Loved, loved , loved this 2nd book in this series. It was fun and romantic and made me cry a little. Loved the characters and always like when characters from previous books reappear.

This was a fun, well-written book. Audra is staying at the hotel where Kane is general manager, recovering from being jilted. Kane is avoiding the responsibility of his family name by taking care of a maintenance call. Sparks fly between Audra and Kane and I enjoyed reading about how things went from there. This book can be read as a standalone story, though it is #2 in the Heartbreak Hotel series. I look forward to reading more stories in this series as well as other books by this author.

This is the 2nd book in the Heartbreak Hotel series. Kane Hathaway, proclaimed bachelor, is the general manager for his family's hotel resort. While filling in for a maintenance call, Kane is mistaken for "Mr Jones" by guest Audra Montgomery, almost bride who is emotionally recovering at the resort. No surprises in this romance - expect some steamy sex scenes, but I still enjoyed all of the characters and their banter. (I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion.)

How do you get over being left at the alter? Stay at the Heartbreak Hotel! Audra is hiding/recuperating from her wedding that didn't happen. Everyone is worried about her. Kane is concerned about his guest. When a guy comes to fix her maintenance issue, she has no idea it is really the guy in charge. Their relationship comes as a surprise to both of them. As they spend more time together they each start to find their true self too. I enjoyed their story and how their friendship evolved into more. The story was fun and had a very satisfying happily ever after. I look forward to the next stay at the Heartbreak Hotel! I received an advance copy in return for an honest review.

The Hathaway resort at Dragonfly Beach has a reputation as a place where those with broken hearts go to heal. This story is about Audra, a bride jilted at the altar and Kane, the resort manager. Audra has spent her life doing what was expected of her – always. Kane, certain he is as selfish as his parents, is convinced he is not a long-term relationship kind of guy. In fact, his last girlfriend cursed him publicly saying he was doomed to be alone forever. Oh, Kane is also very superstitious. Audra hasn’t been seen by anyone since her best friend and Maid of Honor, Lilly, checked her in after the aborted wedding. A bored Kane arrives to replace a light bulb for her and the journey begins. This was a very entertaining book and an excellent second installment in the series. I can’t wait for the next one.

Ridgway snags you very quickly with this one. The two characters meet when Audra opens the door to the Bungalow she's staying in. She has been staying there since her fiance stood her up on their wedding day. She is still wearing part of her wedding dress with a pair of sweats. Kane has come to "replace her light bulbs". (He was actually there to replace her light bulbs, but I couldn't resist). Kane actually runs the hotel, but has on maintenance coveralls with the name of Jones on them. I wish a really rich stud would show up at my door to change my light bulbs...hence the quick snag on the part of Ridgway. Me and Mr. Jones if not only funny, but it's really hot! Kate decided to give her back her confidence in and out of the bedroom. He knows it can't go anywhere, because an old girlfriend put a hex on him leaving him alone for the rest of his life. He also has a thing for spilled salt, black cats, walking under ladders and on and on. He's sure that he'll help Audra and she'll go on her merry little way. But maybe he's wrong. Maybe, just maybe she'll break the hex on him...

Can two people who have solemnly sworn off ever falling in love find their soul mates in less than two weeks? It would seem at first that Audra is no where near ready to start a new romance, but the emotional journey that the author takes her and Kane on is so intricately nuanced, so perfectly paced, that it seems entirely natural for their love to blossom almost overnight. If Audra learned one thing from her failed engagement, it’s that she now knows what she doesn’t want. Kane is as different than her ex as any man can be, and his determination to keep believing he is incapable of sustaining a long-term relationship gives her the freedom to explore her bucket lists without any emotional risk. At least that’s what she tells herself. The writing is absolutely brilliant. The secondary characters add depth and continuity to the on-going stories at the Hathaway Resort, known as Heartbreak Hotel, and the author does a superb job of giving the entire setting a feeling of historical authenticity. I especially loved Audra’s confrontation with Tracy – “Sugar” indeed! The final two scenes are just priceless – the cure for the curse, the display in front of the family, the photo on the wall – it all was perfectly on point and a joy to read. The HEA was exactly what it should have been – no doubts left at all. Every bit of this book was exquisitely written, and I’m looking forward to reading the next standalone romance in this series. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

I really loved Me and Mr. Jones by Christie Ridgway, the second book in her Heartbreak Hotel series. After being left at the altar, Audra is brought to The Hathaway at Dragonfly Beach in order to heal and figure out her new future. She has always been the good girl so she writes a list of items she thinks will help her change that image. General Manager of the Hathaway Kane was accustomed to getting his hands dirty making repairs as he ensures the happiness of the guests. Kane was also very superstitious and after being cursed by an ex-girlfriend, he believed he would never find love, let alone be able to love someone. In addition, he was in a rut and unhappy, contemplating a change in his job status. Helping Audra recover and move on, brings lightness to Kane, not just checking off some items on her “must-do” agenda. As Audra gains self-confidence and makes decisions that affect only her, and no one else, will she find that in healing herself that she also heals Kane? Can these two prove that a rebound relationship can be true love? Ms. Ridgway is a wonderful story teller, making me feel as if I was right there. Her books draw me in, making me forget the world around me, not wanting to put the book down until I turned the last page. I highly recommend this book to other readers and look forward to the next book in the series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

I received a free, advanced copy of this book from the publisher. This is my unbiased and voluntary review. In Book 1, Audra Montgomery is left at the alter, by her fiancee, in a text. Her BFF and maid of honor, Lilly Durand, whisks her away to The Hathaway at Dragonfly Beach, recently dubbed Heartbreak Hotel. While Audra locks herself away in her room, in the dark, watching horror shows, Lilly steps out and runs into, Alec, the best man, who is related to the Hathaway family, and is staying there for a fmaily celebration. Book 1 is their story. Kane Hathaway is Alec's cousin, and the general manager of The Hathaway. Kane and his two younger sisters were raised by a great aunt, since their parents were too selfish to care about their children. Alec's parents provided the surrogate parenting. Kane was also mentored by the live-in handyman, who taught him the important things of his life, but was also very superstitious, and that also rubbed off onto Kane. Grown up, he is convinced that he is as selfish as his parents, is not the kind of man who can love and hasn't cared about much of anything in a while. He is at a crossroads, having been offered a job at a chain of eco-resorts in Central America. Before Alec and Lilly went back to LA, he suggested to Kane, that Lilly might need "an intervention". He always makes it clear that he plans to remain relationship free, but there is something about Lilly. Lilly has always been a pleaser, so has made a list of things she wants to do to get out of her comfort zone. And Kane is going to be the man to help her knock the items off her list. Ridgway's books always have a HEA, but it is the journey to get there that is always a pleasure read. The characters are always captivating and the journey appealing.

I really like this series about the Hathaway Hotel in Santa Barbara since I used to live in Santa Barbara. Audra was left at the altar and has been holed up in the hotel for over a week. Kane runs the hotel and filled in for maintenance when he encounters Audra. He really wants to help her get out of the funk that she is in. She is still wearing sweats and part of her wedding dress. After Kane leaves, she realizes what a mess she is. As Kane tries to help Audra, she helps him too. Kane is a non-commitment kind of guy and knows that he isn't nearly good enough for Audra. Audra thinks differently, but doesn't know how to change his mind. As she is trying to get her life together, Kane is wrestling with a decision about his life. Can he be the man she deserves?

What a great sequel to “Our Last First Kiss” (Heartbreak Hotel, #1) by Ms. Ridgway. This story brings us jilted bride Audra Montgomery’s story. Audra and her best friend Lilly Durand were at Dragonfly Beach for Audra’s wedding before the groom bailed at the last minute. Audra has spent the last few weeks in her suite watching British murder mysteries and feeling lost and alone. Enter Kane Hathaway, general manager of The Hathaway resort, who is dealing with his own discontent with his life and future plans. A repair request has come into the resort from Audra’s suite and since maintenance is busy, Kane dons work coveralls (not knowing what repair will be needed) and arrives at her suite. He realizes that Audra is still in shock from being jilted and when she calls him Mr. Jones (the name on the coverall) he does not correct her. They begin to form a friendship, followed by an intense physical attraction and Kane is enjoying the anonymity of being Kane Jones, maintenance man. Of course, that won’t last and he will have to fight to earn Audra’s trust and love. There is romance and humor and amazing sexual energy between them as they deal with her feelings of inadequacy and denial of what her parents have planned for her life and Kane’s uncertainty as to his future business plans. This story is HOT! I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to give an honest review. (by paytonpuppy)

Love is a gift everyone deserves. So why do we take for granted the blessing bestowed upon us? That is why I find The Heartbreak Hotel series so wonderful. Christie Ridgway points out something obvious that we all tend to forget. There is beauty buried within heartache. Love is a leap of faith that comes with flaws, but it's the hope that blossoms from the painful that points us in the right direction. Me and Mr. Jones opens the heart to what love can be. If we never lose heart and keep the faith.
