SYNOPSIS: Mel Thompson just dumped her cheating ex after two years together. Now she’s determined to understand the allure of casual sex by having a steamy fling of her own at a notoriously raunchy underground club. When her best friend, Adam Caras, catches on to her plan, he makes a surprising offer to derail her. If she wants a hot fling, he’ll give it to her.
Who better than Adam, renowned lady-killer, to demonstrate the erotic pleasures of a one night stand? Sex could ruin their friendship, but after a soul-searing kiss, Mel fears one night may never be enough.
REVIEW: Mel and Adam have been friends for years. They are actually best friends. When Adam catches on that Mel is going to try and have a one night stand with a random stranger he decides that he will offer himself instead. He has a surprise planned for Mel and she goes along with him. He persuades her for just one kiss to see if they could have the one night stand. That one kiss ignited a fire in both of them that they could hardly wait to get to Adam’s place and rip each other’s clothes off. Adam loves hard and is everything that Mel would want in a man. She finds that one night isn’t enough. They both love each other and decide to give their relationship more of a chance.
I really liked this story. Usually short stories can be too rushed and short for a better word. I think that the author took her time to develop the story between the two characters. They had the history of being friends and obviously Adam had strong feelings for Mel longer than she knew. He was waiting until she dumped her cheating boyfriend before he made his move. Once he set his sights on getting her there was no hope for Mel. She was a goner.
I highly recommend this story.
