Decent book, too much of history & talk of ghosts. The heroine always thought her mother was dead & then found out she wasn't instead she died recently leaving her a hotel that actually belonged to the heroine's father & the one he left her when they divorced, in return he took Mia.

The hero Ethan is the son of the man, the heroine's mother left them from. The H's father & h's father were best friend, see too much of family drama. She decides to restore the hotel & no matter h

2 stars. No rounding.

Unbelievable, and not in the good way. This whole story was too convoluted, slow and sad. The premise was interesting, but Ethan's interest in Mia felt ... Oedipal. Kinda icky, that. Further, what should have been character-building felt like too much revisiting, dwelling on, wallowing in the past. It had flashes, but overall, a muddy book.

ETA: One last note, FYI. It's also issued as Sleeping Partner (Modern Romance Series Extra) Sleeping Partner (Modern Romance Series Extra) (Modern Romance Series Extra) by Kelly Hunter .

The first half of this book was great. There was tension both between the hero & heroine as well as their own individual stories but there were a heap of family tensions also.i was fine with their story (with the exception of a bizarre dance scene which seemed unusual and anachronistic for a 24 year old) . But I felt the story of the heroine's mother was not resolved satisfactorily nor was her father's so called bitterness. It all seemed like a simple bandaid to cure deep wounds. This was a ...more

always loved kelly hunter's books... I love the dialogue more than anything and laughed at the playing ghosts :)

I liked the romance well enough, but some of the familial dynamics were very uncomfortable for me. Not the pseudo-brother/sister stuff because they were never that, but the deal her mom and dad negotiated. That's just so, so terrible.

I want to stay at that hotel though. That sounds amazing.

A sexy, sweet, yet sentimental romance - what more could you ask for? The humorous banter between Mia and Ethan made me laugh, and I loved the side interactions between Ethan and his father. The setting was fantastic - the local colour provided additional depth to the story, which was really all about complicated messy family ties and love.

Mia receives an old hotel as inheritance when the mother she never knew passes away. She's always thought her mother was dead. But she learns a lot about life when she arrives to restore it and hires the son of the man her mother chose, as her project manager. Very interesting story full of emotion, need for forgiveness, learning life lessons.

4 stars

Flirty romance with both protagonists working through emotional scars. I found Mia's traumas much more convincing than Ethan's and wanted her to find a HEA. After the betrayals by the two most important people in her life, she deserved one.

Mostly good, though never figuring out why her mother left kind of bugged me. (view spoiler)

I really enjoyed this book. The sparks between Mia and Ethan were great. I liked that they were able to bring everyone together and to forgive the past.
