Strangers meet and Sparks Fly!
on March 14, 2011
"Saying Yes" is a quick, steamy read. Despite the short length, which can often lead to cliched characters, tropes and scenes, this managed to avoid that.
Zadie and Tristan were suddenly thrown together in a flat they thought they each had to themselves. But sparks fly and soon finding someone else in their space is a very welcome thing.
I liked Tristan and Zadie. They were easy to relate to, and I was looking forward to them having some happiness.
There is a minor moment towards the end where I felt some angst was added unnecessarily, but it was quickly resolved and didn't take from my enjoyment of the story.
I'll definitely look for more by Barbara Elsborg in the future.
Keep in mind that this is a short story, and can be read in about 15mins.
