A one-night stand is supposed to end once the sun rises. Only it doesn’t always work out that way in this opposites attract and tortured hero romance.
Elise Hoover never expected this. She didn’t want to go to another party, but when her friend pulls her in, she somehow finds herself hiding in a corner with…him.
The smirking, so-called good guy with the shadows in his eyes. A single glance, a sweet smile, and she lets herself have one night of giving in.
Only she has to promise herself not to fall in love. No matter the cost.

What a promising start to a new series from the prolific and always creative Carrie Ann Ryan. And exciting to see a new contemporary, new adult, sweet and steamy series from her!
Dillion and Elise were only supposed to indulge in an unexpected one night stand- neither want anything permanent and are not entirely compatible on paper, but the chemistry is scorching, and from the first kiss, it’s clear it's going to be hard for this to stay a one night deal. Carrie Ann works in quite a few twists and unexpected moments that help catalyze these two leaning into their connection, as Dillon’s past and Elise’s present open up wounds old and new.
Both Elise and Dillion are likable and charming as characters, the chemistry is just adorable. Dillion is just a really good guy, even though he had a rough childhood that weighs on him. Elise has her own family pressures, entirely different than Dillion’s, and where Dillion has direction she feels a bit more lost. The story is quite sweet, with some heart-breaking moments, but these two find a charming sweet HEA. And, we get to meet a vast array of new series characters that I can’t wait to read more about in their own stories.
Note: There is a free prequel (On my Own) that is a great enhancement to this book and covers Elise and Dillion’s backstory, but the book can be read without it. Each book can be read as a standalone, but the characters are interconnected.
Dillon and Elise story was a nicely written college love story no insta love thank you
Their love grows slowly and they explore together step by step the building of their love
Neither of them is a star athlete or simply an athlete they are normal college kids struggling with paper awful books and exams
I really did enjoyed this story
Great side characters and sub plots
Four and a half well deserved stars
Thanks Netgalley for providing this ARC
A dare, a kiss and then a one night stand kick off this book. Students mixing studying, partying and new partnerships as they go through their university year. A male house and a female house with friends chatting and mixing together and sometimes falling in love. Some interesting surprises woven in as our couple try to get together and fight off their past and present demons. A good story, with some sad moments and some more tense moments that are woven together well.
