Review / Quote-Tastic: One Night of Sin by Elle Kennedy

One Night of Sin (After Hours #1)
by Elle Kennedy
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.

He shoved a hand in hair, yanking hard on one thick strand before lazily twining it around his fingers. "Getting fucked by a stranger. That's what you want, isn't it? For me to fuck you right here, right now, against the wall. Isn't that what you want Skyler?"

Enjoyable hot read with a yummy dirty talker and fun banter. I have to admit I have a little girl crush on Skyler. She is persistent when she wants something and that something is Gage. I loved her determination to get Gage to have a one night stand with her. It was refreshing to see a heroine who goes after what she wants. Love that she is one to start all the fun banter as she is spunky when trying to get her way.  She is in an annoying rut sexually  and wants to break free. Since Gabe is not into commitments he is the perfect guy for her to let loose.
Gage's character I adored. He is blunt and to the point. For his reasons he does not do relationships. He is a devoted brother who if anyone was in his shoes would most likely given up. Loved the boys club feel with his nightclub co-partners and friends. He might not want to get close to Skyler but his actions showed he does. It was the littlest things that got me swooning over him. 
I have mixed feelings on the sex scenes. I love playful in my bedroom scenes but at times I felt it was over the top talking and I do not mean the good dirty talking. I loved his dirty talking mouth but Skyler was at times a little too much for me. I felt some parts of these scenes were a bit odd.
I am curious about Reed and his story in One Night of Scandal (After Hours #2).

  1. Oh, the dirty talkers, why they put a grin on my face, I just don't know. ;)

    I already had my eye on this one so glad to see it was good.

  2. I've already got it, I love dirty talkin' and fun banter ! A woman who goes after her man is a bonus. Yes, sometimes characters talk so much in the bedroom you wonder if they're really concentrating on what they're doing, lol !

  3. Mmm dirty talkers are my favorite. I need to get on these from her. I've read 2 of her series now and enjoyed them both but still have quite a few to get to. Ahhh!

    1. I have one other book from another series of hers I look foward to trying.

  4. I'm all for the dirty talking too, but too much other stuff... no thanks, that's for out of bed time.
