Review by Holly

Cassie thought she'd convinced her friends not to throw her some lame birthday party, but when her 25th rolls around, boy was she wrong. Not only is there a birthday party, but there's a stripper, and a bitchy little tramp who insults Cassie's plus-sized curves at her own party. Pissed off beyond belief, Cassie storms out, only to get trapped in a stairwell.

The stripper, Aden, and the bodyguard, Leo, follow her out to check on her, but just their luck, they get trapped in with her. Aden can't believe his luck at being stuck with the gorgeous birthday girl and the Hotty McHotass he's been looking at all night. Hotty McHotass takes the whole thing pretty stoically, just like he does everything else—but you can't judge a book by its cover.

To distract Cassie from a claustrophic panic attack, the boys start up a game of Truth or Dare. Cassie reveals her secret fantasy to have a threesome, and one by one, hearts, souls, and bodies are laid bare. It's a fantasy come true, and so much more, but when the game's over, will it turn out to be just another night, another dream?

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, male/male sexual practices, ménage (m/m/f).

Cassie thinks she and her friend Elly are having a night out dancing in honor of Cassie’s twenty-fifth birthday. After all, she has told her friend over and over, no party. Of course her friend doesn't listen and there's a surprise party. Cassie decides to go along until the stripper and his bodyguard show up. When one of her “friends” mentions Cassie’s weight, she's had it. She storms out, not thinking, and ends up trapped in the stairwell. Aden, the stripper, and Leo, the bodyguard, follow, and before Cassie can warn them not to let the door close, they end up trapped too. Cassie starts to panic, as she suffers from claustrophobia, so Aden starts a game of Truth or Dare, with a decidedly sexy twist. Can these three see past their differences, or will this just be one night of passion and desire for them?

In Another Night, Another Dream, Mechele Armstrong has written a strong, unconventional heroine. I am a sucker for BBW’s as I am one myself. The strength of character each of the three in this stairwell display is wonderful. At the beginning, each has a secret but in order to meet the rules of the game, they reveal their deepest feelings.

When Aden, Leo and Cassie start to loosen up, the fun really begins. I loved that none of these three were what they appeared to be. I loved how Ms. Armstrong managed to break the stereotypes and made these people just plain people, with fears and insecurities just like all of us. When things didn't seem to be working out, I was a bit disappointed. I wasn't sure how it would end. But the twist at the end made it all worthwhile. Hot stairwell action, and more than a few laughs make this book a fantastic read.
