Kyraryker’s quotes

"She thought it over, but couldn’t see any immediate loopholes other than the threat of her inner slut emerging, and she could darned well control that little bitch."— Susan Elizabeth Phillips

In Kelly's Corner by Roxie Rivera

In Kelly's Corner - Roxie Rivera

This book was so much better than I thought it would be.  I was prepared for a fanfiction/the crappy side of independent publishing novel and got so much more than my little jaded been disappointed too many times heart was expecting. 

The storyline of Bee dealing with two stalkers and Kelly wanting to protect her while training for fights to work off his father's debt was engaging and fast moving.  There are a ton of side characters that are completely compelling; I must know about them!  It does distract from the main storyline and make the reader feel pulled in a million different ways, especially since this is a pretty short read.  I feel like there could have been some George R.R. Martin book length numbers with all these characters.  (I'm aware there is a Russian Protector series where a lot of these characters get their story.  Bet your sweet ass I'm slapping down the green to read it as fast as I can)

A slight complaint with the ending and very contrived, didn't feel natural of Kelly and Bee's bodyguards thinking she made up the whole obsessed-penis-pictureing-up-and-down-the-block stalker. Really? Over protective Kelly, who has known Bee for YEARS, just decides that she is a manipulative liar face and leaves her completely alone?  Not buying it.

Other than that, quick, intriguing, magnetic side characters, good solid reading.

Excuse me while I go get my Russian on....
