#BookReview Letters To A War Zone by Lucy Felthouse #LGBTApril @cw1985

Tags: Short Story, Erotica, GLBT

When lonely insurance broker, Bailey, gets himself a new hobby, he ends up exchanging letters with a war zone. But he’s not expecting what happens next…

Bailey Hodgkiss is lonely and dissatisfied with his boring life as an insurance broker. In an attempt to shake things up a little, he signs up to a website to write to serving soldiers. He’s put in touch with Corporal Nick Rock, and over the course of a couple of letters, the two of them strike up a friendship. They begin to divulge things that they perhaps wouldn’t have said in person, including their preference for men.

Nick encourages Bailey to add more interests to his life. As a result, Bailey picks up his forgotten hobby, photography, and quickly decides to team it up with his other preferred interest, travel.

Booking a holiday to Rome is his biggest gesture towards a more exciting existence, and he eagerly looks forward to the trip. That is, until Nick says he’s coming home on leave, and it looks as though their respective trips will prevent them from meeting in person. Is there enough of a spark between them to push them to meet, or will their relationship remain on paper only?

Kay's Review

Bailey and Nick have been exchanging letters for a while and they develop an easy going friendship based on mutual respect and interest. When Bailey decides to take a a well-deserved holiday, he finds out that Nick is on his way back to England on a R&R break. The two arrange to meet up for the first time.

Although this is a short story, I enjoyed the easy going way in which Bailey's and Nick's relationship build up. By the time they actually met in person it was as if they'd know each other for years instead of just a few months.

While there is a love scene at the end, the focus of this story is on the development of their relationship. By the end, you are invested in the characters enough to want them to have a happy ending. I'm hoping to see more of these characters, perhaps in another instalment and hopefully from Nick's POV.

An enjoyable short story that left me wanting more.
