I have nothing. I’ve lost everything. The man I loved stole it from me. The woman I was days ago no longer exists. What I believed to be true love is dead and buried. I’m leaving. Abandoning every reminder of the life I once had. I won’t need anything but shorts and flip-flops where I’m going. Alone.
Faith Owens ran away from life two years ago, losing herself in easy living on a small private island. Preferring carefree days as a bartender to the stressful haunting of her past, Faith chooses a life of isolation. A night like every other, she expects tips but she finds the one thing she isn’t looking for–Kyle.
Kyle Sommerton walks through life alone, a traveling soldier protecting others. Physically exhausted from the pitfalls of his career, he seeks a night of solace on a small private island off of the Florida Keys. A night of solitude at a beach bar, he expects a beer but he finds the one thing he isn’t looking for–Faith.
What happens when rules are broken and two hearts collide for only one night?
I’m just going to jump right in here with my review. ONLY TONIGHT started off strong, but the best word I can use to describe how I felt by the end would be ‘confused’. I won’t go into detail, but most of that confusion relates to the scam Faith’s fiancé, James, was running, and how she was left to deal with it on her own. I’m not sure if the author was going for a suspense feel to it, or if it’s just written in a way that confused only me. Not having a clear picture of exactly what happened and when frustrates me. And what exactly is Kyle’s job? He’s in protection of some sort with the government, but I don’t think his actual job was ever revealed. Is Kyle a character from another series by this author? Is this a spin-off? I just don’t know.
Sadly, ONLY TONIGHT was not what I expected it to be. I know the title suggests they’ll only have a single night, but it’s a romance novel, so I assumed their love would conquer all and they’d end up together. Spoiler Alert, that’s not the case, In fact, there’s not really a HEA when you get to the end. Their relationship is left hanging, so I’m not sure if this is a standalone or if it’s the start to a new series. Again, I just don’t know.
But I thought the chemistry between Faith and Kyle was hot and their dialogue was really well written, fun to read and quite amusing at times.
Kyle: “I said naked and wet. After a thorough inspection, I’ve verified naked, but I’ll need to complete a full systems check before proceeding.”
Faith: “Take your time. Quality assurance is important for customer satisfaction.”
