A flirty, sexy contemporary romance from bestselling authors, A.L. Jackson and Rebecca Shea . . .

Kaylee Rose Burton, kindergarten teacher, has never been a believer in fantasies.

I had an absolute blast writing this collaboration with one of my very best friends, Rebecca Shea, and we’re so proud to bring it to you. It’s a departure from what we typically write, but there is something about it that just hit the spot 😉
I hope you love Paxton and Kaylee’s super fun, sexy story ❤

MyReviewI really enjoyed Kaylee and Paxton’s characters, and they were both very down to earth and fun. This actually surprised me in regards to Paxton, considering he was this stunningly handsome mega-movie star. I thought for sure he would be pompous and arrogant, but instead he was really charming and sweet. He sure was smitten with Kaylee, and I loved how he was so protective of her knowing that the paparazzi could completely tear her to pieces. As a kindergarten teacher, Kaylee lived a much simpler life than Paxton, and I could totally relate to her feeling like quite the outsider to the Hollywood lifestyle. I worried about her innocence and how she would fit in but loved her courage in stepping into Paxton’s world!

Paxton whisking Kaylee away to London was pretty dreamy! He really went out of his way to make the trip special for her, and I enjoyed seeing Kaylee’s excitement as they traveled. Things were complicated for them, because they came from two totally different worlds. However, their relationship seemed natural and fun, and they certainly had some sizzle going on!

I did have a bit of a disconnect from Paxton and a hard time believing his depth of feelings for Kaylee so quickly. I could definitely see how she was a breath of fresh air for him and how well they fit together, but it seemed really ‘insta-love’ and over the top at first. It took me awhile to get settled into the story with Paxton and Kaylee’s relationship flowing at such a rapid pace, but I eventually caught up and enjoyed their happily ever after!

The dual point of views made both Paxton and Kaylee’s characters even more endearing, and I really liked Kenneth, Paxton’s PR representative in London. His loyalty to Paxton and kindness towards Kaylee really stood out to me, and I figure you at least need to have someone you can trust in order to survive the tough Hollywood lifestyle!

Rebecca Shea is a new-to-me author, but I’ve been a big fan of A.L. Jackson’s writing for quite some time now. I think they’ve created a fun and engaging story here, and I liked the Hollywood feel. The detailed descriptions of all the ‘ins and outs’ that come with that lifestyle seemed very realistic, and I also appreciated that they kept a light hearted feel to the story and didn’t make it overly complex.

One Wild Night was an enjoyable read, and I look forward to the next book in this Hollywood Chronicles Series, One Wild Ride, releasing in June 2018!

** an Excerpt copyRoger Ward was truly brilliant.

And by God, so was the face that entered the screen. It was an outright crime for a man to look as good as Paxton Myles, and now I knew first hand it wasn’t just photoshopping and lighting.

So maybe in this film he was playing eighteenth century English Royalty.

None of that really mattered.

Because the man was a freaking Greek God.

The air stirred, a whoosh of quieted activity at the empty seat that was supposed to belong to Elle.

My breath hitched. I struggled not to inhale, struggled not to look. Struggled to pretend as if I wasn’t hit with an overwhelming urge to turn and bury my nose in that masculine scent I could feel prodding at my senses.

The way my chest was heaving and my hands curled around the armrests had to have been obvious enough.

Suddenly he was there, pushing into my personal space, his mouth at my ear. His Southern accent that had me in a puddle earlier was now twisted to match the character on the screen. “He’s a good-looking bloke, isn’t he?”

I had to shake my head to clear it of the stupor. My chin tipped up toward him, my eyes narrowed in a scowl. “Excuse me?” It came out an accusation.

He just sent me one of those belly-flipping grins, the magnitude of it lit up in the frames flicking across the screen. “That bloke there on the screen. You seemed a little…impressed.”

“Um, wow. Someone’s full of themselves, aren’t they?”

I sent the words with all the confidence I could muster, hoping they would knock him down a notch.

His cockiness just grew. Those full lips tweaked into a smirk. “Oh, Kaylee Rose. Don’t act like I couldn’t tell you wanted to climb right over these chairs and fall into that screen. And here I am, in the flesh. No need to go pretending when you can have the real deal.”

“Shh.” It was all a frantic whisper, my eyes wide and wild as they jumped to Roger and Lindsay, praying they weren’t noticing who’d slithered up to my side.

God. Did the man have no shame?

His hand found the slit on my dress, his fingertips light, so, so light I had to wonder if he was really even touching me. Still, the energy eliciting a cascade of chills, an illicit feeling washing me in thigh-clenching desire.

“I like your dress.” He whispered it like a tease.


No shame whatsoever.

He inched closer, and I lost all my breath. My hands clutched tighter to the armrests, and I gave it my all to keep my breaths from panting out of my lungs.

“Stop it,” I hissed.

“Stop what?” Oh yes, he could play it off as all kinds of innocent. But I could see the mischief glinting in the brown of his eyes.

“Stop trying to get a rise out of me.”

“Is that what I’m doing? Getting a rise out of you? I’m fairly certain it’s the reverse.”

  1. I’ve seen some mixed reviews for this one but nothing you’ve mentioned is a deal breaker for me. I can handle insta-love if it makes sense to me (don’t ask me how…it’s all in the way it’s set up LOL).

    Sweet review, babe! I will grab this one!
