Publisher's Summary

She’s a single mom holding on to her job. He’s a career man focused on his business. Can they put the past behind them in order to build a future together? 

When Filipe Romano arrives at the SoliMar beach resort, his newest acquisition, he plans to complete renovations quickly before moving on to his next property. But a stumbling block arises when he discovers Celeste, the sister of his deceased best friend, is an employee at the resort’s aquarium, which he intends to sell. To complicate matters more, he has unresolved feelings for Celeste and blames himself for the accident that killed her brother.  

Celeste Ferreira, a stressed single mom, needs a miracle. Without any means to start over, she clings to the job she loves as aquarist at the SoliMar Aquarium. After she discovers the new owner is Filipe, an old family friend, their history makes it hard for Celeste to trust him, especially with her position in peril. 

Though closing down the aquarium makes good financial sense, Filipe finds himself reluctant to disappoint Celeste and decides to help her with the repairs for the upcoming inspection. But is working side by side enough to forget the past and build a new future, or is the pain between them too deep to move on? 

The Romano Family series follows the stories of the Romano cousins of northern Portugal as they find love and their happily-ever-afters. Each book may be heard as a stand-alone.

Sweet and Swoony!

I have been so excited for this story, all the way back to when Lucinda Whitney sent out a teaser in her newsletter. I read it and when I came to the end of the teaser I couldn't help but think how I was already in love with Celeste and Filipe. I probably don't need to say how excited I was when I finally was able to read and listen to it. I've actually been waiting for Filipe's story much longer than the last couple months. He is part of the wonderful Romano family that are featured in this series. If you haven't read any of them, can I just very kindly (and maybe a bit emphatically) nudge you to do so. You can read/listen to them as stand alone novels but if you have the time I would highly recommend starting at the beginning. They continue to get better and better. The writing in each book is done very well but I think part of the getting better for me is that I have become more invested in this family as I have come to know them individually and as a whole. I love their traditions and their love and care for each other. I love stories that showcase families, hence my love for this series. I don't know if I could for sure tell you which book is my favorite but this one is definitely up there. They're all so good and unique for the different characters that I have fallen in love with all of them.

I loved the second chance trope for this story. Especially when Celeste and Filipe finally realize who each other are. Be still my heart (it might have pitter patted a few times throughout the book). Filipe Romano is, in my opinion, the epitome of a perfect gentleman. If you've read the book in this series, Love Me At Sunset, then you've met Filipe and have a little bit of knowledge of his story and character. If you haven't you're definitely in for a treat. Anytime he thought of Celeste, he was always searching for ways to care for her, to show her that she mattered to him, even if she would only allow friendship between them.

I just loved the tender friendship and romance between Celeste and Filipe. They compliment each other as characters. Add into that relationship her son, Lucas, and the dynamics of their relationship were even better. And can I just add in my thoughts about that cover? It is absolutely stunning! It fits the title and a certain scene so perfectly! I love it! If I were to nominate a book by its cover alone, this one would win hands down for me!

I haven't really mentioned half the things I wanted to in this review but I think I've done a good job of conveying my love for this book. This one is one I highly recommend. The setting in Portugal, at an aquarium added such a fun dynamic to the story. There are plenty of great surprises throughout the book. There's humor and tender moments. Heartache and sweet moments of healing. Definitely plenty of swoony moments as well. Grab a copy and dive in!

Content: Clean. Sweet and swoony kisses but nothing further.

Happy Listening!!!

Sweetly romantic

Celeste and Filipe have a history. When Celeste encounters Filipe years later as the absentee owner of the aquarium where she works, she struggles to deal with him. Filipe has loved Celeste a long time and he shows that love by how he cares for her as the book progresses. I think one of the nicest gestures in a sweet romance is a character taking care of the other party when sick. I guess that represents a spoiler for the book, but it shows a kind and caring heart.
I love how Celeste and Filipe are able to work through their past and their differences to form a strong bond.
The narrator does a great job.
I received an audiobook code from the author at no cost. My opinions are my own.

Sweet and heartwarming

Kiss Me at Midnight is a sweet and heartwarming audiobook, brightened by a vivid cast of characters. In particular, I loved the personality and the interpretation of Lucas, the young protagonist. Lucas dominates the first part of the story, where the other personages are a little subdued, and keeps his vividness in the second part, where the narration's intensity increases. What remains after listening to Kiss Me at Midnight is a gleeful and warm sense of enjoyment and the satisfaction left by an engaging and entertaining story.

Great Sweet Read

Another fantastic Romano family story. I always love getting more of them, they're such a tight knit caring family. I often don't care for kids in books but I actually really liked Lucas, he was smart and absolutely adorable. I loved watching Filipe and Celeste get their second chance.
I love the story and it's written beautifully. The narration is fantastic. Highly recommend

Another Great Romano Story

This is one of my favorite Romano family stories. Celeste and Filipe were friends when they were younger but Filipe disappeared after a family tragedy. They happen to meet again and in the end done their HEA.

4.5!

I adore this series...it’s clean and sweet with vibrant characters. This is a stand alone, but I love ‘visiting’ with characters within the series. Kiss Me at Midnight is well written with a great flow. The narrator is fabulous!

Wonderful, clean romance

Story: (5 stars)

These Romano Family stories are wonderfully romantic and there are believable obstacles and reasons for angst. Ms. Whitney doesn’t drag out the angst, for which I am grateful.

The characters have history, so no insta-love.

Narration: (4.5 stars)

I love listening to Ms. Conlon read. She had a smooth voice and the Portuguese accent sounds real. He make voices sound male and her female voices are also good. She reads at a good speed with very good expression and intonations. This is the 4th or 5th book I’ve listened to that is read by her and I have yet to grow tired of her voice.

Great simple romance

I loved this story. It is a clean romance with no drama. Although I enjoy the standard romance story line of meet the guy, fall in love, have a misunderstanding and fall out, then make up for a brilliant ending, it was great to just have the fall in love story without the drama.
Well written and narrated.
