One night was all she wanted.
One night was all he could give.
Until they found forever...
Dr. Cassandra Papdakis is serious and reserved, the kind of woman more suited to the academic world than the romantic social scene on Santorini where she’s come to reset her life.
Leo Sutton is a playboy, the kind of man rumored to work his way through women, one at a time, before throwing them away and moving on.
When they meet by chance, they agree to one unforgettable night together. No names, no strings attached. But one night isn’t enough and revealing their true identities creates a set of problems neither could have imagined.
They both come from families wrapped up in the high-stakes world of international construction. Families that share one thing – a fierce rivalry. And neither would be pleased to know that Cassie and Leo have found a connection more fundamental than anything or anyone that might come between them.
But when Cassie learns Leo might be interested in a property she owns, one that could also save her father’s company, she begins to wonder if everything between them is built on lies.
Can Cassie overcome her past and see Leo clearly, or will his reputation and the hostility between their families destroy any chance of happiness they might find?
Can one night become forever?
Note: One Night Together is a standalone contemporary romance based on secondary characters from the Indigo Series. It is not necessary to read the Indigo Series first.
I loved Cassandra from the start, but Leo had to grow on me. While I get that their night together was suppose to be a one-off, the continuing secrecy about his past wasn’t as sexy as it was meant to be…for me at least. But Leo’s genuine interest in Cassie outside of their physical relationship went a long way towards warming up to him. He was a huge part in why this shy caterpillar grew into a more confident and strong butterfly. And I think Cassandra did the same thing for Leo…showed him that he was definitely worth more than the superficial playboy outsiders had painted him as.
While there are some outright baddies in the mix, I have conflicting feelings about Cassie’s parents, specifically her dad but her mom wasn’t exactly blame free. Frankly, I think the forgiveness switch was flipped prematurely and without consequences. Maybe others will feel differently but I never got the warm and fuzzies from the senior Papadakises.
I enjoyed Leo and Cassandra’s story and I’ll be back for more Kate McBrien books in the future…after I catch up on those I’ve missed.
