Sure, opposites attract, but in this sexy, smart, eBook original romance from RITA finalist and bestselling author Ruthie Knox, they positively combust! When a buttoned-up banker falls for a bad girl, “about last night” is just the beginning.
Cath Talarico knows a mistake when she makes it, and God knows she’s made her share. So many, in fact, that this Chicago girl knows London is her last, best shot at starting over. But bad habits are hard to break, and soon Cath finds herself back where she has vowed never to go . . . in the bed of a man who is all kinds of wrong: too rich, too classy, too uptight for a free-spirited troublemaker like her.
Nev Chamberlain feels trapped and miserable in his family’s banking empire. But beneath his pinstripes is an artist and bohemian struggling to break free and lose control. Mary Catherine—even her name turns him on—with her tattoos, her secrets, and her gamine, sex-starved body, unleashes all kinds of fantasies.
When blue blood mixes with bad blood, can a couple that is definitely wrong for each other ever be perfectly right? And with a little luck and a lot of love, can they make last night last a lifetime?
ABOUT LAST NIGHT
by Ruthie Knox
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
ABOUT LAST NIGHT by Ruthie Knox is one of my all-time favorite books! I read it the first time back in 2012 and fell in love with Cath and City. I grabbed the audible copy up when I saw it on the discount list and fell in love all over again… maybe even more so when I listened to this wonderful story narrated with the delightful British accent of Coleen Marlo.
Nev Chamberlain “City” is in my top five book boyfriend list. This sexy Brit is kind, thoughtful, a sexy artist wrapped up in a stylish business suit, and not afraid to go the extra mile to win the love of the woman who has stolen his heart. Mary Catherine “Cath” Talarico has worked hard to put her past mistakes completely behind her and is certain “City” is all wrong for her…. or that she is all wrong for him. But she can’t make herself stay away (and I wouldn’t even try) and finds herself wrapped in his arms night after night.
This story is so good that even though I’ve read it twice before, I was up until the early hours of the morning to get to the end in one sitting… again. The writing is excellent, the dialogue witty and engaging, the main characters are both impossible not to love, the romance is as sigh-worthy as it gets, and the sex scenes are steamy and sensual acts of love.
USA Today bestselling author RUTHIE KNOX writes contemporary romance that’s sexy, witty, and angsty—sometimes all three at once. Her debut novel, Ride with Me, is probably the only existing cross-country bicycling love story. She followed it up with About Last Night, a London-set romance whose hero has the unlikely name of Neville, and then Room at the Inn, a Christmas novella—both of which were finalists for the Romance Writers of America’s RITA Award. Her four-book series about the Clark family of Camelot, Ohio, has won accolades for its fresh, funny portrayal of small-town Midwestern life. Ruthie also writes New Adult romance as RobinYork. She moonlights as a mother, Tweets incessantly, and bakes a mean focaccia. She’d love to hear from you, so feel free to drop her a line.
