One Wicked Night

Length: 45 pages

Angel Jones is a career-driven woman at the top of her game with a big problem: a wickedly handsome boss. It is impossible to get him out of her mind, so her friends talk her into using someone else’s invitation to an exclusive dating service. It’s a dare she can’t resist. 

Fernando Durante knows lusting after someone at work is not an option. He has managed to avoid direct contact with her for years, but thanks to a recent promotion, the witty goddess reports directly to him. When a friend emails him an invitation to an exclusive dating service, Fernando accepts against his better judgment.

Will Angel and Fernando let their hearts guide them?

My Interview with Emily

BB: Would you please tell us a bit about yourself? 

EQ: I’m a Senior Project Manager, wife, and mother to two wonderful boys. 

BB: What do you do when you're not writing?

BB: Do you write to music or do you require quiet? 

EQ: I write to music then I edit in quiet. 

BB: Why are readers going to love One Wicked Night?

EQ: I enjoyed all of it, but the one I liked the most is when I first met Fernando. He was taking a shower!

My Review

One wicked night, indeed! One Wicked Night was a quick, well-written, and very sexy read. While it was short, it gave me just enough of a taste of what's to come in the Wicked series.

In One Wicked Night, we meet Angel Jones and Fernando Durante. These two have worked together for three years now. They have also secretly lusted for one another for almost as long. Since they work together and their company has an anti-fraternization policy, they haven't acted on their feelings. They haven't even broached the subject with one another.

Angel seems intelligent and very dedicated to her career. She also seems to have a good group of friends. Fernando also seems very smart and equally dedicated to his job.

We are also introduced to Angel's group of friends, as well as one of Fernando's. I'm hoping we'll learn more about these characters as this series continues.

In an attempt to help them get over each other, Angel and Fernando's friends offer them their invitations to an exclusive dating service. Both Angel and Fernando agree to use the service. As this dating service is quite unique in its approach to finding perfect matches, I was excited to see what would happen to our couple. 

Do I wish I'd gotten to know both Angel and Fernando better? Yes. Do I wish I'd gotten to see their relationship develop more fully? Sure. Do I wish I'd learned more about the illusive figures behind Elite Classified Online Dating? Absolutely! But here's the thing...with novellas, I'm usually left unsatisfied - I always want more. I want more character development, more time for the story to unfold. With One Wicked Night, I would have enjoyed more. But I have to admit to feeling pretty satisfied. 

While I will admit that some of the story was predictable, and of course, things moved along fairly quickly, I still enjoyed this entry into the Wicked series. I will definitely read the next book in the series. If you're looking for a light, sexy read, One Wicked Night should suffice. :)

    1. Thanks, Andrea. I know you enjoy novellas, so you should def give this one a try. :)

  2. Great review Brandee! And you are very right - I am also often a little less satisfied with a novella or short story than with a full novel :) You actually made me wanna read it again, though ;)

    Have an excellent afternoon!

    1. I'll take that as a compliment, Lexxie! ;) I do usually tend to shy away from novellas since I usually end up wishing they were novels...but this one didn't as much. Thanks so much for stopping by. And I hope the rest of your evening is wonderful! :)

  3. I remember seeing info for this one. It sounds pretty good. I like the idea of meeting someone in a shower. Italian food = yummy!! Great interview and excellent review! Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.
