Amanda Martin has the worst taste in men. After being cheated on not once, but twice, she's lost all faith in men ... and in herself. Determined to regain her confidence, Amanda decides to have a one-night stand. No relationship, no promises, no threat of being hurt again ... just hot, indulgent sex. What she doesn't anticipate is meeting a handsome-as-sin stranger who gives her pleasure unlike she's ever known.

Joe Sterling has spent his life avoiding the relationships his former career hadn't allowed for. He's come home to Texas to let go of the past and prove he's more than the killer he was trained to be.

When Amanda's life is threatened, Joe's instincts are tested while Amanda struggles to protect her heart. Will they succumb to their overwhelming desire, or lose it all by letting the past dictate their future?

## Fabulous read. Short but oh so sweet. I adored both hero and heroine. They were amazing together. Their chemistry was palpable. And the sex? HOT, hot, hot. Albeit a tad short (107 pgs), i didn't feel the characters lacking. Would definitely read again.

Amanda met Joe and wanted a one night stand, but things changed between them. Joe knew Amanda's brother Caleb and her other brothers seemed to like Joe right away. Joe had to overcome some things with Amanda, but these two had such a chemistry. I loved this book. It was well written and I enjoyed learning about Amanda and Joe's family and friend Sam. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Amanda Martin has three older brothers who are overprotective brutes, and after being cheated on not once, but twice, she goes to her family ranch an hour away to get away from all the men in her life. Determined to regain her confidence, Amanda decides to go to the local bar, as per the advice of her bestie and have a one-night stand. Just sex, no relationship and then walk away. Amanda has no idea what hot, monkey-sex is like but, on meeting a handsome stranger who gets her motor running, she's more than willing to give it a try. What she doesn’t anticipate is the pleasure unlike anything she’s ever known and one night turns into four. Joe Sterling has avoided relationships, his former career as a military sniper didn't allow time for them. He came back home to Texas to be close to his brother and to let go of the past and to prove he’s more than the killer he was trained to be. Joe has bought a bar and his brother helps him to run it. In walks a woman with attitude and the talent to defend herself. When she propositions him, he can't help but go with it and see where it leads. But when Amanda’s life is threatened, Joe’s instincts are tested, Amanda struggles to protect her heart from hurt again. Will they sink to the overwhelming desire, or swim by letting the past dictate their future?

It’s a great story with a little of everything along with some very hot sexy controlling men who won’t take no for an answer and women who won’t give in easy. There is a story inside a story that holds your interest and sets up the next book in the series that I am looking forward to reading. The author gives you some very hot heated scenes along with some suspense, a touch of humor that will have you laughing. Amanda just can’t seem to find the right men in or out of bed. The last little cheat has her running for the hills taking some much needed times for her self. She stops in a bar for a drink which leads to two men that decide she is going to be their desert. Having three older brothers who taught her how to take care of herself leads to a very entertaining fight where Amanda shows her moves breaking the dudes nose. Things do not end there when the bars owner walks in and is taken back by this sexy, smart mouth tornado. She puts the moves on him and he takes her up on it. One night is not enough as they get wild and kinky, along comes some unwanted company which leads to an exciting fun read. There are misunderstandings between these two both scared and unsure of the other. Each say things they do not mean but all that changes when Amanda is pulled into danger which leaves her life hanging in the balance. Can Joe get to her in time, can Amanda stand her ground and hold her own? Amanda finds Joe controlling, sexy and her cup of tea. Joes finds her sexy and has no trouble finding her something to do with that smart mouth of hers. He has some fast talking to do when her brothers step in trying to take their little sister back home. It is one heck of a standoff when you have two alpha males in the room. The romance is hot and melts right of the pages. The suspense is interesting holding your attention, the characters are hot, alpha and very hot tempted which is really a turn on when you look at the whole package. I can hardly wait to read the story of her older brother and her best friend. I do believe it is going to be a hot exciting read. I don’t think you will be bored reading this it is very erotic to the point it becomes a trust issue. How much does Amanda trust Joe, will she do the erotic things he wants. I really liked Amanda and her friend both are very sassy independent women trying to make it in a very alpha world. Neither is giving an inch and are making their own demands. The cockiness between the characters is such fun the author really has outdone herself with the smooth way it is delivered. I would have liked to have seen more background which would pull the reader in more. The story moves fast and easy, giving an exciting read. I totally enjoyed it.

Joe will pull you in with sexual desire and make you feel satisfied with his alpha hotness! He's demanding, bossy, and downright remarkable! I won't give too much away, but know this... this is one of the best sex scenes I have ever had the privilege of reading! Joe is use to always having and keeping the upper hand and in control. Then comes Amanda! The dialogue flows flawlessly and the characters are excellent!

I enjoyed this book very much. It had romance, humor as far as the characters are concerned and some drama making you wish the story did not have to end. Well worth the read.

Good new writer!  I am excited to have found this new writer, Parker Kincaid.  This book as a kick ass heroine who holds her own against a super sex ex military man.  Joe is great and knows a good thing when he sees it and seizes it.  Our heroine has some abandonment issues but these are reasonable and otherwise is a fierce and appealing heroine.  The secondary characters who will clearly be getting their own books are lively and compelling. There is a nice thread of humor that makes  the action adventure parts of this story work well.  The erotic aspects of the book are good. We do have some superhuman stamina going on here but hey its a fantasy.  This was a good book. There are some ways is could have been excellent.  I would have liked more of Joe's backstory. We get something of his military time and little of his childhood but that is it.  I would like him to  have some other interests. The heroine backstory in terms of her awesome job needs much more flushing out and showing up. She is a hacker. This is so cool!  However, we are just told she is very good with computers and not shown nor do we see this techie part of her in the story.  I am looking forward to the rest of the series.

Applause for One Night Stand My Thoughts: This book was provided by the author for an honest review. Amanda Martin is a loser at love. Two of her recent relationships, dissolved by cheating exes, leave her with an abundance of mistrust, fear, and insecurity — convincing her to swear off relationships and love. Love smove! Her best friend Samantha suggests that she doesn't need love BUT she does need a man — for a one-night stand, that is. After relationship number one ends, Amanda is resistant to the suggestion; however, the end of relationship number two leaves her more than receptive to the idea. Amanda decides to do it...quite literally. She leaves the city for her family's retreat home nestled in the woods an hour away. One Night Stand opens with Amanda stilling her nerves and preparing to enter a bar in search of her one-night lover. But, what she actually ends up finding is true love. This story was a most enjoyable read. It was short, sweet, and oh so very sexy. Amanda and Joe were very likable, separately and together. Amanda was strong and confident but had an air of vulnerability that made her relatable and interesting. Joe...*dreamy sigh*...was the total package. He was sexy, sweet, and 100% drool-worthy alpha male. I appreciated how Ms. Kincade evolved Amanda and Joe's relationship from one-night to love. Although Amanda was resistant and hesitant, Joe was steadfast and consistent, even after receiving a painful blow to his heart from her. Amanda's best friend, Samantha, and her three brothers Caleb, Brandon, and Alec *who were also to-die-for* were interesting and supportive elements in the story. Samantha was witty, sarcastic, and absolutely hilarious. She made me laugh...a lot...especially when she referred to Amanda's brothers with her derisive moniker, "the horesemen". The brothers, especially Caleb, were very alpha, protective, and overbearing to both Amanda and Samantha. Caleb and Samantha are always at odds with each other and the sexual tension reverberating between them leaves the reader wanting to know more and what happens next. One Night Stand was a delightfully sexy story with engaging characters, a well thought out plot, and a fantastic introduction to what promises to be an amazing series.

You find out that the man you've been dating is sleeping with his secretary. You've become a cliché. What's your next step? That is, aside of from the obvious first step of calling your best friend and get rip roaring drunk. Step one: Get drunk... check Step two: Take some time off. Get away from the family. You love your big brothers, but the horsemen of the apocalypse cannot know what happened just yet. check Step three: Allow your best friend to convince you that what you really need is a hot meaningless one-night stand with a stranger. check Step four: Walk away, no strings attached, now waiting for a phone call and definitely no expectations. Well, I guess three out of four isn't bad. However, when you add three incredibly hot, overbearing older brothers, also known as three of the four horsemen of the apocalypse and a one-night stand that is anything but, you have the makings for a recipe for disaster. I am nothing if not a sucker for a story with a hot alpha male and independent heroine that know how to kick butt. So it should come to no surprise that I loved Amanda and Joe. I have to admit to having my doubts during that first chapter. Amanda came across as whiny and quite a defeatist, the complete opposite of what I like in my heroines. Luckily though, this turns out to be an abnormality for Amanda. Having grown up with three older brothers, a girl learns how to take care of herself and this sexy, Harley driving, ex sniper is the perfect rebound relationship for Amanda. With likable secondary characters, a great storyline and incredibly steamy scenes, One Night Stand is a must not miss. Ms. Parker may be new to the scene but I can guarantee we'll be seeing a lot more from her.

If you like erotic romance, then you need to read Parker Kincade’s One Night Stand. Seriously, this story was just fantastic. I thought about quitting my job so that I could get home quicker to read more of the book. I also got a chance to connect with Parker on Twitter (read: I’m a stalker) and there are three more upcoming books in the series! She told me which one is next, but I’m not telling you until you read this one. Parker was very nice and I hope to get to know (stalk) her more in the future. I will probably also bug her until the next book comes out. Seriously, this story was that great. Oh wait, you probably want me to talk about that? Sheesh! Ok, this story is about Amanda, and she has just been cheated on again. Her BFF, Sam, convinces her that was she needs is a one night stand to get her fires burning again. After a little bit of debate Amanda heads off to a hole in the wall bar in Texas in search of just that. The scene is not exactly what she pictured, and she is about to leave when Joe Sterling (my new book boyfriend, so back off) enters the scene. Holy Hotness Batman! Joe has got it going on. Tall, dark, sexy, a bit of a bad boy, and able to clear a woman’s head of any rational thought with just once burning stare. “A voice, low and full of menace, drifted from behind her just seconds before she felt him. Well, not so much felt as sensed. Like a rabbit would sense it was about to become coyote kibble.” Joe is “over six feet of powerful male”. Just like I like em’! Jet black hair, blue eyes, and built like a mofo. And on top of that he is a straight shooting good guy. He isn’t playing games, and he stands up for the things he believes in. He’s a bit domineering, a great sense of humor, and a libido to rival any leading man. Am I gushing? Well, read the book and find out why!! Sheesh, again! Wait a minute, I’m sensing a trend that my review is mostly about Joe. Ok, let me try to pry my imagination and brain free from him to tell you about the rest of the story. So Amanda meets Joe and sparks fly. But sparks is putting it lightly. More like the biggest show of Independence Day fireworks you’ve ever seen. And one night stand turns into several days. And those days are filled with some hot and steamy scenes that are just delicious. And then there is the addition of Amanda’s older brothers, who are a lively bunch. You instantly fall in love with her family and can see why they are so tight. And we can’t forget her friend Sam, to whom there is so much more than meets the eye. I look forward to getting to know her more in upcoming books because she seems like much more than a handful with a heart of platinum. This story has a lot of fun in it. You can tell that Parker Kincade has a great sense of humor because her writing shows it. Amanda is quite cute; her mouth keeps talking with no attachment to her brain. She is definitely one of those women whose mouth gets her into trouble one way or another. And then there are a few dramatic scenes that will definitely get your heart pumping. Pretty much I can guarantee that Parker Kincade has a new and loyal fan in me. Her writing is fantastic, and I am not-so-patiently waiting for more. Ok, one more quote about Joe. “The dominance that bled from his voice made her stomach clench.” Seriously, don’t we all want a man like that? Heck, I know I do!
