THE NEMESIS by Mel Spenser

Jimmy is visiting Sarah and helps her run a game booth for small children at a festival for people who don’t celebrate Halloween. Jimmy sees a most attractive man and is thrilled when they meet again later at another party.

This story is actually about Jimmy and the extremely yummy man he becomes interested in. But the first third of the story is an annoying and deceptive beginning with MF situation and the reader doesn’t find out they’re cousins for ages. Also most of the description about the game and booth is totally unnecessary to the real story. The set up could be cut considerably and still the important information would be given. Then there would have been enough words left to increase the romance and drama of the true story. The romance is more hinted at than described and the sex scene is mild and brief. An extra thousand words devoted to the development of the romance would have made this a much more enticing read.

However, Jimmy is a fun character and it would be good to read a follow-up story on what happens next with Sarah. There is also some nice tension about Mr. Cute.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
