Lessons From a One-Night Stand

Piper Rayne

The Bailey’s
Contemporary Romance
If you’re a guy like me, and you find yourself having banged your sexy new boss —the school principal — in the back of your Jeep one drunken night, here’s a few takeaways based on my experience… Lesson One: always get her FULL name. Lesson Two: consider asking what she does for a living. Lesson Three: find out why she’s moved to town. Get details. Details are crucial. Lesson Four: don’t alter her bio in front of an auditorium of high school students unless you know she has a sense of humor for that sort of thing. Lesson Five: if you ignore Lesson Four, apologize instead of flirt when you’re sent to the principal’s office. Lesson Six: NEVER sleep with her again. Lesson Seven: pay attention to this one, it’s the most important of them all. Don’t fall for your one-night stand. Class dismissed.

Welcome back everyone, I hope you enjoyed my review of To the Stars and Back. Today I’m reviewing a book that came to my attention from other bloggers reviewing it and it sounded great.

I’m happy to say that I enjoyed the story as a bit of light hearted fun between being bored to tears doing short courses for research for my diploma. The one thing that held me back a little bit reading this one was Game of Thrones starting up again and having all my brain power being zapped by theories.

My first response to this book was that it sounded hilarious. But at the same time, surely, you’d know something was up if a hot new girl has just moved to town days before the new principle starts at the school you work for? Or is that too practical for a romance?

I found that there were a few too many plot twist things happening to really be invested and drawn in properly. I mean really, how are there this many twists?

  1. Holly is Austin’s new boss
  2. Holly is only staying 3 months
  3. Austin leaves in 3 months
  4. Lake Starlight Buzz Wheel
  5. Holly’s come to find her dad
  6. Holly’s dad is Austin’s family’s nemesis
  7. Austin’s youngest two sisters are causing drama
    about college
  8. Phoenix doesn’t want Holly and Austin to end up
    together and is trying to ruin it
  9. Everyone else in Austin’s family wants them
  10. Everyone else in Austin’s family decides they
    don’t like Holly because of her dad
  11. Holly’s mum rocks up out of no where

Like, I’m all for a good couple of twists so you don’t see it coming. But I felt like RIGHT as I was getting invested in one of these something else popped up and ruined it for me. Sometimes less is more. In this case, streamlining the story and expanding on Austin and Holly more could have given me so much more and really hooked me in.

My mind can’t keep up with two Game of Throne level craziness stories at the same time.

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this review, next week I will be reviewing Heart of Stone by Ben Galley.
