One Too Many  
One Too Many—Book Synopsis Provided by Publisher

Molly sets out on a weeklong adventure on Aphrodite’s Island, a tropical paradise where fantasies come true. She only wants one thing; a chance with Seth Dailey.
Warned that the fantasy she has might not always be her own, she soon realizes that Seth has a few fantasies of his own. He is a man with a healthy sexual appetite and is willing to push the fantasy adventure to the limit. What will Seth do when he realizes too late that Molly was hoping for a lifetime with him?
As sexual fantasies fulfill, then collide, Molly flees in hopes of salvaging her pride and her heart. Will Seth set aside the rest of his fantasy for an opportunity to love Molly? Will he continue to enjoy the fantasy of every man? Or will he enjoy the best of both worlds and hope to pick up the pieces?
 Book Review of One Too Many

Author Arlene Knowell pulls readers into her setting right from the start and introduces them to Molly, a young woman who has paid for a fantasy vacation at the exclusive Aphrodite’s Island. Molly is less than impressed when she discovers her fantasies may overlap with another guest's desires, but she keeps an open mind and begins her journey.
Seth Daily is the man of Molly's dreams but he isn’t exactly the perfect man, like she may have originally thought. When the sexy romp she imagines turns into a disappointment, Molly is forced to reevaluate her feelings for Seth as much as her Aphrodite’s Island experience.

Author Arlene Knowell writes vivid erotic scenes destined to make most booklovers blush. The author does a good job of holding her reader’s attention, particularly when she mentions a ‘favorite position’ enjoyed by her hero.

Knowell has a knack for describing her setting. By the time readers finish One Too Many, they’ll feel as if they’ve been on an exciting adventure. While fantasies vary somewhat for our heroine and hero, Molly and Seth will come together for a satisfying conclusion. Best of all, Knowell leaves her readers with a gratifying experience and many of us will long for our very own Aphrodite’s Island.
