Occasionally more than one reviewer in the RNIC reviewing pool will read and review the same book. It is always interesting to see what sways one reviewer to give a specific rating. Check out Deborah and Selina’s review of From One Night to Forever by Synithia Williams.
From One Night to Forever is the latest installment in Synithia William’s Henderson family series. In this segment Trucker Aaron Henderson loves his freedom of the open road and when he agrees to a business opportunity in Resilient, Tennessee. Upon his arrival he meets a beautiful woman and they mutually agree to one night of passion. Little does Aaron realize his night of passion is with his potential partner’s sister.
Kacey Randal wanted a quick fling to relieve the steam before entering her last semester of college. Once she realizes Aaron will be working with her brother and learns of his reputation as a ladies man, Kacey agrees with Aaron to “pretend” their night of passion never occurred. When attraction is apparent, it is difficult to hide feelings.
Aaron and Kacey try to fight their attraction but as they are now neighbors, neither can forget that night and want to explore their feelings. Kacey is fearful that Aaron’s reputation and inability to set down roots will not allow her to fully open to him. Aaron is fighting his need for Kacey against his freedom. This relationship is off to a rocky start and both will need to learn to trust and allow love to take over. Readers will need to download From One Night to Forever to find out if love will prevail.
I enjoyed Aaron and Kacey’s story although it was a slow start in the beginning. Kacey’s brother was very protective of his sisters because of his past events. Kacey was the more sensible sister that was determine to not follow in her mother’s footsteps and allowed that to keep her from trusting Aaron. Aaron’s character was fighting his feelings for Kacey because of a past relationship that shaped his overall view. He fought his feelings but when he finally faces his problem it may prove too late. Overall this was a good read.

From One Night to Forever, by Synithia Williams is the fourth installment in Ms. Williams’ Henderson Family series. This installment finally tells the story of Aaron. We have been intrigued by Aaron’s story from the beginning. He was the sibling that dropped out of college after one year to drive a big rig. While Kareem was the brother that seemed to have the most trouble, because he spent time in jail, it was always Aaron that made us wonder.
In this book we find that Aaron is ready to take his trucking company to another level. While he has made a success of his own company, he discovers that by joining forces with the company of an old college buddy he can become even more successful. In the midst of all this he still believes that he is not ready to settle down, like his siblings have. On his first night in town to settle the merger he goes to dinner at the local restaurant by his hotel and engages in what is meant to be a one night stand.
As you can tell by the title of the book things did not work out as planned and his life is turned upside down. The man Aaron plans to partner with, Reggie Holmes, has three sisters, all by different fathers. This situation has made him extremely protective of them, especially his youngest sister Kacey. Kacey happens to be the woman Aaron hooked up with. As this description hints at, this makes for an extremely awkward situation as Kacey and Aaron fight against their attraction, as well has against having her overprotective brother find out about them.
This, like all the other books in this series, was extremely well written. I was hooked to find out the conclusion and see if they got their HEA and how the various situations would resolve themselves. Ms. Williams’s works are fantastic to read and I cannot wait to read more of her work.
