Call Me, Maybe: Sexual Caresses at an Airport by Liz Adams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Call Me, Maybe: Sexual Caresses at an Airport is a fabulous read. To use a quaint cliche, it's short but sweet. Definitely a fun bit to have when you just want to kick up your feet and relax with something clever and lighthearted.
I loved reading from Jonathan's point of view. He's curious, honest, creative, and still idealistic enough to chase his dreams, whether it's his writing or a love connection in another country. His thought process throughout the entire thing made sense, and even as the new twists came up (like Aliza challenging him, realizing they were both finding their sexual limits) he was honest about all of it while still maintaining the integrity of his experiment AND even as he knew that what was happening between them went much deeper than his theory.
And he made me laugh! Liz's writing got me genuinely enthusiastic at times, both the creativity and technical aspects, which I admit doesn't happen often. I loved this story because the writing was solid, the formatting and editing was great (which means there was nothing to distract me from the story), the characters were genuine, and the characters were mature and true to their natures. And Liz really did her research on what it's like to be a Psych student on a mission! Definitely impressive. It might say "sexual caresses at an airport," but it's about so much more! Definitely worth picking up.
