Crenshaw Jacobson met the woman of his dreams…and he was determined to spend every night possible with her. But Waverlee Armstrong was leery of commitment, having been abandoned by her family at an early age. She knew that she loved Shaw…but can she learn to trust him and spend just one more night?

Shivering against him as she parted her lips to speak, Waverlee moaned as his tongue swept forward, stealing the opportunity to deepen their kiss. And holy moly, the man could kiss. And not just any old kiss either. It was the-steal-your-breath-I-can’t-live-without-his-touch-because-nothing-else-in-the-world-matters kind of kiss a girl spends her life dreaming about. Their tongues danced together for long minutes as everything else faded away. The people. The noise. Everything took a backseat to the fierce passion Shaw created with a simple touch of his mouth to hers.
Forcing herself to find her voice when Shaw lifted his mouth from hers to take a deep breath, Waverlee flashed a furtive glance up at his darkened eyes. “Wow,” she breathed shakily, clutching handfuls of his light blue dress shirt in her fists as the world seemed to spin at warp speed, “I..I…don’t think I’ve ever felt anything like that before,” she whispered, the words catching in her throat as his finger swept against her lower lip.
“Then you best hold on real tight to me, baby, ‘cause I’m just getting started,” he replied, dropping his head to steal another deep, wet kiss from her lips as he curved one big hand around her neck, wrapping her silky hair around his fist and tugging gently.
“He couldn’t exactly explain the change that had come over him. It was as if his heart had instantly recognized its mate.”
“My soul knows yours, sweet girl, because yours is the missing piece to mine.”
Told from dual points of view, One More Night follows the story of Shaw and Waverlee. From the moment Shaw laid eyes on Waverlee, he knew he had to have her. There was an in-explainable connection between them, and he would stop at nothing to win Waverlee over. Waverlee has never known what love is. Her family life was far from perfect and she learned at a young age that they only person she could count on in her life, was herself. Never wanting to depend on anyone else, Waverlee worked hard to get the things that she wanted in life, never taking a moment for herself. She never saw Shaw coming, but he was a force to be reckoned with. She never stood a chance and if fate had anything to say about it, one night would never be enough…
Since this story is a novella, you know I gotta keep it short and sweet, so I don’t give anything away. Overall, I thought this book was a good read. It was fun. It was sexy. I easily read this book in just a few hours. This is definitely a story with insta-love, but the characters have a lot of heart and such great chemistry that it works well for their story. This story is very light on the drama. There are a few intense moments, but nothing crazy or over the top.
If you’re a fan of insta-love/insta-romance and are looking for a quick and sexy read, this might just be the book for you.
*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review*
