Just One Night: Part 2 - Elle Casey
I loved this book but Arrggghhhh! that ending killed me It’s no secret that Elle Casey is my favorite author and there’s so many reasons why. One of the biggest though is that I always have so much fun reading her books. I don’t care what they’re about, whether they’re a romance or a YA fantasy, they always have one thing in common: they are SO much fun! Just One Night Part 2 was no exception. I love this serial and I’m really glad that she’s writing them every couple of weeks because I would go insane if I had to wait any longer than that for the next one. Especially after the ending in this latest episode.
Just One Night is the tale of the sexy but lonely Jennifer and the smart, no nonsense British businessman William. They meet in the first book when Jennifer puts out an ad for a no-nonsense one night stand and after rejecting most of the callers because they set off her “crazy alarm” she finally gets a call from William. The two meet, have a magical time together and it ends with Jennifer leaving unexpectedly. In the second book we find out that Jennifer’s wishes she had taken her BFF Mia’s advice and not even put out the stupid ad because she can’t stop thinking about William. She really puts her heart out there most of the time and falls hard for people who don’t deserve her so while she’s wallowing in self pity Mia drags her off to a dinner party hosted by her sleazy boss. She brings Jennifer as a way of keeping away from her boss’s unprofessional advances and there they run into William. Unbeknownst to Jennifer, William too has been unable to stop thinking about that night. He can’t get Jennifer or her body out of his mind and after the dinner party they head to a club along with William’s player of a brother and things quickly heat up.
William and Jennifer never did get to finish their one complete night together and it’s obvious that both of them are highly attracted to each other. The club scene is sizzling hot and it’s been very obvious from the first book that both of them belong together. They have so much in common not to mention their complete physical attraction to each other. The tension from the first book is doubled in this one and the smoking hot scenes are an inferno this time, it completely goes into total meltdown. So now that they’ve been reunited they can finally live happily ever after like Cinderella and Prince Charming right? Well not exactly because this loosely based fairy tale also has a wicked witch and boy is she a piece of work. That’s not the actual words I’d like to use but I’m trying to keep things PG lol. OMG this ending was sheer torture and I know it’s bound to upset a lot of people which is just a testament to how much people are truly invested in these characters and this story. It’s really awesome that Elle Casey is adapting the continuing story based on reader feedback so we all get a hand in shaping this story. As soon as I get through with this review I’m heading over to her site and letting her know what I thought along with where I hope the story will go in the next book. So not only is this a great story but it’s also a lot of fun and something we can help influence. I love a good serial and I am eagerly awaiting each new episode.
This was another well written episode. The plot’s pacing was perfect and I adore both of the main characters along with Mia. I love the fact that it’s got a bit of that fairy tale feeling to it and I also love it that Elle Casey’s books always brighten up my day. You just can’t ask for anything more than that so I’ll close with a big smile on my face and the knowledge that I get to do this all over again in a couple of weeks
