Blog Tour & Giveaway: Meet Me at Midnight by Jessica Pennington

Book Blurb:

They have a love-hate relationship with summer.

Sidney and Asher should have clicked. Two star swimmers forced to spend their summers on a lake together sounds like the perfect match. But it’s the same every year—in between cookouts and boat rides and family-imposed bonfires, Sidney and Asher spend the dog days of summer finding the ultimate ways to prank each other. And now, after their senior year, they’re determined to make it the most epic summer yet.

But their plans are thrown in sudden jeopardy when their feud causes their families to be kicked out of their beloved lake houses. Once in their new accommodations, Sidney expects the prank war to continue as usual. But then she gets a note—Meet me at midnight. And Asher has a proposition for her: join forces for one last summer of epic pranks, against a shared enemy—the woman who kicked them out.

Their truce should make things simpler, but six years of tormenting one another isn’t so easy to ignore. Kind of like the undeniable attraction growing between them.

My Review:

5 Out Of 5 Stars

Genre: Heart-Wrenching, Romance, Teen--

Be aware that this review contains copious amounts of fangirling. This is my current favorite read and I feel like I need to force it on everyone so they can experience it too!

I don't know what kind of voodoo magic the author has, but somehow she can create the best kind of sexual tension and steam without even having sex occur in her books. I have read adult romances with actual sex on the pages and yet somehow I found this book to be super steamy just by the stolen looks and gentle, totally PG touches that amped everything up and I basically needed to fan myself. If you want romance that builds, this is the perfect choice.

“What are you majoring in?” I interrupt her, and she looks confused. 

“English, I think. Why? What are you majoring in?”

“Finance.” I shake my head. “You have the brain of a criminal mastermind.” 

She looks at me blankly. “Um. Thanks? I think. ” Her finger pulls a card toward us on the table. “I don’t think they have majors for that, though.”

Oh my gosh, the crazy paranoia between the is about the best thing ever! Even while they call a truce between the crazy shenanigans, they assume the other is out to get them, and the internal commentary is even better than the practical jokes, in my opinion. This book had everything I could have wanted, humor, heart, backstory and a future- and I could not stop the tears and it takes a lot for me to cry! Each book by Jessica becomes my new favorite and this is no exception. She set the bar very high for herself when it comes to my love and I just can;t wait to get more of her stories in my life. 

He’s lucky I’m too claustrophobic— and easily bored— to go to prison, or he’d need to be worried about being out on the open water with me.  

I highly recommend this for anyone who loves YA contemporary, summer reads, over the top pranks and a fun kind of war, and so man emotions! To be perfectly honest, I recommend all her books so save yourself the trouble and buy all three that are out now so you can have a heartwarming binge.
