This is a delightful short romance story. When the power goes out during a storm, a young woman finds herself in her hot apartment with nothing to eat. When she opens the patio door to let fresh air in, the smell of steaks cooking on the grill and the ambiance of a handsome neighbor lead to a good friendship with more on the horizon. When they go for a walk, they end up rescuing a cat and her kittens from the storm drain now filling up with rainwater. That rescue cements their growing friendship with a possible romance to follow. The story is just the right length for a short, fun read on your Kindle while commuting. The writing is good, with witty conversation. You end up caring about the characters in the story. The scenes are all rated G and so it is suitable for teenagers as well as adults.

Great googly moogly, I can't get over the number of people whining and giving 1-star reviews because they say this is too short when the product details very clearly say it's 24 pages. Additionally, many of those people admit they got it for free; if you get something for nothing and you don't like it, you smile and say "thank you", just like you do when someone brings that nasty corn casserole to a funeral. One of the only 1-star reviews I agreed with questioned what kind of man would send a woman down a flooding storm drain to rescue a cat.

Having said that, I would really like to see the relationship in this story fully developed. For example, the story only touches on the "dislike" between the characters -- the description, though, led me to believe they really hate each other. The dislike is pretty one-sided. I liked the hero's character (well, except for the whole sending the woman down the storm drain thing).

So I'm giving this story 3 stars. If things were a little more developed, I'd go with 4. So come on authors; win me over with the next one. Come through on the promise of this story.

Without electricity, Rachael has many problems, but the pressing one is her neighbor, Luke. He loves storms and cats. He is also handsome and charming...a perfect candidate for romance. But is Rachael ready for love with this mystery man? A great short story and a fun read.

This was a short story, but had some interesting characters. The woman-- sorry can't remember her name is writing an article for a magazine when a huge storm hits and the power goes out. She has no food and is hungry. As she steps out onto the porch she smells meat cooking and her new upstairs neighbor offers her some food for dinner. She is about to refuse, but decides she is hungry and it wouldn't be safe to go out in the storm. After they are done eating and the storm has stopped, she and the man upstairs go for a walk. He also happens to be her new boss. As they are out walking around they hear some noises for help and find a cat and her kittens in the storm drain. Her boss finds a man hole and checks it out. He then tells her she will have to go down and get the cat and kittens. She is appalled and is he crazy? When he explains - she understands and does has he suggests... There are disgusting things down in the man hole and anyone would be crazy to go down there, but she does and rescues the cats. Later as they are going upstairs to take care of the cats and change clothing, her coworker Gabe is there and it becomes a struggle to see who will win. Gabe says he is has been worried about her.. Her phone died and he could not get a hold of her, so he drove across town to check on her and to ask her to dinner. Will she go with Gabe? -- The story is short and is a preview of others to come. Looking forward to more from this author

Luke and Rachel are neighbors in a condo. Rachel is a workaholic and she considers her upstairs neighbor annoying as he's always happy and playing Christian music. When a storm hits and Rachel can't work on her laptop, heat her supper in the microwave or do much of anything....Luke invites her to eat with him. Quite an enlightening moment night for her.

Looking forward to the next part: After the Storm

In this book, Rachel Harman is a reporter who finds herself stuck in her apartment in the midst of a storm. The power goes out and she is left in the dark hungry and on a deadline for her job. Her paper has recently been purchased by a new owner and she is anxious to show herself worthy. Her upstairs neighbor Luke has always been one of those "insufferably pleasant" sorts and the last thing she expected was spending time with him, much less go on a brief adventure.

True to most group authored books I've read, the writing was seamless and it was difficult to tell where any changes occurred. The story is very short and I finished the three chapter book in about 20 minutes. Overall it was an interesting read, albeit a bit unbelievable. It had all the components of a great romance, but the story seemed to be a bit hurried and shallow and forced to fit into the three chapter model. All in all a cute read, but certainly designed to be a teaser to whet the reader's appetite for more.
