Review: The Story Guy by Marry Ann Rivers

In this eBook original novella, Mary Ann Rivers introduces a soulful and sexy tale of courage, sacrifice, and love.

I will meet you on Wednesdays at noon in Celebration Park. Kissing only.

Carrie West is happy with her life... isn’t she? But when she sees this provocative online ad, the thirtysomething librarian can’t help but be tempted. After all, the photo of the anonymous poster is far too attractive to ignore. And when Wednesday finally arrives, it brings a first kiss that’s hotter than any she’s ever imagined.

Brian Newburgh is an attorney, but there’s more to his life... that he won't share with Carrie. Determined to have more than just Wednesdays, Carrie embarks on a quest to learn Brian’s story, certain that he will be worth the cost. But is she ready to gamble her heart on a man who just might be The One... even though she has no idea how their love story will end?


My Review
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
“Story guys are like life highlighters. Your life is all these big blocks of gray text, and then a story guy comes in with a big ol’ paragraph of neon pink so that when you flip back through your life, you can stop and remember all the important and interesting places.”
I will meet you on Wednesdays at noon in Celebration Park. Kissing only. You can touch me, and I will only touch you above the shoulders. Drawn by a online ad, and the sexy guy that goes with it. Carrie  finds herself there on Wednesday. One kiss leads to two kisses, and two kisses urns into more. But can Carrie just stick to kissing only?
The Story Guy is a heartwarming read, but a heartbreaking read at the same time. This is a great book, and Miss Rivers is a great author.  I read this book within a few hours. It was hard to put down. I loved the plot and flow of this book, and I also loved the characters.
Brian takes care of his younger sister who can't do for herself. He works at a job that he doesn't like just so he can support her. I really love Brian because he put his life on hold just to take care of his sister. He was so afraid to start a relationship with someone, because he already had a lot on his plate.
I loved watching the build up of Carrie and Brian's relationship. I just wished it was a little more. The romance was sweet, but steamy at the same time! I am so excited to read more by Marry Ann Rivers! I hope I find a Story Guy one day. Until then I will reread this book. I highly recommend The Story Guy!


  1. Nice review. I like heartbreaking reads, they really grab me. So I think I'll pick this one up.
