The wrong man never felt so right...

Ex-fighter Reed Miller has been secretly lusting over his best friend’s girl for months, but he refuses to jeopardize a friendship over a woman—especially one who doesn’t like him all that much. Now that Darcy’s on the market again, it’s even more imperative to stick to his strict hands-off policy. But the sizzling attraction between them is too powerful to ignore, and once he’s had a taste of her…all bets are off.

Darcy Grant is tired of walking the straight and narrow path. She’s on the hunt for passion, and there’s no denying Reed is just the man to give it to her. Although she has no interest in dating a bad boy, and certainly not her ex’s best friend, it’s impossible not to melt beneath Reed’s skillful touch. Now it’s just a matter of setting a few ground rules—and hoping her rule-breaking, sweet-talking bad boy agrees to follow them. But if she lets Reed into her bed, does she stand a chance of keeping him out of her heart?

My Thoughts:

After the awesomeness that is One Night of Sin, I had to get my hands on One Night of Scandal. It was practically a no brainer. When you find a great book, your first instinct is to check out everything else by the author, especially the continuation in the series. And while I love love loved One Night of Sin, the feelings I have for One Night of Scandal were much grander.

So, we've got Reed, the guy who's been pining over his best friend's girlfriend, Darcy. Even though Darcy and AJ are no longer together, the unwritten rule of not dating a friend's ex is still in play. The attraction, however, is impossible to ignore. Reed tries to resist, but Darcy pushes him into admitting how he feels... leading them into a kiss that throws their lives off balance. They think that's the end of it, especially considering the unwritten rule, but they can't stay away. Is there a chance that there's more to the two of them than meets the eye?

One Night of Scandal is so captivating, it'll have you flipping pages quicker than normal. Reed and Darcy's chemistry is off the charts. It's not a lie that Elle Kennedy has quickly become a favorite, and she'll remain a favorite if she keeps writing such amazing stories.

  1. Funny that you mention liking one book from an author and checking out everything else from them. I actually have the opposite problem. It's like I forget they rocked and don't read their other books. Sigh. I need to work on this.

    1. I try to keep up with an author I enjoy! Sometimes it doesn't always work out, but I usually end up buying a lot of their books even if I can't read them right away. :P
