Olympic 1Night Stand!

Available HERE
By Stephanie Beck

The only time you’ll see Stephanie Beck sit down and watch a hockey game is during the winter Olympics. Only time. I don’t like hockey, cross country skiing, snowboarding...yeah, I just don’t find them interesting. However, I love the Olympics, and for a magical 16 days every four years, I rearrange my schedule so I can watch as many events as possible.

More than just the events though, I love the Olympians’ back stories. The struggles and triumphs are amazing and humbling. They make me happy. A while back I read something about the Olympic village being hook up central—which totally makes sense to me. After all that pressure, of course there is going to be some, um, exploding.

My husband rolls his eyes when it comes to the relationships. He doesn’t see the reason for the relationship statuses and who is hooking up with whom is shared. I see the reason and while I don’t think it is the most important thing, I like knowing that at least some of the athletes found someone with similar goals and schedules and loves to be with. Those qualities turn what could be a classic one night stand into something much more. And who doesn’t get all doe eyed when two people who work so very hard achieve (or fall short) of success and jump into each others’ arms? (Well, my husband is one who doesn’t, but I get big-eyed enough for both of us).

Do you have a favorite Olympic event or story? Share it for a chance to win Panties Optional, my contribution to the amazing 1NS series.

Maggie Chase has a wild night of passion planned with the help of Madame Evangeline’s dating service, 1NightStand. A single night with an incredible man, what more can a busy girl ask for?

Sam Peterson requests that Madame Evangeline help him find a woman who isn’t after him for his money. Maggie may just fit the bill, but with her list of fantasies in hand, she may be more than he bargained for.
Forever isn’t on either one of their minds, but maybe it doesn’t have to be.

All the best,

  1. Like you, Stephanie, I love the Olympics and it is probably the only time I watch any of those sports. I don't dislike the sports, but I just don't watch much TV. My first favorite Olympic hook-up story was the movie 'International Velvet' from when I was a kid and then 'Chariots of Fire' the movie. But from this Olympics, I enjoyed a couple of those come-back stories like the older Russian bobsledder who left the sport b/c of the sports politics and then came back to win gold.

    Your book sounds good. Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

    1. Thanks for stopping in, Sophia Rose. I am so with you on the older Russians. The bobsledder's story is fantastic and there were others too from Russia that was just striking.

  2. I'm not a huge fan of the Olympics, but I love the idea behind it of bringing nations together that don't always like one another and want to be in the same room. I'll watch the summer games for the horse events but that's the extent of it. I had no idea of the hook up thing though! But it makes sense, after the pressures of the sport. It's an outlet.

    This is a great story y'all (er, y'uns for us Missourians)!

    1. Nice on the y'all and y'uns, Olivia! Silly chick.

  3. I enjoy gymnastics and swimming, but not obsessively. Thanks for the post.

    1. Summer Olympics catch my attention too. It's so special to watch people do something they love so very well. Thanks for stopping by!
