I finally dipped my toe into the world of Meghan Quinn with her novella, The One Night. This was a super quick and steamy read where we’re introduced to childhood friends Cooper and Nora. Cooper is Nora’s best friend’s ex-husband that she runs into Cooper at a local dive bar when Cooper’s parents drag him out there to help him get back into the dating scene since his divorce a year earlier.
Each protagonist has their own set of unique characteristics and both face a moral dilemma when they find they are attracted to each other during this chance encounter. When they give into their temptations, they are forced to realize their repercussions.
This is the prequel to Quinn’s upcoming novel The Reunion releasing on February 22 where Cooper’s family is the main focus and one I look forward to diving into what promises to be a fun and wild ride.
Thank you Montlake for the advanced reader’s copy. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
Recently divorced Cooper Chance knows he’s officially in a rut when his parents take him barhopping in the hope of resuscitating his love life. At first, he’s skeptical. How could a gritty dive bar possibly solve his problems? But then he runs into Nora McHale.
Nora isn’t at the bar looking for love. She’s there to unwind after yet another exhausting day at her bakery. And even if she were hoping to meet someone, it sure wouldn’t be Cooper—her best friend’s ex-husband.
According to the unwritten rules of romance, Cooper and Nora are completely off limits to each other. But after a fun, flirty night at the bar, they can’t ignore the wild attraction between them.
Is this the beginning of something real, or will their passionate night together be their one and only?
