About Last Night by Ruthie Knox
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?
My Two Cents:
Let me start off by saying. Sue Grimshaw made her twitter profile pic Ruthie’s About Last Night book cover and I think we can all agree–HOT. So there it was, taunting me, teasing me, just out of reach. I didn’t know Ruthie (still technically have never met her in person) and had not as of yet read anything by her. Fast forward, Ruthie and I began showing up on tweets together–twitter folks know how this can happen, you answer someone else, they respond to more than one of you at a time, and so on.
So, I start following Ruthie.
The more I follow her, the funnier I see she is. This is a biggie to me. I love authors with good senses of humor. It got me wondering if this translated over to Ruthie’s books. You all know I tend to shy away from reading Contemporary Romances. There have been very few that I devour. But, that damn sexy cover and Ruthie’s sense of humor just keep pulling at me. Fast forward some more…
I was lucky enough to get an ARC (advance reader copy) of About Last Night by Ruthie Knox. It did NOT disappoint. It had me laughing out loud more than once. I fell in love with Cath’s outlook on life, her desire to truly be a reformed bad girl but no matter what, she falls into old habits. And Nev, oh Nev… (excuse me, I need some alone time now) is written in a way that he just leaps off the page at you.
Ruthie has a witty way of writing and she pens a hot hero. I never wanted a banker more in my life.
Disclaimer (that makes me look like a douchebag): I went into this book assuming the sex scenes would be more suggested than actual or at the very least glossed over. I stand corrected. Wow. Penned beautifully AND sexy! If you’re looking for a great, funny, sexy, contemporary romance read, Ruthie’s About Last Night is it!
I just bought her other book Ride With Me and can’t wait to dig into it.
