You can’t avoid fate… Eliza DeMatteo returns to her hometown of Las Vegas on vacation knowing her matchmaking older brother is probably going to try and set her up with his best friend. But Eliza already knows plenty about sexy cowboy Christian Yerrick, the man who crushed her heart when they were kids. In fact, she's determined to avoid Chris completely...until she runs into his truck on the Las Vegas freeway.
Chris has his own misgivings about seeing Eliza. His lingering feelings for her trigger all of his issues with relationships. Especially long-distance ones, which is the only kind of relationship they’d ever have. Still, there's no reason they can't enjoy New Year's Eve together. But when the fireworks between them burn hotter than the Vegas Strip, Chris and Eliza know they only have one night to get it right. Because this time, what doesn't happen in Vegas could haunt them forever...
Kassiah: I really like Second Chance romance stories and was excited to check out One Night in Vegas by new-to-me author C.M. Stone. The summary for this book is pretty spot-on, so I’ll just get to how I felt.
This story was fast-paced and great for anyone looking for a New Year’s Eve read. I liked the characters and thought it was so sweet that Eliza’s brother played matchmaker. Both Eliza and Chris have pasts to get over, and I was surprised by how much story Stone could fit into this little novella. Less than a hundred pages for me to fall for both of them. There is a crazy thing that is said regarding birth control that I have never heard before, but whatever. It’s definitely original. I’m glad I read this and will definitely be checking out more of Stone’s books in the future.
