It’s New Year’s Eve and Natalie has a rare night off from her shifts at the hospital. Determined to have fun with friends, she stops at a local store for provisions.

There, amongst the craft beer and pork rinds, she comes face to face with her high school boyfriend, Brennan McLean. He’s a rockstar. She’s a nurse. To say life led them in different directions would be putting it mildly. Still, time hasn’t lessened the electric chemistry between them. By the end of the night more was dropping than just the ball.

Convincing herself she could have fun without getting attached, Natalie treats herself to a weekend tangled in the sheets with him. But that lie she told herself pops faster than champagne bubbles.

With media rumors swirling around Brennan, can the pair find a way to make their unlikely relationship work? Or will Natalie’s resolution not to get her heart broken meet a painful end?

Welcome to my stop on the Release Blitz for A Date for Midnight by Heidi McLaughlin  and L.P. Dover.

Natalie’s New Year’s resolution is “to make better choices”. After her divorce, she threw herself into her work and didn’t have time for a social life, but her best friend, Emerson, has other plans for her.  So, Natalie is finally taking a night off as an ER nurse and attending Emerson’s New Year’s Eve party which includes meeting a blind date.  However, Natalie runs into her old high school boyfriend, Brennan McLean, who is now a superstar singer, and all the feelings she had for him years ago have resurfaced. Their meeting turns into a few days of hot sex until Brennan has to go back to California. Did she just make another bad choice?

On his way to a party, Brennan runs into Natalie. The beautiful girl he fell for in high school is now a beautiful woman and he realizes his feelings haven’t changed for her. It is so refreshing to be with someone who knows him as a real person and not as a famous musician. But he has to return to California and he can’t stop thinking of her. 

This novella is a good start to a promising series. Brennan and Natalie are a great couple, but have their lives changed too much?  Will Natalie be able to deal with Brennan’s showy life with promotions including fake girlfriends? Will Brennan be able to concentrate on his next album when all he thinks about is Natalie?  If you enjoy romance reunited, give this one a try.

Thank you to Ms. McLaughlin and Ms. Dover for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
