KISS ME AT MIDNIGHT by Diane Alberts
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…
This was a really sweet story about missed opportunities and second chances to get it right. I really liked the characters and the interplay between them, how they faced and resolved issues from their past in order to be together. Definitely a good read, especially for this tine of year. Sweet, sexy, and a hot hero - what more could you want?

This was hot, hot, hot and I really liked it that way. I loved the fiestiness of the heroine and the drop dead gorgeous beauty of the hero. They were perfect for each other and together, they were explosive. I gobbled this one up faster than you can say 'Santiago.' I would have loved for this to be a longer book than it is - I wanted more Bruno!
