A flirty, sexy contemporary romance from bestselling authors, A.L. Jackson and Rebecca Shea . . .
Kaylee Rose Burton, kindergarten teacher, has never been a believer in fantasies.
Living in L.A. her entire life, she knows the glitz and glam of Hollywood is just an illusion.
That is until she stumbles head first into the arms of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor.
It was just another day for Paxton Myles on the red carpet until the blue-eyed beauty literally stumbles at his feet.
A single glimpse in her innocent eyes and he knows he has to have her.
After one night of unbridled passion, Kaylee slips away to live her quite life, but the paparazzi has other ideas.
When Kaylee’s world comes crashing down, can Paxton convince her that their one wild night could turn into forever?
One Wild Night is a fun, light, quick read. In a huge step away from their usual fare, this book is light – but not completely devoid – of the heavy angst and deeply emotional themes we usually see from both of these authors. It was obvious as I was reading they had fun writing this book, the joy of the process shown through in the writing.
One Wild Night is the first book in a series of crossovers expected from AL Jackson and Rebecca Shea called the Hollywood Chronicles. They are purported to be a series of interconnected standalones, and I am so excited to see what is to come. One Wild Night is written in dual first-person perspective, narrated by Kaylee and Paxton.
This couple, Kaylee and Paxton had great chemistry. I’m a sucker for a celebrity falling for a ‘normal’ person, so this was right in my wheelhouse. Paxton was the highlight of the story, his persistence and the way he cared for Kaylee when she was so hesitant to pursue more than a single night with her celebrity crush endeared him to my heart.
The plot was fun and moved quickly. It wasn’t hugely revolutionary, but that is what makes these kinds of books, so fun to spend a few hours with on a lazy weekend. While this was a short read, it didn’t feel lacking in any way, sure it was insta-love, but it totally worked for this book. I appreciated that Ms. Jackson and Ms. Shea still added a sprinkling of angst and emotion into this book, it kept One Wild Night from feeling too light to have come from such heavy hitters.
I love that two of my favorite authors, AL Jackson and Rebecca Shea, came together to collaborate on this novel and series. I always love both of their books and getting a little of each of them in one place is a dream come true. I do hope that eventually, they write something heavier because I can only imagine how deeply they could destroy me if they minds to it.
