Overview

Sloane Redding is the shy one, the timid one. The morning of her wedding, she's dumped by the man she'd thought she'd spend the rest of her life with. Humiliated, she turns tail and runs, leaving Nowhere, Alabama for a job in the city. Sloane sets out to remake herself. She succeeds...on the outside. On the inside? Different story. She still the shy Redding. Still quiet, still more interested in standing on the standlines. But all of that is about to change.

The night before her brother's wedding, she strolls in the lone bar in Nowhere wearing wicked red and she's got one goal in mind: to show her ex-fiance just what he lost.

The night before his best friend's wedding, D.B. "Boone" Cassidy walks into the lone bar in Nowhere, Alabama with one goal in mind. Get wasted. Former military, he's spent the past few years as a security specialist and all around troubleshooter. It should have been easy to spot the trouble that night...a sexy woman in wicked red. It should have been easy. Yeah, right.

One thing leads to another and his plans to get wasted turn into a night with the sexy woman in red . Boone gets the shock of his life the next day when he shows up at his friend's wedding to find out he'd just spent the night wrapped around his best friend's little sister...and that isn't the only surprise.

Includes a bonus story, Tempt Me

The first thing you should know is that The Virgin’s Night Out encompasses about 60% of the book; the “bonus story,” Tempt Me accounts for the other 40%. So rather than getting a novel and a short story (which is what I expected), I got two novellas – but I’m not complaining. In true Shiloh Walker style, both novellas provided a satisfactory resolution to their respective (and unrelated) storylines while leaving me wanting to know more about each of the couples featured.  The Virgin's Night Out is exactly that – Sloane Redding’s last night out as a virgin. Granted she didn’t go out that night with the intent of losing her virginity. Rather she went out to show her ex-fiancé what he missed out on by dumping her right before their wedding. I am pleased to report that she did so splendidly and did the jilted ladies of the world proud when she gave him what he deserved after he refused to accept her brush-off. Equally enjoyable was Boone’s reaction to Sloane’s ability to put her ex in his place. As the reader, already knowing that Boone and Sloane hook up without telling one another their names and that they are destined to meet the next day as members of Sloane’s brother’s wedding party did not diminish the entertainment value of those scenes one iota. The chemistry between Sloane and Boone was intense and made Sloane’s reactions toward the unpleasantness that became Boone’s life feel real. The twists and turns that Ms. Walker included kept the novella moving forward and left me wanting more of Sloane and Boone’s story (hint, hint). The bonus story, Tempt Me, is a tasty little BBW romance that left me wishing I owned a corset. The fact that the “mean girl” gets her comeuppance merely added to my enjoyments of the steamy little novella that left me jealous of Rocki’s creativity, self-confidence, and man. Much like in The Virgin’s Night Out, Ms. Walker gives readers a few twists and turns that kept me glued to my Kindle as I raced to the end to find out how it was going to play out. As much as I enjoyed Rocki and Cole’s story, I WANT MORE! Well done Ms. Walker. I loved both of these novellas and look forward to reading them both again.  I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.  Reviewed by Angela at Crystal's Many Reviewers!

**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review** Sloane Redding was supposed to have been married six months before on Valentine's Day to Rodney, but he backed out. Boone "DB" Cassidy's two best friends were twin brothers Pierce and Taylor Redding, whom also happen to be Sloane's brothers. All three had been working for DDX Security Specialists. Pierce had been killed on a mission. After that, Taylor quit. Now Taylor is getting married and even though he doesn't want to attend the wedding, he still does because it's the last friend he has. Huley's is the only bar in Nowhere, Alabama. Sloane walked in to the bar to show her new self off, but then Rodney wouldn't leave her alone. Sloane hit him, but he wouldn't take the hint so Boone stepped in. She offered Boone a drink and dance and ended up in his hotel with him. I really enjoyed the book, other than wondering if her brother's name is Tyler or Taylor (a grammatical error that continues throughout the book). There were a number of grammatical errors throughout the book, but still very enjoyable.

The Virgin's Night Out by Shiloh Walker is one really fun, smoking hot, dramatic story. I really enjoyed this book.  Sloane Redding is a little shy and really not all that out going. However when she has to return home for her brother's wedding she lets her hair down a little bit and goes just a little wild. Sloane puts on her sexiest outfit and heads out to the local hang out with hopes of giving her ex an eyeful of what he is missing out on.  Oh my does she ever give him an eyeful, he checks out her new outfit and she checks out his face with a nice punch! Then Sloane is rescued by a handsome stranger. There is an instant attraction between Sloane and her handsome hero. Things quickly ignite  between them and they are in for some fun.  HOWEVER, the next morning is just a little bit on the awkward side. Sloane finds out she just spent the wildest night of her life with her brother's best friend Boone Cassidy. Oh my.... After their wild night together and a few awkward moments at the wedding the split and leave things at that. Then Boone goes on another mission. Poor Boone is captured and tortured. This guy goes through so much and loses so much including a lot of his memories. Boone really is a great guy. He has a lot of emotional things from his past to overcome. Now Boone goes through so much while he is in an enemy prison.  Once he is rescued he returns to the states and stays with his best friend to get back on his feet. Sloane has a few surprises for him. I really enjoyed watching Boone get to know Sloane again and slowly remember what happened between them. One of my favorite story lines is friends turned lovers. They have a nice base to add a deeper relationship.  I don't want to spoil anything for anyone, this story is too good to spoil. You will want to find out all the details yourself when you read it. I will say there is a lot of drama, some great steamy scenes, a lot of emotion, a lot of stress waiting to hear news of Boone, a few secrets that are revealed slowly, and just really one heck of  a storyline.  Shiloh Walker always amazes me with her great talent. She has such a wonderful way of writing an intriguing story that always keeps me captivated and glued to my seat. She creates really great characters that you can't help but cheer for when things go well and cry for when things go wrong. She has done a great job of telling Sloane and Boone's story.  I have Shiloh Walker's next release in my to be read pile. I can't wait to get to it. I know it will be fabulous. Her books always are.  I was given the opportunity to read this great book so that I may share my thoughts with you. As always it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you on The Virgin's Night Out.

This is a fun surprise baby story. I had some issues at the beginning trying to figure out why Sloane is still a virgin at her age and who the hell is Pierce. Both get explained but until they do it distracted me. After that you have to just hang on for the ride. Whatever can go wrong does but when things go right it is a steamy good time. I’d read the bonus story before but it was fun to reread.  Complimentary copy provided by author/publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.

Boone gets the shock of his life the next day when he shows up at his friend's wedding to find out he'd just spent the night wrapped around his best friend's little sister...and that isn't the only surprise. Includes a BONUS story, Tempt Me. My Thoughts Sloane Redding is in her early 20’s, she has always done the right thing, been the good girl and played it safe. Doing so has meant that she was jilted on her wedding day, told by said ex that she just did not have enough going for her to keep him interested. So what does a girl do when thrown over for someone else, she decides to show her two timing ex exactly what he let go and what he can no longer have. Sloane has one goal when she returns for her brothers wedding in their hometown of Nowhere, Alabama and that is to find a way in which to make her ex-fiance Rodney drool. Wearing a sexy red dress, killer heels and her new attitude Sloane finds satisfaction when  Rodney falls for the bait and makes his approval clear to the point she has to actually fend him off when no does not work. Boone Cassidy is in Nowhere for the wedding also, unbeknownst to Sloane he is one of her brothers former military comrades and also a good friend that she has heard about for years but never met. After watching the altercation with Rodney and Sloane, as his attention had been snagged upon seeing the flaming red dress worn by the first woman that truly caught his eye in a very long time, Boone finds himself ON THE DANCE FLOOR with Sloane in his arms. The overwhelming attraction between the two of them becomes harder to ignore as she turns up the heat and Boone soon finds himself spending the night with a woman whose name he does not even know. After that one night when the two find out the next day who each other is Sloane pretends to be a stranger when her brother introduces them, Boone is torn but goes along. After the wedding the two go their separate ways but neither can get the other off their mind. In Sloane’s case forgetting Boone will be near impossible for the consequences of her one night of recklessness result in a reminder that cannot ignore. This is a story of longing for family, both characters have had to live with the shadow of either neglectful or abusive parental figures and now their inability to trust is at the core of the one of the main stumbling blocks that keep them APART for so much of this tale. Boone and Sloane both want the same thing, love and family but are not sure if they will ever find a way to making that long cherished dream come true. As the story progresses things happen that come between the couple that even they could not predict, however fate plays strange tricks on us sometimes and when almost a year later they are reunited in Nowhere it is like they are given a second chance. A chance that may or may not work out depending on how one startling revelation for Boone causes him to either stay or run! The Virgin's Night Out will punch you in the GUT where it hurts, it will make you laugh, it will make you scream at both Boone and Sloane as they err on the side of caution over and over and in the end it will make you sigh with happiness that there is hope for a bright future to come.

The Virgin's Night Out is the first book I have read by author Shiloh Walker. From the title and synopsis, I thought the story was going to be a sweet yet spicy read. It was all that and much more. It is an angsty love story, with some hot romantic scenes and characters that I really wanted to get to know. Sloane and Boone meet for the first time at a local bar the night before Sloane's brother's wedding. Sloane is the maid of honor and Boone is the best man. Believe it or not, they have never met each other until that weekend. Their sexual chemistry is off the charts and they end up spending the night together. I disliked Sloane the moment she decided not to tell Boone about her problem. There is a good chance he may have taken a safer job, if he would of known about her predicament. However, she redeemed herself over time. I am not a fan of romantic suspense or any type physical torture, and I would never request a book with those elements. So imagine my surprise when Chapter Nine was all about that. The scene was brutal and made my skin crawl. Some book blurbs worn perspective readers about sexual content, this book should come with a torture warning. However, with that said, this is still a well-written book. The main characters, Sloane and Boone, are well-defined, easy to identify with and their connection is sizzling. Overall, this is an exciting short read and Ms. Walker's writer's voice is natural, realistic and homey. Complimentary copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.

Good book! Good story! The title is misleading. It made me think it was going to be a bit more of carefree book. Not so. I does take some twists & turns, but it is told really well. I love pretty much everything Shiloh Walker writes! She has a was of turning stories around, but in a good way
