I read and review whatever strikes my fancy and many things strike my fancy. I'm particularly fond of Young Adult, New Adult, dystopian tales, and mystery thrillers. Easily distracted by the newest book in the shelf.

Nachos & Hash

Nachos & Hash - Brandon Witt Nachos and Hash is a very sweet novella exploring love at first sight between two young men who have absolutely nothing in common, other than their inexplicable mutual attraction. Darwin and Cody, the two main characters from opposite sides of the track, are both very genuine and likable, but I wish they had been more fully developed. The story tackles some very complex issues so, for me, it felt a bit rushed and it was hard to see Cody diving headlong into such extremely self-destructive behavior based on the provocations as presented in the story. His personality and his actions just didn’t sync with me.

That aside, the series has a number of interesting characters which have the potential for some entertaining future stories.
