No strings attached.
It’s not what I really want, but it's all he has to offer. He's filled with turmoil and heartache and regrets, but for two hours every Wednesday all he feels is me. How much I desire him, how desperate he makes me, how much I'd like things to be different between us. Real.
He used to be my best friend back before he got married. And now? Now, he’s a young widower. It'd be wrong on so many levels to expect something more from him. So I give him what he needs. But I know I can’t keep this up. I've already given him my body, my soul. I want him to have my heart. It might drive him away forever, but that’s a risk I’m forced to take.
Wednesday is an angsty romp told from dual points of view. If you’re in the mood for something quick and dirty, you’ve found it. Proceed at your own risk.
Sexy and Angsty Novella that you won't want to put down!
Wednesday is a short and sexy novella that blends the friends to lovers and best friend's sister tropes together with a bit of forbidden romance thrown in for good measure. I really enjoyed this quick read and found myself wrapped up in Shaw and Chloe's friendship with benefits story almost immediately. Telling the story from both of their points of views also helped paint a clearer picture of their emotional turmoil and gave insight into their decisions and behavior. My heart ached for both of them as they stumbled through their feelings for each other and the ramifications of their actions. Since it's a novella, we don't get a lot of back story or character development, but I thought there was a good mix of sexy times and angst and that the pacing was just right.
I did find Shaw's behavior a bit much at times and had a hard time believing that he would treat his best friend in such a cold way. I do understand that he was grieving and confused and that grief can make people act very differently, but his epiphany and actions at the end of the story gave me emotional whiplash. I also had some issues with Chloe and her willingness to submit to Shaw in every way just to keep him in her life. I wanted her to have more backbone and be unapologetic about it. I was rooting for them to get their happily ever after though, and the last chapters and epilogue showed me the sweeter side to Shaw that Chloe saw in him all along. Overall, Wednesday is an emotionally packed novella that you won't want to put down!
I’ve read almost all of Kendall’s books and usually love them but this one was my least favorite so far, I felt like the story drug on and wasn’t too exciting.
This book has it all from the moment you begin. It will surely keep you ready to turn the page. It is enticing, thrilling, erotic. It will have you emotional and angry, basically feeling all kinds of emotions. Yet still wishing these characters joy and hoping that they find the path leading towards one another. This book is an amazing read. Great job.
