BOOK REVIEW- ABOUT LAST NIGHT by Ruthie Knox

About Last Night by [Knox, Ruthie]
 Cath Talarico knows a mistake when she makes it, and God knows she's made her share. So many, in fact, that this Chicago girl knows London is her last, best shot at starting over. But bad habits are hard to break, and soon Cath finds herself back where she has vowed never to go . . . in the bed of a man who is all kinds of wrong: too rich, too classy, too uptight for a free-spirited troublemaker like her.

Nev Chamberlain feels trapped and miserable in his family's banking empire. But beneath his pinstripes is an artist and bohemian struggling to break free and lose control. Mary Catherine--even her name turns him on--with her tattoos, her secrets, and her gamine, sex-starved body, unleashes all kinds of fantasies.

When blue blood mixes with bad blood, can a couple that is definitely wrong for each other ever be perfectly right? And with a little luck and a lot of love, can they make last night last a lifetime?
  AMAZON   5 STARS

Loved it! I've got to say it almost didn't happen that way.  Not a fan of InstaSex or a book that has a lot of sex, which they did have.  BUT...I hung in there and continued mainly I think because of Quirky Cath.   Her observations and inner dialogue were hilarious as well as unique.  The pull of the Old Cath,(the Bad One) and the New Cath, (the one trying to be good) were hilarious all on their own.  I fell in "like" with the personality of Cath, I could see her being a best friend.  Or as City/Nev called her 'Mary Catherine" (her real name.)  Nev was such an interesting, considerate man, someone she began to trust.  As she got to know him, she even liked what she called his shark smile.  She knew when that appeared it was time to play.  It was amusing how long she called him City without actually saying his real name.  
In no way was Nev perfect, he was a man with his own challenges.  His family being one of those challenges.  His mother and brother specifically and the fact that his father almost never stood up against them.  His father was more of a gentle, peaceful man.  Of course, he also didn't know some of the things his family was up to either.  
What can I say?  I enjoyed the whole story. It was emotional and interesting all the way through.
