~Review: Just One Night (Sex, Love & Stiletto #3) by Lauren Layne~

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.

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

Riley McKenna has loved Sam Compton since the day she met him at the tender age of seventeen.  Sam is Riley’s big brothers best friend and as usual big brother puts the hands off rule on Sam.  What’s a girl to do?  Everything she can to make Sam break that rule and see her as his.  The problem is Sam’s sense of loyalty and honor will not allow him to grab the girl that he wants, Riley.
Ten years later has not changed anything for Riley, she still wants Sam.  Even though she is now a writer for a women’s magazine and writes all about sex, Riley is still basically untouched. Her reputation says that she is a woman of the world but her heart still belongs to one man, Sam.  When it is announced that each writer for the magazine must write about their personal life and how their experiences writing for the magazine has made a difference, Riley knows she can no longer lie about her sexual inexperience. The sex expert needs some experience and Sam is the man for the job.  Her solution involves convincing Sam to give her some one on one lessons on sex. 

Sam has always wanted Riley, but a promise is a promise.  Plus he loves her family and has been more or less adopted as one of their own since he has only a mother that hates him. Going after Riley could destroy his place in the family.  He also doesn’t feel like he is good enough for her thanks to the constant hateful comments his mother has thrown at him all his life.  When Riley comes to him for help he is conflicted.  This is his chance to make her his if only for one night but can he break his promise to his best friend?  Can he loose his adoptive family?  Will he be able to stand strong or give in to the need of being with Riley?
