Strange Little Band by Nancy Brauer and Vanessa Brooks product Read This

"Going to Hell in a handbasket & loving the ride!"

Strange Little Band is an engrossing love/hate story set in the heart of a cold-hearted megacorp.  The main players, Shane, an alien half-breed, and Addison, a psychic, are themselves both the players and the played in the elaborate game The Triptych Corporation is playing.

While I, too, would like to see more of the science that makes Triptych run, I find the interpersonal relationships more than enough to drive the story.  Neither Addison nor Shane are likeable people, and yet, living their lives vicariously through the story, they become sympathetic characters: they’re well-written, believable, and engaging.

The chapters are a little short, but compact, packing a lot of emotion and action into the short updates.  I found myself clicking “next” again and again.  The scenes with sexual overtones are intensely written, and, frankly, hot.  Overall, the writing is smooth and engaging.

I’d like to see a little more of the world Shane & Addison live in, but that’s my only complaint so far (and, as I’ve only read through the end of Chapter 5, might change later in the story).  This is my kind of romance story – no predestination and very little chance of a happily ever after, but a lot of fun getting there.
