Release Date: October 10, 2017

Standalone Romantic Comedy

ISBN 978-09982444-33


Have you ever set out to have a one night stand with a sexy stranger?

No? I’m the only one?

Just kidding, I would never. 


Not usually.  

But then I figured, why not? My entire life I’ve been good and it’s gotten me nowhere.

No job. 

No apartment. 

No boyfriend.  

I’m owed a little fun, aren’t I? A reward for being good.

Sure, a new pair of shoes would be more appropriate, but Mr. Sexy Stranger is more appealing. And when he speaksin that British accentit’s a done deal. Every American woman has a hot British guy fantasy. Well, most do. I haven’t taken a poll or anything, but I’m pretty sure it’s a fact.  


You know that saying about best-laid plans? 

Good, because I don’t either, but I assume they go awry.

Like my one night stand…

My Review

Sure Thing is exactly why I love Jana Aston’s writing—her type of humor speaks to me. The wit and humor she brings to her stories seem effortless. I know going into one her books, I’ll have a smile plastered on my face and laughing the entire time.

“Oh. My. God. Accent confirmed. I have just hit the holy grail of potential one-night stands.”

Violet was cute, sassy, and a little awkward. I’m totally an awkward person, so I instantly clicked with her! She’s at a rough point in life when she meets…I mean “picks up” Jennings in a hotel bar. He’s handsome, charming, a little mysterious, and when she learns he’s British, she’s a total goner. Their insta-lust relationship was fun, spontaneous, and full of steam. I couldn’t get enough of them!

“She’s an enigma, this girl. So full of passion but so innocently naïve about getting it.”

If you’re looking for a book to escape reality for a bit, then grab this one by Jana. It’s fun, charming—a hilarious feel-good read that I couldn’t put down. A SURE THING!

“Do you have a job, Jennings?” She squares her shoulders and looks at me as if she’ll be able to assess the truthfulness of my answer.

“I do.” I nod.

“Do you live with your mother?”

“I do not.” I shake my head once and bite back a smile.

“Okay,” she says, then pauses. “Do you live with your grandmother?” she asks slowly, her brow arched in suspicion as if I’ve found a loophole to avoid an honest answer.

“Also no,” I confirm.

“Okay,” she finally says with a nod.

“Okay,” I agree though I’m not sure what conclusion she’s just drawn.

“We can have sex this week,” she announces. “Because you’re good at it,” she adds and starts walking again. “And because that accent of yours drives me wild and because frankly, I don’t need another reason.”

“Well then, glad that’s settled.” I don’t fight the smile this time. I can’t recall a woman ever telling me I was good in bed in quite such an… ineloquent way before, but it’s distinctly Daisy.

“Don’t make me regret this, Jennings. You seem like trouble and I’ve got a lot going on.”

“I’ll make you come with as little trouble as possible,” I promise.

“And for the record, I’m still going to count this as a one-night stand. Unless I have another one-night stand in the future, then I’ll use that one, but if I don’t then this one still counts.”

“Right.” I nod slowly even though fuck knows what that means.

“Okay then. We’ve got a deal.”

“A sex deal?” I ask, wide smile on my face. “How kinky.”

“You said you weren’t going to be trouble,” she says drily with a tilt of her head and a lift of her brow in challenge.

“Fair enough, that I did.”

“Go join the group, Jennings. I’ll deal with you later.”

Oh, I should hope so. I shake my head with another grin, wondering what just happened. I don’t normally have women so reluctant to give me attention. Or speaking to me like I’m a lost dog. Yet I’m smiling and curious about what she’s going to throw at me next.
