Krista’s had some rotten luck with men in the past and things don’t seem to be looking up by the string of terrible first dates she’s just been on. She’s over it and ready to be single for awhile . . . that is until her crazy hot landlord shows up just when she needs a big and strong man more than ever.
Damien doesn’t date his tenants. But when Krista offers him a drink after he saves her from a would-be mugging, he can’t seem to say no. He also can’t control the off the charts chemistry they seem to have. Rules are made to be broken, right?
After one hot and steam night, both Damien and Krista know they want more. But real relationships never come from one night stands. So, they make a deal . . go on ten dates to really get to know one another before having sex again. It won’t be easy, but it will definitely be worth it.
Both Krista and Damien have pasts and secrets however that seem to keep popping up between them. Damien has a personal reason to truly hate violence against women, and Krista has a crazy ex that seems to be stalking her. If they want to make it past their ten dates, they are going to need to work through their baggage and come clean with one another so they can have the chance at real happiness.
What seems like a book that should really be all fluff ended up having some real grit. Ten Night Stand deals with some heavy topics that added depth to the storyline. Both Krista and Damien are likable characters but both have secrets they are hiding for fear it will chase the other away . . . much like a real life relationship. Their secrets, however, can be deadly.
Mickey Miller did a great job of maintaining a very high heat level throughout this book while interweaving it with suspense. 4 stars.

From bestselling author Mickey Miller, a brand new, hot-as-hell standalone contemporary romance:
I don’t need a man.
I’ve figured that out pretty quickly after a string of bad dates. Every one, a disappointment. Either they want to use me, or I don’t want to use them. Either way, I’m over it.
But then my landlord shows up exactly when I need a man.
And a drink.
And maybe a second.
So we make a deal. No sex for ten dates, which sounds easy. Despite the biceps bulging through his shirt. Despite the tattoos I desperately want to lick– I mean, know more about. Despite the hunger in his eyes when he looks at me.
No, it won’t be easy.
It’ll be really. Really. Hard.
