My One Night (On My Own #1) by Carrie Ann Ryan ~ Book Review


Title: My One Night
Series: On My Own #1
Author: Carrie Ann Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 13, 2021


A one-night stand is supposed to end once the sun rises. Only it doesn’t always work out that way.

I never expected this.
I didn’t want to go to another fraternity party, but when my friend pulls me in, I somehow find myself hiding in a corner with…him.
Dillon Connolly.
The smirking, so-called good guy with the shadows in his eyes.
A single glance, a sweet smile, and I let myself have one night of giving in.

I never expected her.
Elise Hoover haunts my dreams more than I care to admit. I never thought I stood a chance—until she said yes.
When a single night turns to two, I know I’m in over my head, but somehow, she makes me believe I can have anything.
Until the sun rises, and my past along with it.
I know I don’t deserve her, but now I have to fight to keep her…or save her from myself.


I've been waiting a while for Dillon's story and it was definitely worth the wait. Lots of heat and tons of emotions is what we are gifted with Dillon and Elise's story.

If you have read the Fractured Connections Series you've met Dillon because that was his brother's series, the Connolly boys are great so if you haven't read their books I would definitely recommend them, Dillon is now 20 years old in College and starting to figure things out for himself. 

Elise Hoover is from an upper crust family that is overbearing and suffocating at times. Being twenty and in college you wouldn't think her friends have to drag her out to have fun but that is exactly what they do...all schoolwork and no play makes for a dull time in college. 😉

The way Dillon and Elise actually meet in this book is so much fun and it leads into a one night stand....well what was supposed to be a ONS anyway. These two have so much chemistry right from the start, you know you can tell a lot with just one kiss. Neither are looking for a relationship and are not planning on anything more than just the one night, but then that turns into two....and then so much more.

There is a bit of angst and a shocking turn of events that surprised the crap out of me and I swear I couldn't stop crying for like a half hour. Seriously Carrie Ann way to throw a curve ball! 

It's no wonder I'm a huge Carrie Ann Ryan fan when she can write stories that are not only fun to read but when she can knock you sideways without you even seeing it coming that's just genius. I am loving this new group of characters and holy cow after this ending I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in the series, My Rebound, which is due out in June.

I hope you've picked up the free prequel, My First Glance, so you have a bit of Dillon and Elise's backstory but no worries if you haven't read it before this book because it can be read without it, but it's free so go grab it...you'll be happy you did.

I would recommend this book to everyone that enjoys Steamy New Adult Romances, Contemporary Romances, or Opposites Attract Romances. 

Happy Reading!!!
