Sally is a self-confessed player and party girl. Her life revolves around fun nights out, casual encounters and no emotional attachments other than with her best friend and colleague, Becky. When she is faced with a ghost from her past – Gareth – all the walls she’s carefully constructed around herself fall apart, revealing old wounds she thought had healed a long time ago. He wants a second chance, and she’s shocked to find that maybe she’s not as over him as she would want. Meanwhile, her current suitor, Becky and Sally’s charismatic manager, Mark, is keen to take their casual relationship to the next level.
Sally’s uncomplicated life is about to become very messy indeed.
This novella is a stand-alone follow-up to The Rebound List, which focuses on Becky’s journey– can be read as a standalone / out of order!
🌟🌟🌟🌟 REVIEW by Katie
Sally was a short read with an unusual twist at the end. I believe that this book features characters from another of this author’s book which I haven’t read but saying that I completely understood what was going on. I did enjoy the story, it was fast paced and a good plot however I was a little surprised by the twist at the end – I’m not sure how it fitted into what had already happened in the story.
I found it harder to connect with the characters because of it being a shorter story and I wonder if I may have benefited from reading the Rebound List first. I did like Sally though, I thought she was a funny, down to earth character who was happy to enjoy life the way it was – it’s not until a little further into the story where I started to understand exactly why Sally was so reluctant to move her relationship with Mark.
I have read a few books by Hedonist Six and one of the things that I really enjoy is how real the characters feel. Although I may not have connected with the ones in this story it still enjoyed reading it! If you are a romance fan and are looking for a short read with an unusual plot twist then I recommended this book!
ABOUT HEDONIST SIX
Call me “H.” or Hedonist if you prefer. I’m a Romance writer based in London and I’ve always been a dreamer, though it didn’t occur to me to write down the stories I kept dreaming up until 2012. You’ll not find flowery language and poetry in my work. What you will find though is believable characters, none of whom perfect, going through life and trying to find happiness. Just like the rest of us.
I first started writing because I craved to see more of “my kind of books” on the shelves. In any scenario, you’ll find me rooting for the underdog. The (emotionally) scarred hero who hasn’t really had much (or any) luck in love. The shy office worker who wants to pursue the man of her dreams, but hasn’t quite mustered the courage yet. All my characters are beautifully flawed and messed up, in a way that makes them perfect for one another.
