Smashwords book reviews by Melissa Stevens

  • You're Right, My Love on June 09, 2013

    A decent first story, but it needs some revision. A lot of mixed tenses, from past to present and back again. The story itself was intriguing but I felt it got lost in too much information. Perspective was a little strange, told from the point of view of an adult male and a 12yo girl. Not bad, just not my thing.
