“What the f*ck have I done?” aren’t the first words you want to hear after a one-night stand.
Yet, that’s what he gave me.

Dallas Barnes is tall, dark, and handsome.
He’s also scarred, rough, and broken down by burdens. 
A single dad. A widower. A lost soul.

We found each other in the back of a dark pub. 
He brought the whiskey.
I brought the bad decisions.
He called it a mistake.
I vowed never to speak to him again.

That vow is broken with one test.
Two pink lines turn my life upside down.

One night changes everything.

Where do I begin with Just One Night? Dallas is a single dad and though a few years have passed, he is still a wreck over the death of his wife. He became a master at single parenthood, perfecting everything from French braids to her favorite snack. But when it comes to his own heart, he has been unwilling to hand it over to anyone else.

I wanted to LOVE this book, but I only liked it. Part of it was the fact that it was written in first person, which you may have noted, is not my favorite. The story was compelling though, Dallas wakes up after a one night stand with Willow, cursing about what a mistake it was. How is Willow supposed to feel other than rejected? Humiliated?

Well she does, and later she has a lot more regret to feel, but I’ll let you read the story to get all those juicy details.

At the beginning of Just One Night, I had a very difficult time with both characters. Willow was kind of a doormat, complaining internally about what a jerk he was and then succumbing to his whims just as quickly. It didn’t endear me to her, and Dallas was a dick so they both had a long way to go warm me up.

But they did. When the story moved away from him being a bossy jerk and her just allowing it, the story got good. Really good. Dealing with moving on after death is a tough subject and Charity Farrell did a good job of straddling the line between making the reader understand his pain and rolling their eyes.

He had a lot to prove, and I was glad to see that Willow forced him to prove it. Mostly. I think she gave in a bit too soon, but that’s another fine line in the romance genre.

Charity Ferrell writes New Adult and Contemporary Romance. She resides in Indianapolis, Indiana. She grew up riding her bicycle to the town’s public library, and reading anything she could get her hands on.

When she’s not writing or plotting her next book, you can find her reading, spending time with her family, or shopping online. 

Just One Night is her ninth book.
