She’s a starlet with secrets. He makes scandals go away. Together, they’ll make sparks fly…

Midnight Drake’s squeaky clean reputation has suddenly taken a nosedive. She’s horrified after she wakes up naked from a drugged stupor, but the worst is yet to come. She just found three sex videos on her phone of a night she can't remember. Midnight wonders if her promising new career will go up in smoke …

Harrison Kirkland cleans up Hollywood’s sordid messes for a living, and he’s never met a scandal he couldn’t contain. But when he’s assigned to fix the sultry Midnight’s problems, he never expected to get dragged in after her…

Behind Midnight’s diva exterior, Harrison discovers a mysterious woman with a web of secrets he can’t untangle. The deeper he’s pulled into her world, the stronger his desire for her grows, but can he handle the truth about her past? If he’s not careful, the next heart that’ll need fixing… will be his…

Craving Midnight is a red-carpet ready contemporary romance novel. If you like steamy chemistry, flawed characters with compelling secrets, then you’ll love A.M. Hargrove’s pulse-pounding story.

Craving Midnight made a big impact on me right from the opening chapters! Midnight went through something that was so dreadful, that it rocked me to the core. However, Midnight is a strong woman and had endured so much that she pulled through with the help of a team of people who help celebrities when their career is put into jeopardy.

Midnight was a tough cookie to get to know. She kept all of her secrets close and has never let anyone in before. She appeared to be an up and coming actress, but she did a lot of things she wasn't proud of to get where she was today. She found a connection with Harrison Kirkland, and he was able to get under her skin and he eventually was able to hear all of Midnight's nightmares.

I really loved Harrison! He was passionate about his work and seemed to fix the lives of all the people who surround him. He wasn't looking for love, but Midnight affected him like no one before. Harrison and Midnight were amazing together; she was able to show her softer side and Harrison was all dominate in bed. It was just hard for Midnight to expose her past and the demons that she carried with her.

A.M. Hargrove is an author I've come to love. She writes novels that touch me in some way and leaves my heart aching for more. Midnight's story wasn't easy, however she was strong enough to pull through and was a better person in the end. I did feel that this story was a little rushed, and some threads wrapped up too easily, where other parts of the story dragged out a little too much. It was still a fantastic read that will remain fresh in my mind for a while to come.

Here are a couple of quotes that made an impact on me.

She’s put disorder into my orderly life and that definitely is disturbing.

Kindle Arc Loc 1973

“Have you ever been in love or in a relationship?”
“Then you were in way deeper than I’ve ever been, no pun intended.” She smirks. Then she turns serious again. “My heart’s only been affected by one thing ever. And it wasn’t a man.”

One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager A. M. Hargrove realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn’t do something soon, it would be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodge ball pro and had über quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head. Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what laptop out the window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone, called her boss, and quit her job. Grinning, she made another call to her hubs and told him of her new adventure (after making sure his heart was beating properly again).

So began A. M. Hargrove’s career as a Naughty and Nice Romance Author.

Her books include Adult, New Adult and Young Adult Romances, including, The Guardians of Vesturon Series (Survival, Resurrection, Determinant, reEmergent, and the novella Beginnings); Dark Waltz and Death Waltz (The Praestani Novels); The Edge Series (Edge of Disaster, Shattered Edge, and Kissing Fire); The Tragic Series (Tragically Flawed and Tragic Desires); Exquisite Betrayal; Dirty Nights: The Novel; and The Hart Brothers Novels (Freeing Her, Freeing Him, and Kestrel).
