I love the character, Riley; he comes off as a romantic yet tough on the outside. The interaction between him and Brin is funny. I highly recommend this book.

I actually started this book but it wasn't my cup of tea so I can't honestly write any kind of review. But, from what I understand, it is pretty much standard Sandra Brown so if you like her books here is another one for you.

from the back cover " Television producer Brin Cassidy was throwing the biggest dinner party of her life. And with everything in utter chaos, who should show up unannounced on her doorstep but her handsome estranged husband, Jon Riley."

This has got to be the worst Sandra Brown book ever. It's like a bad porno movie. A couple who breaks up for really no reason & doesn't speak for 7 months & neither knows why. Then all of a sudden they hook back up again & we relive their entire love life. Also if you are listening to the audio cd, the person who does the voices is very annoying.

Television producer Brin Cassidy was throwing the biggest dinner party of her life. And with everything in utter chaos, who should show up unannounced on her doorstep but her handsome estranged husband, Jon Riley. Brin had not only worked with the popular star of Riley in the Morning, she had fallen in love with and married him. She knew she owed Riley an explanation for why she walked out. But did he have to come on this of all nights?
Temperamental, charismatic, and devastingly blue-eyed, Riley was a man who knew what he wanted, and he wasn't leaving until he got it. But the sensuous and strong-willed beauty he still called his wife was every bit his match. From dusk until dawn the two will experience a second honeymoon of passion, seduction, and deep revelation that will determine if there is any future for Riley in the morning.

This story started out with Riley and it was Riley all the way through. We went from his sudden appearance at the birthday party she was giving for a big shot (and after being separated for seven months) to his attempted reconciliation, all the way through the book. Her flash backs of how they met and married were cute. The story was almost typical Brown. First they were lovers, then married, then separated for along time and back together again for a happy ending. It's hard to imagine Riley calling someone Dim Whit and they would adore him. I thought the story had zero plot and not one character really grabs you. Maybe because there aren't many characters except Riley and Brin. This one was published in 1985 and is a reprint. It isn't new writing by Brown. Brown can write nice descriptive love scenes, but the overall story lacks suspense. It doesn't keep you enthused about turning the page because there was no doubt about what would happen at the end.

Brin Cassidy and Jon Riley, two strong willed and determined celebrities, are married but currently estranged. Jon crashes Brin's dinner party and demands to get what he wants -- and find out if there is any future for Riley in the morning.

I'm a sucker for Sandra Brown's original romance novels.

A quick light read, very fun. The love scenes are a little cheesy at times. Wonderful hero - the kind of man you'd love to tear out of the book and toss into your bed. ;)

She had left him seven months earlier without even an explanation. Now, with the caterers bickering over the table setings, the bartender missing in action, the guests about to arrive, and herself barely dressed for the biggest dinner party of her life, who should show up unannounced on her doorstep but her handsome estranged husband, Jon Riley.

As the former producer of the popular morning television program Riley in the Morning, Brin Cassidy had not only worked with the temperamental and charismatic blue-eyed star, she had also fallen in love with and married him. Their tempestuous, passionate affair was the stuff romances were made of. So why did Brin leave him? She knew in her heart that she owed Riley the explanation he had come for. But did he have to come on this of all nights?

The party she was throwing was in honor of Abel Winn, a powerful network executive who was wooing Brin to become the producer of a hot new television show that could skyrocket her to the top of the industry. Riley suspected Winn was also there to woo Brin in another way as well. And he was none too happy about it -- or sublte about his feelings.

But subtlety had never been one of Riley's strong points. He was a man who knew what he wanted, and this devastatingly handsome hunk usually got it. What he wanted tonight was to hear from Brin's own lips why she'd left him. What's more, he wasn't leaving until he got his answer.

From dusk until dawn the two relive their first explosive meeting, their sensuous courtship, their impetuous elopement, and their blissful marriage. It is an emotional and eventful roller coaster of a night filled with passion, seduction, and deep revelation. And only when the final secret is revealed will there be an answer to the question of whether or not there will be a future for Riley in the morning.
