A new STANDALONE romance from New York Times bestselling author Jana Aston

Have you ever set out to have a one night stand with a sexy stranger?
No? I’m the only one?
Just kidding, I would never.
Ever.
Not usually.

But then I figured, why not? My entire life I’ve been good and it’s gotten me nowhere.
No job.
No apartment.
No boyfriend.

I’m owed a little fun, aren’t I? A reward for being good.
Sure, a new pair of shoes would be more appropriate, but Mr. Sexy Stranger is more appealing. And when he speaks—in that British accent—it’s a done deal. Every American woman has a hot British guy fantasy. Well, most do. I haven’t taken a poll or anything, but I’m pretty sure it’s a fact.

Except…
You know that saying about best-laid plans?
Good, because I don’t either, but I assume they go awry.
Like my one night stand…

Everyday, I’m so happy Jana Aston became a writer. What turned out as a dare, has made her a New York Times and USA Today best seller in the rom/com genre. I hope she never stops writing. Sure Thing came into my Kindle App at just the right moment. Without making you all depressed, with the devastation of 3 hurricanes, an earthquake and the senseless shooting in Las Vegas, I needed this book to get over the sadness, and Ms. Aston delivers with Sure Thing.

Violet is 26, after getting laid off from her dream job, losing her condo because of said lay off, she finds herself living with her identical twin sister, Daisy. Oh and to top everything off, her douche ex-boyfriends breaks up with her. Daisy, is the fun loving and daring twin, while Violet is the more sensible, responsible twin. That is until Daisy convinces her to twin switch and taking her place as a tour guide. Although ambivalent at first, what does Violet got to lose, right? Before she does this new gig, she figures, why not try have a one-night stand.

Enter Jennings, he’s super hot and can’t take his eyes off the raven-haired beauty giving him the socially awkward gaze. Did I mention, he’s British? Nevermind, keep reading. Of course, he strikes up a conversation with Violet, or rather Rose (fake name). He’s immediately taken, not only with her beautiful looks, but the word vomit she keeps spewing. Violet wants to get her groove on, she’s never going to see the hot Brit dude right? Wrong!

Turns hot Mr. Magic Mouth is one of her tour guests and something that should have turned out as a one night stand, well turns out like two weeks of romps in the sheets. Ah but the little “white lies” Violet tells Jennings start getting a little interesting. Jennings is not saint either, he’s holding back some vital information about himself.

Boy oh boy sexy times bonanza and add a little British dirty talk, well you’ll be changing your knickers too. Like, Violet, I too suffer from the same affliction, Anglophile. Why is it so hot to hear a British accent? Well Ms. Aston pulled it off in her writing, that’s for sure.

Violet is seriously adorable and her inner monologues is what I expect when reading a Jana Aston book. “I wonder if ‘cock up’ is a British phrase or if he’s talking dirty to me?” See what I mean.

Will Violet and Jennings come clean with each other about their “misgivings”? On release day you will just have to wait and laugh out loud and find out for yourself. So my next question for Jana Aston, will there be a Daisy book? She sounds to fun loving not to write a book about, you know what I’m sayin’.

“Mind if I join you?”

I look up and he’s standing beside my seat, a drink in his hand that he uses to signal towards the empty seat beside me. And what was that? Did I detect an accent? I think I did, but I can’t be that lucky. I swallow my nerves and quickly run my eyes over him. Tall. Fit. Oxford shirt untucked, paired with a worn pair of jeans. Leather loafers on his feet and the hint of end-of-day scruff on his jaw. Thick, neatly cut, well-styled dark hair and expressive brown eyes watching me with interest.

“I hope the drink is to your satisfaction.” He dips his head towards my beverage. “I asked the bartender to refresh you, but if you wanted something different…” He trails off with a small frown at my glass.

Oh.

My.

God.

Accent confirmed. I have just hit the holy grail of potential one-night stands.

“You’re British,” I say, fighting the grin from my face.

“I’ll take that as a yes,” he replies and sets his own drink on the bar top while resting on the stool beside me, his long legs bent slightly at the knees in order for his feet to rest on the floor. “Unless you have a problem with my country?” he inquires, brow raised and a small smile on his lips.

Do you know what’s great about British men?

Everything.

I mean, I’ve never met one before this and they’re likely no different than American men, but the accent. It’s everything, right? You can say it’s a cliché or whatever, but come on. It’s panty-meltingly good. I know he’s speaking the same language but the words just sound so much better falling from his lips.

“I’m Jennings,” he says, extending a hand, and I almost laugh. Jennings? It’s obviously fake. This guy is too old to have a trendy millennial name like Jennings. Also, it sounds British for ‘I’m giving you a fake name.’ But fine, I’m game.

“Rose,” I tell him and slip my hand into his. His hand engulfs mine and he’s not quick to withdraw, instead running his thumb gently over the back of my hand. I like the feeling a lot, the texture and warmth of his skin creating an immediate spark of interest in touching a whole lot more of him.

“Rose,” he repeats, pausing and tilting his head a fraction as if he doesn’t believe me. He shouldn’t, it’s not my name.

 

Jana Aston likes cats, big coffee cups and books about billionaires who deflower virgins. She wrote her debut novel while fielding customer service calls about electrical bills, and she’s ever grateful for the fictional gynecologist in Wrong that readers embraced so much she was able to make working in her pajamas a reality. Jana’s novels have appeared on the NYT, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestsellers list, some multiple times. She likes multiples.
