One Night Stand had me smiling to myself at the witty humour and at the stupidity (at points) and wit of the main character, Eleanor. This book tends to follow the falling for the friend cliché but I found this book entertaining and heart warming.
I enjoyed this book as I have most Little Black Dress publications. The thing that left me a little miffed was the character Hugh; I felt he was a little underwritten. I wanted to know a little more about him, more attention was written about Eleanor's relative, June.
Eleanor Connor writes erotica for a living as well as working in her local pub. Hugh is an endearing character, and a great pastry chef. Geek turned confident man with plenty of luck with the ladies meets frustrated under achiever Eleanor Connor. These friends have never been closer; they live next door to each other, sharing a bedroom wall and all the sound effects of a night of passion.
Eleanor gets drunk after some news and out of annoyance she has a one night stand. She wakes up the next morning with the worst hangover and next to no memory. Realisation creeps in, and the condom hunt begins. The story tells her life, hormones, lusting and the attempts to find the father-to-be that nobody seems to remember.
I did not realise this was by the same author as another LBD publication "Spirit willing, flesh weak". I have to say I much prefer `One night Stand' its a great improvement! I have already passed the book onto my sister to read. If your considering reading this, go for it! I read it in a matter of hours, like a one night stnad i just wish it had lasted longer.
