Colbie believes that men can't be trusted and has the proof to back it up. But she's not going to let her ex ruin her girls weekend on the slopes, even if she's a clutz on skiis. When Noah rescues a woman from herself in the snow, he knows that she's the one. He's determined to give her the perfect day to prove it to her.
This VERY SHORT story is an off-shoot of the Sullivan series. You don't need to read it to follow this book, but the series is fantastic so check it out anyway. Colbie and Noah are best friends with two of the main Sullivan-series cousins. You'll like the characters. The plot is very cute and it does have some steamy scenes. However, it lacks real conflict, so there isn't a defined plot-related climax before you reach the happily ever after. If you like Bella Andre you'll like this book. If you're new to her stories, start with another one and come back to this in a few weeks.

Bella Andre wrote a great novella. I thoroughly enjoyed Noah and Colbie's story of love at first sight. Highly recommend to Bella Andre
fans or if you're wanting a quick introduction to her writing style.

Well, it was part of The Sullivan's Series, so it was an auto-buy for me. Plus, the cover looks promising.
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 a wounded heart and doesn't feel quite ready to jump in the sack with Noah.
They go their separate ways after their fun filled day together, but neither one of them can stop thinking about the other. Now, their both home and chatting to their friends about "the one that got away". Coincidentally, Noah's friend happens to be Rafe Sullivan. Noah asks Rafe to find his mysterious Colbie. And across town, Mia and Colbie are thinking Rafe will be the perfect person to help her find Noah. So, Rafe and Mia put the pieces together and...the rest they say, is history!
I really liked Colbie and Noah together at the ski resort. They were flirty and having a great time together. Noah was really sweet with Colbie. I was a bit disappointed that she didn't head off with him that day, but I did understand her reasons. She was bit gun shy after being hurt by her ex. And really, it all worked out in the end.
Once they meet back up there was no holding back! Noah took control of the situation and he wasn't ever going to let Colbie out of his sights again. I appreciated that. It was sexy. And the big steamy scene was very satisfying. Bella Andre can definitely bring the heat to a sex scene without being overly descriptive. It worked for me!
What didn't work for me:
It's funny because the thing I liked the most about Noah, the fact that he took charge of the situation, is what didn't work for me. That said, this is a novella so things did need to move rather quickly, but I felt like Noah and Colbie were immediately in love and it was set in stone that they would be together forever. I'm a romantic, so I'll buy it, but it was definitely a case of insta-love.
I did enjoy this novella. Noah and Colbie were a great couple and I suspect I'll see them again when I finally get around to reading Rafe's book. Which is sitting pretty on my Kindle right now. If you're a fan of The Sullivan's Series, I'd say go ahead and pick this one up. These two are a part of the Sullivan's lives, so it gives a little insight to their lives outside the family a bit. I liked it.

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."-Loc 522

Plot (4 Paws)- 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 to give him one night to prove himself to her. Noah is determined to give her One Perfect Night.
Pace (3 Paws)- This is a very fast paced story. It’s an extremely short read with the book ending at 71% and the rest of the Kindle book contains previews for other books. This meant a lot of story packed into a very short book. Unfortunately this hindered character development and relationship building. The relationship between Noah and Colbie was very much love at first sight. I am not usually a fan of instant love, but in this case, there really isn’t time for relationship build up. The positive about this is that for those of you who don’t like angst there isn’t time for any. By the second meeting they were professing love for one another. That being said, this author did a great job of utilizing the space she had. The story was never boring and I was very invested in finding out if Colbie and Noah got their HEA.
Writing (4 paws) -The writing is quite good and very easy to follow. Belle Andre’s writing is one of the better styles I’ve seen for a short story. My only complaint is that I wish the book had been longer. What she did with such a short amount of space proves that a full length novel from her would have been fantastic.
Cover (3 Paws)- The cover was very generic. Most of the romance novels I read have the same concept. It’s sexy and you know from looking at it there is going to be romance in it but there is nothing special that sets it apart from most of the other romance novels on my Kindle. I would have liked it more if it would have at least shown the couple’s faces. Unfortunately you get to see their body from the waistline to their neck. The guy is shirtless which is usually ideal but since he’s facing at a side angle you can’t really see him. Of course if there is a half -naked guy on my book cover I would like to at least be able to see him.
Characters (3 Paws)- Since this is such a short read there are very few characters in the story. Noah and Colbie are both likable from what details are given. The characters are very one dimensional and there are only a couple of other characters in the story. The author stayed almost completely focused on the main couple; of course, given the space she had to tell their story, it was necessary. It would have been nice to have more background information on both of Colbie and Noah.

Title: One Perfect Night
Author: Bella Andre
Publisher: All Romance Books
Reviewed By: Arlena Dean
Series: The Sullivans
"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 but a friend comes to the rescue for both of these two and from there we are given a sweet romance by this author. I will not tell you any more other than to say you must pick up "One Perfect Night" for truly a sweet romantic read will give you a "insight into a Seattle Sullivan's read series that will restore your faith in love at first sight." This was definitely a case of a 'perfect man meeting a perfect woman and the rest is as you would say... is history.' If you are looking for a short and sweet well written romance you have come to the right place for "One Perfect Night" will give it all to you. Would I recommend? YES!

ONE PERFECT NIGHT has all the characteristics of a Bella Andre story – charm, sweetness and a heap full of hotness! ~ Under the Covers
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 her face.
But Noah is there to lend her a helping hand. Their attraction is instant and as the sexy sky instructor, they soon become comfortable with one another. As the weekend comes to an end, they go their separate ways, but thoughts keep circulating in both their minds of one another.
Noah turns out to be friends with Rafe Sullivan and as a private investigator, asks Rafe to find Colbie. Similarly, Mia tells Colbie to use her brother’s talents to find Noah. It’s cute when they find each other and have a scorching hot night together. I only wished it was longer because when I flipped to the last page, I was really disappointed that that was the end of the story. I would have loved to read more about Colbie and Noah. I would have loved to learn more about Colbie’s indulgence business as well.
In Andre’s next book, THE WAY YOU LOOK TONIGHT, Rafe gets his HEA. There some mention of Colbie and Noah in it, so definitely check it out if you wish for more of this couple! I know I do!
