1.0 out of 5 stars connections August 25, 2012

Format:Kindle Edition
Not much of a story, Boring and bland. The charater makes random calls and finally talks to one of the people she calls because he mistook her for someone else. Thats it no other story line, no background, nothing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh June 19, 2012
By NYC212
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am not bothered by the weird girl protagonist like most other reviewers, however I thought this was lukewarm erotica. I didn't find there was any sizzle and pop between Seth and Cathy. I felt that Seth was an underdeveloped character, which was probably why I didn't feel there was any chemistry. This is the first Selena Kitt story I've picked up, so I was disappointed after hearing that her stories are fantastic. I'll pick another one up to see if it's any better.

On a technical note, my Kindle version skipped a few pages. I went from 26% to 28% in one tap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific short romantic story April 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book starts with a strange premise... a girl who calls up random people to hear their voices happens to call a stranger that stays on the line, and knows her name. It didn't take me long to get hooked, and the characters are fleshed out so that the sex is very romantic as well as erotic. Perfect steamy read!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, but kind of Desperate September 24, 2012
By keon
Format:Kindle Edition
This book has a good flow and will keep you hooked till the end; like I was. I also loved the main character and how she loves to hear guys voices on the phone. Everybody loves a good read even if you are not a reader, you still expect the story to be interesting… that's how I felt about this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I am used to from Selena Kitt August 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Connections is not your typical Selena Kitt story. It was odd. I don't really know what to say except that I found it weird. I thought that the main protagonist, Cathy was borderline suffering some sort of mental disorder. Some may say that she was just quirky but when an adult (lonely or not) does prank telephone calls, I'm wondering what exactly is wrong with her in the head.

It was a freebie on Amazon and I love Selena Kitt stories so where could I go wrong?
If you want something just a little bit different I say go and pick it up. Selena Kitt always delivers on the smut.

3.0 out of 5 stars Romance not BDSM August 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a borderline 2/3 short story. This comes up as a free read from Selena Kitt, who I rate as a good BDSM/ erotica writer. Put BDSM into kindle search and this comes up, hence I added it to my BDSM reading challenge. That is why I rated it borderline 2 stars as it is not BDSM, has no links and shouldn't come up in said search. Reader beware if this is the reason you have it.
However, I give it a full three stars for the story as is, which is a sad story, beginning with Cathy, an extremely intelligent university scholarship girl now drop out. Her strange obsessions and behaviour show she is mentally ill and withdrawn from family, friend and humankind, bar working in order to live. Her connections with humans, her strange reaching out through nuisance phone calls, and of not answering when people pick up finally puts her in touch with someone with humor, Seth is someone with patience, concern and persistence. Seth doesn't give up, but connects with damaged Cathy. Eventually meeting, and initiating her into her first proper sexual experience. It is patient, caring and loving. It has no element of control or BDSM. It is actually a lovely story in it's own right. Just wrongly categorized regard genre. Worth reading, and made my eyes water with compassion for poor Cathy and admire the caring loving compassion of lovely Seth. This part is a good three stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Characters are not likeable June 8, 2012
By M
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I couldn't even finish this book. I was rolling my eyes at the main character from the start. The typical 'weird chick' who likes Bob Dylan and does nothing in life because she thinks society tries to change her. The whole time I'm thinking get over yourself girl. I don't feel I was made to feel sorry for her or like her in any way. She sounds lazy and ungrateful. The guy who befriends her over the phone is also not described in a desirable way.

1.0 out of 5 stars Connections ... missed? January 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Book: Connections
Author: Selena Kitt
Rating: M (for mature audiences - sexual content)

Bookshelves: fiction, lies, Michigan, mommy issues, romance, USA,
Setting: Michigan (USA)
Characters: Seth, Cathy

Synopsis: Cathy collects phone books and likes to randomly call phone numbers. This is her day to day life, calling strangers and listening to Bob Dylan with her fish. One day, she happens upon Seth, a college student who mistook Cathy for another Cathy he knew. They talk every day and develop a strange friendship.

Review: This was the strangest short story I've read in a long, long time. I couldn't say that I liked Cathy. She was weird and very needy. She clearly had issues other than the mommy issues she expressed a couple of times. When she finally physically meets Seth (who we really don't get to know all too well) whom she's been talking to on the phone for a while, she jumps right into bed with him. That's a classic response for a person with issues. I can't say I liked this book or would recommend it to anyone else.

In my opinion, this book gets:
1 out of 5 stars
Not a good read and would not recommend it to someone else
