Review: Midnight Valentine

*4.25* I was so glad I read this. I have never read this author before and I’m finding how I like her writing. I was immediately drawn to Megan from the very first scene. It’s refreshing to be compelled to read a book because of the heroine, and although Theo was mysterious, I still felt Megan was the central character. Theo was rude, but it didn’t bother me because I kinda knew he was hiding something. There were clues from the beginning of the book so I wasn’t sure if that was supposed to be the mystery. What I really loved and helped me accept what he was doing was that Megan did not take his crap and yet she gave him enough chances to explain his actions. I find I have a lot of leeway for asshole heroes as long as the heroine is not a doormat.

I really thought this would be a five-star book. There was humor, and a smattering of poignant moments and definitely more than a touch of paranormal. What I didn’t like was the way everything was resolved. There was the revelation, and then an event that was another coincidence and then when that got resolved everything else was explained in the epilogue. I just needed a bit more.
