PFC James Westwood isn't a typical Marine. As a clinical psychologist, he recognizes his band of brothers needs a helping hand after their return home from the war. When his boss, Captain Dexter, encourages him to sign up for the 1-Night Stand dating service, Westwood committed himself. What did he have to lose? The last thing he expected was a date with screen goddess Lauren Kincaid.
Movie star Lauren Kincaid grew up splitting her time between the cold reality of the Hollywood scene and her family home in Plano, Texas. After two decades surrounded by artificial friendships and inflated egos, her greatest desire is to meet a real man, not a Hollywood talking head. When her agent suggests a 1-Night Stand date, the only expectations Lauren allows herself to have are discretion and exclusivity. What she didn't expect was having a gorgeous psychologist with rapier wit blow her away.
James and Lauren share an unmistakable connection, but when one of James' patients suffers a crisis, Lauren more than proves her mettle. Can one night turn into happily ever after for this Marine and his movie star?
I enjoy the author's writing - she fleshes out characters very well for a short story format. This one was a little boring though - very little sex (he's a psychologist, so he's very stoic too) and more on their dinner together, then helping one of his patients who went out with his friends and had a panic attack.
Yes, they do have their One Night Stand together and do end up staying together as a couple 'falling in love' but I didn't see this as a true erotica story. Must have been put in the wrong category by accident. It's a sweet enough tale - more of a Chick Lit type of story though.

it was hard to listen to, I didn't like how the narrators voice or how it was read. I will be avoiding books by this narrator.
