Like the Wind by J. Adams, Novelette Review
Blurb from the novelette:
Mariah Kennedy and Mason Malone have been best friends since high school. And she has loved him for that long. Afraid to share her feelings with him, she buries them inside, hoping to one day find the courage to admit what is in her heart.
To Mason, Mariah is like the wind, a force blowing around him that he secretly wishes he could hold onto. Having kept his feelings for her hidden for years, he finally decides to confess his love for her.
Then something happens that makes them both wish they had not waited so long to act on a love that carries the force of a hurricane–a love forever in motion, and powerful enough to endure forever.
I am a big fan of J. Adams. She always seems to pack an emotional punch into her novellas and she did not disappoint with Like the Wind! Best friends who secretly love each other, too afraid to confess for fear of rejection or ruining their relationship. It seemed plausible and the characters were likeable as well. The only reason I took one star off is for the cover. I am sorry Ms. Adams, but the cover is just a bit creepy to me! The story is great and if you don't have much time, this is just the length! Four stars!
You can pick up Like the Wind via Amazon.
