I really enjoyed these three tales - each has a great sense of atmosphere, satisfying dialogue and a range of personalities which we have come to expect in such shorts, and would not realistically be found anywhere else. You can tell an author which has fun with her writing, and Kyla clearly has alot of fun - this is why we love to read their books. She has a real knack for punchy, satisfying dialogue and a good descriptive prose, with a perfect sense of timing - as one scene, one conversation and one incident leads to the next, it does so each time with a good, comfortable fluency; in writing, particularly short-story writing - as in stand-up or flash fiction - timing is everything, and Kyla nails it.
I suspect that she wrote the tales in the order they feature, as you can see her writing style subtly evolving with each, culminating in a lip-licking erotic thriller, which hints at, but doesn't quite prod at, a fetishist suggestion in the author's future work; something which I would very much like to see. The first, "Junk for Two", although a good read, lacks a little in the range of its descriptive vocabulary, something which improves to some extent; having said that, I do feel Kyla's overall writing will benefit as she develops as a wordsmith. Likewise, the punchy pace of this book is fun, but the sentences are perhaps a little too punchy, particularly in "Junk for Two" - I'd like to see them a little longer and more descriptive.Read more ›
This was surprisingly fun! Here, we have three stories that follow a similar theme, and while they are occasionally almost formulaic, it actually works well. You know what’s going to happen, but the characters don’t. This is far from perfect, but it’s also very promising – and just the right length.
I would like to thank the author and reader's house for a free copy in exchange of honest review.
I loved the writing it was very atmospheric and brilliantly paced. And the twists were very good.
The author really gets into the psyche and I'll definitely be reading more in the future.
4.5 because I wanted more about Phil!
