ARC Review: Yours at Midnight by Robin Bielman

When this book first came to my attention I found myself dying to read it. I'm a huge fan of tropes where the characters already know each other and this one and once I learned that not only were the hero and heroine longtime neighbors who once had a one night stand and that one of them had always been in love with the other, I quickly jumped at the chance to read. Oh my goodness this book did not disappoint. I know some people had a few issues with the heroines antics but I loved the book completely and I can't wait to read more from Robin Bielman.

Lyric and Quinn grew up together living next door to one another and weren't always on the friendliest of terms. Where Lyric gravitated to Quinn's brother and fancied herself in love with him, Quinn always felt like the odd man out who was secretly in love with Lyric. Rather than express his true feelings towards Lyric he acted as all guys do while faced with that situation, he teased her mercifully which prevented Lyric from ever really wanting to get to know Quinn.

When tragedy strikes and Quinn's brother is killed in a car accident it leaves both Quinn and Lyric reeling. When a moment of shared grief between the two becomes so much more intense than either ever expected, it finds Quinn running from the one thing he's always wanted.

It's been four years since Lyric has laid eyes on Quinn. After the one night they spent together she doesn't really know how she feels about him. On the one hand Quinn is the one person she thought she always hated. But on the other, she is beginning to release that the feelings he invokes are as far away from hate as possible. The more time she spends with him the more evident it is that it's not hate she's feeling. If only her feelings for Quinn were the only thing that Lyric had to worry about. Lyric has a secret that if Quinn finds out about, he might just hate her for.

I loved the relationship between these two. The sparks and chemistry these two have is evident to everyone but them. Somehow they are both blind to the fact that they are in love with one another. I loved watching them interact with one another.

Quinn has spent his life feeling like he was living in the shadow of his brother, never feeling good enough about himself especially when it came to Lyric. Oh how my heart broke for him. He has so much pain and guilt deep inside and he's struggling with it all. I enjoyed watching him let it all go and accept that he isn't second best.

I really enjoyed this book and I can't wait to read more from Robin Bielman.
