I received an ARC of One Night by Camilla Stevens.

Stevens sets her multicultural romance off by not selecting the man to be a billionaire. Hallelujah! It was refreshing to meet a plain non-billionaire successful writer, writing under a pseudonym, without a long string of zeros after double integers in his account.

Celebrating the successful completion of his seventh book, Jake Cavanaugh is sitting alone, late after midnight enjoying his whiskey as Natalie Damond, a librarian, recovering from a broken relationship goes down to the bar to get a night cap.  Their encounter is precisely what she is looking for, and what was supposed to be a one-night stand turns into her becoming Jake’s muse as they satisfy each other’s sexual hunger.

There are some hot scenes in the book with very explicit sexual language, which may be offensive to some people, but I did not consider the book as being erotic.

What I specifically like was her timeline. Not everything happened in the twinkling of the eye. She took the time to let the relationship develop over months.

Also, unlike so many books, regardless of whether they are multicultural relationships or relationships dealing with two people of the same race and nationality, the book has a plot with a realistic story.

  1. I don’t read a lot of romance, but have noticed (with the ones I’ve stumbled into), they have much more plot and intrigue than I remember used to be there.
