One Night Forever by Lisa Renee Jones


A Modern Day Fairy Tale! Who doesn't want their own Prince Charming?

She's a struggling good girl taking care of a sick mother. He's the hot one night stand that she dared indulge in a year before...and now he's her sexy, rich new boss.
Book 1 The Cinderella Chronicles -- 55,000 words

Lauren Reynolds' obsession with the sexy, cutting edge soap opera "Red Hot Secrets" used to be her hottest secret. But now she has a bigger one. More daring. More dangerous. One year ago, on a sultry summer night, she slept with a stranger. But not just any man, one who later turned out to be her boss.Fate has thrown Lauren into the arms of a man who takes her to the absolute edge of passion, but will he destroy her career in the process? She knows she should turn away from temptation, but she convinces herself she deserves just one more night...over and over again.And now, her red hot secret might steal her heart.

The conference room door opened and a man appeared in the entrance. Tall and broad with raven hair, he stood there, taking in the room, dressed in a tailored suit, and an aura of power. His presence transformed the mood of the group, electricity suddenly darting around the table.

Lauren couldn't breathe because there was no question this was her one-night stand. Her stranger. Her Matt was Matthew Monroe and her new boss. This couldn't be happening. It was an absolute nightmare. She softly inhaled and then discreetly exhaled.

Even more potent than she remembered, his presence wrapped around her like a tight glove. A comparison came to mind... He reminded her of a tiger on the prowl, a businessman with money and purpose. His fluid movements were both confident and menacing. Everyone in the room seemed to sit up an inch higher in their chairs.

And she remembered their differences. Though she was a competent businessperson, they were from different worlds. If he was caviar, she was a sardine. Tyler greeted him with a smile. "We were just talking about this great opportunity you maneuvered for us."

The room filled with cheers but Lauren couldn't participate. She felt like melting into the ground or bolting. Yet, escape without recognition simply wasn't possible. As if driving the point home, Tyler focused on Lauren. "Matt, let me introduce you to our new associate. This is Lauren Reynolds."

The moment of truth had arrived.

For what felt like a lifetime, Matt stared at Lauren, yet, his face showed no emotion. Her chest tightened as a flash of memories played in her mind. Of him touching her. Pleasing her. Tasting her. His eyes darkened and she knew he was thinking the same things. Destiny had played a nasty trick on her. Really, on both of them. Her one night of pleasure had come back to haunt her. Like a punishment for living a little.

Then, abruptly he walked toward her, a predatory gleam in his eyes. Without any options, she turned in her chair to watch as he stopped beside her.

About the Author

Booklist says: Jones' suspense truly sizzles with an energy similar to FBI tales with a paranormal twist by Julie Garwood or Suzanne Brockmann. Alpha, military, and paranormal romance readers will want Jones' entire series. (About the Zodius Series -- Storm that is Sterling)

In 2003, award winning author Lisa Renee Jones sold her Austin, Texas based multi-state staffing agency and has since published over thirty novels and novellas across several genres. Her staffing agency LRJ Staffing was recognized many times by The Austin Business Journal and also praised by Dallas Women Magazine. In 1998 LRJ was listed as the #7 growing women owned business in Entrepreneur Magazine.

Her debuts with Blaze and Nocturne hit Bookscan's Top 100 list and her Blaze Hotzone trilogy made a showing on the list in 2011 also. With a new Blaze trilogy, a short story for Spice, the third book in her Zodius series published with Sourcebooks, as well as an rapidly growing indie following, 2012 will bring many new stories to her readers.

I loved this book. I loved how just a kiss could light my arousal on fire. THAT is very hard to do. But i'm only giving this book a 4.7 1/2 the main character annoyed the crap out of me. My favorite part is when they meet again. I could not stop laughing. I said out loud, " oh, that sucks! That's what you GET for runnin' out on him like that; should've known he'd come back to bite you in the ass in the WORST possible way!" My boyfriend then asked me what i was talking about, and i told him. He laughed, too. This book is really good and GET IT!

Couldn't put it down...just enough sizzle, hot sex and heart to make this a real page turner. Think I might be dreaming about Matt tonight!!!

## Loved this book. It was remarkable. The first sex scene between the hero and heroine was stunning. Their chemistry was absolutely intoxicating. I did like the heroine but to be honest, the star of this book was definitely the hero. He wasn't just hot, he was "holy sh*t" hot. Note to authors everywhere: here's how to write a perfect hero. He (and the sex) can be dominatingly alpha and still be kind and tender. My only complaint is the ending. Much too abrupt for my liking. But the rest was so exquisite I still gave it 5 stars.
