In Lauren Layne’s sizzling Sex, Love & Stiletto series, 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 the publication’s most scandalous—and the most read. But when Stiletto’s fiftieth anniversary issue requires her column to get a lot more personal, Riley is forced to confront a long-hidden secret: Her own sexual experience is limited to one awkward college encounter. Now Riley is about to call in the favor of a lifetime from the one man who’s always held her heart.

Sam Compton knows two things about Riley McKenna: She’s the only woman for him. But as his best friend’s little sister, she’s also completely off-limits. Sam shouldn’t even consider her proposition: to have a one-night stand in the name of research. But the thought of another man putting his hands on Riley is more than Sam can handle, and soon he’s agreeing to one night with New York’s resident sexpot. But Riley’s full of surprises, and what starts as “one time only” soon becomes “just one more time.” And then one more. And before they know it, Riley and Sam learn firsthand that when it comes to love, there’s no such thing as just one night.

I loved this book! Riley had a dream job as the country’s hottest sex expert. Sam was her brother’s hot best friend and has promised his best friend that he would never lay a finger on his little sister, but little sister wasn’t so little anymore. Riley has been half in love with Sam since she was 17. The magazine Riley writes for wanted to publish a personal story for the magazines 50 year anniversary. This is where Riley panics because while she is known as the sex expert and writes about sex she doesn’t have a lot of personal experience to draw from. Riley decides to proposition the man that she wants to teach her everything. They agree to just one night…..but would it ever be enough? I really enjoyed their story. I learned after reading this book that it was part of the Sex, Love & Stiletto Series and I now need to find and devour the first two books.
