A Night to Forget is the first book in the two-book series, Emma's Story. The second book in this series, The Day to Remember is scheduled to be released in August 2013.

What happens in Cancun doesn’t always stay in Cancun.

When Emma Anderson and her friends decided to spend their senior year Spring Break in Cancun, she expected some crazy memories to end their final college days. What Emma didn’t expect was to meet Brandon Fisher. Tall and sexy, with dimples that would make any girl swoon, Brandon Fisher was literally the man of Emma’s dreams. She couldn't quite believe that this stranger, who seduced her every night in her dreams, actually existed.

After serendipitously bumping into each other, Emma could not resist Brandon’s pull and spent an unforgettable night with him. Passing it off as a spring break fling, Emma never expected to see Brandon again. But when she started her first day at her new job a few months later, there he was. The only problem was, Brandon didn’t even remember her.

Closer to 1.5

A night To Forget by Jessica Wood is story about 22 year old Emma who lost her virginity in Cancun with a man she’s head over heels in love with. But that one night haven’t bloomed into something more than one night of passion. Now, few months after her spring fling she’s starting her new job and bumps into her ex-lover.

I hate writing not nice enough reviews, because I actually don’t like to waste my time on typing my opinion about something I want to erase from my mind. Unfortunately Jessica Wood’s story has to be put in this category. Being entirely honest I have to confess that A Night To Forget is weird and boring. Plot is constructed on Emma who are saving herself for a man of her dreams and when she ‘magically’ meets him on her spring break, she decide to give him her V-card. Please, what the heck is that?

I couldn’t connect with Emma, who acted like a 14 year old girl instead of full-grown woman. She acts like life and love’s supposed to be rainbows and unicorns. It was pathetic to see how she acted around Brandon or how she was not ready for sex with her steady boyfriend but spent the night with a complete stranger. That’s just… plain stupid, naïve, selfish, unwise, thoughtless.
And to be even more daft Brandon is Emma’s new boss and totally don’t remember deflowering her. He doesn’t know who she is. WTF is that? It’s delusional.

The writing also is an issue. I was actually shocked someone older than 14 wrote it and that it was edited and published.
Overall, The Night To Forget is a total cliché. If it was longer, I wouldn’t have finished it.
