*I received an ARC copy of La Cala in exchange for an honest review.*
by N. Wood
Genre: M/M Romance
Length: 54 pages (novella)
When Lance McCarthy chose Ibiza for his holiday destination, he didn't expect to spend the week with Malachy Walsh, an Irish man dressed in blue striped pyjamas.
La Cala is an erotic short story that may well bring a smile to your face and a tear to your eye.
When I was offered the chance to review another ARC for Ms. Wood, I jumped at it. Once again, she doesn't disappoint. This male/male romance novella is great for an afternoon escape, and will leave you reflecting on your own relationships when you finish reading it.
Lance and Malachy (pronounced Mal-ah-key) are two single gay men who happen to cross paths while on vacation on the island of Ibiza. The story is told from Lance's point of view which allows us to fall for Malachy right along with him. Over the course of a week, they become well acquainted with each other, spending their final day in a hidden cove.
In true Wood form, not only do you get to enjoy her witty, fun banter between her characters, you can also expect some steamy love scenes. The way she writes her slash, its no wonder so many woman secretly (and not so secretly) enjoy the genre. But more than the physical connection Wood creates, is her ability to make a romance blossom before your eyes. Her writing is a perfect balance of romantic and hot.
There were minor errors in editing, but not enough to detract me from the enjoyment of this tale. It definitely earns five butterflies from me, and an urgent recommendation that you get a copy for yourself!
