This was a fun, quick read that had some great characters and an interesting backstory. I really enjoyed the read but did feel the story was s bit rushed when it came to the ending, which sometimes happens to me when I read these novella length stories. I did enjoy the writing style and flow of the story, I just felt the story needed just a little more. I really liked both Eliza and Chris and loved them together. With both the second chance romance and brother’s best friend tropes in play – two of my favorites – I really enjoyed watching Eliza and Chris struggle through their own relationship issues while dealing with the sparks that would fly every time the two of them got near each other. Throw in what seems to be a bit of matchmaking by Eliza’s older brother, and these two certainly set off their own fireworks on New Year’s Eve. I would definitely recommend this one to anyone looking for quick, fun read – as I said, my biggest issue was what that the end felt a bit rushed to me, trying to wrap things up too quickly, and I really felt that Eliza and Chris still had a bit more story to tell. I will definitely be on the lookout for other books C.M. Stone. I received this book from the author for an honest review.

For me this was a quick fun read. I loved Chris and Emily together. That whole forbidden loved each other secretly when younger now want more never gets old. The author did great showing their feelings and vulnerabilities for each other. I only wish it was a little longer and took more time to see the conversations behind the scenes, like between Chris and Emily's brother. I hope the author does a story for her brother as well.

A quick holiday read of what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Eliza literally runs into her older brothers friend, Chris, whom she had a crush on growing up. Now as adults they can act on their feelings, even if short lived. This was a fun sweet romance that I recommend for an afternoon read.

A little twist on the big brother’s best friend crush. Christian broke her heart before he went off to college. Eliza had let him know she cared about him. Years later she is coming back to Vegas to visit her brother who is conveniently not available for New Year’s Eve. He sends Christian to have dinner with her. I found the normal side of Vegas to be interesting addition to the story. Normal people really do live in Vegas. ¿ Both Chris and Eliza are likeable charactersYou can see my full review at More Than a Review dot com where I rate the level of sex, violence, language and drug/alcohol use in books.

Eliza is visiting her brother in Vegas for the holidays. He is a surgeon and has to cancel their plans on New Years eve. To make up for his blunder he fixes Eliza up with his best friend Christian. The guy who broke her heart 10 years ago. (They shared a kiss, but he was off to college and didn't want to do a long distance romance. She runs into Chris again, and they begin to build a relationship.  This was a fun, fast novella. The characters were realistic and the dialogue humorous. I was given an arc for an honest review.

Advanced Readers Copy Courtesy of Entangled Publishing...:) This is a super short and sexy little novella bout Eliza and Christian. Eliza is in Vegas to visit her brother for the next 2 weeks. Problem is he is very busy as he is a surgeon at the hospital, so when he cancels their New Years Eve's plan, he makes it up to her by setting her up instead with his best friend Christian. Problem is Eliza has spend the last 10 years trying to ignore and get over Christian as the last time they were together, she threw herself at him only to have the best kiss of her life before he back tracked and said she was too young for him etc. Now they have a whole night together in Vegas and as they say "What Happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" But what happens if after their hot night together they both want more? Really cute read, that I highly recommend, especially if you are after something quick and easy!!!

I enjoyed this little novella. Eliza has had a crush on her brothers best friend, Chris, since they were young. They haven't seen each other in ten years. When she comes back to Vegas for two weeks to visit her brother, she runs into Chris. I love a good best friends brother storyline and this one was good! I kind of wish this was a full length novel with an epilogue.

One Night in Vegas is a fun romantic novella from "new to me" author C.M. Stone. This is the love story of environmental anthropologist Eliza DeMatteo, and veterinarian Christian Yerrick. Chris is Eliza's brother's best friend and right before Chris left for college, they shared an amazing kiss. After years of being a part, they both have never forgotten the feelings of desire and need that that one kiss evoked. Now Eliza is back in her hometown of Las Vegas, visiting her very busy brother Jackson for New Year's. Jackson has always felt that Chris and Eliza belong together, so he asks Chris to show Eliza a good time in his absence. Eliza and Chris have amazing chemistry and Ms. Stone does an excellent job of creating the sexual tension between them. The build up to their evening together is slow, easy and flirty. Their worry about what each other is thinking and feeling is tangible. I really liked both Eliza and Chris, and was cheering for them to end up together from the moment I read about their teenage encounter. I really enjoyed this story. Considering the constraints of a novella, the characters are well-developed, interesting and real. I felt the connection between Eliza and Chris immediately and truly enjoyed learning about how their relationship began. If you are in the mood for a good, second chance romance, check out this upbeat holiday read.

A truly enjoyable quick read. This novella is well done and a story that left me with a smile. This is a new to me author but one I will definitely be watching out for. When Eliza makes a quick visit back to Vegas to visit her brother, the last person she wants to see is her teenage crush Chris. When she runs into him, literally, she finds herself being pulled toward him and he doesn't seem to mind! This is a good one and I recommend it!

This friends to lovers story brings together Eliza and Chris, childhood friends whose feelings for each other grew but were never acted upon due to their two year age difference. Now adults, Eliza is visiting her brother in Las Vegas and meets Chris again. Can a childhood crush become an adult love? This was a sweet story, showcasing a teenage crush that never died and finally gets the chance to mature into a real relationship. I liked both characters. Eliza was an engaging young woman, smart and friendly, realizing that her feelings for Chris have never died out but were put on the back burner. Chris is a smart and sensible man, finally having his chance to be with Eliza even if he realizes it's going to be a short and sweet affair. The love scenes between them are tender and sexy and it's obvious they have strong feelings for each other. It was an entertaining and fast paced story, easily read in an afternoon and with a lovely romance and happy ending for this couple that is well deserved. 4 stars.

3.5 - "It's just one night on vacation, right?" Stars. One Night in Vegas is a short sexy novella focusing on Eliza and Chris. Eliza is returning to Vegas to spend New Year with her workaholic brother, who conveniently cancels their New Years Eve dinner plans and arranges for Chris to take his place. Little does he know (or does he…) that his best friend and his little sister have more than just a little childhood reminiscing to catch up on. ”You have a talent for making the most innocent things sound dirty.” C. M. Stone has managed to cram a fair amount of second-chance loving into this enjoyable little novella. I really liked both Chris and Eliza, and the brother’s best friend trope never gets boring when well written, and this novella certainly is. Take into account that you get to see a little into the other side of Vegas as well, it was worth the hour or so it took to read. ”You look beautiful to me.” Looking forward to reading more from this author, and hopefully this series in the future.

ARC generously provided by Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review Eliza DeMatteo finds herself visiting her big brother, Jackson, back in their hometown of Las Vegas. Being the busy trauma surgeon, Jackson has set up his best friend to keep Eliza entertained on New Years Eve. Christian Yerrick is a vet heavily disguised as a lip smacking cowboy. He has been Jackson's best friend since they were kids, and had already broken Eliza's heart when they were teens. Being commitment averse, he had thrown himself into his work establishing a great veterinary practice, as well as a horse-stocked ranch. High on the hill, NYE sees more action than the casino fireworks, leaving Chris and Eliza contemplating their suppressed feelings for each other. This was a sweet big brother's best friend story. It was nicely written, with likeable MC's, but not long enough to separate the story from any other.
