About Last Night

About Last Night is the latest ebook release from Ruthie Knox. From Amazon’s website.~
Sure, opposites attract, but in this sexy, smart, eBook original romance from Ruthie Knox, they positively combust! When a buttoned-up banker falls for a bad girl, “about last night” is just the beginning.
Cath Talarico knows a mistake when she makes it, and God knows she’s made her share. So many, in fact, that this Chicago girl knows London is her last, best shot at starting over. But bad habits are hard to break, and soon Cath finds herself back where she has vowed never to go . . . in the bed of a man who is all kinds of wrong: too rich, too classy, too uptight for a free-spirited troublemaker like her.
Nev Chamberlain feels trapped and miserable in his family’s banking empire. But beneath his pinstripes is an artist and bohemian struggling to break free and lose control. Mary Catherine—even her name turns him on—with her tattoos, her secrets, and her gamine, sex-starved body, unleashes all kinds of fantasies.
When blue blood mixes with bad blood, can a couple that is definitely wrong for each other ever be perfectly right? And with a little luck and a lot of love, can they make last night last a lifetime?

I was lucky enough to win an early copy from the author through NetGalley. I loved Ruthie’s first book and couldn’t wait to read this one.

I loved both Cath and Nev. Both had seen each other for sometime in passing at the park and train station, but only when Cath ends up drunk and Nev comes to the rescue, do they really find one another. I really liked that Cath called Nev “City” most of the time, since that was the nickname she had come up with for him when she saw him around. Liked even more that Nev pretty much always called her by her full name, Mary Catherine. It was just so sweet.

Not that either didn’t have a few secrets not shared with the other. While Cath’s secrets were from her past, Nev’s secrets had to do with his present. Even secrets and different lifestyles can’t seem to stop the attraction between them. Cath and Nev have some of the best chemistry together. Their love scenes were so steamy; I thought my kindle screen would fog up a few times.

Secrets do have a way of coming out at the worst possible time. Nev’s really wasn’t that bad, although when it was revealed made it seem worse. When Cath shared her secrets, it brought me to tears. I had grown so attached to both characters, I hated to see and feel her pain. Nev really does have to step up his game to make things right with her.

In just the 2 books I’ve read from Ruthie Knox, I’ve seen great emotional range and she is now an auto-buy author for me. I love that I not only get super sexy scenes, but heart-felt emotion with each relationship. About Last Night is another winner from Ruthie Knox. The official release date for About Last Night is June 11, 2012 and can be purchased at your favorite on-line retailer.
