Gabriel Torres thought his life after Major League Baseball would be simple and quiet, or at least quieter. However, as he takes over running the exclusive Players Club, he finds himself continually embroiled in scandal and drama. Surely nothing, and no one could make his life any crazier...Right?
Rachel Adler is a blast from Gabe’s past who crashed back into his life with the finesse of a freight train. But she's a welcome distraction. At least for a night.
Rachel has been working hard to become one of the top sports journalists in the country. She doesn't have time for a long-term romance or irresistibly charming baseball players. A one-night-stand with the man who she knew would hit it out of the park was all she wanted.
But when she gets a tip that Gabe could have ties to one of the biggest sports stories in history, a story that could make her career, Rachel decides that maybe she has a little time for the sexy baseball player after all. As she gets in deeper with both her story and Gabe, Rachel begins to question who she is, what she wants, and what exactly she’s willing to sacrifice for her career.
Will the potential grand-slam romance be stopped short or will Rachel and Gabe be able to go the distance?
4 Star Review by Ashley
I had never heard of Elizabeth Hayley but after seeing a sneak peek, I was intrigued enough to want to read The One Night Stand. I really enjoyed the balance in Gabe and Rachel's story. There was plenty of humor and heat. But what I liked even more was that these characters were real. They had struggles both personally and professionally and they translated over into the other aspects of their lives.
I loved them together. There was laughter and sharing and friendship and a connection that time couldn't dispel. It was quasi kismet that these two were back in each others lives and they sure did make the most of it. Can you say hot? These two heated it up all over place. While I didn't like all the secrets and dishonesty, I understood both of their reasons for it. There was a lot at risk, more than their careers and reputation. The livelihood of others depended on them getting it right. But together, together, sigh, they were so good.
I have to say I found the big blow up a bit predictable but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it. Because I totally did. Especially how it changed them both. I can't forget that the awesome cast of secondary characters. The writing team that is Elizabeth Hayley created something special with this group and and after a taste of them, I can't wait to have the time to get to know them all better.
About the Author
Elizabeth Hayley is actually "Elizabeth" and "Hayley," two friends who love reading romance novels to obsessive levels. This mutual love prompted them to put their English degrees to good use by penning their own. The product is Pieces of Perfect, their debut novel. They learned a ton about one another through the process, like how they clearly share a brain and have a persistent need to text each other constantly (much to their husbands' chagrin).
They live with their husbands and kids in a Philadelphia suburb. Thankfully, their children are still too young to read.
Elizabeth Hayley's writing motto is best captured by the words of Patrick Dennis: "I always start with a clean piece of paper and a dirty mind."
