“I can’t lose her. You don’t understand how important she is to me,” I ramble. I guess I’m in shock because all I can think about is the sight of all that blood over Katrina’s beautiful face. “She’s my world. I can’t lose her.”

    3.5 stars:  TOO CLOSE is a prequel novella to Lilliana Anderson¿

    3.5 stars:  TOO CLOSE is a prequel novella to Lilliana Anderson’s Beautiful series told from David’s POV. The reader is taken on a journey that begins when David and Katrina first met, through their years together in elementary and high school, and David’s growing love for the young woman he has always wanted to call his own. His need to protect Trina at all costs forces a wall between the friends who are too close and often mistaken for a couple.
    The reader discovers that David believes himself unworthy of a loving relationship and the only woman he has ever loved sees something different. His father was and is a major disappointment and harsh words from a parent have left emotional scars on David’s ego. Although he considers himself non-relationship material, he has been in a life long relationship with his best friend Katrina and the woman that he loves-only David and Katrina are too stubborn to admit that what each other wants and needs-is to be in a relationship with the other.
    The story follows David and Trina’s relationships with other people; their ups and downs; their sorrow and heartbreak. But all along, David knows that the only woman for him is Trina but telling her is more difficult than he ever thought. In the end, it may be too late, when Trina’s life and safety hang in the balance and she begins to push everyone away including David.
    Too Close is a short story that covers a few of the high and low points in David and Trina’s early relationship and allows the reader to get inside the mind of a man who loves the one woman of whom he believes he is unworthy.
    The writing is simple and because most of the ‘drama’ in their early relationship occurs during their high school years, the story reads like a young adult novel with all the hallmarks of jealousy, angst, mistaken beliefs and broken hearts. And like many stories from the New Adult genre, there is always a history between the couple that must be acknowledged before any chance at future happiness can be addressed.
