One Winters Night by Brenda Jackson


One Winters Night is a Westmoreland novel. For a novel set in winter it is way hot and steamy. Thier is a lot of suggestive talk and love scenes.
Riley Westmoreland was 15 when is parents and Aunt & Uncle all died in a plane crash.
All of the children are close to each other and pulled together with the oldest puting thier own plans aside to raise the younger one and keep the business going.
Riley saw how his brother got messed up over a girl when her family broke them apart and he never wants to let a woman get that close to him. So when he met the party planner he was supposed to work with and was really attracted to he told her up front that he wanted an affair but only for six weeks.
Alpha Blake is from Florida but has moved to Denver to start her party planning business. Alpha last two serious boyfriends as ended badly because of her identical twin Omega porn star past. Alpha does not blame her sister and is still close to her. Her parents have disowned Omega. Alpha does appreciates Riley's open offer and asks for time to think on it. She agrees to the affair but tells Riley that she just can't jump into bed with him.
So the main plot is thier six week affair with lots of love scenes. Thier are a few little plot themes in this book too dealing with families and how important they are in your lives.
I love the big close Westmoreland clan and wish thier was more interaction between them. I want to ask Alpha's parents what were they thinking when they named thier girls that. I also tried to think of how I would react to one of my daughters dropping out of collage to be a porn star. It would be heart breaking and lots of worry about them.
This is a quick read and if you put yourself into the different situations it made me think hard about the choices I would make.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
