Book Giveaway & Toni's Review of About Last Night by Ruthie Knox ***4 Stars***

UPDATED:  Added Book Giveaway at bottom of page!




Scheduled release date:  June 11, 2012


Sure, opposites attract, but in this sexy, smart, eBook original romance from Ruthie Knox, they positively combust! When a buttoned-up banker falls for a bad girl, “about last night” is just the beginning.

Cath Talarico knows a mistake when she makes it, and God knows she’s made her share. So many, in fact, that this Chicago girl knows London is her last, best shot at starting over. But bad habits are hard to break, and soon Cath finds herself back where she has vowed never to go . . . in the bed of a man who is all kinds of wrong: too rich, too classy, too uptight for a free-spirited troublemaker like her.

Nev Chamberlain feels trapped and miserable in his family’s banking empire. But beneath his pinstripes is an artist and bohemian struggling to break free and lose control. Mary Catherine—even her name turns him on—with her tattoos, her secrets, and her gamine, sex-starved body, unleashes all kinds of fantasies.

When blue blood mixes with bad blood, can a couple that is definitely wrong for each other ever be perfectly right? And with a little luck and a lot of love, can they make last night last a lifetime?





*******************************

What a fun read!  It was a refreshing change from the mass influx of Alpha men stories out there.  I could see myself falling head over heels for Nev.  Ms. Knox wrote an enchanting love story of opposites attracting and why the adventure of falling in love can be so much fun!

I loved Nev’s patience, devotion and love.  He went into this relationship knowing it was going to be hard to win Cath over and he never gave up.  While he may not have made good choices here and there, in the end he came through with flying colors.

Cath is one tough cookie.  I have to give her credit for making the most of her hard life and not allowing it to consume her.  She was at times relentless in her perseverance to NOT to fall for Nev, but I think in the end it made the story all the more endearing and sweet.

Ms. Knox has a knack of creating characters that are different from the norm.  From cross country cycler to banker/painter, you never know what type of man you are going to get.  I LOVE IT!!  So far I have been in love with every male she has developed and I look forward to her next.  Her books are engaging, well written and such a pleasure to read.

Fantastic characters, hot sex and a great story, all combine to make up About Last Night.  This is a wonderful feel good novel and shouldn’t be missed.  Another hit for Ruthie Knox!!


Thanks for reading - Toni!!

Hey Toni...Loved your review. Short enough to let me know whether or not the book would suit my taste and not long enough to spoil it for me (without a spoiler...if you know what I mean).

If I'm already acquainted with an author, I generally buy with little more than reading the blurb...and I don't need to read an intense review. I like reading the next book by an author I know almost cold turkey. If I don't know the author, then I do my research homework.

In this case, I loved the first book, Ride With Me, that I read by Ruthie Knox and I've already preordered About Last Night.

No worries, if I should happen to win a copy, I have a good book bud that I would gift in a heartbeat:D

I forgot to answer the question: I would pick the artist type. I have always thought of bankers as stuff, but artists are free-willed. I like that!

Great review, going to order both books now!

wonderful review, toni! i would choose the painter because i would understand an artist more than anyone who'd become a banker.

Great review. This book looks great. Ruthie is a new author for me and would love to win and read this book.
I would take either but think I would like the banker best. I love the artist type, but need something more steady. If you would have asked me when I was in my 20's, hell yes the artist type would have been it. I know need something more, especially with two kids. Thanks for the great giveawy.
