Simone Kahan’s is a little bit of a voyeur, watching Elliott Anderson from her office window. Each new bimbo comes and goes, all blonde, and never more than twice. Watching him have sex is the highlight of her long evenings until one evening Elliott spanks his tryst and they have words. The spanking calls to the darker side of Simone’s lust. When they meet up in the elevator, Simone entices Elliott to take her to a party, where she both intrigues him and repels him.
Elliott never gives into his darker side. He only goes out with women once or twice and they are all pretty much blonde bimbos. Simone is different with her dark pixie haircut and glittering blue eyes. When the evening ends with a harsh kiss, Elliott runs from what he has vowed he can’t have.
This was a short introduction in the Every Part of You serialized series of five books. It is a brief brushing of the senses that make you want to continue to the next book without delay to see where this goes. There are not big revelations in this one, but just enough hints to make you desire more, to look deeper, to find the dark spaces that reside in these two hearts.
Unfortunately, I am not a fan of serials. If I wasn’t reviewing them I probably would not have bought this book at $1.99. If the prices come down or they bundle the five books into a reasonable price, I might be more inclined to purchase it myself.
I am marking the first part of this serial as contemporary, but each installment has a little different focus and I will elaborate when we get there.
What are your thoughts on serial romances? Short stories hard to get into?
