Review of Blazing Midsummer Nights by Leslie Kelly
Published: June 5, 2012
5 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis:"Anything can happen on a magical
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.
