This is retired MLB player Gabriel Torres' story. He has inherit a new business and juggling life with the possibility of being the last man left on the field while his friends settle into married life. While at his best friend's Super Bowl game, he bumps into Rachel - literally.
Rachel and Gabe dated years ago in college. They meet again by chance. At different point in their lives Gabe is retired as a result of an injury and Rachel is an ambitious writer trying to write the story to define her career. The attraction between them is sizzling hot and Rachel ends up spending the night with Gabe but sneaks away the next morning never expecting to see him again. That is until her story leads to Philadelphia and she reunites with Gabe. Together they embark on a fling with sizzling sex and a genuine friendship.
The One Night Stand will satisfy any romance reader. It's complete with witty dialogue and sizzling bedroom sex scenes. I have read so much erotica romance lately, its great to remember a contemporary romance can be brilliantly hot and spicy. The bromance with Gabe and his friends is priceless. The dialogue is downright hilarious, easy to read and flows so effortlessly and beautiful. Gabe was the perfect mix of sweet charm and sexy-as-sin alpha male. Plus the snarky supporting characters from the previous books are so likable and reason enough to check out their stories. Kick back and relax and make your heart happy with this fun romance!!!
Gabe has been one my favorite characters so far. I love Ben and Jace, but there was always something special about Gabe, probably his ability to make me laugh, that tugged at my heart throughout the series. He was a secondary character that just never stayed in the background. His personality came through in the books. He really is the full package. Don’t get me wrong, he is by no means perfect. He stretches the truth a bit to impress Rachel. Although he never had to do that, but that did show his vulnerable side.
Enough gushing over Gabe, now let’s get to Rachel. I liked her; how could I not? I even liked her when I saw her through Gabe’s memories of her in college. She was beautiful, but her greatest quality was her tenacity of reaching her goals. However, that became on of her faults as well. She put herself at a crossroads, her career or Gabe. I wasn’t sure which she would choose in the end. I could understand her questioning the relationship with Gabe. He was a player. That was the reason she never got serious with him in college. She definitely had a hard decision in front of her.
One of my favorite aspects about this series is underneath each story is a deeper, more important story going on. This one addressed the media and privacy. Rachel was the perfect example of that. Some athletes do become celebrities and with that comes fame, but should it cost their right to privacy? No one story on them shows who they really are as a person. The authors really did a great job of asking those important questions.
Sports romances have become one of my favorite genres to read, and this series stands out in that it’s about friends who each play different sports. I have learned a little something new with each book. My most favorite thing is the friendship and the family they have created. Their bond runs through each book I have read. The epilogues are just the icing on the cake for me. I LOVE them!!!!!

Gabe is a retired baseball player, who has taken over the ownership of an exclusive club, made up of current and former sports figures.
Rachel is a sports reporter, who has gotten a tip about a secret sports club.....but hasn't been able to find anything concrete.
Rachel and Gabe went to college together, but Rachel was afraid to take that leap.... so she didn't. Reunited as adults, things seem to click. But they are both still afraid to trust. Lies are told, secrets are kept. With Gabe's life going one way, and Rachel determined to find the truth about the Players Club, I just couldn't see how they could find there way to be together.
Gabe seems to be a very sweet man, slightly lacking in self confidence. He struggled with keeping part of himself that he was hiding from Rachel, as their relationship grew. Rachel also was hiding things from Gabe, which led to problems between them.
This was a very enjoyable, second chance romance, well written, and kept me entertained throughout. Definitely one I'd recommend to anyone that likes sports romances, even though there isn't a lot of focus on the sports element.
