Synopsis (Goodreads):
What kind of man pays a woman to spend the night with him—platonically?

Tony Aguilar’s getting desperate. He doesn’t remember the last time he slept more than a few hours at a time, and he’s willing to do just about anything to get a good night’s rest, even if it’s some last ditch effort and foolish notion that he needs a woman’s soft touch.

What kind of woman accepts?

Andrea “Drea” DeMatteo knows when a deal’s too good to pass up, no matter how bizarre it seems. Her mother’s drowning in debt from medical bills, and Drea’s employer is running out of patience with her missed days and hastily rescheduled meetings to care for her dying parent.

One night might be all it takes.
Thoughts on One Night: Yooouuuuu guys. This novella is so good. Tony's desperate for sleep and Drea's the one who steps in to try to help. It's unorthodox and it could have been creepy, but it worked. For both of them.

So. Tony's problems run a little deeper than just run of the mill sleeping issues. Bringing Drea into his life could complicate things in more ways than he's comfortable with. But he feels like he doesn't have a choice, so he takes the plunge and invites her in.

Drea also has a few issues she's dealing with. She's running on fumes herself and only takes Tony up on his offer to give herself some breathing room with her mother's illness and all the related medical things that go along with it.

A quick, oddly sexy little story that lays the foundation for a complex relationship.Tony and Drea's story isn't over yet and I'm ready for the next step they're going to take.
