To the highest bidder goes…

A friendship with benefits?

When Tessa Noble takes the stage at a charity auction after a sexy makeover, her best friend, Ryan Bateman, must place the winning bid. It’s definitely not because he’s jealous.

His Until Midnight is a Cinderella-esque tale of love between friends.

Tess and Ryan have been best friends from childhood to adulthood. Tess has been crushing on Ryan for some time now, but he only sees her as his best friend. At least that’s what she thinks, until a bachelor auction—she soon discovers her feelings are far from one-sided.

Thought it all happens like a whirlwind, the reader is quickly engaged in a romance that is as feisty and sexy as it is mature and heart-warming.

Ryan and Tessa have been lifelong friends and their families are close friends as well. There is an underlying attraction but neither one will admit it or let alone act on it, until the auction happens. I really liked this story because you could feel the character's internal struggle on what their next move should be going forward. They have been friends since forever but a lot is at stake if this doesn’t work out. We do get some push and pull but I loved that it wasn’t dragged out and everythi ...more

> > Judging a Book by its Cover < <
To be honest, the cover is not all-too flattering. The couple looks older than stated. Despite the pose, they feel too formal. That said, the synopsis did interest me so I opted to give this new-to-me author a try.

This was my first book in the series as I did not realize it was part of one. Tessa loves Ryan but values their friendship so much that she is afraid that a romance will ruin it, and Ryan is attracted to Tessa but thinks he is not good enough for her. I found the promise made to the brother to be ridiculous and unbelievable to think it held any weight. .

I like that most of the book was spent on the main characters since it was a short read. I was distracted by the chapters about other people be

This bachelor auction shows you that members of the The Cattleman’s Club are more than meets the eye; Rancher to Glamour Girl….Saddled Horse to Maybach.

HIS TIL MIDNIGHT is Reese Ryan contribution to the Cattleman’s Club Series and is a great friend to lovers’ story.

Ryan and Tessa have been friends since they were knee-high to a grasshopper. Being around each other as much as they were it is expected they would have a certain amount of chemistry. Everyone except these two can see that they are lo

Who says best friends can't be lovers?

I suspected from the first interaction I encountered with Ryan and Tessa that there was more to what they felt for each other than just friendship. A blind person could see they loved one another and was too afraid to admit what and how they felt to first themselves and then to family and friends. Funny how the ex girlfriend in her bid to break our hero and heroine up ended up causing our hero to admit to his true feelings for our heroine. It turned out fine

I have read many friends to lovers romance novels. I am always looking to see how an Author will make it unique and different from what is on the market. I will say Reese did that for me. Ryan and Tessa's story was in my eyes, was that gem that needed to be polished. That's what you had with Tessa and Ryan. You often do not recognize what you have until it's too late. Plus for me once you make a life altering decision there is no turning back. Ie the time in Dallas for Tessa and Ryan.

Love Texas Cattleman's Club series. Tessa and Ryan grew up as best friends but love was underneath all that kidding around. When Tessa's brother has to back out of bachelor auction she steps in for him as added bonus for the cowboys. Her best friend Ryan can't stand any other man taking her out so he out bids all the others and plans a very romantic weekend for them. When they get to Dallas, everything changes and friends become lovers. So glad they realized that they were made for each other be ...more

His Until Midnight is my first Reese Ryan book and I throughly enjoyed it! Ryan and Tessa are lifelong best friends who have been denying their feelings for wayyy to long.
I’m a sucker for a good friends to lovers story and this one even has an element of friend’s little sister to it! The story is fast paced but definitely doesn’t feel like insta love and allows for Ryan and Tessa to struggle with the friendship issue without it becoming drawn out.
I’m excited to read more from Reese Ryan!

Are you looking for a hot and steamy read? Well look no further, His Until Midnight had me fanning a couple of times. Ryan and Tessa are best friends that are very attractive to each other but dare not cross that line for fear of ruining their friendship. That all changes when Tessa appears in a charity auction with a makeover that blows her best friend mind and he places the winning bid.

I love Friend to Lovers romances and Reese Ryan did not disappoint at all. This was a page turner and it was

I liked Ryan and Tessa’s story that applied the friends to lovers trope so well. Kudos to author, Reese Ryan for a great romantic story that that had me rooting for them. I loved the way the bachelor auction was incorporated in the story. That’s a familiar trope also, but the twist Reese Ryan put on it was a real treat! If you are looking for a sweet and sexy romance story to read, I highly recommend His Until Midnight.

Best friends forever Tessa Noble, Tripp Noble and Ryan Bateman. A sexy makeover, a weekend getaway, and a bachelor/bachelorette auction, change the course of their life. This was a fast pace story that had my heart racing as to what would happen next. Once again Reese Ryan has held our attention with an amazing story. I want to read the entire Texas Cattleman's Club.

Both main characters have to be willing to step out of their comfort zones. Ryan Bateman and Tessa Noble have been family friends since both were children. An auction brings the two closer when Tessa decides to participate in the auction. Seeing his friend in a new light Ryan has no choice but to act on his feelings. This friends to lovers romance was very enjoyable.

His Until Midnight is a cute friends-to-lovers romance that will have you cheering for our couple to be, Tessa and Ryan.

After spending a weekend together that gets more than a little heated, both Tessa and Ryan have to decide if their friendship is worth taking things a bit further. The story pacing was great and there is a good amount of build-up to the romance between these two long time friends.

There was some over-the-edge dramatics to move the story plot along IMO but those said dramatics

I cannot say enough how frigging wonderful this story is. It is a beautifulllll telling of friends to lovers, and the heat y’all, whew!

Tessa and Ryan dealing with the change in their situation is everything you’d want in this kind of story. It has all the drama needed to keep you engaged, the supporting characters are the perfect compliment to move it along, without them being a distraction. This is just a well balanced tale that I thin you will enjoy.
