Entangled Publishing



The wrong man never felt so right... 

Ex-fighter Reed Miller has been secretly lusting over his best friend’s girl for months, but he refuses to jeopardize a friendship over a woman—especially one who doesn’t like him all that much. Now that Darcy’s on the market again, it’s even more imperative to stick to his strict hands-off policy. But the sizzling attraction between them is too powerful to ignore, and once he’s had a taste of her…all bets are off. 

Darcy Grant is tired of walking the straight and narrow path. She’s on the hunt for passion, and there’s no denying Reed is just the man to give it to her. Although she has no interest in dating a bad boy, and certainly not her ex’s best friend, it’s impossible not to melt beneath Reed’s skillful touch. Now it’s just a matter of setting a few ground rules—and hoping her rule-breaking, sweet-talking bad boy agrees to follow them. But if she lets Reed into her bed, does she stand a chance of keeping him out of her heart?

My Review of One Night of Sin


Another wickedly deliciously reading escape by Elle Kennedy!

A couple of days ago I had the chance to discover One Night of Sin, which is the first installment in the After Hours Series. I really loved Elle Kennedy's page-turning writing style, her awesome characters and the intense chemistry that her main characters share. I really liked Gage and Skyler's story, and I could not wait to start reading One Night of Scandal. I really loved Reed in One Night of Sin, and Darcy as well.

One Night of Scandal is Darcy and Reed's story. Reed Miller is a co-owner at Club Sin and Darcy Grant is a teacher looking for some passion that haunts his every dream, but she's his best friend's girlfriend as well. When AJ and Darcy break it off, Reed knows that it's only a matter of time before Darcy gets under his skin and he ends up breaking some pretty important rules when it comes to his friendship with AJ. Their attraction to each other is too intense, and once they give in, both of them want more of each other. What started as a fling soon grows into something more, but will Darcy be able to give her bad boy a chance to prove that what he feels for her is FOREVER love?

Holy Moly! Trust me when I say that your panties will not survive this one! Reed Miller is a-first-class dirty talker and he knows exactly what to say or do to turn any woman into mush! Lucky Darcy! He turned her world upside down and made her every fantasy come true. He was such an amazing hero to follow. I loved to see him fall hard for Darcy and how he changed his bad boy ways to conquer the woman who made him believe in love. But, not only that, he's such a giving and tender person. I loved to see him share his Sundays with Devon, a student from Darcy's school. Such an amazing bond between the two of them was developed. This really made me smile big! :)

Don't even get me started on how much I loved Darcy! She's exactly the kind of heroine I love to cheer for! I can totally see myself becoming her friend and that is exactly what pulls me into the story. I have to admit that she was a bit stubborn, and at one point of the story I was screaming at her to wake-up and smell the coffee! Girl!! What's wrong with you?!?! Don't you see this sexy beast of a man who is trying to give you everything you ever wanted?! lol!!! I'm sorry, but sometimes I get too involved in the story. Both of them had a problem giving in to their feelings because AJ is present in their daily life. It made for some very awkward moments, but it was only normal. Darcy and Reed broke their own rules, but Oh boy, was it so worth it at the end!

Like I said in my previous review of One Night of Sin, Elle Kennedy knows how to write some pretty scorching intimate scenes. I lost count of all the place that these two shared intense moments of passion. Let me just tell you that I won't be looking at the farmers market the same way EVER again. *Fans Freakin' Self* This book was fun, sexy, intense and an overall page-turning reading escape! One Night of Scandal left me with one particular question .... Who in the world will rock AJ's world? Darcy was a pretty intense heroine and they did not click together. I really can't wait to see who will show up to turn AJ's world upside down! She must be one hell of a heroine! Eeeeeep!!! Soooo excited for AJ's story! :)


I give, One Night of Scandal, by Elle Kennedy 4 scorching, melt-your-panties-sexual-tension-filled stars!
