Book Review : One Night of Sin (After Hours, #1) by Elle Kennedy


One Night of Sin
After Hours, #1
by Elle Kennedy

Released:
August 4th, 2014

Publisher: Entangled Publishing

Source:

Synopsis:


Sometimes it’s good to be bad… 

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.

Review:


Elle Kennedy's sexy new series, After Hours, is new to me. I am a big fan of the Brazen titles and when a new series or book comes out I am super excited to read them! It was my first time reading a book by author Elle Kennedy and it won't be my last!

Good girl Skyler Thompson wants to take a walk on the wild side. When she meets Gage Holt, the sexy part owner of club Sin, she's in for the sexiest ride of her life. After they share an unforgettable night of passion, Skyler and Gage agree to a few nights of no-strings sex. The more time they spend together, the more they get under each other's skin. When Gage's past comes back to haunt him, will he take the right decisions and fight for the girl that has rocked his world or will his dangerous past make him push her away?

One Night of Sin is the first installment in the After Hours Series. Skylar and Gage are a super hot couple. I loved their chemistry from the very beginning! Elle Kennedy writes some pretty sexy intimate scenes! I loved Gage's dirty talking ways and Skyler's sexy confidence. Gage knows that bringing Skyler into his world is risky. I loved the way he cared for her and how he tried to keep her safe from all of that. Skyler got under his skin, and he could not fight the feelings he had for her. Skyler was exactly the kind of woman that Gage needed in his life. 

Club Sin is the place to be! Three sexy owners, which will all meet their match in the After Hours Series. I love the way this novella gave us a sneak peek for the other two books. The connection that I feel with the characters is very important to me and I feel like Elle Kennedy did an amazing job at introducing us to the characters in this series. I already have One Night of Scandal waiting for me on my reading device, and I can't wait to read Reed and Darcy's story! ;)

Rating:

I give, One Night of Sin, by Elle Kennedy 3.5 sexy, enjoyable, take-a-walk-on-the-wild-side stars!

Book Review: The Honeymoon Period (The Austin Series #4) by C.J. Fallowfield




The Honeymoon Period 

(The Austin Series #4) 

by 
C.J. Fallowfield 
Published May 24th 2014 
By Author Self Pub 
ARC for Review 

Summary 
Book Four in The Austin Series which combines erotica, romance & humour. 

The Honeymoon Period - Definition by www.urbandictionary.com is “The three month maximum period between a person’s entry into a new situation and a person’s complete screwing up of said situation or essential elements of it.” 

While Mia took her operation and diagnosis in her stride, it has taken its toll on Gabe. He desperately wants to convince Mia to change her mind, to one day agree to marry him and start a family, but Mia is still weighted down by the baggage of her past. 

Gabe also struggles with his slow recovery from the accident, while Mia finds his increasing mood swings and possessiveness more and more difficult to handle. The friction only adds to their scorching sexual compatibility. 

Robert Austin, aware that Gabe wants more, presents Mia with a difficult choice. Deal with her commitment issues, or walk away from his son for good. 

Lexi however seems to be making remarkable progress in her personal life, handling not only her miscarriage, but a new relationship with Doug. Is she strong enough to sustain it all? 

The Austin Series is six books in total, and is designed to be read in the following sequence: 

New Leaves, No Strings 
Baggage & Buttons 
Forever & an Engine 
The Honeymoon Period 
Love & Loss 
Infinite Love







Broken Bones Can't Compare to a Broken Heart 
What can I say about this series that I haven’t already said?.. Its just as amazing as I’ve come to expect from Fallowfield. Mia and Gabe are faced with different obstacles in their relationship. This installment really brought forward all of the frustrations these two usually keep bottled up. There is one thing for certain, these two really love each other. I am a mega fan of this series and these characters so I absolutely recommend it.

T-ired, Mia never expected to be the one nursing Gabe back to health.
H-elp, with Lexi and Doug tending to Gabe while Mia cannot she feels a little better.
E-venings, the accident has limited Gabe and Mia’s sex life but she does what she can to keep him happy.


H-ormones, just being in the hospital herself Mia understands Gabe’s frustration.
O-peration, talking about possibly having children isn’t something Mia is ready to deal with.
N-ightmares, Mia knows she has a lot of work to accomplish but she is not ready to deal with her demons.
E-nvironment, a change of scenery will do Mia and Gabe some good. Finally leaving the hospital is like a dream.
Y-earning, something about Gabe calls to Mia like a spell. She has given herself to him completely.
M-ystery, after looking into people and alibis no one seems to know who could have hit Gabe.
O-pportunity, a visit from Gabe’s father will bring many things to light fortunately Mia is able to see it for what it truly is.
O-pen, after a hurtful confession Mia will confide in Gabe’s father and together they come to a dually beneficial decision.
N-aive, Mia can’t understand why Gabe has been so different lately but the arguments only seem to be escalating in frequency.


P-ained, finding out he may never be able to do something he loves Gabe will lash out at the last person he ever wants to hurt.
E-vade, running is something Mia knows too well she will push Gabe as much as she needs to keep her sanity.
R-eflection, Gabe knows he has caused Mia a lot of pain but he can’t help his emotions she drives him crazy.
I-gnite, Mia will not stand for Gabe telling her what to do. Taking a stand against his machismo will push him to the limit.
O-bject, being far from Gabe and his temper is the only thing Mia can think about. She refuses to be his toy to treat and do what he pleases with.
D-etermined, Mia has never been so scared of Gabe he has actually hurt her. Breaking up with him should be the least of her concerns.


That ending was pretty shocking. I could not believe it was my Mia and Gabe. I have to say since I love these two so much and I want them to be happy a lot of the things they did to each other rubbed me the wrong way. They are both so broken but I know they're trying so I hope they find the help they need inorder to be together and happy. The sexy time is as always excellent I’m pretty sure I’m still blushing from some of the scenes in this installment. Hawt hawt hawt Fallowfield steams up the pages!

My Rating
4.5 Hospital, Shoulder, Classes, Trip, Proposal, Living Arangements, Milo, Temper, Frustraion, I quit, Pained Love filled stars! This is an amazing series every adult should pick up!
