Are they ready to gamble on a 1Night Stand?
Mia hides behind her computer, designing popular computer games. And though she knows just what to do to keep men coming back for more on the other end of the modem, she doesn’t seem to have the same knack in person.
Gavin hides behind numbers. Since his wife left him, the only thing he cares about is his son and his job. One failed relationship was enough, but if the right curvaceous woman came into the picture he just might manipulate the numbers a bit.
Can two meddling sisters enlist Madame Eve to bring Mia and Gavin together and show them two is always better than one?
Mia creates computer games and her sister has signed her up at Madame Eve’s 1 Night Stand service. She’s matched with Gavin who is at the same computer game convention as Mia.
This is the second 1 Night Stand story I’ve read and this one was just as entertaining as the first. I especially liked the nice set up in such a short space. The author did a good job with quickly introducing us to the characters, what they did and some of their background. They came across as fun and a perfect match for one another.
I liked the idea that Mia had a different, almost geeky career, to most heroines in other books, and that she wasn’t model perfect in looks either. Both things made her seem more real on the page. Gavin is well portrayed as a nice guy and you feel yourself urging him on to see Mia again.
The sex is hot and well placed throughout this short story. If you’re looking for more books in this series or if it’s your first time sampling it, I’d say give this one a read.
