A sweet, fun, and sexy stand-alone romance from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.
One night to remember
Is that too much to desire?
One night for fun, passion, and a chance to remember what it’s like to be a woman.
I’m not looking for love.
There’s a man in my life who loves me with all his heart. He has beautiful blue eyes, is three feet tall, and calls me mommy.
He’s my whole world and I’m his. Fate stole his daddy way too soon.
What would happen if I allowed fate another chance, just for one night?
One night to help a friend
Why did I agree to this?
Blind dates are disasters. If I weren’t helping the friend of a friend, I wouldn’t go.
I’m not looking for romance, love, or even a one-night stand.
After all, the man my friend knew is gone. I’m no longer the hockey star known for his “pep” on the ice and in the sack. I have a new life, and a new career—a new passion. I’m not looking for more.
When the blind date is a bust, could fate change everything?
One night doesn’t end with a kiss—it begins with one.

This is definitely on the lighter side for A. Romig, and she did such an amazing job with type of novel. I was hooked instantly; everything about it was amazingly well written and the pace was fitting for what the topic of the novel centered around.
“You said you want one night. One night doesn’t end with a kiss. It begins with one.”
The characters were easily likable and I’m not just talking about the main ones. Even the side characters were amazingly thought out and fit into the story perfectly. Romig has a way of giving a story depth and a 360 degree view for the reader, and I feel that’s what readers love most about her. Even though, this was a lighter novel compared to her normal ones, there was still a touch of depth that only she, as an amazing writer, could provide. I related to Mandy a little too well in my opinion (I’m a military wife whose husband is currently deployed) With that being said, she’s real and so relatable in so many ways, but especially as a mom. I connected instantly. Also, she has an amazing group of people around her; like for real…her support system is crazy good; from her crazy best friend, her parents, to her brother I literally loved them all. Malcolm is someone you’re intrigued with right away and when you get to see more of him throughout the story you really can’t help but fall in love. He pushes Mandy in all the right ways, but he’s careful and patient when she needs it the most.
I loved this book. It was sweet and had just enough steaminess to keep things intriguing, but it is in no way a “hot-alpha-male-sexy-stuff-all-the-time” book, and so if you are looking for something with a lot of depth and a really sweet and swoon worthy hero as well as a completely relatable heroine…then you have found the right book!
