    BookWhisperer Reviews: Drip Drop Teardrop

    Drip Drop Teardrop is a very short story at just over sixty pages. The storyline follows a young girl that was orphaned at nine years old after a tragic car accident with her parents. Her loving Aunt takes her in happily, but now a terminal cancer has taken hold and the future for Avery looks to be very lonely. While out with her friends one night every month at the local 4.0 night club; she has several run ins with a mysterious man named Brennus. Little does Avery know Brennus is following her for a reason, and it just might cost her her life. Avery is a simple character, and readers will find it easy to sympathize with her character. Brennus is mysterious and a bit scary. When Avery discovers Brennus is actually death; it is easy to understand why her character would be accepting of his true character. While her impression seems much darker than his true character; with a life surrounded by death it is realistic to believe see would accept existence of a Reaper with ease.The romance of this story just goes to show what a talented author Young is for writing a heart stopping romance. Brennus and Avery offer a intense and swift romance carrying readers through the story effortlessly. Leaving a final question is it worth it all for the someone that you love.

    Shocking

    Couldn't believe this came from Samantha Young. I love her other books, but this one left me almost angry at the time wasted to read it.

    BREATH TAKING!

    Simply Breath taking! This novella was beautifully written. A young woman cares for the only family she has left, her ill aunt. She lost her family as a young girl and her aunt dropped everything to care for her. She tries to do what she can to keep her happy since she is so ill. Her aunt tells her to take time and enjoy herself with some friends. That's when the young woman meets one of deaths many helpers and falls for him. Samantha Young has a way of writing that is simply breath taking!! I recommend this novella to anyone who enjoys a love story with many possible endings!

    Review from Worn Pages and Dusty Shelves

    I'm sort of lukewarm about Drip Drop Teardrop. I can say I liked it, that it was short, and that I personally wouldn't read it again. I never really connected to the characters. Sure, I found Brennus sexy, but that's pretty much it. I didn't care much for Avery or her attitude and her friends that had a presence at the beginning utterly disappeared at the end. If it had possibly been longer, I could have learnt more about the characters, and I could have (possibly) swallowed Avery falling in love within a week. If only the week had been detailed fully! It's just, she meets a man that has been watching her in a club every time she's been there, she's attracted to the man, she is scared by the man, she is embarrassed by the mans scars, she realizes the man has been stalking her- Cue heavy panting. Actually, the more I think about it, the less I like it. I'm hard-pressed to give it a rating, but I did like the writing and the overall idea, so, three stars.

    Love Love Loved It

    Omg I loved this book. It was well written and rasy to just fall into. The entire time I felt like I actualy was the main character. I was captivated by the things she was, sad when she was etc. This book is well worth the short couple of hours it will take tread it.

    Nightmare Rarity chapter 25 (( LAST CHAPTER!))

    Rarity woke up in the Ponyville hospital, with Spike sitting in a chair across the room."Spikey-Wikey!" Rarity squeled, running over to Spike and started crying." Spike, how will they ever forgive me?!" She cried. Without waiting for an answer, she continued." I destroyed Ponyville twice, Commanded an army of Timberwolves and Changelings, set Sombra free, turned Celestia to stone, and nearly had Equestria destroyed!" Spike let her cry on his shoulder." Its okay, Rarity! It wasnt your fault!" He said, wiping away her tears." And plus, all of thats fixed." Oh, Spike!" She said, and gace him a kiss.(( not on the cheek, hint hint.)) Then they noticed the ither five had seen the whole thing. Spike and Rarity blushed." Rarity, its alright! We're still your PFFs!" Said AJ." Hey you know what this calls for?" Asked Pinkie." A party!" <p> weeks later... <p> " Rarity?" Spike said nervously." Yes?" She replied, batting her eyes." Will you dance with me?" He asked, blushing." Of course!" She said. They werent the only couple there. Fluttershy was dancing with Big Mcintosh, Twilight was dancing with Flash Century, and Dashie was dancing with Soarin. Of course, AJ got pretty mad when she saw Flutters and her brother kiss. And everypony lived happily ever after... until the next disaster, that is... THE END! Please give me ideas and suggestions on what i should write next! Thank you! Broken heart &hearts

    Short book=Short Review This is my first sampling of Samantha Y

    Short book=Short Review

    This is my first sampling of Samantha Young’s work and I am intrigued. Drip Drop Teardrop takes a new, interesting twist on the afterlife and I thought it was both original and in many ways refreshing.


    One of the themes in this book is the woman defending herself and not needing the man to protect her. Today in literature, particularly YA PNR, you see a lot of the girl getting into very, very bad fixes and her Prince Charming sweeping in on a white horse to save her. There’s none of that here and I’m still trying to figure out if that’s a bad thing or a good thing. On one hand, it was nice to see a heroine who didn’t need her man to rescue her when things got nasty, on the other, it would have been nicer to see Brennus show a little more protectiveness. I can appreciate that the author was trying to portray the strong female character who doesn’t need saving, but I wanted a little more proof that her significant other would do whatever it took to save her if it became necessary.


    The main character here is nineteen, but I think this book nudges the boundaries of YA a little too far. Yes, there were steamy parts in here I skipped (don’t judge me). But the most disturbing part for me was the backstory of Avery trading her virginity with her high school boyfriend (who was a total donkey’s rear end) in exchange for not accepting a position at a school dance. I just—she what?


    Other than my aforementioned concerns, I thought this story was well-written, interesting, and I would probably read the sequel. I am now curious about Young’s other books and I plan to start her other YA paranormal romance series soon!

    great short story!  all of us wished we were loved this much by

    great short story!  all of us wished we were loved this much by a man.  I realize it was a novella but it would have been nice to have learned a little bit more detail about WHY Brennus loved Avery all those years and details about their week together would have been nice too.  but overall, good story.
