Lessons for Lewis (Larson Brothers 2) by Amber Kell

I found this novella very appealing, but sometime I had the feeling the author didn’t really plan the story beforehand, but wrote it like a brainstorming on a papersheet.

I can give you an example, right at the end, Lewis is agreeing with Kelly something, and just the next sentence, it was like they hadn’t even discussed it and maybe Lewis will allow her that same thing. It’s not really something ruining the whole story, but it was sometime disconcerting.

In any case, I really liked Lewis’s character, this dreamer of an artist, whose head most of the time is in the clouds more than attached to his neck. And who doesn’t seem able to stick to one decision, like when, at chapter one, he is trying to find a way to avoid John since he cannot have a relationship with a man (he is straight, or so he thinks) and a vampire (he is a werewolf and the two breeds don’t mix well), but then, after just a lunch together, they are ripping each other clothes off. And when John implies they should be discreet, Lewis kicks him off his bed since he doesn’t want to be a dirty little secret on the side: from not wanting a relationship to be outraged since he is not proposed one in less than 24 hours.

This is book 2 in the Larson Brothers series, and I have the feeling that Tam’s story holds the same nice spin on a werewolf/vampire paranormal romance; that is something you cannot deny to Amber Kell, she is good with her “you are my mate” novellas, they are quick and refreshing, like a glass of cold water in a hot summer day.
