Review: One Night of Sin by Elle Kennedy

Title: One Night of Sin

Sometimes it’s good to be bad…

When it comes to sex, good girl Skyler Thompson always plays it safe, choosing stable and sedate over wild and thrilling. She doesn’t do one-night-stands, but one look at sinfully sexy Gage Holt and she’s willing to reconsider. He makes her want to be bad for once in her life, and she’s prepared to take what she wants.

Danger follows former MMA fighter Gage Holt like a shadow. Despite his successes as part owner of Sin, an exclusive nightclub in Boston, Gage can’t risk getting involved with a woman, especially one as sweet as Skyler. Still, he can’t resist a taste—and it’s so damn good he has to see her again.

As addicted as he is to her, Gage knows there’s no future for him and Skyler—not with his past lurking in the dark corners of an MMA cage. But Skylar’s tougher than she looks, and she’s ready to fight for her man.

Normally, I love Elle Kennedy’s books.  She always writes the perfect guy and the best steamy moments but for some reason, I could not get into this book.  Honestly, it started out great.  Gage was perfectly sexy when he first sees Skyler in his club and their time out in the alley was hot.  However, it just turned from there.  I think, even though I really can’t say for sure, that it was the fact that it was all too quick.  Maybe if the book was longer and I got to see a little more teasing and playfulness from the characters, I could truly believe the passion behind the words. 

This doesn’t mean that I am giving up on Elle Kennedy by any means.  I am still a huge fan of her and her books.  I especially like the “Out of Uniform” series.  If you haven’t read any of those, go check them out.

This book does set itself up for more of the secondary characters to be come a part of the series, which I thought was really smart.  I do look forward to continuing with this series to see where Elle Kennedy decides to take us.
