B L U R B :
Sam Crowe lives a quiet life. He’s a freelance journalist and sometimes fiction writer. His world is turned upside down when love lands on his doorstep—literally, while cursing up a G-rated storm. Son of a fish, indeed. Casey Sanders doesn’t know whether it’s good luck or bad when he slips and falls on the icy steps of his apartment building, but the hero who comes to his rescue is worth the discomfort.
Their attraction is instant, but Sam is certain Casey’s flirtation and kind words are a result of the pain medication. But Casey is persistent and won’t give up until he has what he wants. And what he wants is Sam.

This is an amazing book! I am trying to ignore the fact that this is a first time published book for this author. That’s right – Kenzie Cade is a fledgling author; and wow! She is going to soar!! I am sooooo looking forward to more books from this very promising new author.
It is only a little book – just some 32 pages, but she has got the timing and weight of the romance in this book just perfect. So many times I pick up a book and it is way too much, way too soon – yes, I’m talkin bout sex, baby. 😉 I cannot connect with the guys if they get together too soon – it really is just words on paper to me. Even if the book carries on for 300 plus pages – the kapow has gone. I need to feel for the characters before I can give a toss about them being together. Weird on my part? Probably. So how does an author manage to achieve this connection (and then some!) in a book of only 32 pages? Read “Son of a Fish” and you will see how!
Sam meets Casey after Casey takes a fall and needs some help. Each guy thinks the other guy is pretty cute. Feelers are put out by asking some questions about any girlfriends in the hopes that the other guy is gay. Result! No girlfriends. The physical attraction is instantaneous but in a short space of time the guys actually get to know enough about eachother for the connection to be more than just physical. And I, the reader, was totally on board and invested in their burgeoning relationship. It was believable. It felt real. A finely crafted short story indeed. And that is pretty much all I can tell you other than….
I cannot recommend this book highly enough! Here’s hoping the entire Mended collection is as good. Go. Buy the Book!
