Picture this, you have been out of the dating scene for a while and for a birthday gift your friends hire a service to hook you up for a one night stand. You meet this person and spark fly. You like him…he likes you, but you are both too scared to admit that it was love at first sight. This is One Night Ride by Jennah Scott. (Release date: February 11, 2014)
Jennah was kind enough to provide me with an e-copy of the book. Please note, I am not paid for this review in any way.
“Brett’s ready to get back into the dating game. Now that he’s done with the rodeo and focusing on his ranch, he’s ready to get back into the dating pool. Competing in rodeos across the country kept him out of the game, so when he finds out about Madame Evangeline from a friend he takes the chance.
Jace lost his first love a year ago to another guy. For his thirtieth birthday his friends decide it’s time for him to end the self-imposed dry spell. They contact Madame Eve to pass on his information. Knowing his friends won’t leave him alone, Jace goes along with the plan for a one-night stand with Brett. He expected some flirting and fun. What Jace didn’t expect was to find a man he might be willing to spend more than one night with.”
Overall, I enjoyed this book…however, it was way too short for my taste. I know that this is billed as a short story, but to me it was a little too short. There was a beginning, the beginning of the middle, and an end. I would have love to see more middle. I can use my imagination to fill in the blanks, but I like to get lost in a book. Perhaps one day Brett and Jace will demand their story to be longer. I would love that by the way…. The story in general was good. Jace and Brett were believable characters.
