The plot of this book is one I detest more than anything (more than the secret baby, cheating hero or Too-Stupid-To-Live mistress): the One-Night-Stand. For me, there’s nothing remotely romantic about ONS. Bodies are treated like commodities and the story reeks of … uhmm, mercantilism, to use a less harsh word.

And this is what happens in the book.

The minute our hero Michael meets our heroine Lauren for the first time at a social event, he falls in lust with her. But while his body says one thin

Ok, but not one of my favorites from her.
The story wasn't bad, gave it an extra star for the H groveling for about the whole second half of the book.
