Okay, the month of June is absolutely insane for me so to keep up with my very overloaded schedule and goals list, I will be featuring short stories. Since most romance books can be seen as a short story, there was a criteria that had to be met. Each one had to be under 80 pages. Truly a quick read which is exactly what Mathematical Kisses by A.L. Wade is.
The plot of this 25 page story is – Robin Leslie has a pretty unique job: she is the cover wife of a spy. Sounds glamorous, right? It’s not. Day after day of playing the housewife in a house that isn’t really hers, for a husband she isn’t really married to.
Not that pretending to be married to Elliot Leslie, brilliant mathematician, doesn’t have its perks. He’s a hot silver fox, a playful flirt, affectionate—even if it is fake—and amazing in bed.
But Robin yearns for a life that is a little more real. And it takes her almost losing everything to realize the life she’s been living might not be as staged as she thought.
My View– This story packed the punch of a longer story in very few pages. The lust, the suspense and sappy ending were all there. Absolutely awesome spy romantic short story and a perfect fix on a tight schedule.
… and now I will start questioning everything around me…
