BFF K’s Review:
I’ll admit, I normally shy away from novellas. Unless it’s a series where I’m already really invested in the characters, I’ve always felt that novellas are a little like eating a whole bag of Skittles….Sure, they’re tasty and they make me happy, but I’m always left wanting something more substantial.
BUT, this book is working hard to change my mind! Plus, it is an incredible chance to get a glimpse into the fantastic writing styles of several of the genre’s best authors. I’ve followed several of these authors on Facebook forever, but haven’t had the chance to read their work. (Looking at you, Molly McAdams!) So, this was a great way to get a glimpse at writing styles. Now that I know what I’ve been missing, I have several more authors to add to my go-to-lists!
I will definitely reconsider my stance on novellas. I’ve usually thought that the character development in novellas is weak. I was a little over 1/2 way through the book and declared (in my Kindle notes) that “when a writer is skilled at building deep, rich, beautiful characters you don’t need a full length novel to get to become invested in the characters!” Trying to pick my favorite from these 4 stories seems a like trying to pick my favorite treat in a tasty appetizer sampler….it’s really hard, depends on what you’re hungry for and sometimes just can’t be done! 🙂
BEHIND HER EYES by A.L. Jackson – Misha and Darryn have a really sweet story and A.L. Jackson’s writing seems to flow like poetry.
SAVING ME by Molly McAdams – Kier is amazing. He’s the kind of book boyfriend that you wish for your BFF. This is particularly true if your BFF has had a run of really bad luck like Indy. They’re two lost souls who find each other in a really unique and heartfelt way, with lots of unexpected twists I didn’t see coming!
FOULING OUT by Tiffany King – I loved the story of Dalton and Courtney! I’m a sucker for an athlete love story, especially when the heroine is immune to the skills. This story was really sweet! You’ll likely find yourself wishing that Dalton was trying to prove his love for YOU!
BENEATH YOUR LAYERS by Christina Lee – Blake and Chloe have a wonderful, opposites attract story. They seem like such an unlikely match from the outside, but each brings out some really wonderful characteristics in the other!

When she’s not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and fried pickles, and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm … or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren’t really happening.
