¿This was a short, but fun read. I liked the dynamic between D and Joe and I enjoyed watching it change into something permanent. The greedy reader in me would have liked this to be longer but in reality it was perfect as a quick smoking hot romance fix, and at under 100 pages it was a quick fix and an easy read. There is nothing particularly challenging or new in this story its a basic friends/co-workers to lovers story. There nice believable people in a believable situation. I enjoyed it and that's all I can ask of such a short book.

Joe and Drea have one week in Buenos Aires as reward for getting the marketing contract. Unfortunately a mix-up at the hotel means one room and one bed. The two friends figure that they can suck it up for one night. But then they wake up in each other’s arms, seconds away from taking their relationship to the next level. They decide to follow through on that impulse, vowing that they’ll forget the fling when they go home. But then Joe falls hard for Drea. Can he convince her that what happens in Buenos Aires doesn’t have to stay there? I really liked the awkwardness between Joe and Drea when they try to discuss their relationship. It was realistic. I would have been pretty suspicious if either Drea or Joe admitted to having feelings for the other right away. I would’ve wondered why neither of them acted on them before heading to Argentina. I especially liked the situations where one misinterpreted what the other was saying. It not only made things more awkward, but it also made the person responding struggle with a response. The setting in Buenos Aires was both positive and a negative. Setting the story in a foreign country, especially in South America, let Drea and Joe feel comfortable separating their friendship at home from this new romantic relationship. It also gave them the sense that the romance stayed in Argentina. I really liked that aspect of the setting. But I didn’t get the feeling that the author had ever been to Buenos Aires. While visiting a setting before writing about it isn’t necessary, convincing the reader that the author didn’t just flip through a guidebook is important. The setting was too superficial for me. I struggled to get lost in the setting and to believe that I was reading about Buenos Aires. All of the activities that Joe and Drea did seemed like they were either found in a tourist guide book or looked up online. That bothered me. It really took me out of the story. I’d recommend One Night in Buenos Aires to a reader looking for a short romance that doesn’t shy away from the awkwardness of friends becoming lovers.

Good Book! I really enjoyed A Night in Buenos Aires by Amanda K. Byrne. Ms. Byrne's classical writing style is easy to read and this novella is the perfect blend of genuineness, spunk, humor and romance. Drea and Joe have worked together for about five years now and overtime, their professional relationship has evolved into a heartwarming friendship. They spend some of there free time with one another, discuss their personal lives and support each other when needed. As a reward for a job well done, they are given a free, week-long trip to Buenos Aires, to rest, relax and unwind. Due to a reservation screw up, Drea and Joe end up sharing a hotel room. Of course they thought they could platonically sleep in the same bed together, however their sleepy bodies have other ideas. They decide to explore their attraction and have a fling, always reminding each other that what happens in Buenos Aires, remains in Buenos Aires. This is a fun, sexy romance that I was able to go through in very little time. I liked getting to know Drea and Joe, without any major distractions from other characters. The scenery and warmth that Buenos Aires provides, just adds to the heat of the characters. Overall, a solid read with an ending that will put a smile on your face.

With a snarky female and her best-friend being forced to share a hotel room together in foreign climes, One Night in Buenos Aires had potential. But, whilst it flowed well and I polished it off in one sitting, I have to be honest and say it didn’t really wow me and the best word I can use to describe it is nice; nice characters, nice setting, nice intimacy and nice epilogue. It has its sexy moments and I appreciate it's a novella so everything is condensed - in some respects though that should heighten the intensity of the feelings - but it just hovered around nice throughout and Drea and Joe seemed to lose some of their likeability when they took the leap. Drea's initial feistiness seemed to be forgotten with her turning a bit too needy and it didn’t sit right that Joe was prepared to beg. Fight for your woman yes, beg, nuh huh, particularly when you’ve done bugger all wrong! I am the first to admit I can sometimes be difficult to please with novellas, particular standalone ones. But if a nice shortish, steady, easy read, is what you seek then this is that. I just struggled to become invested in the characters on this occasion. But it was wrapped up with a nice epilogue which novella’s can lack. Copy received courtesy of Entangled Publishing via NetGalley for an honest and unbiased opinion
