Midge Everette.

I’m forty-one today.

It’s my birthday,

And I’m crying over burnt toast.

That’s not some euphemism.

Literally, I’m sobbing over stupid bread,

so I call a crisis center.

I just need someone to talk to about life.

Only I recognize the smoky voice of the man on the line.

In the name of all things, don’t let it be…

Hank Paige.

As a former rock star,

I once had it all.

Fame. Fortune. Females.

Except for the one thing I wanted most.

Now, I fix cars and restore other people’s dreams.

I just want to be somebody’s someone.

And there’s a certain woman with captivating eyes,

I want to fulfill my dreams.

For the love of all things, please let it be her…

In the midst of questioning everything,

could love be the resolution to a midlife crisis?

My Review

Midge Everette is an everyday woman, which means that older and younger readers alike will be able to connect with her, because while she may be 41 years old, the trials and tribulations she goes through in her story are situations that could happen to anyone of us, regardless of age. As a 40 year old woman myself, one with two boys of my own and a set of insecurities that come with growing older, I could identify with Midge’s internal musings and the way she handled things while feeling ill at ease with her decisions and actions.

Midge is an all-around amazing woman; her three boys are her life and she never weighs them down with her issues, preferring to allow them to grow up as normal as possible despite their divorced parents. She’s definitely a role model when it comes to parenting and her willingness to do whatever she can for her boys. Despite being divorced for three years, she hasn’t quite figured out how to get back into the dating pool, but that seems to change when a certain sexy and built man draws her in and appears to reciprocate the instantaneous connection she feels throughout her entire body.

Hank Paige has led a difficult life compounded by his rockstar status and his tendencies to indulge; he hit rock bottom over six years ago, and from that day forward, he has challenged himself to be and do better, not only for himself but also for those he loves and for those who need a person who’s seen and done it all and can relate to them because of it. But the one aspect of Hank’s life that he still struggles with seems to control his feelings and his actions when it comes to Midge and his desire for her. 

The supporting characters in Midge and Hank’s lives play such a pivotal role in helping them to move forward as well as coming to terms with everything that has already happened. Because of Midge’s new group of friends, she starts to live again, more than just for her three sons, which is exactly what she needs to move forward and be happy again with where she is at in her life, regardless of her age, her body shape, or any other insecurity that makes her doubt the amazing woman that she is.

Midlife Crisis centers around Midge and Hank’s journey to find their way beyond their respective pasts and feel confident enough to put their hearts on the line when it comes to exploring their feelings for one another. There are definitely a collection of obstacles, both self-made and created by others, but at the heart of Midge and Hank’s story is the importance of friends and family and the necessity of living for oneself even when others depend on that person.

Older heroes and heroines may not appeal to all romance readers, but, to me, age doesn’t matter if the love story is told thoughtfully and passionately, which is the case in L.B. Dunbar’s romances for the over 40.
