Rating: 4 of 5 Kinks!
Blind since childhood, Sierra is satisfied with her success as a relationship therapist. Contacting 1Night Stand is an outlet for her physical needs, or so she tells herself. When she meets Daniel, the chemistry is definitely there, but a single parent with a child has the terrifying potential to disrupt her orderly life.
After losing his wife in a fire three years before that left him terribly scarred, Daniel has focused on raising his young daughter and little else. Meeting Sierra through 1Night Stand is a way to step back into the world. And he definitely can’t deny the instant attraction.
Madame Evangeline has a sweet surprise for them as they discover one another…
Olivia has become an instant buy or review grab author for me. Her writing is effortless, and she is able to tell an incredible story in a very small amount of words. This story is not different. The 1NightStand series books are like fine desserts. But you either grab a winner, or you grab an, “Aw, that was cute.” This was impressed me. It was fresh, different, and made me want to read more about Sierra and Daniel. You are taken on a sweet journey in this story; two characters, both that have some sort of tragic background that they have had to overcome. I am convinced Madame Eve is like Aphrodite at this point. How could she not be, she delivers hot sex and perfect matches. Well, I think Olivia most of all delivers hot sex in a very sweet package.
From beginning to end, I couldn’t put the story down. I flicked it open, and I kept reading till the last page and then I screamed, like I am apparently going to do with all Olivia Starke books, because she leaves it on a note that could open up to so much more! However, 1Nightstands are not meant to be revisited, so you know, in your own brain, that YOU are the one that has to fill in the blanks from that point on. I loved that the lead female was blind. I often wonder why the heroine of romance’s is never inflicted with that challenge to overcome. For Sierra, it is natural, and makes her a stronger woman. Does she have vulnerable moments? Yes, she does, and that makes her very relatable to the reader.
Of course, as in all the Olivia books I have read, there was a twist at the end. I went Awww this time instead of screaming profanity at the book (I am used to her books in The Edge Series), and that was a very welcome change. Olivia has proven to me once more that she is a true author, and that her talents are being executed and shared with the world in the best way!
