This story is a short one. There are no love scenes so the heat meter for this story is a 1 at best. Unfortunately, there were no emotions to this story. Normally when I read a romance novel, I can feel the character’s emotions. But I could not feel the pain that Tye was supposedly going through. This story was almost told matter-of-factly. I was hoping to shed some tears while reading this, but I never did. In conclusion, I am giving this short story 1 Tea Cup because there needed to be more emotional description.
On a positive note, I could easily predict that Tye and Kelly would end up together, which they did, so this story does have a happy ending.
1 Tea Cup!
