Will a hot night with a stranger spark more than she ever imagined?

I’m Calla.
I’m responsible. I plan. I’m cautious—always.
Until I see him, the gorgeous stranger with the rugged hands and the dark mood.
Instantly, I’m drawn. I can’t stop staring. I can’t stop wanting.
When he makes me an indecent proposal, I do something shocking.
I say yes.
I follow a man whose name I don’t kn

Seducing The Stranger is book 3 in the "Forbidden Confessions" series by Shayla Black. This is Quint and Calla's story.
Calla is in Vegas and is at the hotel bar which she meets a handsome, mysterious stranger who definitely hits all the right notes on her list. Quint goes into the bar, never expecting to meet Calla and it's an instant attraction for him, in fact, both of them. They drink and talk and end up with a one night steamy stand. Will they reach out and explore for more?

A steamy, hot and VERY seductive romance from Shayla Black that left me fanning myself and panting for more! This is one sexy short read you don't want to miss.

This might be a short novella but there is nothing short on the steamy side.
Calla is in a Vegas bar trying to absorb yet another of her mothers ideas when a man walks in and stands beside her. He starts talking to her and his voice stirs things inside her that no other man has ever made her feel. She finds herself attracted to him and wants to spend more time with him. When he suggests a way to work out his anger, she agrees and she doesn't even know his name.
Quint is attracted to the beautiful

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

Oh this is one very steamy, sexy, and enjoyable read. Grab a cold drink, extra ice, maybe a fan, and somewhere private and give yourself a treat. If you have never read any of Shayla Black's books this would give you a flavour of what you have been missing and send you on a journey of very pleasurable discovery ... not quite as hot as that on which Quint took Calla, but enough to need a cold drink.

The set up is perfect

Lots of growly Jason Clark in this insta-love quickie.

A chance meeting at a bar leads to a very hot and intense one-night stand...or so they thought. Quint and Calla are both in Vegas tending to family business. Both are having issues w/their parents, and they share their tales of woe w/one another. As they contemplate how their final night in Vegas will end, they decide to share a night together. No strings, and they say goodbye in the morning. But there's something pulling Quint and Calla toge

A real man gives up a one night stand for a woman he can't stand one night without...

This novella might be short but it definitely packs a punch in the sexy and steamy category. Calla jumps out of her comfort zone and has a one night stand with Quint. She meets him in a bar, so cliché she knows but the man was sex on a stick. She loves his dominant nature and it is not lacking in the bedroom. She did not realize the moves he was making existed. The man undoubtedly had game.

This is a quick and steamy read with a twist that readers may or may not see coming. Calla is in a Vegas bar dealing with her feelings about her mother’s latest plan when she meets Quint who is there looking to take the edge off of his issues with his father’s latest idea. From the moment they spot one another, one thing leads to another and they wind up having a one-night affair…but is that all it is? This is one storyline that I wish was longer but Ms. Black has once again delivered wonderful ...more

What are the odds?

Calla is used to her mother going off half cocked but never expected to follow in her footsteps. That is until she meets Quint. Will one night be enough?

I enjoyed this quick read by Shayla Black. It is insta love that feels natural and organic. Calla is responsible to a "t" and never thought a one night s tr and would be in her future. But Quint brings out a side of her she never knew she had. I loved that Ms. Black allowed Calla a moment to cut loose that gave her more. I enjo

Anger and disappointment in family lead to a night of exquisite torment and white hot passion for Quint and Calla. He gives her a night of firsts as she satisfies him like no other woman ever has.

Shayla Black always delivers a great story with fabulous characters. She added just a little bit of a twist to this short sexy novella that you may not have seen coming. Or maybe you did!

Read this book in like 45 minutes, loved how they met in the bar each having their own problems with their parent. But still where interested enough in each other that they went to bed. When the wedding of their parents took place and they realized that they were in love. How the dealt with being step- siblings was fun and am glad they decided to get married. Loved the HEA.

Short but very well developed story. Calla is in the hotel bar upset about her mother's latest mistake. Quint is in for a similar reason as his dad is making another bad decision. They get to talking, and decide to have a one night stand to burn off the anger they are feeling. Is love at first sight possible? Does karma have other plans?
I throughly enjoyed this steamy short!

Fast paced, engaging and totally sensually intimate! Seducing the Stranger will keep the fire burning between the pages of you get my drift. This book is hot, hot and more hot HOWEVER, I will say the ending was extremely fast paced for me and very unrealistic- even for a romance.

Seducing the Stranger catches the reader's attention from the get-go and leaves them needing to cool off in the end.

When a grown adult has a parent that makes their head spin sometimes an adult beverage is the only thing that can help at that moment. And sometimes having a drink can change life. Quint and Calla both seem to need that drink and a bit more. Quinn is sex on a stick and Calla is the angel he didn’t even know he was waiting for. I love the honesty between them from the beginn
