Sarah Madison loved working at Tate & Cane Enterprises.

While she looked and, for the most part, acted conservatively—she was a gladiator in the boardroom. The fast-paced, energetic work environment not only fed her need for corporate blood but also allowed her to work for one of her role models, Olivia Cane—living proof a woman really can have it all.

And after months of paying her dues, she was finally offered the promotion she’d been vying for. Which was great, except for the fact she had to share the position with a new guy they brought in especially for the role.

Kyle Drake was smart, experienced, and probably just as good, if not better, in negotiations. And if she wasn’t careful, prove he could do the job without her. Add in good-looking and an incredibly sexy smooth talker, and everyone in the office either wanted to be him or sleep with him. Which Sarah could have totally ignored if he hadn’t been the stranger she’d married in Vegas during a fake ceremony six months earlier.

He was supposed to be her one-night stand, a stand-in for a ceremony that wasn’t even legally binding. They were never even going to see each other again. Hell, she apparently hadn’t even known his real last name at the time. It was the only time she’d ever done something completely reckless and spontaneous.

It figured that one time would come back and bite her where it hurt.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

A One Night Stand-In was exactly what I needed!

Sarah finds herself alone with a pre-booked and paid for wedding in Vegas. In an out of character moment, she throws caution to the wind and decides to go on her own to Vegas. It’s here she encounters an amazing one night stand that ended up being an escape without commitment and a night she’ll never forget.

Imagine her horror when the one night stand turns up at her workplace. Her despair deepens when she discovers he has no qualms about making her squirm in front of her colleagues. As the outsider looking in, I thoroughly enjoyed his performance and his witty charm added the wow factor to the story 🙂

“Get comfortable.” I smiled, the tension in my body starting to ease slowly.

“This is one hell of a story.”

Having not breathed a word to Kennedy, her best friend and colleague, of her fake wedding, let alone the far from fake wedding night, she now has to explain what happened in Vegas. Kennedy, being the awesome friend she is, offers Sarah whatever support she needs to get her out of this awkward mess. Being the good friend she is, she reminds Sarah she picked a damn fine specimen to stuff up with!

Sarah’s attempt to ignore her personal attraction to Kyle at work provided a balance to his alpha antics. Her ability to know when to hold her ground and when to concede kept the story flowing well. The chemistry between Sarah and Kyle was electric. When one decided to strategically block the other, their frustration and counter-moves entertained me no end!

I am slowly embracing the value of a good novella. When time is limited, a quick read is the perfect solution. Ms Gephart is an author who has been on my radar for awhile and I’m wrapped I took the plunge, indulging in A One Night Stand-In 😉
