ISHO Summary

One night. That’s all it was supposed to be.

Blake Thomas’ entire career as a Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation has led up to this one job: submerging himself in a lifestyle of fast cars and even faster women. He’s deep undercover, building a case to bring down an intricate criminal ring of car thieves in Las Vegas, with no time to think about the one woman he can’t seem to forget. He never imagined his past would become tangled with his present, threatening to be his downfall.

Two years ago, Carly Mathewson planned for a one-night stand with a perfect stranger. What she didn’t count on was being reminded of him every time she looked into the emerald eyes of the daughter they unexpectedly created. Since that night, she’s devoted herself to keeping her life simple. But when her past refuses to stay buried, she’s determined to do everything she can to keep it from jeopardizing what she’s worked so hard to achieve. Suddenly, everything and everyone Carly has known aren’t quite what they seemed.

Every present has a past. Before they can secure a future together, Blake and Carly are forced to admit that their lives are linked by so much more than just that one night. Without warning, they’re bound together for life.


I’m fairly new to Lacey Black’s books, thanks to Joanne who told me about Lacey’s books when we met in Montreal.  When I heard about this book I was intrigued and looking forward to reading it.  Lacey did not disappoint.

Carly and Blake have a one night stand which ends up being so much more.  She’s been living her life with her unexpected but definitely loved daughter and he’s been working at an undercover job that he’s so tired of.  Each wondering about the other.  I sat on the proverbial edge of my seat waiting for their lives to intersect again and wondering what would happen.  So much suspense and intrigue.  I couldn’t put this one down.  I even had to call my book bestie to vent and throw some theories around.

I loved the dual POV.  I’ve mentioned before that I always love reading a male POV.  Lacey Black made me love both characters so much by letting me get into both of their heads and by letting me know their feelings.  I’m looking forward to reading more of her books and not just in this series.

I had originally given this book a rating of four but the more I thought about it, the more I thought that it really is deserving of five hot and delicious cups of java.
