ARC Review: A Dangerously Sexy Affair by Stefanie London

Title: A Dangerously Sexy Affair

Author: Stefanie London

Synopsis:

Ready, player one…

Quinn Dellinger is supposed to be having fun at an industry party for gamers. Instead, all she can think about is the promotion she just got passed over for at her security firm. Then she spots him. Tall? Check. Dark? Check. Dangerously sexy? Check. Hell, yes—this is the guy who'll help her forget all her worries and give her one wickedly naughty night.

The next morning she discovers her one-night stand was the guy who took her job. Oh, hell no. But Aiden Odell is not just a security specialist, he's ex-FBI, and Quinn is expected to work with him—very closely—on a major assignment. He may be tall, dark and dangerously sexy, but this is one game Quinn is determined to win…

***MY REVIEW***

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

After reading Loving the Odds last month and enjoying it I jumped at the chance to read Stefanie London's newest book and that was a really good decision on my part because I ended up loving this book even more. A Dangerously Sexy Affair was a super hot contemporary romance and I couldn't get enough of Quinn and Aiden.

Quinn was so feisty and unique, but had some serious trust issues that could be frustrating at times, but given her reason for said trust issues everything was understandable and I really liked the way the author dealt with the whole situation. While I have never gone through what Quinn did everything felt very realistic to me. And then we had Aiden, who checked off so many items on my what makes an awesome romance hero check list. He was a really great character who got my heart racing with his swoon-worthy actions throughout the book. But while I loved him a lot he could also be a little frustrating at times thanks to the hang-ups he had about feeling like he had to prove himself all the time. But like with Quinn's trust issues, the author dealt with his hang-ups in a very believable way and honestly it made his character seem more real instead of just a perfect ideal.

The romance that ignited between Quinn and Aiden after a one night stand where neither of them exactly knew who the other was was super steamy but also had an emotional depth to it that I really enjoyed and made me root for these two even more than I already was. My only complaint with the story was I was expecting a much bigger climactic moment towards the end when they found out who was leaking the information. Everything was resolved so quickly and given everything else that was happening I was expecting so much more.

Overall, I really loved this book. It was a fun and sexy contemporary romance novel and now Stefanie London has become one of my auto-buy/auto-read authors because I'm craving more of her writing.
