Gwen is on vacation on a tropical island with her friends.  On their last night her friend tells her that she called a blind date service so they could have one night to fulfill their fantasies, and her night is on the island.  They leave her alone at the bar to wait for Mr. Hot-and-Sexy to come sweep her off her feet.
Her ultimate fantasy is to have a rich guy shower her with attention and have a passionate night on a private island.  There is a second part to her fantasy which is that this rich man will decide to make her his wife so she doesn’t have to go back to her cocktail waitress job in Vegas.  But for this one night she has Evan.
Evan actually owns the resort that she’s staying at and is the most eligible bachelor she could’ve asked for.  His uncle signed him up for the service and now he just wants to go for it and have fun.  But he doesn’t want her to know who he is.
Evan truly had a seductive night planned out, with even sex on the beach.  But somehow they developed feelings a bit too quickly for me.  The romantic connection for me was just thrown in at the end because it had to be there.  I might’ve been happier with the fact that it was just one night.  I also didn’t care for the heroine as much because I really couldn’t figure out if she really fell in love with Evan, the man, instead of the lavishing lifestyle he showed her that one night.
It was still an entertaining and really short read, perfect for my in between books!

About C.R. Moss

C.R. Moss has been studying the craft of writing since her early teens. It started with working on the school newspaper in middle school to creative writing classes and Teens Art Festivals in high school. She received her BA in Communications, Information and Library Studies from Rutgers College with a strong concentration in English Lit/Writing and Interpersonal Communications/PR. Studying under the mentorship of Terri Valentine (author of ‘Sands of Time,’ a Zebra Historical Romance), she honed her novel writing skills. Now she finds herself taking the occasional online class and devouring all the writing how-to books she can get her hands on.
~ Currently a resident of the hot, high desert in the southwest, C.R. knew she wanted to write at a young age, as early as she learned to read, cooking up stories to entertain herself in the rural, non-kid-laden area she had lived in. But she took a round about way to settle down as a fiction writer, having worked in the corporate and real estate realms writing newspaper articles, press releases, corporate newsletters, etc. Now that she’s settled into the health care industry, she has returned to her first love: creative writing. When she isn’t working at her practice or at her computer cooking up another tale, she can be found hanging out with her husband and cat, reading a book, chillin’ in front of the TV, or working on a craft project. She has also been known to play WOW.

Good review, I too have issues when romantic connections are made too quickly in a book but that is also part of the appeal of the 1Night Stand series – that and the fact they can be read so quickly. Thanks for sharing

I’ve always thought this series was tricky because of how to make these short stories’ Happily Ever Afters work in 1NS.

Thanks for sharing your review!

Thanks!! Some authors can do it well, and some have their story be more of a real one night stand and then rush the HEA because there has to be one.



Thanks for the honest review Francesca…most definitely appreciated!
