One Night Standards contains the best book boyfriend who is swoony and sweet from cover to cover!
Lyle Livingston is the kind of guy you swoon over from chapter to chapter and basically from page to page. Lyle is the best kind of book boyfriend; loyal, attentive, supportive, loving, AND so dang dirty between the sheets, I am obsessed with him!! This book requires a big glass of ice water to cool down between all the swooning. If I didn’t like Sammi so much, I’d be totally jealous of her.
Lyle is best friends with Sammi’s brother, so they grew up together and had sparks when they were teenagers, but never acted upon them beyond spending time together. Then Lyle left when he made it into the country music industry, but five years later, when Sammi is about to marry another man Lyle is there just in the nick of time.
Marrying Lyle was always Sammi’s dream, but she never actually thought it would happen, especially when he left to pursue his dream. Who knew her actual groom would ditch her on her wedding day and Lyle would actually step in to take his place. Pinch her because she must be dreaming…or perhaps let her keep dreaming because she never wants to wake up. Mrs. Livingston has a nice ring to it.
I totally admit, I wondered where the story was going to go when Sammi and Lyle basically fell in love right from the get go, but I was so, so, so totally wrong in my thinking. I should have known that Heather would write a beautiful book with all the emotions and laughter that I totally expect from her. One Night Standards was pure fire with a great friends to lovers trope tucked right in the gooey center.
