I love Laura Kaye’s stories, they have hot romance, they have humour and a spectrum of emotions for real every day issues. She sucks you right into her story from the start and spits you out with a satisfied heartfelt and emotional sigh when you’ve turned the last page.
One Night with a Hero was a great sequel to Her Forbidden Hero, was it predictable…yeah kind of, did this influence my enjoyment? Nope not at all! Laura writes sexy indulgence with just the right amount of emotional angst that makes this reminiscent of a glass of your favourite wine accompanied by a handmade exquisite chocolate truffle. You know the kind I mean I am sure.
We have Brady; Brady is just lush! A very sexy, gorgeous, tall, built and very alpha Special Forces soldier, but he comes with huge emotional barriers.
Brady had a pretty messed up childhood. He grew up with his sister under their abusive father’s hand after their Mum died. As a consequence he does not believe in love, marriage or commitment. Rather he is the king of one night stands…he believes in lust!
Brady has recently moved into town as he has real anger management issues and is under instructions to get his head straight. These issues all stem from his childhood and Brady struggles to get a handle on his emotions.
Then we have Joss; Joss is wild and an absolutely beautiful woman inside out. Joss has such a big heart but a real sucky track record with men and their commitment issues.
As someone who yes has had pink hair, have piercings and tattoos I loved this character, it was real nice to have this heroine who was that bit different to the typical!! Joss comes across as confident yet has an endearing vulnerability. She has a quick wit and is pretty clued up.
Joss and Brady meet by accident. He sees her sat in the park reading, looking desolate. The immediate chemistry between Brady and Joss is intense and hot and that night after an extremely passionate one night stand is where their journey begins…the plan was never to see each other again! Yeah like that was ever going to happen hahaha…
So I loved this story it was a quick sexy romantic read with well-developed characters and not once did it feel rushed or lacking. I can definitely recommend this series.
