New York’s hottest “sexpert” has been living a lie—and it’s up to one man to keep her honest . . . all night long.
Riley McKenna knows sex – good sex, bad sex, kinky sex…Her articles in Stiletto magazine are consistently the publication’s most scandalous—and the most read. But Riley has a secret…all that sexy talk? Not an ounce of it comes from personal experience. Her own bedroom escapades are more limited than even her best friends know. When her editor requests that all columnists write something more personal for Stiletto’s anniversary issue, Riley turns to the one man she’s always been able to count on and calls in the favor of a lifetime.
Sam Compton would do anything for Riley McKenna. Anything except be her experimental sex toy. He refuses her request. At least until she tells him that it’ll either be him or she’ll go to someone else. And that, Sam can’t accept. Reluctantly he agrees to her terms—one night of completely meaningless sex in the name of research. Riley thinks she’s prepared for what awaits her in Sam’s bed. After ten years of writing about sex, actually doing it shouldn’t be that different, right? So wrong. What starts as “one time only” becomes “just one more time.” And then one more. And before they know it, Riley and Sam learn first-hand that when it comes to love, there’s no such thing as just one night.

This is the second book I’ve read of the Stiletto series and I have to say that it is by far my favorite so far. ( I still have 1 more to go ). Yes this book is technically the third book of the series but I have to say it didn’t hinder the story at all not reading book 2 first. This story was fun, funny, heartwarming and non put downable. It was a fairly quick read but definitely wasn’t rushed. This book made me smile and laugh quite a bit but it did have it’s heartbreaking moments too.
I am a total sucker when it comes to a friends to lovers type story and that is exactly what this was. I loved the history between Riley and Sam. I thought the author took their relationship at the right speed. There was just the right amount if push and pull that it didn’t frustrate me in the end. I also loved that the magazine was still used as the backdrop of this story. Riley and Sam were such great characters. Riley was fun loving and spunky and Sam just matched her well (even though I wanted to smack him at one point, but that makes a great story). This book I think had me feeling way more emotions then the other in the series because of the history between the two characters. The author really made you feel what they were feeling.
I loved the interaction between Riley, Julie, Grace and Emma. It was great seeing where they are all at and I am truly hoping we get Emma’s story too.
I would definitely recommend this book/series to anyone looking for that fun loving and overall feel good love story.
