Ashley and Ethan were best friends while growing up, until one New Years Eve when Ethan suddenly stopped talking to her. 9 years have passed and they both find themselves on the prowl for a one night stand, not wanting to spend the last night of the year on their own. Running into each other, there is a clear attraction between them, building upon their feelings from their youth, and they agree to just one night, no strings. And then they agree to bowling, a walk and a few more nights and before they know it they are having thoughts about each other that they promised they wouldn't.
I didn't put this book down once I started it! There's nothing unpredictable about it really, two old friends promised themselves it was just sex, but actually love each other, and the outcome was always obvious. But sometimes that is exactly what you need to read! Or at least for me anyway. Typical girl I'm really quite a romantic at heart, and secretly, or not so secretly really, would want to be swept of my feet by the one who got away (have to figure out who that is first though!)
The characters in Kiss Me at Midnight were believable, and I liked that their goals were clear. As well as the fact that they say one thing, but in reality their feelings on the subject go much, much deeper than that. It made the characters well rounded. But they also stuck to their guns, particularly Ethan, and acted in character even when they were trying to break from their normal habits.
I really enjoyed Kiss Me at Midnight, there was the right balance of drama and romance in it for me! Also, kind of found it fitting that I read it on New Years Day!

Her New Year’s resolution was seduction…
Doctor Ashley Hanes has one mission and one mission only—end her annoyingly long dry streak and ring in the New Year with a bang. Literally. When her long lost and oh-so-sexy ex-best friend, Ethan Pierce, shows up as if he hadn’t broken her heart all those years ago, suddenly she doesn’t want to bring home just any man. She wants Ethan.
What should have been one night of blow-your-mind make-up sex quickly turns into another. And another.
Before long, Ashley thinks maybe she and Ethan should reunite for good. If only the elusive bachelor will stop running from his tortured past and trust a future in Ashley’s arms…
