Book Review: Need Your Midnights
Blake Stuntz, pro hockey player, has been having the time of his life being single. So when he announces at dinner with friends he is ready to settle down, it rocks Lucy’s world, his best friend he misses like crazy who has given him the cold shoulder for years.
Lucy Campbell, ER nurse, had her heart broken by her best friend Blake, when they drunkenly hooked up and he went on like it never happened. After he drops that news at dinner, she impulsively jumps into a relationship to prove a point. How long can Lucy pretend with Wyatt before her feelings for Blake shine through?
When their friend group takes a trip together Blake tells Lucy “I am sorry for being an idiot and treating you like you weren’t… aren’t one of the most important people in my life.”
After the trip, at the weekly family dinner, tension rises as Wyatt pieces together who Lucy has lingering feelings for, and that he is sitting right at the table with them.
Will these two ever find a way back to each other? Or does the bad blood run too deep?
Read Need Your Midnights to find out.
I thought this was a sweet romantic book. Both Lucy and Blake are a bit stubborn. Neither wanted to admit that their still had feelings for each other and so no one made the first move. It was a frustrating to watch. I felt bad for Lucy's current boyfriend as she knew she did not want to be with him, but she would not break it off with him right away.
While this story may be about Blake and Lucy, I have to admit that I really liked their friends. They were what really made this book entertaining for me. Yes, they did choose sides and it was with Lucy. They made sure Blake was aware of it and would not mess up this time around.
Readers who like their romance on the sweeter side with lighthearted humor, may want to pick up a copy of this book.
