So there are three short stories in this... the first one his Halloween themed and Gabi and Rafe go to a school dance. UGH THE FEELS. I was instantly transported back to all of the lame high school dances I went to. Tho we never had a costume dance for Halloween! I loved the images and the feeling and maybe because it was just Halloween and today is a freezing cold fall day I was able to just immerse myself in everything. And omg Gabi and candy and Trick-or-treating. I died. Also Evan. Bathroom. HILARIOUS.
The second short story is told from Rafe's POV and that was so fun! I love how innocent the poor boy is! His girlfriend is a violent perv (love ya Gabi!) and he blushes at EVERYTHING. And omg Rafe and I have the same fear (SNAKES!!!) and that part cracked me up.
And the last story MADE ME WANT TO CRY. I was srsly holding back tears the entire time. I have a pretty good feeling I know what happened to Gabi's mom (and sometimes I want to be like PUT IT TOGETHER GABI... if I'm right) but Gabi has a dream about her mom and then deals with some pretty painful memories. Gabi makes Rafe put his muscles to work by getting all of the Christmas decorations out of the attic (while resisting the urge to throw him down on the floor and have her way with him! HAHAHAHA) and it was just a very sweet, touching story (with NO DEMONS... which was actually okay).
I love Melissa's writing and her dialogue! It's the best part. I love how sassy Gabi is and how everything makes Rafe blush. I love how annoyingly endearing Evan is. And i just really enjoy how happy these characters make me feel. I LOVE IT when a book makes me laugh.
I almost highlighted the whole novella. Just great laugh out loud short stories inside this novella.
Starting with the whole Halloween dance that Rafe was conspiring behind Gabi’s back together with Penny and Harrison, I laugh so loud when Gabi grilled them all with this big “betrayal”. And of course Halloween wouldn’t be normal for Gabi if she didn’t get some free candy and some demons action in between having another clothing accident and Evan sudden appearance, why did I even believe that her Halloween was going to be remotely normal? Not a chance. Great short story.
The second one was even funnier than the first. After some months dating Gabi, Rafe has followed her rule of never visiting Gabi while she was working, but Evan is Evan and he start saying very embarrassing things about his relationship with Gabi and to avoid that he and Evan go to the convenience store that Gabi works, and boy they find the situation funny and is even funnier how Rafe is truly scared of pissing off Gabi hahahahah, but is not even close to his actual fear, which I won’t say what it is, because it wouldn’t be as funny to reveal it before you guys read it, but Gabi certainly had her revenge laughing at Rafe’s fear. And she had to finish it off by telling Evan too. Hahahahaha. Poor Rafe.
The last story was not as funny as it’s previous ones, mostly because it’s Gabi’s relate of her mother and all the memories that she had buried deep inside her since her mother left them. I almost cried in this one, and it’s a good insight in not only Gabi’s feelings toward her mother and what she wants to keep alive relate to her or not, but it’s also an insight in Gabi’s father and sister thoughts about whether they should keep some traditions regardless of them being also part of their memories of Gabi’s mother. But it’s a great story even being a little sadder than the rest.
This is what I think of as a "filler" novella released in between editions of the "proper" story.
It was a fairly good read exploring a little more of the characters that we met in the first Silver Moon Saga book but sadly for me it felt almost contrived as though the author felt that she needed to keep us in touch with these characters in between books.
For me personally although the story itself was OK it lacked the originality that was so evident in the first story. The writing remains good but I definitely wasn't as invested in this installment.
That being said it still gets a 3/12 rounded up to 4 stars from me and I will still be excited to read "book 2".
