One Night with a Santini (The Santinis #8) by Melissa Schroeder

He was searching for something that was missing from his life.

Brando Santini is headed to New Orleans to blow off some steam with a few of his buddies. The respite from his life as a Marine doesn’t really seem to do the trick until he runs into his college crush, Kaitlin Fitzpatrick. After a little dancing and a few drinks, they end up in bed together and Brando knows she’s the one for him.

One night will never be enough.

Kaitlin never forgot Brando. She never would have thought the sexy nerd would have remembered her. More than that, she definitely didn’t expect he would be interested in seducing her. Their time in New Orleans is intense but much too short. The memories of his lovemaking leave her counting the days until she sees him again.

A complication neither of them expected.

By the time Brando arrives in Maryland, Kaitlin suspects that their one night together has left them with more than memories. When Brando insists on marriage, she refuses on the grounds he doesn’t love her. But what Kaitlin doesn’t understand is that when a Santini wants to prove his love, nothing will stand in his way—not her five brothers, his own annoying family, or even the woman he adores.

My review:
Twists, turns and lots of fun.  Ms. Schroeder manages to give each Santini a unique and yet familiar story.  Brando & Kaitlin are no different. 
Brando Santini is like the other Santini men in that when he meets “the one” he knows it and can never go back.  Unfortunately his one and only is engaged and he doesn’t poach.  So he leaves his love in college untouched and unapproached other than as a friend and joins the Marines. 
Now several years later he literally bumps into her in New Orleans and she isn’t wearing a ring.  Life has handed him a second chance and he is going to make the most of it.  All he has to do is convince Kaitlin of the Santini curse and to give him a chance.
