I found this book a month or two ago on the top free lists on the Kindle Store and was intrigued enough by the premise to download it to my Kindle. There wasn't much of a product description, but I guess that's somewhat to be expected for a novella that's only 61 pages--fully a quarter of which is teaser for another book.
Amber Scott does seem to have some talent as a writer, but it's overshadowed by the bizarre nature of her work. I work as a therapist with young women, and the protagonist of this novella is definitely a candidate for treatment. The idea that someone could, after eight years, still be obsessed with a cheating boyfriend who they had only known for two months?
There's nothing romantic there at all, and I find it disturbing that Sara is portrayed as "normal", instead of someone desperately needing pyschological help. What makes it all the more strange is that she and her dead boyfriend seem to interact solely on the sexual level, further indication that their relationship(even while alive) was anything but healthy.
The plot of the book gets one star from me. Scott's writing ability brings it up to two, but this is definitely NOT recommended. I work with too much of this abusive crap to see it portrayed as "romantic" in a novella.
I had a difficult time understanding Sara, her boyfriend has been dead for eight years, and the girl is still a basket case. Given, her boyfriend still visits her in dreams, but as the story unfolds, it turns out that Sara has been in denial about the nature of their relationship. While she and Crew had been in love, their relationship was far from perfect. Sara puts her dreams and visions of Crew above everything else in her life, and really this just doesn't make much sense to me, especially after 8 years. Crew maintains that he loves Sara, but his actions (while he was alive) contradict that very much. This left me feeling quite confused and conflicted.
There is a very strong supernatural element to this novella, dreams become flesh and no one really knows what is going on. I think that the goal was to show that Sara and Crew shared a deep love, a love so deep that when Crew died, he was still attached to Sara on a certain level. However, there are other issues with their relationship (aside from the fact that Crew is dead), there is a truth that Sara doesn't want to face, and she can't move on until she comes to terms with the truth.
I admire the pull between Sara and Crew, and the chemistry between them sizzles. The story itself has a unique pull, with love reuniting lovers even after death.Read more ›
What would she do if she could have one more chance to spend time with him? Well, this story will tell you. At times, it changes scenes too aburbtly and it takes a second to catch on to what just happened. But it isn't too hard to catch up.
The story was too short and could have explained more...but it was a good, quick read and it was fun to suspend belief and imagine the impossible actually being possible.
Grant had carried the weight of the disappearance of his nephew for years. It had eaten away at his very soul and made any attempt at normalcy impossible. That and the fact he now shared his body with a wolf, made Grant shy away from everyone. He had exhausted every conventional and a few unconventional means in order to find out more about Tristan's disappearance. When his sister contacted him once again with a potential prospect to find him, Grant was immediately on guard. He took Leigh for another con-artist with an agenda and was hell bent on exposing her. That is until he met her face to face.
The sorrow that is embedded in this story does not take away from the fact it is an exceptionally unique and utterly delightful read! You are engulfed into the story so quickly it's almost as if you are under a spell with the words "the end" breaking the hold. It literally grips on to you, restraining your ability to focus on anything else until you know what happens.Read more ›
