  2. Midsummer is practically an angst free M M contemporary novella I enjoyed the setting Theater in the Woods brings a kind of mystical feel to the whole story, because our H H can take a walk into the woods, going to a lake, heck, even finding out a skull yes, a skull, and no this is not a murder mystery The relationship happens pretty fast, but somehow I didn t find it too annoying Maybe because despite the fact that John had been married to a woman for the past decade and never been with a guy b [...]

  3. I received this book free via Inked Rainbow Reviews in exchange for an honest review.First of all, the authors had me at a story about Midsummer Night s Dream, which is my favorite Shakespeare play They were guaranteed success in my eyes unless they royally messed it up Which, fortunately, they were miles from doing.I fell hard for this delightful gem from page one I love how the story much like the play is a study in contrasts John s a bit cynical, a bit snarky, and dealing with the shrapnel of [...]

  5. Maltese McRae are consistently excellent in tailoring their use of language its rhythms, cadences, phrasing to mirror the scenes and characters they are building It is an exquisite joy to read because you are drawn in so well to the world they are creating Midsummer is no different This novella was absolutely delightful and delicious, just the way summer fun is But, they were deft to create than just a fluffy summer romance There are teeth and substance The curve ball that surprises does so in [...]

  6. This book was lovely The lush, beautiful language captured the hushed, wild, dreamy setting of the book, which perfectly supported the characters and play unfolding before us I dearly loved that John s drama and angst had nothing to do with his surprise attraction and relationship with Michael it would have felt a little flat when we find out later what his real wounds are The way they fell into each other was very satisfying Most importantly for me is Michael He s a stunning character ethereal [...]

  7. This is written in third person present tense, which should ve driven me batty, but I loved this book Wonderful characters and a well written story, I m not even hesitating, just diving into the next one.

FiveStarsFirst of all, the authors had me at a story about Midsummer Night s Dream, which is my favorite Shakespeare play They were guaranteed success in my eyes unless they royally messed it up Which, fortunately, they were miles from doing.I fell hard for this delightful gem from page one I love how the story much like the play is a study in contrasts John s a bit cynical, a bit snarky, and dealing with the shrapnel of his messy life He s utterly relatable Michael, on the other hand, is full o [...]

  9. copy provided by author publisher via Pride Promotions in exchange for an honest review I enjoyed this book, perhaps not as much as I thought I would, but that doesn t mean that I didn t like it I loved following all the intricacies of putting together a play like this and I really liked the idea of Michael and John together, despite the age difference They seemed to complement each other quite well, actually, and I loved that the way they fall into this was so seamless I didn t particularly car [...]

  10. I love this gentle, sexy story of elder John who is a couple years younger than I am so I can call him that and 25 yr old Michael They are adorable as they work their way through a summer theatre camp romance Love the twist of John being a formerly straight, bi man the question of labels arises during the story in his forties struggling with identity and experiencing his new sexuality with ethereal, enigmatic alluring Michael That it takes place in a theatre setting makes it even special to thi [...]

  11. Reviewed for Prism Book Alliance Midsummer is my first book from either of these obviously talented authors It this haunting tale, they gave us characters we couldn t help but love while not truly understanding their motivations John is a straight, middle aged recent divorcee Michael is a pixie of a man who has too many quirks to take them all in Somehow, however, they come together through the magic of Summer Stock theater.For Complete review see Prism Book Alliance prismbookalliance pos

  12. This book should come with a warning that it is written in third person, present tense, which is not only distracting for readers, but also pretentious Good writers do not need tricks, especially ones that alienate their readers.

  13. A lushly worded book, filled with romance and characters that leap from the page One of the best M M reads of the year so far

  14. I really enjoyed this story Maltese and McRae continue to make sweet fun stories with deep layers of heart and sadness.

  15. A Midsummer Night s Dream is one of my Shakespeare favourites, so I couldn t ignore the blurb on this It s a pretty straight forward tale, with minimal angst, but the characters made it for me.

  16. Uggg third person present tense in writing drives me crazy, but I still enjoyed this novella I really liked the setting, the group of characters, and I enjoyed reading this one
