Hello Everyone! I know this post is super late this week but unfortunately my little guy has been incredibly sick and my work had been equally busy. But, better late than never I am here to share Chasing Midnight with you. Chasing Midnight is a multifaceted story that illustrates small town life in Georgia and the sexual escapades of some of those inhabitants. For my full review keep reading after the book blurb. Thank you all for being patient with me. Also, don’t forget to vote for The Book Maven for blogger of the year here.
Quinn Mason is a young Southern gentleman. Perhaps, gentleman is a stretch for how he lived his earlier years. He was the kid whose life seemed charmed, a popular athlete in high school who won a full scholarship. Life was on track for him until the death of his parents. In one terrible moment, Quinn went from having everything being everything for his young siblings. He left college, and used the money from his parent’s life insurance policy to buy a bar. The bar supported him and the kids, affording him the ability to give for them the life they were robbed of, even sending them to college.
Mhisery Bellemy has returned to Midnight, reluctantly. Her mother died, and she is left to take care of her drunken father, and the family cafe´. She had escaped the small town’s clutches as soon as she was of age, and swore never to return. Now, her siblings have turned to her, leaning heavily on her for help. The woman who got out of town and made a life she loves is now forced, by the bonds of family, and the weight of obligation, to return and give up what she had worked to build for herself.
These two are unlikely to cross paths, but chance throws them into the right place at the right time. Quinn’s brother is the catalyst that brings Mhisery into Quinn’s line of sight. And that’s all it took, one look and he knows he has to have her. The golden boy athlete is now drawn to the tall, tattooed woman stepping off the last bus into town.
Will Quinn ever have the woman he desires, and make her his own, or will she return to the life she loves far away from the small town of Midnight, and Quinn, or will she stay and make a life with the man she loves?
Chasing Midnight tells a story of love, friendship, and sacrifice. This talented duo, Shyloh & Alex Morgan, will rip your heart out and have you falling in love with the inhabitants of this quaint, quirky, town. Welcome to southern seduction, and the town of Midnight, where the Darkest Desires of Dixie become a reality.
Mhisery left Midnight, Ga hoping to never have to return unless on very special occasions. That all changed when her siblings called begging for help with their alcoholic father. She knows that no isn’t an option when they have been dealing with this for so long. So, Mhisery finds herself back in the backward thinking small town of Midnight. When Quinn sees a gorgeous but pissed woman step off the bus in Midnight he can’t take his eyes off her. He feels the uncontrollable need to know her. When he realizes its Mhisery he convinces himself that he needs her no matter what anyone may think.
When Quinn starts pursuing Mhisery with a passion this is like a high school dream come true for Mhisery. Her high school crush wants to be with her and what would hurt with a fling for the small time she will be in town. Unfortunately, Mhisery finds herself being drawn in by Quinn and begins questioning if she wants to stay or go. Can Quinn convince Mhisery to stay in the town she hates or will Mhisery break both their hearts and fly back to the big city?
This was a very entertaining read. The characters are addictive and very relatable. You can definitely find yourself wanting to visit this small town with all these incredibly sexy southern males. This book will give you all kinds of really interesting sexual ideas. I know I was taking mental notes. Unfortunately, regardless of these fantastic traits in this book there were some things that bugged me. It may have just been the writing style but the dialogue felt disjointed in some areas. Also, though most of the side characters were entertaining (Chance, I’m talking about you) I felt some of the side stories weren’t necessary to make the main story move forward. It was almost like intermissions here and there. I don’t mind multifaceted stories with multiple characters tales being told but they have to all help the story move forward and I didn’t always feel that way with these stories. Overall, the steamy scenes, hot males and fun characters made the story worth finishing. I look forward to reading the next book in this series though I hope some of the dialogue issues are smoother this time around.
