Reviewing eARC from Author
Everything changed the moment he found her…
Cal Remus is in love.
But the object of his affection barely acknowledges his existence. Worse: She acts like he’s the dirt sticking to the bottom of her shoe. Weaker men might give up. But not Cal. Hell no, he loves a good challenge and Ariana Skyee has made this the most intriguing challenge of all.
Having read his father’s confidential military files, Cal should be concerned about the seemingly fragile new world order on Planet Novo and the events back on Earth. But he’s distracted.
Securing Arianas love is his number one priority.
He’s going to win her heart, or die trying.
Special note from the author:
This short story is narrated solely from Cal Remus’ point of view, and it depicts the events leading up to the introduction of ‘The Calling.’ That is; the events that pre-date True Calling, Book 1 in the series. This can be read as a stand-alone story. However, if you are planning on reading the True Calling series, I recommend that you read the titles in the following sequence:
True Calling – Book 1
Lovestruck – Short Story
Beyond Reach – Book 2
Light of a Thousand Stars – Novella
Destiny Rising – Book 3
Ummm…yeah so Lovestruck by Siobhan Davis is a quick, short story (like only 30-40 pages) told from Cal’s point of view and set just before the Calling in book one.
*Note: If you have not read book one True Calling, read this review at your own risk as there will be minor spoilers.
*Another Note 😉 Since this is a SHORT story, my review will also be short.
So you know how I keep saying something is off with Cal? That I just don’t fully trust him? Well….I was right. Something is off and you MUST read this short to get the full of it!
Cal is tired of going from one girl to the next and then he sets his sight on Ariana Skyee, a fellow cadet at the training academy, yet she doesn’t see him. And when she does she ignores him or insults him. As a result he becomes a tiny bit obsessed….
I’m hiding carefully in the shadows at the edge of Ariana’s house, secretly watching her. I come here most nights, though she has no idea that I do.
So yeah…can we say stalker?!
What I really liked about this story is that we do get to see inside Cal’s head. It’s nice to get other POV in a story, it gives the characters more character 😉 Also can I just say I love Ben, Cal’s BFF?! He’s awesome and definitely a moral compass for our Cal.
Overall if you enjoy the True Calling series, than this short is a must. It gives you a little insight into Cal and his odd behavior, specifically going into Beyond Reach. I really enjoyed getting into Cal’s head and wish it could’ve been a little longer. Can’t wait for more from this series!
