Whisper (Aidan Falls Novella)
by Crystal Green
Coming January 20, 2015
“Confess What You’re Hiding , Show Who You Really Are, Meet Others Just Like You..."
That’s the promise of the social media app called TellTale, and shy new girl Carley Rios is drawn by its lure of finding friendship…and maybe even more than that. Since she dropped out of college, she’s been aimless and lost in Aidan Falls, a town where everyone seems so tight-knit.
When she comes across an anonymous, heartfelt confession on TellTale that seems to be about her, she feels a spark of hope. And when one sexy, sinful confession leads to another, she becomes swept up in a game of secret admirer. All signs point to her admirer being another newcomer in town, Micah, who’s quickly gaining a reputation as a lothario.
But Carley is about to find out that love and acceptance is sometimes only a heartbeat away—and in a place where you haven’t bothered to look until a whisper finally catches your attention…
I was instantly intrigued when I saw the blurb for Whisper and I went into it with high expectations. I mean, isn't there a time in everyone's life where they like someone and are too shy to admit it to their face?! Well the TellTale app sucked me in, and while it's a great concept, I wasn't in love with this novella.
Carley is the new girl in town and doesn't really know where she fits in the tight-knit town of Aidan Falls. She joins TellTale, the social media app where people confess their secrets and meet like-minded individuals, and it's on TellTale that she learns she has a secret admirer.
This is a super quick novella where Carley is trying to figure out who her secret admirer is, and when she finally does it's definitely not who she expected. I assumed that Whisper was going to be a full novella where we get Carley's entire story, and unfortunately that wasn't the case. Basically as soon as she finds out who her admirer is, the story ends.
Had I gotten another couple paragraphs with a simple HEA or even an HFN I would have been happy but I feel like it just kinda cut off before we could get to the good stuff. I'll probably check out Honeytrap, the first full length novel in the Aidan Falls series, but at this point I'm not really sure what to expect from it.
