Short and sweet; more emotion than sex, but a nice dollop of both

This is another good example of Selena Kitt's writing style. It's the story of Cathy, a college dropout who lacks any real connection in the world. It's a lonely story at first, wholly believable, of a woman who is floating instead of swimming. She has a desperate way of 'connecting' in a very tentative way, a variation on prank dialing that provides a little bit of human contact that she doesn't otherwise have. Through this, though, she meets someone and the one-directional, feather-light touch with humanity becomes a strong bond with another human being. I know that I make this sound much heavier than you'd probably want to read, but it's a love story, the story of recovery, and there is some very tender sex. As I said, a good example of Ms. Kitt's style, the emotional depths that she can generate in 22 pages (with an additional 24 pages of advertising...but I can't complain too bitterly, with this being a free book), while still keeping the sex hot. Good characters, a slow but important plot, and hot sex. I enjoyed it.

Can be a little depressing, but a well-writen short

Selena Kitt has a talent for creating well-developed characters--even in short stories. Because the main character is so believably-tragic, it was hard to think of the story in terms of hot erotica. Still a good read, but make sure that you can handle a little sadness...

    Good short story

    In general I like Selena Kitt as a writer. This is, I think, the third story by her that I have read and I liked it, though I will say I enjoyed the other books I've read by her more.

    Anyone picking up this book should know it is a short story, told in the first person. Although it is short Ms. Kitt does a good job of showing the connection between the Caty and Seth. The ending is not necessarily an HEA but it is an appropriate ending for this story. Ms. Kitt seems to enjoy ending her stories on a bit of an unusual note and I appreciate that. In the books I've read Ms. Kitt seems to like to leave things a little open ended for your imagination to fill in. It's a good technique that leave me thinking about the book long after I put the book down.

    So if your looking for a good short story to cozy up with on a rainy afternoon to pass an hour with, this would be a good choice.

    good

    Cathy gets all kinds of telephone books from different states. And she picks up one of the books and calls this guy named Seth. At first he had never hung up. She never hangs up first. Now she dialed Seth's number again and she talks to him now. She stopped making hang up calls since Seth and that has been 8 months now. She has a good job now and Seth wants to be an English teacher. She had taken the telephone books to the dumpster because Seth was going to be going to her house for Easter, He was in her apartment and they had foreplay and then intercourse. I enjoyed this novel, But I wish their was more to the story. ShelleyMA
