Most Helpful

Fast, fun, fantastical read.

If you could sum up Midsummer Curse in three words, what would they be?

Different, fantastical, shifters.


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would have allowed Brayton to pound the living shit out of Ferdie, since he thought or talked about wanting to at least a dozen times.


What about Paul Morey’s performance did you like?

Flawless, as usual.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Brayton woke up after the wolfsbane knocked him out to find Ferdie asleep on the floor by his bed.


Any additional comments?

Brayton is a natural born shifter, a lone wolf and a jack of all trades. He winds up in the mostly supernatural inhabited town of Midsummer at a friend’s request to help a cursed gremlin find out who and why he was cursed, and hopefully, break it. The last thing Brayton expected was to fall for the sexy little shy gremlin that he lovingly nick names ‘Itty Bitty’ five minutes after they meet.

Ferdie is a gremlin, mechanically inclined by nature, but someone has cursed the poor guy so that every time he tries to tinker, everything he touches falls apart. This, in and of itself, is pure torture for a gremlin. It doesn’t help that his ex-boyfriend is a tool that is trying his damndest to get Ferdie to forgive him and take him back. And then he finds himself insanely attracted and drawn to the shifter that was sent to break his curse.

This was just a fast, fun read. Megan Derr and Paul Morey have become somewhat of an unstoppable team in the MM romance audio book department. She writes these intricate stories, usually shifter and/or magic oriented, and Morey tells those stories with flawless narration. His voice is like honey dripping off the vine, it’s mesmerizing, sexy and fluent. While I enjoyed this audio, I did have one issue with the storyline. At least a dozen times, if not more, in less than three hours; Brayton talked about wanting to bang his itty bitty. I don’t think the man went more than fifteen minutes without talking or thinking about it. But they never do. There is one two minute scene at the very end where a couple heated blow jobs are exchanged, but that’s it. I felt cheated in that aspect. But aside from that, it was an awesome story and I can’t wait to hear more from the town of Midsummer.

Awful

This is a romance story between a warewolf and a gremlin. The plot is predictable. The characters are flat. The dialouge is crude and vulgar. Overall, I could not connect with the main character. Waste of time forme and I did not get through half the book.
