Now Mother Nature is having the last word—with a secret baby surprise!
Jade Dare has done everything in her power to overcome her mother’s unstable influence. Changed her name. Became a success. Vowed never to risk passing on the potential for inherited pain. What has it gotten her? One fiancé who wanted her for money. A second who cheated on her with his brother’s wife.
Now she’s sworn off men. Or at least off serious relationships. But when the chance to indulge in a one night stand with a man she’s secretly fantasized about arrives, she jumps in. Only to land heart-first into a case of the feels she can’t bring herself to trust.
Knox Sinclair always suspected he liked his brother’s fiancé a little too much, that’s why he kept his hands to himself. But with ties broken and Jade all too willing, a no-strings-attached night sounds like a damned good idea.
Except one night isn’t nearly enough. But while Knox is busy convincing Jade they have a chance at forever, the past is planning one last parting shot.
I’ve said before that I’m not a big fan of millionaire/billionaire characters but it still stands that I’ll happily read Carly Phillips’s work with these kinda leading men.
I thoroughly enjoyed Just One Kiss. I understood Jade’s reticence around relationships and why her mind was set on one night only with Knox. I liked that she was upfront about what she was looking for or prepared to get involved in even if she was gonna miss the chance at a great future when it presented itself.
Knox Sinclair, I really liked this guy. Different from the wastes of space that Jade had previously been in a relationship with, he’s an honest-to-the-gods good guy….. he cared, paid attention and was exactly what Jade needed, even if she couldn’t quite admit it to herself!!
These two have a shared history but they also have a connection and loads of chemistry. Jade thinks one night is gonna be enough when Knox knows they’re meant for so much more together.
I loved Knox’s reaction and actions when things between the pair got serious, there was no doubting where he stood and what he wanted.
The book dealt with a couple of serious issues that were well written and handled realistically.
A solid 4.5* read and another good read in this series.
