When Gwen Thomas reaches her 31st birthday, she sees she really hasn’t done anything truly daring in her life. She decides to go all out and changes from a shy quiet librarian to a vixen for one night, but when she meets with Ethan Banks that one night will change her life forever

In the mood for an over the top, sexy and fast paced romance? When The Lights Go Down by Heidi Betts hits the spot with her very loveable leads and the unexpected love that hits them.
Gwen Thomas wakes up on her 31st
I so cannot relate with the heroine. She felt crappy for being a virgin at the age of 31 so she decided to jump the first guy she met at the nightclub. Then she was embarrassed to tell Ethan that she was a librarian so she lied about her job too. If she felt so out of his league then she shouldn't have gone home with him in the first place..
The story just bothered me a lot, and not in a good way. So 1 star only..
