That Night by Diane Dooley

That NightContemporary Romance Novella 

I have read and reviewed Diane Dooley’s Science Fiction Romance stories and enjoyed them all.  I knew she could write and tell a good story.  When she asked if I would like a copy of her contemporary romance novella, That Night, I said yes.

That Night is the story of what can happen when a one night stand is not enough for one of the parties.  Lindy has a rule, no dating a co-worker but she breaks it one night when she has too much champagne.  Her way of coping is to play like nothing happened.  Alex has different ideas.  He bides his time until both are snowed in a remote cabin just before Christmas.  Then he begins his attack.  What follows is fun and entertaining.  I said Diane Dooley could write and while I would have preferred another SFR I really enjoyed That Night.  

That Night is only 44 pages but it manages to tell the complete story of two people who need to give their relationship a chance.  Pick it up for a good entertaining short read.  That Night is an ebook.

Wild Rose Press published That Night by Diane Dooley in 2012.

Goodreads Summary:

Lindy Hopkins works early, works late, always gets the job done and never, ever has incredible one night stands with handsome coworkers. Until that night. But it's okay. She's just going to keep on pretending that it never happened.

Alex Anderson never imagined that buttoned-down workaholic Lindy had the ability to transform into a table-dancing, champagne-guzzling femme fatale. Until that night. And it's not okay that she's been giving him the coldest of shoulders ever since.

Neither are prepared to face the other, but they have no choice. They've each booked the company Catskill cabin for a few days before Christmas and are both too stubborn to budge. Over mulled wine and under a blanket of snow, it's starting to look like that night might happen all over again. But this time Alex is playing for keeps, while Lindy is determined that no man will come before her career. Will they find that love is forever or will it be just another night to remember
