*Swoon* I am in love with Kyra Davis’ new Just One Night series. I read this one in one whole sitting.
I’m surprised… Just One Night, Part I: The Stranger is built on the fact that the heroine, Kasie, cheats on her boyfriend while in Vegas. I thought I’d have a big issue with this, but I didn’t. The cheating is almost immediate. You don’t know Kasie yet. You don’t know Kasie’s boyfriend. There is no emotional bonds there and by the time you learn about Kasie’s boyfriend, you still aren’t bothered by it because you can clearly see that what Kasie is doing is something she so desperately needs in her life. She needs to have the boat rocked. She needs to be loved like this. She needs to break free, and as nice of a guy that her boyfriend is, you have a hard time blaming her. No one deserves lifetime of love that has the emotional depth of plastic kiddie pool. It’s just enough to satisfy some inner need, but quickly grows warm and stagnant. Everyone deserves an ocean– filled with constant freshness, and discovery, and yes, even danger, but more beauty then anyone can truly behold in a lifetime.
… look at me getting all enlightened– and slightly cheesy.
I stare at the woman in mirror, her hair loose around her shoulders, commanding sensual.
“I want to know you, ” I say to her.
And in response she smiles.
“You should sleep with a stranger,” her best friend whispers in her ear as they take to Vegas for one last pre-wedding fling. Despite her best intentions, when Kasie Fitzgerald enters the casino and sees him, a man whose tailored clothes belied a powerful, even dangerous, presence, she loses herself to the moment. Maybe it’s the dress, much shorter than she’d ever normally wear, or the Scotch, but something makes her give herself over to him more completely than she’s ever done with a man before.
It was supposed to be just one night. But right as she’s thinking she wants more, he shows up in her office with an agenda. As the billionaire CEO of a company that’s engaged her PR firm, his demands just became her reality…and he desires so much more than just some attention in the boardroom.
