I could not get enough of Brady and Joss! When I heard Her Forbidden Hero was going to have a sequel and that it was going to be Brady Scott's story, I just knew it was going to be good. I had no idea that I would end up loving One Night With A Hero even more! “This was a one-night-only deal. Exactly his style. He didn't do sleepovers.” Brady and Joss meet in a such a cute way. He turns on the charm from the moment he notices Joss, and he doesn't waste time figuring out how to spend more time with her. It all leads to her making a one-night-only offer to him. Be prepared, because things get hot and heavy right away! Their one night together becomes more when they find out they're neighbors! You see where this is going, yeah? Brady and Joss are so insatiable together! Their scenes together are super have been warned! “She wrapped her arms around his neck and held him close, surrendering to the hot chemistry that burned so brightly between them.” I really enjoyed getting to know Joss. She has quite a few tattoos, a pierced tongue, and pink hair highlights. She's quirky, lovable, and works with kids. Her heart has been broken too many times that, like Brady, she's got a wall around it. Brady's protective and possessive side can't help but surface when he's around her, but he's got a lot of anger issues. The overall storyline for One Night With A Hero is not original. We've seen it before, a night of giving into lust leads to something unexpected, and the guy can't back away fast enough. Kaye gives her characters a unique enough voice to set them apart from the rest. Combine that with her talent to create a love story so emotional that it tugs your heart, and a tortured hero that turns you into a puddle of goo, and you've got yourself one fantastic, satisfying read! I honestly could not get enough of Brady and Joss! My favorite parts? Well, I have too many! If I listed them all, I'd be describing the entire book. If you're wondering if Marco and Alyssa make an appearance, yes, they do! They are tied into the story very well. If you loved, Her Forbidden Hero, I'm sure you will enjoy One Night With A Hero as well. I think Kaye's The Heroes books just might be my favorite of her series. Her heroes are simply irresistible!

I loved Joss and Brady. Seriously hot, sexual tension and humor. I even cried a bit with them. This was my first Laura Kaye book and definately not my last.

This book was so much more to me than The Forbidden Hero, which i really enjoyed. Much much sexier and steamier, wow, and Brady? Wowza hotness! I loved their sexy banter when they first meet - you don't have to wait long for the sparks to combust with Joss and Brady ;) Joss is such a sweet and strong female lead - i couldn't get enough of how caring she was and how she stood her ground with him. The ending was so perfect.

## Loved this book. It was a perfect sequel to "Her forbidden hero" which I also loved! The beginning of this book was so fabulous. The way the hero and the heroine met and flirted was extremely sexy. I was smiling through the whole scene. I love it when you get to experience a couple meeting. Books in which the hero and heroine already know eachother and have history aren't the same for me. Brady and Joss were so good together, until of course the obligatory conflict. Brady treated Joss very badly and I had a hard time believing she kept forgiving him. Yes, he was hot, but for me Joss was the hero of this story. She shined and I adored her. A must read!

Reviewed by Cocktails and Books by Carin. Review copy received from Publisher for honest review. One Night With a Hero is the follow up book to Her Forbidden Hero but is a stand alone book, with a plot and story line independent of the first book. Brady Scott, United States Army; Special Forces, home on a two year assignment at the Pentagon to get his life together, his anger under control and get over his past so he can receive the promotion he has worked for. Brady has a lot of issues with his father over the way he and his sister were treated after his mother died. He doesn't go for attachments and when he needs sexual release a one night stand is the way to go. Joss Daniels an assistant director for a children's community center has her own demons from her childhood to fight, she expresses herself through her piercings, tattoos and the streaks of pink in her hair. She has always been left alone and isn't about to let someone close enough again for her to be hurt by their leaving. When she meets Brady and they have instant combustible chemistry she is all for a one night stand with the hot soldier. Brady is in a bad place emotionally when he meets Joss and she is able to help him forget all of that for a time, Joss feels the same instant attraction and after having had a really bad day up until the point she meet Brady she jumps at the chance for some hot sex! What starts as a one night stand turns into something much larger when Brady and Joss find out they are neighbors and also find it hard to fight the magnetic pull they have to each other. When Joss finds out she is pregnant Brady who was already at his emotional wits end says some pretty awful things to Joss pushing her away just the way she has always been left alone before. Can Brady make things right when he realizes how badly he has messed up? Can he get control of his own emotional issues before he pushes Joss and their baby away forever? Will Joss be able to forgive Brady and learn to trust when she never has before? Laura Kaye has an amazing writing style that allows you to bond with her characters, she writes them so that you know them, you feel them, you hurt with them and are happy with them. Ms. Kaye takes a pair of emotionally damaged characters and brings them together in a way that when Brady screws up you feel like you can reach over and smack him in the back of the head and then go over an comfort Joss. This story while having some blazing hot sex scenes in some wildly unusual places is still tasteful while being stimulating. One Night With a Hero is a novel you can jump in and be a part of. A very character driven story with very well written characters. We do have a few brief appearances from Alyssa and Marco (I am still totally in love with Marco!) that may provide very minor spoilers for Her Forbidden Hero if you don't read it first. I would say it isn't enough that it would be a big deal. I give One Night With a Hero a five cocktail rating!

New Favorite Author ~ Once in a great while, a book comes along in the tributary of exhausted, unoriginal romance troupes that overshadows all previous attempts - this is such a book. After reading only a couple of pages I was so in love with Joss that I decided upfront that it would be impossible to create a hero worthy of her. However, when Ms. Kaye designed Army Special Forces Sgt. Brady Scott, who supersedes the stereotypical egotistical hero &ndash; she did just that. The story is told with an unheard of amount of heart-wrenching emotion - even this jaded reader was squirming uncomfortably. There isn&rsquo;t any typical about this romantic novel, even though you knew how it would probably end (with a HEA); it had some interesting and often twisted ways of getting there.

This story starts off hot and quicky rushs through the HONEYMOON period for the two of them. I love that she held out for him to come around, even though she had to go through much of it on her own.

The difference between books and movies is that with each recurring novel, the writer gets better. I have not read Her Forbidden Hero, but One Night With a Hero was fantastic! It flowed smoothly and never missed a beat. I literally read it in one sitting, I really could not put it down!

So, so good. One Night with a Hero by Laura Kaye is so good. It is the second in The Heroes series. Laura's writing is so smooth and easy to follow. I don't normally like one night stand type books but this one worked. The characters are very likeable from the beginning.  I really enjoyed their easy dialogue with each other and how sure they seemed to be of themselves. Deep down, they were a mess, though. I feel like the cover police when I say this but the cover of this book does not do it justice.  I know sex sells so it is a big deal to have hot and sexy covers (so it appears anyway - I am no expert) but really, this book was not about the sex. There were intimate scenes in this book that were well done and moved the story along. They were not overly detailed or long. In fact the memories that stand out for me from this book are not the sex scenes. There is an oh so sweet gift-giving scene and a scene that happens during Halloween that melts my heart. Oh and there is a &quot;mutual&quot; scene that was a lot of fun (but I am not giving that detail away). Brady and Joss don't really know how to handle their relationship. They are attracted to each other in more than the physical sense, but neither wants to be vulnerable enough to open up and stick with the other. It is easier on their hearts if they keep each other at arm's length. Luckily, as this spirals out of control for Brady and he risks losing Joss because of the PITA he is, his sister Alyssa steps in and saves the day (one of the reason's I can't wait to read her and Marco's story - Her Forbidden Hero).  One Night with a Hero is a story about rising against the odds and learning who you can become if you allow yourself. It is about acceptance for who you are and allowing yourself to love completely. If you are looking for a sexy, intense, love story about real people, I highly recommend One Night with a Hero.

Another great love story! :) read Her Forbidden Hero first....

The chemistry between Brady and Joss is evident from the moment he lays eyes on her. Their bantering back and forth; the light heartiness with which they easily fall into, coupled with the heated passion makes for some face fanning moments. I was so happy for them when they finally found the bedroom. The crosses they each carry give the story depth. It not only explains why they have issues, but also makes them the perfect companion for each other. Keep up the good work Laura!

One Night with a Hero was delivered in true Laura Kaye fashion! I highly recommend it, it's one I would gladly read again. there is just something about Laura creates characters that I feel like I know them personally, and can actually miss them when the story is done. One of my favorite parts about reading books in a series is how you not only get to revisit previous heros and heroines, but you get to be part of the story for the supporting characters. The story contained everything a story needs to pull at all of your emotional strings just enough so that you feel what the characters are feeling. I felt my brows crease, and ached in my chest, tears in my eyes and a smile across my face. when a story does that it was done correctly. Brady is a brooding, broken man who feels that all of his issues can be blaimed on his terrible childhood. I fell in love with Brady in the few scenes we meet him in Her Forbidden Hero and couldn't wait till he fell in love too. Enter Joss Daniels, a snarky smarth mouthed independent woman who doesn't put up with peoples garbage (my kind of girl). She needs to be wanted, and he wants to be needed which should make for the perfect match, right? If not that, its the explosive chemistry that should keep them together....The problem is he can do lust not love, or so he thinks. If only he had figured it out before he ruined everything. It has a woman who has the ability to love regardless of her past, and her ability to see past a mans defenses and love him regardless. A man who doesn't realize he knows how to love and deserves it equally until he has shoved it all away. And most importantly, it has two people who realize that while having hope is frightening risk, its also a risk worth taking.

Laura has done it again! I must say that I am in love with her Hero series. I loved the characters in this story. From first glance Joss appears to be this tough girl with tattoos, piercings and pink highlights in her hair but deep down she's insecure. She was abandoned as a child and was sent through the system. Brady's childhood was even worse. His mother passed away when he was a teenager leaving both himself and his younger sister to deal with their father's down fall. He was abused a lot as a kid but he would prefer his father took his frustration and hurt out on him rather than his sister, Alyssa. The result of that has left him a very anger filled man. Both of these characters really had a lot of emotion behind them. They were not one dimentional characters, they were real and their story made me both laugh and cry. From the synopsis I thought that Joss was going to become pregnant right from the start. So imagine my surprise when I was halfway through the book, and she was still not pregnant. I thought maybe I read the synopsis wrong. The majority of the book is about the two of them feeling each other out and getting to know one another while dealing with their issues. It isn't until much later that the baby bomb drops. Which for me was sort of perfect because nothing felt rushed. These two characters had a one night stand, thought to never see each other again only to find out that Joss' new neighbor is the man from last night. They try to tread around the awkwardness while fighting their hormones for one another. There was no crazy love at first sight or instant soul mates. These two had a lot of issues to work out and in showing their vulnerable side, they built a connection with each other. I think Laura's Hero series is going to be one of the few series that I will actually keep up with. I usually get bored with them but so far we are 2 for 2.

Very good. Don't normally read books involving babies but Brady and Joss's story was good, had already read Marco and Allyssa's story. Would recommend.
