Madison Barnett spent one-night with a stranger that changed her life forever.

But when she takes a job at Parr and Associates as their newest architect, Madison has no idea that the stranger she has spent five years trying to forget is about to walk right back into her life. And what she hoped would be a fresh start turns into a perplexing dilemma.

Soon Madison’s life is sent into a tailspin as she tries to juggle the demands of her controlling boss, Hayden Parr, with her persistent desires for her long lost sexy stranger.

Then, just when she thinks all hope is lost, everything changes.
Madison embarks on an education in the art of pleasure that began five years ago in the bed of the man who captured her heart. But there is one little catch…

When fantasies become reality, passion can turn addictive in…That Night with You.



“Madison,” a sultry voice called over her right shoulder.

When she turned, Hayden was standing behind her. Her body tensed when his eyes peered down at Adam’s hand in hers. “I need to speak with you.”

Instantly, she let go of Adam’s hand. “Of course.”

“Is this about the designs?” Adam butted in. “Because I have a few more things I would like to—”

“No,” Hayden barked, cutting the young man off, “this is about something else entirely.”
Seeming relieved, Adam gave a slight shrug and then nodded. Letting Hayden take her elbow, Madison allowed him to pull her away. When they went to a corner of the dining room, Hayden let go of her arm, and his eyes surveyed the room before he finally spoke.
“I’m sure you already know the Martins are very interested in your design.” He lowered his head. “They were very impressed with you. I have to say, so was I.”

“Thank you.” Her voice was barely above a whisper.

“However, they have some changes they want to make, quite a few changes actually. I want to find out if you’re all right with that.”

Madison nodded. “It’s their house. I’ll do whatever they suggest…as long as it’s structurally possible.”

“Good answer.” He slowly grinned, appearing pleased. “We need to speak more about this tonight, but not here.” He glanced over at Adam standing by the buffet tables, taking in their every word. “How did you get here? Did you drive?”

“A friend brought me. She’s going to pick me up later.”

He hesitated, his lips smashing together in an unflattering scowl. “I’ll take you home. We can talk in my car.”

Her stomach tangled into a huge knot. “You really don’t have—”

“I said I would take you home.”

The hint of anger in his voice disturbed her. Great, the last thing she needed to do was piss off her boss. “All right. Thank you,” she added, hoping to appease him.

He peered over her shoulder to Adam. “Anyway, you looked like you needed rescuing.”
She followed his eyes to see Adam hovering over the buffet tables, inspecting the food and trying to strike up a conversation with an older couple next to him. The way his tuxedo hung on his lanky frame reminded Madison of a something she would see at a prom and not a fancy party. “Adam is harmless,” she declared, as she swung her eyes back to him.

The first thing that struck her was how the cut of Hayden’s tuxedo was nothing like Adam’s; he looked dark and tempting in the precisely pressed fabric. Adam’s high school attempt at formal men’s fashion only amplified Hayden’s magnetism.

“Don’t say anything to him. I’ll give him the bad news on Monday. I don’t need him causing a scene or bothering the Martins.”

“Yes, Mr. Parr.”

Hayden inched closer to her, and the smell of his musky cologne overtook her senses. “What did I tell you about that?”

Madison gazed boldly into his eyes. “This is business…Mr. Parr.”

The scowl on his face twisted into an intrigued grin. “I can see you’re going to be very difficult to handle, aren’t you?”

Feeling that tingle of electricity at the nearness of him gave Madison a rush of courage. “I was being assertive and not difficult. If I were being difficult, I would have refused your offer to take me home.”

His grin became a full-on smile. “And which one are you most often, assertive or difficult?”

She returned his smile. “That would depend.”

“On your mood?”

Madison kept him waiting before finally answering, “No, on the man.”

The laughter of a group of men by the patio doors distracted him. “Let me see to the Martins, grab your design, and I will meet you out front. Give me about ten minutes.”

“Ten minutes?” Her eyes took in the half-full dining room. “What about the party?”

“I didn’t come here for the party.” He abruptly headed toward the patio doors. His lean figure cutting across the room reminded Madison of a hero in a Greek play. Strong, smart, and with a dash of hubris in his step, he looked irresistible. As Madison watched his sleek body maneuver through the light scattering of guests, she felt that white heat rise up from her gut, obliterating all other thoughts.

Oh, I’m in trouble.

*My Thoughts*

Note: This review contains NO spoilers

Well, this is the first book by Alexandrea Weis that I have read, and I really enjoyed the story. That Night With You is a sweet romantic story of a young woman trying to put an unforgettable past night behind her and start a new career in a new architecture firm. I loved Madison's character. She's a talented and determined young woman aiming to reach her goal as a successful architect. But, behind all that, she hides her doubts and insecurities thinking that she's not good enough. As for Hayden Parr, his strong confidence and controlled demeanor was all too apparent, but yet, behind all that he's just as scared like everyone else when it comes to expressing his feelings. 

Alexandrea Weis impressively wrote multi-dimensional characters that gave varying layers to their personalities. This story is definitely a contemporary romance in today's society where careers and relationships require careful handling, especially in the workplace. Sometimes, mixing your personal life and professional life together can get messy and confusing. And...finding out how to maneuver both can get overwhelming; that's what Alexandrea Weis successfully told in this story.

Told in the third person point of view, having a narrator tell the story, gave me the feel of watching Madison and Hayden go through their "romance" without "taking sides." I thought it added to the romantic feel of their telling a fairy tale story to a child. However, this is no fairy tale for children. I'd say it's more a fairy tale for adults...haha! The intimacy between Madison and Hayden was definitely sexy and intense, yet it has the romantic element. What's a romance without the "break up" to give that intense need to figure out if it's really love? Well, Alexandrea Weis wrote it well in this story...from the beginning to the end.

That Night with You is a romantic story of lust, love and conquering fears and insecurities. It may even seem close to real life for some people with the struggle of finding love, overcoming doubts, and learning to trust. Although short, I got the full emotion of the story with the well developed characters that this amazing author created.
