Addison Duval has a secret. A delicious, broad-shouldered, six-foot-three secret with hot eyes, rough hands and a rougher past. Charming, handsome, and off-limits, Chase Montgomery is the only man she’s wanted since her father lured him out of a back alley Louisville chop shop to take a job in their tiny town of Decadence Creek.

After Chase finally takes her up on her old proposition that they spend a night together, will Addison let him risk everything so they can be together more than JUST ONE NIGHT?

Sometimes one night is never enough; a life time is a much better option.

Addison is a good girl, working hard to get a career in fashion off the ground and harboring a secret crush on the gorgeous Chase. She offered herself to him once, many moons ago, but he turned her down, broke her heart and sent her fleeing to the other side of the world.

Chase is a bad boy in every sense of the word. After spending time in juvi Addison’s father gave him a second chance to work for him and brought him to Decadence Creek. The only trouble is, even though he has eyes only for Addison, not only does she come and go like a ship in the night, she also has a whole gaggle of burly protective brothers, and that’s before he’s faced her father. Is she worth ruining his life for, and/or getting his face seriously messed up?

I really enjoyed Just One Night, it was well written and held a nice pace. The reader is quickly introduced to the characters and their history without it feeling like an information dump. Chase is totally drool-worthy and I could see why Addison had stripped naked once upon a time and laid in his bed, in the dark, waiting for him – wouldn’t mind doing that myself!

The chemistry was brilliant between the H/H. Their desire for each other sizzled from the page and I devoured this book in one sitting, gobbling up the details and living the moment with them. There are no major external conflicts, it’s about the couple and their relationship which is good in a short story I feel.

If you like contemporary erotic romance, a hero with a heart and a hot body, then put yourself in Addison’s place for a little sexy escapism. I’d happily read more by Ms Ryan.
