Well that was an enjoyable couple of hours! It is absolutely true that these stories can be read in just a couple of hours AND they are completely satisfying! I am so happy Carina Press made sure to market these short stories in such a way because it leaves zero room for misinterpretation. Short stories don’t leave a lot of room for depth of character or story and it’s perfectly okay because they are short stories. Stories that just focus on the romance and not anything else. THIS story did that phenomenally.
Now before I forget to mention this … how about that cover? I would totally lick that repeatedly! #winner
There’s something about a cover matching the story perfectly that really makes my day. This cover is perfection!
Okay, so what we have here is a really quick, age-gap, nanny/boss romance story without the usual societal problematic issues that go along with that. And it was perfectly done. The one person in the story that should have taken issue with the romance, took issue in a very short and concise way so as to not take away from the sexy read. It was perfect. It left the story open to be entirely about Mr. Blakely and Ava and it was blazing hot 🙂
SO, yes, this story surprised even me. Too many times authors will try to write these short taboo stories but miss the mark and turn them into porn on paper and it’s just so disappointing! K Webster did none of that and instead gave us a beautifully sexually driven short story all wrapped up with a lot of heart!
I do have one tiny teeny aspect of the story that kinda maybe creeped me out just a bit and I honestly didn’t see the point. (view spoiler)[Quinn has two teenage boys that are WAY too close in age to Ava. I feel the story would have worked just as well if they were 5 to 8 years younger. Fifteen to her eighteen was just too close for me …. (hide spoiler)] However, that little point is a bleep in this great short story so it doesn’t even affect my love for it!
