Why I bought it:
I picked up Attracting Anthony a couple of weeks ago because I enjoy reading sharp shorts between longer length stories and reading books for review purposes. My version of a ‘breather’.
Dislike/like (ending on a high note):
Dislike~ I admit that after reading Attracting Anthony I wasn’t sure if I would read any more of the series. It wasn’t that I didn’t like the story, but at approx. 11,500 words there wasn’t a heck of a lot of meat to the plot other than the ‘we are mates’ theme and my lingering curiosity about Anthony. What the heck is he??
Like~ So I picked up the other three in the series on the weekend, which has nothing to do with me putting off reading a book for Wave’s blog. *snort* In all seriousness though, I was interested to see where the author was going with this series and I wasn’t disappointed. Although each story explores the romance between a particular couple (or threesome as the case maybe), there is an underlying mystery plot that connects them. This is particularly evident in Books C and D. It is almost like each book is a sub-plot to the overarching mystery. I like it.
Dislike~ I would like to see more world-building, but realise it would be difficult to do in such a short format. Perhaps more information about the world will filter through as the series progresses.
Like~ I’m really enjoying the writing of this new-to-me author. I think she (? I assume) has a tight style and paces the plot very well for this short format, which some of you may know is one of my pet peeves with these kind of stories.
So, what I think:
I’m hooked now. Unless something disastrous happens, I’ll be reading the lot of ‘em.
