Out of all the questionable decisions I have ever made, a one night stand has never been one of them. Casual relationships and friends with benefits, yes. One night with a stranger, no. You are welcome Mom and Dad, may you rest easier tonight (haha). So it really is no wonder why I am constantly drawn into trying to understand the logistics of them although they mostly end up the same way – never one night. However Noelle Adams did something different with Living With her One Night Stand.
With 202 pages, the plot is: Jill has never been good at taking risks, but she spends one hot night with a stranger, knowing she’ll never see him again. Then Lucas shows up the next morning as her new roommate. He was supposed to be a one-night stand, but now he’ll be living in the empty room in her shared apartment for the next six months.
Jill needs stability and a long-term relationship, and she knows Lucas can never give her those things. He’s looking for a life free of commitments or obligations. She knows he’s wrong for her. She shouldn’t want him for more than one night.
But she lives with him. He’s around all the time–with his hot smile and his hard body and the soft heart he pretends not to have. Not wanting him isn’t really an option.
My View: Could you imagine stepping out of your comfort zone and trying a one night stand just to have them show up on your doorstep the next day as your new roommate? Ya, me either. Many initial thoughts would go through my head. We’d start with “What the…” and just go down the list from there. Add in a scar from the past and it’s a situation that I wouldn’t touch in real life with a 10 foot pole, but thanks to this book I was able to experience it vicariously. Since I am very happily married, this is a situation I will never be experiencing. Probably thank god for that. Although this story does end with a HEA it is quite a journey along the way.
