My Review: 4.6 Star Review - One Naughty Night Is she as innocent as she looks? Renzo goes to rescue a lady who he thinks is innocent but really is she? Esme is supposed to be looking for a blind date but Renzo is going to get to her before the date does!! What happens when you fall for the wrong man? It turns out some much better then you thought possible!! Funny with super steamy parts that you are going to love.
One Naughty Night is part of Joanne Rock’s Single in South Beach series; however, it can easily be read as a stand-alone. The story of Esme and Renzo moves quickly, but no so quickly that you don’t fall in love with the characters. It is fun to see Esme grow into her own strength and Renzo figure out how to be less overbearing. Together they make a great pair. The epilogue is a nice touch so you aren’t dependent on the next books in the series to catch up with this fabulous pair.
First of all, let me say, I want a Renzo! What a great hero! This sexy Italian guy isn't just a gorgeous body who falls for the heroine of the story. His family values and strong, protective instinct are just as attractive as his good looks. Joanne Rock amazingly brought the sweet together with the sensual and turned up the heat at just the right moments. Esme was a heroine I could relate to in her struggle to remain independent and strong, yet allow herself to let go and be vulnerable in order to fall in love with the right guy. I'll be rushing to snatch up the other books in this series and any others by Joanne Rock. This book earned Five Stars from me! I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
One Naughty Night was definitely that...naughty. When Esme agreed to a blind date with her neighbor's nephew she never expected to meet Renzo Cesare and he never expected the prim and bookishly shy Esme to walk into his club. Esme and Renzo. What is there to say about them but wow. Both characters were fantastic! I really loved Esme. I completely related to her. She fought to be independent, but was also fragile in a way. She wasn't a complete moron, and could do things for herself, but I like how she discovered her backbone and self confidence, with Renzo's help because he truly believed in her, and as a reader I believed that he believed in her. I also liked how she let Renzo take charge when she realized he was doing it not because he was a bully, but because he cared. Renzo was strong, sexy, and enjoyably domineering. I loved how the characters played off one another. Esme was able to see how strong she was because of Renzo, and Renzo was able to relax because of Esme. They brought out the best in each other. The romance between them was realistically paced and believable. Yes, it started out as a red-hot attraction and sex and the initial chemistry was sexually charged but it became much more than that and Rock executed it so well. The progression of Renzo and Esme's relationship and emotions were spot on. I loved every minute of this fun and sensual ride! I don't want to go into too much detail about the love scenes because I want you to read them for yourselves because they are so delicious. Rock also did a fantastic job in her descriptions. I could feel myself there, with Renzo and Esme, which seriously makes me want to visit Florida. I will admit that I had a bit of prejudice toward Blazes because they are supposedly just sex scenes, and I was so very wrong. They are so much more, or at least this one was. One Naughty Night had steam and substance. After reading this book I wonder why I haven't read more Harlequin Blaze novels, especially if they are all as fantastic as this one!
