Memories of the past come flooding back - The Forever Night Stand by Bena Roberts

"This was darkly hilarious, and I almost felt guilty for laughing at some of it because I felt so bad for the characters - but they were making the jokes, so I guess it was okay. [...] It is great fun and a quick read with a happy ending - perfect for a quick pick-up and a reminder than in spite of life's challenges, love can and will prevail. " - Cecily, Goodreads
