One night of passion could be lethal!
Wanting some excitement in her life, Penny Parker heads to Vegas. She’s hoping the guy Madame Evangeline has set her up with will give her more than a thrill.
Cade O’Donnell is a virgin…of sorts. Wanting something he’s never had before, he signs up for the 1NightStand service. Deciding to meet his match in Vegas seems the right setting for his tryst. What better place to have a fling than in Sin City.
Thrills are abundant when Penny and Cade get together. But will it be more than she bargained for? Has Cade bitten off more than he can chew?
Penny has signed up for one of Madame Eve’s 1 Night Stands and heads to Las Vegas where she is paired with Cade.
This is the fourth 1 Night Stand book I’ve read and have to say there’s not one that hasn’t held my interest and this one was no exception. It begins like most of the others but when Cade comes on the scene the author does a wonderful job giving you a sense that there’s something different about him. I loved the way he showed Penny some of the sights of Vegas before they went back to the hotel room. It’s a story full of sexual tension because although there is some interaction between Penny and Cade before they hit the town, the fact that it was pages before they had sex did keep me on the edge of my sit wondering would they, or wouldn’t they or was Cade just there for company?
I hope I won’t spoil this when I say it’s a paranormal and no, I won’t tell you exactly where the paranormal element comes into play but it did put a unique twist on this story and the series as a whole.
The pacing is fast, dialogue natural sounding, and the story is filled with enjoyable characters. If you’re looking for a quick, sexy paranormal, this is a good one to pick.
