From bed to baby to...bliss?

A chance encounter. A steamy night together. That's all Rhys Walker signs on for when Charlotte "Charlie" Long sashays across his path. Sure, maybe he catches a glimpse of forever in her eyes. But the brush-off note the gorgeous brunette leaves the next morning says it all, doesn't it? Time to move on.

Rhys never expects that moving on actually m

Another winner by Sarah Mayberry.

Trust Sarah Mayberry to take a plot that has practically been done to death in the world of romance and still give readers a story that is worth remembering. In my eyes, Sarah Mayberry is one of the few authors in the contemporary romance genre who can do no wrong. Each and every single story that I have read from her has always been memorable, and her latest release is no exception to the rule.

This was not my favorite Mayberry mainly because her others have been so good that I had huge expectations and living upto them became impossible, whatever the reason even though I enjoyed this there was a but attached to it.

For a long time I felt nothing happened on the romantic front, though of course it was natural, these two were strangers who now had a baby on the way and getting to know each other and becoming comfortable around each other takes time but I don't know I wanted th

I've been binging on Mayberry's "Super Romance" novels, lately, because they're just so very good—or at least what I'm in the mood for right now. This one is an excellent example of the type. The protagonists generally have some handicap—some large, emotionally devastating event or circumstance that gets in the way of forming a lasting connection with, well, anyone, generally (let alone the other protagonist). You'd think that, in this one, that would be the unexpected pregnancy. Fortunately, no ...more
Just some quick thoughts while I mull my review:

- Loved the characters. The plot may be a Harlequin staple, but the two leads reacted to the events with pitch-perfect realism and honesty. They had weak moments to go with their heroic ones.

- Cleverly written as any Mayberry book. I enjoyed the bit of Chekhov's Gun with that box from her father. Well done.

- I don't know if I enjoyed the romantic conflict, but it suited the heroine's character. I wanted her to be more confident and fucking snap out
More Than One Night
3 Stars

After sharing one night of passion, Rhys Walker and Charlie Long never plan on crossing paths again. However, it soon turns out that their one night stand has some more serious consequences, and Rhys and Charlie will have to get to know one another better and more quickly than they originally thought…

A common enough story about unplanned pregnancy between strangers who then get to know one another and fall in love.

The problem is that Rhys and Charlie’s chemistry is rath
This was such an excellent read. I loved how real the actions and reactions of the characters were. The awkward first meeting between heroine and his family, the uncertain feelings about impending parenthood on both sides, etc. I especially loved the friendship between the heroine and her best friend. It was spot on for a real life friendship. Sadly, we don't see strong female friendships often enough in romance.

THe heroine's lack of self-esteem was sad and started to grate on my nerves toward

Sarah Mayberry writing is marvelous and the depth of characterization is surprisingly multi-layered for HP books. The author can make a worn out and tired plot seems exciting and new. This is true for this story as well. Two people who had one-night stand that resulted in unwanted pregnancy have been done numerous times. But the strength and goodness of characters, the sizzling chemistry, the delightful dialog, the realism of the story set it above many. I especially enjoyed a portrayal of the h ...more

Super quickie review...

I LOVED this one! It's a terrific Harly about an unplanned pregnancy (of course!) but it's not your average, generic Harly. The story was surprisingly sweet and emotional and genuine. I may have teared up at the end, but since there's no photographic evidence, I'll never admit it!

Charlie Long has just entered civilian life after serving in the military for fifteen years. She is a little nervous as the military units she served with she had thought of as family. Her biological family consisted only of an emotionally distant father who is now dead. Her mother died birthing Charlie.

This background has a profound effect on Charlie as we learn in the course of the story. She has never been the recipient of unconditional love and therefore a) doesn't quite know how to receive
Sarah Mayberry is such a breath of fresh air. She's a long, deep sigh for a girl like me. A girl who loves her contemporary romances even if there are no car crashes, bad guys or epic plot twists. The times when I just want engaging characters going through lovely, painful, everyday things in a way that feels like a favorite song. Sarah Mayberry books have done that for me now every single time.

Just re-read this book after TWO YEARS!!
Loved it :D

The plot of this book is soooo good, after I read it back in '12; it kept playing in my head but I couldn't remember the name of the book [I suck with names] and at last someone from GR helped me out by giving me the name so I could re-read it and my mind could be at peace!! :D

Charlotte "Charlie" Long has been a military woman for the past 14 years. On the night of celebration of starting her life as civilian, a chance encounter puts her on the path of Rhys Walker, a gorgeous I.T businessman. It leads to a beautiful one night. But Charlie knows that she is not exactly the type of woman that Rhys associated to, so she walks out on him. Two months later, Charlie finds out that she's pregnant and she feels Rhys has the right to know. Becoming a father is not exactly what ...more

3.5 stars - I actually read this in one night but I'm recording it as the next day because when I finished it was 2.30 a.m. and I was sitting in the dark waiting for my phone to charge enough that it wouldn't die when I needed the alarm in the morning and also I was tearing up badly for no reason. it's cool! i'm fine. i'm cool.

liked this a whole lot. I wish it'd been better developed - the last chapter being 2-3 times the length of the average chapter in the book is a little bit of a warning sig
Wow. This was a great book. Normally when I read category romances, I can predict what the characters will do or say next as the plot moves along. Not so with this book. It was as if author threw away the Category Romance Decision Maker 2.0 Flow Chart and had the characters act like honest to goodness real people: flawed but doing the best they can and acting NORMAL. For example, when Charlie discovers she's pregnant, I was jumping ahead to how she was going to keep it secret from Rhys and what ...more
Good book. I really liked both Rhys and Charlie. I felt so bad for Charlie through most of the book. Her self-esteem was so low when it came to her personal life that she just couldn't see that someone like Rhys could truly be interested in her. When she found that she was pregnant, she knew she had to tell him. Once Rhys got over his initial shock and anger, he knew that he and Charlie had to learn to deal together for the sake of the baby. As they spent time together, getting to know each othe ...more
So a little bit ago, I started thinking I'd like to see what Sarah Mayberry did with an accidental pregnancy romance. Soon I discovered that not only had she written one, it was one I'd picked up for a $1 at Half-Price Books!

Sadly, though, I didn't think it worked very well at all. The pacing was kind of off. I didn't really feel like the romance was earned. And the thing is, I really related to Charlie, that feeling of not being lovable, that men especially aren't interested in you. And there w

I appreciate Sarah Mayberry's ability to craft relatable, sympathetic characters without a lot of manufactured drama. She writes about regular people dealing with every day situations, and that is refreshing. In this book, Charlie is a heartbreakingly earnest woman at a crossroads: she never knew her mother, her emotionally distant father has just died, and she has just left military service after more than a decade and is embarking on life as a civilian in a new city. My frustration with Charli ...more
Eh. This was mostly fine, but it just wasn't anywhere near as good as the other books I've read by Sarah Mayberry. I was ready to give it 3.5 stars until the public proposal though. I realize that's my projecting my own preferences, but . . . public proposals are a no for me. I don't like to read about them, unless I'm given very, very strong reasoning to assume that the main characters would want them. And even then probably not.

This was a really good contemporary romance. There were a few times that Charlie annoyed me in how she treated Rhys, but in the end I could understand why her character would act that way. Overall, I enjoyed the story. The surprise pregnancy plot was done well and I liked the evolution of their relationship.

I don't generally like one-night-stand stories, but I loved this one. Sarah Mayberry has become an autobuy author for me, and I'm persuaded that she could take any of my taboo tropes and plots and make me enjoy every moment.
Melanie (Moviemavengal)
Predictable plot, but enjoyable as all Sarah Mayberry's are. Nice twist that it's the heroine who's just out of the army, and I always love the Australian settings of her books.

Eh, what can I say? I finished it?
It wasn't horrible or anything, but hardly very interesting either.
Charlie Long had just finished a career in the Army and began her civilian life with a celebratory dinner and drinks with her best friend. Used to trying to blend in with her fellow man, her best friend helped Charlie enhance her feminine assets with makeup and clothes, something so foreign to her that she didn't believe she had what it took to attract a man's attention. This type of thought pattern is an insight to Charlie and we begin to see how she truly views herself. At first, I thought it ...more

This is the first book from Sarah Mayberry that let me down a little, very unexpected, but i just waited to finish it because i couldn't take it anymore...

The story starts really promising, very well, captivating, everything goes smoothly up until after the bomb of the pregnancy fell. Charlie feel like a multi-personality character from my point of view, i get the drama of her childhood and the emotions or better said, lack of emotions, but i believe things were taken to extreme. She's either ho

Dear Ms. Mayberry,

It’s always a delight to read your books. Your characters are interesting, multifaceted, (reasonably) ordinary men and women; your plots are touching without being tawdry; your love stories convincing and sexy. More Than One Night isn’t my favorite of your books—I had trouble with the heroine—but was an enjoyable novel and one I’d recommend to any contemporary romance reader.

“He pulled her close and kissed her the way he’d been wanting to for weeks. There was the smallest of hesitations then she kissed him back, her body straining toward his almost desperately. She tasted of salty tears and need and he tightened his arms around her, wanting to take away the pain he’d caused her, needing to make things right between them.” 3 likes
“He leaned closer and she swallowed the rest of her words as he pressed a kiss to her lips. He lifted his head slightly and looked into her eyes. She stared back at him, stunned, her heart thudding against her breastbone. He palmed the nape of her neck, and then he was kissing her again, his tongue sweeping into her mouth this time, turning her legs to jelly.
She pressed her body against his, her skin on fire, desire beating a tattoo through her veins. His tongue stroked hers gently, provocatively, and she reached out and gripped his shoulders with both hands.
After a long, long moment he drew back. “Come home with me?” he asked very quietly, his voice a low husk.
Dear God, I thought you’d never ask.”
