Review: One Night with her Best Friend by Noelle Adams

It just took fourteen years...and one hot night.

After growing up with an unstable father, Kate has always prided herself on her organized and well-planned life. She's secure now with a good job and an impressive boyfriend. And with Aaron, her best friend since high school.

Aaron might be smart, funny, and sexy, but he has never been anything more than a friend. Kate will never risk her stable world and her closest relationship by turning the friendship into romance. It doesn't matter how irresistible she's starting to find him, she still intends to resist.

But then everything changes in only one night...

Published: (first published November 3rd 2012)

Genre: Romance

Kristine's Thoughts:

Every now and then I find myself without a lot of time on my hands but I still want to do some reading. This is when I turn to novellas. I don't have to make a huge time commitment but I can still get my reading fix. Finding myself really busy this week I decided to try the first novella in the One Night Novellas series. My thinking was that there are a bunch more that I can pick up if I liked it.

Anyone who reads my reviews knows that I don't like to say too much about novellas or short stories because there is only so much book and I don't want to give things away. With that in mind, I will be keeping my thoughts brief.

This is your typical friends to lovers story. Although it has been done a million times it was still enjoyable and entertaining. Sometimes there is something to be said for these shorter stories in that the attraction and denying of said attraction doesn't go on for hundreds of pages. I adored Aaron from the beginning. Kate got on my nerves a little but in the end I still liked her. Honestly though...how she never noticed Aaron as a "man" before is beyond me!

This novella did exactly what I was wanting it to. It satisfied my reading fix without taking up too much time and left me entertained at the same time. I will be keeping the rest of these novellas in mind when I find myself short on time.

  1. It's been awhile since I've read a romance novel. I'm interested in giving this one a try. I agree with your assessment that sometimes, romance novels share a similar plot but when done right, it can still be entertaining and fun to read. Great review.
