Desire can have dire consequences
Two years ago, David Madden made a mistake that almost cost him his marriage. His wife, Alison, gave him another chance, but she has not forgotten, nor has she forgiven.
She is irresistible
Then David meets the alluring Nina at a theatre in London. When he loses his phone in the dark, she helps him find it, and by giving her his number he unwittingly invites her into his life.
What David initially views as an innocent flirt turns into a dangerous game of deception. His increasingly suspicious wife thinks something is up, and each lie he tells pushes them further apart.
She is insatiable
Nina pursues David relentlessly, following him to New York where she gives him an ultimatum: sleep with her, just one time, and then she’ll get out of his life forever; or she’ll ruin everything he holds dear.
She is unstoppable
Of course, once won’t be enough for Nina, and what David hoped would be the end is merely the beginning.
A modern-day Fatal Attraction, Just One Time is a steamy psychological thriller that will have you hooked from the first page and holding your breath until its shocking conclusion.
David is married to Alison and two years ago he did the worst thing and cheated on her, Alison forgave him but has not forgotten and the last two years life has been hell for David who feels he’s constantly walking on eggshells trying not to upset Alison. One night he meets Nina an incredibly attractive young woman who he can’t help but flirt with, after all flirting is harmless right? Wrong, even though David gives Nina a false name she won’t leave him alone, following him everywhere and driving him nuts she says she won’t give up until she gets one night with David and then she’ll be gone or will she?
This is a very intense read which drops the reader straight among the tense atmosphere between David and Alison which doesn’t let up until the end of the story. The intensity heightens when Nina joins the story and you will probably have that feeling of dread in your stomach while the plotline reaches its peak. For me this happened in New York as after that I felt the plotline fell apart a little and wasn’t quite as believable and gripping for me.
The characters in this book are not the likeable kind. David is selfish, arrogant and does exactly what he wants and then wants forgiveness and reassurance when things don’t go exactly his way. Alison was hurt by David but she’s still bitter after two years and does everything to make him feel inferior, perhaps giving us an understanding as to why he wants comfort elsewhere. I just found Nina obsessive and insecure and would have like more understanding of why so was so psychotic.
I found this an okay read but didn’t feel it had the ending to match the beginning. This is an intense read full of sexually explicit scenes and language to match but for me was more of a plotline. I will still look out for whatever the mysterious K.S. Hunter writes next.
