Title: Midnights & Mimosas
Series: Drinking #2
Author: R.L. Griffin
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 26, 2019


Is there really such a thing as a quarter life crisis? You bet your ass there is. We should be married, maybe with kids, have a great job - but have a body like you don’t, and have our lives all figured out. There is this existential pressure on women to have it all and do it all. Even if you rebuff this pressure, subconsciously, it’s still there. Middle fingers up to assumptions about where we should all be with our lives at a certain point. Am I right?

I’m Laura Kincaid. The last year of my life has been what dreams are made of, but I think I’ve forgotten my own dreams. My best friend and I traveled across the country with no responsibilities. However, the lack of structure and routine got to me, and now I’m a little lost and I can’t figure out why. I’m a planner, a doer, and a lover of all things sparkly. My quarter life crisis started one night when I realized I was in love. Don’t worry, reading about my hot mess will make you feel better about yours.

I have been waiting a while for another book to release by R.L. Griffin. She nailed it with Midnights & Mimosas! That’s all I have to say about that. She has a way to capture your attention. This book can definitely be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend you read the other two books because it the story goes full circle. You will definitely laugh, a lot, become frustrated and get your heart toyed with, but you will love every moment of it. 

I loved Laura’s character in the other two books, I was excited to finally hear her story. Everyone has a story, boy does she have one. She is Megan’s best friend and her biggest champion. She was laid off her job and decided to pay Megan a visit. That visit changed both of their lives. Laura and Megan went on the adventure of their lives. During this trip, she became Megan’s right hand man. She did everything for her, no questions asked. But I loved how she just took charge of everything as if it was no big deal. Along the way, she lost her way. Lost her dreams and lost her identity. She struggles to find her way again. 

R.L. Griffin does a great job crushing you. She always does with her books. Finding out what happened in Laura’s past is like a slow burn, but I preferred it that way. I was glued to the book and only put it down when necessary. In Megan’s book, we got a lot of sunshine, but with Laura’s book, I feel like it was a bit more emotional. Not all sunshine and roses. My heart definitely went out for her. She is slowing beginning to spiral and lose her way. It is becoming harder for her to see the light. It was definitely Megan’s turn to be there for Laura. I was so used to it the other way around, it was nice seeing the roles reversed. They definitely were meant to be best friends. They can just give each other the look and have a full conversation without any physical talking. 

I began to understand Laura a bit more. She has had to endure a lot in her life and gone through things I can’t even begin to imagine. But it definitely explains why she is so guarded, especially with relationships. Something so big has been eating at her, with no one to share it with. Laura is such a strong person. She masks her feelings so well, not wanting to put anyone else down. Everyones happiness always goes before hers. Only if I had half the strength she has. On the outside she seems to put together, but no one knows how broken she truly is. 

When she first met Max, it wasn’t supposed to be anything serious. Then she realized Max is just as broken as her. They seemed to understand one another, but yet push each other away. I felt bad for Max at times. He laid everything out on the table, but Laura was not willing to give it back. She had her own demons to fight. Demons only she can overcome. Don't get it wrong, Max has his own to battle but he's willing to share it with her. There were so many moments where I was extremely frustrated with Laura. She has this amazing man in front of her and she’s letting him slip away. But then I understood why. 

Can Laura fight her demons and find her happily ever after? Or will they forever haunt her? Will she be able to find her way again?

It was definitely good to see the other characters be a big part in this book. Love me some Meat and Justin. He needs a book now....
