Genre: Romance Short Story
Rachel Turner made a mistake—a couple, in fact. Ruining a surprise meeting with the front man to her favorite band is just the beginning. But agreeing to switch places with her famous sister may spell the end of both of their careers. With rumors flying and an unexpected invitation from Madame Eve, Rachel hopes she can put the mistakes behind her.
Attending an event to support a charity close to his heart, Mark Travis wasn’t looking for love, or even company—and definitely not with a fan. But when he puts in a hasty bid at a silent auction and wins the services of 1Night Stand, Madame Eve has something different in mind. A single evening with a woman she claims can fulfill his needs. But one night might not be enough.
Come morning, will Mark and Rachel’s unexpected one-night stand give them more than they bargained for?
~*~*~*~*~ My Review
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When I started reviewing a little over a year ago now, I came up with a system for how to rate the books. Each reviewer is different on how they rate stories, but it's truly a personal thing. Short stories are a little harder for me to rate as there is less time in the story to meet all of the criteria that for me gives a book that wow factor that is awarded the 5 Star review from me.
Mark and Rachael's story has heartbreaking loss, that spark that catches your attention, relationships that are beyond touching and that special touch that tugs at the heart and leaves you with the warm afterglow. Books like this are what make me open book after book.
