This book was pretty horrible. Clearly it's predictable in the sense that you know that Carrie and Kyle are going to fall in love even though they hate each other. But it seemed like there wasn't much of a thought out storyline. Like she just made up stuff as she went. Now, I'm not a professional writer, but I always thought that you had to have some ideas as to what you wanted to put in the story. Usually her books are like that. This one wasn't. The only resoniable character in the book was Ky ...more

One Night by Debbie Macomber
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I regret opening this one up. I did not finish this. Nope. I couldn't force myself to finish no matter how hard I tried to convince myself it would get better.

I give this 1 star and 4 mehs because I had to give it something.

Did I say I regret opening this?

I really do. I don't know how far I got but I found myself rolling my eyes, skimming the pages for key words, and wondering WTF?

And, let me tell you, I never skim WHOLE pages. Nope not really.
A lovely story of Carrie Jamison and Kyle Harris, who work for radio station KUTE. They can't stand each other and then they are sent to a convention. They decide to drive together, and Carrie insists they take the scenic route. This leads to an encounter with an FBI most wanted felon. Complications after complications ensue, and , in the midst of the chaos, an unlikely romance develops. This is one Debbie Macomber's early books and I'm so glad I found it.

So. Wow. That happened.
This is the first Debbie Macomber book I've disliked. And I didn't so much dislike it as really, really, really wonder WTF? I agree with the reviewer who said it felt like she made stuff up as she went along {As in, I'm not sure that she knew more than that the two would of course marry at the end. All of the 'adventure' part of the book just seemed so bizarre, so un-planned and it kind of jerked from one 'crisis' to another with little thought}.

I'm not sure what the prob
Love is on the air

Morning deejay Carrie Jamison spouts the quirky
brand of comedy Kansas City loves to wake up to.
She's skyrocketing in the ratings, and her quick
wit has won her the admiration of everyone at
KUTE radio -- except Kyle Harris. A serious,
no frills newscaster, Kyle disapproved of Carrie's
antics, and isn't afraid to broadcast his feelings
to her or anyone else. When the tension between
them approaches a meltdown, the station
manager delivers a shocking ultimatum:
Carrie and Kyle must m

Have to admit a little surprise at the intimacy in this book. Not insulted but surprised. Interesting little 'tale' that was a quick read with interesting characters.
I really enjoyed this book. It was pretty much a different storyline and very cute. I liked the twists, even though they were what I expected.

enjoyed the storyline

One Night, if this was a movie it would definitely be classified as a “chick flick.” Carrie and her co-worker, Kyle, are complete opposites, and have a difficult time co-existing at work. To save their jobs they are forced to attend a conference together, that is where everything changes. This book has romance, drama, a bit of comedy, along with some “off-the-wall” events.

I see this being a great book for the younger crowd – twenties & thirties, but was a great beach book for me.
Nice escape from reality. Starts out a little slow and sappy, but the pace soon picks up.
This was a cute love story about two radio personalities who volunteered to take a road trip to a convention together which turned into quite the detour and exciting adventure. Of course, spending time together could only mean that they also started figuring out that they liked each other... The end of the book had an interesting twist I didn't see coming involving the "bad guy" in the story. All in all it was a quick and easy yet enjoyable read.
It was a good read. Enjoyable, light hearted even with the somewhat sinister tone it tried to take up. It's not a must-read, have to recommend but if you pick it up, it'll entertain for the time it takes to read it. I would have liked to see more of a transition between the characters when they move from the hate to the love - it wasn't gradual, just seemed like a switch was flicked and boom, in bed and in love.
Very cliche, predictable book. Co worker D.J.'s travelling enroute to a convention break down on an isolated road and are picked up by a criminal. Of course they end up in a small town with only one hotel room avalable where they have to share a room guessed it. Usually I like Debbie Macomber but this book was way too cliche and all I kept thinking was where were their cell phones?

Carrie and Kyle are two complete oppposites that can't seem to work together at the radio station so they are fired unless within two weeks they can find a way to get along. Their boss suggest that they take this trip together to convention. They find out that hate and love are connected.
You also get to meet Kyle's flower-child mom and a wanted felon along the way.

Debbie Macomber is a fine story teller, this book has humor and a good story. It also has a mystery which propels the story forward. At times I laughed out loud at the antics of the heroine, Carrie Jamison.The hero is uptight and conservative, but non the less he becomes endearing as his mis-adventures with Carrie continue.By the end of the book you find them both very likeable.
Diana Burtnett
Easy read - romance. A cashier at Cracker Barrel noticed I was reading it and raved on and on about how she just loved Debbie's books. I'm sure that there are many people who do love her books - I want to read more of them to see if there are things I can learn from her. The fact that she is able to write as many as she does impresses me. Wonder if she has some ghost writers?
Amanda Duciaume
This was a fun read! I seemed to flip through the pages in no time at all. I found myslef able to see some of what was coming- only to find that I was only half correct. The fact that there were things taking place that I did not expect kept me very interested. I would suggest this book to those that like quick reads about a deep love and terrible trouble; all mixed together.
Have mercy. We have a non member in our bookclub and if any of you know me you know that I read anything with words on a page and apologize later, but I knew when this cute lady suggested Debbie Macomber that che is always a fun light romantic read, but she throws some sex in ans boy she did. No one lisyened to my warnings. Book-club should be interesting.
Thought this was going to be just a romance book - characters hate each other because they remind them too much of traits in their parents that they do not like. Liked how suspense was added by the wanted man character. Although predictable it was a nice story to read except for the precautions not taken on that night - not sure that aspect added enough to story.
Laura Beth
So I thought I was reading one of her Christmas novels which this isn't but it still is cute. Liked the lead characters and what they brought to the table. What I wished she gave us was some of their on air chemistry. What made them so popular over the airwaves? That would have been the prefect touch. Will have to give it 3 1/2 stars.
Lorie Steinfeldt
I really enjoy Debbie Macomber, however this book seemed like the traditional romance books. She usually has more realistic feeling to her characters. There was some humor. I just thought it was slow moving and the to main characters went from hating each other to liking and never had any more friction which didn't seem likely.
Just when I think I have a favorite book by Debbie Macomber, I read another one of hers and it blows me away. What a great story. It was another fast read, a great story and yet another one I wouldn't mind reading again. I highly recommend it, you will not be disappointed. Thanks Debbie....on to your next one.
Patti Mcconnell
It took me awhile to get into this book, but then I couldn't put it down! It starts out with newscasters that can't get along and then becomes somewhat of a typical romance. However, there is also a mystery that goes along with the story and it has a surprise ending. Loved that part!
OK so arn't all romance novels cheezy and predictable? That being said I still love Debbie Macomber and romance novels in general.I would have loved to read the love scenes in this book,in my opinion that would have made a better read and i would have given it 4 stars instead of 3.
One night was quite intriguing. The cliche that there is a thin line between love and hate played out well in this story. Good story line. Love love Kyle's character. A real man who took responsibility as appropriate to protect his love, and relegated his male ego to the background
I loved this book. I prefer books that usually have a happy ending. Life is too full of bad news and awful things going on. There's just nothing like a feel good book. I know it's not for everyone but for those of us who like this kind of book you should read it.
I started this book by just picking it off the table when I walked by. (But isn't that how all good reads happen? ^^ ) After that I couldn't put it down!

Loved the ending! Totaly didn't see the relationship between between Kyle and Max coming!
Kristi Downs
This book was predictable and cliche, but ya know what?
I loved it. Sometimes it's nice to escape into something so lighthearted and fun. A great story, the best characters ever, and a few surprising twists that I didn't see coming.
