He wants just one night…

After growing up with an abusive, alcoholic father, Army Special Forces Sgt. Brady Scott vowed never to marry or have kids. Sent stateside to get his head on straight—and his anger in check—Brady’s looking for a distraction. He finds it in his beautiful new neighbor’s one-night-only offer for hot sex, but her ability to make him forget is addictive. Suddenly, Brady’s not so sure he can stay away.

…what they need is each other.

Orphaned as a child, community center director Joss Daniels swore she’d never put herself in a position to be left behind again, but she can’t deny herself one sizzling night with the sexy soldier who makes her laugh and kisses her senseless. When Joss discovers she’s pregnant, Brady’s rejection leaves her feeling abandoned. Now, they must overcome their fears before they lose the love and security they’ve found in each other, but can they let go of the past to create a future together?

4 Broken Stars.

Joss was raised as an orphan girl. She never felt loved or wanted, and all she ever wanted was a family and somewhere to belong to.
Brady had a bad childhood with his father, after his mother passing, and swore himself he would never have a family and risk subject them to the same. ...more

This was a lovely, sweet and super steamy romance.

Brady Scott, sex God Special Forces soldier, tall, lean, built and totally gorgeous has recently moved to town. He’s been having anger management issues and has been ordered to get his head straight by his Commanding Officers before going back out on ...more

She shoots, she scores. I feel like a complete winner reading this series by Laura Kaye. Everything about this authors style I love, give me her to do lists and I'd gladly read them. Picking up 'one night with a hero' came as a result of deciding to go on a Brazen book binge and ...more

By Mo September 24, 2013

Read the first on in this series and really liked it. We got a brief glimpse of Brady in that one.

He and Joss meet at a Park, and get chatting and watch the fireworks together.

Brady is on leave from the military, trying to sort his shit out, so to speak. He has anger issues and was abused by his fat ...more

5 Hero Stars!

Brady is in the Special Forces and has to be stateside for a couple of years to undergo counseling for his anger problems which all stem from his "daddy issues."

Joss was an orphan has a child and has her own set of issues to deal with, namely never feeling wanted and no one wanting to k ...more

I started this book knowing that I love Miss Kaye's Heart in Darkness. One Night with a Hero started slow and bit boring to be honest. The ONS meet is bit cheesy. Then, the story picks up at the end where Brady groveling to get Joss back.

The back and forth with the Halloween is just so cute. I love ...more

By Auntee July 23, 2013

Wow did I looooooooove this one! But I'm stuck--what to say about it that will show how much I loved it?

Well, I won't go into the plot--the book blurb lays it all out there (and even includes a spoiler). I will say that I love a hero with some emotional hangups.. And Brady Scott does have some probl ...more

Four Stars

When his gaze returned to hers, his eyes were filled with heat, wide and penetrating and intense. Erotic tension filled the narrow space between them and made it hard to breathe.

I first noticed this book the day of its release. It was advertised on Facebook and I immediately loved the ...more

Great addition to The Hero series. I adored Joss!! Brady & Joss had an agreed upon "one night stand" but naturally nothing ever turns out as planned. Brady is an emotional train wreck and Joss suffers from abandonment issues. Both have very valid reasons for these issues, the road traveled to reach ...more

Wow! Wow! Wow! What a emotional ride this book was.. It had me laughing, made me feel like I was in a room that was 120°F, halfway trough it I was heart broken and yes I even cried a bit because Laura really has the power to suck you right in. While reading I lost track of the things that were happe ...more

Fabulous author and a must read book - 2nd in the series but can be read alone. Steamy and heartfelt - the perfect balance! ...more

By GraceMyBookSnack October 24, 2012

I could not get enough of Brady and Joss!

Right when I was about to start One Night With A Hero, the lovely Laura Kaye updated her blog with her inspiration for Brady:

Holy bulging bicep! Well, that visual certainly heightened my reading experience!

When I heard Her Forbidden Hero was going to have a s ...more

By Awilk -never sleeps- September 03, 2013

Another great read by Laura Kaye.

This was a quick steamy read that I devoured over a couple of hours. I really liked Joss, the female lead, for the most part. Brady, who I met in the previous book was exactly how I thought he would be. A typical man who has trouble facing his past and seeing his wa ...more

By Gitte TotallyBookedBlog November 01, 2012

I love Laura Kaye’s stories, they have hot romance, they have humour and a spectrum of emotions for real every day issues. She sucks you right into her story from the start and spits you out with a satisfied heartfelt and emotional sigh when you’ve turned the last page.

One Night with a Hero was a gr ...more

I picked up the audio version of this old fave of mine as soon as it was available. The reader is great and I enjoyed it even more the second time around.
If you've read the first book then you know Bradey and Elise's dad is a abusive and emotionally crippled since the death of their mom when they we ...more

Review Posted on Talk Supe 11/13/12

In One Night with a Hero, we are reacquainted with Army Special Forces Sgt., Brady Scott, whom we met in Her Forbidden Hero. Brady has recently moved back to the States after his commanding officers have ordered him to seek some help with his anger management issue ...more

4.5 stars. Absolutely enjoyable story. This is the second book in the series. I didn’t read the first one and found that this book works well as a stand-alone.

Did you hear that? I was being very SHOUTY, because I freakin' love her! She is so enjoyable to read and I always have to look up new words when reading her books. This book's word? Morass- 1- boggy or muddy ground. 2- a complicated or confused situation. I surely- should have re ...more

By Yvonne January 31, 2017

Really enjoyed this one - 4 Stars
We have the gorgeous tortured Hero who doesn't think he's good enough to find love. The spunky heroine who grew up rough but rescues the Hero from a life of loneliness. The Hero acts like a jerk more times than you can count but his groveling gets better the more he ...more

I liked it! Hot with a fun HEA. Good for a dose go hetero. ...more

By Heidi December 11, 2012

Here's the thing I've learned this past year about Laura Kaye - do not start one of her books when it's bedtime because the next thing you know, it's 2 am and you've finished. And than you're left all sorts of hot and bothered and dreaming of her characters and in this case it was uber sexy Brady.

Lo ...more

I really enjoyed this, good romance, steamy and emotional!!
The instant attraction and sizzle with Brady and Joss was hot!!! The flirting, teasing, hot sex!! The stories of their pasts was great and Brady's really pulled at me emotionally, yes I did even tear up (maybe even actually cried!), but I ju ...more
