Bella Andre never fails to brighten up my day! Although it was too short, I enjoyed the whole story. This was a sweet, heartwarming, and sexy romance novella. If you're looking for a fun, fast read that was packed full of delight and vehemence, this book is worth a try. ...more
Love at First Sight… A short, sweet, and steamy love story...

This short story had been riding the iBooks number one spot for several days by the time I decided to give it a whirl. The Author seems to be popular. Though I haven't read any other books in The Sullivans Series, would that have enhanced my enjoyment? I do not know...

The storyline was cute (complete with HEA) but it was mostly forgettable. Love at first sight and all that jazz…
Overall it was a nice way to spend an hour or two.

"You gave me one perfect day in Lake Tahoe. Now I want one night." He moved closer again and took one of her trembling hands in his. "One night with you." He entwined his fingers with hers and she stopped shaking as he held her tight. "One night to love you the way you’ve always wanted to be loved." He dipped his head down so that he could whisper in her ear. "One perfect night to make all of your secret desires and dreams come true."

This was a very short read, it was cute and

Am I the only one that is really bothered with the fact that they were practically saying 'i love you' in 2 days?
I think the story had great potential, but was ruined for being so short.
Don't get me wrong, my problem was not with the whole 'love a first sight' thing. I just don't think the characters were well developed. Their first day together, the day they should have had this great connection, was barely described. I needed so much more details to understand why they felt that way...

Short and sweet read

Colbie Michaels found her trusted boyfriend in bed with his co-worker just a little over a month ago. That wasn’t the first time that Colbie should have noticed her ex was not to be trusted. She is determined not to trust or fall in love with another man. That is until she meets the handsome Noah. Noah is determined to get Colbie to trust him and give their relationship a chance. After spending the day together they lose touch. When they meet again Noah gets Colbie to agree

Way too short of a story but I really enjoyed it.
Loved the Sullivan series and hopefully this book means the beginning of more books to come about the extended Sullivan family. :)

First impression:
Well, it was part of The Sullivan's Series, so it was an auto-buy for me. Plus, the cover looks promising.

The story:
Colbie, Mia Sullivan and their girlfriends are off to Lake Tahoe for a weekend getaway. Usually they head to the beach, but this time the snow won. Colbie doesn't really know how to ski, but it all works out because sexy Noah more than willing to show her the ropes. Their connection is undeniable and sparks are flying. The problem is that Colbie is mending

I, like most romance readers, am a sucker for Bella Andre’s Sullivan series and if you haven’t read it what are you waiting for? So, when I saw a notice on Facebook that this book had released and it “co-starred” two of the Seattle Sullivan’s I was all over it. While I’m sad the California atruegemawardSullivan series is coming to an end, I can’t help but be excited about finding out more about their Seattle cousins because the resid

This was a last minute impulse read in order to fill a group reading challenge. I got this for free, thank goodness. The writing was okay but the story was lackluster and didn't really do anything for me. I'm not a fan of "instalove" or "love at first sight" thing. I understand in this case since it's more of a short story than a book, but still, not a fan of instant eye romance, or in this case "intalust". Just a meh read. would recommend borrowing it if interested in reading it. ...more

Too short
I don't believe in love at first sight. I do believe they had lust at first sight though.

"One Perfect Night" by Bella Andre was another good read from the author in 'The Sullivan's' series which introduced Noah and Colbie who were friends of the Sullivan's ...Mia and Rafe. Whoever knew that once Noah and Colbie met on the ski slope that it would turn in to a happy ever after. However, both of these two did not exchange contact information

I had no idea this was a part of a series or a standalone or anything else when I read this book but, it was a breath of fresh air and I was in love with the characters and the story from beginning to end.
I am so going to read the series now. I am not usually one who believes in love at first sight but the author captivated me and kept me intrigued and now I want more of Colbie and Noah and the rest of the Sullivan's. Amazing short and quick read!

I'd never read a Bella Andre book, but after Kristan Higgins recommended her, I decided to try this novella on Colbie and Noah. Have to say this short read was exquisite, from the storyline to the editing. Gotta appreciate love -- and trust -- at first sight! The evocative descriptions, the emotions engendered became precious to me, and I inhaled the tale. Wow. All taking place in my two favorite places to be: my old haunt of Heavenly Valley in Tahoe and my former, fondly missed homeland of Seat ...more

Now, I normally have a big old moan about people moaning about how short a short story was, but in this case I have to agree. It really was way too damn short and could have done with being double the length.

If it wasn't part of the uber brilliant Sullivan series, it would have been completely forgettable.

I guess I don't understand the appeal of this genre. Trying to understand, but perplexed by this bubblegum almost-story (there is no third act) written as if by a 12 year old girl who daydreams about love at first sight and has seen an R rated love scene, but just can't bring herself to type "penis." ...more

When will novellas stop trying to be novels?

I picked this up as a freebie because I had enjoyed some of Andre's other work. None of it set my world alight, but it was mostly solid. This premise seemed bite-sized enough to work as a novella without the number-one complaint I have about romance novellas: "this should have been a full-length novel, it's trying to do too much."

I got burned here with that. The lovebirds spend one day skiing together, one week apart and thinking about the other, then

Colbie was having a weekend with her best friends. They chose a skiing trip. It's not her idea of a great trip because she does't ski and is afraid of heights. But things happen on the trip that make her realize it was the perfect weekend.

Loved the book and Noah too. Maybe I should try skiing.

2.5 stars at best. There were several things I didn't like about this, starting with the fact that it was so short. There wasn't enough time to develop the characters so that I could get on board with their relationship. I'm all for love at first sight stories, provided they're realistic. But this was more like two people who are physically attracted to each other and then spend the day skiing only to both be so gaga that they can't function well for the week they are apart. Ok. Fine. Except, um ...more

Bella Andre gifts readers with a little something extra. In this short novella, we meet Colbie (cute name!) and Noah, friends of the Seattle Sullivans family. When Colbie and Mia Sullivan go to Lake Tahoe for a fun girls only weekend, Colbie learns that she isn’t as graceful on the slopes as she had hoped to be. She lets her friend Mia go off on her own so that she can enjoy the time there while Colbie tries to make her way back without falling down in her skis.

She fails. And falls flat on h
