The Story Guy by Mary Ann Rivers

I will meet you on Wednesdays at noon in Celebration Park. Kissing Only

Meet Carrie West, a librarian, who seems to have a perfectly content life.
Until one day she just yearned for more.

Meet Brian Newburgh, a federal contracts attorney, who can only spare one hour of his time on Wednesdays, just for kissing.

One online personal ad later, they decided to meet.....just to kiss.
But ended up wanting more.

Mary Ann Rivers' novella is an engaging, captivating read.  The type of romance that sweeps you off your feet while managing to fit in real life, portraying real struggles of what it really means to love.       

Ms. Rivers has that unique writing style that makes each word sing out, simple words with layered meanings.  Poetic prose anyone?

"I have never been gladder for my own uncomplicated life, the simple love I've had from my family and friends, for my interesting daily work and the unencumbered lifestyle I created for myself.  I have room for this."

This is Carrie saying that what she had with Brian was worth the sacrifice but it sounds so much more with the author's own words.

"A story guy? 
Yeah, a good guy with a bad story doing something stupid.  Story guys are like life highlighters.  Your life is all these big blocks of gray text, and then a story guy comes in with a big ol' paragraph of neon pink so that when you flip back through your life, you can stop and remember all the important and interesting places."

And this was Brian, The Story Guy.

And did I tell you this novel is HOT, yup burning, sizzling hot.  And that was just the kissing part.

Read The Story Guy and you positively will be highlighting each word.  My kindle is nearly yellow now.  Looking forward to reading more from Mary Ann Rivers.

Rating/Review: ☕☕☕☕ 1/2 (4.5 cups, this romantic suspense will give new meaning to The First Wives Club)
You never know what you really would be getting when reading a Catherine Bybee book.  On the outside, each book can definitely hold its own as a great contemporary romance novel.  Read a little bit further, you get well-defined, multilayered characters and a romantic suspense in the making.
