Day 93 – The Calum by Xio Axelrod
So this is actually a novella, but it’s the only book I’ve been able to read yet from Axelrod.
I’m including it because she’s a great writer and this is a great read.
It may only be a novella, but it has a strong storyline and complex characters with interesting backstory. It’s fun and quirky, with a romance-themed hook, yet it’s also very sexy, emotionally deep and really touching.
I truly can’t wait to read more from this author. She has a great voice and an exciting energy to her writing. And that’s only in a novella!
Take a peek. You’ll be glad you did.
