A Jeri Review: A Way with Words (Memories with The Breakfast Club [Kindle Worlds]) by Lane Hayes

Rating: 4 stars out of 5

I don’t always love novellas. Only because I think it is difficult to tell a compelling story in fewer than 200 pages. BUT, it can be done. And Lane Hayes did. It helped that it was an opposites attract story set in NYC for me. Because I KNOW guys like Tony. Tight knit big giant Italian families are beginning to get more scarce, but they are out there. And I know them. So nothing this family did or said was much of a shocker to me.

Remy is the opposite of Tony. Kind of quiet, artsy, open book guy trying to make it on his own in the city by himself. He is willing to wait for Tony to come out of the closet. But in the mean time, he basically goes back into the closet for him.

Remy was patient and kind with Tony which was so refreshing. He didn’t give him an ultimatum because he knew that coming out is intensely personal. Remy gave him the time and space to do that.

Being that it was a novella it did have a neat little wrap up to the story line with pretty much no drama. But hey, we all need a happy little ending sometimes.

Cover art is relevant, eye-catching and lovely.

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
