Do Not Disturb by Mary Billiter a fab four-star read. This is the first book in the Resort Romances series and the first book by this author I have read, and I hope it won’t be the last as Mary Billiter writes with a lightness that you don’t come across often. The characters in this book face difficult circumstances but instead of letting them get bogged down, she makes them fight it and become stronger and more rounded as characters.
There is a romance to the story but it’s not the be all and e

Do Not Disturb by Mary Billiter is the first book in the Resort Romances Series. It was an amazing read that not only felt like I was right there with the characters but it was written amazingly. I not only laughed but some of the scenes she wrote had me laughing so hard I couldn’t breathe. The emotions in this book are what drew me in and why I couldn’t put the book down.

This is the first book I have read from this author and I loved it. I absolutely love romance stories but this also has some comedy. I love how the girl gets the guy. She is the one that saves him. I could not put this book down. It only took me a few hours to devour this unique story.

Katie Flanagan is still living with her parents and now she wants to make a life on her own. She finds out a luxury beachfront hotel is doing a mass hiring. Katie is so excited she is one of the first ones there.

Do Not Disturb is the first book in the Resort Romances series by Mary Billiter. The series is made up of standalone stories that are set in connected resorts, and centres on a different ‘couple’ in each book. I started this series a few books in and liked it so much that I went back to read all the other instalments that had been released. So, even though this is book one, I ended up reading all the other books before getting to this one. ‘Do Not Disturb” is where the series started, and

I won this book in a giveaway and was very excited to read it. At first I wasn't sure what I thought it started off semi slow however once I got past the first chapter it really got moving and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Katie Flanagan is a very relatable character, early twenties and not quite settled into living as an adult yet. She goes to a hiring event at a new hotel because she needs to pay for her new car and wants to move out on her own. Katie starts off rather immature and insecure. H

Good, Lighthearted story...

This was the first book that I've read by Mary Billiter, and it certainly won't be the last. This is book 1 of a series, and it was so refreshing to read a lighthearted book. The story was fun and sassy from page one. Katie is one of these girls that is clumsy and everything seems to happen to her, until she gets a job at this new hotel on the waterfront in OC. She thinks she screws her life up, but all isn't as it seems. She becomes the mouth for the hotel staff and e

Do Not Disturb by Mary Billiter is the first installment of the Resort Romances Series. It is a romantic, contemporary romance Katie and Chris a.k.a. Bogart. I must say, I was intrigued from the beginning with this story. Katie Flanagan is my spirit animal! She has sass to boot and also brains. Being presented with a difficult situation at work, she uses her journalistic
talents and gathers every one to help solve the issue. Falling in love was the least of

I love that the story has moxie from the get go - rather Katie sure does (and keeps it up the whole way through)! Billiter crafts a fun, smart, and spunky story that would be a great read while at a resort or wishing you were there. Can't wait to read more in the Resort Romances series!

It's very rare for me to abandon a book, especially to get halfway through and then abandon it, but I kept promising myself it was going to get better and it never did. Maybe I'm 40 years too old for it but I found all the characters to be shallow and irrational. Not my cup of tea at all.

Do Not Disturb by Mary Billiter is a wonderful 5 star story! I was so drawn in to the characters, their lives and the drama surrounding the hotel.

This book was so engaging and had me speed reading to see what was going to happen next. I love that this book was not only romance but had a nicely developed and well thought out story with it. The characters were all very well written and I completely fell in love with Bogart, Katie’s love interest and Patrick, her brother.

* I received an ebook from the author but that in no way affects my review, opinions or rating of this book. *

This is my first book by this author, but it will not be my last. The author weaves a tale that is one part romance and one part adventure...the reader is able to predict some of the plot as the twists and turns don't distract the reader from what they see happening. The author's writing style flows at a break neck pace and before the reader realizes it, the story is over. The reader is

Do Not Disturb is the first book in the Resort Romances series. It is a quick read and, thankfully, is not a cliffhanger. I also appreciated that it wasn’t overloaded with over-the-top bedroom scenes. The characters are an eclectic blend which brings depth to the story. This would make a great book to take with you if you are going to have to spend time waiting somewhere.

This book takes you away from your day to day life and is a hard one to put down, you get very wrapped up in the story line.

Do Not Disturb by Mary Billiter is a romance that centres around a young woman, Katie, who finds herself unable to stand by while her employer exploits part-time workers to line the pockets of those further up. It is a perfect balance of intriguing romance and tense office drama.


A love triangle is established early on. To an extent I found one side of it unconvincing, but as the book progressed I found myself more invested in the romantic storyline. I liked how Katie’s family life and romantic

‘Do Not Disturb’ by Mary Billiter is meant to be a romance story but I feel that storyline is secondary to the ‘Erin Brockovitch’-style tale of Katie Flanagan who finds an incriminating document at her new job which shows her new company are deliberately working their part time staff just under the quota of full time hours so they don’t earn full time benefits which results in the senior management getting a larger bonus.

I feel like both storylines suffer, the romance isn’t prominent enough – it
