Book Review including Teasers – One Night by A.M. Salinger 



by A.M. Salinger

(Night Series, #1)
Publication date: January 12th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, LGBTQ+, Romance



One night was all I asked for. For him to show me how good it can be. — Gabe
One night was all I promised. To give him the best time of his life. — Cam

Gabe Anderson wants nothing more than to overcome the scars of his past. Moving to a new city halfway across the world is one thing. Walking into the most exclusive gay bar in town to hook up with a perfect stranger is a whole new ball game.

Cam Sorvino doesn’t do relationships. Period. Having buried his dark childhood behind him, he lives life to the fullest and likes his sex hot, dirty, and for one night only. Though Cam’s instincts tell him that Gabe isn’t the onenight kind of guy, he can’t stop himself from approaching him. When Cam discovers the true extent of Gabe’s harrowing secrets, he makes him an offer he cannot refuse: one night of mindless pleasure to help him overcome his phobia of intimacy.

But when morning comes, will Cam be able to let go of the one man who is able to stir new feelings inside his cold, dead heart?

If you like sweet, sexy men with dark pasts and a whole lot of love to give to the ones brave enough to win their hearts, then you’ll love this first novella in the hot, contemporary romance series Nights by A.M. Salinger.

This is a MM romance with a HFN. Cam and Gabe’s HEA is coming mid 2018!




3.5 of 5 Stars


For a first-time author (as far as I can tell) this is a pretty good start to the series. Novellas are always tough for me because I like that we get to the good stuff quickly but the story and characters are hard to develop in such a short story.

We get a deeper dive into Gabe, learning some about his history. Cam we know next to nothing about and are left with some questions, especially after a 3rd character’s warnings/reactions to Cam and Gabe getting together. Gabe and Cam spend literally ‘One Night’ together but want to start something more. They have off the charts sexual chemistry but they connect on an emotional level as well. I’ll be anxious to see where things go beyond their first encounter.

You do have to suspend reality a little bit when reading because between the two of them, they have like 15 orgasms in one night which seems a bit far fetched to me (but maybe that’s possible). And I had 1 little nitpicky thing that didn’t affect the story and that’s the author’s continued use of ‘the latter’ clarifying which character was doing what. It was unnecessary and it was done enough that I thought about it every time it happened.

I’m looking forward to Gabe and Cam’s follow up story as well as the other books in the series.
