Operation One Night Stand: Christine Hughes

**Copy provided by author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.**

This book was great! Caroline was amazing (after she got out of self-pity mode) and one hell of a go-getter. When she first walks to the bartender (Brian) and starts the witty drink orders...I cracked up. Seriously. The pair of them were enough to give me side aches.

This book reminded me of a rom-com least that was the way it played out in my head. Caroling at her spinning class the day after spending the night with Ryan (Brian's roommate and friend) had me laughing out loud at work.

The interactions between Brian and Caroline were my favorite (of course, they are the cutest couple) but Caroline and her friends were also amusing. Her girlfriends are the best ones a girl could ask for. They intervened when she was sitting on a couch eating an ice cream flavor named after her. They pushed her to get back out into the "one night stand" game. They supported her with whatever she was going through. Amazing best friends.

Brian was cute. He respected the lines that Caroline drew, and her relationship with Ryan. I liked the way his sister was introduced into the story, and brought Brian and Caroline closer together. The ending of this one wasn't exactly an HEA. So be warned.

This wan't too long of a book, but it was a nice break from pure smut books with no plot. This one had a plot that was a typical romance book, but it was still so sweet! The only thing I didn't like about this book is that I felt that the intern was slut-shamed too much. As far as I could tell, she was a bit of a homewrecker, but this was the first time she had done it. Oh well, at least Caroline finally moved on from the whole ordeal.

I hope that this author goes on with some of the characters. I will be keeping an eye on this author for new books!
