***Jenn's Review of A Night to Forget by Jessica Wood and Giveaway***

A Night to Forget is the first book in the two-book series, Emma's Story. The second book in this series, The Day to Remember is scheduled to be released in August 2013.

What happens in Cancun doesn’t always stay in Cancun.

When Emma Anderson and her friends decided to spend their senior year Spring Break in Cancun, she expected some crazy memories to end their final college days. What Emma didn’t expect was to meet Brandon Fisher. Tall and sexy, with dimples that would make any girl swoon, Brandon Fisher was literally the man of Emma’s dreams. She couldn't quite believe that this stranger, who seduced her every night in her dreams, actually existed.

After serendipitously bumping into each other, Emma could not resist Brandon’s pull and spent an unforgettable night with him. Passing it off as a spring break fling, Emma never expected to see Brandon again. But when she started her first day at her new job a few months later, there he was. The only problem was, Brandon didn’t even remember her.

Jenn's Review:
An ARC was provided for an honest review.
Emma has been dreaming of the same man for the past few months. She’s never seen him but knows she wants him. However, she’s been dating Mike for a long time and it hasn’t felt right to give her virginity to him. He’s finally had enough of that and ends things with Emma right before her Spring Break trip to Cancun. What better way to spend a week in Cancun? Single with your best friends!!
Emma’s friend, Jill, has kept them busy everyday and they are finally relaxing on the beach. And while standing on the beach she actually sees the guy she’s been dreaming about! She knows it’s him, she’s seen him nightly for months now! Having to look away from him then turning back, he’s gone. Her friends love the idea that she should find him and sleep with him. It’s meant to be! A couple nights later, after she missed the boat for a booze cruise, she’s well past drunk at the bar and HE comes over to talk to her! He wants to keep her company since he was the consultant for the cruise she missed. Offering more drinks, he asks if she’s like to go watch the sunset at his favorite place on the beach. Once there and talking, she decides the universe did make this happen and she wanted him, badly. Her dream is actually going to come true!
She wakes up the next morning in his bed and it’s almost time for her to leave for the airport! Trying to wake him up doesn’t work, so she leaves a note with her number instead. Except he never calls. She’s devastated and feels used. That is kind of how it goes though. Even though she felt a connection with him, they had just met.
Emma has now moved and is starting her new job. As you know, he ends up working with her and doesn’t even remember who she was! That just seals it that it was nothing but a mistake and if he has no idea who she is, then she’s going to forget too.

I enjoyed this story so much! I read it in one sitting and couldn’t wait to see what happens next. There were times I was laughing, cringing in embarrassment or sighing in contentment. Jessica wrote a fun story and it a joy to read. I think it is a great beginning for her. A Night to Forget ends on a cliffhanger and I’m already anxious to see how it will end. 4/5 stars

About the Author:
Jessica Wood writes new adult contemporary romance and chick-lit.

While she has lived in countless cities throughout the U.S., her heart belongs to San Francisco. To her, there’s something seductively romantic about the Golden Gate Bridge, the steep rolling hills of the city streets, the cable cars, and the Victorian-style architecture.

She loves a strong, masculine man with a witty personality. While she is headstrong and extremely independent, she can’t resist a man who takes control of the relationship, both outside and inside of the bedroom.

She loves to travel internationally, and tries to plan a yearly trip abroad. She also loves to cook and bake, and—to the benefit of her friends—she loves to share. She also enjoys ceramics and being creative with her hands. She has a weakness for good (maybe bad) TV shows; she’s up-to-date on over 25 current shows, and no, that wasn’t a joke.

And it goes without saying, she loves books—they’re like old and dear friends who have always been there to make her laugh and make her cry.

The one thing she wished she had more of is time.

  1. I went to the Rivera Maya in Mexico for my honeymoon. It was so beautiful there. :-)

  2. I would love to go back to Maui sometime. But really anywhere where there is a nice sandy beach to walk with not a lot of people is my favorite place to be. =D

  3. Favorite vacation spot is Walt Disney World

  4. I would love to go back to Kauai! It's gorgeous and not too warm.

  5. I'm torn between Disney World and Washington, DC :-)

  6. I went to St. Lucia for my honeymoon. It was so peaceful there. However, nothing compares to the blue water in Cancun!

  7. I really, really, REALLY loved Ireland! Oh, and Normandy, France!! SO great. (:

    Thanks for the chance! (:

  8. Cancun by far has been my favorite, probably because I was 17 and was doing things I shouldn't. (;

  9. Anywhere with a great beach.
