Review by Linda Yau

Heartbeat is about Sean a Navy SEAL, who is in, what he perceives to be a one sided love for his foster brother, Jacob who is a major league baseball player. Nothing could prepare for what would happen when Sean learns that Jacob was kidnapped by a fan. Sean with his team of army friends forms a rescue mission to save Jacob. Upon rescue, the road to recovery is fraught with pit stops and blond hair bodyguards, while Sean and Jacob form a relationship that is more than brotherly.

What a read. I can’t say that I enjoyed reading this story as much as I normally do. As a one-shot, the characters are developed for that purpose and the premises of the plot was a draw, but upon reading the story, I discover there are plot awkwardness and syntax confusion. An example is this, reading the word, “hoss,” in the place of ‘boss,’ with a Texas accent? I was wondering if there was a typo, because I cannot fathom how that would sound. Another confusion I had was the time change, as suddenly that Jacob is recuperating, the time seem to change when Sean would have to sneak into Jacob’s home to see him. I was confused by the introduction of some characters and the disappearance of other characters. Let’s just say that this story had some promise, but was lost within the author’s attempt to try and tell a story with too few words and assume the reader would understand.

This is an ebook at Torque Press, it is downloadable here and here is an excerpt.
