the cover was revealed for this book I was completely gaga about getting my hands on this one. I have seen so many books that appear high quality, and I will say sexy covers fall flat because the story inside just didn’t cut the mustard. Hand on heart, this wasn’t the case here. One Wild Night was a tilt a whirl of ups and downs and enough high stakes at times to give someone a coronary. Realistic scenarios and enough heat and smex to fog up your windows, I cannot recommend this one enough. Bravo ladies for hitting the ball out of the park on this one, I’ll be one clicking the next one as soon as it hits the web!
