Blazing Midsummer Nights by Leslie Kelly

Review of Blazing Midsummer Nights by Leslie Kelly

5 out of 5 smirks

"Anything can happen on a magical midsummer’s eve...

Marketing director/workaholic Mimi Burdette has The Plan—work for her father and date his right-hand man. Problem is, there’s no heat in the relationship. Not even a spark. And worse still, Mimi is having some seriously sexy, panties-ablaze dreams—and the star looks a lot like Xander McKinley, the hunky firefighter next door.

Mimi’s dreams might be due to the strange tea she drank. Or the predictions from the fortune cookie she ate. Or they could be due to Xander’s smokin’ hotness. But whether it’s magic or just old-fashioned fireworks, Mimi is about to break all of the rules—including her own!"

I loved how this story took on a life of its own, much like A Midsummer Nights Dream itself.  I loved the parallels this story took and how modernized the characters became.  Mimi is a character who is devoted and endlessly beautiful; Xander has a certain wit and calmness along with hotness about him which will keep readers on the edge of their seats trying to figure out when these two characters will collide.  I don't want to give anything away, but if you are a Shakespeare fan then you know how the story goes.  I give 5 smirks to Blazing Midsummer Nights by Leslie Kelly because it's hard not to fall in love with the characters and a modernized classic.
