"Who wants that perfect love story any way, anyway? Cliché, cliché, cliché, cliché." ~ pg. 359
I let EJD take me along on an erotic suspenseful adventure that lasted just one night. No, it was not the perfect love story. Nor was it a classic thriller. It wasn't traditional in any sense. It was fulfilling. Mysterious. Gripping. Sexy. Alluring. Unforgettable. Dreamy.
An unlikely pair, or more like "two foolish idiot savants," meet at a gas station. So much happens between dusk and sunrise: con games, meals, accidents, robbery, hotel romps, fun, erotic bliss and more. One Night is a whirlwind fiction adventure that grabbed my attention from the first line to the last period. EJD has a way with words and intricate details. His ability to write from a female's point of view still impresses me umpteen books later.
One Night is 368 pages; though I could have easily read 50 pages more. I turned the ePages at a steady pace until the last chapter. I slowed down not wanting the story to end. I wasn't ready to stop reading about my new favorite grifter, Jackie, and The Man from Orange County. I sure hope Eric Jerome Dickey isn't ready to stop writing about them.
Power up your eReader of choice and pre-order One Night so it will be ready for reading on its release date in two weeks. If you prefer hardcovers, put this novel on hold at your local bookstore. Trust me. You are in for a good read. Now excuse me while I pop a mint then insert my name in the Acknowledgments section like I do every April in a new EJD release.
