Before Midnight by Jennifer Blackstream

Unabridged Audio Version
I listened to the unabridged audio version of Before Midnight by Jennifer Blackstream and narrated by Matt Addis. Listening time for Before Midnight by Jennifer Blackstream is 6 hours, 37 minutes.

Before Midnight by Jennifer Blackstream is the first novel 'The Blood Prince Series' and is a shifter paranormal romance novel, with a Cinderella vibe/feel to it.

I thought that Matt Addis did a good job of narrating Before Midnight by Jennifer Blackstream. I also enjoyed that this novel didn't have a cliffhanger ending. 

As far as shifter paranormal romance novels go, I thought Before Midnight by Jennifer Blackstream was simply okay, nothing special. The introduction of this novel took a bit of time to get into as a lot of characters were introduced at the beginning of this novel and many of the characters from the beginning of the novel didn't have a major role in Before Midnight by Jennifer Blackstream after that, so I am only assuming that they make an appearance in later novels in 'The Blood Prince Series'. 

I didn't like the 'instalove' factor between the main characters of Loupe and Etienne in Before Midnight. I also didn't like all of the Cinderella elements that the author chose to incorporate into the novel as well... It just made the novel feel weird. I think it would have been better to just focus on the novel as a shifter paranormal romance without making the story have the Cinderella elements that were strewn throughout the novel.

The following is a plot summary for Before Midnight by Jennifer Blackstream from Audible:
Cursed. Kissed. Bitten.
The prince is throwing a ball. But he's not looking for a princess. He's looking for a werewolf. Start this USA Today best-selling series now and see if the prince gets a kiss...or a bite.
An alpha wolf fighting a powerful curse.
The werewolf prince Etienne is turning into a human. A fierce and loyal pack, Etienne and his family have protected their kingdom with tooth and claw - literally - for hundreds of years. Unfortunately, the spell of a well-meaning witch is slowly stealing the beast from inside him. Only the bite of a cursed werewolf - one who was not born with the beast inside - can save him from losing everything. He has no time for anything that will not lead him to a cure for the curse. Not even the beautiful maiden whose gentle nature soothes his soul even as she tempts him into primal pursuits of an entirely different nature.
I am giving Before Midnight by Jennifer Blackstream a rating of 2 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy listening!!
