In Lauren Layne’s sizzling Sex, Love & Stiletto series, New York’s hottest “sexpert” has been living a lie—and it’s up to one man to keep her honest . . . all night long.
Riley McKenna knows sex—good sex, bad sex, kinky sex. Her articles inStiletto magazine are the publication’s most scandalous—and the most read. But when Stiletto’s fiftieth anniversary issue requires her column to get a lot more personal, Riley is forced to confront a long-hidden secret: Her own sexual experience is limited to one awkward college encounter. Now Riley is about to call in the favor of a lifetime from the one man who’s always held her heart.
Sam Compton knows two things about Riley McKenna: She’s the only woman for him. But as his best friend’s little sister, she’s also completely off-limits. Sam shouldn’t even consider her proposition: to have a one-night stand in the name of research. But the thought of another man putting his hands on Riley is more than Sam can handle, and soon he’s agreeing to one night with New York’s resident sexpot. But Riley’s full of surprises, and what starts as “one time only” soon becomes “just one more time.” And then one more. And before they know it, Riley and Sam learn firsthand that when it comes to love, there’s no such thing as just one night.

First all I need to thank NetGalley and Random House for providing us with an ARC to this story.
This is actually part of a series by Lauren Layne called Sex, Love and Stilettos but each story could be read individually and does not (in my opinion) need to be read in order. Though now I definitely want to go back to get the first two books.
If you've been following the blog for some time you know very well how much I love second chance, as well as, friends becoming more romances, and this is absolutely falls into that category. Riley and Sam have know each other for ten years but both were too scared to really say anything to the other until an article she needs to write for work forces them to face their fears.
Man do I have to say how much the character of Riley made me laugh, she really does have that little sister feel to her. She's quirky and fun, and loyal, but at the same time scared and reserved to really put herself out there. And boy does she have an appetite, kinda makes me jealous wishing I could eat like her without a problem.
Sam is that character that you want to hug and hold and make all things better, but at the same time he makes you want to give him a good kick in the butt. The fact that he hasn't gotten the support he so deserves most of his life, and is afraid to take a chance and prove the naysayers right. It kills me that he lacks confidence due to the influence of his mother during his childhood.
This is one of those stories that once I started reading it I didn't put down until I was finished. It really flows so easily it didn't feel like it too me long to read at all.
I hope you give it a chance in the near future as well. And just remember there are more books to be read in this series (and I may just get a hold of them soon to review for you).
Happy Reading.... Adri
