As much as I absolutely hated One Night of Scandal, it’s the complete opposite for One Night of Trouble. I liked both its hero and heroine. AJ and Brett cloaked themselves in personas that are a sham of their true inner beings. While this case is truer for AJ than for his lady-love, Brett has had her share of career-related troubles due to the bad choices she’s made in the past. It’s never more apparent how family-owned businesses run in real life than in this fictional work. Brett’s family has more pre-conceived notions about her than anyone else in her life, unfortunately. AJ, on the other hand, perpetuates a good-boy-next-door picture of himself that is just martyrdom personified.
All-in-all, I’m glad I decided to finish off this series, despite how it started for me and how the second book almost ruined it for me. I got lost in the story and couldn’t wait to see how AJ and Brett find their HEA.
P.S. I am hereby decreeing that Darcy the Bitch be eradicated from my mind. Reed, in my head (as he’s an imaginary person), will marry someone else who’s better and has more loyalty and truth in her very essence, when compared to Darcy the Bitch’s character.
