Now Live + Review: One Night by Aleatha Romig
My Thoughts on One Night…
I have totally fallen in love with the “lighter side of Aleatha”!! This is now the 2nd novel I’ve read from her that is Rom Com and let me tell you, Ms Romig has skills!!! Not only does she bring me the dark and twisted I absolutely love she also can bring me the sexy, swoon worthy, light hearted romances that brighten my day when I’m feeling down and out. She brings a smile to my face with her lighter side and I sincerely hope she continues to bring us readers a mix of both light and dark romances. This novel is a complete standalone and is told in alternating points of views.
It’s been five years since Amanda’s husband was killed in action and now her priority is her son. She doesn’t have time for dating or a social life. Her best friend talks her into going out on a blind date but ends up cancelling. She starts to talk to a handsome man at the bar and says to herself, screw it!! She hasn’t allowed herself to let loose for years so for one night, she is just Mandy, the young carefree women that isn’t tied down to responsibilities. The blind date didn’t work out but she after hitting it off with the man at the bar the two continue to meet but Mandy isn’t ready to let Malcolm completely into her world.
Malcolm is used to women falling at his feet. Being a successful hockey player for many years he has never found the one that he felt like he could settle down with. They were always interested in him for money, not for him. He was at the bar to also meet someone for a blind date but like Amanda’s it fell through. It’s refreshing to him to meet someone that is seeking more from him. Despite their agreement to just let go for one night, he is ready for something more.
Can Amanda open herself up to something more? She has always focused on her son’s life and not her own. Can Malcolm break down the barriers she’s worked so hard to put in place??? You will need to read to find out!! This was a huge 5 star read for me and I loved everything about Amanda and Malcolm’s story!! I hope you check One Night out and fall in love like I did!
When we finally pull apart, before I can speak or even contemplate what happened, Malcolm’s blue eyes shine down on me, taking me in and reading me.
His voice rumbles through the background commotion of the bar. “You taste like sweet wine and smell like perfume and desire.”
Warmth fills my cheeks. “You taste like good beer.”
“Good? You’re a beer connoisseur?”
I shrug. “Mostly, I know cheap beer.”
He lifts my chin, bringing his indigo eyes into focus. The room disappears, making those blue orbs all I can see.
“I’m a connoisseur,” he says as his thumb gently rubs over my bruised lips. “And you, beautiful Mandy, if you were a beer, would never be a cheap one. No, you’re a rich custom craft brew. I see it in your eyes, feel it in your touch, and smell it in the air. Kissing a stranger isn’t something you do, is it?”
I try to move my eyes away, but Malcolm’s grip of my chin is unrelenting. Meeting his gaze, I reply, “No. I won’t even bore you with how long it’s been since I’ve kissed a real man.”
His eyes sparkle. “You kiss fake men?”
“Boys. Well, only one actually.”
“You kiss boys…” And then, as if the reality of his statement hits home, he asks, “You have a son?”
My heart flutters, its speed increasing by the second. “I do, but I don’t want to talk about him. Not because he isn’t important for he is—he’s my world—but because tonight isn’t about him. It’s about me.” I can’t gauge Malcolm’s reaction. I can only guess that he’s assuming that I’m some needy woman trying to get a man to take on the responsibility of a kid who isn’t his.
I reach out and splay my fingers over his chest. His heart is beating to match mine. “I don’t want to talk about him,” I continue, “because he’ll never know about you—I’ll never tell him and never introduce you. Don’t worry. I’m not after a man to rescue me. I’m perfectly content with my life as a mother. I just wanted to remember what it felt like to be a woman…for just one night.”
“I’m not anti-children—”
I shake my head. “Stop. That doesn’t matter.” It’s then that I notice the filled glasses on the table and laugh. “When did the waitress come?”
Malcolm bows his head until our noses touch. He inhales deeply, his eyes closing as his hand falls to my lap. “I’d say just after you.”
More heat floods my cheeks. “I-I didn’t…”
“Then we need to do something about that.” He looks again at the full glasses. “I think the drinks came while my tongue was busy getting to know your sweet mouth.” His hand splays over my thigh.
My breathing hitches. “Malcolm?”
“You said you want one night. One night doesn’t end with a kiss. It begins with one.”
