Diary of a One-Night Stand by Alexandrea Weis Review and Giveaway

 





Description:

Resilient and practical, Kara Barton has continually strived to live a respectable life. She went to college, embarked on a promising career as an attorney, married a great guy, and always appeared to be the perfect wife and mother. But all is not what it seems, and the troubling past Kara has been running from her entire life is about to catch up with her. Urged on by her insecurities about growing older, and desperately wanting to feel one more night of passion, Kara agrees to share a tryst in a hotel room with a sexy business associate, Scott Ellsworth. But Scott wants more than one night together, and Kara quickly discovers it is impossible to resist him. Soon Kara finds herself transformed into the kind of woman she vowed never to become, and the secure world she has struggled all her life to build begins to fall apart. Kara Barton is about to find out how a one-night stand can change everything.

Tich's Review:

I was given this book to review and upon first glance I thought "Yeah, this sounds good." Good doesn't even begin to describe what I thought of it. Alexandrea Weis wrote characters that are experiencing longing, need, sadness, guilt, desire, lust...things we all experience at some point or another. Diary of a One Night Stand deals with real life, period.

I think that, becuase of the title, I expected a book full of sex and not much else. Yes, there was sex involved but the story line went much deeper than a book full of sex scenes. We follow Kara, an attorny, who is married to an attorny. To others she has a great life, married to a wonderful man, has a great ten year old, and has a good career. But married life isn't as great as it once was and Kara wants more.

When Scott comes along Kara finds it hard to resist his charms and agrees to a one night stand. What she isn't quite prepared for is how this one night stand can change everything.

The only thing negative I have to say about this book is that there were a few typos, not enough to be a distraction it was just something that I caught. I loved Diary of a One Night Stand and definitely recommend it to any adult!
