No Dress Required - Cari Quinn This was a really sweet story. Not smut so much as a fun romance, but that's not to say there wasn't sex.

Noelle has been in love with her best friend's brother, Jake, for years. But he's never really expressed reciprocal feelings, so she's giving it one last shot. She plans to put it all on the line. It's New Year's Eve, she has the perfect dress, and she's going to start her new year off by telling Jake how she really feels. If it doesn't work, she's prepared to give up.

Unfortunately, she's carjacked on her way home to get ready for the party. And, as providence would have it, Jake is driving by in the aftermath. Since she has no car and no way to get into her apartment, he takes her to his home. And they have a very sweet, private party of their own.

I love my HEAs, and even though this was a story on the short side, Ms. Quinn does a great job creating believable characters I can root for. Nicely done.
