When it comes to sex, good girl Skyler Thompson always plays it safe, choosing stable and sedate over wild and thrilling. She doesn’t do one-night-stands, but one look at sinfully sexy Gage Holt and she’s willing to reconsider. He makes her want to be bad for once in her life, and she’s prepared to take what she wants.

Danger follows former MMA fighter Gage Holt like a shadow. Despite his successes as part owner of Sin, an exclusive nightclub in Boston, Gage can’t risk getting involved with a woman, especially one as sweet as Skyler. Still, he can’t resist a taste—and it’s so damn good he has to see her again.

As addicted as he is to her, Gage knows there’s no future for him and Skyler—not with his past lurking in the dark corners of an MMA cage. But Skyler’s tougher than she looks, and she’s ready to fight for her man.

One Night of Sin is fast and furious and oh-so-dirty. I devoured this first After Hours story in one sitting – it’s just that addictive.

Skyler is a good girl who’s sick of being good and wants to take a walk on the wild side. What I loved about her is that she knows what she wants and goes after it, but she never loses her sweet, caring nature. She comes into her own in One Night of Sin after hooking up with Gage, a former MMA fighter who’s as closed off as she is open. Gage is a hot as hell hero who does his best to protect those he loves, even at great cost to himself. He’s not quite sure how he falls into a relationship with Skyler, but she brings out the best in him. The two of them complement one another perfectly, and I found myself grinning more often than not while watching them fall in love. Skyler and Gage are a flat-out adorable couple, which may sound odd since they’re also sexy as sin together, but it fits. Elle Kennedy has blended sweetness and steam like a master in this story and I couldn’t be more delighted. It isn’t all smooth sailing for Gage and Skyler, but every bit of their journey is entertaining to watch unfold.

One Night of Sin is my idea of a great summer read; it’s bright, fun, heartfelt, and hot. Gage and Skyler are endearing protagonists and I hope to see more of them in future After Hours tales. And speaking of future stories, the bits and pieces we’re teased with concerning Gage and Skyler’s friends have me incredibly intrigued. So much so that I’m already on the edge of my seat, waiting to return to Ms. Kennedy’s world of Sin!
