I've finished "Diary of a One Night Stand by Alexandrea Weis.

Product Description

Resilient and practical, Kara Barton has continually strived to live a respectable life. She went to college, embarked on a promising career as an attorney, married a great guy, and always appeared to be the perfect wife and mother. But all is not what it seems, and the troubling past Kara has been running from her entire life is about to catch up with her. Urged on by her insecurities about growing older, and desperately wanting to feel one more night of passion, Kara agrees to share a tryst in a hotel room with a sexy business associate, Scott Ellsworth. But Scott wants more than one night together, and Kara quickly discovers it is impossible to resist him. Soon Kara finds herself transformed into the kind of woman she vowed never to become, and the secure world she has struggled all her life to build begins to fall apart.

My Review:

Kara Barton is a 40 yr. old wife and mother with a great law career.  She is married to a great guy and has a 10 yr. old daughter named Simone.  It seems like a perfect marriage but actually after Cal her husband had open heart surgery Kara feels her marriage is missing something. 

She meets Scott Ellesworth a playboy with tons of notches on his bed after months of arguing, unhappiness and keeping up the farce of keeping face.  Scott takes one look at Kara and is determined to make her his latest conquest.  Kara makes a hard decision to enjoy one night with passion with Scott but he wants more than one night.

I didn't really like Cal because I thought he was a neglectful father, bad tempered bully, loves his work more than his family and letting himself go as a middle age man.

I didn't really like Scott either because I thought he was sleazy and I hated the way he coerced Kara in doing things he wanted.  I'm glad that he isn't a bully or abusive to women and he did treat Simone and her dog decently.


Thanks Alexandrea for sending me your book to review, greatly appreciated!
