Connections by Selena Kitt

Shy, lonely Cathy, who dropped out of college to spite her mother, now works in a local grocery store and makes phone calls – completely random phone calls to strangers – just to make a human connection. When a strange coincidence forces her to actually speak to the person on the other end of the phone one night, she is suddenly thrust back into the world, with all its risks and potential vulnerability. Will Seth be able to draw Cathy back into the land of the living?

This was a good free story, the author’s voice very readable, the pace good and the premise intriguing.

There was something dark and edgy about the protagonist who likes to make prank phone calls and wait silently until the receiver of her wordless attentions hangs up. She’s a well-rounded character in that you get to know a lot about her life but at the same time, she’s not your average girl—but then who is?

Making nuisance calls thrills her, she enjoys having the upper hand, until, that is, she calls Seth and meets her match.

I felt her tension about the unnerving coincidence when he says her name. The way she quickly has a rapport going with him is sweet and I could see why she relaxed with him the way she did. Seth is so cool about her random dialing and the way that has brought them together. It is odd but somehow hopelessly romantic and the book doesn’t disappoint as their relationship progresses.

Best Bits:

“City Morgue,” the voice says, “You kill ‘em, we chill ‘em.”

I’m desperate to hang up and break the connection, but the habit is too ingrained. He has to hang up first—and soon.

“Well, congratulations, I think you may be weirder than I am.”


I enjoyed Connections, it was well written and held a nice spark that set it apart from many other erotic romances around at the moment. I recommend grabbing a copy and I will be more than happy to read more by Selena Kitt.
