This story was interesting, I liked it but not what I expected. Darius has been alone a long time and is flattered when Rick invites in to dinner. Rick’s proposal for their relationship however left me scratching my head and disconcerted. I’m not a fan of a committed relationship that is also open to them dating others separately.
We saw everything from Darius’ point of view, but for the most part Rick completely explained himself and was open about it thoughts and feelings so I could mostly understand him too. They are both thrown together by circumstances quickly and jump in with both feet. The story had a good background that was well explained and was quick moving, but I didn’t connect with the characters all that much and felt like I got a lot of explanations and not a lot of action.
I love the cover art by Natasha Snow and it is very eye-catching.
I think it was a good idea, but I’m not sure it was perfectly executed. Perhaps it got something to do with the length of it, a little more words would be perfect and the mystery might be a little more interesting. I don’t think I had the opportunity of guessing what the mystery was, there wasn’t any hint and I love trying to guess, but there just wasn’t possible. The pace was just too fast to even understand what was going on and I felt lost a lot of times, especially in the action scenes.
The characters were nice, I liked them all, especially Parker, even though he didn’t have much on page time. I was a little intimidated by Rick’s attitude, I guess I’m not used to someone so upfront as he was, so self-assured and who really knows what he wants and don’t hesitate to ask for it. I felt off guard about him and I didn’t knew what to expect, which made him a great character. I can’t say the say about Darius, he was likable but he felt a little plane and I didn’t care about him as much as I did for Rick. I didn’t liked them together that much, I don’t felt like they had a real connection and the way the relationship was developed felt too forced.
In general it was a nice book. What I liked the most about it was Rick, he was an interesting character and I really liked the family dynamics, even though it wasn’t entirely explore, but I felt like it was a great potential there. I enjoyed it, but I truly would wish it was a lot longer, I think I would like it more. It was my first book from the authors but I’m intrigued for what I’d read and I’ll keep my eyes on them.
Over the past six months I’ve seen a fair number of authors expand short stories into a full-length novel. I’d love to see that with this title because it really does have interesting characters, loads of action, secrets and intrigue, and a good dose of heat. Considering how quickly all those components came together and how enjoyable it was despite its brevity, I can only imagine how good the story would be if there had been time to develop all the potential subplots and suspense more fully. Even so, I though this made for an exciting short story and enjoyed the writing style enough to look forward to more from each of the authors. If you’re in need of a shot of adrenaline, An Unexpected Shot is for you.
