Publisher's Summary

One night of passion.

After dumping her cheating fiancée, straight-laced Julia Hopkins decides to focus on herself for a change. A weekend getaway with a friend and one-night stand with a sexy stranger was exactly what she needed to kick off her new life. It was her chance to be someone else, if only for a little while. But Julia's wild night comes back to haunt her when she discovers the identity of her sexy stranger.

One night he'd remember.

Simon Shelton never forgot the passionate wild cat he'd met by chance, despite not even knowing her last name. She'd made quite the impression. So he was surprised when the quiet college professor his sister tried to set him up with turned out to be his Julia. Because of their past and the way she'd left without a word, Simon thought it would be best for everyone involved to steer clear of his sister's friend. But keeping his hands off the irresistible redhead was easier said than done.

I CANNOT Express How Much I Love Modern Girl's ♥



Julia is having a rough time. After finding her fiancé in a compromising position, she is floundering and doesn't really know how to move on. It's a good thing she's got a friend like Meg. While attending a function, Meg encourages Julia to pick up a man for a one night stand. Julia is appalled with the idea, but as she is people watching a very handsome and funny man approaches her. For the next little while they sit at the bar and make up stories about the people they observe.

Shy Julia is drawn to the hot and sexy, Simon. She invites him back to her room! He accepts and as they make their way to their her room he wants to make sure he is understanding the signals that she seems to be sending. He bluntly asks, if by inviting him to her room does she intend to have sex with him? Julie surprises herself with a yes!

The night is filled with passion, however when Simon wakes up in the morning, he finds that he is all alone. No note, phone number or explanation. But what does he expect from a one night stand?

Julia is feeling a lot better about her broken engagement, especially after the evening she had before. Perhaps there is a light at the end of the tunnel…

While she never expects that she will see this man again, he is on her mind constantly – including her dreams.

She does feel better after her one night stand with this Simon . It is time to move on… A lot of time passes but she is clinging to the memory of her in one night with Simon.

They soon cross paths again in a really awkward and uncomfortable position. Do they pretend they don't know one another? Do they pursue the relationship? Are they even going to make it through the long weekend?

The journey of Simon and Julia is packed with passion, action, hurt, friendships, vulnerability, strength and of course the insensitive and tone deaf former fiancé.

I love these books. They are the ultimate in contemporary romance! A good story with some spice in the boudoir and out. :-)

Lynn Barrington is one of my two favorite female performers. She has the gift to bring this well-written story to life. She NEVER disappoints. If you ever come across something that interests you and she is the narrator, snatch it right up. You will not regret it.

Thanks for reading my thoughts on this ~ I find that reviews help me in deciding whether or not to purchase a books, especially new authors or performers. If you found this review helpful would you take a moment and select 'YES' below the next paragraph? Feel free to follow me on Audible.

POV

Im more of a POV type of listener but Gina makes it wotks very well for her story. I love the connection between the best friends, one conservative, the other a bit wild driving the realtionship and story. overall, I cant beg for my lost time on this book but, Ive been ruined by the major alpha males in Meghan March stories. I will definitely read this series.

Nice continuation of the series

This was great. I liked everything about it. I’d would have liked to get an epilogue but hopefully we will see more of these two in later books.

I’m sad to see that there isn’t audio for future books in this series. Please Audible produce some. These first two books on audio have been great!!

Where is the Ending

This was a 3.5 - 4 Star listen for me until the very end... when there wasn't an end. I definitely preferred this over the first story but I also like to have some idea of the conclusion.

This book has me second guessing

I'm not a romance reader. I've had friends recommend romance books for years, and I could just never quite get over the cheesy machismo that most had. But this book. Wow. Beautifully told story. Maybe it connected because it hit a little close to home for me in many ways, but I couldn't put it down.
