This was such a short story, but wow did it have everything that makes a great read! Kami is strong in her conviction to find a man who will make her his only love. While Ian is expected to marry three spouses because he's very rich, and the world in stricken with poverty, his heart belongs to Kami. Will love provide a way for the two to be together, even across dimensions? This story didn't contain harsh language or sex, but it had the intensity to carry it through. Kudos for not using those crutches to complete such a fantastic read! I'll follow Ms Wilson to check out her other books too. I rated this a 4... I would like to have seen more of Ian's struggle to come up with his solution instead of hearing it at the end.
Discard the intro publisher details and the prologue of another book and One For Kami is 37 pages long, therefore a quick read. The plot line is predictable but don’t let that put you off; otherwise you will miss the chance to enjoy a well presented story, which is beautifully written. Ms. Wilson’s offers vivid settings for both her worlds without quite defining either the time period or the exact place those worlds are set in… Until the very end that is when you discover the hero and heroine end up in Chicago. It takes tight writing to create a fully formed story with an amazing amount of detail in thirty-seven pages to maintain the forward flow of the story and Ms. Wilson manages this with deceptive ease. Rules, regulations, trials and tribulations are all presented in a believable manner. Emotions vary from raw pain to the integrity of upholding beliefs to the highs of true love and filled in the characters personalities to a depth that is surprising in such a short story. The supporting cast also came across as three-D personalities. There is no explicit sex, or swearing in One For Kami, but the story is full of it’s own kind of tensions and, in my humble opinion, stronger for it. If you enjoy fantasy, then consider, One For Kami. If you enjoy sweet romance, then this will fit your reading requirements. And if you enjoy having a quick read, then this book is worth picking up. And if you want all three in one, then why not pick up One For Kami? For lovers of a good fantasy read, Ms. Wilson is an author to look out for.
The summary basically sums it up, which leads to my only complaint--I wish it was longer! Kami can't stand the thought of being the first of three wives because what if Ian loves another better? She decides to sacrifice it all and leave, much to his dismay. She has some real possibilities in this new dimension, but realizes that real and true feelings are hard to get rid of. At first, I thought Kami was acting a bit rash. If she's the first, chances are, he'll love her the best, but when I really thought about it, that would be easier said than done. If I were in her shoes, I'd probably feel the same way. I loved the way it ended. Content: no language or violence; a gay character who flirts with another man, a married man pursuing a single woman; I would consider it clean.
Kami loves Ian, but didn't realize he was one of the wealthy and was bound buy law to wed three wives to eliminate poverty. And there was no way she could stand to see him with someone else much less two someone elses. She takes drastic measures and leaves for another dimension, determined to find a man that will want only her. But what she finds out isn't quite what she expected. And Ian had plans of his own. I enjoyed this short love story and read it during lunch time. It left me smiling for a long time. It's a clean read and suitable for YA or NA. I think Ms. Wilson could have expounded on Ian's side of the story a bit more and made it longer and a little more whole. But I'd give it 4.5 stars if I could! I loved it and highly recommend it!~
