New York’s hottest “sexpert” has been living a lie—and it’s up to one man to keep her honest . . . all night long.
Riley McKenna knows sex – good sex, bad sex, kinky sex…Her articles in Stiletto magazine are consistently the publication’s most scandalous—and the most read. But Riley has a secret…all that sexy talk? Not an ounce of it comes from personal experience. Her own bedroom escapades are more limited than even her best friends know. When her editor requests that all columnists write something more personal for Stiletto’s anniversary issue, Riley turns to the one man she’s always been able to count on and calls in the favor of a lifetime.
Sam Compton would do anything for Riley McKenna. Anything except be her experimental sex toy. He refuses her request. At least until she tells him that it’ll either be him or she’ll go to someone else. And that, Sam can’t accept. Reluctantly he agrees to her terms—one night of completely meaningless sex in the name of research. Riley thinks she’s prepared for what awaits her in Sam’s bed. After ten years of writing about sex, actually doing it shouldn’t be that different, right? So wrong. What starts as “one time only” becomes “just one more time.” And then one more. And before they know it, Riley and Sam learn first-hand that when it comes to love, there’s no such thing as just one night.

Not having read anything from Ms. Layne before, I’m elated to say this was a great first read, and even though this is the third book in the series, I didn’t feel at all lost.
In Just One Night we are reintroduced to Riley. She is a twenty-seven year old sex columnist, great friend, wonderful daughter, loyal sister, and wanton for a man she can’t…or shouldn’t want. Sam. Riley’s older brother’s best friend. Hot. Sexy. Available…yet off limits. The sexual tension between the two is palpable. And the build up is full of angst, humor, lust driven behavior, and tears.
The relationships Riley has with her girlfriends is one to be envied, or aspire to. They love one another unconditionally, tell each other like it is, and are there with their shoulders prepped when needed.
I laughed, cried from laughing so hard, swore and swooned my way through this book. I will be one-clicking the other two books in this series and highly recommend you do too!
