Elle Kennedy:

One Night Of Trouble is book three in the After Hours series by Elle Kennedy. This book concentrates on AJ, the third partner of the three owners of the club, Sin, and the woman that showed him that it’s okay to be bad.


AJ has always been known as ‘Mr. Nice Guy.’ He makes sure everyone around him is happy. He always chooses women to date that his parents would approve of and he never, ever has a one night stand. AJ is used to women coming on to him at the club and some of them are beautiful, but

For this one night, he could drop the good-guy mask and act on the primal urges he'd been fighting his entire life.

Well, well, well Miss Kennedy. Seems you've been holding out on me with AJ and you managed to save the best for last. In the previous two books AJ has always come off as the safe, unassuming, and tamer of his 2 partners. Always the reasonable one and almost...dare I say...boring? Well, still waters run deep, my friends. Because all

AJ Walsh has always been the good guy – the good son, the good friend and of course the good perfect boyfriend. No one knows about AJ bad boy side. When he meets a gorgeous tattooed woman in his bar, his inner bad boy suddenly appears and he wants for the first time to have a one night stand.

“I’m asking if I can take you home and screw your brains out.”

Brett Conlon used to be wild. Her dream is to run her family newest tattoo parlor, but first she needs to change. All she wants is to

Honestly I was bit worried about this one. From what we know in book 2, AJ was suppose to be a boring nice guy. Initially I did feel a bit disconnected with him. The insta lust sure didn't help either.

At first the sexy time kept it going and then next thing I know I couldn't stop reading and was finished in a few hours. I really liked Brett as the heroine. AJ (aww) he grew on me, it was a nice change the hero wasnt a manwhore. One particular scene I'm still laughing at. Enjoyable

4 - "You're one of a kind, AJ." Stars!

Elle Kennedy delivers again; I absolutely loved AJ and Brett. A closet dirty boy and an openly sassy girl, clashing and pushing each other’s limits in every way possible, makes for an extremely entertaining read.

Book three in the After Hours series is a definite improvement on its predecessor, Brett offered a refreshing twist to the usual tropes in that she was the tattooed, tattooist bad-ass in direct contrast to AJ’s wholesome boy next door persona. But n

I loved it... ;)

Brett & AJ...a most unlikely couple!
Brett a Tattoo Artist meets AJ bar tending at his own Club "Sin"... there is an intense attraction between these two, one night of Smokin hot sex, multiple organisms...and neither of them wants it to end...
AJ can be himself with Brett...but will their different backgrounds cause problems between them, clearly opposites do attract!!..

AJ and Brett are completely different from one another, and one night of unbridled passion turns into something neither of them has ever experienced before....the opportunity to just be themselves.

We have AJ, who on the surface is a genuinely a good guy. He's gentlemanly, kind, considerate, a devoted son, and a great friend. But theres definitely a darker, wilder side dying to get loose.

Brett has lived on the wild side and is now in a place where her past behavi

I really liked the first two books in this series and was really looking forward to reading AJ’s story. This book did not disappoint.

AJ has been living his life acting the way he thinks is expected of him while plagued with a misplaced guilt from his childhood. He meets Brett and is able to let his true personality come out and reveal a bit of his inner “bad” boy. Brett is suffering from the opposite issue. Previous bad decisions in men have made her appear irresponsible in her family’s eyes and

AJ Walsh has so far been a fairly quiet co owner of the BDSM club, Sin. We were introduced to him during One Night of Scandal, when he had been Darcy’s love interest. All we had learnt about him was that he was the picture postcard “good” guy, who didn’t appear to be edgy enough for Darcy.

Oh AJ, AJ, AJ...

I gotta say I was a lil worried reading the first few pages because AJ has always been painted the boy-next-door good guy who does everything right and and is perfect on paper, and for me to see his "wild" side was quite a leap in my head and I even wondered if it's really necessary since I thought there is nothing wrong with boy-next-door type anyway in the first place. So I'm glad I just kept reading 'cause I then I saw what AJ's "wild" side is and is it scrumptious or what! LO

4.5 Stars

All round nice guy, AJ Walsh, is tired of maintaining his Mr. Perfect persona, and wants nothing more than to unleash his wild side by indulging in a one-night stand with the gorgeous, tattooed pixie who just walked through the door of his club. While Brett Conlon is attempting to overcome her wild girl reputation, she is willing to allow AJ to play bad boy with her on the condition that he be the perfect pretend boyfriend with her family.

I really enjoyed the first two books in Elle Kennedy's After Hours series but I had a feeling all along that AJ may end up being my favourite. You know that saying "it's always the quiet ones"? Well that sums up AJ perfectly and this nice guy is the hottest hero of the series! The first two stories were hot but AJ practically melted my kindle and his connection with Brett is nothing less than scorching.

Last book of the series.

One Night of Trouble is about Aj's love life. Heck yeah. Now he's the third owner of Sin and best friends with both Reed and Gage. I was a bit hesitant to dive into his book because the second book made me think he was a boring lover. However, I wanted him to redeem himself in this one.. so I ended up diving into it right after finishing the second audio.

AJ is kind of the good guy of the bunch. He is all about everyone else being happy first - which is okay but a bit bori

I really liked AJ and Brett's story. It was good, hot and steamy. I enjoyed seeing the wild and naughty side of AJ. In the previous book, One night of Scandal, AJ came across as too nice, boring and predictable. Apparently AJ had a lot of passion bubbling under the surface and just needed the right girl to set him off. Enter Brett, a sexy wild child trying to be good. Brett is a tattooist who has a colorful past and is trying to calm down and earn the respect of her family. Brett and AJ are comb ...more

AJ wants to break out of his nice-guy persona, so he hooks up with tatted goth girl Brett (seriously) for no-strings, not-so-nice-guy sex. Except the sex is pretty dull and vanilla, which makes me feel sorry for his previous girlfriends.

At one stage Brett tied AJ up during sex, and he was worried after that his workmates would see the marks on his wrists and realise how 'kinky' he was. Like I said, harmless.

This book tried so hard to be something it wasn't - hot.

I liked this one, but not as much as the first two in this series. Still a fun trilogy. Wasn't a big fan of AJ's parent issues and stuff.

Whew boy! One Night of Trouble was wickedly steamy and just an all around fun time.

Hell if he knows why she's so mad at him but he's gonna find out and then fuck her silly. Brett? She may be pissed at him but, yeah, she's on board wi

Three books in and the good guy, AJ Walsh gets his chance at a happy ending. Straitlaced, boy-next-door, AJ is trying to maintain this façade by being the noble, knight in shining armor. But underneath it all is a guy with a wild streak that comes out to play when he meets Brett Conlon. She may be short, but she sure was feisty. Brett herself is turning over a new lead. She's going on the straight and narrow path and is avoiding all bad decisions like a plague. So when AJ enters her orbit, she f ...more

They say the quiet ones are the worst and A.J Walsh has been fairly quiet in our previous outings in Elle Kennedy's After Hours series. Taking a leaf out of Gage's book, he wastes no time when his head is turned in his club by small but feisty Brett Conlon and the time has come for him to throw caution to the wind and enter the realm of the one night stand...

One Night of Trouble sees the tables being turned a little; we have a clean cut, good boy and a tattooed bad girl and if ever there were a

Back in After Hours, sexual tension is brewing between two friends. AJ Walsh finally gets his book and I think it might be my favorite yet!

As the people person, AJ not only popular with the ladies but it also mans the bar very well on his work nights. But an unexpected occurrence happens when Brent Conlon returns to the picture. Their chemistry is combustible, throwing both of them into some kind of primal heat. As expected, Kennedy wastes no time getting to the good parts. Each scene is wro

I had been so excited to read about AJ's story because he's the different one among the bunch, but this book wasn't anything I expected to be. In fact, it was BETTER than I expected.

If you've read the previous books or my previous reviews, you'd definitely understand that AJ is the different one among the bunch, and he's definitely not someone you'd expect to be a night club owner. I mean, you know how most guys are; dark, brood

AJ Walsh is the nice guy… he dates the girl next door, the homecoming queens and the cheerleaders. He buys flowers and opens doors and he certainly doesn’t have one-night stands.

Brett Conlon is the reckless wild girl trying to change her ways. Covered in tattoo’s and a tattoo artist herself, she’s trying to convince her father that she’s ready to run the family business.

AJ and Brett come up with a plan… AJ can explore his sexual wild side with Brett and Brett can show her family she’s

Just a quick & short review as I JUST finished this one. I didn't read this series in order mostly because I didn't really know what to expect from it as this one seemed like your typical Brazen book. I have to say that I am very impressed. In typical Elle Kennedy fashion this book was an amazing mix of solid--and most importantly likeable--characters, a classic storyline with more depth than you usually see and some seriously steamy scenes.

I really liked Brett (the female lead) in the book and
