Novelette & Short Story
Take a Picture was a fun and lighthearted read that kept me entertained! The characters feelings and conflicts were well described and I wanted to keep turning pages.
Troy was so sweet, caring, and protective over Ashlynn. At first, all he wanted to do was to get a "thousand dollar picture" of her, but he quickly learned that she was so much more than he had imagined. Ashlynn was so sweet, lighthearted, and witty. They were a perfect couple and they would have been the perfect picture together!
It is a really great read to curl up with and finish in about an hour. An hour well spent with smiles! My only complaint was that it was over to soon!
Chain Reaction was also a fun read, though Take a Picture was my favorite. It was shorter but it still kept me entertained and made me want to read Haunting Joy someday.
