A new STANDALONE romance from New York Times bestselling author Jana Aston
Have you ever set out to have a one night stand with a sexy stranger?
No? I’m the only one?
Just kidding, I would never.
But then I figured, why not? My entire life I’ve been good and it’s gotten me nowhere.
I’m owed a little fun, aren’t I? A reward for being good.
Sure, a new pair of shoes would be more appropriate, but Mr. Sexy Stranger is more appealing. And when he speaks—in that British accent—it’s a done deal. Every American woman has a hot British guy fantasy. Well, most do. I haven’t taken a poll or anything, but I’m pretty sure it’s a fact.
You know that saying about best-laid plans?
Good, because I don’t either, but I assume they go awry.
Like my one night stand…
“Mind if I join you?”
I look up and he’s standing beside my seat, a drink in his hand that he uses to signal towards the empty seat beside me. And what was that? Did I detect an accent? I think I did, but I can’t be that lucky. I swallow my nerves and quickly run my eyes over him. Tall. Fit. Oxford shirt untucked, paired with a worn pair of jeans. Leather loafers on his feet and the hint of end-of-day scruff on his jaw. Thick, neatly cut, well-styled dark hair and expressive brown eyes watching me with interest.
“I hope the drink is to your satisfaction.” He dips his head towards my beverage. “I asked the bartender to refresh you, but if you wanted something different…” He trails off with a small frown at my glass.
Accent confirmed. I have just hit the holy grail of potential one-night stands.
“You’re British,” I say, fighting the grin from my face.
“I’ll take that as a yes,” he replies and sets his own drink on the bar top while resting on the stool beside me, his long legs bent slightly at the knees in order for his feet to rest on the floor. “Unless you have a problem with my country?” he inquires, brow raised and a small smile on his lips.
Do you know what’s great about British men?
I mean, I’ve never met one before this and they’re likely no different than American men, but the accent. It’s everything, right? You can say it’s a cliché or whatever, but come on. It’s panty-meltingly good. I know he’s speaking the same language but the words just sound so much better falling from his lips.
“I’m Jennings,” he says, extending a hand, and I almost laugh. Jennings? It’s obviously fake. This guy is too old to have a trendy millennial name like Jennings. Also, it sounds British for ‘I’m giving you a fake name.’ But fine, I’m game.
“Rose,” I tell him and slip my hand into his. His hand engulfs mine and he’s not quick to withdraw, instead running his thumb gently over the back of my hand. I like the feeling a lot, the texture and warmth of his skin creating an immediate spark of interest in touching a whole lot more of him.
“Rose,” he repeats, pausing and tilting his head a fraction as if he doesn’t believe me. He shouldn’t, it’s not my name.
Oh my goodness, another fabulous read by Jana Aston. Her books just keep getting better and better – I absolutely loved this one – brilliant unique storyline, fun and quirky characters, hot adorable swoonworthy male and off the chart sexy scenes – just fabulous!!
I adored Violet – her quirky, crazy character – she’s had some problems in the past and is trying to sort her life out. Doing this tour guide gig for a week for her sister is a little crazy and not really her thing, but she does it anyway. Her chance meeting in a bar with a hot British guy makes her step up her game and go for a one night stand thing, to cross it off her bucket list, and so she says she is a Sure Thing for him that night.
Jennings is smoking hot and instantly attracted to this quirky American girl, who calls herself Rose, but he can see she’s hiding something, and falls for her quirkiness immediately. They have a mad hot passionate sexy night and he finds her gone in the morning.
When he starts his coach tour with his Nan in the morning the tour host turns out to be none other that the girl he spent the night with, but calls herself Daisy. He’s over the moon to be able to spend the next 7 days with her, while Daisy/Violet is nervous and definitely hiding something from him.
A great story line, Jennings is seriously hot with his Britishness – serious in nature with a dry sense of humour and a wickedly hot dirty mouth. Violet can’t help but fall for him. There’s lots of twoing and froing as the story starts to unravel and we see just how well these two fit together – it was great watching their relationship develop as the story unfolded.
There is also a fantastic epilogue to this story that you will just melt for, one that just finishes this book off perfectly. It was a great read, witty, sexy, funny – I think you will love it, just like I did. A highly recommended 5 British swoony star read!!
