One Night in Edinburgh by Charlotte Howard ♥ Review Tour & GIVEAWAY ♥ (Erotica)

Chloe Shade has travelled to Edinburgh to meet up with a potential client, and has just twenty-four hours to convince them to sign her contract. But when she meets the delicious Ethan, he proves to be so much more than an enticing distraction. It’s not long before Chloe has some life changing decisions to make, and less than a day to make them.
This was a steamy, emotional, quick read!

This book was hot right from the beginning. While Chloe and Ethan made some choices that seemed, to me, to be in the realm of "unrealistic," the subsequent dialogue and monologues were much more believable. And so it went, from believable to incredible and back again, right to the end.

I liked seeing Ethan working through his transformation from "player" to something more substantial. Conversely, Chloe found herself going from "substantial" to the opposite end of the spectrum. It was interesting to read the opposites finally coming to meet somewhere in the middle.

All in all, it was one of those stories that made me think, "What if things like this really happen to people?" Hey, inspiration has to come from SOMEWHERE, right?! So maybe this story wasn't that far in the realm of "unrealistic" after all...

***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***
Chloe squeezed her eyes shut as the plane’s wheels bumped along the tarmac,
and her stomach lurched into her chest as the brakes were applied. Her ears flooded
with the sound of her own heart beating louder than the squealing and screeching of
the landing gear. Pressure built in her cheeks as she clenched her teeth together.
The worst hour in her life was almost over.

“Welcome to Edinburgh,” said the captain over the speaker system. “We hope
you had a pleasant journey and enjoyed the flight. Please remain seated with your
seat belts fastened until the light is turned off.”

A chuckle emanated from nearby. Chloe opened one eye and peered at the man
in the seat across the aisle from her.

“You can breathe again,” he said in an American accent, flashing her a grin.

“I think I’ll wait until my feet are actually on the ground if it’s all the same to you,”
she replied, leaning back into the headrest.

A loud ping was followed by a Mexican wave of clicking as the passengers
released their seat belts and fought to get their bags and rush off the plane. Chloe
undid her own belt then hurriedly squished herself into the seat as an oversized
belly, violently stretching at a pale green shirt, began its invasion of her breathing
space. Her shoulder was nudged as the impatient woman beside her stood up,
hunching under the overhead compartment.
