Publisher's Summary

A Chance to Love Again

I wear a lot of labels these days: Single dad, ex-special forces, widower. I've survived war, loss, and a mountain of hardship. But I can't seem to pinpoint what keeps me up at night. Then I walked into the Moonlight Diner and met her.

Sarah and I instantly connected. She mended old wounds and awoke long-buried feelings. But scars from her past still haunt her. Just when I'm finally falling in love again, she's ripped away.

Can I conquer my demons to help Sarah face hers? Can I earn a second chance at love?

I go out walking after midnight

Widowed single father and ex special forces meets Sarah a college student working the graveyard shift. He’s looking for companionship she’s looking for invisibility. They meet and bring out the best in each other.

And I know the writing is fabulous because the authors nails the main characters but also captures some of the worst people you can dream up.

The narrators are ridiculously talented!

Slow Start, but oh so very good!!

This boon wowed me. I was a little nervous at first because it started so slowly, to me at least, but once it picked up, it packed a punch!! The H suffers from PTSD and the author portrayed this so well. The h is in a not so good situation, which the way it was written, breaks your heart. I loved the way these two grew and healed together. My heart was doing a happy dance!!! The narrator's did a fantastic job! #audiobookobsession

Great story!!

I could not put this book down. It wasn’t jam packed with any one thing but rather, just enough of everything you expect in a small town romance.
A truly charming love story with just enough angst for me to want to book slap one of the characters. lol
The characters were wonderful and the narration really brought this story to life.
I definitely recommend this book!!

Thank you for the audio

Thank you for the audio, I voluntarily give this an honest review. Caleb suffers from PTSD but his one mission right now is to care for his son. meeting Sarah at the diner was unexpected to say the least. this was a slow build up to the two really getting to know the other, with both having trust issues. with bruised past can the two take a chance with the other. narrators Juliana Solo and Daniel James Lewis did a great job on this one.

Lots of twists


After midnight was an interesting listen. Caleb is a veteran with PTSD who is a widower with a teenage son and he meets Sarah, who works at the local diner. Through many twists and turns, the two characters have common issues and foes. Their romance is a long time coming, but well deserved.
Juliana Solo and Daniel James Lewis did a good job of making the characters come to life.

Far Too Long

Over 2 hours before the H/h even learned each other's name.

The story is just okay.

Narration was pleasant but I would not go out of my way to follow either of these narrators.

Caleb and Sarah!

After serving 20 years in the army Caleb has returned home to start the next stage of his life. Not only is he dealing with aftereffects of being in the Special Forces but he is trying to rebuild his relationship with his teenage son and dealing with the grief of his wife who passed away 2 years ago.

After a traumatic experience at college Sarah was shunned by her parents and has been living with her brother. She is trying to finish her degree and works at the diner.

A chance meeting when he comes into the diner where she works the night shift and they are drawn to each other. Their friendship develops into something much deeper but between their pasts and their families will they find the happy ever after they both deserve?

I received a complimentary copy of the audio version of this book and thought the narrators did a great job at bringing the emotion and drama of the story to life.

Love Lacy Hart

I have enjoyed all her books so far and this one is no different. I love the characters in this book (except the wicked sister-in-law) the narrators did great. There were lots of emotions in this book and I felt them all. Such a wonderful heartfelt story. I loved it!

Single Dad, x-military, older man younger woman

This book has so many things going on, all of which make for a good story. Caleb has retired from the Army, he was in a special forces and now he is back trying to reconnect with his 17 year old son. His wife passed away 2 years prior and his son has been living with Caleb's sister. He is trying to deal with being back and all the emotions he has bottled up over the years.

Sarah is living with her brother and his family after a scandal happened to her when she was in college. She is working the night shift at a local diner and taking online courses to finish her degree. To say things are a struggle for Sarah is an understatement. Her sister-in-law has become more and more hateful to Sarah and she isn't quite sure why.

When Caleb comes into the diner one night and sees Sarah both of their worlds will never be the same.

This is a great story with lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing. The supporting characters are well explained in this book so you get a feel for all of the characters in this book. I loved how the story included everyone so you truly feel like you get to know the families and all the dynamics that are going on.

Juliana Solo and Daniel James Lewis did a good job. I sped up my speed to 1.25 and could have been at 1.5 to listen. It seemed as though they drug the words a little for me but overall I enjoyed listening to both narrators.

#Audiobook Obsessions
I received a code to listen and review and give my honest opinion. I loved this book, the story is good. Sarah's character could have had a little more backbone but she was young and had been beat down with life so it explained itself. I recommend this audiobook.

finding your perfect out of brokeness

Life is not perfect...especially not for retired special forces, widower & single dad, Caleb. He is still mourning the loss of his wife to a car accident two years ago, while trying to adjust to civilian life after 20 yrs in the Army. Not to mention that he's finding it hard to bond with his teenage son. Caleb is thankful for his older sister, Linda, who has been the best support for Caleb and son, Adam. He hates having to live with her but acknowledges that he can't get over whatever mental/emotional turmoil is preventing him from being 'normal'. On one particularly sleepless night, he decides to visit the local all night diner, Moonlight Diner. There he meets a Sarah, a pleasant and a tad quirky, waitress. Caleb feels comfortable with Sarah...something that hasn't happened in a while.
Sarah did not expect to still be living with family at 25yo but here she is, working at a diner for the past 4yrs, trying to finish her degree online and living with her brother and his family. She has been slowly recovering from depression that has plagued her for years, ever since a traumatic event in college. The tension between Sarah and her SIL is palpable, and she knows that her time with her family is coming to an end. Then she meets Caleb...the quiet single dad, who wakes something in her. The pair begin a tentative that morphs into more and we're rooting for an HEA...until someone blackmails Sarah, and her past comes back with a vengeance! Great book with an even better HEA! #AudiobookObsession!

Finding your happiness

After Midnight is titled perfectly! Sarah is a waitress who works the overnight shift at the local diner. Caleb has recently returned to town after retiring from the military and comes to the diner when he has trouble sleeping. These two broken souls have an immediate connection, but their lives are anything be easy. We get to experience a little bit of everything with this couple. Acclimating to civilian life, getting to know your family, dealing with social media, infidelity, it gives a look a so many different aspects of life, but flows together seamlessly. It's a journey worth taking, after midnight!

These two narrators are new to me, and I loved their performance. Juliana Solo gives us Sarah's point of view. She easily is independent, and strong, but also adds layers of inflections to the character we get to pull off as we get to know Sarah. Daniel James Lewis is wonderful as Caleb. He has an insecurity in his voice, but is able to give him strength as he heals. I loved them together in their portrayal of this story.

Broken widow searching for healing

This is an amazing story of two broken people who learn that they both need each other. Caleb and Sarah both have broken pasts. Caleb is a widower who lost his wife while he was on a military mission. Sarah was blackmailed when in college with photos and banished from her home town. Lacy Hart had an amazing book that hooked me from the beginning. Daniel Lewis has a very smooth and sultry voice.

After Midnight

I really liked this sweet love story. Caleb and Sarah had an instant connection with each other but each were dealing with their own baggage. The main characters were likable, and the storyline was interesting.

Juliana and Daniel both did a great job bringing this story to life.

Good Book

This is a good book, it's a sweet romance between Caleb and Sarah. This book also deals with some heavy hitting subjects like assault, extortion and a crappy sister in law. Caleb is learning how to deal with life after the death of his wife and also leaving the military. Sarah is learning to find her self again.
