It's a Jungle Out There

The 1 Night Stand Series

Dating in general can be a bitch. Most especially when the people that you normally date are either too self-absorbed or too money hungry to notice you for who you really are. The next best thing to going into exile is to hiring a match maker who will introduce you to your dream partner. Sometimes some people are not looking for all encompassing love and devotion. Sometimes people are looking for hot and sweaty sex that can distract them from their hectic lives for a few hours. In It's a Jungle Out There by Stephanie Williams mixes these two scenarios to perfect results.

The premise of the story is simple enough: Olivia Carter is no longer fooling herself. She knows there is no such thing as the perfect man. Tired of the crazy dating scene, she decides to take the advice of her best friend and sign up with 1NightStand. Her requirements are simple: Drop dead gorgeous, strong silent type, great in bed. Simple, to the point, and no expectations of anything grander. Madame Eve has no problem fulfilling her list.

Maxwell Evans is a hot and upcoming actor. But already he's disillusioned about finding the ideal woman. Sick of dating nothing but shallow beauties who are more interested in riding his coattails than anything else, he checks out 1NightStand. He'd rather have a night of passion with a woman that knows nothing about his fame, than a long-term relationship with someone that has hopes of fame and fortune.

Max and Olivia will find out that they both wanted more than they're willing to admit.

It's a Jungle Out There is a wonderful and absorbing novella that had me smiling from ear to ear from beginning to end. The characters are adorable and their chemistry is off the charts. While I am not really a fan of from lust to love in sixty seconds, I found that this story was charming enough to surpass those negative feelings and just enjoy the story as a whole.
