Book Review: ONE NIGHT ONLY by Lynsey M. Stewart


What if you met the right man at the wrong time?

He’s a male escort.
As in, he has sex for a living.
As in, my hard limit.
I’m supposed to be writing an article about him, not falling for him.
But something about Matthew Shaw makes me want to suppress that hard limit.
He’s smart, funny, and too beautiful for his own good.
But he makes his money through orgasms…and I don’t share.
I can’t. I won’t.
But I still want to.

There are reasons why I escort.
Reasons no one knows.
But when Stacey waltzes into my life, with her eager questions and fiery red hair, I start to imagine a different kind of life. The life I can’t have with her.
She’s the one I’ve been waiting for.
The gorgeous journalist who lights up a room.
But how can I ask her to stay?
If I stop, if I give up, I’ll lose everything.
I wish I could tell her why.
I can’t. I won’t.
But, God, do I want to.

‘You’re lovely and I like you a lot. Your eyes tell me that I can trust you, but your profession gives me full body anxiety and that won’t do.’

So, you meet a man that ticks almost all the boxes except for one very important one that you can’t accept. What’s a girl to do? This is the dilemma Stacey finds herself in when she finds herself attracted to Matt – a male escort - in a way she hasn’t ever felt for another person before.

I find such topics interesting in romance novels. It brings realism to the story when characters are faced with situations where there are no definitive answers. Where do the characters draw the line? Is there a ‘no man’s land’ these two can exist in given Matt’s profession? Or is this a situation they should walk away from?

I definitely wanted these two to get together; the attraction between them was beyond palpable, and often had me feeling like I had interrupted them. Talk about feeling like a third wheel!

I enjoyed this book. Matt and Stacey were facing serious personal issues that placed them in positions where they had to question their belief systems and work towards a resolution they could themselves live with. Stewart has shown another facet to her writing by delivering a story that balances lightness with seriousness, and sloughs off the heavy cloak of angst that pervades some of her other books.

ONE NIGHT ONLY. I liked it. 


Lynsey M. Stewart enjoys writing stories about characters that experience a few bumps in the road before finding their happily ever after (also known as contemporary romance with plenty of heat) She lives with her husband, her soulmate and muse, along with their gorgeous, precious, ridiculously independent little girl. Lynsey began writing after being inspired by great books, amazing writers and beautiful stories that she couldn't stop thinking about long after reading the last word. If she’s not writing, you can usually find her with her head in a book or singing along to music. She’s hopeless, but she enjoys pretending to be Adele every once in a while.
