The Night Porter (Night Porter #1) by Sue Brown
I picked this up at the library, and I didn’t have a clue what it was about, but I needed an N for my A-Z Title Challenge and I usually click the like button on Sue Brown’s Facebook posts so I know her name LOL. I’ve read other stories by her too, so it felt like a safe bet.
I didn’t know this story didn’t have a HEA, my fault, I could’ve investigated instead of just starting to read. Now, I don’t need a HEA to like a story, but I was a bit stunned when the end came LOL.
There is a sequel, and I assume the HEA will come in that one.
Max is a night porter in a hotel where Robert comes to live the last days before his wedding. They instantly connect and the attraction is mutual. One late night leads to another, they end up far closer than they should, but then the wedding day comes.
I was left with a ‘but… No!’
Both Max and Robert are likeable characters and I was rooting for them, but, alas…
I couldn’t find this book in any of the online retailers but check your library if you want to read it or wait for a bit. It was originally published by Dreamspinner so my guess Ms Brown has pulled it. She might publish it again, maybe.
The first time Max lays eyes on Robert Armitage, he knows exactly what he wants to happen. Tall, broad, and gorgeous, Robert pushes all his buttons. When Robert asks Max to show him around town, the attraction between them only intensifies. But Max is just a night porter and Robert a guest at his hotel before his wedding, and Max knows even as they sleep together that in the morning he’ll have to send the groom on his way.
