It all started with a serenade…

A family like Daniel’s and the solitary pursuit of musical excellence is enough to make a young man crazy. No wonder all Daniel Vouks dreams of is getting away. He knows his violin will take him places in life, but the only place he really wants to be is next door. He’s been in love with his neighbor since he was fourteen, but can he ever make her see him as more than just a lovesick kid?

V-Day is the story of a Valentine's Day weekend Daniel fears he may regret, but will never, ever forget.

Joey’s Review:
Short romances are hard for me to read because I find it hard to root for the couple in just a few scenes. Add in erotica and I often find myself unable to concentrate on the passions of two people I just don't know.

V-Day is 37 pages long. And Anne Holly really put those 37 pages to good use. We're quickly and succinctly introduced to Daniel, a college student and musical prodigy. Daniel is classic geek.

Next door to his family lives Mrs. Robinson. Err, Bronwyn, I mean. She's about ten years older than Daniel, and the unwitting focus of Daniel's unfulfilled longings. 

Annnd, I can't say much more. What I can share is that I found this story entertaining, I see-sawed between wanting to pinch Daniel's cheek and asking him out on a date. In a very short amount of space, a believable spark was ignited, and an enjoyable romance was born.

Joey's Rating:


  1. Thank you so much for reading V-Day, and I am thrilled you enjoyed it.

  2. Thanks to you, Anne, for a great read!
