Tattoo artist Whitney Harris loves Valentine’s Day.

The bright colors, giant hearts, and sugary sweet coating that seems to cover the world on February 14th make her feel all kinds of warm and fuzzy inside. She may be more festive than the average person, but her plans for her long weekend are pretty tame. As long as she gets to stay in her bed, marathon a ton of romantic movies, and eat at least three of her favorite pink heart cupcakes, she’ll count it as a win. The very last thing she expects is for a handsome stranger to completely upend all of that.

The only thing Victor Grant enjoys more than being a barber is Valentine’s Day.

For him, it’s all about the experience of romance and the possibility of forever. The man loves love and he’s determined to be apart of his own great love story someday. Even if that means taking a few losses along the way when things don’t work out. Just when he thinks his Valentine’s Day has turned into a total bust, a beautiful stranger crashes into his life and suddenly makes his long weekend a lot more interesting.

A near-disastrous first meeting brings them together, but with both chemistry and desire running high, one sexy night together doesn’t feel nearly enough like true satisfaction.

Alexa, play One More Night by Busy Signal. (Now y’all should be familiar with this song because I introduced you to Busy Signal in October with their song Night Shift. The video I shared had both songs).

It’s February and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and if you don’t have any plans at the moment, fear not! Jodie Slaughter has a novella, Just One More, to get you through this sweet day.

Whitney Harris and Victor Grant both really love Valentine’s Day. Whitney dresses up, goes out with her girls and gets her traditional order of cupcakes every year. Victor, on the other hand, had the bright idea to go on a first date on Valentine’s Day. Spoiler alert, it wasn’t.

The night takes a turn when they end up in a rideshare together. It’s an interesting ride to say the least and soon, they’re at Victor’s apartment for a memorable evening. One night turns into two, two into three and well, you get the picture. 🙂

I liked both characters a lot. Whitney was artistic and expressive and Victor was a hopeless romantic (the key to my heart, tbh). They were fun and exciting, I definitely let out a chuckle or two while reading. The chemistry was palpable and almost immediate, and while they moved pretty fast the connection felt organic.

I haven’t taken an Uber or Lyft in a while but your girl might need to change that on Valentine’s Day on the odd chance I find myself a Victor. Ha!

P.S. I recently discovered Jodie’s work and am definitely a fan. White Whiskey Bargain? Honey! Put that on your TBR list STAT!!!
