It was only supposed to be one night!

We met at a wedding. He was hot. And I’d been in a year’s drought.

He smiled. We got drunk.We flirted. We hooked up. I left early the next morning without saying goodbye. It was only meant to be a one night stand. I didn’t want the awkward morning after moment. Not at all.

Then I went home for the weekend. And he was there. Sitting on the couch chatting to my dad. Turns out he was more than just a stranger. Turns out that my one night stand was about to cause a whole heap of trouble. Turns out that it never just stops with one night.

I love the idea of the whole one night stand coming back to bite you in the butt later on down the line. So when I read the synopsis for this book and saw that Liv has a one night stand with a guy who ends up sitting on her parents couch the next day, well talk about an awkward situation to be sure. There were some things that worked for me in this book and some that totally did not.

So I was a bit surprised that they made the hero in the book, Xander, the fiance of Liv’s sister. I mean it was kind of a recipe for disaster, which worked in some places and in others it was just kinda uncomfortable. I know books that deal with cheating are often deal breakers for a lot of readers (not me) so I think right away some people are going to be turned off to this book without knowing the full story, which is kind of a shame. But at the same time it does come off as a little bit gross in parts when Xander is still kind of hitting on Liv when he is in some kind of relationship with her sister.

Xander is kind of hard for me to classify. I mean in parts I liked him, but a lot of times I thought his level of arrogance was just too much. I also really didn’t like how often they referred to his tongue, it was funny at first, and then it just got kind of gross. This guy takes confident to a whole new level.

As for Liv. Well I liked her for the most part. At least she recognized how weird it was to find your one night stand engaged to your sister, I mean seriously that would be beyond uncomfortable. I liked her friend that she has come out to help her out with the situation. I actually think her friendship with Alice was one of the most enjoyable elements of this book.

So Liv’s family plays a big role in this book, like a big role. So you get to meet and kind of start to get to know Liv’s brothers, and of course her sister. Obviously her sister is a big role because she is engaged to Xander, and truth be told she is so not a good person. I didn’t like her at all in this book, but I think that is the point. She made for a pretty good villain in the book.

Overall, I liked the book, there were things I didn’t like but things I really did enjoy. I think if you like awkward situations and some serious family drama, then you might want to check out this romance, there is a fair amount of humor in it as well, so if you like some funny in your romance, this book has it.
