As a reward for a hard-won contract, best friends Drea and Joe head to Buenos Aires for sun, wine, and the tango. But their week of relaxation is off to an ominous start when a reservation mix-up leaves them with only one option: one room…and one bed.

Exhausted from travel, the two friends figure it won’t be a big deal to share a bed for one night—right up until they wake wrapped around each other and seconds away from, well, you know.

When the two decide to follow through on their impulse, they protect their friendship by agreeing that when the vacation’s over, the fling’s over. While Drea’s convinced it’s nothing more than a mutual itch, Joe discovers Drea might be everything he’s ever wanted. Now all he has to do is convince her that what happens in Buenos Aires doesn’t always have to stay in Buenos Aires.

Erin: Amanda K. Byrne’s debut novel, One Night in Buenos Aires, is a short, fun read. If you are looking for a quick, hot romance fix, this book should hit the spot. It’s a fast paced story about friends turned lovers after, as the title implies, one night of passion.

As with most novellas, there isn’t much character development, but that didn’t stop me from thoroughly enjoying the romance of Drea and Joe. They were very relatable, believable characters and there were enough funny, sweet moments to keep me turning the page. Sure there’s nothing new going on with this book, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a pleasant way to spend an hour or so reading One Night in Buenos Aires. I liked the setting (though I think the author could have definitely added a bit to make the sights and sounds of Buenos Aires more authentic) and the scene with the dinner at the drag club was lots of fun. There’s not a whole lot of steam in the book, but sometimes that’s not a bad thing. I liked this enough that I’ll for sure be checking out Byrne’s next book.

Erin is a book addict! She loves books of all kinds, but her favorites are Contemporary Romance or YA (and she reads both boy/boy AND boy/girl, sometimes even girl/girl!) She's been reading since she could hold a book in her hands and doesn't see that changing any time soon. Give her a Coke, kick ass tunes from her favorite playlists, and a book, and she's in reading heaven.

She's a Texan, though she drinks her tea plain and NOT sweet. She loves cheesecake, strawberry limeade's from Sonic and her favorite color is purple. In her books, she loves an HEA, but she never minds if the road is rough to get there, as long as the reward is worth the struggle.
