Reed Miller was a bad boy to the core. Apparently the guy possessed an anything-goes attitude when it came to sex. He also smoked cigarettes cursed like a sailor, and drove way too fast in that black Camaro of his.

First and foremost, I'd like to say that in my next life, I'd like to come back as a heroine in one of Elle Kennedy's stories because sweet mother of sin do these bitches luck out. What? Don't you judge me dammit! You go and meet Reed and tell me you w

One Night Of Scandal is book two in the After Hours series by Elle Kennedy.

Reed Miller is one of the three owners of the hot night club, Sin, along with his two best friends, Gage and Aj. He has lusted secretly over Aj’s girlfriend Darcy for months, always careful to keep his feelings hidden. He would never do that to his best friend. Darcy was off limits. So why was he seeing her in the club alone and it looked like she was flirting with other guys. He was shocked when she told him that she an

Book 2 in the After Hours series follows Reed and Darcy, who we both met in One Night of Sin. Reed is one of the other co-owners of the club After Hours and Darcy is AJs girlfriend.

Reed has always crushed on Darcy, but has stayed away...bro code and all. But one night out at another club and Reed catches Darcy out with another man. When Reed discovers Darcy and AJ broke-up, he makes his move.

Despite the guilt they both feel about going behind AJs back, they just ca

Confession time. I liked this one a whole lot better than the first. Want to know why?


Here is what got me excited. Dark haired Irish guy with blue eyes! So of course I got some Colin Farrell vibes. His eyes aren't blue, but I know how to use Photoshop. Easy-peasy. And you know what happens next? He talks like this:

Darcy is Reeds best friends ex girlfriend. Hooking up with her would go against the bro code. But can they deny themselves the intense attraction they have for one another?

I almost rated this 3 stars because of Reed. Yea he was a loyal friend and a dirty talker but he was such a wimp and made a dumbass move near the end. But that would have been unfair seeing I enjoyed everything else. Darcy was great, it was scorching hot and the ending was cute.

Short sweet and sexy, just how I like

One Night Of Scandal is the second book in the “After Hours” series by Elle Kennedy.

We meet both Reed and Darcy in the first book in the series One Night Of Sin.

Reed is part owner of Club Sin with his two friends, AJ and Gage. For months he lusted after Darcy, AJ’s girlfriend, but he knows his attraction for Darcy is wrong, that it’s a total violation of bro code.

For the past couple of months, someone had been selling Ecstasy over at "Sin", so Reed is determined to catch the drug dealer no mat

3.5 - Once wasn't going to be enough. Stars.

Book 2 in the After Hours series is as hot and sexy as its predecessor. Reed, along with Gage and A.J are certainly a trio of guys that most girls are going to enjoy reading about, being ex-fighters and running their own nightclub they are all a little dark, mysterious and dangerous, to the casual observer. So it’s a great balance that the women they are falling for offer them the opportunity to step into the light, with their happy-go-lucky personalit

I was excited to read this book after for Gage’s book One Night of Sin. Reed Miller is one of the part owners of “Sin” a nightclub, along with his best friends Gage & AJ,. He's an ex-MMA fighter, and he’s pretty much known to his friends as somewhat of a manwhore..

Darcy Grant is AJ’s ex-girlfriend; and completely out of bounds to Reed. No matter how much he desires her, he couldn’t, and wouldn’t go there…..or would he?

Enjoyable enough for me to finish. Took me ages to get through. I’ll chalk up that this prolly wasn’t my favourite because it was one of the author’s earlier works. Still great writing and great dialogue but the h and the romance just didn’t do it for me.

How'd I go from rating the first book in this series 4 stars, then rating this 2 stars?!?!

We have Darcy (who was introduced in One Night of Sin as Gage's friend AJ's girlfriend, who Gage's other friend, Reed, happened to hate. But turns out, Reed didn't really hate Darcy. In fact, Reed was hella into Darcy, but he acted like a dick because she was his best friend's girl. So when AJ and Darcy mutually decide to break-up one night, and Reed and Darcy run into each other the VERY NEXT NIGHT, thing
3 1/2 stars

So... I liked the book, the chemistry between Reed and Darcy was off the charts, but I still felt bad for AJ - Reed's best friend and Darcy's ex - no matter how cool he (AJ) was with the whole thing. I guess I'm not as "evolved" as him. ;)

Dual-POV, HAE. Can be read as standalone.

PHEWEE. Ms. Kennedy can write some damn good smut, but after all my raving reviews about the Out of Uniform series (because those were some SERIOUSLY hot books), it's no surprise that this series would be comparable.

Reed is the bad boy player of Sin, the night club he owns with his friends. He's known for his one night stands and being against relationships completely. What no one knows, however, is how he's been pining after his best friend's girlfriend

This is now Reed and Darcy's story and what a yummy read!

I admit, it was a little weird, with Darcy being the ex of one of Reed's best friends, like too-close-for-comfort weird. But I thought Ella did just fine giving us the history of Reed's feelings for Darcy which I totally bought. And I thought Ella also did just fine with the chemistry between those 2, hot dang!

Reed, with all his alpha actions is just adorable with his thoughts, and I thought Darcy is a pretty cool chick. Mature actions fr

3 Stars

Reed Miller has always obeyed the golden rule of friendship - never poach another guy's gal. Despite his unabated lust for Darcy Grant, Reed has always kept his distance. But now that Darcy and his best friend, A.J., have called it quits, Reed is finding it virtually impossible to keep his hands to himself. To make matters worse, Darcy is determined to have her way with him even though she has no interest in a relationship with a sweet-talking bad boy like Reed. Can th

I was excited to read the next book in Elle Kennedy’s After Hours series, having fallen hook, line and sinker for Gage from One Night of Sin.

Reed Miller is one of the part owners, along with his best buddies, in the exclusive nightclub, Sin. He is an ex-MMA fighter, and renowned playboy. What better workplace to have to utilise all his talents.

This was definitely my favourite in the “After Hours” series. Elle Kennedy writes such a great romance.

Reed has a thing for Darcy but Darcy is with his best friend, AJ. But when AJ and Darcy break up, Reed is faced with the challenge of staying away from Darcy.

I instantly fell for Reed. He was sexy and take charge. His romance with Darcy was scorching hot! I really felt for him. Because of his past, he had so many issues of self-worth and I think he truly didn’t think he deserved Darcy.

Thank you Netgalley and Entangled Brazen for the free copy. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

It's a matter of principles, really. i'm against the whole dating-my-best-friend's-ex part of the story. I would probably be on board with it, had the said best friend died, or the best friend turns out to be a jerk. I think those two are acceptable reasons for you to get involved with the ex. But you see, neither of those two scenarios happen.

MMA fighter is all I needed to see. I really enjoyed Reed and Darcy’s story. They wanted to have a no strings attached relationship but how often does that work out. Someone or both parties end up catching feelings for the other and it can sometimes turn out bad. In this situation, that was not the case. Their chemistry was very hot. This is the first book of this series that I have read and I am going to go back and read the others.

I'm not sure why I keep reading these short books when I know I probably won't love them but hey, I was still entertained -sort of. What I hate the most is that it feels very shallow and doesn't have a lot of depth. The plot about finding the drug dealer in his club wasn't very interesting or gripping. I didn't believe in the romance either. It was only lust and that's fine. I just didn't care about it lol. So yeah, 2 stars.

Reed has been dying to make a move on Darcy since the moment he first met her but there was always one thing stopping him - the fact she was dating his best friend AJ. No matter how attracted he is to her he would never step over that line and risk breaking his friend's heart. All bets are off now that Darcy is single again though, as hard as he tries Reed just can't resist temptation and the attraction between them is far too hot to walk away from. Reed isn't like the guys Darcy usually dates, ...more

This is the second book in this hot new series by one of the hottest and steamiest authors out there.....

This is the story of Reed and Darcy. Now if you have read the first book (which you better have) then you will be slightly confused as to why this is Reed and Darcy's story since she was with AJ in the first book. Well unconfuse yourself, and settle back for this decadent little ride....
