Smashwords book reviews by Nikki Godwin

  • Not Letting Go on Dec. 08, 2015

    I don't normally read works this short, but this was the top result on Amazon when I searched for YA LGBT, and it was free, so I figured why not give it a chance. Things moved a little fast, which was expected for a short story, but the emotion and connection between characters were well-captured. If Danni Keane's aim was to leave her readers wanting more with these characters, she accomplished her goal! I'm definitely excited to see where Josh & Bradley go from here and how Josh's life plays out after the death of his father and the emotional aftermath. Definitely an author I'm going to keep an eye on! :)
