A Lucy Review: Invisible by Iyana Jenna

Rating: 2 stars out of 5
Daniel Matthews lost someone dear in the past. When he sees a young man lose his fast food dinner to a couple of bullies, he ends up buying both of them a meal. To his surprise, Liam reminds Daniel a lot of his brother, gone too soon. But the feelings Liam rouses in Daniel are definitely not the same.
Daniel offers to take him home, but Liam lies about which house is his has no home. He has nothing. Or had … until Daniel.
This is a super short (14 pages) glimpse into the beginning of Daniel and Liam.  Liam is homeless and suffers the loss of a meal through bullies. Daniel feels pain at this and takes Liam to dinner.  There was definitely not enough of this to flesh out a full story.  In fact, we get only teasers about everything.  Why is Liam homeless? What happened to Ben, Daniel’s brother?  What happened to cause bruises? How did Liam find Daniel’s house? (Yes, Liam says he followed Daniel bit he’s on foot, Daniel’s in a car and Daniel himself says it’s quite far.)
There just wasn’t enough here for me to consider it a story.  It seemed like the outline for a story that was never finished.  This could have been great with a longer, more detailed version.
The cover is the generic JMS one for all the hot flash stories and so doesn’t have anything to do with this one in particular.

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.
