Cady is still reeling from her one-and-done night of passion with a sexy guy she met at a bar—she’s still overwhelmed just thinking about it!—when she unexpectedly comes face-to-face with him again. It’s bad enough that Mick lied about who he was, but now Cady discovers he’s about to become her…what??!
*Story contains explicit/steamy scenes that are intended for mature readers.

What makes Mick & Cady from The Allnighter such a great couple? 
For them it’s very basic: he’s generally laid back and she’s a bit repressed. That might sound like a clash, but actually it’s perfect, because Mick can get her to relax. To lighten up—and even be uninhibited. They are physically attracted to each other from the beginning, and Mick has a way of drawing out Cady’s hidden passion, and disarming her with his confidence. 

What should readers know? 
The Allnighter is a continuing story. You will definitely want to stay tuned to see how Mick and Cady’s intense relationship evolves. What starts as a passionate hook-up, turns into a tension-filled “platonic situation” as they face their parents’ upcoming wedding and try to stay away from each other... 
Note: The Allnighter is a continuing story. Stay tuned for Part 2 coming soon!

EXCERPT 





“Cady, all I can say is I’m sorry. Just tell me this: were you ever going to use my number?”

Suddenly it was hard to breathe. She’d stared at that number a thousand times. Maybe it was pride that made her lie, maybe it was self-preservation. Maybe it was knowing that their parents were dating and possibly—albeit insanely—might get married, and that this whole thing with her and Mick needed to disappear. But, unapologetically, she said, “Of course not. We agreed, once and that was it. Now we need to honor that.”

Apparently her prim tone didn’t scare him off. In fact, Mick surprised her by giving a gruff laugh—and leaning his face even closer. “No, we don’t.”

“W-what do you mean?”

“Cady, come on. That one-and-done crap was never going to work with us; I knew it as soon as we started kissing.” Did he have to say it all sexy and confident like that? She could feel stirrings she didn’t want to feel. Her mouth suddenly felt dry, while another part of her was getting wet…

Suddenly Mick’s mouth was by her hair. “Damn, you smell so good right now,” he whispered.

“Oh, God…” Cady eked out weakly, feeling like they might start kissing or something right there. “Mick, stop—we can’t do this here.”

“You’re right,” he agreed on a short breath. “So, your apartment later?”

“No,” she insisted, putting her palm between them and giving his chest a shove. Too bad it reminded her of how hard and strong his body was, which reminded her of how good he was with his hands. “I mean that we can’t do this now or at all,” Cady stated firmly. Someone had to stay in control here. “Our parents are dating,” she said emphatically. She didn’t reveal that her dad was on the cusp of proposing. Instead, she shrugged and said vaguely, “Hey, they could end up married or something. Which would obviously make anything with you and me unacceptable.”

“Sorry—but it’s not obvious to me.”
