Reviewed for Read Your Writes Book Reviewed by Kim Sometimes a book just talks to you and insists that you read it. That’s exactly what A Night of Misbehaving did to me. Georgia Taylor and Brent Turner are acquaintances because their daughters go to the same preschool. Brent has the nickname of “Sexy Dad” among the mothers at the preschool and Georgia just doesn’t give him the time of day. Even a smile is too much for her. Things change for these two when Brent shows up at a bar pretending to be Georgia’s date. With the help of a coin and a “wild card” call, things between these two get better than they could ever imagine. Sometimes you just have to throw caution to the wind and follow your gut and/or heart. While I did enjoy this book, I was left wondering about a reality, which I guess I wasn’t supposed to pay attention to. Georgia and Brent are both single parents. Georgia’s ex isn’t in the picture, but Brent’s ex-wife is. I just see all kinds of problems with the triangle this relationship makes. I’m thinking a little awkward, if not uncomfortable, because at some point Georgia and Stacey will cross paths at preschool. I would have preferred if Stacey wasn’t in the picture at all. A Night of Misbehaving is a nice read with some memorable moments. I did find myself wanting more of the book. This is a happy for the moment romance. You have to use your imagination to assume there’s a wedding and a little one on the way. I know novellas are super hard for authors to write, but I think Carmen did a wonderful job. She now has a new fan. Source: Publisher

This is a lovely short novella about two people with more in common than they realise. SexyDad is Brent, a year into his divorce and still not quite making it on the dating scene. SuperMom is Georgia, a single mom ever since her boyfriend abandoned her when she was pregnant. For one night Georgia wants a chance to misbehave and she gets a date on an on-line site wanting to have fun for once. What she doesn't realise is that Brent recognises her picture and doesn't want his manwhore colleague anywhere near her. Particularly as he has dealings with her company. When Brent turns up on her date, Georgia thinks the evening ruined...but she would be wrong. This is quite a sweet story about two ordinary people who are given a second chance at happiness. The characters are easy to get to know even in this short format.

Really enjoyed this one! It's a short sexy read that kept me entertained. Great writing and character development considering it's a novella. I would have enjoyed a longer story with Georgia and Brent. I highly recommend this one!

When Super Mom (Georgia Taylor) meets Sexy Dad (Brent Turner) sparks fly. Their date turns out to be a life changer for the single mom and the divorced dad. Where do they go from here? In this smartly written story we follow these two passionate characters as they dare to take a risk on love. These two are amazing together. I enjoyed their passionate romance and smiled at their lively banter. A Night of Misbehaving is a entertaining read. Carmen Falcone does a wonderful job creating colorful characters searching for a HEA.

A Book You Will Want To Read Over And Over. I received a copy of this book from the publisher and the author in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way. Brent Turner meets Georgia Taylor at a bar. He wants a chance to get to know her better. They’re two people that have something in common. And things get interesting from then on. As you read this story, you will come to realize the title is a perfect fit. Our couple has an interesting date. I enjoyed their interactions from beginning to end. The good news is you can read this story in one day. Better news is you can read it over again. Best news is that as of this writing the book is currently on sale for only $0.99. Bad news is that I found that their story ended way too early. You also want to make sure to read the author’s acknowledgements – you will see what her inspiration was. I found that this was a great way to be introduced to an author that I have never read before. It’s also a great way to see what “imprints” this publisher has available. Once I was finished, I found that I’m looking forward to seeing what she has in store for her readers next. You can’t go wrong by adding this book to your library. And if you’re preference is the contemporary type of romance then this book will fit the bill.

Georgia is one super mom who is in dire need of adult time. A single parent with sole responsibility for her pre-school daughter, not to mention a successful career woman, she longs for some downtime. She wants to chill out in the arms of an understanding male who knows and loves women and wants to give her a good time. Hence, she resorts to internet dating. And internet dating springs some surprises. She finds herself looking at \Brent, aka Sexy Dad, a fellow parent whose daughter is the best friend of her own little girl at pre-school. It seems like a consequence free night is not on the cards. They are too closely connected, there could be repercussions. But what if one of them (or both of them) wants repercussions? A short, warm and witty contemporary romance by a talented author. Highly recommended for readers of romance and relationship fiction. A word of warning, though. This is because romance readers are quite diverse in taste and while some love to read hot and steamy, others prefer the more emotional sweet romances. Georgia and Brent's story reads like a sweet romance in places, but once they connect, there are a few explicit scenes and some rather graphic language. So if you love hot and steamy, go for it. If you prefer sweet and emotional, well, don't miss out, but you might want to speed read through the hotter scenes to spare your blushes. It's up to you. Carmen Falcone is an author who handles hot romance with skill. I'm giving her the full five for this one. I received an advance review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Even though her days are filled with her job and caring for her daughter as a single mom, Georgia Taylor knows something is missing from her life...a man, a companion, even a sexual encounter. Joining a dating site, she's gone on a few disappointing, meaningless dates, but when her latest date turns out to be Brent Turner, aka Sexy Dad, from her daughter's preschool, she's thrown into a dilemma. He's the father of her daughter's best friend, he cruelly rejected the sincere advances of her best friend, and her past experiences with men has been pitiful to say the least. If she gives in to the lust she feels, will she be able to face him when she meets him at her daughter's preschool without feeling shame or humiliation? Can she justify the breaking of the female bonding code with her friend for a sex- filled night of bliss, and then live with the consequences of that action? Would he be like her ex, running at the first signs of commitment or responsibility? She had chosen badly before. Could she trust her judgment this time? Successful with his gyms, Brent Turner wants to take his company to the next step, offering a corporate wellness proposal to businesses. Only the announcement of a date with Georgia Taylor, aka Super Mom, from his sleazy man-whore partner, Carl, derailed his carefully laid plans. He couldn't let his partner near her. One: her daughter went to his daughter's preschool. Two: she was HR Director at a company where he wanted to pitch the proposal and a disastrous date with Carl would ruin that. Three: She was a sexy, gorgeous woman he wanted for himself. So the die was cast. He would go in Carl's place. What could possibly happen on a simple no-strings date? Wasn't he capable of logically getting her vote for his proposal? Wouldn't he show her a better time than Carl? At least they would part friends, wouldn't they? Not if fate has anything to say about it! A quick read with just enough development of the characters to permit the reader to be fully engaged in the action of the story. A sweet romantic tale with a racier edge. Although there were a few explicit sex scenes, they were tastefully done. A sexy, hot short story about second chances and daring to hope for a happily ever after. I would recommend to any romance reader. A copy was given by the author for an honest review. 4/5 stars With a dream, a coin and an invitation, anything can happen.

Carmen Falcone is the next Sophie Kinsella. She portrayed Georgia Taylor and Sexy Dad as human being with hopes, desires, and flaws. Their flaws is what makes the book so entertaining and funny.A Night of Misbehaving kept me awake all night.

Single parents Sexy Dad and Super Mom end up on a blind date with each other by mistake... or was it?  Short and sweet, I enjoyed this read.  The reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is that I would have liked to spend more time with Georgia and Brent, but this book is exactly as advertised; an indulgence, a sexy little morsel of goodness. I was asked today if I would ever date another parent of a child mine went to school with.  That is the question, are we willing to take a risk?  It is a small world and it is hard to be a single parent, harder still to get back out there, where else are we going to meet people if not in our day to day lives?  Plus even if you go online as Georgia did, what are the chances of coming accross someone you know in say... 1 out of 4 or 5 dates? The author says this story is a place where readers can really relate to her characters... the only bad part is that you want more. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This was a short fun book, that can be appreciated by women with kids and those without. Georgia, a single mom decides she needs to date more and begins to go out. She ends up going out with "sexy dad"  Brent, a single father with agenda of his own.  This was a novella, but felt like a fully developed. Characters, dialogue and conflict is realistic and interesting. It is a great way to spend an a few hours!

A Night of Misbehaving is a must read! Carmen Falcone has a true gift of creating characters that draw you in and make you want to know more about them. Once I started reading A Night of Misbehaving I couldn't put it down. It was fun to see the preconceptions of "Super Mom" and "Sexy Dad" get crushed as Georgia and Brent discovered a deeper connection. I love that the story takes place in Austin, Texas. Carmen did a great job making Austin, Texas part of the story. A Night of Misbehaving is deliciously right!

Finally a single mom story I can relate to! The Night of Misbehaving is a cracking great short story which covered all of the emotions you usually only have time for in a full length story. Super Mum and Sexy Dad aka Georgia and Brent meet up on a date supposedly organised through internet dating but what Georgia doesnt realize is that Brent demands he go in the place of his sleezy business partner. Brent and Georgia know each other through their kids play group. Georgia is known as the super fast and reliable and organised mom and Brent is known as Sexy Dad among the moms because hes hot, actually hotter than hit really and totally single dad. Unfortunately when super mom realises who her date is shes ready to up and leave because Sexy Dad rejected her best friend without a second thought so caught between loyalty and total embarrassment about internet dating shes out the door! So why does Sexy Dad chase after Georgia and four chapter's later youre going WOW??? Well im not going to spoil it but lets just say there was lots of twists and turns and the heat had the story melting! A super fun read. I laughed and laughed at the authors humour. I was turning on the air con to cool the room down and I sadly sighed during the twists and turns. This story has the bones if a full lenth novel minus all the fill ins that make a full length story so youre left with the good bits and the parts you want to read. The story flowed and like the authors comments noted (yes im a book geek I read all the comments) this could totally happen, the characters are realistic. Thats why i could totally relate... We all want one night of misbehaving and the way Brent tried to recall Georgia's name was totally classic and very male hahaha. A fab short story which I would recommend to all and also made me want more from Carmen :) A Night of Misbehaving by Carmen Falcone is an April 2014 Entangled release which I was lucky enough to receive an ARC from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

Super Mom & Sexy Dad are Misbehaving I do love me some misbehavin’  - and this story delivers in spades.   If you’ve ever wanted to leave the kids with the grandparents and let your hair down for a night, this book is for you.  Start in a sultry jazz club, add dinner and dancing, and then really let your inhibitions take a hike.  I love that these two characters are both down-to-earth, responsible adults and dedicated parents.  It makes the fantasy night out even more fun.  Now, what will happen when they wake up in the morning?  Sorry, no spoilers here – you’ll have to read the book! Note: I received a copy of this book as a professional courtesy for the purpose of providing an honest review.

Sexy Dad meets Super Mom Received an ARC of the book in exchange for an honest review. Georgia and Brent were just the perfect mesh of fire and angst. Georgia is a single mother who just wants to have a good time for a nite away from all the pressures from her daily life so she joins a dating site just for that reason. what she did not expect was "Sexy Dad" from her daughters preschool to be her date. Brent runs a line of high end Gyms and is trying to expand in to healthy living branches and needs to get large businesses involved. When he sees his sleaze ball of a partner talking about an easy dates with a woman he realizes it is "Super Mom" and he decides to intervene in order to make a good impression so that the company she works for will go for his idea. Things do not go according to plan when both "Super Mom" and "Sexy Dad" realize that there is this spark between them that they just need to explore. I just loved this story so much. I just wish it was longer but don't we all when we read novellas. I wish we could see more from these characters and see how their "Night of Misbehaving" turned out in the long run.

There was just a little too much deceit in this one at the very beginning for my taste. I don't care how hot you are, if it ends up looking like you slept with me to get a contract at the place I work, I'm not going to forgive you easily. Perhaps if it had been a novel with more time for them to make up I would have liked it more.  I did like the characters. They were both very real - single parents just looking for someone that understands and they can have a good time with. It was nice to see such a realistic look at how they might find someone to connect with. They would have really shone in a longer format. I don't want to sound like I'm bashing novellas. I enjoy many of them, but some stories just need more pages and for me, this was one of them.  *This book was received in exchange for an honest review*

What happens when you see Super Mom looking all sexy on a dating website?  Brent Turner aka Sexy Dad  asks to trade places with his co-worker known as the man whore as her date.   Georgia Taylor is looking for a night of HOT sex.  She has a pitiful past with relationships and just needs to have sex.  Thinking that she is meeting an absolute stranger she is surprised when Sexy Dad shows up for their date. Are they able to keep it a one night stand or will their hookup be more?  You'll need to pick up this story and find out.  It is a quick read but definitely worth reading.  5 out of 5 stars from me.

This novella does pretty much what it says on the tin and focusses on the events of one night. One sexy, romantic night that actually manages to fit in many elements of a full length novel. Single Mum Georgia wants to let her hair down a little and have some no-strings fun. Internet dating brings Brent to her. For the sexy divorced Dad it's a business opportunity, but when he sees her, well the night is young and both are attracted to one another... Both were endearing characters; Brent is a gentleman and an über sexy one to boot and Georgia is a kind, thoughtful strong lady. It's short, but it's very sexy and was a great read. I could've happily read a full length novel on this couple. If you have an hour, it's the ideal read. I received a copy of this courtesy of Entangled Publishing for an honest & unbiased opinion
