Savvy, hard-riding, rule-breaking—they’ll go anywhere and do anything it takes to protect and serve. But this U. S. Marshal has just met his match—and playing for keeps is one sizzling game… Getting saved from disaster by a handsome stranger—Harper Allen has no problem with that. But when he leaves without a word or a clue to his real identity, the newbie reporter writes it off as the best one-night-stand she’ll never have again. Until a year later, when Harper comes face to face with the man assigned to hide her from a senator’s killer… Galen Kelly hasn’t forgotten a single sensual minute of his night with Harper... or that she betrayed him. But with the FBI also on their trail, he’s got to pretend he’s never met her or risk both their lives. But as danger closes in, Galen may not be able to protect himself from taking the biggest risk of all…

One Night More is the first book in the U.S. Marshals series by Mandy Baxter. It’s a romantic suspense featuring a hot U.S. Marshal and  feisty reporter. If you are looking for a perfect escape romance One Night More is sure to please.

Coffee dates with One More Night

First Date: Holy melts your pants hotness. Baxter introduces us to Galen Kelly, a hot, dedicated U.S. Marshal who has recently been promoted and flies out to Paris in the morning. He is at the bar with his best friend and fellow marshal when he witnesses a jerk slipping a roofie into a girls drink. The girl turns out to be recently graduated journalist Harper Allen. The two share some drinks, engage in conversation, laugh end up having the hotness hook-up ever. A misunderstanding has the two parting ways in the am, before learning each other’s name.

Second date: Fast-forward a year and our heroine Harper Allen is an ace reporter, and in some serious trouble. Eager to get an interview with an elected official she witnesses a murder and finds herself a target. know where this is going right? Yep, Galen Kelly and his team are assigned to protect Harper. Both are flabbergasted, but Galen pretends he doesn’t recognize her. Ouch. The attraction between the two makes the air crackle with sexual tension, but his career and miscommunication, no scratch that..the lack of communication has them both feeling hot and bothered. Things are complicated from the FBI, to someone wanting Harper dead. Harper begins investigating and keeps slipping the marshals. I think Galen needs to put her over his knee. One More Night is well paced, and between the tension and murder mystery, I was completely engaged.

Third date: Holy hotness…Baxter brings on the heat even as she notches up the danger. The chemistry and their emotions feel genuine. At this point, I am not setting the book down; laundry be damned. The story wrapped up nicely and didn’t feel rushed, allowing me to bask in the closure and  savior my HEA. One Night More was an excellent start to the series, despite a few eye rolls regarding procedures I was satisfied with this sexy, intense story. Landon McCabe, U.S. Marshal and best friend of Galen has his story next and I am excited. I enjoyed the banter and snark between Galen and Landon.

Totally recommending One Night More to those looking for a heat and suspense. This was fun, sexy and a good start to the series!

    Yes please! I’ve been enjoying suspense a bit more lately and this looks like a great one. I’m not a huge misunderstanding fan but I tend to be okay with them when they happen at the beginning before the characters really know each other. Definitely going on the TBR!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Romantic suspense is one of my favorite genres. I had a lot of fun with this 🙂

  7. Lily

    I really like the sound of this one (aside from the lack of communication between the two of them) Kim!!! I just finished a fantastic romantic suspense story, so I’m definitely in the mood for more. Looking forward to meeting Galen and Harper:)

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Agreed communication is good. It wasn’t overdone thankfully and I get some of it. This was a fun read and I am anxious for the next one.

    Great review Kimba 🙂 I enjoyed this one too, unfortunately the narrator was a miss for me 🙁 I’m hopping we get a new narrator for the following books, I’m also looking forward to Landon’s story.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Ooo what a bummer, this was such fun and I am learning a bad narrator can hurt a book

  10. Nick

    This sounds like a fun book, Kim! Although miscommunications is making me want to run far away from it! 😀
    I do like the sound of romantic suspense + hotness though! 😉
    Lovely review!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Don’t let it deter you, it wasn’t overdone..just enough to keep you flipping the pages 🙂
