One: An Exclusive Collection of EIGHTEEN Brand NEW Sexy One Night Changes Everything Stories is a compilation of short stories from an array of authors, all focusing on one night stands. My copy has been pre-ordered for a couple weeks but I was fortunate to get an early copy of one particular story, and the one I was the most excited for, Lucky!

Lucky is the prequel to an upcoming novel by J.M. Darhower called Twenty to Life. It’s about a girl, Maddelena, spending her last night of freedom trying to let loose and find some fun, and perhaps to get a little lucky. And Lucky is just who she meets. These two instantly connected, both wasting no time with the formalities of getting to know each other first. They were hot together and the mystery surrounding both of these characters drew me in and made it all that much more exciting. It’s a short story so it just gave me a taste of what is to come with the future novel – a promise of angst and forbidden love all tied in a nice mafia inspired package. The ending left me salivating for more and I cannot wait to see what Darhower has in store for us in Twenty to Life. 

The one night stand story arc can feel a bit forbidden and sexy so I’m looking forward to checking out the rest of these short stories when the novel releases on September 1st! It’s only $0.99 for a limited time so go get yourself a copy!
