This is the first book I've read by Rian Durant and I can't wait to read more. Midnight Twist was silly and sweet, a fast paced and cleverly written novella that is sure to make you smile.

I was amazed Durant could keep up the pace throughout the whole story, but keep it up she did. It was just a whole lot of creative, nicely written FUN.

My only criticism was when the focus left Jaydon and Eluin and moves on to the relationship between Sam and Eluel. It's still all told from adorable Jaydon's poi

I'm sorry to say that this one just wasn't for me. I was really intrigued by the blurb, I've been on a demon reading sprint these last few days, and it just didn't stack up. Most of all I just sat there thinking WTF, after I'd finished.

To start with, this needed some beta reader

The story started off with a lot of potential but it ended up not working for me and I lost interest.

I don't really know what to think about this book. It seemed fractured. Not at all together. And I honestly felt like the story should have been split in two, as far as the brothers stories, or maybe this story should have been longer to accommodate both of them being in the same story. The plot of the story, as far as Jaydon, seemed like a good idea, it just….needed something. It felt thrown together.

Jaydon lost his boyfriend. Which was actually a good thing considering what an ass he was, but

This started off with potential and then slid rapidly in to a farce - I assume it was meant to be comic high jinx with a fun and cute demon? I didn't understand Jaydon and could not find the connection with the demon of many eye colours - Eluin.

And what value the spat between Eluin's brother and lover Sam added to the story simply baffles me??

There appeared to be many slapstick moments, but I struggled to find the entertainment. The writing was wearing, at times it was like wading through treacl
1.5 stars

The story starts off with Jaydon informing readers about his current boyfriend who is a bit of a spoiled prince (i.e. an entitled rich brat fed with a silver spoon) but it all doesn't matter because they love each other and his boyfriend has always affirmed that he didn't care how destitute Jaydon was. The two are in a mall doing some window shopping. That is until they come across an expresso machine that Jaydon can't afford to buy and his boyfriend desperately wants because it's pret

A charming tale of lovers found in unlikely places, a slice of demon life, told from the perspective of the harried human who finds himself in the middle of it all.

Jaydon receives the brunt of his lover’s wrath when he refuses to buy him an espresso machine. Not that there aren’t plenty of gentlemen willing to console, rebound, or help him in ways he’s not sure he wants to accept. One of these offers comes from an entirely too cute demon offering a contract which could make all of his problems

This book was cute for the most part. It was kind of cheesy, but I liked the characters. I liked the idea of the demons, I just wish it has been a longer book and was built up better. Everything felt rushed. If this would have been a full novel I think it would have worked better.

Background: Rian Durant is an author of many published works, primarily within the M/M romance category. Midnight Twist is her second title with NineStar Press, and follows Jaydon, and young man hopelessly in love with his bratty ex. He cuts a deal with a demon named Eluin, and soon finds his life flipped upside down as a result of the encounter.

The Good: The lead human, Jaydon is easy to get behind. He’s long suffering, and you kinda want to shout at him for being so Hellbent of regaining his e

Midnight Twist is a standalone short read by Rian Durant with a very anime feel to it. It might be an odd way to describe a book, but it did have an anime vibe and when I tried to imagine the characters, they popped in my brain in that style instead of as real people.

Another thing that I noticed about Midnight Twist is that it reads like a second book in a series. What I mean by that is that the world is presented as if it's already been established and the author doesn't need to explain it to u

Sweet. Funny. I enjoyed the paranormal aspects of this book.
Some parts were confusing. Lots of drama. Foot stomping twinks.
There was some romance. Overall this was a fun shorter read.
Could've have more depth to it but was entertaining.
It just might surprise you.

Uhm ... while the blurb sounds promising, the story is not. Well, for me anyway. I can't understand the attraction between Jaydon and his spoiled ex-boyfriend. And the contract plot story with the demon suddenly takes a new trajectory with the appearance of the demon's brother and his lover.

I was LOST, y'all.

And until the very end, I still have no idea how the BET ends up since the bet maker is not really seen again.

I would rate this 2.5 stars, rounded up to 3. It was entertaining to read, but very short and under developed. Everyone the lead Jaydon encounters is gay and wanting to at least see him naked, while the main premise of him wanting to sell his soul for his ex is abandoned very quickly. The writing style is very stylistically purposeful, and I enjoyed it for the most part, but the author skips huge gaps of time, intros to characters and introduces an interesting, but rushed backstory that is trott ...more

Rian is one of those who are both blessed and cursed by the insatiable desire to write stories. Short stories, sometimes longer stories and
yeah, primarily M/M (you can insert more Ms if you like) romance stories.

Always having a plot in mind sometimes proves being hard when having a day time job but Rian manages them both for the time being, assisted by the priceless support of her soul mate, large
