Review: The Stranger ( Just One Night #1 ) by Kyra Davis

The Stranger by Kyra Davis

In this New York Times bestselling erotic enovella trilogy, a buttoned-up businesswoman takes her friend’s advice and has a fling with a stranger on a trip to Vegas—only to find herself under his mysterious, sexy power both in the boardroom and the bedroom.

Kasie Fitzgerald knows who she’s supposed to be. She’s a rising-star-workaholic at a global consulting firm. She’s the fiancĂ©e of a well-connected man who’s won the approval of her parents. People know that she’s reliable, serious, proper, cautious, pragmatic, and yes, a little predictable. She’s who Dave and her family want her to be.

But as her thirtieth birthday looms, buried feelings begin to resurrect. Her friend takes her to Vegas for one last wild and crazy night. In a dress much shorter and sexier than anything she has ever dared to wear before, she hits the blackjack tables. And meets him. Under the tailored clothes it’s clear that this is a man who is intense, powerful, and maybe even a little dangerous. With a touch of trepidation she accepts his invitation to get a drink, and before long, she’s in his hotel room.

She never gets his full name. Perhaps his anonymity is one of the reasons she’s able to give herself over to him and to the moment so completely. Perhaps it’s why she’s just had the most exquisite and passionate sex of her life. Shaken by her own behavior, Kasie tries to chalk it up to one crazy night. But when the mysterious gentleman she’s just had a fling with shows up in her office—as the CEO of a firm her company does a billion dollars of business with a year, demanding that she handle his account, and so much more—things will never be the same again. And there’s no telling where this will go…




3.5 infidelity stars.

Things started slow and draggy in the middle, but the cliffhanger ending with a perfect twist makes me want to read the next one right away.

This is a 3 part novella that started off with cheating. Kasie didn't just did it once, she did it repeatedly with the same man, Robert Dade. Although she is overcome with guilt, she couldn't bring herself to right the wrong and can't keep herself away from the seductive Robert that manage to unleash her inner sexuality.

After an one night stand at Vegas, Robert Dave, CEO of a security firm, sought out Kasie and hired her company to he his firm's consultant. He desires Kasie and make his intention clear to her. Meanwhile, Kasie is lament with guilt towards her boyfriend of 6 years, Dave. Dave is a tax attorney, an uptight man who cherish and respect Kasie. Initially I find him totally boring and wondering why she haven't dump him already. He feels like a vanilla man compare to Robert who oozes sex appeal. But later on, I kind of sympathize with his character.

A big part of the book mainly deals with Kasie discovering her sexuality and passion that she never anticipate in herself. She is eaten by guilt and when she wants to put things right, thing turn from bad to worse. I felt the book is a bit draggy in the middle, especially with Kasie's indecisiveness. Mind you, she is sleeping with both men at the same time. Is hard to sympathize with her and I nearly DNF this. Nevertheless, I heard that Book 2 is when the shit hits the fan. So I plan to finish this and head over to book 2. But the ending just blew me away. Is such a perfect twist that make my jaw dropped. Totally a WTF moment. Kyra Davis do know how to end a book with a bang and make me crave the next one immediately.

Rating 3.5/5
