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.
If I say much more about the book itself, I'll give too much away. So, that is all you get from me on that. Let's move on to the technical and not so technical parts.
First, this is a novella. You are not getting a full novel with this. Be aware of that. I hate to get something and find out it is not quite what I was thinking it was. I'm not a fan of novellas, but this one couldn't be anything but. It's perfect in the size it is in. Many times I think a novella could have been expanded more into a full length novel, but not this one. Ms. Scott kept it just the right size for the story.
It is paranormal. There are a few hot and heavy scenes. Don't like these, don't read it. Like these, please read it. Ms. Scott's dialogue and character development is wonderful. She creates a story with depth as there are multiple people involved with each of them playing a part. If you have me smiling at the end and wanting more, you have succeeded. I want more of Ms. Scott's writing. It was a perfect read for an afternoon and quick when I didn't have time.
