Sam turns Riley down when she first brings the idea up to him but the thought of her learning from someone else makes his blood boil, so Sam agrees to a one-time learning experience. Since this is my official Winter Holiday Contest story I'd like to take this opportunity to wish all my readers a great holiday season spent hopefully with someone you love. It was the desire to tell Sam just how wrong about her he was. Turns out it's not much of a secret. Yeah, you guessed right, there is one of those there. This gorgeous sex kitten delivers her inside knowledge of all things kink and spice in her regular column, and has quickly become a popular go to girl for her vast knowledge of everything that goes on between the sheets.
Sex in a long-term relationship will probably be different than , because the dynamic is different. After a decade Sam has never staked his claim on Riley. Her reputation is a facade that she uses to keep unwanted men away. When she put aside her sass and her pride and her carefully crafted sexy reputation, Riley was just like the thousands of women Stiletto spoke to every month. With a new assignment to write about an actual personal account, Riley has nothing to go on, but she has one man in mind to change that: Sam. I think it is hard to be such an expert on something that the character had practically no personal experience with it detracted my love of the story a little bit. I loved this book with all my book-loving heart.
I would take him as my own man any day. Sam had had a freaking decade to stake his Just One Night was an adorable friendship to lovers story. I wish we get to know him more. Here are my 'just one night' book thoughts. Sam had a shitload of buggage on his shoulders. I instantly connected with both of them.
In the previous books she came across as this put together, sex goddess, but that is far from the truth. The Sex, Love and Stiletto Series books are definitely some of my all-time favourites, I just hope against hope that Lauren will give us one more book, to finish it all off. . Also, one more thing: Riley is awesome. Years of longing from afar lent a gut wrenching quality to their situation that made it oh-so-much sweeter when these two finally figured things out! As most of you know, I have a real issue with women hiding from their feelings, running, or allowing communication issues to stand in the way of happiness.
A second later she'd grabbed her computer chair and had plopped herself down on it facing me. So I decided to give the series another go, and I'm so, so happy I did because Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The problem for Riley is she writes all these fantastic articles about sex, but has little education on the topic to pull from. However, as all Layne's couples, they have amazing chemistry and I really enjoy the interactions with the other characters. I knew it'd kill her if she found out.
The chemistry has always been there, and once they act on it, there is no turning back. Riley and Sam know each other since kids. The most important concept from this book was really just be yourself and own it. Julie had to be coaxed out of her chair, and luckily Grace had the forethought to grab the box of tissues on the way out. Which demonstrated to me just how excited Katrina was. And I, her eighteen year old brother, had been eagerly awaiting her return from school for weeks.
It's like a nonstop romantic comedy up in here. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. She has had a platonic relationship with Sam for the last ten years. Riley and Sam have been friends for the last 10 years and Riley has always wanted their relationship to be so much more. I am not sure I could fake that. They always seem to skate the line between flirting and friendship and Riley longs for more: She did this to herself every damn time, holding on to hope that she and Sam would actually cross that line between bickering and flirting, curiosity and jealousy. Thanksgiving dinner at the Williams, even with one member clearly hurting, was always a loud, happy, raucous family affair.
Though he knows once he has her, one night will never be enough. But fate has intervened and now she has to write a personal article about the woman behind her stories. I was looking forward to seeing how Lauren Layne would spin their tale and I have to admit that I wasn't disappointed. She is also sassy and sexy as ever. Could you imagine how much real boy toy seducing she was doing in private all those years? And then there's Sam-the minute he walked into her family's door she's had a huge crush on him. I was down on the beach and all of a sudden she was there. The problem becomes when said dude occasionally crosses the line into overwhelming dick territory because of said issues.
