Short Stories

Hunger For Truth: A Short Story by Tabitha Levin

A secret the government doesn't want you to know.
Food that has become so scarce that people will kill you for it.
A mother forced to rescue her adult son. 

In a not so distant future where danger lurks around every corner people are not always what they seem. Especially since food is so scarce that people will kill you for it just to feed their family.

When a group of renegades take Josie's son and hold him captive it's her mission to rescue him. Will they reach him in time? And why did they take him in the first place? 

Perhaps he knows more than he is letting on?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story seems good. It's original, clever, interesting. I like the little twist at the end. But, then it just stops. There's nothing else. It seemed like almost a waste of reading becuase its really about only a chapter of a story. I was disappointed with the end. But, I may pick up the next one just to see where it leads. If you like short stories, alternate history or reality's, then try this. You may like it.

MINE FOR TONIGHT: Book One - The Billionaire's Obsession by JS Scott

Down on her luck, nursing student and full-time waitress Kara Foster gets a massive blow to her already desperate financial situation that will surely find her living on the streets. Needing nothing less than a miracle to save her, Kara gets rescue from an unknown, unlikely and overwhelming source. Billionaire Simon Hudson makes her an offer that is impossible to refuse, but terrifying to accept from a man that she's never met. Will the handsome, alpha billionaire really be a solution to her problems, or will he end up being a major complication and a danger to her emotional sanity? 

Reclusive billionaire Simon Hudson would rather be behind a computer creating computer games than rubbing elbows with the elite and he knows exactly what he wants...until he meets Kara Foster. Something about Kara touches Simon in ways he's never experienced and definitely doesn't like. For over a year, Simon watches over Kara, but stubbornly refuses to admit his desire to possess her, not even to himself. But when she ends up in a situation that could very well be her destruction, Simon steps up to help her, not realizing that in saving Kara, he might very well be salvaging his own soul.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ok, at first, I'll admit, I was creeped out by Simon's "stalking" of Kara. He was a little overbearing and demanding, yet gentle and caring. But, the way he completely took care of her, was sweet. I liked that Kara wasn't just a simpering girl, soaking up all the "sugar daddyness" of the situation. She tried to not accept, but couldn't hold out past her own body. It's a sexy short story, doesn't take long to read through it at all. Definitely worth picking up for free.
