Book Description

Feb. 15 2002
Named "The Most Outstanding Writer of Sensual Romance" by Romantic Times Magazine, Linda Lael Miller never disappoints. In Used-to-Be Lovers, she delivers a highly emotional story of a love that withstands all tests.

Sharon Harrison and Tony Morelli were never able to control the powerful chemistry between them. It led first to heart-stopping passion, then to marriage and children. They thought they had it all, but under pressure their happy home became an explosive battleground.

Even divorce, however, can't completely separate them. Spending alternate days in their home with their children, they have an unorthodox arrangement that keeps them in close contact. And keeps the desire alive . . .

3.0 out of 5 stars Not one of her best but not one of her worst either Sept. 21 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I like Linda Howard. She's a great writer and usually I like her books and I enjoy the characters. This one however was a so so. It was stale at times and I didn't exactly enjoy the fact that Tony was so cruel. No wonder Sharon left him. I didn't like the fact that they slept together got into a fight Sharon cried then they slept together again. That part got stale and wasn't enjoyable to read. I didn't like the fact that even though Brianna was Tony's first child with another wife(who died) and Sharon raised him, he didn't exactly have any right to shout at Sharon and say that Brianna was only his daughter. If you're a first time Linda Howard and unsure of which book to read, I'd reccommend Mr. Perfect(5 stars; her best yet!!), Open Season(5 stars;her best along wit Mr. Perfect), and Duncan's bride if you're into that mail order bride thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightful second chances -- Highly recommended March 24 2002
By C. Penn
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sharon Harrison and Tony Morelli married after a whirlwind courtship. Sharon took Tony's infant daughter to her heart, raising the child as her own just like the son they also share. Unfortunately, Tony did not take the time to mourn his first wife properly before beginning their relationship, a fact that seemed to overshadow their years together. Eleven years and a divorce later, only joint custody keeps them bound in an unorthodox custody arrangement that insures close contact.
Currently, Tony heads a thriving family owned construction firm. His success makes Sharon feel the slow growth of her lingerie store Teddy Bares even more. Tony had never understood her need for independence and the success of her store. Sharon never acknowledged the difficulty his first wife's shadow presented. Despite their divorce, these emotional issues and more still overshadow their lives as they work together to raise their children.
Linda Lael Miller pens a beautiful tale of second chances in USED-TO-BE LOVERS. Miller has a gift for creating a powerful, character driven romance complete with wonderful children and well-meaning family members. USED-TO-BE LOVERS explores the delicate balance of love and communication, and what happens when communication fails. With a divorce and child-rearing issues creating turmoil, their struggles to balance their emotions and their desires becomes quite entertaining as they confront daily living issues such as spoiled shopping trips and broken plumbing. While Sharon and Tony obviously still love one another, their inability to risk vulnerability allows them both to make foolish choices. A tender exploration of rekindled love, USED-TO-LOVERS comes highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different! Dec 20 1996
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Although I enjoyed the book, I became frustrated with Sharon. She finds it easier to walk away than fight for what she wants. Tony, on the hand, was WOW! Loved the setting for the book. Even the kids were great

1.0 out of 5 stars This is a rewrite Nov. 16 2013
By Patricia Farren - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased this and read 3 lines before realizing I read it a few years ago. Wish Amazon would make a note that this is
a rewrite and not a new release. I cancelled off my Kindle.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ugh. Depressing. June 29 2000
By Shannon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Linda Lael Miller's hero, Tony, was wasted in this novella. The plot is thin. Tony and Sharon get divorced after several years of happy marriage. The catalyst is Sharon's opening of her dream business, a lingerie shop. Tony is not supportive of her, for reasons of his own. Apparently, this is the last straw. Sharon serves him with divorce papers unexpectedly, and they of course are divorced quickly.
This is so unrealistic, it's hard to even read the book. It's plausible enough that a couple can be married for several years and never learn to communicate, or never be open about their feelings. It's not realistic that she would serve him with divorce papers without trying to resolve the problem. And it's not realistic that he'd just accept the divorce, which he vocally doesn't want, without trying to find out what's wrong. There are such things as marriage counselors or even weekend retreats to get at the heart of the problem. I can't believe a couple would toss everything aside without trying something like this.
All of this makes it hard to believe that a single weekend together (after a miserable novel full of bickering and self pity) magically accomplishes the reunion and resolution of their problems. Why didn't they just talk sooner?
Tony was likable, Sharon was pathetic. I also got disgusted at the token kids Miller included in the book. At one point, Sharon takes off driving to clear her mind and ends up hours away - and it's her turn for custody! Come on. The last straw is when they remarry, the kids aren't even in the wedding! The kids don't even know until they see the ring on their finger! During the novel, Sharon is planning a trip to Paris, and she never gives the kids a contact number for her. At one point during the novel, she leaves the kids with Tony (his turn) and realizes later she forgot to tell them goodbye.
I spent the book feeling sorry for the kids, and feeling disgusted with the characters. And then you end the book and you're depressed from reading 100 pages of bickering and walking away!
This is a total waste of time.

I always enjoy Miller's books. She always makes them interesting with just enough mystery to keep you reading. Really enjoyable.
