A digital short story that has a mysterious Italian guy at the center of the whole thing: Was Bri Clark thinking of me when she penned this? Welcome to a part of the week I love doing and reading, Digital short Saturday. Today is definitely a double header as I have two excellent short stories to bring to your attention. The second post today will be on Thad Brown’s The Smoking Gun Sisterhood/Chapter One/Biker Angel. I am glad I discovered both; they are both quality digital short stories and are worthy of being followed. Let’s get to the action of Bri Clark’s Caffe Seduzione. What does she have between the virtual covers?
“Antony is an Italian businessman with conflicting upbringings...a child of a mafia don killed when he was an adolescent, then the adopted child of hardworking Italian restaurant owners. When things don't go as easy as he likes, he reverts back to family contacts to get what he wants and Antony wants Colleen.
Colleen is an average mother and wife living in Treasure Valley, Idaho. Upon meeting a charming Antony Deluca in a coffee shop an emotional digital affair begins. However, Colleen's conscience intercedes and she ends communication with Antony. Then Colleen's husband produces a trip to Italy, Rome Italy. The very city Antony resides in.
Is it fate... or something more sinister bringing them together? “
Here is a little something about the author;
“Bri Clark is a real example of redemption and renewal. Growing penniless in the South, Bri learned street smarts while caring for her brother in a broken home. She watched her mother work several jobs to care for their small family. Once her brother could fend for himself, Bri moved on to a series of bad choices including leaving school and living on her own. Rebelliousness was a strong understatement to describe those formative years. As a teenager, her wakeup call came from a fight with brass knuckles and a judge that gave her a choice of shaping up or spending time in jail. She took that opportunity and found a way to moved up from the streets. She ended up co-owning an extremely successful construction business. She lived the high life until the real estate crash when she lost everything. She moved west and found herself living with her husband and 4 kids in a 900 spare foot apartment. She now fills her time, writing, blogging, leading a group of frugal shoppers and sharing her southern culture. Her unique background gives her writing a raw sensibility. She understands what it takes to overcome life‘s obstacles. She often tells friends, ―I can do poor. I‘m good at poor. It‘s prosperity that I‘m not used to.‖ Bri and her husband Chris live in Boise. Bri is known as the Belle of Boise for her true southern accent, bold demeanor and hospitable nature.”
Great characters, excellent action, nice twists and an ending that has made me one happy reader, I want more! I am glad to see that she is making this a series, I love them. Colleen, her husband and Antony make a nice triangle. Bri Clark has touched all the necessary bases with this digital short. Her descriptive ability drew me in right away and made me feel and understand what Colleen was going through. The plotline was laid out well and executed nicely; she helped paint a nice picture and put the right images in my head. The range of emotions that I went through in such a short period of time amazed me. I don’t hesitate at all to say download this to whatever ereader or smartphone you like to use. The story is a nice quick read and can be enjoyed anywhere.
