Summary

Madison gave her heart to a boy at the age of 16, but all she got in return was a broken heart and a swollen belly. 

Alone with a baby and desperate for the love she hadn’t found, she turned to a man who sealed his claim of devotion with a diamond ring. 

He promised her a family. A life. A future. But his lies had only been a cover for the personal hell he introduced her to daily. 

Now, at 25, Madison has long since stopped believing in love. Balancing single parenthood, three jobs, and online courses, she doesn’t have the time anyway. 

So when the broody neighbor living in the other side of her duplex leaves a rude note on her door, she’s not interested. 

Not in his dark hair, not in his physique, and definitely not in the dimples she’s only seen a hint of. She’s 100 percent, absolutely, not interested. 

Not even a little.

THIS MAN

Oh my god this narrator can do whatever he wants to me. His voice is INCREDIBLE! The story is okay, but I would read the phone book if this man was reading it.

Brilliant

So loved the dual narration of Krys Janae and Zachary Johnson. Both so perfect for this great book.

Madison has long since stopped believing in love. After giving her heart away at 16 and now balancing single parenthood, three jobs, and online courses, Love is not on the cards !!

Garrett is the grumpy , handsome neighbour who is 11 years older than Madison and at first, they get off on the wrong foot, he accuses her of being a gold digger.
When she has a run in with her ex, and Garrett comes to the rescue.

Loved

Single parent heroine, age gap romance with grumpy hero

3.5 stars. Meet Me Halfway is an age gap contemporary romance between a single mom heroine and her grumpy neighbor hero. I enjoyed this one for the most part, more so the beginning half! I do love slow burns but for me to enjoy them the steam, chemistry and moments building up to the pay off moment have to be worth it along the way. This wasn’t perfect for me because I did want more buildup and steam…it kind of just happens all at once at the end. 😅

Madison is a single mom to her son, she has been through a lot in her 25 years…she was a teen mom, has gotten out of an abusive relationship, and has gone through a divorce. She is doing everything she can to make sure her son has a great life, including working multiple jobs, going to school full time online, paying for his tuition at a fancy school, and just being a parent. One night while studying with her music playing, she gets a knock at her front door and finds a note on the door asking her to keep it down from her grumpy next door neighbor, Garrett. When she sees Garrett a few days later, he assumes the worst about her after overhearing a conversation she’s having with her friend. Thankfully he realizes the error of his ways and how wrong he was about his assumptions about Maddie.

This had lots of tropes I love: a grumpy next door neighbor, age gap (she’s 25, he’s 36), single parent. I really enjoyed Maddie’s relationship with her son Jamie and how much he means to her. I was so angry on Maddie’s behalf while dealing with the mean judgmental moms at her son’s school. Garrett is more rude than grumpy in the beginning, he has lots of opinions about Maddie’s past and her current jobs, sometimes I felt like he leaned into that a bit too much, but he does eventually prove how much he’s there for both Maddie and her son Jamie. I do wish we got the hero POV throughout the story, instead this is told just through the heroine’s POV with an epilogue/chapter from an incident earlier in the book that we already saw from the hero’s POV. I don’t think the slow burn paid off for me personally, once we do get to the steamy times it felt a little off compared to the rest of the story with barely any buildup.

Great representation

I think this story does a great job portraying single mom struggles and I applaud it! I think we need more of these stories!
Love the characters, I rarely enjoy kids in books and Jaimie was such a delight!

Not bad but not great either!!

Let me start by saying overall I did like the story. I understood why the main character felt and did things the way she did but at some point there has to be a change. I felt that it just got annoying half way through and I just kept getting frustrated with her choices. I’m also curious what happened with that coworker? Seeing how he never took no for an answer it surprised me you never hear a word from him after the incident. I loved the narration. I loved how the male and female was together and not just a back and forth chapter thing. These two narrators are among my favorites to listen to and they never disappoint.

Okay

It was an okay story. Narrators did a wonderful job with the characters. It was the main character that was annoying to me and made it just an okay rating.

Cute story, annoying MC

I liked the plot, conflict, and setup for the story, but I couldn’t stand the main character’s need to be miserable. The prideful, self-pitying, “the world is out to get me”, independence drove me crazy. Her inner dialogue was incredibly negative, and the story was based around her victimization. A little trauma makes for a great story, but her attitude was ridiculous. As the HEA was wrapping up, I was like, “wait, no one called her out on how being a really good mom would actually look more like taking her parents help financially, working less, reducing stress, spending more quality time with her kid….?” And if this were real life her, I would say her judgmental assumptions about how people saw her as a working single mother were actually projections of her own insecurity. She would actually be able to find a great support system in a small town. And she probably wouldn’t qualify for food stamps if she was working 3 jobs, right? I’m honestly not sure what the main character was supposed to see in her other than a cute kid and a hot body?
“Your hulky bulky sulking is an unattractive trait.” She must not have read her kid the Pout Pout Fish.
