"You are so wrong for me."

Levi had to agree--he was. He was leaving Chicago in a few short weeks. He didn't do commitment--ever. But everything about this night, this girl, was so good. So right. Until at 11:59 p.m. she got out of his bed, got dressed and left!

What had he done? Things had hardly started and she was off! Yet he was bored with simpering women he couldn't get

I do enjoy Mira Lyn Kelly's books. I like the way her characters fall in love. I never have to wonder what the hero/heroine sees in their partner because the two always mesh so well together. Of course, when they have to face the choice between being together and everything else each of them has been working for, they both have to figure out what their true priorities are. The only downside to finishing a new book by Ms. Kelly is that I now have to wait for the next one. *sigh* Maybe I'll just g ...more

“Elise…you’re looking up my shorts.”
“What? No,” she gasped, shocked. First, in hearing her name, which confirmed her rescuer’s identity, and then, because—oh, God—she totally was! Only it wasn’t some creepy, salacious leer. Not really.

This was an engrossing and fast read about two hard-working dedicated people with their own respective family history - and who doesn't - (view spoiler) falling into lust and then love.

This author's books are consistently enjoyable for me (Wild Fling or a Wedding Ring? even got a rare 5* review from me) so a $2.99 price point is enough to get me to buy without so much as a glance at the blurb or the reviews.

This one would have been another 5* book, but things went a bit limp towards the end like the author realized she was running too close to her word limit and had to tie everything up fast. And the epilogue gave me cavities and a stomachache.

I'll write more later. It's defi
I've read the previous HP's by this author & enjoyed the heck out of them, this one didn't work for me much. A one night stand that turns into a bit more. The heroine has parental issues and the hero has parental baggage. Heroine is the commitment sort while the hero is all about moving on.

I was looking forward to this book, I have read all of Mira Lyn Kelly's books and enjoyed them and this is the first I picked to read from the newly relaunched RIVA line.

If I had to pick one phrase to describe this book (and indeed all of Mira Lyn Kelly's books) then it would be "twenty-first century", through and through her books are modern and up to date. This author's voice is perfect for her contemporary stories and they very much appeal to me.

Everything about this story feels real; the her

A very steamy & emotional  read
Usually I don't care for the one night stand, I don't like it when the heroine jump into bed with the hero seconds after meeting him. But in this book, it s well executed.

Elise is a delightful heroine. She is sweet & gentle, she has dreams & works hard to achieve them. Her interaction with her sister, her nephew & the dog Bruno, is funny & heart- warming. Levi is a damaged hero who think he isn't a good guy, Elise & the reader know better.

I've gotten a little disenfranchised with Harlequin lately. I used to be absolutely in love with their Presents and Desire category romances back in the 90's. The stories were always wonderful and while there might have been a few authors here and there I didn't like as much, I pretty much knew I would enjoy the majority of what they put out. These days, I am just sick of the sheikh billionaire baby stories with god awful heroes who are overly macho and borderline abusive in their controlling be ...more

It was nice, but I would not recommend it unless you’re a Harlequin fan. I skimmed a couple sex scenes.

Sarah Wendell recommended this during one of her podcasts. This book is not for me, but I can see the draw for some. I’m always hesitant to read Harlequin. They hire authors to churn out books at a fast pace and limit pages per book. It stifles creativity - in my opinion. I’d rather read authors who are not required to write multiple books per year. This was ok, but it was easy to put down. And

I have long been a fan of Mira’s books as they are always filled with little surprises that spice up the plot. In Never Stay Past Midnight, the author had me laughing out loud at the antics of the ever lovable Great Dane, having two Great Danes myself I could relate to the hilarious things these type of dogs get up to.

The dog was also the star of the show as he is ultimately was brings Elise and Levi back toge
