About Last Night… is a book that I could not put down once I started it. It is a bit predictable and even a tad cliched, but for me, the enjoyment factor was off the charts so I gave it a full 5 stars. I don’t know what it is about this book, I just had so much fun reading it. I was smiling and laughing and completely falling in love with Mia and Quinn’s story.

Mia has had a long time crush on her brother's best friend Matt, who is a male escort. When Mia moves back into town, she decides to contact Matt through his agency to set up a "date" with him. She is a 27 yr old virgin, (eyeroll, who acts like she's 14) and wants Matt to be the one to pop her cherry. She doesn't want to meet him in person before this date, so they start a friendship through texts and e-mails.

This book, OMG, I loved it!! Brother’s best friend books are my absolute favorite and this little sexy number is going down as one of my favorites yet!

We first meet Mia. She is back home from school and ready to really begin living her life. Her whole life she has struggled with self-esteem and body issues. She has worked hard to get healthy and feel better about herself, but she still feels awkward and shy around men. She decides to hire an escort to help her overcome her insecurities with men,

I have truly enjoyed this author’s other works and I didn’t find fault with the writing, enjoyed the dual povs, but the storyline had just too many aspects that I couldn’t get past.

The heroine acts like she was 18-23 years old when in actually she is a 27 year old grown ass woman!


The hero is an escort who’s every client is a hot lay and we are treated to what the hero and author deemed hot sex scenes with most of his clients.

Quinn and Maya .. ♥

It might turn out that
she doesn't want me in the long run.
But I'm trying to be
everything she deserves.


With every additional moment,
I fell deeper and harder for Matt Quinn.
How dare he make me love him?
It was almost cruel.

So I love Belle Aurora work. I don't give it much thought when asked about my favorite authors because this remarkable one POPS in my mind. I was ECSTATIC for this read! She did NOT disappoint

My Views : Overall this one was a nice, sweet read which I enjoyed to quite an extent. To be honest there were time when this book was too slow for my liking. I must say that I loved the side stories (Nick & Addison and Bill and Terry) better than the main story. description

Style of writing : Belle Aurora is an amazing writer, her writing is fluent, funny and she always deliver a page-turner but for me she missed her mark with this one.description

I must admit I do enjoy BAs writing style and the storyline had great potential. But overall this book was not for me. I found Mia very immature for a 27 year old. Quinn was a nice enough character but why oh why was there so many detailed scenes of (view spoiler)?!! I did like it enough to finish it though but there was too many eye roll moments for me to rate any higher.

I decided to put this one on-hold. Sadly, for some reasons it just doesn't tick my boxes. It's probably just me and my bad mood talking. Ygh. I hate that my reading is ruined because of my stupid issues :( When will I get m mojo back?

I’m a bit up and down when it comes to this author. Some of her work I really love, and some of it I really struggle with. This book seems to reflect that perfectly because I did enjoy this one, but I had a lot of issues as well. But if you’re in the mood for a light, funny and smutty feel-good book, and are able to overlook some ridiculous, it just may be the book for you!

Going by all the reviews it looks like I'm in for one hell of a scorching hot read!! Brothers best friend this is my guilty weakness, I LOVER THESE kind of books!! And coming from this author I know it's going to be epic!! A beautiful heartfelt romance..

Quinn - Harry Bridgeton ha

Okay this is gonna be short since some reviewers already shared their feeling because mine isn't far different. I'm love with Belle Aurora since RAW (Yay for Twitch). I was hoping for another book with dark romance. When I heard that she finished About Last Night... I didn't expect that much.

The story about Mia; 27 yo girl who is a virgin and VERY RARELY interact with man beside her brother, Harry. She hire an escourt, Quinn who happened to be his brother's best friend. She trust Quinn t

The Hero loved to eat p**** of his clients and went down on one with details and after 20 min called heroine like nothing happened? Like his face was not between another's women legs?
Oh and to decide to lose your virginity to an escort male is the worst choice ever!

I hate that I'm giving such a low rating to one of my favorite authors but I just couldn't get into this one.

Matt Quinn is an escort living his life free and easy and in a mass supply of pussy. Mia is a shy twenty-seven year old virgin who is on a mission to finally lose her virginity. Her plan is to hire an escort, but not just any escort, she wants her older brothers best friend to be the one.

I could not stand Mia! She was the typical shy little virgin girl who apparently missed sex

"Quack for me, baby."
I floved About Last Night! After reading the synopsis, of course I knew that Quinn's mystery client was his best friend's baby sister, but he didn't. How fun it was waiting for him to find out. And hey, I got a front row seat at a few of his 'appointments'. All I'm gonna say is that I now understand why he was booked up months in advance...fanning self. Mia was a sweet shy girl, at least until Quinn got a hold of her and dirtied her up. To make her feel more comfortable befo

What I liked:
- good pace
- likeable heroine and hero
- hot sex scenes

What didn't work for me was the fact that it did seem to drag on..
Mia was a tad bid childish, though she was likable, she was immature.
27 virgin, that has not masturbated? A bit unbelievable?
You're on a budget about clothes, but you have two thousand dollars to blow on an hour for a prostitute?

I love male escort books and can not tell you how many I have read. I know what a male escort does with his clients, but I do not need details once the heroine is introduced. In ABOUT LAST NIGHT, the hero gave details about which client was hot and great at making him come. Even how their "smell" turned him on. I think that was the 50 year old client, not sure. There were so many clients that turned him on, I could not keep them straight. Then there was detailed description of the intercourse wh ...more

2.5 stars...I'll admit I'm a pretty big fan of the "best friend's brother" storyline, it's usually a guaranteed great read for me. Unfortunately I felt like "About Last Night" was just ok. I think it just took too long for things to get going, the MCs spent the first 50% only communicating through email/text. At first I thought it was kinda cute but it started to annoy me after a while, I started to skim to when they finally meet! Then when they finally do was pretty anti-climat ...more

YAY!! This was exactly the book that I was looking for to dig me out of the book hole I was slowly slipping into. I absolutely loved this sweet, sexy, (and what I would call) romantic comedy that just screamed Belle Aurora with her incredible humour.

I loved this book! This was funny, sexy, sweet, and had an epic romance all in one. Quinn is an escort and he is damn good at his job. He knows how to make women feel special and he loves women - all women. He knows how to appreciate and pleasure them. Mia is Quinn's best friends little sister. He only met her once and doesn't remember her much but Mia remembers him - he was the first man to make her feel special. She was overweight and self-conscience but Quinn made her feel beautiful.

Mia needs a change. she's in her mid twenties and she's in a rut. Oh, and did I mention that she's also a virgin? She's had a couple of fumbling attempts to lose her V- card but nothing has panned out. But she has a plan. Two years ago, her brother Harry (the two of them are as close as siblings can get) let it slip over Christmas cocktails that his best friend Matt Quinn was busy servicing one of his dates. Her curiosity piqued, it didn't take long for Mia to track down all t

Belle Aurora is one of my absolute favorite authors because she easily weaves wit, sass, steam, and angst together in her storylines, creating entertaining and enticing reads, and her newest release, About Last Night... continues to showcase her talented writing.

I loved Mia/Maya from the start. She's a heroine a lot of readers will be able to identify with...she's quirky and innocent. She's shy and doesn't really know how to talk to guys. But she's also intelligent and independent; she wants to
