I'm one of the publishers of All About Romance. I love reading romance, as well as mysteries, fantasy, history and historical fiction, and all kinds of other things. Staying on Goodreads for now but trying this out in case I decide to switch.
I really liked both of the main characters in this novella, and the story was both steamy and deeply emotional. However, there just wasn't enough there. We start off with a great encounter during a tornado that leads to a fantastic, romantically charged conversation and then boom! Instant lust, lots of sex and the story part of things recedes into the background a little. It doesn't fade away by any means, as we still get some pretty important revelations in the plot, but somehow things felt a little off balance and some of the meatier parts of the novella seemed to get resolved a little too quickly. This didn't need to be an epic, 500+ page doorstopper of a book, but I could have used a little more time with the leads.
