Blazing Midsummer Nights - Leslie Kelly He attempted to tamp down the reaction by shifting his thoughts to less appealing things – like grits, God in heaven, who had ever decided to eat what looked like little pieces of dandruff?The happy couple....Mimi (don’t call her Hermione) is a high-society marketing exec with a boring boyfriend hand-picked by her father (who’s also her boss). Xander (don’t call him Lysander) is a firefighter who moves to Atlanta to shake himself out of his grief after his parents died.The setting....Southern Gothic – complete with a plantation house with secret doors and magnolia trees in the backyard.The storytelling....A really creative and witty retelling of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The hilarious meet-cute sets the tone, and all the flaky secondary characters are there, including the donkey. In between the silliness and the sex, there’s one of the most realistic depictions of office politics I’ve ever seen in a romance.The romance....Yes, it’s Insta-Lust and Insta-Love, but it works. However, I could have done without the cheesy dream sequences.The recommendation....A great summer read – definitely worth the price!
