Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5
Dan and Steve, two ships passing in the night, so to speak, find each other and a lucky penny before heading into a private airline-club room. Their encounter is brief yet intense, the attraction off the charts, but the lay, like the layover they’re both on, is all too short for either of their liking.
Fate, plus a little bit of luck, brought them together, but will they ever dock at the same port again?
Note: This short story was originally published in the charity collection, Love Is Proud.
Finders Keepers is a very short story by Rob Rosen that’s center’s around a brief but memorable meeting over a lucky penny, a quick hookup in an airport frequent flyer lounge and a connection that continues to strengthen without further ties. It begs the question almost about love at first lust and the truth about lucky pennies.
All in 11 pages.
Normally I do a bit of eye rolling over stories like these but Rob Rosen brings in his usual charm to the narrative, lovely characters, and yes, lots of sex. There’s no instant love but a more believable HFN which I really enjoyed.
In short, Finders Keepers: Hot Flash by Rob Rosen is a sweet, hot short romance for the holidays. One I recommend.
Cover art shows a half naked hot guy. Ok but says nothing about the story or characters which I always consider a fail for covers.
