Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Single moms are allowed to have one-night stands. Even drunken ones that you can't quite remember, as long as it's not your night with the kiddo... right?

Carissa Ann Lynch brings about an enticing fresh take on one night stands, especially the ones you can't remember! Right from the get-go, you're thrown into Ivy's thoughts waking up from an unmemorable one night stand only to find out there's a stranger's dead body in her bed! Aside from wondering who, what and why Ivy knows she must keep the dead guy under the sheets on the down-low to protect her teenage daughter.

The One Night Stand was enthralling from start to near finish! I reveled in the mystery as I tried to form my own opinions on whether or not I thought Ivy could've actually murdered her bedmate! Aiding in that suspense was the dual timeline narratives giving the reader a glimpse of the past and present in multiple staggering styles. I found Ivy's character quite realistic in many ways, from the way she always tried to put her child first to the way she handled her friends and lack of intimate connections - after all, we're only human, and we all have needs.

The ending was the only real downside for me. Exciting, yes. BUT it just felt a bit too easy of an out; I was expecting a little more, something different, out of it, but overall, I quite enjoyed the buildup and the connecting storylines. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick thrill of a read!

Thank you to NetGalley, the publishers from HarperCollins UK, One More Chapter Books, and the author Carissa Ann Lynch for providing me with a complimentary copy of this title in exchange for an honest review.

Book Blurb:
A night she won’t forget…
  
When single mum Ivy wakes up to a complete stranger lying next to her, she knows her one-night stand hook-ups have to stop. The encounters mean nothing to Ivy, but for just a short time, they make her forget her own terrible life. 

A murder she can’t remember.

But then Ivy discovers the stranger in her bed has been stabbed to death, and she is covered in his blood…except Ivy has no recollection of bringing this man home. Could she have killed him?

As she tries to piece together what happened last night, Ivy’s own past returns to haunt her. And secrets can’t stay hidden forever…
