      3.5 HEARTS--I'm fascinated with reading romances with main characters who find love after losing the love of their life.Morbid? Maybe.But to read about the internal struggles and obstacles of returning to the land of the living catches my eye.As does books with librarian main characters. This book has both, so reading this was a no-brainer for me.James is a popular science fiction writer who lost his spark. He's fifty-three and lost his partner of twenty-plus years. Though it has been a year, hi [...]

      I received this book as an ARC though NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book. I loved the romantic, almost soft mood to the story. I found James to be a relatable character, and I liked that, while he was still mourning his loss, that he was taking steps to move beyond his grief. I can't imagine losing someone like that, and I respected that James was working on not drowning in his heartbreak. I really liked David as well. He is a good man, and I loved seeing them [...]

      This was literally like an appetizer since unfortunately, it's only 34 pages. It was over before it started.Barely a sweet look at the start of a May December romance and a second, well deserved chance at love for both MC's.

      It has been hard for sci-fi writer James Murphy to move on since the death of his partner a year ago. But at the urging of his agent, he volunteered for a weekly storytime at a local library as a way to start socializing again. This is where he meets the children’s librarian, David.David is twenty-five years younger and has the exuberance that James was attracted to. What started out as friendship turns into romance. Will James be able to leave the past behind and moved on to a future with a p [...]

      While this short read was well-written and somewhat entertaining, it really didn't make me *feel* anything.Yes, I was sorry to hear about the death of James' long-term partner, Paul, but I didn't get enough in-depth information to actually feel the loss in any real sense.And yes, David, the librarian seemed like a nice guy, with his own loss of a partner, from when his older partner/professor simply leaves for another man. But again, not enough backstory was provided to feel much anything there, [...]

      After mourning the loss of his partner, James Murphy is trying to get back out into the world. He decided to sign up for Storytime for children at the local library. On his first day, he meets David, the librarian. It is not long before James feels a connection with the David, finding him easy to talk to and would like to spend more time with him. James is worried about the friendship turning into something more, not only because of the loss of his partner, but also there is a 25 year age gap be [...]

      Read the full review on Bookaholics Not-So-Anonymous.Note: This ARC was provided by Less Than Three Press in exchange for an honest review.Storytime is a short story from author K. Lynn and is a very fast read about author James Murphy and librarian David (no last name mentioned), who meet and strike up a friendship that provides an opportunity for something more. Even after a year from the time his partner died, James is still having difficulty moving on professionally and personally. David was [...]

      It was okay I think. James and Dàvid moved too fast IMO.And the ending , well, let's sày, I'm not satisfied .

      * I received an advanced copy of this novella in exchange for a fair and honest review. *I really enjoy K. Lynn's short stories, and this one was no different! She has a great way with words, and her novellas are always very sweet. This one, about a man trying to find his way back into the world after the loss of his husband, was really lovely. James is a writer, but hasn't been able to find any interest in writing since his partner died suddenly last year. At the suggestion of his agent, he sta [...]

      In his first attempt to get out of the house and move on with his life after the death of his partner a year ago, author James Murphy decides to volunteer for storytime at his local library. It’s not long before he develops a fascination with the children’s librarian, David, who just happens to be the spitting image of his dead lover. The fascination and attraction is mutual and the two start dating.Storytime is well-written, but very short and not really in-depth. It’s pretty much just a [...]

      Short and pretty sweet, there’s not really a lot to be said about this little story. James is likeable, David is cute and flirty without being overly pushy and their relationship moves swiftly but with plenty of nice moments.However, this is a quick and fairly shallow tale that doesn’t really delve into the emotions of either character. I ended up feeling like James was moving on a little too fast and I really didn’t like the idea that David looked like a younger Paul (the ex-partner), whi [...]

By the suggestion of his agent he ventures out and decides to volunteer at a library for storytime. While there he meets David the man in charge. They get to know each other and have a friendly banter but James isn’t sure if it’s more than just friendly or if David is hitting on him.I honestly don’t know where to start or what to say about Storytime except it is definitely a s [...]

      J'ai reçu cette ARC par NetGalley. Merci pour votre confiance.Petite nouvelle mettant en scène un bibliothécaire et un écrivain hanté par la mort de son partenaire, elle est classique dans sa forme, peut-être un peu trop courte. Après la rencontre, nous observons les liens se tisser entre les deux personnages jusqu'à leur premier rendez-vous. Tout se passe bien, ça clique instantanément entre eux. Peut-être un peu trop facilement, mais en fait, il y a tout de même un maximum que l'on [...]

      Storytime is a short, sweet story by K. Lynn. Middle-aged James Murphy is mourning his partner. He decides to get involved in the children's program at the local library, just to get out of the house. There he meets David, the children's librarian. The story's setting is realistic as a library, which is refreshing. You wouldn't think it would matter, but there's some weird stuff out there. James and David are both enjoyable people. This is a May-December Romance that comes across as sweet and fu [...]

      My Review:On the surface, this book was fine. The writing worked and the story kept my attention. BUT it's super, super shortd what's missing from the story is the emotion. While I somewhat enjoyed reading James and David's story, I never did emotionally engage with them. It was like reading a narrative where I could clap and say, "well done", but five minutes later, just not care. All the surface story telling is there, but there's nothing deep in the story to let the reader connect and root fo [...]

      Reviewed for Prism Book Alliance Loss comes in many forms. The death of a loved is certainly the most permanent -- and gut-wrenching -- but sometimes similar pain is enough over which to create a bond. That is the situation James and David find themselves facing in Storytime. For full review see Prism Book Alliance prismbookalliance/?pos
