Blog Tour & Review ~~ One Night with the Millionaire by @SSchroeder_

Sanday’s 3.5 Blush Review

Tess Howland’s a single mom in her 40’s with a demanding job as a nurse.

Miles Prescott is a millionaire, good time with no strings type of guy.

Until these two meet and then all bets are off.  She’s thinking he’s a one night stand. A best sex of my life type of 1 night stand! He’s thinking she’s gorgeous and one night stand. As it turns out, it becomes much more than he could ever have imagined.

I understood why Tess was hesitant to let a man “help” her but it comes across as a little harsh.  Her ex is a not a present parent. Miles is younger and has no responsibilities. Mixing in children always makes things more complicated.  Miles is totally out on a limb here but he wants Tess in his life -permanently.

I loved that these characters were older than the typical romance published currently.  The dance of kids, exes and new loves is very much a part of real life these days.  In One Night with a Millionaire, the kids added laughter and levity.  It was needed here.  Honestly, great sex is great, and lord know I love all things steamy but I didn’t get their connection.  I didn’t love Tess but I LOVE angst and that there is aplenty.  I also appreciated Shannyn Schroeder giving us dual point of views.

About the Book:

Over-forty, single mom Tess Howland’s life is all about caring for other people. Indulging in a one night stand is just what she needs. She doesn’t expect to meet anyone she would introduce to her kids, especially not some rich playboy who acts like a big kid himself. Even if he keeps giving her the best sex of her life.
Millionaire Miles Prescott can’t get the sexy nurse he met at a fundraising gala out of his head. For the first time ever, he doesn’t want a woman with no-strings-attached. He wants everything—even it comes with a ready-made family with a woman in her forties. Suddenly, helping with homework doesn’t sound like the worst thing in the world, especially if it means being near Tess.
But what happens when he’s ready to step up and she says no?

Meet the Author:

Shannyn is an occasional English teacher, who also works as a part-time editor while raising her three kids.Even though she wrote from high school through college (mostly poetry), she’d never considered a career as an author. Writing fell by the wayside as she focused her energy on creating lesson plans and new and fabulous ways to torment her teen students. One group in particular dubbed her “The Torture Master,” a title she carried into motherhood.

After the birth of baby number two, Shannyn resigned from teaching and fell in love with reading romance novels. She read so many books so quickly that her husband teased, “If you’re going to read so many damn books, why don’t you just write one?”

So she did.

That first book is safely buried on her hard drive, but the process set Shannyn on the path to where she is today. The 6-book O’Leary series has wrapped up, as well as 2 Hot & Nerdy new adult trilogies. She’s currently working on her next series.

She is recovering from her Diet Coke addiction, fears putting her foot in her mouth on social media, and has a renewed appreciation for the bad girls of the world.
