This book wasn’t what I was expecting even though I love reading 1 Night Stand stories. It was so much more that I almost forgot it was a novella and part of the series. The background leading up to Kendra, Carson and Shane meeting up gave you a wonderful understanding of each character and quickly had you interested in each of them. Their dreams, goals and lives became real. I wasn’t sure how two Kansas cowboys and a woman in Hawaii were going to meet but Ms Kaye takes care of it beautifully. In fact, I go so wrapped up in this story that I wasn’t ready for it to end. I wanted more. Now, as usual, the magic of Madame Eve and her 1 Night Stand service was working. The sex was hot and steamy. But, it’s definitely character driven and those characters are awesome. Whether you’re a fan of 1 Night Stands or not, if you like a good cowboy story with menage, read this one. It is so worth it.
Kendra dreams of cowboys but being on Hawaii she’s pretty sure she isn’t going to run into one any time soon, even though there are cowboys on Hawaii. She doesn’t dream of marriage but one night with a sexy cowboy would be enough. Her good friend is encouraging her to fill out an application with 1 Night Stand but Kendra isn’t sure even Madame Eve can fulfill her cowboy fantasy. In Kansas, Shane is a bull rider who is a bit banged up. He co-owns a ranch with his good friend and sometimes lover, Carson. Each would like to set the other up with a good woman and both think that the other deserves happiness more than them. Carson fills out an application with 1 Night Stand for Shane but the men are surprised when the date includes them both. Kendra is equally shocked when she’s told that her date includes 2 cowboys. This is way outside her experience! How does one handle two men?
Kendra spends her days and nights running a business, sculpting, and leading a Tahitian dance group in Kauai. She can’t squeeze anything else into her life, but she dreams of cowboys. Sexy, hot cowboys in tight jeans, low-tipped Stetsons, and dusty boots. Men who know all about how to please a woman. She enjoys her fantasies, but can’t imagine ever settling down. But one night with one would be so nice. Surely that would get her dreams of a white knight cowboy sweeping her off her feet out of her system.
Because of an accident that Shane believes left him “less of a man,” he doesn’t see a wife and children in his future. Carson, his ranching partner—and sometimes lover—thinks Shane is wrong. Carson refuses to let Shane settle for a life of rodeo bunnies who only want a romp in bed with a bull rider. Shane deserves more than that. He manages to sign Shane up with a matchmaking service to, hopefully, meet another kind of woman, maybe someone who will appreciate Shane for the man he is. Except Madame Evangeline expects both of the cowboys to go on this special one night date. It doesn’t take long for either cowboy to realize that one night with the purple-haired, hip-shaking beauty in Kauai might not be enough….
