Midnight Fantasy

 2 of 5 stars false
After a series of football injuries leave him broken in both body and spirit, former star quarterback Joe Armstrong decides that his life is over. Wanting nothing more than to sit alone with a strong drink, Joe is less than pleased when he receives an unexpected visit from nurse Annabelle Calloway. Finding the golden-haired angel impossible to ignore, Joe reluctantly lets Annabelle into his home.
Although she’s seen her fair share of tough cases, Annabelle isn’t sure how to reach the troubled Joe. But having almost succumbed to depression herself, Annabelle feels an instant connection to her charge. A connection that becomes undeniable. Enveloped by passion and filled with longing, Annabelle will stop at nothing to give Joe a reason to live—and a reason to love.


****NetGalley provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review****
Midnight Fantasy was not a good read for me, it seemed very dated. The idea and plot line were interesting but the execution left a lot to be desired. Annabelle was a very bland heroine and it seemed that she was lacking a real personality. Joe was a selfish hero and I had a hard time finding any redeemable qualities in him. There was no real connection between the two of them, beyond the instant lust they had for each other, there was no connection. I don't know why this couple would stay together; there were certain parts of the book that were cute and funny. This just wasn't a book for me, I did like the writing itself, so I will most likely take a look at her other books.
