A delicious new After Dark novella featuring a strong, protective bodyguard and the beautiful, brilliant hotel heiress he protects…

I shouldn’t want my bodyguard the way I do. His job is to protect me. It’s not to fulfill all my filthy wishes.

And so I resist him, fighting the enticing pull of the strong, powerful man who watches over me.

Until the night we combust in my penthouse suite.

It won’t happen again, we say the next day.

Besides, my mission is singular — pull off the event of a lifetime — a one-night only concert with one of the world’s biggest rock stars.

A man my bodyguard happens to know.

And a good bodyguard knows all sorts of things about his client. Turns out he knows my secret desires, and he wants to make them come true. Including a VIP engagement so I can experience both men at the same time…

I want to say yes, but what if I fall even more in love with the man whose mission is to keep me safe?

ONE NIGHT ONLY is a red-hot, sexy love story with a toe-curling, sheet-grabbing MFM sequence.

Thank goodness I picked a cooler day to read this one, because OMG was it HOT. 😉

Ivy and Callum’s story is a bodyguard romance–with a little extra. Callum is relatively new to Ivy’s world–before the story began she had a stalker, and replaced her security–but it appears that their attraction has been going on since the beginning. They haven’t acted on it, for those reasons we all know, but they have become friends, of sorts. But then there’s some major flirting going on, and…why not just one night?

We all know where that’s going, right?

Except their more than one night ends up having something extra–and this will end up being the “one night only” of the title. Probably 😉

Will their night lead to more? For how many of them? 😉 Read One Night Only to find out!

(Can be read in a single sitting…but you may want to have a fan and cool drink handy, because reasons. 😉 )

One Night Only is a prequel novella–Ivy’s twin sister Jade will have her own book (we don’t see a lot of her here, since this is a novella and needs to focus on our MCs) as will Stone and Jackson (they were in here a bit more, since Stone participates in the “one night only” activities and Jackson has…feelings about it ;)) and it definitely does its job of whetting the readers appetite for more from this world! Can’t wait… 🙂

Rating: 4 stars / B+
