the annual Montana festival of Midsommardagen, a law enforcement
official must protect a beautiful nurse from her past, thereby breaking his own
vow to never risk his heart.
Lindstrom never had much faith in love. He saw his parents’ marriage collapse
and vowed to avoid the same anguish himself. His fiercely protective nature
drew him to a career in law enforcement, where he’s managed to keep himself and
his heart safe…until now.
Svenson is in danger. After leaving her home in secret, her only hope for
safety seems to lie in the hands of a man who has steeled himself against her
deep blue eyes and sunny smile. But sparks fly between the nurse and her
handsome protector, and those sparks become fire as Katrin melts the ice
surrounding Erik’s heart. That fire will ward off the dark force determined to
keep their sweet midsummer nights from being an impossibly perfect forever.
Flirty and Dirty Book Blog’s Review of Midsummer Sweetheart
Hey Davetta its been a while so lets get to it!! What did you think about Midsummer Sweetheart overall?
Hey BB well Firstly it has been to long! So this is the first ARC we have reviewed in 2014 BB and we have started with a sweet love story! The main thing I have to say I found refreshing about this book was that it was not a race to the bedroom it kind of woo’ed us there.. the electricity between Eric and Katrin was there from the offset but like I say we were woo’ed the rest of the way.
Do you know what I mean by woo’ed into it Naomi?
Hey BB.. I do know what you mean.. it was a gentle stroll to the main event but it wasn’t all the story was about. I have to be honest in the fact that I do love a bit of bedroom action in my books (as you well know) but I found this book to be very sweet.. I think you summed it up when you called it a sweet love story.
Okay Davetta now for one of your favourite questions.. tell us about Eric
Ohh BB YOU know how I love me some Viking God in my books and Eric has that in spades… If I had to use one word to sum him up it would be… YUMMY!!! Of course as all gorgeous Viking Gods do he has his hang ups, mainly with commitment but BB that did not stop me falling head over heels for him. He was the perfect alpha, honest and protective to a fault.
What did you think of Eric Naomi???
I think you nailed it BB.. He was a drool worthy Viking God and just the perfect alpha. I have to say that I found his stubbornness to give in to his feelings a little frustrating at times but I guess all good alpha’s have frustrated the hell out of us at some point. The way he wanted to take care of Katrin made you just love him even more. He gets a double thumbs up from me!!
So Katrin what were your thoughts Davetta? Was she everything we love in a leading lady?
Oh my BB I just found Katrin ADORABLE she was just an absolute angel throughout this story. So many times when the leading lady has had a bad time she can be a bit to victim’ish for me but that is not the case with our gal Katrin. She just comes across as one strong woman who didn’t lose her caring and loving side even though she very easily could of.
What do you reckon Naomi do you agree with my take on Katrin?
I really do agree BB. I think it could have been so easy for Katrin to just roll over and play victim. Be pissed because life had been shitty and give up on love… but not Katrin. I loved that once she decided that Eric was worth waiting/fighting for she just didn’t give up. Thank goodness for that hey BB!!
Okay so last but not least our joint opinion of Midsummer Sweetheart?
We have to be honest that we did struggle with the writing style when we began reading this book. It was very choppy, characters flashing to thoughts and talking to themselves at times that felt a little odd. We also found the use of the Swedish/Norwegian a little unnecessary or just a bit much. Although having said that we did love the sweet nicknames they ended up with for each other.
(Davetta) I just wanted to add that I found it nice that when they found their way into
each others arms it was nice not having a play by play from behind the bedroom doors.
(Naomi) Davetta is that you?????? You love sex scenes.. but okay!! 😉
So all in all we found this to be a sweet loving story about getting over your past to get on with your future. Also we loved the family element too
