One Night with the Tycoon (Whiskey River Book 3) by Katherine Garbera

Book Blurb:

Meet the Kellys of Whiskey River, Texas, men who have always gone through life, and women, with their father’s legendary charm. 

Wyatt Kelly, CEO of Kelly Boots, is rumored to do everything with his cowboy boots on, including seducing women into memorable one-night stands. Growing up the second eldest son of a philandering charmer, Wyatt’s seen first hand how messy relationships can get when the heart’s involved, and he’s determined to leave no scars. No woman’s tempted Wyatt to break his vow until he meets Juliette Rossi. 

Juliette is all about business. She’s focused on turning the lavender farm she and her cousin inherited into a successful, world-wide company. Her meticulous plans are on the right track until she accepts a dare to spend the night with Wyatt after the annual Boots & Bangles Gala. Juliette’s fantasized about Wyatt for years... One night will get him out of her system for good, right? 


Can she convince Wyatt that he’s more than his Kelly heritage? Will Wyatt agree that one night just isn't enough? 

My Review:

One Night With the Tycoon was an enjoyable, hopeful, fast read.

The main characters are drawn to each other, even if neither of them has expectations beyond one night.  I liked that they were honest with each other, even after their one night together, when neither of them is sure anymore if that night could ever be enough.  But they both have issues that prevent them from believing more is possible.  Juliette is confident on the outside, but inside she's more insecure than most people know.  Wyatt is convinced he's more like his father than any of his brothers, and he'll never settle with one woman.  I was interested to see if they'd be able to work through this in the span of this novella...they both want so much more but are reluctant to admit to it.  There's some push and pull between them, tension, and some great chemistry that could supersede all of that if they let it.  I liked the dual POV that Katherine uses in One Night With the Tycoon...I love it when I know things other characters don't yet!

I really liked the secondary characters and that the relationship between the brothers is still a prominent sub plot that carries through this series.  Watching them get to know each other and what each is going through is so intriguing!  I also like that another sub plot runs smoothly through this book from One Night With The Cowboy, and that it is all very clear.

One Night With the Tycoon is a well paced, small town romance with a lot going on that Katherine manages to pull together smoothly in this novella.  I'd recommend One Night With the Tycoon to any romance reader looking for a quick escape!

4/5 stars
