Peppa Grant’s fellow employees may call their new CEO Mr. McSexy, but she’s also heard that he’s aloof and distant. Cameron McCormac certainly seems cold toward Christmas when she meets him at the company’s annual party…but he’s also the sexiest man Peppa has ever seen. And when he offers to forgive the damage she accidentally caused to his expensive car in exchange for accompanying him to his family’s holiday get-together, she agrees.
Cameron needs a date to the family party to get his matchmaking relatives off his back. Their chemistry is instant and undeniable, leading to an incredible one-night stand. But Peppa wants love and family, while Cameron’s only interested in temporary pleasure. When their relationship takes an unexpectedly serious turn, will he run the other way—or will he give love a second chance?
One Perfect Night by Rachael Johns is a delightfully romantic and sweetly sexy story. Will Peppa Grant and Cameron McCormac’s one night of pleasure turn into a lasting relationship?
Ms. Johns’ fabulous character development makes One Perfect Night a stand out read. Both Peppa and Grant are wounded souls with painful pasts. And yet they perfectly complement one another.
Peppa is a fun character to get to know. She is sexy and sweet, and her caring personality leaps off the pages. On the other hand, Cameron has suffered serious losses in his life and his character is a little darker than Peppa’s.
The plot and various relationships are also well-developed. The interactions with Cameron’s family are humorous and heartfelt. I love how they accept Peppa’s rather quirky appearance at their Christmas Eve dinner and welcome her into the family.
Peppa and Cameron’s relationship is a joy to watch unfold. They take the time to get to know one another and their dates consist of romantic dinners, fun adventures and quiet evenings at home. While neither Cameron nor Peppa is looking for a romantic entanglement, they are unable to resist the passion that simmers between them.
One Perfect Night by Rachael Johns is an engaging novel with a superb cast of characters. It is an emotional read that will tug at your heartstrings and leave with you with a smile as Peppa and Cameron find their happily ever after. The epilogue is the absolute perfect ending for this wonderful feelgood romance.
