Title: One Night with Rhodes
Blair Rhodes considers himself an equal opportunity player. He knew from a young age that he wasn’t entirely straight. Ogling his best friend’s older brother was the first thing that tipped him off. But Garrett Erikson is off limits. Always has been. Garrett is as straight as they come.
Garrett’s reputation as a womaniser precedes him, but it’s not who he is. Not even close. And when Blair turns up on his doorstep, heartbroken over a breakup, Garrett knows it’s a bad idea to go drinking with him.
One night is all it takes for everything to change.
For the past ten years, Garrett’s denied his desires to everyone, including himself.
And as much as Blair wants to be the guy Garrett needs, he needs to protect his own heart. Like his ex-boyfriend always told him: “Never mess with the straight ones. It only leads to trouble.”

One Night with Rhodes was such an easy book to fall into and just enjoy. It is the only book that I’ve read from the One Night series and the first Eden Finley book I’ve read. Reader can go into this book and enjoy it without having read the other in the series.
Blair and Garrett have always known each other. Garrett is the older brother of Blair’s friend Hunter who happens to have the second book in the series. They’ve always been in the same circle of friends but never dated due to a bro-code and Garrett is a straight manwhore. All of that changes one night when Garrett kisses Blair. This is where they embark on a five year casual but exclusive hook up thing that doesn’t really work but it puts them on the path that might work, one day, if only that pesky closet wasn’t there for someone to hide in.
The story flowed well for me. Readers are given major events at different points in time of what is going on with Blair and Garrett. Some of the events puts them closer to a happily ever after while other things happen that puts them at odds with each other. Finley delivers this as first person point of view from each man. It’s clearly marked at the beginning of each chapter who we’re getting the details from. It’s also clear from the dialog and character personality as to who we are reading. The alternating points of view never got confusing or jumbled.
My only complaint is that I would have liked a little more page time with Garrett and Blair after they got their relationship figured out. All in all I still thoroughly enjoyed the book. I do not plan on going back to read the other books in the series. Those characters were entertaining as secondary characters here but not interesting enough for me to want to read their book. I am however looking forward to reading the next in the series.
Favorite quote, Blair to Garrett: “I wish we didn’t keep fucking each other up.”
