She’s the woman he can’t live without.
The one he can’t risk screwing up their relationship by sleeping with her.
Linc Kingston doesn’t accept anything less than perfection. Not in his billion-dollar business or in his personal life. He has it all. Except one thing. His personal assistant and best friend in his bed, moaning his name. No matter how much Linc wants her, she’s completely off-limits.
Jordan Greene grew up the daughter of the housekeeper at the Kingston estate, where she met and bonded with Linc at a young age, despite their economic differences. But no matter how close they are now or how much their attraction simmers beneath the surface, they’re still from two different worlds. Besides, Jordan isn’t about to risk losing her best friend for one sensual night.
Jordan might be the only woman who can handle Linc and his domineering, bossy attitude, but beneath that gruff exterior is a vulnerable man who, despite his wealth, has had a less-than-charmed life. And when Linc’s father dies, she’s there for him—unwavering in her friendship.
Until one night of passion and a positive pregnancy test changes everything.
Wonderful first book in the new Kingston series!
Linc and Jordan are introduced in the Dare Nation story, “Dare to Stay”. Willow and Braden’s story includes helping Aurora, a young pregnant girl who was raised in foster care and is trying to make it on her own. In their story you read about the discovery that Aurora is a half sister to Linc Kingston from their perspective. In “Just one Night” the perspective is shifted to Linc and Jordan. Best friends as well as being boss and assistant, class differences and society expectations are challenged. Luckily the Kingston family is more focused on love than family pedigree.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
This is book one in The Kingston Family series and it features Linc and Jordan. They’ve been best friends since forever and she’s also his personal assistant. These two are SO close it was inevitable the sparks would ignite at some point. Her mother had always drilled into her head that she didn’t belong in his world. He is from a wealthy family and she was their housekeeper’s daughter. They’re magic together if he doesn’t ruin it by proving her fears are actually true.
Great story line and awesome characters, which is exactly what I’ve come to expect from this very talented author. I would have loved a little more conflict with Beck as it seemed to work out a little too easy but it didn’t take away from the story. I can’t wait for the next book!
I'm not sure what I was expecting in this series so I was open to anything. This is a best friends to lovers with a surprise pregnancy thrown in. I found the story somewhat addicting because I wanted to know what would happen next. There were so many mixed signals in this book.
Linc and Jordan did NOT want to screw up their friendship by sleeping together. Plus she is his Personal Assistant and if they slept together people would talk. He did NOT want to be like his father. So he forced himself not to think of her that way. Jordan is the maid's daughter. People in Linc's circle look down on her and do not understand their relationship. She would always be looked down on by his people as the maid's daughter. So even though she is in love with him, she can't sleep with him. She could never fit in to his world.
But what happens in Florida, stays in Florida. Well... until it doesn't. What will happen when they return to New York and his normal life? Can they go back to just being best friends? And when she gets a surprise, how will Linc respond?
