Riley in the Morning (Loveswept #115)
by Sandra Brown (Goodreads Author)
One of romance’s best-loved authors, Sandra Brown creates love stories whose “larger-than-life heroes and heroines make you believe all the warm, wonderful, wild things in life” (Rendezvous). Now the New York Times bestselling author delivers a poignant, funny, and irresistibly sensual novel about one night in the life of a man and a woman that will change their future forever.
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 devastatingly 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.
From the Paperback edition.

Gramedia: Terkadang menjadi orang yang berada di belakang layar memang tidak menyenangkan, seringkali terlupakan.Dan perasaan semacam itulah yang membuat Brin akhirnya memutuskan untuk meninggalkan suami yang sangat di cintainya.Terkadang sikap rendah hati di perlukan hanya, kadang kala membuat orang lupa diri, tidak mampu mengkoreksi diri sendiri, sehingga tidak merasa telah menyakiti hati orang yang paling di cintainya.Begitulah perasaan Riley, rasa terluka dan di khianati tidak membuat dia berusaha untuk mencari tahu apa penyebab istrinya, Brin melarikan diri.Dalam 1 malam dengan banyak kejadian, akhirnya mereka mampu menemukan penyelesaian terbaik dalam hidup mereka, dan kembali kumpul bersama.
Claudia: I won this book on tape from First Reads. Listening to this story reminded me how much I used to enjoy books on tape. This book was an ok book for me. Riley is the host of a morning talk show, and producer is his wife Brin. She leaves him, and I sure did want to know why? So one night he shows up at her door to find out.
Narisha: I won this book from first reads. This was the first Sandra Brown book that I have read. The book is short slightly over five hours on audio book. The story is a typical romantic story. Brin leaves her husband for no reason or so it seems at the end of the book the truth is revealed and we get a happy ending. I enjoyed this book for the romance factor and will be looking to read more of Sandra Browns novels.
Misty: This really wasn't one of my favorite Sandra Brown books that I've read so far, but it wasn't bad either. I liked the story okay, so I'm giving it 3 stars.
Diah: Kayaknya ini satu-satunya tulisan Sandra Brown yang tokoh2xnya udah merit. Dan sebetulnya saya suka banget nih tema begini. Tapi kok bener2x cuma adegan satu malem gitu sih? Males banget. :p
Rachel: Audiobook. Couldn't finish it. The narrator was horrible and the story was severely lacking. I never connected with the characters, in fact I actually couldn't stand them.
Darcy: This is another rare book that I made it to the end and didn't like it. Part of the reason why I didn't care for this one was the narrator, she tried to do that sexy breathless voice that is just bad!! I would have given it up, but I wanted to know what the reason was Brin left Riley and we weren't told until the last disc, and at that point I figured I might as well finish this one. This is one of the author's older books so there were cliche's abound and some things that did make me laugh, like the reference to not missing Dallas on tv.
Overall this was a very predictable story, with blah characters that just isn't worth your time.
Sarah: I'm pretty sure I've read this book before. Besides the cover and the title appearing familiar, I have this image of Riley as a mule-headed, incorrigible, utterly charming and demanding character who always gets what he wants. It's hard to forget a character like that, so yes, I guess I have read this book before and, judging by the fact that I've remembered it after all these years, I can safely say that it is a memorable one. But then, aren't all Sandra Brown novels memorable?
I'm a huge Sandra Brown fan and my first romance novel was a Sandra Brown novel. Since then, and even though I've sworn off reading romance novels in an attempt to get more serious reading done, I make it a point to grab every new Sandra Brown novel that hits the shelves at my local library. Her characters have the ability to make your heart ache and your knees go weak. The end of every novel leaves you with a slight smile and this warm, fuzzy and utterly delightful sensation
