Blurb
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 in Stiletto magazine are consistently the publication’s most scandalous—and the most read. But Riley has a secret…all that sexy talk? Not an ounce of it comes from personal experience. Her own bedroom escapades are more limited than even her best friends know. When her editor requests that all columnists write something more personal for Stiletto’s anniversary issue, Riley turns to the one man she’s always been able to count on and calls in the favor of a lifetime.

Sam Compton would do anything for Riley McKenna. Anything except be her experimental sex toy. He refuses her request. At least until she tells him that it’ll either be him or she’ll go to someone else. And that, Sam can’t accept. Reluctantly he agrees to her terms—one night of completely meaningless sex in the name of research. Riley thinks she’s prepared for what awaits her in Sam’s bed. After ten years of writing about sex, actually doing it shouldn’t be that different, right? So wrong. What starts as “one time only” becomes “just one more time.” And then one more. And before they know it, Riley and Sam learn first-hand that when it comes to love, there’s no such thing as just one night.

My Review
Riley is great at her job. Writing tips for a great sex life. Only problem is she doesn't have a sex life. She has only been with one person and it wasn't anything to write about. Now she has to write a personal article and she knows she needs to have some great sex to write about. She just has to convince the guy she wants to go along with it. Sam has always wanted Riley but never crossed that line. He is like an extra member of her family and doesn't want to ruin that. Plus he doesn't want to be another notch in her bed post. When Riley tells him either he sleeps with her or she finds someone else he steps up. They agree to one night but that may not be enough for two people who have always loved each other.

Riley is a great character. She puts up a good front that she is a sex expert and has guarded her secret closely that she knows nothing about sex. She is a very sexy woman and tries all kinds of tricks to get to Sam. Sam has gave everything up for his dream but is afraid to finish his dream. He is used to being talked down to and is afraid to disappoint the people he caress about. Riley has always been the woman he wants but he made a promise he doesn't like to break.  It shows how much he likes to keep his promises and how much he cares for his friends.

This was a joy to read as Riley and Sam both want each other so bad and Sam keeps fighting it. Riley isn't one to give up and pulls every trick she can to convince him to be with her. Riley's friends are awesome and I loved reading about them as well. Her family is simply amazing. There is tons of sexual tension in this book as one is fighting not to be together and the other is fighting to be together. Even together Riley has to really push Sam to look at what he is doing in his life. She pushes him to do more but for good reasons.I could not stand Sam's mother and hate how she warped him in many ways.  He has to learn to feel better about his self and to really do what he wants. I liked this book and would recommend it to anyone wanting a great story about great people.
