Review: Kiss Me at Midnight by Diane Alberts

Title: Kiss Me at Midnight
By: Diane Alberts

BookWhisperer's Rating: 

Her New Year’s resolution was seduction.

Doctor Ashley Hanes has one mission and one mission only—end her annoyingly long dry streak and ring in the New Year with a bang. Literally. When her long lost and oh-so-sexy ex-best friend, Ethan Pierce, shows up as if he hadn’t broken her heart all those years ago, suddenly she doesn’t want to bring home just any man. She wants Ethan.

What should have been one night of blow-your-mind make-up sex quickly turns into another. And another. Before long, Ashley thinks maybe she and Ethan should reunite for good. If only the elusive bachelor will stop running from his tortured past and trust a future in Ashley’s arms.

Diane Alberts is a multi-published, bestselling contemporary romance author with Entangled Publishing. She also writes New York Times and USA Today bestselling new adult books under the name Jen McLaughlin. ON ONE CONDITION hit #18 on the Barnes and Noble bestseller list, and TRY ME hit #76 on Amazon. CAPTIVATED BY YOU hit #31 on the Barnes and Noble bestseller list. Diane is represented by Louise Fury at The Bent Agency. Her goal is to write so many fantastic stories that even a non-romance reader will know her name.
Diane has always been a dreamer with a vivid imagination, but it wasn’t until 2011 that she put her pen where her brain was, and became a published author.  Since receiving her first contract offer, she has yet to stop writing. Though she lives in the mountains, she really wishes she was surrounded by a hot, sunny beach with crystal clear water. She lives in Northeast Pennsylvania with her four kids, a husband, a schnauzer mutt, a cat, and a Senegal parrot. In the rare moments when she’s not writing, she can usually be found hunched over one knitting project or another.

I found both Ethan and Ashley really likable characters.  Both has some inter-turmoil spinning around in their heads but I found that when they got together, that turmoil calmed down and let us see the carefree side of Ethan and Ashley.  However, this carefreeness doesn’t last forever. 

It was wonderful to read that every time these two characters got together; you got a little more insight to what was going on in their heads.  Ethan is battling his feelings for Ashley but cannot commit to her because he hates the town he grew up in.  Everyone reminds him of his past when he was picked on as a child.   Ashley is just battling her feelings for Ethan; knowing that this was supposed to be just one night between two old, ex-friends has turned into so much more.      

Ashley finds herself in a position as the sole caretaker of her mother and leaves her job to do so.  This permanently will station Ashley in the town that she grew up in.  Whereas Ethan has stopped by for a visit, swearing that he will never stay in the town longer than he has to.  These two events create a problem for our characters because a one night hook up turns into a lot more and top that with feelings for each other, Ethan and Ashley have some decisions to make.
