Return to beautiful Briscoe Ranch Resort in Melissa Cutler's next steamy installment of the One and Only Texas series, One Wild Night.
Get ready for the ride of your life...
A cowgirl at heart, Skye Martinez has a rebellious streak she's determined to shake. Especially since she's poised to take the reins of her family's business at Briscoe Ranch Resort. It's time for her to settle down and get serious about her future...right after one last night of fun with a handsome stranger she meets in the resort's stable. But when a midnight horseback ride turns into a red-hot weekend with one of country music's biggest stars, Skye's world is rocked beyond her wildest dreams...
Gentry Wells rode his bad boy image all the way to the top of the country music charts. But churning out hits has dried up his creativity, and he can't remember the last time his life was his own. Skye is a sexy distraction he can't resist, especially since she breathes new life into his music. They bring out the wild side in each other, which is great for Gentry's career—but a major threat to Skye's. Too bad he's fallen in love with her. With their hearts and futures on the line, can Gentry convince Skye to turn their joyride into a real chance to ride off into the sunset together?
"Melissa Cutler is a bright new voice in contemporary romance." — New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde
One night with sweetheart and wild child Skye Martinez leaves country music superstar and confirmed bachelor Gentry Wells singing a new tune in Cutler's entertaining fifth One and Only Texas contemporary (after If Santa Were a Cowboy). Struggling to finish his album by the deadline, Gentry finds his muse in Skye. Her free spirit and ignorance of his identity give him a chance to ditch his persona. Skye believes her failed marriage and miscarriage were punishments from God, and knows she should be modest and reserved "like the good Catholic woman she was raised to be," but Gentry proves to be a temptation too hard to resist. Knowing he's about to leave town, she agrees to one adventurous night with him. Given his life on the road and her plan to take over the family business in Dulcet, Tex., their relationship is more likely to end up as a sad country song than as a happily-ever-after. Sensitive issues of guilt and rejection are blended with kinky sex and the humorous antics of spitfire grannies, making this a well-balanced love story.

To start out I his series. I love how melissa Cutler has come up with some of the most hilarious scenarios that I have to wonder how her mind works. You are guaranteed a good laugh in everyone of these books.

Now they are,practically falling at her feet. Then in walks Gentry Wells country musics bad boy. Gentry is everything Skye is not looking for but everything she needs. Gentry and Skye spend a worlwind weekend and go their separate ways, if only they can stop thinking about each other. Skye has given Gentry his muse back and the idea of a different life then before. Gentry goes back for Skye but now he's got to convince her he's the man for her when he's seems to be the farthest from it.
This book is not my favorite of the series so far but I think Gentry is the hottest character of the series.

Everyone has a mask we present to the world. Sometimes it is a professional face on a day we are feeling anything but. Other times it is an attempt to meet expectations that are not our own. At is heart, One Wild Night, the newest installment in Melissa Cutler’s Briscoe Ranch / One and Only Texas series, is the story of two people’s struggle to reconcile what is expected of them and what makes them happy. Eventually, Skye and Gentry find that the right answer is sometimes a balance of the two. Those who have read the previous installments in the series will be delighted to see Granny June and Remedy back. New readers will warm quickly to the match-making octogenarian, one of my favorite characters in fiction. To make this novel extra special, Cutler wrote song lyrics for her country music superstar. The lyrics alone are worth the read; though there is no actual music I find myself humming “Well-Hung.” This novel was the perfect escape from a busy week. Sadly all I wanted to do was keep reading. I can't wait for the next installment in this series.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.
This is the third book in the One and Only Texas series but can easily be read standalone. I must say these is definitely my least favorite of the series so far. Gentry and Skye just didn't click for me the way the other couples have. I know the whole opposites attract thing and usually I can see how the couple can compromise and make it work. These two are just too different. He's a big time country singer. She's happily a small town girl looking for a guy to settle down with. What was suppose to be "One Wild Night" turns into much more which neither character seems to handle well. Unfortunately this one never rings true for me.
