Blazing Midsummer Nights by Leslie Kelly
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!
Seeing how I love Shakespeare and the thought of reading a modern romantic retelling of A Midsummer Night’s Dream really interested me. I just wished it had kept me interested. I found myself taking forever to get through Blazing Midsummer Nights. It really shouldn’t have seeing that it is a relatively short book. I just found myself putting it down a lot and then not want to go back and finish reading it.
I wish the plot had been better and I could have really done without those crazy dreams Mimi had. They didn’t add anything to the story and almost made me quick reading it altogether due to the fact one of them was borderline ménage.
I wish there was a better plot and more of a connection between Xander and Mimi. If there had been I think I would have enjoyed it a lot more.
