When I read the synopsis for Yours at Midnight by Robin Bielman, it sounded like it would be an interesting read, but I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m happy that I decided to read this book, because I really enjoyed it in the end.
Yours at Midnight by Robin Bielman is a heart-warming tale about Lyric and Quinn; two people who are still dealing with the devastating loss of a beloved friend and brother. Throw in romantic feelings, betrayal, and a huge life-changing secret, and you end up with a story and characters that stay with you long after the story has ended. The plot was engaging and moved along at a nice steady pace. Therefore, I was never bored. In fact, I finished the book in one sitting. I thought Lyric and Quinn were well-developed, flawed, and yet very relatable. I really grew to care about these characters.
The romance between Lyric and Quinn was not perfect, but very realistic in that they had to work through some issues and old baggage; there was a lot of tension between the two due to misunderstandings and lack of communication. But it was clear that there was definitely something more there, even though they’d never gotten along for most of their acquaintance. Which made it that more satisfying when they finally fell for each other.
Overall, Yours at Midnight is a short but satisfying read. If you’re interested in a story with likeable characters and a sweet romance, then this is the perfect book for you. (Reviewed by Quiana – The Book Lover)
