Kiss Me At Midnight by Lucinda Whitney
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?
I love the Romano Family and all their stories so this one was no exception! I loved this story of second chance love for Filipe Romano and didn't want to put it down. Filipe is getting ready to open his beach resort and wants to finalize the selling of the aquarium when... there she was Celeste the girl he walked away from years ago. Celeste and Filipe run into each other occasionally and easily fell back into a friendship thanks to her son Lucas. Filipe is just what Lucas needs and I love their connection. The relationship that develops was a connection that was lost many years ago but the love never was. Oooo lala there were some butterflies in your stomach kisses. This was such a sweet story of hope, forgiveness and love. I loved the book and I loved how it ended!
