One Night in Santiago by Audra North - Book Review
From the Blurb:

Lily Stanton's vacation goes from bad to worse when a storm strands her in a foreign country, arguing with an arrogant—and very sexy—stranger over the last available hotel room.

Successful CEO Bruno Komarov wasn't expecting the gorgeous woman checking in at the reception desk to challenge him over a room. Even more surprising, he actually enjoys their exchange.

But when Lily proposes a compromise—she'll take the bed and he can sleep on the couch—Bruno pushes his attraction aside and assures himself that this can remain strictly business. After all, they're both adults capable of keeping their hands to themselves. They'll share the room, get a good night's sleep, and be off to their respective destinations in the morning.

What could possibly happen in just one night?

The Review:

Lily and Bruno must share a hotel room when their flights are grounded, but neither are complaining. The sparks have been flying well before they stepped in the elevator and there's no denying their attraction.

This is a very quick read but it totally hits the spot! Sometimes novellas can really leave me wanting, but when they are done well, it can be so nice to read a book in a single sitting that leaves you feeling all sorts of happy - One Night in Santiago is one of these!

Lily is a successful business woman, but she has been through a bit of a rough time, having found her fiancĂ© cheating on her. She’s not used to taking what she wants in life, but she definitely wants Bruno. Bruno is quick to learn of Lily’s troubles and makes it his job to comfort her. Together they are really sweet. Bruno is also a business man, and he usually goes for more vacuous women. He’s attracted to Lily’s intelligence, though, and together you can tell they will make a pretty smexy couple.

Of course, in this one night stand type of novella, we don’t get to learn a whole lot about how they will be together after the happy for now ending, but throughout it is clear that they have an emotional connection beyond their one night of sex.

The sexy-times are also great – we’ll call it fairly explicit, very steamy, vanilla fun-times. I like the way Bruno and Lily’s physical connection works into them getting to know each other, as well as Lily finally taking something she wants.

This is an awesome quick read. I’m definitely going to have to read more in Audra North’s Stanton Family line.
