This is the second book in Christie Ridgway’s “Heartbreak Hotel” series. It can easily be read as a stand-alone. The first book in this series, Our Last First Kiss, told the story of the best friend of a jilted bride Audra Montgomery. Auda’s friend Lily, the heroine , in book 1 took Auda to to The Hathaway Hotel at Dragonfly Beach, better known as The Heartbreak Hotel, to recover from her trauma. Audra Montgomery is the heroine in book 2. Me and Mr. Jones begins where the last book ends. Audra, ...more

I was ridiculously excited to read book two in the Heartbreak Hotel seres after reading book one and I can say that I was not disappointed in the least with Me and Mr. Jones! It was every bit as enchanting as Our Last First Kiss.
I love Christie Ridgeway’s writing style. It is sunny, bright and like a breath of fresh air. Her characters are believable and engaging, the dialogue is natural and flows well, and her stories are simply beautiful!

Love is a gift everyone deserves. So why do we take for granted the blessing bestowed upon us? That is why I find The Heartbreak Hotel series so wonderful. Christie Ridgway points out something obvious that we all tend to forget. There is beauty buried within heartache. Love is a leap of faith that comes with flaws, but it's the hope that blossoms from the painful that points us in the right direction. Me and Mr. Jones opens the heart to what love can be. If we never lose heart and keep the fait ...more

I received a free, advanced copy of this book from the publisher. This is my unbiased and voluntary review.

In Book 1, Audra Montgomery is left at the alter, by her fiancee, in a text. Her BFF and maid of honor, Lilly Durand, whisks her away to The Hathaway at Dragonfly Beach, recently dubbed Heartbreak Hotel. While Audra locks herself away in her room, in the dark, watching horror shows, Lilly steps out and runs into, Alec, the best man, who is related to the Hathaway family, and is staying ther

I am loving this Heartbreak Hotel series! You check in with heartbreak and leave healed and possibly with a new love. At least that’s the rumor, although Kane Hathaway gets very annoyed whenever it’s brought up. He feels it’s just setting the Hotel up to fail and disappoint its customers, and as assistant manager he doesn’t want to see that.

But what was great about this book was it was Kane’s turn to fall in love. With a broken hearted woman, who had been stood up at the alter. She checked in wi

Can two people who have solemnly sworn off ever falling in love find their soul mates in less than two weeks?

It would seem at first that Audra is no where near ready to start a new romance, but the emotional journey that the author takes her and Kane on is so intricately nuanced, so perfectly paced, that it seems entirely natural for their love to blossom almost overnight. If Audra learned one thing from her failed engagement, it’s that she now knows what she doesn’t want. Kane is as different

5 STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review

Welcome to The Hathaway! Holy moly did I love this story. I loved Kane and how he was willing to help Audra with her lists. It funny how when we don't necessary want something it seems to fall into our laps. Kane and Audra have both been hurt by love in the past. Neither wants to go there again, but something more powerful is at play with these two.

Kane is everything I wanted him to be. He is hard working, not afraid to help out, and to be dirty,

I received an advance copy of this book, and I voluntarily wrote an honest review.

This is the second book in Christie Ridgway’s “Heartbreak Hotel” series. However, because the author skillfully explains background information, it can easily be read as a stand-alone.

Having read the first book in the series I was very excited to read Audra's story. After being jilted at the altar, Audra's best friend Lily took her to a resort, known as Heartbreak Hotel, because it is supposed to help people find true love, when they've had their heart broken. After Lily found love with the ex-best man, they leave to go back to work, leaving Audra with her torn up wedding dress, curtains closed, and looking like a fright as she hasn't seen the inside of a shower cubicle since ...more

Audra is a jilted bride whom is trying to heal and move on from being left at the alter. She hides out in her room at The Hathaway watching crime shows, living in the dark, and staying in her wedding dress.

Kane is the manager at the Hathaway and part of the legacy behind the resort. However when he meets Audra she thinks he is someone else, a Mr. Jones. She soon finds out that isn't the case but feels hurt and betrayed.

Kane is a selfish and very superstitious. He believes that a curse was place

I am a huge fan of Christie Ridgway. She has that certain way of luring you into her stories and falling in love with her characters. Once again, she captured my full-on attention with Me and Mr. Jones. I may have even stayed up later than I should just so I could finish the story--it was THAT good.

I love the whole being stood up at the alter thing that set the foundation for the story. And Audra and Kane are definitely characters that you can't help but love. Everything happened in slow motion

Ridgway snags you very quickly with this one. The two characters meet when Audra opens the door to the Bungalow she's staying in. She has been staying there since her fiance stood her up on their wedding day. She is still wearing part of her wedding dress with a pair of sweats. Kane has come to "replace her light bulbs". (He was actually there to replace her light bulbs, but I couldn't resist). Kane actually runs the hotel, but has on maintenance coveralls with the name of Jones on them. I wish ...more

This author writes such fun, sexy, and steamy stories! And she just makes them up! This series is a fun summer beach read kind of book. No intense scenes, no violence, just some seriously hot and romantic things happening!

This second story is about the jilted bride that ran away in the first story of the Heartbreak Hotel series. Audra eventually left her room and realized how horrible she looked. The hot repair guy who came to fix some minor things was really the billionaire owner/manager who ju

The Hathaway resort at Dragonfly Beach has a reputation as a place where those with broken hearts go to heal. This story is about Audra, a bride jilted at the altar and Kane, the resort manager. Audra has spent her life doing what was expected of her – always. Kane, certain he is as selfish as his parents, is convinced he is not a long-term relationship kind of guy. In fact, his last girlfriend cursed him publicly saying he was doomed to be alone forever. Oh, Kane is also very superstitious. Aud ...more

Me and Mr. Jones had kept the magic of Heartbreak Hotel alive in this book 2 of the series. The Hathaway is known to help get over heartbreak and in this one it's no different for Audra. You meet her a little in book 1 but don't worry you wont be lost if you haven't read it yet. Audra is left at the alter and in hiding from everything. Last thing she was expecting was feeling attracted to anyone. Once Kane enters and those sparks start to build. Kane is still opposed to love and highly superstit ...more

Audra was to be married at this resort, but her fiancé had other ideas. Now Audra won’t leave her hotel room. Audra calls for a maintenance man to come fix something in her room and she is intrigued by him. Kane lied to Audra about who he really is. He loved who he is with Audra without her really knowing what he did for a living. I could understand why he did this. Some women maybe after who he is and what he can provide them.

This is the second the Heartbeak Hotel series. It's a totally fun and light hearted comedy. If you are looking for something easy breezy, you've hit the nail on the head with one. This book centers around Audra, the recently jilted almost bride and Kane the half-self confirmed, half cursed bachelor. It's pretty amusing to see Kane pull Audra out of her post almost wedding funk and discover her inner bad girl. While Audra helps Kane navigate

Kane is concerned about his guest. When a guy comes to fix her maintenance issue, she has no idea it is really the guy in charge. Their relationship comes as a surprise to both of them. As they spend more time together they each start to find their true self too. I enjoyed their story and how their friendship evolved into more ...more

Audra blossomed back to her confident self over the course of the book – from a jilted bride holed up in her hotel room to a woman figuring out the next steps in her life. Kane, cursed from a former girlfriend, is convinced that he is not made for love. However, the draw to Audra brings to mind magnetics who can’t resist the pull.

This is the first book of this series that I have read. It can be a stand alone. You see characters that were in the previous book, but you do not feel as if you missed something by skipping that book. That being said I am going to go read that one now :) I also like the glimpses we had at the other characters that hinted at what could happen in the future books.
This was a perfect summer beach read. There were more sexy times that I expected, but yet the storyline and the character development
