Sweet hot novella read about an anal-retentive h and her geeky best friend H and how they get their HEA. For a short read, the characters are done very well. I liked how much the H was into the h and how well he knew her.

Safe with exception: (view spoiler)

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to get together with your best friend? Kate hasn't....but her best friend Aaron has. After a disasterous date night for Kate, the line is unexpectantly crossed between Kate and Aaron. Can they ever go back to being just friends? Or can they move forward and become more? Everything can change in one night.

A sweet little novella. I've come to realize that I enjoy reading author Noelle Adams on particularily stressful days. Her books might not be 5 star

A short story about two best friends who cross the friend zone line and discover that they were meant to be together.

Likable, three dimensional characters and a realistic plot.

Short and to the point, this is a fun story that hits the spot if you need a quick romance fix.

The series continues with One Night in the Ice Storm next.

3.5 Shorty-Shortster Stars :)

I love Noelle Adams "One Night" novellas. You can finish one in an hour or less. They're the fast food of romance stories: short and hot!

Sure there could be more, but these books give you exactly what they advertise. Pick one up!

At the time of this review there are 4 featuring a Body Guard, a Best Friend, a Boss and an Ice Storm. I love trapped together stories. :)

I'll admit I absolutely adore stories where best friend fall in love - usually with one pining away for the other, and the other realising what was before them. This did not disappoint in that department.

Sadly it was SUPER short, and sheesh one night is right, everything happened so fast, I couldnt even process any of it. haha
Easy, quick read romantic read. I give it 2/5

Best Friends to Lovers

I was absolutely thrilled to receive book
one, One Night novella. Written by the amazing, Noelle Adams. Another most exciting romantic tales from this incredible winning author. I now was completely blessed to start yet another most beautiful series.

Kate Carlson worked continuously
typing through her work only hoping to finish it in time. She forced onward into the night as she knew it would have to be completed by that night.

Listening to her best friend Aaron who walked

28/11 - I read Noelle Adams' novella trilogy (or at least that's what I'm calling them) One Night in the Ice Storm, One Night with her Best Friend and One Night with her Bodyguard over the space of about four hours and as they were only about 60 or 70 pages long I'm going to write one review for all of them. They were all very similar in general plot and characterisation. The heroine either doesn't like the hero or doesn't see him in a romantic way. The hero has loved the heroine for years, but ...more

"I know its wrong because its not what you want, but I can't seem to talk myself out of it. Every time I look at you, I want you. Not as a friend, I want you in my arms. I want you in my bed. I want you all the time." -Aaron

Hey this one is quite pretty good. Eventhough i dont know the author and was intrigued by the title i decided to give this one a try, its good though the story was predictable and short, i wish there was more of the story. It's a typical story about bestfriends falling for each other, each one falling one way or another but eventually realizing that they're better be with one another. And here i thought they would never say the words i love you hihi it would definitely be a cliff hanger if they ...more

This book takes place all within one night and I don't know if I love it or hate it. I mean, my love for Noelle Adams is still rising and I'm still continuing my pursuit to read all her books. Just this story was odd for me.

Friend romance

I thought the story line was good and the writing was okay but could have been a little bit more detailed.

Formulaic NA/erotic novella. It's not terrible, but it's not good either.

Cute story, as short as it is, I actually cared whether Kate and Aaron ended up together. It was nothing I haven't read before, but not a bad way to spend an hour.

So this one had me a little pissed off at the guy because I mean why can't some guys just step up, why must the girls make the first move especially when he's the one with the feelings, and girls obviously always doubt themselves and signs they see. So man up dude! Once it finally happened, I was like YES!! Finally, even thought it's a short book it felt like it took a while to get the good and HOT parts.

I'm giving it a three, not because it was bad but because it's a short book and for that reason I didn't get emotionally invested with the characters.

But I will say this, I just figured out that novellas are like a reset button. If you ever go through an emotional wringer, just read one of these HEA short books and you'll be reset for the next big thing.

A very enjoyable novella. While it does remain quite quite short; I found the characters to be quite relatable. The love was very heartwarming to listen to. I look forward to exploring more of Noelle's writings.
Rebecca Wheeler
This was cute, and I really enjoyed it. Since finding out one of my favourite authors Clare Kent is actually a pen name for Noelle Adams, and Samantha Chase, I intend to go through both their back-lists.

From best friends to lovers have always been my favorite plot and this is no exception. For a novella it was a good read. I felt the jealousy, love, chemistry between Aaron and Kate. One should definitely read it.

It was cute, but I've seen the same plot at least a hundred times before.

Noelle handwrote her first romance novel in a spiral-bound notebook when she was twelve, and she hasn't stopped writing since. She has lived in eight different states and currently resides in Virginia, where she teaches English, reads any book she can get her hands on, and offers tribute to a very spoiled cocker spaniel.

She loves travel, art, history, and ice cream. After spending far too many
