Bad Night is an adult romance short story by Kelli Roberts. To clarify, a short story is shorter than a novella, usually less than 100 pages, most often less than 50.
I don’t normally read short stories like this one because quite honestly they are normally not worth reading. This one, however, caught my attention with the cover and then I realized, I had a read a book by this author before, which I guess is why Amazon suggested it to me in the first place.
Bad Night is basically a day in the life of a girl named Alison. I don’t want to reveal too much about the storyline and ruin the surprise for you but let’s just say it’s absolutely not going where you think it is.
Alison lands a great new job. She’s so happy and thinks everything in her life is going well. It’s her anniversary and she is going home early from work that day to prepare a special dinner for her and her boyfriend. She isn’t sure but she thinks he might pop the question that night.
She gets home to find out she wasn’t alone. She follows the strange noises she was hearing only to get one hell of a surprise.
Again I don’t want to ruin it for you, but I will say the end of the book makes the story! I never saw that coming, not in a million years.
I highly recommend this book. You can bang it out in no time, it really is a rather short read but well worth your time and considering it only cost a buck, you can’t go wrong.
I will admit, after reading this book, I might have changed my mind about trying out some short stories. This one really hit the mark.
Maybe there will be some other ones out there too so for now at least, I’m going to check out a few more shorties and I’ll let you know how it goes.
