Another romance for the over 40.
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 crusty 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.
Sweet cheese, don't let it be...
As a former rock star,
I once had it all. Fame. Fortune. Females.
Except for the one thing I wanted most.
Then I lost everything.
I fix cars now and restore other people's dreams.
I just want to be somebody's someone.
And there's a certain woman with captivating eyes
who might be the more I’m looking for.
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?

If you loved Tommy Carrigan in After Care meet his best friend and former drummer, Hank, as he discovers romance in his forties.
Book 2 of the silver fox, former rock stars can be read as a standalone.
I absolutely enjoyed After Care by L.B. Dunbar, an over-forty romance. So, when I heard she was doing another over-forty story, I could not wait to get my hands on it! In Midlife Crisis we get the story of Hank, Tommy’s former drummer, and Midge Everette, however, this is a standalone romance and can be read as such. Though I highly recommend reading After Care because it was also a great read!
Midge is a single mom who puts her children first. She is divorced and though her three sons are her world, she gets lonely. She always ensures her sons have everything they need but knows it would be great to have someone to lean on as well. I loved how honest and caring she was.
Hank Paige once had it all and lived on top of the world, but that was a long time ago. Now he spends his days fixing cars. But he longs to find someone to share his life, but he also has some heavy baggage he carries around. Can he learn to truly open his heart again before it’s too late?
What I love about these stories, is that even though one person was once famous, they face real problems and issues other over forty-year-olds do as well. I also loved how both had family who supported them no matter what. It was also fun to see old friends again!
Hank and Midge were great together and had amazing chemistry. Their journey was not an easy one, but I was lost in their story from start to end. This was such a heartwarming story about second chances, love and family. A great read and one I would recommend.
