Genre: Erotic Romance

Resilient and practical, Kara Barton has continually strived to live a respectable life. She went to college, embarked on a promising career as an attorney, married a great guy, and always appeared to be the perfect wife and mother. But all is not what it seems, and the troubling past Kara has been running from her entire life is about to catch up with her. Urged on by her insecurities about growing older, and desperately wanting to feel one more night of passion, Kara agrees to share a tryst in a hotel room with a sexy business associate, Scott Ellsworth. But Scott wants more than one night together, and Kara quickly discovers it is impossible to resist him. Soon Kara finds herself transformed into the kind of woman she vowed never to become, and the secure world she has struggled all her life to build begins to fall apart. Kara Barton is about to find out how a one-night stand can change everything.

Joanne Brothwell's Review:

Diary of a One Night Stand is a shockingly honest account of the journey through marital infidelity, starting with a steamy sex scene and immediately followed by the guilt and shame of the aftermath. The character, Kara Barton, is well-fleshed out with appropriate conflicting emotions, competing loyalties and ends up learning some painful truths about herself in the process of her indiscretion.

Kara is tired of struggling to keep her disappointing, loveless marriage together. She meets Scott, a gorgeous, powerful man who sweeps her off her feet. Despite the rumours that Scott is a womanizer, to Kara, he’s loving, attentive and fiercely loyal. As she navigates the difficult process of leaving her husband and moving on in her relationship with Scott, details emerge that have Kara questioning her original assessment of Scott. The end was shocking, leaving me feeling uncomfortable and bereft. While the author ties things up, I was left with the heavy imprint of Kara’s agonizing experience in my heart.

Well-written, fast-paced and absorbing, Alexandrea Weis takes you on an emotional journey from page one!
