Review: Rebound

Reviewed by Shelly

This was a fun, short by new-to-me author Sabrina York. When I initially read the blurb I was intrigued because I’m a sucker for unrequited lust/ like/ love, then *poof* like magic everyone is in-love. This story is a good telling of that. Having just found her boyfriend sexing up her employee (while at work) Kristi Cross’s week can’t get any worse — or can it? Getting out of town and away from her problems for the weekend, Kristi heads down to the house that she and her friends share.

Of all people to be at the house, her college crush Cameron Jackson is there for his weekend getaway. There’s not going to be a lot of stress though because Kristi knows that she’s not Cam’s type… until he suggests a game of Hearts and the prize is a kiss! Umm, seriously who can resist that? Kristi already knows she can’t resist Cam’s suggestion.

Other than Kristi jumping from one man’s bed right into another, she was very likable; her sarcastic humor was something that I completely enjoyed. Yes, she’s curvy but she wasn’t too self-conscious of that, at least not any more than any other girl would be when they know the type of woman the guy they’re interested normally goes out with. But what I liked the best was Cam’s POV; it’s rare that I’ll read more of the guy’s angle than the girl’s — refreshing and sexy, yeah those words totally describe what Cam was feeling and thinking. I adored these two as a couple and the lusting was pleasantly lush. For such a short story, York did a lot in conveying strong emotions not just sex sex sex. It was definitely enough for me to look forward to the next story.

There are some secondary characters that I would love to know more about especially ‘doesn’t have a job playboy’ Lane and his ex-wife who’s also Kristi’s business partner.

Happy Reading folks!
