Get ready to laugh out loud, swoon, and fall in love with this new, fun, and sexy stand-alone novel from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig. Demonstrating her versatility in writing, Aleatha revisits her lighter side that you loved in PLUS ONE.
A complete stand-alone, ANOTHER ONE is the next big summer hit.
Trevor Willis is sexy, sweet, and oh so fun. He’s also my best friend’s brother-in-law. That should mean he’s off-limits, or that I should be off-limits to him.
Someone probably should have told us that before my best friend married his brother, before the morning of the wedding when we woke in each other’s arms with gaping holes in my memory.
The hilarious truth behind our crazy, secret adventure secured this handsome, off-limits man in my heart. But alas, life goes on. After our one secret night, we went back to our lives—our hardworking, solitary lives.
And then it happened.
My phone began to buzz. Each night with thousands of miles between us, we laughed, talked, and shared. And then, the phone stopped ringing.
Before it did, I knew one thing...
Our secret one had bloomed and blossomed, and now that our circumstances have changed I want another one!
Shana Price is that one woman. You know, the one who suddenly makes the world more than a place to work, but also a place to live. Usually shy and awkward, in her presence I want to be more—I am more. I don’t even have to try.
She’s my one. I knew it the moment I first met her. What followed simply confirmed it.
The problem is the little hassle of the thousands of miles between us.
I tried to make it work, but each phone call made it harder. (Yes, that is a pun) I couldn’t take it any more—and she became the one who got away.
Now, everything has changed.
Shana is back in the United States—all I have to do is make her see that her job isn’t the only reason to stay.
That shouldn’t be a problem, right?
From a secret one to another one!
Try Aleatha’s lighter side for a guaranteed smile—the perfect getaway.
Have you been Aleatha’d?
Aleatha's "Lighter Ones" are all stand alone lighter romances guaranteed to make you smile, possibly shed a tear, and definitely enjoy the ride! They may be read in any order.
“When I’m around you, I say things I’d never say. I want things, things I’m willing to do anything to get. I also want to be everything you deserve.”
Sweet and tangy.
Shana Price tastes like sugar with a twist of lemon.
My mind tells me to go slow, reminding me that I don’t have any right to this beautiful woman. My mind is saying to stop, yet her soft moan is all I hear.
My body has its own GPS with the destination close. Listening to my mind is out of the question.
Her petite body shivers as I tease her sweet lips. They willingly part as my tongue delves inside, wrestling with hers.
Not giving up its fight, my thoughts remind me how forward this behavior is and how it isn’t like me. Trevor Willis is not a man who chases a woman down, pins her against the wall, and kisses her until neither of us can breathe or cares.
It’s not me.
But, it should be.
I like it.
I won’t blame the alcohol. I’ll blame my need to know it’s really Shana and to claim her for my own. I didn’t do it last time, and I’ve regretted it every day since.
When her hands come to my chest, I seize them, lifting them above her head and pinning them to the wall. Shana doesn’t fight; instead, her hips move against mine and our kiss grows more passionate. In the dark, crowded hallway, with my body pressed against hers, I swallow the soft moans coming from her throat.
At that moment, I want to be anywhere but a crowded bar in the middle of Manhattan. I no longer care about Eric’s bachelor party or my friends. I don’t even care about Kimbra back out in the bar. All I want is to whisk Shana away and do what we didn’t do before, what her body and mine are ready and aching to do.
I make no secret of the fact that I live for the darker, out of the box, push you to edge romance books. It’s my thing, my book crack if you will. Aleatha is on the list of authors that I guess you could call “my dealers”. That may make me crazy but I’m having a hell of a time over here.
In between reading those books I like to cleanse my palate with lighter, easier reads. They help keep the crazy at bay and remind me of the good in the world. Or the normal if you have never dabbled in those other books. We all have our own version of normal, mine’s just a little more colorful.
Aleatha has an amazing talent that makes her writing at both ends of the spectrum seem so easy. She can do light and dark with perfection. Another One is just another example of her talent shining bright on the lighter side. It has the heat, the laughter and the slow burn romance everyone enjoys. This series of hers is yet another reason why I love her. If you haven’t checked these books out, you need too.
“I wouldn’t be opposed to repeating some of the history.”
“Oh no, my lady. I want to make another one.”
“Another history. One where I don’t let you get away.”
