Midnight Kiss By Robyn Carr, Jean Brashear, Victoria Dahl

This book has 3 stories in 1 book by 3 different woman. It was all around an okay book.


Story # 1 - MIDNIGHT CONFESSIONS by Robyn Carr

Series or stand alone: stand alone

Genre: fiction,romance

Reason for reading: Came in the mail

Cover Art: Beautiful small town in the winter!

Blurb: Sunny Archer is anything but sunny after she was left at the alter on New Year's Eve. She's been good and mad for a year now and wants to celebrate the anniversary of her biggest humiliation by herself. Unfortunately for her, her uncle and aunt have other ideas and drag her to the local bar for a New Year's Eve Party. There, she meets Drew who is smitten at first glance. Having sworn off men completely, Sunny brushes off Drew's attempts at friendliness. Drew perseveres and finally gets Sunny to thaw her frozen heart a bit to enjoy a fun New Year's Eve full of possibilities

Thoughts: I though it was going to be a great story about 2 people coming together on a first date oh how truly wrong was I. It was okay story. I felt too much time was spent on recapping on the town folks lives & Sunny & Drew's past failed relationships. It could of been a good story if there wasnt so much baggage!

Story #2 - MIDNIGHT SURRENDER by Jean Brashear

Series or stand alone: stand alone

Genre: fiction,romance

Reason for reading: Came in the mail

Cover Art: Beautiful small town in the winter!

Blurb: Jordan Parrish is a lawyer who loves to party and enjoys her reputation as a man-eater. She uses men like tissues and wants to be a bachelorette forever. To say she has commitment issues would be saying it lightly. Her well-meaning friend attempts to set her up with her husband's co-worker, Will Masterson. They don't quite hit it off while sitting next to each other at Thanksgiving dinner, but Will is bound and determined to get under her skin and show her she is worthy to be loved.

Thoughts: This story was enjoyable but it was a bunch of   romantic stereotypes and clichés.  I never really felt connected to the main character Jordan. They never really talked about her change in feelings so it was just this big change with nothing really leading up to it.  I did enjoy watching Will go about seducing this self-proclaimed man-eater. The story was enjoyable enough, just not anything to really set it apart.

Story #3 - MIDNIGHT ASSIGNMENT by Victoria Dahl

Series or stand alone: stand alone

Genre: fiction,romance

Reason for reading: Came in the mail

Cover Art: Beautiful small town in the winter!

Blurb: Noah James and Elise Watson are stuck on a job together again. Neither are excited about it, but not because they don't like each other. Two years ago, they kissed while working together and things went to pieces. Noah even took a job transfer to get away. But today finds them on the same job over the Holidays. Even as they both attempt to avoid the other, they end up reconnecting and sparks fly.

Thoughts: This one was my favorite of the 3 stories in this book. Noah & Elise have a past with each other & have things that need to be sorted out & the author not only touches on their feelings but also shows them working together & with others. It wasnt like all other love stories this was more of a believable one that makes it seem more real life then a story. The author really touched on the passion they had for each other. Im looking forward to reading more by Victoria Dahl.
