I really enjoyed the premise in this one and the execution but felt it ended too abruptly. It was sorely in need of an epilogue but still made for an enjoyable read.

Here's your plot:

Sloane Redding is the shy one, the timid one. The morning of her wedding, she's dumped by the man she'd thought she'd spend the rest of her life with. Humiliated, she turns tail and runs, leaving Nowhere, Alabama for a job in the city. Sloane sets out to remake herself. She succeeds...on the outside. On the inside? D

Sloane hooks up with a guy the night before her brother’s wedding while she is on a mission to get back at her cheating ex. Boone is just trying to get through the night and maybe find a little fun.

Neither expected the night to turn out the way it did. A defiled virgin and (view spoiler) send these two on a new path.

Okay, so here’s the rub. I liked Virgins Night Out until Sloane straight up lies and claims she didn’t. It was/is a shitty thing to do to anyone. Th

Sloane is going back to her hometown for her brother's wedding and like any woman who was left standing at the altar alone on her wedding day, she is going in guns blazing dressed to impress.

This guy's hot, hot, hot


This is a quick one before work. Great story, really great. Basically, heroine Sloane and hero Bane have a one night stand without names, and he ends up as best man at her brother's wedding. Things go from there that involve an oops condom, a pregnancy, a kidnapping, some amnesia and then a happy ending. You might be thinking, angst, drama, and no thank you. Wipe that thought right out of your head. It's good. Really.

3.5 stars

I really enjoy Shiloh Walker’s writing. I’ve been impressed by her storytelling with every book I’ve read that she’s written. (By god, she knows how to write the dark stuff. I’ll be reviewing Darker Than Desire, the latest in the Secrets & Shadows series next month.)

I picked up this book thinking it was going to be a light, steamy read. It starts that way. Sloan Redding is back in town with something to prove. Having been jilted at the altar, Sloan left for the big city. She

The first half of this short book was 5 stars - hot and sexy with a brothers best friend storyline. I liked the romance Sloane and Boone (hate that name!) were hot together and had really great chemistry. The second half of this story went in a different direction and I wasn't expecting it. I still enjoyed the second half of the book but felt it was more 4 stars instead of 5. Plus, Sloane does something that I just can't agree with and it really changed my opinion of her.

The Virgin's Night Out: 4 stars (if I could rate higher, I would!)
What an incredibly sweet and sexy story this was!
I absolutely love Shiloh Walker's style of writing. Her stories are always sexy and sweet with characters you just can't help but love and root for. In this story, I myself found that I cried a lot! There is a lot of back story to both Boone and Sloan that shape who they are in the present and their decision

THE VIRGIN’S NIGHT OUT contains two novellas. My overall rating is listed above but I’ll break down in my review below.


Caught me from the beginning. Sloane Redding was shy and maybe a little mousy. She got left at the altar (or the day of her wedding) and ran away from her small town from the humiliation. Now she’s back for her brother’s wedding and she wants to have a good time, throw caution to the wind. And she sets out to do just that whe

Sloane is taking a night off at the local water hole the night before her brothers wedding, when a run-in with her awful ex turns into a gorgeous hunk coming to her aid. What was supposed to be just a one-night turns into something more, until Boone has to leave for another secret mission. Miss-communication leads to a break up that shouldn´t have been, but then disaster strikes. What happens now?
Fast paced read, contemporary romance, emotions and smutty fluff in a great combo.

Sloane was dumped the day before her wedding six months ago and fled her tiny town of Nowhere, Alabama (population 1941) to lick her wounds and get over the betrayal. She returns for her brother’s wedding, and on the night before, dresses to impress and heads over to the town’s only bar to show them all she’s changed and moved on. What she doesn’t expect is DB “Boone” Cassidy. He’s there for the wedding and soon after sparks fly, things go awry and somewhere along the way there’s romance. Kinda. ...more

My Review:
This was an excellent book that I had a hard time putting down once I began reading it. If you have ever read Shiloh Walker, then you know that she writes with some real angst and emotion to her characters. I wasn't sure what to expect with this book because it looks much more light-hearted than her normal fare. Despite all appearances, this book is that same high quality angst and emotion that Walker writes in her other books.

Sloane has had a rough time in the romance department. Her

This story didn't really work for me :( Will review it later on.

This is my 4th book by Shiloh Walker and while I quite enjoyed all the previous ones, this was a great disappointment for me.

It's a novella-length story which started promising with a revenge one-night stand between strangers but things quickly went downhill for me. The blurb doesn't really reveal much of the actual story so I'll try to keep my review spoiler-free which will inevitably make it a bit vague.

Sloane is dumped the morning of her wedding and is devastated. She leaves town and comes back for her brother’s wedding. She comes back to town with the intent to prove something, to herself and her ex-fiancée

After putting her ex-finance down at the local bar (as in punching him in the face), Sloan finds herself the focus of a super hawt man’s attention. They end up having a steaming one night stand where they do not exchange nam

The story of Sloane Redding and D.B. "Boone" Cassidy Jr., is complicated. He is her brothers best friend. They love him like a brother as well.

Sloane was sick of feeling sorry for herself and going home for her brother Taylor's wedding made her feel a little off. She decided a drink was in order for courage. She met a stranger at the bar who helped defend her from her ex-fiance who left her at the altar.

Boone was bored with the women throwing themselves at him in the bar. He was fascinated by t

Seemed shorter than 200 pages on my ereader, but in any case it was quick yet good read. We start out with Sloane post breakup, almost being left at the altar, by her ex. He accused her basically of being wimpy. She changed her outlook and her physical looks, and is back in town for her brother's wedding. She expects to see her ex and make him regret giving her up. She does see him, and gets that closure and then some. She also meets and is instantly attracted to a stranger (at least she thinks) ...more

Sloane Redding was supposed to have been married six months before on Valentine's Day to Rodney, but he backed out. Boone "DB" Cassidy's two best friends were twin brothers Pierce and Taylor Redding, whom also happen to be Sloane's brothers. All three had been working for DDX Security Specialists. Pierce had been killed on a mission. After that, Taylor quit. Now Taylor is getting married and even though he doesn't want to attend

A night of firsts, sexy red dress, drooling ex flatterned, anonymous sex, handing over v-card, knocked up. Then comes the twist that keeps the pages turning.

Beautiful story!
Loved the different play of emotions at the end.

Ugh! I don’t know how to write a good enough review for it without a bunch of spoilers, so just read it & love it!

Slight spoilers: I especially loved how Boone didn’t run away from Sloane after finding out who she was (at the wedding)

Only complaints:
1- After Boone starts to remember everything, there’s no talking about his capture. Not to his boss, Tyler or Sloane. I know the story was about them, but for such a big part of the s

I won't recap the storyline, since that's easily available. I'll just say that I REALLY liked this book!

It was very well-written, as I always expect from Shiloh Walker. I did get a little confused after Boone went away and was suddenly being referred to by a different name, but it didn't take long to figure out it was the same guy. Also, it turned a little darker than I expected while he was away - not necessarily a bad thing, just unexpected. (Truth: Never judge a book by its cover.) Overall, I

Reviewed for NetGalley:

I liked the main story okay. I did not care for the main character a ton. I know that she is hurt and just trying to protect herself, but that was cruel. I was interested in the hero's story a lot more. His story was incredibly interesting. In fact, that made me want to look into the rest of this series.

Bonus Story. The bonus story was FANTASTIC. I really enjoyed that story. I want there to be more in that series. The characters were very intriguing.

I found this one very sweet and heart breaking. Sloane was an interesting character. I loved the chance she took with Boone, but also loved how she talked with Boone about the potential "problem" because it wasn't a problem.

But with that being said, I liked that Sloane was there for Boone when he needed someone, was glad that she didn't talk around things, owned up to her secret and finally when she told Boone she wanted the same as him, everything,

Sloane puts on her sexiest outfit and heads out to the local hang out with hopes of giving her ex an eyeful of what he is missing out on.
