Welcome to the famed resort, The Hathaway at Dragonfly Beach, where newlyweds come to honeymoon, where anniversary couples celebrate milestones, and where broken hearts find a place to heal.
Jilted bride Audra Montgomery wants to reset her life at the famed resort, The Hathaway at Dragonfly Beach. A good girl for far too long, Audra has penned a list of must-do experiences she’s sure will change her. When the hotel’s maintenance guy, a “Mr. Jones,” knocks on her door, she wonders if the sexy handyman might just come in handy when enacting some of the spicier items on her agenda.
Kane Hathaway, general manager of the resort, didn’t set out to deceive his guest when he performed a minor repair. But it’s freeing to imagine life without the responsibilities of the family business. Then there’s the whole “Heartbreak Hotel” designation—cynical Kane doesn’t believe for a minute that a stay on site can heal the wounds left by bad romance. But every moment in Audra’s company sparkles with magic—can this be love?
Me and Mr. Jones is book two in the Heartbreak Hotel series and is a STANDALONE.
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!
The Hathaway, otherwise known as Heartbreak Hotel, is set in Santa Barbara and it is rumored that guests with broken hearts heal there and may find love again. Audra and her BFF, Lilly, who we met in the first book, retreat to Dragonfly Beach to recover after Audra was jilted at the author via text message by her no-good fiancé, Jacob.
Broken-hearted, Audra never leaves her room, in fact, doesn’t open the drapes or even take her wedding dress off until the day she meets Mr. Jones, the maintenance man. What she doesn’t know is that it’s a case of mistaken identity. Mr. Jones is none other than the General Manager of the resort, Kane Hathaway, confirmed bachelor who has convinced himself and most of the world that he is not cut out for long-term and is destined to be alone. Mr. Jones convinces Audra to venture back into the land of the living, rather than remain a Zombie Bride.
The chemistry between Audra and Kane is sizzling. I found myself fanning my cheeks throughout the book. I had several laugh out loud moments at the banter between them.
I thoroughly enjoyed being re-introduced to the characters from book one, and even though they took a sideline, they were every bit as lively as I remembered.
This is an absolute must-read for those of you who enjoy a good HEA!
