New York’s hottest “sexpert” has been living a lie—and it’s up to one man to keep her honest . . . all night long.
Riley McKenna knows sex – good sex, bad sex, kinky sex…Her articles in Stiletto magazine are consistently the publication’s most scandalous—and the most read. But Riley has a secret…all that sexy talk? Not an ounce of it comes from personal experience. Her own bedroom escapades are more limited than even her best friends know. When her editor requests that all columnists write something more personal for Stiletto’s anniversary issue, Riley turns to the one man she’s always been able to count on and calls in the favor of a lifetime.
Sam Compton would do anything for Riley McKenna. Anything except be her experimental sex toy. He refuses her request. At least until she tells him that it’ll either be him or she’ll go to someone else. And that, Sam can’t accept. Reluctantly he agrees to her terms—one night of completely meaningless sex in the name of research. Riley thinks she’s prepared for what awaits her in Sam’s bed.  After ten years of writing about sex, actually doing it shouldn’t be that different, right? So wrong. What starts as “one time only” becomes “just one more time.” And then one more. And before they know it, Riley and Sam learn first-hand that when it comes to love, there’s no such thing as just one night.

Review: I was really surprised at how sweet this story was, considering Riley writes a sexy column for the magazine, Stiletto. This book was a sweet romance with a sexy twist.
I was really expecting some hot steamy sex, but most was left to the imagination, but actually, I was all right with that.
You have to read this book like it is a modern day fairytale of sorts, after all, how many 27 year old almost virgins are there? Riley, just couldn't find a guy to live up to Sam. It would be a little more believable if she were more girl next door, than sexy vamp. But hey, you got to love her, even if you don't understand her.
For example, the book opens with her on a date with Mr. Not So Right. When he gets all prissy and she still intends to go home with him...well, I wanted to smack her. This guy was a loser.
Riley is such a strong character, especially when you compare her to Sam. I loved Sam, he was a total hunk and a sweetie, but dude let a lot of people walk all over him, especially his mother! And he had such guilt about it. I wanted to hug him and punch her most of the time. Oh and any guy that drops a job in finance to buy a distillery is awesome in my book!
Best Scene: When Riley and Sam get puppies!!
I was surprised how long it took for these two to get together, but they were really perfect. A fun read, if not as spicy as I expected.
