The blurb: Jenna Delaney has her life all mapped out — work, fiancé, financial plan. But when the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve, Jenna’s best-laid plans disappear. Instead, she finds herself lip-locked with the hunkiest of all hot male strangers. And whoa, serious fireworks. The kind that makes a girl plan on how to get best laid!

Rick Sinclair is blown away by the sheer force of their chemistry, especially when they end up at his borrowed high-tech ‘smart’ apartment. Except that this apartment seems to know just how to set up a seduction because suddenly Jenna is in Rick’s bed. And this one breathless night could take them anywhere…

Standalone or series: Part of the Three Wicked Nights series, but can be read as a standalone.

The review: Jenna is with her fiancé at the same New Year’s Eve party they’ve gone to for five years when she catches him kissing an old acquaintance at the stroke of midnight. This woman isn’t alone, either – her boyfriend, Rick, who has a diamond ring in his pocket, also spots them. Jenna and Rick, both devastated by the betrayal, don’t want to stick around. After kissing each other, they flee the party and head to where Rick is staying – his friend Sam’s amazing apartment, which also features in One Sizzling Night. This apartment is technologically a marvel – mood lighting that automatically comes on, rooms that adjust the temperature to suit the individual, etc.

They’re snowed in, thanks to the blizzard outside, and Jenna tries to sleep but finds herself freezing in the bedroom she’s in. So she wanders into Rick’s bedroom and climbs into bed with him at his invitation, and the next thing you know they’ve found a very enjoyable way to heat each other up.

Once they finally leave the apartment, they realise they miss each other and don’t miss their exes, so they end their relationships and see if they can forge one together. Living in separate states makes it harder – she’s in Boston, he’s in Oklahoma. There is a bit of anxiety; he thinks she wants someone with a stable job, and as a professional storm chaser he has to leave at a moment’s notice at any time of the day or night. They meet up a few times for hot sex, but come to realise they want more.

I enjoyed this book more than I did the previous one, because I liked both Rick and Jenna. Worth a read.
