Absinthe by Winter Renshaw


The name on the screen was “Absinthe.”

I knew her as the sultry voice blowing up my phone for late night chats about Proust and Hemingway interspersed between the best phone sex I never knew I could have.

We’d never met.

Until the day she walked into my office, her cherry lips wrapped around a candy apple sucker and an all too familiar voice that said, “They said you wanted to see me, Principal Hawthorne?”
Susan’s Review: 4 stars
I love days like today where I can just lay around and devour a whole book. And devour is exactly what I did with Ford and Halston’s story.

This wasn’t exactly angsty, but it had a darker, secretive feel to it. I’m guessing that was because they met online and then when they finally met, it was sort of taboo for them to be together. I felt like they came together at the end much too easy. I wanted some anger or something for the time lost and the misunderstanding between their circumstances. I did cheer for the life Bree is living though 😉IMG_3554.PNG
