Sebastian –

I live a good life. I'm successful, the CEO of the advertising firm my father built from the ground up. I've been deemed a god in the sheets by the female population of New York City and have the equipment to match. Life is great.

Until my social life messes with my professional life. I've become a frequent flyer on the gossip pages—a detriment to business. Just as my perfect life is starting to crash down around me, I meet her.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
One Taste by TE Black and KA Berg starts The One Series and the story of Sebastian and Devin.
Devin has return to town to taken a job that leads her to Sebastian. Sebastian is taking over the company after his father's heart attack, but his sister feels he needs to clean up his social life.
Feelings are sparking between Devin and Sebastian and their story will go over a few more books before we get to their end.

Let’s not beat around the bush, shall we? If you’re looking for a man to blow your tonsils out, then look no further than Sebastian Brooks! *snorts* Whaaa? Just keeping it real.

The CEO of Midtown Advertising is supremely confident in his skills between the sheets, and a horde (too much?) of thoroughly satisfied women can attest to this fact *smirks* Satisfaction guaranteed - as they say...

Only Little (or not so little - if know what I mean? *winks*) Sebby has got Big Sebby into a bit of a bind

Short, dirty and too the point. Sebastian is in trouble for being the ultimate playboy. I love short stories like this that pack as much heat and story as most full length novels.

3.5 Stars

This is a short story that felt way too predictable and left you with a cliffhanger.

Sebastian is a major tool

And not in a hot way. He keeps bragging about his "nine-inch cock," mentioning the inches, and how it's a cock that's "made for porn." Not even just to himself, but out loud to other people. That's not being charmingly arrogant or cocky, that's being a douche. In my experience, anybody with a big dick worth fucking doesn't need to brag about it that much. The "big dick energy" that everybody talks about is in a man's air, his demeanor, his confidence. It's not incessantl

Crap it ends on a cliff hanger!! Crap it Crap Crap! It ends on a cliffhanger!
This might be the hottest instant chemistry that I have read in a long time. Instant chemistry is one of my favorite tropes and add in the office setting and I am all in!!
We are in for a long road with playboy Sebastian Brooks and his less than stellar reputation. But I love it. He is hot and determined. He knows what he wants. He has been preparing his whole life to take over his families advertising business. His pl

One Taste was a super sexy story, with a side of twists that has me dying for more already. It's the beginning story of the bad boy, Sabastian Brooks, who is such a huge playboy, that his twin sister decides they need to have a temporary CEO of the advertising firm that their dad built, while he fixes his image. And that's all that I really need to describe about this short story, full of sexy fun. See, he just can't stay out of trouble, which is kind of hilarious on one hand, but on the other, ...more

~ He may well have met his match! ~

Sebastian Brooks had been running his father’s company since his retirement, but a major heart attack a mere three months ago has both he, his twin sister Madison and their mother on pins and needles to keep him free of stress. But when his sister frankly informs Sebastian that their business, Midtown Advertising, is loosing clients due to negative press attention after being constantly caught being wild with different women by the tabloids, even if it IS after

Talk about naughty playboys, One Taste gives the reader one of the naughtiest.  Sabastian Brooks IS brought to life by K.A. Berg.  He’s a dirty talking guy that likes to deliver.   This book is funny in the sense that the main character just can’t stay out of trouble even when he’s trying to be good, which isn’t very often.  One Taste is the first of six books in the One series and is a very quick read (maybe an hour and half to two hours).  It was fast paced and dirty and fun and was just oh so ...more

This is the first part of Devin and Sebastian's story. It starts out pretty predictable in regards to one-night stand between strangers and then they end up running into each other again at the office. That being said, even with the predictability I still was all in. I am not sure if it was the cockiness, both literally and figuratively, of Sebastian or the mystery of who is behind the reasons that Devin is needed to be there to fix things up. All I know is that the steamy times between these tw ...more

I enjoyed the book as for a hot steamy quick read but honestly I’m still having a hard time deciding if I even like these characters. Devin was okay but Brooks is just too much of a cocky narcissistic jerk. There were a few moments where I would start to like him and then he would say something to ruin it again. Not sure if I want to keep reading the series.

One Taste ( The “ One” series boom 1)

I loved this book. You could feel the “Shock” both Sebastian and Devin felt on her first day - it practically dived off the page and smacked you in the mouth- I loved the sexual twoing and froing that went on during their work hours. I am really looking forward to their next round of sparring in Book 2. Excellent read.

One taste is never enough

Boy, isn't that the truth!

One Taste is a tease, a way to entice the reader. It gives us just enough to beg for more. It's erotic, it's sexy but not at the expense of the story.

I know I won't regret continuing this series. I just regret not having read it sooner.

What is she going to do.

Devin moves back to NYC and finds her self between a rock and a hard place. A man she had a one night stand she can't get out her mind. Brooks doesn't know what to do this woman has made h want more. He never wanted more. SURPRISE.... Now the are working together. Fate or evil?

Short, dirty and too the point. Sebastian is in trouble for eing the ultimate playboy. His dad and his sister are fed up after his last incident. He goes out on Friday almost messes up runs away ends up at a hotel and has a one night stand. Devin is something else and gives him a run for his money and the twist at the end.

One night of recklessness comes back to haunt Devin and Sebastian. Their chemistry is off the charts. Part I of a trilogy. First book I have read by this author. Will likely not be the last.
