Goodreads Summary:
In Lauren Layne’s sizzling Sex, Love & Stiletto series, 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.



Lauren Layne delivers yet another sexy good time with Just One Night. This is my favourite out of the three I've read so far. I'm just a big sucker for friends-to-more stories and Just One Night had some of the best feels.

Riley is such a feminine force with her sassy attitude and brave demeanor. She had her share of fears but when she put herself out there she went all out. "But tonight wasn't about tomorrow." After ten years of keeping to herself she put her heart on the line and was determined to get an answer, favourable or not. I loved every action she took in pursue of her happiness. You go girl!

If Riley was a go-getter, Sam was a passive dumbdumb. He's one of the most frustrating love interest I've ever met in a romance book. I liked him for how loyal he was to the people he loves but I wanted to jump into the book and tell him to snap out of it. Too much time wasted on too many excuses. He really needed to man up and get over those silly insecurities already.

The Stiletto ladies are such a riot when they're all together. They all offer Riley a different kind of support- Emma is the expert schemer with Grace as the love advisor and Julie being the comfort-giver. All positive influences. I loved seeing these girls together.

Despite the title and synopsis of the book, Just One Night had the least amount of sexy times out of the current three stories in the series. There was less real heat and more sexual tension between Riley and Sam. The tension was still super hot and sometimes even adorable. It's flirting done right ;)

Oh how I wish the Sex, Love & Stiletto series never ends. I'm curious for Emma and Alex's story but I might just take it slow to savour the last of these characters and their good times! I highly recommend Just One Night for romance addicts with a penchant for friends-to-lover stories!
