You can't go wrong with a romantic serial that reads like a diary and combines wit and love ;o)
My opinion of Her Confessional, part 1
With a very easygoing style, the story flows seamlessly like Sarah is talking directly to you in a friendly conversation. I liked it a lot. It felt natural, funny and honest. I quickly became ensnared in her recount of her gorgeous, chubby self, her job, her crush on her best friend who happens to be kind, handsome and sweet. As he's also a talented actor, Sarah lets us know all the details of how he finally became famous. Those details go back and forth in time so it makes for a very dynamic storytelling.
The good, friendly times between the characters felt nice and made me smile. Whereas the passionate times made my heart throb, there was emotional friction as well that pulled at the strings of that very heart. Sarah is fully in love with a man who's unattainable but they still have to work together. What a wonderful mess to read, right? ;o)
For a short story, the characters and their motivations are fully developed. The story is well written, sexy, romantic even, and it really arouses an emotional response. I'm looking forward to reading the next installment to find out if this couple has any future against the mayhem of Hollywood's public life.
