That’s exactly what the night Alana spends with Ethan is. When she walks into the bar, all she wants is to drink away the horrible weekend she’s just had. Instead, she ends up leaving with a stranger, giving in to a passion she’s never felt before. Only, she ends up wanting him much more than she can afford to.

Ethan didn’t plan on bringing Alana back to his hotel room, or the way each kiss and touch would make him crave her more. But their time is cut short when he comes out of the bathroom and finds her gone. When he next sees her, five months later, he’s in for a surprise.

She’s pregnant, and now two strangers need to figure out how to be parents together, all while deciding whether to embrace or deny all the feelings they left behind in that room months ago.

Don't you just love it when a one-night stand turns into happily ever after?

Alana came from a family who lived to put her down, to diminish her. They called it religion and she called it oppression. She got free, but they're her parents so she still allows him into her life, demeaning every action she makes. One night she wants to escape it all and finds a connection with Ethan. However, after a hot night of passion, she runs away. She knows that she could have so much more with him, but old habits die hard. But doesn't she deserve to be happy?

That one night of passion leads to a whole new life and Ethan wants to be there, every step of the way. These characters were so sweet and I loved how the chemistry between them only grew as they got to know each other better. Ethan's family, his best friend Bryce, and her best friend Livia added the love and support Alana desperately needed. There was even a suspenseful and heartbreaking twist that caught me by surprise.

I love the warmth and sensuality this author infuses her characters and stories with. I'm so glad there are more stories to come!
