In this New York Times best-selling erotic trilogy, a buttoned-up businesswoman takes her friend's advice and has a fling with a stranger on a trip to Vegas - only to find herself under his mysterious, sexy power both in the boardroom and the bedroom.
Kasie Fitzgerald knows who she's supposed to be. She's a rising-star-workaholic at a global consulting firm. She's the fiancée of a well-connected man who's won the approval of her parents. People know that she's reliable, serious, proper, cautious, pragmatic, and yes, a little predictable. She's who Dave and her family want her to be.
But as her 30th birthday looms, buried feelings begin to resurrect. Her friend takes her to Vegas for one last wild-and-crazy night. In a dress much shorter and sexier than anything she has ever dared to wear before, she hits the blackjack tables. And meets him. Under the tailored clothes it's clear that this is a man who is intense, powerful, and maybe even a little dangerous. With a touch of trepidation she accepts his invitation to get a drink, and before long, she's in his hotel room.
She never gets his full name. Perhaps his anonymity is one of the reasons she's able to give herself over to him and to the moment so completely. Perhaps it's why she's just had the most exquisite and passionate sex of her life. Shaken by her own behavior, Kasie tries to chalk it up to one crazy night. But when the mysterious gentleman she's just had a fling with shows up in her office - as the CEO of a firm her company does a billion dollars of business with a year, demanding that she handle his account, and so much more - things will never be the same again. And there's no telling where this will go....

Amazing story line differs from the regular pretty shy girl meets hot guy..........
Different story line with a twist
I think Grace Grants gives her own emphasis on the story where it needs to be... She is a very good....
When Robert and Kassie break up and they are apart for months when he realize that he needs to be with her
Excellent listen!!! Also a terrific read... Read the trilogy before listening gives a different feel to the book
Well, I certainly would recommend it to women. My wife was completely blown away by the book, not to mention turned on. But she was also drawn into the story. And you know what? So was I. I think I would recommend the book to men who have women in their lives. I should note, I suppose, that we also read the book on Kindle.
I don't know about books because I have not read too many female erotic books - or any to be fair. But it did remind me of some films. "9 1/2 Weeks," "Body heat", and "Eyes Wide Shut" come to mind.
Is that the narrator? I thought she was terrific. I had kind of imagined the characters differently in my mind's ear - but it was fun to hear her.
There are many parts that made us both laugh. The author has a great sense of humor. I suppose there were some emotional parts, but mostly there was terrific energy to the book and the story. But I have to say, the eroticism of all these books were simply off the charts. Honestly, I thought y wife was going to have her heart stopped during some of the scenes. Glad I was there to help her though it.
When is Kyra Davis coming out with another one?
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Kasie has suppressed her true personality all of her life due to a tragedy in her childhood and from her parents expectations. On a trip to Vegas before she expects to become engaged she has sex with a stranger resulting in consequences she never expects. Her life is forever changed.
This was a good listen and the author has a different flair of writing that I enjoyed. It does contain sexual content, so be advised. Definetly worth the credit.
Yes I would but not without careful consideration.
I have on the Inside Out series and she is ok as a narrator, but on this book her voice was really annoying!
I really really tried to get into this book and enjoy it but by the 2nd phase I was so annoyed and frustrated that, I just couldn't take it anymore I had the need to SLAP somebody! The entire story line had real potential but after each setup and move, it just got further and further away from a good story line. Some of the stuff I felt was just a filler and I saw a little growth for Kasie but I truly wish the 3rd phase would have been more growth for the couple but no it was filled with unnecessary drama. Some may like this but this was not it for me.
No, I'm a fan of the Sophie Katz series and thought that I would enjoy this one. It was just okay to me. It was predictable.
It was too long. The story could have been told in half of the time.. Either more plot twists or shorten the story.
The narrator was decent. I would probably look for more books done by her.
No, it took a couple of days.
While I wouldn't return the book, I was just a little disappointed but not enough that I won't listen to another Kyra Davis book.
I'll read anything good. I'm easy that way.
Kasie is a good girl. Engaged to the perfect guy -- she has the perfect job and an implied marriage proposal. So why when a friend suggests she sleep with a stranger during a trip to Vegas, does the good girl go bad? What comes of that encounter will turn Kasie's life, and the the lives of all those around her, upside down and sideways. This book is a tour de force of finding out who you are and what you truly want.
The romance was an intense power play between the ultimate controlling man and the woman who wants to control her own life. And the sex was HOT! The story was moving without being sentimental, and the complex lives of Ms. Davis' characters were laid out bare, and so much more inventive than the usual fare. The twists and turns had my jaw dropping over and over again!
I was glued to my Kindle for two days running. I loved it!
Just One Night is also the perfect marriage between a fascinating story and the perfect reader. Grace Grant is my all time favorite reader in this genre. Her voices are perfect, and her rendering powerful. I hope Ms. Davis gives us many more novels. Highly recommended!

I was so mad that she kept taking every bodies crap. Most of all what she experienced with her fiancé really pissed me off.
I know a lot of books these days have the women in the role of needing help from some big strong man, but at the same time I suppose that's the fantasy. I say that because as I listen......my mind does wonder what if I had a powerful rich man who could sex me up and give me anything I ask for, who is in control of everything therefor I'd have to do nothing. Then the book is over and I'm just me living the life I lead and think about how it would piss me off if someone were trying to dictate to me what I can or couldn't do, so I repeat its just a fantasy
I've read some of this author's other books, but only the Sophie Katz stories. Based on the summary, I thought this was going to be a humorous read as well.
Yeah, I was wrong...
This book is like "torn between two lovers," except one of them is kind of psycho, and the other one thinks he's a god of sorts. And reliable, steady Casey really ... spends time on her two options. The book would have been shortened tremendously if the main character didn't just fantasize about having sex and just went out and did what she wanted and followed her instincts. I did predict how it would end as well.
the narrator did n excellent job of narrating. Her voices for the characters she used was constant throughout.
I will probably read more books by this author and with this narrator. I'll just know more of what I shouldn't expect in the future.
I got this book because I love Grace Grant, she is one of my favorite readers. The book kept me interested and kept me guessing quite nicely. I liked it and hated it at the same time. Sorry if that sounds confusing but thats what it did for me. I liked that it wasn't your typical fsog copy cat but I just didn't feel for any of the characters, It was kind of like watching a pile up on the freeway, and can't help but look at the carnage when you drive by. GG did a good job as usual, this book could have been way worse if not for her. So theres my fifty cents take from it what you will.
I don't buy "romance" novels, and after reading all the Sophie Katz books by this author, had no reason to suspect this would be a dramatic change from the humorous, self-effacing, witty and clever Sophie Katz mysteries.
Boy, was I wrong! This is total eroticism VERY thinly disguised as a woman's search for independence and a sense of self. When it began with a woman on the brink of marriage reluctantly trying to have a good time in Las Vegas in provocative and revealing clothing, I still thought it might be a humorous example of how badly that could turn out.
However, the book is a continual venture into all eroticism, all the time. The message seems to say that to find yourself, you first have to act out all of your sexual fantasies (generally in front of others). Only after doing this again, and again, and again....can you stand on your own two feet (or generally lie down).
There is no humor, no wit, and certainly no mystery. Sophie Katz is much too smart to be caught dead in this book! What was this author thinking??
