    1. "We have tonight. And one night is all you need."One Night Is All You Need: A Short Story was hauntingly beautiful. It's a short YA paranormal love story that gave me the creeps and made my skin tingle. At first, I didn't know what this novel was up to but as I went through the pages, I found myself so consumed by the simple and surprising plot about the teenager girl Margot Green who took the tour of an old historic town named Key West together with her family and who later on met a guy named S [...]

    2. One Night Is All you need is a captivating and haunting read. Things might have escalated quickly, but since this is a short stories I can't really complain do I? This book make me long to meet and get to know more of the characters. I specially like the setting of the book, which was in a small town called Key West. The story quite focused on the events rather than the characters for me to actually connect with them, but nevertheless, the story has served its purpose which was to leave a piece [...]

    3. This book is currently free on . (click the link)Thank you sis Pearl (click the link to read her review) for recommending this book to me. This is such a wonderful guilty pleasure and well-written story. It takes place on a town called Key West, wherein Margot together with her parents are on tour. While on it, a mysterious boy named Sam caught her attention. They had a good conversation and seems these two have mutual interest. Small towns have their own secrets and mysteries but it's up to you [...]

    4. I am a big fan of short stories. It's a great way to see if you're going to like the writing style of an author that you're checking out, and a nice way to relax in between novels.Or so I thoughtI was already familiar with Kimberly's writing when I came upon this book on - and how could I say no to a free short story? It had been sitting on my Kindle, just waiting to be read, when I decided a few days ago to "crack the spine."I should have known that it was going to bring on the feels.Margot is [...]

    5. 4.5 stars"It's okay," said Sam, his eyes softening. He held out his hand to her. "We have tonight, and one night is all you need."This is a short paranormal romance story. And it was creepy.And so our MC Margot gets rejected by some girls at the beginning. They were unwilling to hang out with her. But then, she meets a handsome boy-Sam. And so, they decide to go on a date at Key West City Cemetery. ( you might be thinking, a cemetery, huh?)Sam shows her the graves and Margot's reaction when she [...]

    6. Oh my lordThis was so sweet, yet sad. Margot is touring through a historical town with her parents when she notices a boy off to the side. She doesn't think much of it until he approaches her and they talk. Her mother calls out to her and Sam tells her that he will catch up with her later.When he does catch up with her, he asks her to make an excuse to ditch her parents and she does. He takes her to a cemetery, where they share a kiss and Sam reveals a secret that will change everything.

    7. In honor of halloween, a cute but not so scary ghost story in the YA genre. Short and well written, and best of all, it's free on Kindle.

    8. I'm not one to read short stories, in fact the only other short stories I've read are the readings we have to do in English class from time to time. I've got nothing against them, it's just I'm more of one to tune into full blown novels with all the meat.Back in June I raved about Kimberly's book Grunge Gods and Graveyards because I absolutely loved it. So as any reader would do if they love a book, I looked up the rest of her work and discovered this short story and a few other works by her, so [...]

    9. That's all???I can honestly say I'd read anything this author writes, this short story is just as good as her full length novels and they both always leave you wanting more.

    10. This was an enjoyable little ghost story (I do love Giarratano's writing), but I felt the ending was a tad abrupt.

    11. I could eat Kimberly Giarratano's prose with a fork and a steak knife. There are no workmanlike sentences here or flowery turns of phrase. Every word is tight, muscular, and load-bearing. Her novel, GRUNGE GODS AND GRAVEYARDS, was the same way.This short is not a sequel to GGG, but they are of a piece, and even share the same universe (with a few winks to the latter.) I wasn't sure what I was getting into here's described alternately as romance, supernatural, paranormal, and mystery. But it's wh [...]

    12. " I'd never put you in danger. Besides, I like you, and I don't meet many girls I can say that to." " We have tonight, and one night is all you need" One Night Is All You Need is a captivating story. I saw Pearl's book review (Hi ate! *awkward wave* hahaha) book review here and it made me interested to read this. It's about a girl Margot Green who is currently on a tour with her parents at Key West. Key West is a creppy and old historical place. Then she meets Sam and boom! It all happens in one [...]

    13. ONE NIGHT IS ALL YOU NEED by Kimberly G. Giarratano is a great introduction to the author's writing. The Key West setting comes alive like a character in this short story and made me want to be there. Margot, however, doesn't want to be there with her parents. That is until local hottie Sam comes to her attention. Their whirlwind night comes to unexpected end when Margot learns the truth about Sam. I love a story that takes place in one night, and this story captures that magic wonderfully!

    14. I'm a fan of settings that take you somewhere else, and One Night Is All You Need certainly does that. You get to experience a night in sultry Key West, along with romance and a smattering of spooky. Read it in sandals with an umbrella in your drink!

    15. I loved it!Once again Kim has provided me with a wonderful escape from reality! I only wish it could have lasted longer! I look forward to her next publication.

    16. I love the writing style here! I don't often read short stories because, well, they are short. But I enjoyed this. Makes me want to read more by Kimberly G. Giarratano!

    17. I enjoyed this short story. Saw the twist coming (maybe I shouldn't have read the reviews before I bought it) but I liked what the author did with the ending.Good writing (and editing - only noticed one tiny punctuation thing), perfect for a Sunday afternoon.
