    Good, but Needed MORE . Loosely Concluded.

    ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ FOUR-STAR ✩ REVIEW ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ > > Judging a Book by it's Cover < < Not a big fan of the copy/paste layered looking cover. The font choice is good, but color should have been stronger to stand out better. Synopsis left me on the fence, but I do like to support debut authors and at under 100 pages, I figured I did not have too much to lose by giving it a shot. > > Looking Deeper < < POV ~> First-person. First person narrative style from Derrick's perspective. He's a Physics teacher crushing on a Starbucks barista. Since first laying eyes on the "punk rock" barista, as his best friend Bryant calls Alex, Derrick has made the coffee shop a part of his daily routine. But an eager and overly enthusiastic dinner proposal stuns Alex just long enough to assume it was a flat-out dismissal. Derrick then learns that Alex is mute and the silence was not so much a shunning and makes it a goal to better be able to communicate with him. The structure starts out a little stiff, but improves as the story moves along. The timeline hops and skips forward to give this barely 50 page novelette more of a suggested time line. The chemistry is mostly friendly with some overtures, flirting, and innuendo. One fairly sexy little scene. Dialogue and interaction is good. The conflicting element was unimpressive, as was it's resolve. Predictability was a non-issue. The conclusion was NOT solid are barely enough to consider being called an implied HEA or HFN. It was much more a "to be continued", in my opinion. I think if this story were reworked into something closer to 120 - 180 pages that it would be much more fulfilling and more "future" could be provided to satisfy the reader's curiosity about what becomes of his schooling, dreams of becoming a vet, living arrangements, and more. If it were lengthened and added to, I would suggest it as I did enjoy the characters and their compatible nature. .
