One Night of Scandal
After my last breakup, I have new rules. No more bad boys. No more fighters. But one look at Reed Miller and suddenly I understand exactly why Eve was so tempted by that apple. Because one look at that breathtakingly-hot man—to say nothing of that hard, sculpted body—and my mouth is watering for a taste.
But Reed is everything I’m not allowed to want. The baddest bad boy. An ex-fighter. And my ex’s best friend.
He’s fully off-limits. I can’t want him. I can’t have him.
But all it takes is one touch from him to know that the wrong guy never felt so right...

The continuation of the After Hours series gets right to the tension that we saw briefly between Darcy and Reed in One Night of Sin. They try hard to fight what's clearly between them but you can only fight chemistry for so long. After a small dry humping session in the corner of Reeds club Sin they try to steer clear of each other. They both feel a bit guilty about their attraction since Darcy just got out of a relationship with one of Reed's best friends-AJ. Darcy discovers her inner vixen whenever she's near Reed. She just can't help but tease and push him all the while hoping he will finally break. And when he finally does break it's so smoking hot they break the smoke detectors-well not really but read this book and you'll see what I mean. Poor Reed has a bad boy reputation that he can't seem to shake. He wants to prove to Darcy that he wants a serious relationship, but she's so busy trying to prove to him that she can do casual that she doesn't realize that's not what he wants. It was a lot of fun watching these two fight and finally submit to their desires. They do a lot to keep the excitement level up and Reed slowly proves to her that she's what he wants. The end is so sweet I almost cried, but the epilogue brought back the fun, outgoing couple again. Another great book from Elle and I'm definitely going to have to read more of her books.
Reed is sizzling!!!
Reed Miller had it bad for his best friends girl, Darcy Grant. After Darcy and AJ broke up, he still couldn't have her because of that bro code that says you can't go after your best friends ex. So, he stayed away from her. Well, at least he tried to.
This book is a light hearted, ultra sexy, afternoon romance. Reed and Darcy are steaming up the windows and setting fire to the sheets...and the couch, and the car, and you get my meaning. It was hard to watch this gorgeous, sexy, smart man struggle with being good enough. He'd changed since he was younger but no one bothered to notice, which hurt him. Now maybe his friends will open their eyes. Thank you Elle Kennedy! You write some fine alpha men! I can't wait to read AJ's story.
