One Night With A Hero (#2) By Laura Kaye

One Night with a Hero (The Hero, #2) He wants just one night…

After growing up with an abusive, alcoholic father, Army Special Forces Sgt. Brady Scott vowed never to marry or have kids. Sent stateside to get his head on straight—and his anger in check—Brady’s looking for a distraction. He finds it in his beautiful new neighbor’s one-night-only offer for hot sex, but her ability to make him forget is addictive. Suddenly, Brady’s not so sure he can stay away.

…what they need is each other.

Orphaned as a child, community center director Joss Daniels swore she’d never put herself in a position to be left behind again, but she can’t deny herself one sizzling night with the sexy soldier who makes her laugh and kisses her senseless. When Joss discovers she’s pregnant, Brady’s rejection leaves her feeling abandoned. Now, they must overcome their fears before they lose the love and security they’ve found in each other, but can they let go of the past to create a future together?

Grace's Review: 

 When I heard Her Forbidden Hero was going to have a sequel and that it was going to be Brady Scott's story, I just knew it was going to be good. I had no idea that I would end up loving One Night With A Hero even more!

“This was a one-night-only deal. Exactly his style. He didn't do sleepovers.”

Brady and Joss meet in a such a cute way. He turns on the charm from the moment he notices Joss, and he doesn't waste time figuring out how to spend more time with her. It all leads to her making a one-night-only offer to him. Be prepared, because things get hot and heavy right away! Their one night together becomes more when they find out they're neighbors! You see where this is going, yeah? Brady and Joss are so insatiable together! Their scenes together are super steamy...you have been warned!

“She wrapped her arms around his neck and held him close, surrendering to the hot chemistry that burned so brightly between them.”

I really enjoyed getting to know Joss. She has quite a few tattoos, a pierced tongue, and pink hair highlights. She's quirky, lovable, and works with kids. Her heart has been broken too many times that, like Brady, she's got a wall around it. Brady's protective and possessive side can't help but surface when he's around her, but he's got a lot of anger issues. Let's just say that he doesn't handle the news to her pregnancy too well.

The overall storyline for One Night With A Hero is not original. We've seen it before, a night of giving into lust leads to an unexpected pregnancy, and the guy can't back away fast enough. Kaye gives her characters a unique enough voice to set them apart from the rest. Combine that with her talent to create a love story so emotional that it tugs your heart, and a tortured hero that turns you into a puddle of goo, and you've got yourself one fantastic, satisfying read!

I honestly could not get enough of Brady and Joss! My favorite parts? Well, I have too many! If I listed them all, I'd be describing the entire book. If you're wondering if Marco and Alyssa make an appearance, yes, they do! They are tied into the story very well.

If you loved, Her Forbidden Hero, I'm sure you will enjoy One Night With A Hero as well. I think Kaye's The Heroes books just might be my favorite of her series. Her heroes are simply irresistible!

Thessa's Review:

When his gaze returned to hers, his eyes were filled with heat, wide and penetrating and intense. Erotic tension filled the narrow space between them and made it hard to breathe.

I first noticed this book the day of its release. It was advertised on Facebook and I immediately loved the cover. I loved the blurb. And the pièce de résistance: The story was written by Laura Kaye. I love this author! Her stories are normally filled with hot Alpha leading males and are very, very steamy. There was no resisting this one, so I instantly picked it up and read it one setting.

Built. Light-brown hair kissed by the sun with a hint of blond. All that lean, bare muscle.
Sex on a freaking stick. And a soldier to boot. Bet he looked seriously fine in his dress uniform. Panties probably dropped at the mere sight – thongs, too. Maybe even like the one she was currently wearing.

Brady is all kinds of delicious. He’s very sexy and very Alpha. However, like most strong Alpha Heroes, he’s got major issues. He wants a promotion within the Army. The only problem is that he won’t get it unless he can resolve his daddy issues. He grew up with an abusive father and practically raised his baby sister. He doesn’t believe in love, marriage and the whole loving family dynamic. He does, however, believe in lust. On the way back from a run, he notices Joss and is instantly attracted.

Brady was no stranger to women, but this one was full of contradictions that drove him wild. She had a smart mouth and a sharp wit, but blushed in a way that revealed vulnerability.

Joss is beautiful character, inside and out. I love her pink striped hair, tattoos, tongue piercing, a sharp wit, and to top it all off, she has such a kind heart. Her “single” status is a little surprising, but then again, her track record with men with commitment issues is nothing new. Then Brady comes into her life and she still can’t catch a break. After their planned one-night stand, they find out the morning after that they’re next door neighbors. Poor Joss. However, Joss stirs a lot of strange emotions within Brady. He will do whatever it takes to keep up his façade.

She was marking him, as surely as the metal that pierced her tongue and the ink that tattooed her skin marked her.

Yes, this story was predictable, but who cares?! These are the type of stories we all love to read. The sexy, stubborn, commitment phobic Alpha gets his walls torn down by a sweet and loving heroine. Honestly. Plus add on the fact that the steam factor was flat out steamy. How could you not like this? I know I did :)
