First, I want to say that this book is extremely well-written. 'Discrete' is even used correctly (if you're using it outside mathematical and scientific usage, that is), which really impressed me. The beginning of the book has a LOT of backstory. We could have had a couple chapters of backstory just play out, really. Salinger makes sure you know pretty much every important thing that happens to the guys in the first two chapters...except one tiny secret that is so heavily hinted at, you kind of get it, anyway. I would have much rather read about these events than read an info-dump of the character THINKING about these events. However, it wasn't so long of a dump that you couldn't push through.
Then you get to the one night part of this book. And that is steamy (18+) and, again, well-written. Salinger makes the rest of the book one long night, but it's sweet. and the ending was somewhat surprising (but not...because it is billed as a romance). There are bits of sweetness that come from both the guys and it mixes into a very nice, intense night.
Mostly, I just wish there were more to the book. I want more story, more fleshed out background (scenes, not info, please) and maybe a bit of what happens in the future. This works well as a set-up to the next book about Joe (MC1's BFF) and Ethan (the bartender). It's a decent piece of erotica, but there was so little relationship development, I'm hesitant to call it more than that. If you'd like to dip your toes into the world of steamy M/M romance and erotica, this would be a good choice.
My total experience with M/M romances was one of Jr Wards books in her Black Dagger series a couple years ago which I did enjoy at the time but was really just a one-off as it was part of a series and had to be read really.
So One Night (Night Series, #1) by A.M. Salinger what did I think, well in a word WOWZER!!!. I LOVED THIS SO MUCH!!!
"One Night" is a short novella that certainly packed a punch.
It starts the story of Gabe Anderson and Cam Sorvino.
Set in Tokyo, Gabe has moved here to escape his dark past, he is haunted by demons that have crippled him dramatically when it comes to enjoying a healthy satisfying, relationship.
Cam also has past issues that have made him commitment-phobic when it comes to his hook-ups, preferring random encounters, he doesn't usually do more than one night.
When Gabe ends up in the most exclusive gay bar in the city, determined to overcome his demons and after years of therapy, Bi-sexual Cam instantly sets him in his cross-sights, determined to have the gorgeous stranger for the evening at any cost, Cam is not likely to let Gabe escape him that easily.
So this story, just wow its all sorts of hot, as well as also being extremely emotive.
The author has really managed to strike just the right balance between erotic and emotional.
These two men just seemed to compliment each other so well, Cam's confidence is exactly what Gabe needs to help him overcome his tragic past.
And I must admit I have developed quite the soft spot for the pair of them, especially Gabe his shyness and hesitancy just melted my heartstrings.
So after reading "One Night" I'm definitely hooked for the whole series and can't wait to read more especially as Gabe and Cam get there HEA in book three.
In this novella, they get there HFN which I am more than pleased with for the moment.
I'm also really looking forward to learning more about Ethan and Joe in book two, that snippet at the end of this ARC really set the scene so enticingly, I'm definitely invested now.
So yeh, I think its safe to say this was a definite winner for me and I have no problem recommending this, in fact, I'd go as far as to say this is up there with some of my favourite book couples.
I was provided with an ARC One Night (Night Series, #1) by A.M. Salinger of which I have reviewed voluntary.
