|Written On His Skin|
|July 6th 2017|
|Letters are magic, don’t you think?
You could be anyone. I could be anyone.
And then, suddenly, we’re more than anyone.
When Abigail Trent agreed to write a letter to a soldier deployed overseas, she expected it to be a fleeting exchange. A friendly back-and-forth that ended barely after it began. She didn’t expect Theodore LaRoux.
It isn’t strange that writing feels so good. It’s right.
Abby didn’t expect Roux to be a living fantasy, either–sexy, smart and strong enough to star in every one of her dreams. So, was it any wonder that when he asked for a photo, she sent one that would star in his dreams? The fact that it was a picture of someone else wouldn’t be a problem. After all, it’s not like they’d ever meet…right?
Written On His Skin is a sexy, dirty 30,000-word novella featuring a set-the-pages-on-fire Cajun hero and the curvy girl who wins his heart. HEA guaranteed.
This book is a short story
This book received 5 stars from me
Yes you are reading correctly
There is a first time for everything and this is one of those moments.
If you had asked me a few days ago I would have told you that it was a nearly impossible feature to reach 5 stars with me if you write a short story.
Then there was the next surprise to me – it looks like this book is a debut novel. (Please do NOT tell me this is a bestselling author writing under a new pen name – because I want to believe in the miracle of discovering new authors)
I am not sure what to say about the story – well maybe my wish first and that would be … Please rework it and add a little to it – not because anything was missing no just because I did not want to leave the characters.
Usually I complain that short stories never reach the depth I need so I can not connect to the characters. But this storyline is so unique that even if I wish for more it still works because of the plot. Any other plot and this might have been a disaster in the making but here the result was beautiful.
If I would get my wish that the author would add a little to it – I would request it to be in the development of their relationship. To be specific …it should be adding to the development of their feelings towards each other before their first real talk. I really wanted the story to linger there a little longer because it felt so good ….
So .. Dear Author … please continue what you are doing – just do not try to make short stories – aim higher –I am thinking Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward style. …. I am sure you can pull it off …
