A while back, I won a contest over at Talli Roland's blog. So the lovely Wendy S. Marcus sent me a copy of her book (and she wrote a little note in it...too cool!). It's my honor to review When One Night Isn't Enough because I LOVED reading it. :)
Here's the blurb from Harlequin:
"Nurse Ali Forshay has swapped dating disasters for nights out with the girls. But after spending more time than is strictly necessary discussing the man she loves to hate—the notoriously delicious Dr. Jared Padget—Ali's horrifying realization is that she's one hundred percent crazy in lust with him! Her conclusion: spend a feverish night together. After all, it would just be a onetime thing and it would cure her obsession…wouldn't it?"
Whoa, was this book hot. I like to cook while I read, and you better believe the hubby's steak was quite well-done before I noticed what I'd done. Wendy painted some vivid scenes. This is one author who does not have a problem using all the paints and brushes in her arsenal.
Plot: The plot is believable. I could easily imagine a doctor and a nurse having a relationship. Wendy doesn't make it easy for them though. I enjoyed the evolution of their relationship, and I enjoyed that it wasn't a "they lived happily ever after" half way through the novel.
Characters: Nurse Ali and Dr. Jared are multi-faceted, and I found this to be a nice change of pace from the typical romance novel. They both have some serious baggage, and I loved how they dealt with it and with each other.
Whoa Moment: Let's just say the first time Ali and Jared get together is...um...stimulating. I had to fan myself with the book. ;P
This is a book you need to order RIGHT NOW. You won't regret the purchase. This is not your normal romance novel, and I found it to be one of the best I've read.
