Margarita Mondays, Taco Tuesdays, the works. But when the fae prince appears to call in his favor, Joey has no choice but to live up to the bargain she made and leave Wine Wednesday in her wake.

Book 2 featuring Joey Whitmore who is not as young as she used to be and her fae trickster is available now!

This book killed me. I am now officially dead inside because I gave it all my feels. Enjoy!
It took me a bit longer to read this book, but it was another amazing read! Joey is back in her own timeline after book 1 and waiting for Robin to show up after his 'threat' at the end of book 1. It was great to read about Joey and her family again. And Robin.. oh.. Robin. Handsome fae prince.

I cannot divulge too much because of spoilers. But I can say that book 2 tugged at my heartstrings for Robin. It is revealed what happened to him in the period since he struck his last bargain with Joey an

Midlife magic!

I absolutely adore this authors writing style no matter the genre so far I I’m just smitten with her work! This midlife paranormal series is no different. Joey is a jaded midlifer who wanted to go back and change her accident that ended her career. She made a deal with the Fea Prince Robyn in book one. This is book two and she’s awaiting for him to arrive to finish the deal. What she isn’t prepared for is the major surprises headed her way and all the family drama that goes with i

A fun sequel to the first book “Over the Faery Hill”. Here, Joey is trying to move on with her life. She’s teaching gymnastics with her old coach and practicing to become a yoga instructor. But she just can’t get away from the Fae. Robin Goodfellow wants to cash in on the bargain they made – a pretend engagement – and Robin’s brother, Andreas, wants help with a serious family problem. Joey teeters between wishing all this magic ‘stuff’ would just go away and fighting her feelings for Robin, the ...more

"You believe what you want to believe, Joey. But just because you believe it, doesn’t mean it’s the truth."

Are Joy and Robin fated? What's going to happen? And who let the dogs in?

The first book that Jennifer Hart wrote was my #1 book of last year. If possible, this one's even better! I love Joey, she reminds me of me when I was 20 years younger with my own issues ;). And just when you think things couldn't get worse...better? along comes two new characters that hold everyone's fate in their han

Joey Whitmore had foolishly entered into an agreement with a Fae prince. When he shows up to collect the favor she owes, she has no other choice than to comply. She is to pretend to be Robin Goodfellow’s mortal fiancé and then the debt is over.

But the Fae are a bit tricky, and Joey knows the prince is hiding something. He doesn’t seem to be acting the same as she remembered from before; and she finds she does have feelings for him. But if she cannot get untangled from the Fae, she may be stuck

The fae side if forty. Is the second book on the series. It was an enjoyable conclusion to the story. In this series I found them less fanciful than other midlife books, however more realistic in the characters and the situations they get into, if dealing with a fae prince can be at all realistic, who says it can't. There were laugh out loud moments and also some deep issues brought up. I recommend this as a good read as well as other books by this author. Looking forward to the new series comin ...more
I love this book even more than the first one. Robin is back and he is so swoon worthy that I don't know how Joey resists him. I love these characters and really want to see more of them. I received this as an advanced reader copy to review. Honestly though, I buy all of Jennifer L. Hart's books any ways. This was just a bonus because I got to read if before it came out. It looks like there might be a spin off of this series so here's hoping we see more of this cast of characters as well. ...more

I love reading both romance and fantasy and they are combined by Jennifer L Hart into this terrific series. You can read this book without reading the first one and still understand it but it’s so much better to read both. I really enjoyed this book with its warping of traditional fairy tales and strong female characters. It is by turns exciting, sad, sexy and fun to read. I can’t wait to read the follow up series.

I wanted to like this story more because I like the characters but whew, it’s a plodding, narcissistic journey through the first half. It gets tiring reading about all the insecurities and doubts a woman has over and over..then finally, the action starts and there are a few rewarding scenes that made me laugh out loud. There are good plot twists and lots of love in the end but it takes determination for the reader to get there.

I wasn't quite as enchanted with book 2 in the series because of the graphic sex, but at least the author was direct about that section and gave the readers an out (feel free to skip ahead if you don't want the details, etc.). Book 2 was more predictable since I already knew the characters, but I still enjoyed rejoining the 2 main characters as they connected. ...more

A great story with wonderful characters

Combined time travel, fairies, magic and interesting fun characters compile an unusual story. Both books made the story come alive. Ill miss these people.

Enchanting character work and an engaging story line made this a great addition to this series and reminded me why this is fast becoming my favorite trope.

Enjoyed every minute

Joey and Robin kept me entertained from the first page of their first book until the last page of this one. There were truly funny moments, and very heartfelt ones. I enjoyed following their story.

Far side of forty

This is a great book and series. In my mind I tweeted the ending a little. The characters are wonderful even though I did get unhappy with the main character sometimes. Once again great read

As much as I loved Over the Faery Hill, the first in the magical Midlife Misadventures, The Fae Side of Forty, the second and newest book in the series, captivated me even more! Jennifer L. Hart’s book are always winners in my book.
It is time for Robin to show up and claim his side of the bargain. Joey is terrified of what may happen next but there is a part of her that has fallen for the trickster fae prince and looks forward to his arrival. By no stretch of the imagination can Joey begin to g
