I've read most of her books and I've loved each one but I'm just now starting this series. I absolutely LOVE this novella. Just this short book was tugging at my heart strings. I highly recommend this book.
Stranded by J.C. Valentine is the first book in her newly revamped Night Calls series. It is a quick read that flows well, although I felt the ending was a bit rushed, HOT, but rushed. Felix and Poppy were great characters that I was totally rooting for from the very beginning of this steamy romantic tale. Their encounter with each other affected them so deeply that it began to change their entire outlook on life, their lives, and how they were going about living them. It was quite poignant for a short story to have such a life-altering change on the characters. I will definitely be reading more in the series when I get a chance.
Valentine presents her story in a manner that you can relate to. This is a situation that you could plausibly find yourself in. And the characters don’t miraculously find themselves married after a whirlwind romance. It’s very refreshing to see a story like this. Not only that, but this story is quite well written. Valentine draws you in with her suspenseful and exciting storytelling. Everything is laid out clearly, plainly, and in an excitingly vivid manner. You can’t help but life this story with the characters. Now, I must say that there is very little character development in this novella, but that is part of its brilliance. The characters don’t know each other either. It’s the spur of the moment, unknown risks, and newness of the meeting that brings forth much of the excitement. Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review
