Denise ~The Procrastinating Book Diva~
The goods were here for a great One Night Stand - Mark was gorgeous in an arrogant way that actually worked, Julie was innocently sexy, and their chemistry was palpable - but it just never came together. The reasons both of them sought out Madame Evangeline's services were absolutely absurd, even for erotic fiction!! A playboy who has his pick of women to sleep with is cornered and dared by his buddies and a virgin who is "inconvenienced and embarrassed by her hymen" ( I could not have made this ...more

I swear. I should know better than to read these novellas and expect the HEA that I want! Damn it. If you've EVER read any of my reviews, you know that more often than not I need that confirmation that everything all worked out. Even though I know they got their happily ever after - I need PROOF!! I need it spelled out for me in black and white. I can't just be expected to use my own imagination to picture how everything plays out AFTER the last page! I mean - I'm the READER!

My reading slump continued last week with The Virgin and the Playboy by Kate Richards. This was a quick read, but the premise was so ridiculous, the book crashed and burned for me. In theory (it's bad when I start a sentence that way), this had potential to be a good concept for a story. A woman (Julie) tired of still being a virgin decides to hire a company to de-flower her. The company doesn't actually de-flower her, an escort sent by the company is supposed to de-flower her. (Of course the co ...more

Okay, not as good as I was expected. Very cliche, the heroine's pretty much dumb-in-disguise kind of inncent and the Hero.. Jesus.

No comment at this moment please try again later.

This book should come with a warning -- cold shower needed after reading! Hawt? You betcha! And Kate's descriptive writing is 100% the reason for how hot this book is. This definitely comes under the hot-little-quickie-that-will-have-you-quivering genre!

It's a nice short story.

Telling about Julia who had waiting so long to lose her virginity and use a 1NightStand service to help her.

The books is great, how could she pretend that she had experience but her motion told she hadn't?

I always laugh in that part.

Did the heroines have to be virgins? Really? I ask you?

It's like this. I found a promo email from Decadent Publishing about the latest 1Night Stand titles while I was in the airport last week, and The Virgin and the Best Man looked irresistible. Well, my resistance was down. Waking up at 5 am to catch a plane will do that to me.

The 1Night Stand series is a not-so-secret vice, and the heroine is a librarian. (But still, virgin? Never mind.) As the sequel to

My Thoughts:

A very well written short story. I usually don’t like when there’s only few pages on a book but this one was a bit addictive and I was actually looking forward to the end and to find out if they were going to be together. Crazy right?

This was a good surprise. Julie wanted to have what every other girl does, a normal sexual life the only problem for her is her virginity. So she hires a company specialized in dates as the said 1 Night

Mark is a normal guy who dates a lot, and

This my second novella from this author, and I have to say I'm not impressed. It's like she was in such a hurry to get to the end that she forgot to add any character development. The MCs fell flat and honestly had no chemistry. The playboy is cocky, signed up for a 1NS for an unbelievable reason, and really should know how to talk dirty. I'm not sure if it is just the author or if she meant him to sound stilted and oddly formal. The virgin seemed to just zone out and give just as equally ridicu ...more

I liked this story a lot. It was short, sweet and super spicy!!

When Mark and Julia meet the sparks fly and the chemistry is hot. Mark is not used to being with a woman like Julia and is taken with her from the start. Julia is nervous but determi

If I had to use just one word to describe this tale it would be YUMMY. The interaction between Mark and Julia is electrifying. I could practically taste the sexual tension that was building between the two characters. The sex itself was hot enough that my eBook reader pretty much fogged up with all the steam these two were giving off. The way the story ends allowed me to see that while it could have been just a one night stand tale without any emotions, Ms. Richards made it far more than that.

I had been reading stories from this series as I found them before I realized there was an order. Basically, I am late to the game on this one. What a fun and enjoyable contemporary read. Once again, Madame Eve weaves her magic and connects two people who would have never found each other on their own. The characters were easy to like and their chemistry together was sizzling. I absolutely loved the last paragraph. It really showed the spirit of this series, which is so much more than a 1 night ...more

Julia came off as sweet from the get go. I actually felt bad for her for being so innocent. Which sounds strange but the longer you go with your "V Card" the more difficult it can become (sometimes).
I loved how aw struck Mark was with Julia. Being coughs off guard made him likable. I normally don't like player types in stories cause it usually leads to infidelity which makes the guys a jerk and the girls weak or a door mat.
Their connection wasn't as developed as I would've liked and I wanted t

I loved this book but it was way too short. 79 pages are definitely not enough. The ending is very abrupt and left me wanting more and hoping for a sequel but finding nothing was very disappointing. The chemistry between Julia and Mark is off the charts HOT! Mark was a very gentle and caring teacher. Julia was sweet and innocent but a fast learner and left him wishing for and wanting more. I recommend this book to everyone if you're looking for a good sweet sensual sexy

This was an Awesome read for a short story. This story is about a virgin who is ready to do the deed and get it over with. This way she can join the rest of her friends who have a sexually active life. She hires a 1night stand service and asks for a play boy to do the deed with. Mark is doing this because of a bet with friends and signs up to do this one night stand with a woman who doesn't know him. His friends thinks he will chicken out.

I thought the characters were very real and delightful. I love that a jaded playboy can be taken down by a delightful, real woman.

And, it does happen in real life, as well. How many times do we see Hollywood stars marry ordinary, plain people, after all. And, they are usually the ones who last!

And loved the end.

All around love for this book.

WOW!! I wish I could have lost my virginity that way!! I don't want to spoil the story, so it makes the 1NS series difficult to write a semi-decent review for.

If you want a steamy read, then read them!! ALL of them!!
