One naughty woman…
The sweet, innocent blonde on the dance floor is way out of her league in this hot, singles club. And the minute Renzo Cesare recognizes that, his protective instincts step up to the plate while he tries to rescue her. If that means pretending to be Esme Giles’s blind date, well, so be it. But before he can escort her to safety, she starts whispering some not so innocent suggestions in his ear. How is a guy supposed to be noble when all he can think about is hitting the sheets?
One naughty man…
Esme Giles is turning over a new leaf-starting with a seduction. Sure, it’s a bold move for her reserved self, but one look at her sexy date and she’ll do almost anything to convince this hottie to spend a sizzling night with her. Too bad he’s the wrong man! But Renzo’s red-hot kisses convince her that she’s found the right man…for more than just a night!
And a bed that’s just right!
One Naughty Night was definitely that…naughty. When Esme agreed to a blind date with her neighbor’s nephew she never expected to meet Renzo Cesare and he never expected the prim and bookishly shy Esme to walk into his club.
Esme and Renzo. What is there to say about them but wow. Both characters were fantastic! I really loved Esme. I completely related to her. She fought to be independent, but was also fragile in a way. She wasn’t a complete moron, and could do things for herself, but I like how she discovered her backbone and self confidence, with Renzo’s help because he truly believed in her, and as a reader I believed that he believed in her. I also liked how she let Renzo take charge when she realized he was doing it not because he was a bully, but because he cared. Renzo was strong, sexy, and enjoyably domineering. I loved how the characters played off one another. Esme was able to see how strong she was because of Renzo, and Renzo was able to relax because of Esme. They brought out the best in each other. The romance between them was realistically paced and believable. Yes, it started out as a red-hot attraction and sex and the initial chemistry was sexually charged but it became much more than that and Rock executed it so well. The progression of Renzo and Esme’s relationship and emotions were spot on. I loved every minute of this fun and sensual ride!
I don’t want to go into too much detail about the love scenes because I want you to read them for yourselves because they are so delicious.
Rock also did a fantastic job in her descriptions. I could feel myself there, with Renzo and Esme, which seriously makes me want to visit Florida.
I will admit that I had a bit of prejudice toward Blazes because they are supposedly just sex scenes, and I was so very wrong. They are so much more, or at least this one was. One Naughty Night had steam and substance. After reading this book I wonder why I haven’t read more Harlequin Blaze novels, especially if they are all as fantastic as this one!
