One touch...One kiss…
The first time Noah Bryant meets Colbie Michaels, they collide at the top of a snowy mountain in California and sparks fly. Swamped by sudden emotion—and a desire she can’t control—Colbie panics. Before he can get her phone number or last name, she’s gone. When they end up serendipitously meeting in Seattle one week later, Noah is certain Colbie is his destiny, and he can’t make the mistake of losing her again.
One night...One forever love…
Colbie wants to believe in a happily-ever-after, but experience tells her falling for Noah is more likely to lead to a broken heart. Only, how can she resist him as he sets out to prove that they’re destined to be together? Especially when he’s intent on fulfilling every last one of her secret desires and he’s willing to keep proving it to her every day...and every sweet and sinful night.
You guys, I totally have the romance novella bug right now. I’ve been a little behind on my reading challenge goals, and also in a bit of a reading slump. And reading a novella not only boosts my confidence in getting out of said reading slump, but also helps me succeed in my reading challenge goals. So reading Bella Andre’s One Perfect Night seemed like the perfect way to spend a few hours. And it was totally enjoyable, if not particularly memorable.
One Perfect Night is not about any of the Sullivans, but they do still make an appearance. The two leads in One Perfect Night are Noah and Colbie (who both happen to be friends with some Sullivans). Noah and Colbie meet at a ski resort. They don’t spend a lot of time together, but they do connect strongly.
Both Colbie and Noah were really adorable and I liked them a lot. I thought their first meeting was sooo freaking cute, and I never really get sick of meet-cutes (as long as they are done well, which it is here). I do wish they had spent a little more time together, and that we got to see a bit more and why they connected so well, though. I did, of course, want them to be together, but I wasn’t heavily invested either.
If you’re into romance novellas, I think One Perfect Night would be a great choice for you. And since it is set in a snowy area, it’s even more of a perfect time to look into this one. Although I think there are authors who tackle the novella better than Bella Andre did here, One Perfect Night is still a great way to spend a few hours.
