A winning anthology of second chance stories. This anthology combines two favorites that I love to read, second chance love stories and being introduced to new authors. The fact that J. Kenner is part of the compilation is just an added bonus. This is Penny and Blake’s story. Penny met Blake a few years ago when he asked her to essentially run away with him. The time was not right and she turned him down. Fast forward and Penny is now working for Stark Enterprises and who should walk back into her life but Blake. Are the feelings still there between them? Can they make a relationship work and get their ‘second chance’? I volunteered to read an arc for a review.

Another Great Stark Novella!. "I wanted tonight to color in the black and white lines of my memories" I really enjoyed this novella! I gobble up anything by J. Kenner and her Stark stories are amazing! In One Night, Penny is haunted by the memory of one amazing night with Blake. But now her past is front and center when Blake re-appears in her life, showing up at Stark International to meet with her boss, Damien. Does Blake even remember her? Did that one night mean to him what it meant to her? You'll love this short and sweet, and steamy second-chance novella! You can never have enough Stark Stories!

I love a great Anthology!!. **One Night Review** I love that One Night is based in the Stark World. I have to add, since I am crazy about him, we get a peek or two of Damien. But Damien is not the man starring in this Novella. We meet a sexy green eyed alpha male named Blake. When Penny and Blake run into each other after their "One Night", it is like fireworks are going off. These two sizzle and they were in deep. The anticipation this Novella gives you when Penny is freaking out having to face Blake at work gave me the butterflies. I could feel her excitement, dread, and my heart was pounding. J. Kenner does a fantastic job making you feel everything. I know this was a short Novella but I wanted to stay leeched onto Blake a little longer. One Night was a perfect short story that gives you a whole lot of sexy. Blake is perfect for Penny and vice versa. I loved getting to know Penny a little more. This story is what you need to get your fix from a One Night.

Amazing, hot story. J. Kenner has done what I thought was the impossible, make a short story you wish wouldn't end. Penny and Blake are from the wonderful world of Damien Stark (who just happens to make an appearance). These two loves had a chance but fear stood in their way. One line from Blake say's it all: "Sometimes you have the chance to get back the things you lost". This story will have you laugh, cry and want to hit someone over the head!! Amazing story I could not put down until the end.

One Night.... One Night ~Second Chances a Romantic Writers of America anthology J Kenner The ONLY negative thing I can say about One Night is it's too short...I want more! Blake is really giving Damien and Jackson some stiff competition...he may have already passed Lyle up as well. I love these men in Stark World. “Sometimes you have the chance to get back the things you lost.” There’s a low, sensual quality to his voice that I recognize, that seems to vibrate through me like a low roll of thunder. He takes a step toward me. “I guess this time I got lucky.” For such a short story this read gives you so much~yet leaves you wanting so much as well. I'm hoping this is just a glimpse into Blake and we will get a second (and third) chance to see how much or little control he really has over Pen.

I wish I was luck Penny. I Loved this WAY to short but perfect read. Julie introduces us to another perfect couple, and keeps us in line with the Starks as well. Penny and Blake have you intrigued within moments of starting this. I am only reviewing for this novella, however I am looking forward to reading the others as well. I hope to read more in the future about Blake and Penny.

Loved it. All the feels for One Night! Whether you've followed the Stark books or not, One Night can be read independently. Penny and Blake shared one night together. Will too much time apart make for a bitter reunion? Julie's writing is always so much fun to read. Her Stark World short story is filled with amazing descriptive writing and steamy sexy time. An outstanding read!

Love second chance romances!. So far, I've only read One Night in this collection, but let me tell you, I can't wait to read the rest of them! One Night is a standalone novella set in the Stark world, and features Damien Stark's secretary, Penny, and her one night stand from years ago- Blake. These two sizzle and pop. Love the steam, love the romance, absolutely cannot wait for more!

enjoyed One Night by J. Kenner and the characters' passion for each other, it was fun read.... *Review for J. Kenner's One Night* One Night by J. Kenner is a second chance short story about Penny and Blake. Two years ago they met on a plane and had an amazing, earth shattering night, after which Penny decided not to take Blake up on his whirlwind offer of Hawaii and something more between them. He hasn't been off her mind since. Now he just so happens to be having a meeting in the building she works in. I liked how well written One Night was. Even though it is quite short it feels full. Penny goes through all sorts of internal turmoil in a very short time that adds to the realism. Both she and Blake are one of those too good to be true, don't want to admit it's love at first sight, couples. J. Kenner manages to give us backstory, history, and future goals for Penny, all in a fast, enjoyable and passionate read. Overall, I very much enjoyed One Night by J. Kenner and the characters' passion for each other, it was fun read. I happily recommend. (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book I received for free in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.)

Steamy Second Chance. One Night by J Kenner gives us another wonderful peak into the Stark World. The story is quick, but packed full of alpha hotness and steam that this author give us time after time. I'm always excited to meet new characters in this world, and Penny and Blake are fantastic additions.

Killer read from J. Kenner One Night.. I'm looking forward to reading the other stories in this book, but this current review is for J. Kenner's One Night. This was a hot, sexy read. The only problem? It wasn't long enough! I need more Penny and Blake! The way this story started out had me drawn in immediately. Blake was an unexpected surprise in Penny's world. I was intrigued by them. I enjoyed the way we got their story bit-by-bit and the chemistry between them was H-O-T-T! I devoured this story and was lost in their world. Their second chance was a unique spin on it and I also enjoyed being back in Damien Stark's world, so we got a brief glimpse of him as well. I loved the pull Penny and Blake had on each other and I wanted to stay wrapped in their world! He was commanding and didn't let this second chance pass him by. *swoon* Grab your copy now and be prepared to get sucked in and not get anything done! Bookworm problems! :)

Short & Steamy. I read One Night by J. Kenner. This is probably one of the steamiest and sexiest short stories I've ever feasted my eyes on! Could it be because it's from J. Kenner and set inside the Stark world? Absolutely!! Although I would love a full length book for them, Blake & Penny don't really need any more than we are given to convey the fact that they never forgot their one hot night together and they needed this second chance to show them they are truly meant to be. I would really love to see them again in future Stark books to see what they are up to though!

One Night is NOT Nearly Enough!. ***Review for One Night by J. Kenner*** Can a true connection occur in one night? Can a matter of hours create something worth risking everything for? These are the questions J Kenner tries to answer in her newest short story set in the Stark World. And while readers only get a small glimpse into the chemistry between Penny and Blake, it's clear that what developed between them in one stolen night can only grow as long as they're both willing to take a risk on one another. One Night is a short and steamy second chance story that illustrates how fate sometimes steps in when someone needs a little guidance and direction and while there's minimal character development and background about Penny and Blake, what the story does is give readers hope that one's ability to get back something precious and life changing can occur when it's least expected. I'd love to read more about Penny and Blake's one night together and what they're doing now that Penny's given herself to Blake. Any story in the Stark world has my interest and the passion that exists between Penny and Blake would absolutely be a worthwhile read! 4 Poison Apples (The Fairest of All Book Reviews)

Fabulous group of authors delivering an incredible group of stories. This is an amazing selection of stories from a fabulous group of authors though I haven't read all the books in the collection yet. One Night by J. Kenner: Penny is Nikki’s free-spirited best friend. She really wants to be an actress but is finding it much harder than she thought it would be. She meets Blake and has an incredible one-night with him then leaves, well, actually runs. When he shows up at Stark Industries where she is temping, she is shocked and doesn’t know what to do. But Blake knows what he wants and that is Penny. Will Penny give in or will she run scared again? Such a fun, sexy short story. I loved getting to learn more about Penny and see that she might find her HEA just like her best friend Nikki. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.

Arc for honest review. I am reviewing J.Kenner's "One Night". This was a super quick read/novella set in Stark World for me. This is a second chance brief encounter romance. I do wish this was just a little longer i.e. an extended epilogue of a few months later so we can get a little better picture of how the story plays out between two. Hopefully they'll be mentioned in another book to get this closure.

***Review for One Night*** - J. Kenner is the Queen of Second Chane Romance. I rounded it up to a 4, but this was more of a 3.5 star read for me. This truly is a short story that is a second chance romance that takes place in the Stark World. Sylvia, Jackson, and Damien all pop their heads in for a hot second. This was a little too short for my liking, but it's also part of an anthology. Hopefully the story is successful and J. Kenner will re-release this story with an expanded plot as a standalone (fingers crossed, some authors have done this). If you're a fan of the Stark World there are certain things you have come to expect; hot alpha male who is quick to voice his feelings, beautiful female trying and succeeding at bettering herself and also guarding her heart, and delicious steamy moments; and you definitely get that in this story. I'm definitely interested in checking out the rest of this anthology when it releases.

Great quick read!. What an awesome introduction to other authors of this genre! I read One Night by J Kenner, and look forward to reading the rest as well! Another sizzling hot, sensual, romantic story set in Stark World - Definitely hoping we see more of Penny and Blake!!

Great read. One Night by J Kenner I love anything this author writes but mention Damien Stark or the Stark World and I'm jumping up and down with excitement. This Novella did not disappoint. Does Love at First Sight exist, can a forever connection happen in a few hours and if so is it worth risking everything for ! This is a glimpse into Penny and Blakes story, yes it's a Novella but that doesn't mean there is any less of a story told, a couple with a past and sizzling chemistry , Penny can't believe Blake is in the building ,then the elevator doors open will this be a chance to put the past behind them and maybe give them another chance at love..... I would really recommend this Novella and I hope we get a full novel about this couple .
