Blurb : Kelly has fallen into the humdrum of everyday life. Her fulfilment is found in the washing, the cleaning, the ironing and running herself into the ground with her job. She’s not sure when it happened, but the fun, spontaneity and excitement in her life was lost somewhere along the way. So when she’s asked out on a date by a gorgeous man who demands her attention, Kelly’s not so sure she’s up for it. It’s been a while, to say the least. It would be easy to refuse, stay at home, finish that pile of ironing, and then answer some work emails. The thought of being so organised alone brings a smile to her face. But with the encouragement of her best friend, she bites the bullet and goes all out. Bye-bye ironing, hello gorgeous man. She doesn’t know where this Kelly has been, but she quite likes her, and she doesn’t plan on misplacing her again.
Review : What Jodi Ellen Malpas can do to a reader within 5k words is incredible!
Directly after the first lines I knew: this is a Jodi-ish book, without a doubt. I love the story which is short but includes so many different emotions.
Normally you can´t really connect with the characters of a book in such a short time, but Jodi made it possible with introducing us to Kelly and the mysterious but without a doubt sexy as hell man!
The message this short-story conveys within the 25 pages is even better, because if you think hard enough about it, it makes this book even more interesting!
And the best part about all of it? It´s for a good cause!
So enjoy reading while helping others at the same time!
