Resilient and practical, Kara Barton has continually strived to live a respectable life. She went to college, embarked on a promising career as an attorney, married a great guy, and always appeared to be the perfect wife and mother. But all is not what it seems, and the troubling past Kara has been running from her entire life is about to catch up with her. Urged on by her insecurities about growing older, and desperately wanting to feel one more night of passion, Kara agrees to share a tryst in a hotel room with a sexy business associate, Scott Ellsworth. But Scott wants more than one night together, and Kara quickly discovers it is impossible to resist him. Soon Kara finds herself transformed into the kind of woman she vowed never to become, and the secure world she has struggled all her life to build begins to fall apart. Kara Barton is about to find out how a one-night stand can change everything.

**I received this book as a gift from the author for an honest review.**

I want to start off by saying I feel so lucky to be a book blogger and have the opportunity to read all of these awesome books that I normally wouldn't have picked up because the author is not well known!  To be able to help these indie or unknown authors get their awesome books out there is an honour and I am so happy that I was given the chance to read this book!

This was a very quick read.  I had a hard time putting it down.  The romance was steamy, the betrayal was captivating and it was well written.  What more can you ask for?

The title alone makes you think you are going to pick up a book about a woman who indulges in one night stands.  I thought the main character was going to tell us all about her many experiences with one night stands. That is not the case at all! 

The story starts off very predictable.  You just know where it is going to end up.  Typical married woman meets hot business man, has an affair, gets a rush, continues to have one night stands because of said rush.  That is until Weis hits you with a twist near the end.  A twist that changes everything!  

The character development was strong.  The author did an amazing job at reeling you into her world.  She made sure that you feel all of the emotions the characters are feeling.  I felt saddened, furious, and even cracked a few smiles. I would never normally sympathize with a cheating wife.  But it was written in such a way that I found myself feeling more sorry for Kara than for her poor broken hearted hubby.  

This is a well rounded book that you don't want to miss out on!  You can purchase this book at Amazon .  You can check out the author's website Here!  Follow her on Twitter @alexandreaweis or become a fan on Goodreads.  I will definitely be on the lookout for more of her books!
