One night was all I asked for. For him to show me how good it can be. — Gabe
One night was all I promised. To give him the best time of his life. — Cam

Gabe Anderson wants nothing more than to overcome the scars of his past. Moving to a new city halfway across the world is one thing. Walking into the most exclusive gay bar in town to hook up with a perfect stranger is a whole new ball game.

Cam Sorvino doesn’t do relationships. Period. Having buried his dark childhood behind him, he lives life to the fullest and likes his sex hot, dirty, and for one night only. Though Cam’s instincts tell him that Gabe isn’t the one-night kind of guy, he can’t stop himself from approaching him. When Cam discovers the true extent of Gabe’s harrowing secrets, he makes him an offer he cannot refuse: one night of mindless pleasure to help him overcome his phobia of intimacy. 

But when morning comes, will Cam be able to let go of the one man who is able to stir new feelings inside his cold, dead heart? 

I have to admit this was not only the first Novella I’ve read, but also my first erotic romance, as I only started reading romance a short while ago.
The first thing that comes to mind when thinking of the story is “PWP, Slash”, which just goes to show that while I’ve never read erotic romance I’m well versed when it comes to Fanfiction.

But let’s talk about the story.
Obviously there wasn’t a lot of plot. It took place within one night and it was mainly about Cam getting Gabe into bed. While I would usually consider this a strike against a book it was pretty much what I expected from this novella.

I liked both Cam and Gabe and the chemistry between them. The sex scenes were pretty steamy and well written. It was kinda wired that after just one night Cam immediately let’s go of his aversion to relationships and decides he wants Gabe as more than just a one-night stand. Equally I find it hard to believe that within just one night Gabe is able to let go of all his trauma, trust a random stranger and decides to be a devoted boyfriend.

That’s not to say I have a problem with their relationship, in fact I loved it and continued reading the next book in the series right after.
I struggled a bit with the rating because I felt I enjoyed it enough to warrant 4 stars, but I also don’t think that this book is on par with the other books I usually rate 4 stars when it comes to plot, character or worldbuilding and writing, which are the things I usually consider in my rating. I did go with 4 stars though because in the end I just loved the book.
