Kylie may be a makeup artist to the stars, but she knows what it feels like to be overshadowed. Especially by her famous boss, the pop star Daphne. That’s why she’s stunned—and delighted—when one night at a party, she attracts the attention of a gorgeous stranger. But when Daphne decides she wants the handsome billionaire for herself, Cade Archer is suddenly off-limits for Kylie…

Cade has known Daphne for years, and always wondered if she might be the right woman for him—even though she never gave him the time of day. But one sizzling night with Kylie has changed everything. So why is she suddenly avoiding him? Fortunately Cade is determined to get what he wants, and he’ll do anything to show Kylie she can get everything she wants too…

joint review

Sara: Can I just say that I was thrilled beyond relief that this was NOT a romance between Cade and Daphne. I mean, I love Cade, he's strong, charming, and a really good guy, but Daphne is a selfish, prima donna junkie. It just did not seem feasible ever for these two to get together.

I also liked being able to cheer for the chubby girl. As a plus size woman it's nice to see myself represented in the books I read and I'm not talking about some character with a "rounded belly" or "lush curves". I'm talking about a heavy (Kylie is dubbed "Fat Marilyn" by Daphne.), beautiful woman with self-confidence and body issues who has her talent and character called into question because of her size. 

Monica: I totally agree with this on both points. I was slightly scared about Daphne at first but I do have to say I hate her. She is a junkie and a jerk to everyone and I really didn’t see any redemption for her. I also love Cade. He is a nice guy but I don’t think he is the traditional “nice guy” he just seems like that way on the outside. Some of his enticements of Kylie were definitely firmly in the naughty zone. I do love that she is a true plus size heroine and just not lucky enough to be blessed with J-Lo’s proportions and deemed curvy.

Sara: I mentioned before that I love Cade and I did in all of  Jessica Clare's previous Billionaire installments, but not so much in this book. I thought Cade was a bit of a dick in One Night with a Billionaire. I don't know if he was supposed to come across as someone who was tired of being Mr. Nice Guy or just a guy who knows what he wants, but he, a billionaire, threatens Kylie's job, her only form of income, so that she'll  continue their relationship. To me it seemed a departure from the kind and generous Cade we've seen in books past and it kind of left a bad taste in my mouth.

Monica: That made me angry and I felt it along the lines of Christian Grey's idiocy. Everytime he threatened her job and she didn’t set him straight I wanted to shake her senseless. I give him a few props for wanting her so much he might not have been thinking straight but he did come off as a jerk a few times.

Sara: I really thought One Night with a Billionaire had a great balance of serious content and the sexy playfulness Jessica Clare is known for. When you have a character with addiction issues and also a character with issues of self-worth a writer has to address it head on or the issues come across as trite ways to create conflict. I thought Jessica Clare handled them well and without using the issues to create an overbearing morality tale.

Monica: I’ve only read two other books in this series (the first two I believe) but I enjoyed them. This book runs along the same line of contemporary crack (no pun intended) as the other titles. I will say this book went a little further into the risk taking territory with the drinking, the drugs, as well as a few others things that might not be traditionally in the safe zone for a couple or a romance novel for that matter. Overall I enjoyed One Night With a Billionaire and will continue reading Ms. Clare’s books.
