Blurb:

Chloe organizes Jo’s hen weekend in Amsterdam, glad to get away from the usual boring or married men that she sleeps with. Perhaps she’ll meet some cool guys up for a bit of fun. If not, at least she’ll make sure her best friend gets very drunk while they all party in style.

Dean is getting married to Tamsin, but having serious doubts. His mates take him to Amsterdam for one last weekend of debauchery before settling down for the rest of his life. But is Tamsin the right woman for him?

When Chloe and Dean meet in Amsterdam’s red-light district, they are immediately attracted to each other. Dean tries to justify one last fling before marrying Tamsin. Chloe feels bad about having sex with someone else’s intended. Yet, a night of amazing sex is exactly what both of them want. So, why shouldn’t they just enjoy one night of fantastic, guilt-free sex?

Review:

Book Six in Tirgearr Publishing’s City Nights Series, One Night in Amsterdam is exactly what it says on the tin – an erotic novella, set over the period of one night in a beautiful city.

Unlike most of the other books in this series, this is not a story of love at first sight, although there is the typical happy ending. You get what you pay for – a couple who meet in the notorious red-light district of Amsterdam, looking for a good time and getting it, but also much, much more.

It is well-written, and it is obvious that the author has been to Amsterdam before (probably on a stag weekend), either that or has done his research thoroughly. I liked the fact that the story wasn’t completely centred in the red-light district and hotel rooms, but we were taken on a stroll around the museums and sight-seeing spots as well.

I did feel a little bad for Dean’s bride-to-be considering this story does seem to play on his inability to tell her that he doesn’t want to get married, or even admit it to himself, and I was a bit concerned about Jo (Chloe’s friend, and also a bride-to-be) and whether she would make it down the aisle in the end! Chloe appears to simply pretty much abandon the hen-party, which left me wondering about both the character’s commitment and loyalty issues, and the only reason I gave this story four-stars instead of five.

Heat Level:

Scorching! Actively graphic sex scenes including foreplay. Explicit content that may not be everyone’s cup of tea. Also includes recreational drug use (cannabis smoking).
