The-Adonis is a short story that really gets you thinking about that one that got away. The characters are believable; the story is compelling and nicely written so it’s engaging from beginning to end. I found the story unique, heartfelt and even funny at times. The chemistry between the characters shines and it just makes you feel sexy reading it.
I think this story definitely has the potential to be a full-length novel and I found myself not wanting it to end. So if you’re looking for a short provocative read with a unique plot or just something different, this is it.
About the Characters…
Theadonis, the heroine of this story, is a complex one. She shows strength and courage that not many people have, yet enough vulnerability to arouse compassion from those not so willing to give it in her situation. She’s a little quiet and unassuming, adding an element of mystery to her personality that is intriguing. I would love to see this short story as a novel so her character could be further developed and we could learn what’s really under the surface.
Our hero, Rob, is a very believable character. His reaction as he finds out what his past flame has been up to is completely convincing, although I would have loved to see him throw a big hissy fit. There’s nothing quite as entertaining as an alpha male in a hissy fit. His discomfort at the Grecian ball had me laughing out loud. While, his attempts at being cool and sophisticated were admirable, it was obvious he was way out of his element.
The chemistry between these two is heartfelt and I found myself rooting for them all the way.
This is a very entertaining and well-written short story that any lover of Erotic Romance will not want to miss out on. Compelling characters in a unique setting for an older-than-time regret most of us can relate to, will definitely made you glad you read it.
