No More Mr. Nice Guy…

The moment AJ Walsh sees the sexy, tattooed pixie walk up to his bar, it's lust at first sight. He's always been labeled the "nice" guy―opening doors, buying flowers, and never, ever having one-night stands. But with this wicked little angel with red lips and unfathomably dark eyes? Oh, yeah. Tonight, "nice" has nothing to do with it...

Brett Conlon is trying to convince her family that she's put away her reckless wild girl side for good. Nothing―and no one―could be better for her reputation than golden boy AJ Walsh. So they make a deal: if he plays The Good Boyfriend for her family, he can be a very, very bad boy with her. Now their one naughty night is about to turn into a whole lot of trouble...


In Review My Thoughts

Elle Kennedy’s After Hours series is one of my favorites in Brazen’s line. I can always count on her to provide strong and sexy characters, a storyline I enjoy and smokin’ hot sexy times. She continued the streak with One Night of Trouble.

I absolutely devoured this book. I loved that AJ and Brett had a past – or, kinda, anyhow. I enjoyed the role reversal of him being the clean-cut “good guy” and her being the tattooed “bad girl.” I loved even more that they were both so much more than the stereotypes the embodied. Underneath that All American exterior, AJ definitely had an edge – and he liked to talk dirty. I do appreciate a good dirty talking man. Rawr. There was a lot more to Brett than met the eye, too. She was far more concerned with how her family perceived her than you might imagine from outside appearances alone. I really liked them both. And I adored them together. They definitely brought out the best in each other.

This just might be Elle’s sexiest book yet. There’s one scene (or, well, a number of smaller scenes) that I was certain was going to overheat my iPad. Her books have always been sexy, but this one moved into a whole different territory… and I liked it. A lot. Nothing like a little light BDSM and edging to spice things up.

One Night of Trouble was a quick read. I really liked the characters, and enjoyed seeing how they fit in with the dynamic of the other characters in the After Hours series. If you like steamy romance with substance and you’ve not yet read Elle, I highly recommend you give her a shot. She’s definitely one of my favorite Brazen authors.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
