Married at Midnight
(This review is based on the ARC provided by the publisher via Net Galley)
This was a second chance romance novel which had a good story, but nothing unique or special. It was my first time reading a novel by Gerri Russell and I found that I really enjoyed her writing and the dual point of view style of writing because it helped the reader understand the characters. I enjoyed Connor's character because he was intelligent and understood his flaws and he made the effort to change it. At points I felt Ellie's character very boring and she always seemed to feel sorry for herself. The chemistry between Connor and Ellie was good, but it could have been better. I found that I wasn't able to fully understand their decision to break up the first time and end up hating each other, so that was a bit confusing for me. I enjoyed the addition of the meddling Elvis impersonaters because they reminded me of Melody Anne's books. Overall an okay second chance romance novel.
