Mr. Blakely is a new short story/novella offering from K Webster and for those who like something steamy, you won’t be disappointed. I have read a lot of K Webster’s books and admit she is definitely a favourite of mine. For me I know when I pick up one of her books I’ll be in for a good ride, whether its one of her new adult fictions or something hot and saucy like Mr. Blakely.
Designed to be read in an hour or so, these short novellas pack a nice punch. The long drawn out scenes are condensed but not in a way you feel the story is being sacrificed. Mr Blakely took me around an hour to read and I literally loved it. I am not the biggest fan of short stories and openly admit that in those I’ve reviewed before, but K Webster has got just the right amount of story and intimate moments in this book. I didn’t feel over shadowed by the hot scenes like with some authors. In fact, I felt like I had a good grasp of the dynamics of Quinn and his sons and how much be needed Ava in his life.
Unlike with many older man/younger girl stories I also was glad there wasn’t the constant ‘daddy’/’little girl’ stuff. Which if I’m honesty can be a bit ‘weird’ and off putting sometimes in these books. Ava was legal and she didn’t come across as too immature. In fact I would say she was exceptionally grown for her age and it was her innocence that gave her that younger edge. Also, Quinn didn’t come across as a dirty old man! I found him attractive, appealing and could see how these two had forged a relationship. Even if it does hint on the taboo side of things.
Over all, I really enjoyed Mr Blakely. For those who love a short/novella with a hot couple and a slightly taboo subject (Plus K Webster’s writing style as that’s brilliant anyway) then you need to check this book out. The only reason this is a 3.5 star read for me is simply because novellas aren’t my thing and I picked this up without reading the synopsis.
