Never Stay Past Midnight – Mira Lyn Kelly

Never stay past midnight

“Love-’em-and-leave-’em Levi just got loved-and-left!

Everything about Elise was so right that night, until at 11.59 p.m. she got out of his bed, got dressed, and left!

What the…? The tables have turned and Levi realises that he has just met the one woman who leaves him wanting more.

But how will he find her again?  How can he get her back in his life?  And could Bruno the Great Dane be the answer?”

I was lucky enough to win this book from a giveaway run by Mills & Boon.  I admit that I’ve never actually read a Mills & Boon book but I have heard lots about them so I was definitely intrigued.

The prologue was interesting, it was refreshing to see the shoe on the other foot – the woman running out and leaving the man after a passionate evening – this fact alone made it different to other books that I’ve read.

The storyline featured lots of sexual scenes throughout the first half and unfortunately I felt that it kind of overwhelmed this side of the book. The second half contained much more details about Elise and Levi’s pasts and it was only then that I began to feel connected to them – I wish that this information had come sooner.

I loved Bruno the Great Dane, he reminded me of my own big drooly dog and I could totally relate to the madness of taking an oversized dog on a walk (or would that be him taking me?).  The storyline also touched on more sensitive subjects such as Alzheimer’s and alcoholism, I thought that this part was written well and successfully highlighted the effects that these illnesses had on the person’s family.

There were times when I found it a little hard to follow and I would have to go back and reread parts until they made sense, this wasn’t a major problem but it did interrupt my reading on more than one occasion.

This was a quick one-day read which had a few little irritations but was generally enjoyable.

Never Stay Past Midnight can be purchased from The Book DepositoryAmazon or from most good book retailers.
