Aww, it's Valentine's Day! And it's my anniversary! (For the paperwork--we ended up having to have a ceremony anyway because my mother threatened to cry/dismember me). Feel the love!
It's been a good week so far, the first episode of my serial story has gotten some great reviews.
At The Armchair Reader: I’m really excited about what is to come this first season of the serial. Devon seems like he can easily get into all kinds of trouble and Rio can always get him out. And the chemistry they have together is explosive. What I really loved was how funny I found this to be, mostly in tone. The point of view comes from both Devon and Rio, so we get a different variation on the scene depending on who is narrating, but what their voices both have in common is a kind of nonchalance for the violence they cause. That detachment struck me as funny for some reason, in a bit of a Tarantino way. And combined with the fact that everything Devon does is tinged with sex, made for a unique and well-written story. I’m just glad that it’s only the beginning!
And by Lisa at Attention Is Arbitrary: I was impressed by
the energy and excitement of the action scenes. The smoothness of Rio’s killer
confidence makes me want to be behind him in any gun battle. Another highlight
is the anticipation of a sexual encounter between Rio and Devon. Unfortunately
the steamy build up was better than the act itself. I’m not saying it was a
total let down, but I needed to ‘see’ more. That being said I realize this is a
serial and we can’t have it all too soon. The fact that I want to see
more gritty detail really says it all, right?
